3/23/2004 Proxy Information

Frederick B. Hegi served as interim President and Chief Executive Officer of United Stationers Inc. from November 1996 until May 1997.

In connection with his employment, the Company and USSC required Mr. Gochnauer to relocate from California to be near the Company’s headquarters in the Chicago, Illinois area. Pursuant to corporate policies relating to such relocations at Company request, the Company’s subsidiary, USSC, guaranteed Mr. Gochnauer a minimum sale price for his former California residence equal to its market value as of the time of his mid-2002 employment commencement, based on the average of separate independent appraisals. When his former residence had not sold after a number of months on the market, the Company determined it would be in its best interests to assume ownership of the property, so as to manage directly its marketing and sale and avoid any continuing distraction to Mr. Gochnauer. As a result, USSC purchased the residence from Mr. Gochnauer and his spouse on July 30, 2003 for a purchase price of $3,050,000, equal to the average of the appraised values, plus closing costs of approximately $3,135, consistent with those customarily apportioned to a purchaser, and related legal fees. USSC thereafter sold the property on October 10, 2003 for a gross cash purchase price of $2,800,000, with net proceeds to USSC after closing costs of approximately $2,651,841.
