Document Security Systems (NYSEMKT:DSS) announced it has successfully closed its previously announced merger with intellectual property management firm Lexington Technology Group, Inc. (LTG). DSS will continue trading on the NYSE MKT under its current symbol, "DSS."

DSS will be managed by an executive team led by CEO Jeff Ronaldi.
