Humana Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire Emcore Professional Employers, Inc.
HANOVER, Md., May 11, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Humana Trans Services Holding Corporation (OTCBB:HTSC) (http://www.humanaservices.com), a firm principally engaged in employee leasing and recruitment services, announces that it has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding common stock of Emcore Professional Employers, Inc., a corporation based in Greenville, North Carolina in exchange for 60% of the outstanding common shares of Humana. Emcore, like Humana, is a company engaged in the business of Human Resources Organization (H.R.O.)/Professional Employers Organization (P.E.O.) Services. Emcore currently processes approximately $50,000,000 in payroll revenue and is in the final stages of negotiating the acquisition of a P.E.O. based in Atlanta, Georgia, that processes an additional approximately $36,000,000 in payroll revenues. Assuming the acquisition by Emcore of the Georgia based P.E.O. is completed, the payroll revenue of Humana upon acquiring the stock of Emcore would exceed $100,000,000. An Emcore/Humana combination will create a state-of-the-art human resource outsourcing company that offers a wide variety of products and services. The combination of companies will be able to cross-sell each company's client base the basic niche services each company was offering separately, thus creating a cost effective, premium level of price and service.
