ERUC has done extensive due diligence on the group and has found them to be a perfect match both urgent care and the healthcare industry. By recommendation of our new merger and acquisition advisors ERUC will be focusing on the aspect of the business that takes advantage of our nationwide network contracts with major health plans, as well as the extensive ERUC name branding. Expansion will begin with managing centers rather than owning them. Mr. Solomon also noted that the Board has agreed to extend the deadline for the preferred share exchange.
