OSI Provides Update on Acquisition

Wednesday, October 05, 2005
Offshore Systems International Ltd. is progressing with the due diligence process to acquire a United States defense contracting company, and is well underway in negotiating definitive agreements for the transaction. OSI first announced a non-binding letter of intent to purchase the target company on July 11, 2005. "The process is going very well," said President and CEO John Jacobson. "Although it is taking longer than initially anticipated, discussions have been and continue to be very positive." Jacobson said that this is a very complicated acquisition. "The target company operates in a heavily regulated field and while the regulatory approval process is proving more complex than we anticipated in July, we're optimistic and excited about where this process is leading and the progress we're making." The acquisition is expected to be accretive, and to approximately double OSI's revenue and employee base. The target company, with multiple offices in the United States, is a supplier of technology and services to the U.S. Department of Defense and key defense prime contractors.
