American Spectrum Reduces Annual Cost $500,000 By Relocating Accounting Department From California To Houston, TX

American Spectrum Realty, Inc. (AMEX:AQQ)(“the Company”), a real estate investment and management company headquartered in Houston, announced today that the Company plans to reduce annual cost $500,000 by transitioning the accounting department from California to Houston, TX.

This restructuring is part of a company-wide effort to reduce redundancy between its Houston and California office locations and provide more efficient service to third-party management clients. Houston’s low cost of living, central location, and rich employment pool of qualified applicants were all factors in the relocation decision. The plan includes the elimination of several mid-management positions, as well as bringing IT support in-house to reduce outsourced service fees. The Company intends to implement the remainder of these cost-cutting changes throughout the month of September.

American Spectrum is always seeking ways to provide better service to its customers and clients and this decision is consistent with the Company’s long term strategic plan to reduce expenses and grow its third-party management business. “American Spectrum represents owners all over the United States and it’s important that we are accessible and responsive to clients on both coasts. Not only will this transition save the Company a significant amount of money, but we will be better equipped to provide efficient and reliable service,” says ASR President and CEO William J. Carden.
