Matrix Service Company Completes Industrial Cleaning Acquisition

TULSA, Okla., Jan. 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matrix Service Company (Nasdaq:MTRX) announced today that its subsidiary, Matrix Service Inc., acquired certain assets and employees from Pelichem Industrial Cleaning Services, LLC ("Pelichem") on December 31, 2012. Pelichem is a privately-owned industrial cleaning services provider based in Reserve, Louisiana, who has served refining and petrochemical customers for over ten years. This acquisition furthers our strategic plans to grow the industrial cleaning business. While the terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, the acquisition purchase price was less than $10 million and funded with cash on hand.

We welcome their employees to the Matrix Service family and look forward to continuing to provide their customers with safe, high quality services. This acquisition significantly expands our industrial cleaning business and further extends our geographic reach along the Gulf Coast. We are very excited about this acquisition and believe our combined strengths will provide opportunities for growth."

With this transaction, Matrix Service adds a new operating facility in Reserve, Louisiana along with our existing industrial cleaning facilities in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Kansas City, Missouri, and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
