PTA Holdings, Inc. Completes Due Diligence On Eggspress Acquisition & Expects Closing Transaction During Q1 2013

PHOENIX, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PTA Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets: PTAH) announced today that it has completed due diligence for the purchase of Eggspress, an Iowa based motor carrier serving the egg and agricultural industry. Eggspress will strengthen the company's service capability as it expands its footprint servicing the distribution of these products throughout the Midwest.

Leonard J. Lewensohn, Chief Executive Officer stated that "we are making real progress as the company pursues its acquisition roll-up strategy.  The Eggspress deal will bring an expected revenue base of approximately 3-5 million dollars annually to our company along with a blue-chip customer base."  He further stated that, "PTA Holdings, Inc. will continue its focus on expanding the business by implementing its targeted acquisition strategy of transportation companies."

Matthew Spafford, CEO of Eggspress states, "We are pleased to bring Eggspress into PTA Holdings, Inc.  along with Nortford, a sister company primarily serving the Egg industry.  Iowa has regained the distinction of being the number one egg producing state and the Iowa Egg Council estimates that there are over 40 million layers producing 9.5 billion eggs annually.  The multiplier impacts on the Iowa economy are even more impressive with total labor income of $160 million and value added of $224 million attributable to direct and indirect impacts of the egg industry on the Iowa economy. Our combined companies are strategically positioned to capitalize on our expanded service capabilities."
