Corporate Resource Services, Inc. (OTCBB:CRRS) (“CRS”) today announced that it completed its acquisition of the assets of Integrated Consulting Group of New York, LLC, which also conducts business as Impact Staffing (“ICGNY”), through a foreclosure sale pursuant to Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. The purchase price for the assets of ICGNY included the repayment of outstanding obligations of ICGNY under its credit facility, the assumption of certain other liabilities, and the payment of a fixed percentage of gross sales over a five year period. The effective date for the acquisition was December 14, 2010. CRS acquired the assets of ICGNY through a newly formed, wholly owned subsidiary. In connection with the acquisition, the acquiring subsidiary entered into a new $4.2 million secured revolving credit facility and a $120,000 secured term loan facility.
