PRC, LLC, a leading provider of outsourced customer management services, announced today that PRC and its affiliated debtors have completed their financial restructuring and successfully emerged from Chapter 11.

Upon consummation of the Plan and PRC's emergence from Chapter 11, a significant part of PRC's debt was converted into equity and PRC's prepetition senior and second lien secured lenders became PRC's equity holders through a private holding company. The largest equity holders are investment firms that are affiliates of Babson Capital Management, LLC, Bayside Capital and Silver Point Capital. This group is also providing post-emergence credit facilities for PRC's future operating and capital funding requirements.

Jerry McElhatton, PRC's CEO, expressed appreciation for the support of PRC's clients through the reorganization period. "Our clients demonstrated their belief in PRC and in the quality of our services. I want to thank them on behalf of PRC's Board and management team," he said. Mr. McElhatton added, "We are emerging as a revitalized company, cash flow positive, with a seasoned management team, a strengthened balance sheet and the financial resources and operational structure necessary to compete effectively in today's dynamic marketplace." Mr. McElhatton noted that, during the course of the reorganization, several major clients showed their confidence in PRC by agreeing to renew their service agreements with PRC for customer care, sales and marketing programs.

He also recognized the hard work and dedication of PRC's employees and management. "Our team has remained highly focused on providing excellent service to our clients and their customers. The combination of client support and employee dedication allowed the restructuring process to remain seamless to our operation through the comparatively short Chapter 11 process." He noted that PRC and its debtor affiliates emerged from Chapter 11 in a little over five months after filing their Chapter 11 petitions on January 23, 2008.
