RELM Holdings Inc. Has Purchased 76% of Access Versalign Inc.

WILMINGTON, DE--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - RELM HOLDINGS INC. (PINKSHEETS: RELM) announces the restructuring of the purchase of Access Versalign Inc. (AVI) and rescinds the planned merger that was announced on May 5, 2009.

Previously, both AVI and RELM agreed to merge through a share exchange; however, it was later determined that the acquisition of a 76% majority interest in AVI would better suit the relationship and planned future acquisitions. AVI shareholders will receive 14.02 shares of RELM in this transaction as was previously announced. AVI is a consolidated subsidiary of RELM and the senior management team of AVI will also continue to oversee the day to day operations of RELM.

As announced earlier, this acquisition will give RELM access to cash flows and expanded business opportunities in the information technology industry. In 2008, on a pro-forma basis, AVI had over $9 million in assets as a consolidated company and generated $2.5 million in revenue with $319,680 in EBITDA. Through the second quarter of 2009 AVI's wholly-owned subsidiary, Versalign Inc., produced total revenue of $1.1 million with an EBITDA of $142,680 and pretax income of $24,245. RELM valued 100% of AVI at $3,196,800 at the end of 2008.

AVI was organized in 2008 and acquired 100% of Versalign on February 20, 2009. Versalign was founded in 1985 and currently provides targeted information technology solutions for corporate, professional and governmental clients in the Mid-Atlantic region. The proprietary BCLOC financing product of $6 million was used to help restructure the Versalign bank loan, which is expected to provide $2.255 million in new working capital and funds to pay off the existing $3.745 million bank loan.

This acquisition increases RELM's employee base to over 25 employees and it expects to bring continued growth because in the beginning of the second quarter of 2009, Access Versalign secured more than $200,000 in incremental business and expects to maintain a positive profit margin throughout the balance of 2009.
