Cross Country Healthcare Completes Sale of Its Clinical Trial Services Business

Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. has announced that it has completed the previously announced sale of its clinical trial services business to ICON plc for $52 million, plus an earn-out of up to $3.75 million related to certain performance-based milestones. Cross Country Healthcare used a portion of the net proceeds from this transaction to repay all $29.3 million of its outstanding bank debt.

As a result of this sale, Cross Country Healthcare's clinical trial services business segment will become discontinued operations and will be reported as such on its financial statements for all applicable periods presented in the Company's upcoming financial reporting for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

"Our divestiture of this business was based on an extensive review of our operations and the changing landscape in the pharmaceutical R&D outsourcing industry. Having successfully completed this transaction, we will narrow our focus and concentrate our resources on our core nurse and allied staffing and our physician staffing businesses, which pro forma would represent about 90% of our consolidated revenue," said Joseph A. Boshart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. "I also want to wish our outstanding clinical trial service team much success in the future," added Mr. Boshart.
