Aldridge Enters Austin Market With Acquisition of Clyde Bennett & Associates

Provider of EMR Software Solutions and IT Support Will Operate as an Aldridge
Subsidiary

HOUSTON and AUSTIN, Texas, June 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aldridge
(www.aldridge.com), a leading provider of information technology (IT)
outsourcing with elite first-response support, today established a strong
foothold in the important Austin, Texas market. Aldridge announced the
completion of its acquisition of Clyde Bennett & Associates (www.cwbserv.com),
a leading reseller of electronic medical records (EMR) solutions that also
provides IT services for medical practices throughout the United States.

  *Aldridge has retained the Clyde Bennett & Associates name for its new
    Austin subsidiary.
  *The acquired company's founder, Clyde Bennett, remains as President of the
    subsidiary.
  *Aldridge has retained all Clyde Bennett & Associates employees.

"Austin is a hotbed of small and midsize businesses (SMBs) that are
experiencing rapid growth, so it has been on our strategic roadmap for some
time," said Aldridge President and COO Patrick Wiley. "We are excited about
providing simplified IT operations, faster issue response and Aldridge's
senior knowledge to the thousands of potential client companies in Austin."

For the past five years, Austin has ranked number one among major U.S. markets
on The Business Journals' ranking of small-business vitality. In 2014,
Aldridge's other two core markets, Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth, are ranked
number five and number 13 on the list respectively.

"Joining with Aldridge provides our company the boost of technical resources
necessary to sustain our continued growth," Bennett said. "We look forward to
expanding our EMR software solutions to medical practices in Houston and
Dallas as well."

This is the second acquisition in less than a month for Aldridge, which
recently announced the acquisition of Houston-based IS Support, Inc. Clyde
Bennett & Associates adds deep capabilities in healthcare, which is a market
that Aldridge considers a growth opportunity.

"The healthcare market is undergoing rapid technology transformation due to
the government incentives related to electronic medical records, and Clyde
Bennett & Associates is well positioned to guide medical practices through
that complex process," said Wiley. "It has never been more important for
medical practices to leverage IT investment to contain costs while maintaining
the highest patient care standards."

Access to Aldridge's mature and growing managed services practice will enable
Clyde Bennett & Associates to penetrate further into medical practices
throughout the U.S.

employees and serves more than 600 clients throughout the United States.
