Tactical Air Defense Services Acquires Right to 10% Minority Interest in Tactical Air Support; Enters into Letter of Intent to Pursue Key Military Contract
Carson City, NV- July 28, 2011 - Tactical Air Defense Services, Inc. (OTCQB: TADF), an Aerospace/Defense Services contractor that offers tactical aviation services, aerial refueling, aircraft maintenance, and other Aerospace/Defense services to the United States and Foreign militaries and agencies, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter of intent (LOI) with Tactical Air Support, Inc. (Tac-Air) to pursue a multi-year Military Contract (the Military Contract) and has acquired the right to purchase ten percent (10%) of the outstanding equity of Tac-Air through the provision of $315,000 in corporate funding (the Investment Funds).
The Investment Funds provided by TADF will be used by Tac-Air to prepare and submit a bid that has been solicited to the U.S. Department of Defense to provide tactical aviation services and, if successful, be ready to execute the Military Contract. Pursuant to the LOI, TADF and Tac-Air shall share 30/70 all future profits derived from the Military Contract. We believe that Tac-Air has the personnel to execute the Military Contract and that TADF has the resources to support the Military Contract and the related bidding process. If successful in being awarded all or part of the Military Contract, TADF believes that it can generate gross revenues of several million dollars for TADF and Tac-Air in the aggregate, per year, throughout the term of the Military Contract.
In addition, pursuant to the LOI and the underlying promissory note (the Note) governing the Investment Funds, TADF maintains the right to convert the Note into a ten percent (10%) ownership interest in Tac-Airs existing common stock.
As disclosed in TADFs previous filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, the Parties previously entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger) related to the proposed merger between the Parties, however, the Merger had not closed prior to the termination period and the related agreement has since expired. In the event that TADF and Tac-Air close the Merger between the companies while the Military Contract is in operation, the combined financial benefit of the Note and ownership of the Military Contract shall inure to the combined entity.
Alexis C. Korybut, Chief Executive Officer of TADF, stated, We are very pleased to have signed the LOI with Tac-Air to jointly pursue the Military Contract and to have provided the Investment Funds to acquire 10% of Tac-Air. We believe these transactions demonstrate the joint and continued commitment of both parties to working together towards a beneficial common goal. Should we be successful in winning the Military Contract, not only will we have acquired a steady and significant revenue stream, but we will have successfully positioned our combined companies to compete very effectively for additional contracts from both the U.S. and foreign militaries.
