Press Release Dec 10, 2008

Dallas, Texas - Ryan, the leading tax services firm in North America, with the largest transaction tax practice in the United States and Canada, today announced the Firm’s international expansion into Europe with the opening of a new office in London, England. The central London office will be under the direction of Mr. Michael Camburn, an experienced tax professional with more than 15 years of experience in Value-Added Tax (VAT) automation, as well as customs and foreign trade advisory services. Mr. Camburn will manage a strategic growth plan to rapidly capture additional European market share while ensuring quality client service and delivery.

Ryan’s United Kingdom (UK) operations will provide companies combined access to the highest level of European, Canadian, and U.S. tax services with specialized expertise in VAT and transaction tax automation. The UK operation is already supporting a number of large global companies with tax automation services and plans to aggressively acquire premier European tax talent to support its existing pipeline of tax automation engagements.

“Ryan already provides tax services to many of the world’s leading global companies,” said Michael Camburn, Managing Director of Ryan’s UK Operations. “The trust that Ryan has earned by delivering consistent results for these multinational clients has played a major role in supporting our international expansion and opening of the London office.”

“Ryan has been a valued Sabrix partner and has teamed with us to implement the Sabrix Application Suite in a number of global deployments at multinational corporations in the United States,” said Mehrdad Talaifar, Vice President of the Sabrix Partner Network. “Now, Ryan’s UK team will bring that same wealth of tax consulting expertise as well as industry best practices to global deployments of tax technology in the European market.”

“The opening of our London office is one of the most important milestones in our strategic growth plan for capturing additional market share through international expansion,” said G. Brint Ryan, Managing Principal of Ryan. “We will continue to build new operations in those countries where our premier global clients operate, and acquire the most seasoned international tax talent to best serve their needs.”
