Ryan Signs Ten Year Corporate Headquarters Lease at Dallas Galleria

Press Release Oct 13, 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 that the Firm has signed a ten year lease extension on its Dallas headquarters, which includes significant expansion rights to support the Firm's continued rapid growth. Jim Duggan of Duggan Realty Advisors represented Ryan in the transaction.

The agreement includes the right to acquire additional floors in Three Galleria Tower, one of North Dallas' premier corporate locations. This will enable the Firm to expand on the current 101,260 square foot headquarters and provide additional world-class amenities that will benefit the Firm's Fortune 1000 clients. The expansion has added a high-tech, state-of-the-art conference and training center for client seminars and professional development.

This agreement will also significantly enhance the Firm's client data security and recovery infrastructure by expanding the Dallas data center, including a new auxiliary power generator. Ryan is one of only a few tax consulting firms who have met the rigorous Data Security Standard (DSS) set forth by the PCI Security Standards Council, providing an important security validation for clients hiring a tax consultant to review millions of credit card transactions.

"This new lease marks another important milestone in the execution of our strategic growth plan, as well as our commitment to capturing additional market share through enhanced services and geographic expansion," said G. Brint Ryan, Managing Principal of Ryan. "The lease extension will provide the necessary infrastructure to support our future revenue growth and the continued acquisition of premier tax talent to best serve our clients."
