CLEARWATER, Fla., May 19, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As previously announced, ALAS (Pink Sheets:VDSC) has acquired in a stock only exchange, 100% of the shares and assets of SAENZ CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation, and its $20 million in assets.

SAENZ has offices in England, Greece and Turkey, operating successfully and profitable for 25 years in the Mediterranean area chartering their own fleet of yachts.

Peter Villiotis, CEO of SAENZ stated, "SAENZ and its competitors in the Mediterranean market have experienced a decrease in revenue from operations over the last few years primarily due to the economy and specifically due to the large number of charter operators in the Greek Islands. Our revenue from operations in 2009 was $4.357 million US dollars with $894,348 US dollars net profit and operating revenue in 2010 was $4.502 million US dollars with a net profit of $1,006,743 US dollars from operations. Although we have always maintained a profit, we expect to return to the higher revenue and profit we have experienced in the past by taking advantage of the market in the Caribbean and will reposition our yacht charter operations to Florida."

Edwin Salmon, ALAS CEO stated, "I continue to be impressed with the extensive knowledge and experience that Peter brings to ALAS."
