NEW YORK and OAKLAND, California, December 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

SuperCom (NASDAQ: SPCB), a global provider of secure solutions for the e-Government, Public Safety, HealthCare, and Finance sectors announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Leaders in Community Alternatives, Inc.

For 2015, LCA is expected to generate more than $9 million in revenues, be profitable, and achieve double-digit revenue growth. The company's revenue base is recurring and primarily derived from contracts with various government agencies in the U.S.

Linda Connelly, LCA's founder and Chief Executive Officer commented, "LCA is very excited to partner with SuperCom. The synergy between our two organizations is extraordinary and will continue the high quality and innovative service offerings that LCA has provided as an industry leader for over 24 years. Our combined strengths will empower us to contribute in a far more impactful way to the important positive changes underway in the criminal justice system." Linda Connelly will continue as CEO of LCA after the acquisition.

In consideration for the acquisition, SuperCom will pay approximately $3 million in cash at closing and contingent earn-out payments based on certain revenue targets over the next three years. SuperCom expects to close the acquisition in January 2016, subject to customary closing conditions.
