Date:5/5/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Lombard Investments, Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of 18% of Professional Services, Inc. ("PSI" or the "Company"), owner and operator of The Medical City, a leading, private tertiary-care hospital in the Philippines. Its facilities include a 500 bed hospital complex (soon to be expanded to 750 beds) and 280 medical clinics.

PSI is managed by a group of leading physicians and other professionals led by Alfredo R.A. Bengzon, a former Secretary of Health and Dean of the prestigious Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health in the Philippines. The management team's recent achievements include securing as of February 2007 the Joint Commission International Accreditation ("JCIA"), the most widely recognized international healthcare certificate. The Medical City is one of only two hospitals in the Philippines to receive such a distinction.

Mr. Pote Videt, Managing Director of Lombard Investments, Inc., said, "Lombard is pleased to become a long-term investor and board member of PSI. The Medical City is well-positioned to benefit from the strong domestic demand for private healthcare as well as a growing international medical tourism industry. Through Lombard's representation on the board of directors of the Company, we look forward to many years of fruitful co-operation."
