TUCSON, Ariz., June 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) today announced that the independent inspectors of elections, IVS Associates, Inc., have certified the voting results of the Company's Annual Meeting held on June 15, 2009, confirming the preliminary results reported by Providence on June 15, 2009. The certified results show that Providence stockholders, by a wide margin, re-elected to the Providence Board of Directors both of the Company's incumbent director nominees, Fletcher Jay McCusker and Kristi L. Meints. Excluding shares held by the dissident group, Providence's director nominees received approximately 86.1% and 82.8%, respectively, of the shares represented at the meeting while the dissident group received less than 2%. In total, Providence's director nominees received 68.3% and 65.7%, respectively, of the shares that were represented at the meeting.

Stockholders also ratified KPMG LLP as Providence's independent auditors, with affirmative votes from approximately 95.9% of the shares that were represented at the meeting.

"We sincerely appreciate the overwhelming support of our stockholders during the recent contested election," said Fletcher Jay McCusker, Providence's CEO. "We regret that Providence and its stockholders had to endure a costly and disruptive proxy contest and we look forward to returning our full attention to growing our business and increasing stockholder value as we continue to position Providence as the premier provider and manager of home and community based care and non-emergency transportation management."

Final vote totals will be included in the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2009 to be filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
