Providence Service Corporation Rebuts False and Misleading Statements Contained in Proxy Statement Filed by the Avalon Group

TUCSON, Ariz., May 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) today announced that, after a careful review of the proxy statement filed last week by the Avalon Group with the Securities and Exchange Commission, it believes that the Avalon Group's proxy statement contains numerous false and misleading statements. Accordingly, Providence believes that it is necessary for it to correct the public record with respect to certain fundamental issues and has publicly filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a non-exhaustive list of the numerous false and misleading statements that it believes are contained in Avalon's Proxy Statement.

"We are disappointed that the Avalon Group has chosen to fill their proxy statement with numerous false and misleading statements, innuendo, half-truths, and facts and data taken completely out of context and presented in a false and misleading manner," said Fletcher Jay McCusker, Providence's Chairman and CEO. "We believe that the Avalon Group's use of false and misleading statements to buttress their arguments shows the level of desperation that they have reached to justify their costly and disruptive proxy contest and to distract our stockholders from focusing on the significant and substantial progress we are making. As our record revenues and earnings for the first quarter of 2009 demonstrates, with earnings per share up 50% over the comparable prior year period, we are starting to realize the benefits of many of the actions we have implemented to enhance Providence's prospects and profitability. Given such progress, it is unfortunate that we have to spend time and money on the Avalon Group's costly and distracting proxy contest."
