February 13, 2008

II Rep-Z, Inc., better known as Microban Systems, Inc. and Unsmoke Systems, and Dri-Eaz Products, Inc. have entered into a definitive agreement to merge operations. The merger is effective immediately.

“The strategic combination of II Rep-Z’s specialty chemical business with Dri-Eaz’s drying equipment manufacturing business creates an ideal platform for providing customers with a full range of advanced property loss reduction solutions,” said Bill Bruders, Dri-Eaz president. “The structure of this transaction, including the significant equity stake II Rep-Z shareholders are taking in Dri-Eaz and the caliber and experience of this management team, demonstrate our commitment to bring together the unique strengths of both organizations to serve the evolving needs of disaster restoration, cleaning, and facilities professionals.”

II Rep-Z’s Unsmoke and Microban Systems brands and the Dri-Eaz brand will be housed under an overarching corporate entity called Legend Brands. Cliff Zlotnik, current chairman of II Rep-Z, will participate with the Legend Brands board of directors.
