Unilabs announces that it has concluded an agreement to acquire its second clinical testing laboratory in Portugal. This agreement relates to a laboratory and its patient service centers, which presently achieve revenues of Euros 4.2 million per year and are located in a major city. The laboratory holds a significant market share in its area, also providing services to hospitals and private clinics.

According to the agreement, Unilabs acquires a 100% interest in the capital of the laboratory. The transaction will be effective on June 1, 2006.

For Unilabs, this latest acquisition represents a further step towards reaching a critical mass that will allow the realization of further synergies in Portugal, as well as the possibility to develop its services to the private clinical and hospital segments.
