DRYCLEAN USA, Inc. (AMEX: DCU), announced that Alan I. Greenstein, who joined the Company recently as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, had acquired a 21.5% equity position in the Company from the Company's two principal stockholders.

In announcing the transaction, Michael Steiner, President of DRYCLEAN USA, noted that: "Mr. Greenstein brings to the Company a wealth of experience in revenue growth strategies earned as an entrepreneur of a number of successful businesses, including a Thrifty Car Rental franchise and a chain of retail dry cleaning and laundry stores in Southeast Florida. Mr. Greenstein, with a partner, acquired a Thrifty Car Rental business in 2001 with an existing fleet of 1,800 vehicles. Within three years, the franchise grew to a fleet of 7,500 vehicles with revenues exceeding $82 million. The business was then acquired by Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc., the national franchisor. Previously, Mr. Greenstein developed a chain of retail dry cleaning and laundry stores and directed all aspects of their sales and marketing and operations." Mr. Steiner added, "In addition to his sales responsibilities, Mr. Greenstein will also be charged with examining growth opportunities for our Company, including through acquisitions." Separately, the Company announced the expansion of the distribution territory for its existing product lines. Venerando Indeliccto, Chief Financial Officer, stated: "The Company now has increased representation for its commercial laundry equipment in Tampa Bay, Orlando and Jacksonville in addition to its historical southeast Florida base." Several additional sales engineers, specializing in commercial laundry equipment were added to cover the new territory. Mr. Greenstein, under whose auspices this expansion will take place, said: "I am very excited about the future prospects of the Company and am looking forward to helping the Company increase its revenues and achieve its goals."
