The financial terms of the transaction, were not disclosed. Both companies are now a wholly-owned subsidiary of ABI Acquisition Holdings.

"Our newly combined structure and capital base has already generated considerable excitement in the marketplace," noted Joe McGhee, ABI's chairman and chief executive officer.

The response from our customers, business partners and employees has been overwhelmingly positive.
