Antitrust Matters

 

On February 24, 2006, SIRVA, Inc. (“SIRVA”) announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Allied Freight Forwarding, Inc. (“Allied Freight”), had entered into a Plea Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the U.S. government, pursuant to which Allied Freight entered pleas of guilty to two counts of conspiracy to restrain trade, in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act, 15 U.S.C §1. Pursuant to the Agreement, Allied Freight is required to pay a fine of $1,043,000 to the United States. SIRVA fully reserved for this fine in its 2004 financial statements. The Agreement resolves the criminal charges against Allied Freight related to the actions of certain former Allied Freight employees between April 2000 and October 2001.

 

Also on February 24, 2006, SIRVA announced that the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission decided not to take any further steps in an investigation concerning the moving operations conducted by SIRVA (Australia) Pty. Ltd. (“SIRVA Australia”), a former wholly-owned subsidiary of SIRVA. In connection with the November 30, 2005 sale of its Australian records management operations, SIRVA sold its ownership interest in SIRVA Australia, after it moved the moving services operations to SIRVA Pty. Ltd., which remains a wholly-owned subsidiary of SIRVA.

 

A copy of SIRVA’s press release, dated February 24, 2006, which announced these matters, is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Other Matters

 

SIRVA wishes to clarify two matters previously disclosed in its proxy statement, dated November 30, 2005, relating to its 2005 annual meeting of stockholders. First, SIRVA wishes to make clear that its corporate governance guidelines are available on its website and can be accessed at www.sirva.com by clicking on the link for “Investors,” followed by the link for “Corporate Governance” and then the link for “Guidelines.”  Second, SIRVA wishes to make clear that Carl T. Stocker, SIRVA's Vice Chairman, presided at regularly scheduled executive sessions of the non-management directors until SIRVA’s board of directors elected John R. Miller as Chairman on January 1, 2006. As an independent director, Mr. Miller will now preside over regularly scheduled meetings of the non-management directors.
