Greenbelt, MD – March 9, 2010 – Key Principal Partners Corp. (“KPP”), a $1 billion private investment firm, announced today its exit from OAO Technology Solutions, Inc. (OAOT). OAOT provides managed IT solutions, including application management, IT infrastructure support and professional staffing to global outsourcers and major corporations in North America and Europe. KPP’s original investment of $13.5 million in subordinated debt and common stock in December 2003, in a transaction led by J.F. Lehman & Company, helped OAOT complete a take-private transaction. Through privatization, the company saved upwards of $1 million per year in “public company” costs.
