    Avendra Adds and Renews Dozens of Suppliers for its

    Core Procurement Programs

    ROCKVILLE, MD June 7, 2004 Avendra LLC, the hospitality industry’s leading procurement services company with nearly $2 billion in purchasing volume, announced

    today it has reached agreements with over 50 suppliers in the first four months of 2004.

    These high quality suppliers will become part of Avendra’s available programs and are

    leaders in their respective product and service categories.

Avendra offers its customers comprehensive procurement solutions and unparalleled

    expertise. Its core programs are comprised of contracts with over 900 suppliers offering

    quality, service level guarantees, and significant cost savings. Further, Avendra’s quality assurance team ensures its customers receive the specified quality through hundreds of

    yearly on-site audits in manufacturing plants, distribution centers and at customer

    locations. Avendra's customer support teams leverage proprietary reporting capabilities

    to ensure customer satisfaction by providing additional analysis and expert advice

    around purchasing behavior and operations.

Avendra’s contracting professionals specialize in contracting for a discrete set of

    products or services. Scott Hollis, senior vice president of procurement for Avendra

    explains, “We have dozens of subject matter experts bringing a specialized

    understanding of their particular areas to the strategic contracting process. For example,

the person responsible for negotiating our shrimp contracts is an expert on the product

    in many ways: industry specific knowledge of how the product is handled and used;

    insight, understanding and access to supply chain operations; customer service level

    needs as well as value pricing, all of which are imbedded in the contracting process and

    result in the best shrimp program for our customers. This level of knowledge and

    experience is found across all of our contracting associates whether they contract for

    shrimp, sanitizing chemicals, linens, toner cartridges or any of the other products and

    services that we have under contract.”

Regarding the agreements completed this year Hollis comments, “We are proud to

    renew old relationships as well as add new, prestigious suppliers to our offering. These

    suppliers represent the best in the market. They were selected for their strong

    reputations, respected brands, quality products and services, innovation and

    commitment to serving customers, and we look forward to working with them.”
