VERSAR ANNOUNCES STRATEGIC RESTRUCTURING OF VERSAR LABORATORIES TO IMPROVE PROFITABILITY

VERSAR ANNOUNCES STRATEGIC RESTRUCTURING OF VERSAR LABORATORIES
 TO IMPROVE PROFITABILITY
 SPRINGFIELD, Va., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Versar, Inc. (AMEX: VSR) announced today its decision to restructure its subsidiary Versar Laboratories, Inc., within Versar in order to improve environmental compliance services and profitability.
 Versar Laboratories, Inc., will maintain a broad range of capabilities and will operate as an in-house facility, supporting Versar projects and concentrating on industrial customers. As part of the reorganization, the Laboratory's information management system will be integrated with Versar's Environmental Compliance Management System (ECMS). This integration will allow Versar environmental professionals to efficiently review, analyze and report analytical results for customers.
 In addition, ECMS customers will be able to automatically load analytical results from the Versar laboratory directly into their copy of the ECMS. This strategic alliance will help Versar to better serve its industrial customers by creating a unique capability. The Laboratory can provide high quality analytical data to support the compliance efforts of the industrial customer, and this data is made more useful when integrated with the ECMS software which stores monitoring data from environmental compliance and remediation programs and has the capability to generate regulatory reports such as the Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR), Hazardous Waste Manifests, state reports, and the electronic version of the Form R. In addition, the ECMS can help identify potential compliance problems, track environmental permits, and provide an automated calendar of activities.
 Ben Rawls, president and CEO of Versar, Inc., said: "The promulgation and enforcement of environmental legislation has placed ever increasing demands on the regulated community regarding compliance record keeping and reporting. As part of Versar's program to develop partnerships with clients to better manage the cycle of environmental compliance, we have developed the ECMS, Environmental Compliance Management System, a comprehensive, integrated information management system. By joining the analytical capabilities of Versar Labs with those of Versar's ECMS group, Versar is uniquely positioned to provide its customers with a service embracing both laboratory analyses and regulatory reporting. This presents a superior alternative to the divestiture route for our laboratory."
 Versar provides a wide range of scientific and technical services to solve environmental and health safety problems caused by pollutants, hazardous materials, and toxic substances.
