Labor SMART Issues Open Letter to The Staffing Group CEO

Company Seeks to Form Strategic Alliance

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/01/15 -- Labor SMART, Inc. (OTCQB: LTNC) (the "Company"), a leader in providing on-demand blue collar staffing primarily in the southeastern United States, today delivered via email the following open letter to the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Staffing Group, Ltd. (TSGL).

RE: 13D Filing by Labor Smart, Inc.

Mr. McLoone,

As you are now aware, our purchase of 2,000,000 shares of The Staffing Group Ltd. common stock on November 30, 2015 was followed by a Schedule 13D filing with the SEC, due to our previously unannounced acquisition of 1,758, 618 shares of common stock in the open market and the nature of our intentions. The purpose of this letter to you today is to clearly state what those intentions are and seek common ground for a mutually beneficial discussion.

Having launched Labor SMART, Inc. as a publicly traded startup, I am sensitive to the challenges of building a sustainable business from scratch with the added fun of engaging the public markets and all that entails. I am quite familiar with the history of your company and we've had some discussions over the last two years regarding potential opportunities, business combinations, etc. I'm also aware of the burdens you were handed almost immediately upon becoming CEO of a public company. Given those challenges, I commend you for the successes you've been able to claim along the way. 

At this time, we have three separate, but related proposals that we would like to discuss with you in a formal setting.

Leveraging Synergies

In your Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, you discuss improved gross margins after shedding some high volume business. This is a tough and gutsy decision to make for the long term health of the company, and again, I commend you for taking this action. Still, with gross profit margins under 19%, a lot of profitability is left on the table. As you may know, Labor SMART attained a large deductible workers compensation policy in 2014 that drastically reduced our cost of sales. A business combination with Labor SMART could unlock value and profits hidden behind the high cost of workers compensation you are incurring. I propose that we work together to prepare a detailed analysis of the potential gains that could be had with Labor SMART's strong workers compensation program as the backbone of a reduction in cost of sales. This analysis should start with an examination of your loss runs for the last three years. There may also be a number of synergies that could be obtained leveraging Labor SMART's corporate support structure and your company's footprint. Additionally, there are undoubtedly vertical sales opportunities given the combined size of our respective customer bases. 

Leveraging Experience

Having worked with you at WTS before it was sold to MDT (and subsequently TrueBlue), I know that you are a solid operator with a conservative approach to risk. It is my belief that our combined teams and their experience would offer much to our collective customers, shareholders, and employees. The first component of this proposal is that we work together to create a joint venture, or similar structure, to license the Labor SMART brand, processes, and methods in addition to a management service agreement whereby Labor SMART will provide the necessary infrastructure to facilitate an aggressive growth plan and The Staffing Group provides the day to day management. 

Any growth plan will require capital. I've encountered a number of challenges to raising capital as a publicly traded company. Raising startup capital itself is expensive and as our share structure indicates, extremely dilutive without a substantial amount of financial engineering from the beginning. I've raised a small amount of money for Labor SMART and we successfully grew our business to over $20 million in less than three years. I'm grateful that we were able to get funding to build the company, but I would do it differently knowing what I know now. I've expended the better part of 2015 playing defensive and trying to protect LaborSMART's shareholders from massive dilution. Fortunately, we have been able to renegotiate the mechanics of our convertible debt and believe we can repair the share structure now that we have better control of conversion rights, but the time lost can never be recovered. And that leads me to the second part of this specific proposal.

Should we reach mutually beneficial terms to have Labor SMART license its systems to The Staffing Group, I propose that we take a "fund from the ground up" approach. Crowd funding legislation is due to go in to affect next year. I believe there is an opportunity to crowd fund the startup capital for each new individual branch that's opened. Labor SMART will agree to be the lead investor with a minority ownership percentage of each branch opened under the licensing agreement, but with an option to acquire the branch at its discretion in the future for a predetermined multiple of earnings. This structure would insulate your shareholders from massive dilution and still allow for continued growth of the Labor SMART brand. For The Staffing Group, this structure offers a runway to ramp up sales and branch network in a meaningful way and an equity event as licensed branches are acquired by Labor SMART. 

Expand the Board

Lastly, we propose that The Staffing Group increase its Board of Directors from two directors to a total of five directors, two of whom will be appointed by Labor SMART, Inc. and a third by mutual agreement of Labor SMART and The Staffing Group. I do not expect that this request would be obliged without some consideration. We are open to exploring a number of different options to get this request effectuated in a swift manner. I believe you would agree that one of the most important tasks you currently face is getting your Form 10-Q filed for the period ended September 30, 2015. We do not wish to upend that process with added procedural burdens. To be clear, Labor SMART will take steps to protect its investment if necessary, but we do not have the intent of becoming a hostile suitor. Our industry is built on relationships and Labor SMART believes in creating partnerships and opportunity, not enemies. 

In summary, both companies can benefit greatly by engaging in a mutual partnership, even if the structure is somewhat different from the ones we have proposed. I believe it is in the best interest of The Staffing Group's shareholders, with Labor SMART, Inc. as one of the largest holders, to explore any and every opportunity that may be present to build value and sustainable profitability for the benefit of all. As two sizeable regional players in our industry, we must act boldly to create opportunities for the future. 

I look forward to scheduling a meeting with at your earliest convenience,


C. Ryan Schadel
President & CEO - Labor SMART, Inc.
