HCC and FDA Announce interest sale to Lagniappe Health

Fort Worth, TX (August 25, 2011) - After leading HCC and FDS through decades of developing and delivering technology to the pharmacy and healthcare marketplace, Rex Akers has sold his interest in HCC and FDS to Lagniappe Health.


Going forward, two longtime HCC and FDS executives will assume responsibility for day to day operations. Mike McManus, formerly EVP, Business Development, will assume the role of President and Tracy Ward, formerly EVP, will serve as COO of both HCC and FDS. FDS Specialty Services, a custom software company will be merged into FDS.


"Our founder and owner desired an exit strategy that not only provided him a path to retirement but a future for his employees and customers," said Mike McManus, president of HCC and FDS. "Rather than a strategic buyer, we were able to find a financial partner that enables us to build upon the very fine products and services offered to all the customers of HCC, FDS, and FDS Specialty Services as well as to enable us to expand into additional lines of business," continued McManus. "Our plan is to continue to provide our customers with exceptional products and services as well as to grow our existing companies by adding more services for the health care market."
