PRESS RELEASE

Empire Investment Holdings (“Empire”), a private investment firm focused on the acquisition and strategic management of non-core business units from public and private corporations, announced today that it has moved into its new global headquarters.

The firm has spent the past eight months designing and managing a complete 11,000 square foot build-out, to accommodate Empire’s growing business, while maintaining a unique environment conducive to its intense, energetic and collaborative culture. After an extensive search, Empire decided to remain within the Waterford properties and moved into their newest, Class A, state-of-the-art facility.

“The entire team is thrilled with the new space and the attention that was placed on designing a layout that perfectly fits our culture and approach to doing business,” said David F. Alfonso, Empire’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Our global headquarters provides a very open and collegial environment with glass offices and conference rooms, large meeting rooms, team lounges and the latest in video and communication technology. Our ability to interact seamlessly within any time zone was essential to enhance productivity and responsiveness for our portfolio companies and external partners.”

“On the firm’s behalf, we evaluated a multitude of options in several different submarkets in South Florida, including downtown Fort Lauderdale, Brickell Avenue and Coral Gables, just to name a few. In the final analysis, relocating to prime space in the brand-new Class A 1000 Waterford project and joining a roster of Fortune 500 companies made perfect sense for Empire,” said Robert G. Orban, senior vice president, co-branch manager at Studley.

Empire engaged Studley as its exclusive real estate broker and Amicon Construction for the build-out of the new space, located at 1000 North West 57th Court, 9th Floor, Miami, Florida 33126. Empire’s telephone number remains 305.403.1111.
