PRESS RELEASE

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oildex, a service of Transzap, Inc. (“Oildex”), today announced that it has acquired the Procure-to-Pay (P2P) business of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADP), combining two leading technology providers in the fast-growing financial supply chain automation sector.
