LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., -- Triple Canopy, Inc., a
leading private security firm providing protection services to U.S.
facilities in Iraq, said today that erroneous media reports
originating in Honduras this week have misstated the firm's recruiting
policies and pay scales.

Triple Canopy, Inc. is directly contacting Honduran government
officials and media outlets, as well as North American news
organizations that have distributed the false reports, to set the
record straight, the company said.

"Triple Canopy stands alone in the industry in the quality of its
hiring and training practices, and we are seriously concerned that
reports from Honduras this week have misstated our standards for
recruiting employees for the services we provide in Iraq," said Joe
Mayo, Director, Public Affairs. "News accounts that wildly inflate pay
scales are a disservice to our firm and to our potential employees."

Authorized information regarding recruiting and compensation may be
obtained solely from the Human Resources Department of Triple Canopy,
Inc., 600 Knightsbridge Parkway, Lincolnshire, Illinois 60069.
