PRINCETON, N.J., July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PharmaNet Development Group, Inc. (the "Company" or "PharmaNet") announced today that, in connection with its cash tender offer and consent solicitation (the "Offer") for any and all of its outstanding 10-7/8% Senior Secured Notes due 2017 (the "Notes"), it has elected to extend the expiration date of the Offer to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 12, 2011, unless extended or earlier terminated (the "Expiration Time") from 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 6, 2011.

Pursuant to the Offer, withdrawal rights expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 9, 2011. Notes tendered and consents delivered pursuant to the Offer may no longer be withdrawn.

The Offer is subject to a number of conditions that are set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated May 26, 2011 (the "Offer to Purchase"), including, without limitation, the consummation of the Transaction (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), as more fully described in the Offer to Purchase.

As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 6, 2011, PharmaNet received tenders of Notes subject to the Offer totaling approximately $170,760,000, or 100%, of the outstanding principal amount of the Notes.
