Thursday, August 31, 2006

LAKE FOREST, Calif. - Amin Khalifa, Apria's executive vice president and CFO, resigned Aug. 25, 2006, to take a job with a telecommunications company. "My move comes at a time when Apria is on the rebound with tighter operations, favorable cash flow and building sales momentum," Khalifa stated in a July 27 release on the company's second quarter earnings. "I am making this change for only one reason--a unique opportunity to join a growth company in the telecommunications industry." Until Apria finds a replacement, Alicia Price, the company's vice president and controller, will assume CFO duties. Khalifa, 52, has been named executive vice president and CFO of Leap Wireless International.
