http://www.sec.gov/litigation/admin/2014/34-73406.pdf

Excerpts:
The Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) deems it necessary and appropriate for the protection of investors that public administrative proceedings be, and hereby are, instituted pursuant to Section 12(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) against Respondents 21st Century Telesis II, Inc., Agemark Corp., Alnilam Corp., American Centrality Group, Inc., China Feicui Guodian Group Ltd., and Icon Public Ltd. Co


6. Icon Public Ltd. Co. (CIK No. 1060373) is an Irish company located in Dublin, Ireland with a class of securities registered with the Commission pursuant to Exchange Act Section 12(g). Icon Public is delinquent in its periodic filings with the Commission, having not filed any periodic reports since it filed a Form 20-F for the period ended May 31, 2002, which reported a net loss of $87,939 for the prior three months. As of October 16, 2014, the company’s stock (symbol “ICLR”) was quoted on Nasdaq, had four market makers, and was eligible for the “piggyback” exception of Exchange Act Rule 15c2-11(f)(3).

B. DELINQUENT PERIODIC FILINGS

7. As discussed in more detail above, all of the Respondents are delinquent in their periodic filings with the Commission, have repeatedly failed to meet their obligations to file timely periodic reports, and failed to heed delinquency letters sent to them by the Division of Corporation Finance requesting compliance with their periodic filing obligations or, through their failure to maintain a valid address on file with the Commission as required by Commission rules, did not receive such letters.

8. Exchange Act Section 13(a) and the rules promulgated thereunder require issuers of securities registered pursuant to Exchange Act Section 12 to file with the Commission current and accurate information in periodic reports, even if the registration is voluntary under Section 12(g). Specifically, Rule 13a-1 requires issuers to file annual reports, and Rule 13a-13 requires domestic issuers to file quarterly reports.

9. As a result of the foregoing, Respondents failed to comply with Exchange Act Section 13(a) and Rules 13a-1 and/or 13a-13 thereunder.

In view of the allegations made by the Division of Enforcement, the Commission deems it necessary and appropriate for the protection of investors that public administrative proceedings be instituted to determine:

A. Whether the allegations contained in Section II hereof are true and, in connection therewith, to afford the Respondents an opportunity to establish any defenses to such allegations; and,

B. Whether it is necessary and appropriate for the protection of investors to suspend for a period not exceeding twelve months, or revoke the registration of each class of securities registered pursuant to Section 12 of the Exchange Act of the Respondents identified in Section II hereof, and any successor under Exchange Act Rules 12b-2 or 12g-3, and any new corporate names of any Respondents

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that a public hearing for the purpose of taking
evidence on the questions set forth in Section III hereof shall be convened at a time and place to be fixed, and before an Administrative Law Judge to be designated by further order as provided by Rule 110 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice [17 C.F.R. § 201.110].

IT IS HEREBY FURTHER ORDERED that Respondents shall file an Answer to
the allegations contained in this Order within ten (10) days after service of this Order, as provided by Rule 220(b) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice [17 C.F.R. § 201.220(b)].

If Respondents fail to file the directed Answers, or fail to appear at a hearing after being duly notified, the Respondents, and any successor under Exchange Act Rules 12b-2 or 12g-3, and any new corporate names of any Respondents, may be deemed in default and the proceedings may be determined against them upon consideration of this Order, the allegations of which may be deemed to be true as provided by Rules 155(a), 220(f), 221(f), and 310 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice [17 C.F.R. §§ 201.155(a), 201.220(f), 201.221(f), and 201.310].

This Order shall be served forthwith upon Respondents personally or by certified, registered, or Express Mail, or by other means permitted by the Commission Rules of Practice.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Administrative Law Judge shall issue an
initial decision no later than 120 days from the date of service of this Order, pursuant to Rule 360(a)(2) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice [17 C.F.R. §201.360(a)(2)].

In the absence of an appropriate waiver, no officer or employee of the
Commission engaged in the performance of investigative or prosecuting functions in this or any factually related proceeding will be permitted to participate or advise in the decision of this matter, except as witness or counsel in proceedings held pursuant to notice. Since this proceeding is not “rule making” within the meaning of Section 551 of the Administrative Procedure Act, it is not deemed subject to the provisions of Section 553 delaying the effective date of any final Commission action.

By the Commission.

ICON Plc (ICLR) Market Cap: $1.96 billion
ICLR is a Contract Research Organization. These organizations are essential to the pharmaceutical industry as they handle the time consuming and messy process of managing the clinical trials necessary for the approval of new medicines. The largest player in the industry is privately held Quintiles, but among the public companies, ICLR appears best positioned for a long, steady climb. ICLR has demonstrated robust growth, with revenue rising from $297 million in 2003 to $1,115 million in 2012, an increase of 275%. ICLR has a global presence and offers laboratory services as well, meaning that they can do just about everything for their clients except create new molecules. We see ICLR as a buy and hold opportunity.

ICON To Acquire Clinical Trial Services Division of Cross Country Healthcare Inc

ICON To Acquire Clinical Trial Services Division of Cross Country Healthcare Inc.

Acquisition Expands ICON’s Global Resourcing, FSP and Safety Capabilities

Dublin, Ireland, 4th February, 2013 – ICON plc, (NASDAQ: ICLR; ISIN: IE0005711209), a global provider of outsourced development services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries, today announced that it has agreed, subject to certain closing conditions, to acquire the Clinical Trial Services Division of Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ:CCRN), for a cash consideration of $52 million, plus an earn-out of up to $3.75 million related to certain performance-based milestones. The transaction is expected to close within the next 30 days.

Cross Country Healthcare’s Clinical Trial Services Division includes leading US resourcing providers, ClinForce and Assent Consulting, whose services include contract staffing, permanent placement and functional service provision. The division also includes AKOS, a leading US and EU provider of pharmacovigilance and drug safety services. ClinForce and Assent will be combined with ICON’s FSP division, DOCS, creating a leader in global resourcing and FSP, while AKOS will enhance the services offered by ICON’s medical and safety services team.

Commenting on the acquisition, Ciaran Murray, CEO at ICON plc, said: “The demand for flexible resourcing solutions continues to grow as biopharma companies employ a range of outsourcing models to meet their development goals more efficiently. The ClinForce and Assent businesses will significantly expand our resourcing and FSP capabilities in the US and, when combined with DOCS strong European footprint and growing emerging markets presence, gives us the ability to deliver truly global resourcing solutions. Additionally, AKOS enhances our expertise in the areas of pharmacovigilance and drug safety consulting, which are increasingly important capabilities required by our clients.”

Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: CCRN) announced today it has completed the previously announced sale of its clinical trial services business to ICON plc (NASDAQ: ICLR) for $52 million, plus an earn-out of up to $3.75 million related to certain performance-based milestones. Cross Country Healthcare used a portion of the net proceeds from this transaction to repay all $29.3 million of its outstanding bank debt.

As a result of this sale, Cross Country Healthcare’s clinical trial services business segment will become discontinued operations and will be reported as such on its financial statements for all applicable periods presented in the Company’s upcoming financial reporting for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

“Our divestiture of this business was based on an extensive review of our operations and the changing landscape in the pharmaceutical R&D outsourcing industry. Having successfully completed this transaction, we will narrow our focus and concentrate our resources on our core nurse and allied staffing and our physician staffing businesses, which pro forma would represent about 90% of our consolidated revenue,” said Joseph A. Boshart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. “I also want to wish our outstanding clinical trial service team much success in the future,” added Mr. Boshart.
