The event attracted 50 different energy companies for a total showing of nearly 200 HR executives and consultants. The EPIC Energy Forum provides HR professionals in the energy industry the opportunity to learn the results of EPIC's annual Energy Acumen Employee Benefit Plan Survey and network with their peers facing similar market challenges. The Energy Acumen survey is the leading source of benefits benchmarking information for the oil and gas industry and provides sector-specific reports, as well as a unique report on international assignee benefits to companies that participate in EPIC's Global Employee Benefit Plan Survey. In addition to a detailed overview of EPIC's employee benefit plan survey data, Houston attendees also heard from a panel of HR executives representing Archrock, Diamond Offshore and Pioneer Energy Services, who candidly discussed key HR issues impacting energy companies. Employers use the survey's benchmarking data to gauge where their company stands among peer companies in the industry, leveraging the survey's reported trends to support their strategies with executive leadership. "The first words out of my CEO's mouth when we talk benefits strategy is 'What is the market doing?'" said Jane Johnapelus Munoz, director of Global Employee Services at Diamond Offshore. "The second question out of my CEO's mouth is 'Are we going to hit the Cadillac Tax, and when?'" The panel also encouraged putting heightened focus on employee retention, since no one can afford to lose key talent. The key is communicating each employee's total rewards and not failing to promote benefit offerings that help your company stand out, panelists noted. By using the survey's benchmarking data to realign HR programs and benefit strategies so that they offer better value to employees at a lower cost, companies can make more meaningful decisions employees will appreciate. "2017 may not be the year of growth, but for us, it's the year of the employee," said Sharon Paul, VPHR at Archrock. "Give your savings back to your employees. This year, we put our savings back into our employees' pocket by increasing HSA contributions and lowering premiums." EPIC's Carl Pilger, director of Employee Benefits Compliance Services also delivered an ACA compliance update to a crowd of HR executives who agreed they'd rather keep compliance issues in their broker or consultant's hand so they can divert attention back to their employees. Companies who weren't able to make the kickoff presentation in Houston are encouraged to join EPIC in Dallas – Fort Worth, Texas on Tuesday, June 6 at 3:00 p.m. at the Hilton – Arlington or in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on Thursday, June 8 at 3:00 p.m. at the Tasting Room.

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - June 15, 2017) - EPIC Corporation ( : EPOR) ("EPIC" or "Company") and Ronald S. Tucker announced "EPIC has developed a strategic relationship with a Family Office that will provide limited financing ('Financing') to disruptive qualified private companies ('QPCs'), and is instituting new policies." EPIC's strategic relationship solves EPIC's lack of capital by making it possible to arrange for initial funding for a QPC's business activities. EPIC is an outside-the-box private financial services company that provides affiliated companies and independent QPCs with services included in the EPIC Process. The EPIC Process designs, develops, implements, and manages a complete short-term and long-term financial program for the QPC to enable it to raise capital. The Financing provides the initial capital for a QPC to create a capital foundation to raise more capital in the future. The Financing is primarily to be used to brand the QPC and its products or its services. The ability to arrange initial financing for QPCs will increase the value of an investment in EPIC because: 1) EPIC will not need to raise capital; and 2) EPIC will be able to contract with more qualified independent companies. EPIC is a private publicly traded company and has been using the OTC Markets services for more than three years and has been distributing quarterly stock dividends in its own stock to its Series A 5% Convertible Preferred Stock for more than three years. EPIC has decided to discontinue the services of OTC Markets due to FINRA's rules regarding the depositing of stock certificates, the reduced number or broker/dealers that will receive and deposit stock certificates, and the cost of depositing stock certificates. The Company has only a few shareholders with a limited number of shares that could be deposited and the cost of trying to deposit the certificates makes it impractical. EPIC recognizes that this will cause OTC Markets to show a skull and cross-bones indicating there is no current information. However, the Company will continue to make current information and financial statements available to download from its website or from emails sent to shareholders and accredited investors. EPIC has also decided to suspend its quarterly stock dividend in favor of making an annual stock dividend to be started in March of next year. EPIC, however, does have plans to periodically declare special stock dividends to its Preferred Shareholders in registered common stock of Tensleep Financial Corporation, RX Healthcare Systems, Ltd., and EPIC Medicor Corporation obtained from qualified Regulation A Offering Statements. EPIC and Autek Propulsion Technologies Corporation have terminated their agreement and Autek has returned EPIC's 1,000,000 shares of restricted common stock to authorized but unissued common stock. EPIC has also returned Autek's common stock and cancelled the Consulting Agreement. Tensleep Financial Corporations has canceled its Regulation D, 506(c) offering, as a result of EPIC entering into the Strategic Relationship with the Family Office. EPIC, an Outside-The-Box Company, a Special Purpose Vehicle ("SPV"), provides turn-key solutions through the EPIC Process. (Download the complete description of the EPIC Process). The EPIC Process ("Process") is a cost efficient and effective process that gives a QPC the ability to raise capital by creating an exit strategy and at a future time become a development stage public company ("DSPC"). EPIC's turn-key solutions provide a QPC with the ability continually to raise capital.


The ANSI/ASSE Z390 "Hydrogen Sulfide Training" Committee was formed in 1994, and the ANSI/ASSE Z390.1 Standard has consistently been one of ANSI's most valued publications. A new edition of the document will be released in the next few months. The guidelines in ANSI/ASSE Z390.1 establish content and instructional practices for training personnel with potential exposure to hydrogen sulfide (H2S).  The Standard includes detailed training recommendations concerning H2S properties and characteristics, respiratory protection, gas detection, emergency response, and more. These guidelines are used extensively in the oil and gas industry, in petrochemical operations, and in a variety of other industries worldwide.
