It is with a collective heavy heart that US Dataworks, Inc. (OTC PinkSheets: UDWK), a leader in payment processing solutions, today announced the passing of its long-time Chairman and CEO, Charles E. Ramey, who died yesterday morning after suffering a severe heart attack from which he was unable to recover.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has appointed John Penrod as its interim Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Penrod will continue in his role as the Company's VP of Operations in addition to his new CEO duties.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Chuck's family during this difficult time."
