Punctual Abstract Acquires Mississippi Research Firm

November 2, 2021

Louisiana-based Punctual Abstract has acquired Slade Title Research in Mississippi. The merger solidifies Punctual Abstract’s footprint in Mississippi, and creates the opportunity to offer extended products and services such as document recording and title production to customers in the state.

The merger is effective immediately.

Bobbie Jo Kemp, who founded Slade Title Research in 2017 in Flowood, Miss., will serve as Mississippi state manager for Punctual Abstract. While Slade searched 10 counties in Mississippi, the merger, which utilizes Punctual Abstract’s advanced technology and increased staffing, now opens the capacity to search all 82 counties in the state.

“Bobbie Jo’s local dirt knowledge, excellent reputation and deep network of professional contacts in the state led to the decision to acquire her company,” said Punctual Abstract CEO Ted Woloszyk. “Together, we can seamlessly offer her existing customers, as well as new customers seeking Mississippi title evidence, an advanced level of service powered by the technology and resources of Punctual Abstract.”
