Heartland Bridge Capital Announces Acquisition

iSafe Imaging Becomes a Heartland Company

MAHWAH, NJ--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - Heartland Bridge Capital (OTCBB: HLBC) announced today that it has acquired a group of companies comprising iSafe Imaging. iSafe Imaging provides digital file conversion services that convert legacy information of various formats into valuable, usable information. Services include document imaging, tape copying and transcription, data replication and disaster recovery. Additional services provided by iSafe include physical storage and management of hard copy records and paper materials, document retention planning, and document disposal. These services enable iSafe to create unique and comprehensive data and information management solutions that deliver maximum value to its business and user communities.

According to the unaudited financial statements of iSafe, the companies had combined revenue of nearly $1.3 million in 2010, an increase of more than one-third over the 2009 revenue of approximately $0.9 million. Major iSafe customers include companies in the oil and gas, telecommunications, engineering, and medical sectors.

"The acquisition of the iSafe group is a terrific step for Heartland," said Heartland's CEO, James F. Groelinger. "First and foremost, it is an operating business with meaningful revenue and stunning growth potential. Strategically, it represents a bridging of our three areas of interest -- energy, because a major customer segment are companies in the energy business; waste, because the conversion of legacy documents into electronic form is an important step towards minimizing the burden and cost of paper distribution and disposal; and medical, because a fledgling part of the group is eMEDiSAFE, an electronic document management system specializing in the medical arena. This acquisition also illustrates that we intend to be creative and innovative in our strategic areas, not confined by traditional interpretations of what makes sense, and always with the overarching objective of creating value for our shareholders."

Mr. Jay Silverman, a founding partner and majority owner of iSafe prior to its sale to Heartland, said: "I'm excited about this sale to a company that shares my vision of what iSafe and eMEDiSAFE can become, and that has the energy and resources to enable that vision to be realized. I look forward to a strong and successful relationship with Heartland."

Mr. Joseph Tischner, who will serve as iSafe's CEO and is the other founding partner, commented: "Under the Heartland umbrella, iSafe has a great opportunity to seize the market potential available in the energy and healthcare sectors, and to penetrate new areas. The support by Heartland of iSafe's existing management team is strong evidence of our ability to work together and provides an important foundation upon which to build the iSafe group."

The iSafe companies acquired include iSafe Imaging, LP, iSafe Imaging Canada Ltd., and eMEDiSAFE, LP. See www.i-safesolutions.com for more information.
