Investment Opportunity in China's Healthcare Market

FLEMINGTON, NJ--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - The Chinese Healthcare market is projected to continue growing at 20% per year over the next decade. Similar growth is projected for the Employee Assistance Program [EAP] market. These growth forecasts are being fueled by support from the central government to better meet the evolving health management needs of China's rapidly growing middle class population and to better support China's workforce via enhanced EAP services.

Valurise Health Solutions International [VHS], a pioneering provider in both health risk management [HRM] and EAP/mental health services, is well positioned to become a dominant player in these markets. Given the market growth and VHS's strong position in both markets the company represents an attractive investment opportunity for US and European venture capital firms as VHS plans for a second round of financing.

VHS was formed in 2007 to initially address market opportunities in HRM. After building the necessary infrastructure to support patient needs for better disease/health management VHS launched its first "channel" product [health risk management] in mid-2009. Today VHS provides HRM services to over 50% of large insurance companies operating in China [including large US-based companies like MetLife and Cigna].

In 2010, VHS launched its 2nd channel product, a suite of EAP/mental health services to large employers. This combination of HRM with EAP/mental health services is unique in China, and the world, in that it integrates physical health medicine with EAP/mental health support. This combination VHS service is called H-EAP. The success of the H-EAP program has been demonstrated by rapid acceptance of the new program by large employers in China with over 900,000 employees now benefiting from H-EAP services. In addition, the value of these pioneering programs to Chinese citizens recently generated three important national recognition awards to VHS and its CEO, Dr. Rico Tong, by leading private and government Chinese press:

  • The "2011 Top 10 cutting-edge Company which affects the Chinese Management Practices" by Manager at the China CEO Forum recently held in Beijing.

  • "China's Most Public Satisfaction EAP Service Brand" Award by the Economy.

  • "Creating a New EAP Service Era -- Annual Leader in China" Award to VHS's CEO Dr. Rico Tong by the Economy.

On October 3, 2011 VHS announced plans for further expansion of its services directly to consumers. To assist in funding this expansion VHS has also concurrently announced its intention to pursue a second round of financing.
