MMRGlobal Retains The MichaelBass Group for Healthcare IT Valuation and Banking Relationship Expertise

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 3, 2011) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR"), a leading provider of Personal Health Records and electronic document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals, today announced that it has retained The MichaelBass Group (MBG) to provide valuation expertise and help the Company identify investment bankers and analysts for a potential transaction combining revenue cycle management, health IT, document management and imaging services for healthcare professionals, patient care, and the exploitation of biotech assets into one consolidated entity.

The MichaelBass Group specializes in tracking and conducting research on over 200 emerging growth companies in the healthcare information technology sector. The firm conducts its research on behalf of the Institute for Health Technology Transformation ( and numerous clients in health information technology and services. MBG is also active in the programming of Health Tech Investment Forums such as the annual iHT2 Health Technology Summit being held this week in Beverly Hills. Sponsors and Partners include MMRGlobal, Intel, Microsoft, Dell and Availity. MMR's Chief Technology Officer Sunil Singhal is scheduled to appear today as a featured industry panelist and Executive Vice President Richard M. Lagani is in attendance to meet with healthcare professionals and investors, demonstrating the Company's MMRPro document management and imaging system (

MBG was originally retained by MMRGlobal in June 2010 to help identify revenue generating companies that are additive to MMR's products and services. Examples include companies that generate lab reports and provide transcription services or enhanced imaging products. These companies create content that could be automatically deposited into a MyMedicalRecords PHR or incorporated into MMRPro for healthcare professionals and then be shared with patients through the MMRPatientView portal.

This September at the iHT2 Health Technology Innovation and Investment Forum in New York, a senior health IT analyst was quoted as saying, "After following MMRGlobal for the last 3 years our research has concluded that OTC: MMRF is one of the most undervalued health care IT plays we've seen in recent years. The definitive agreement announced by the company on September 19th adds the credibility we were looking for to the earlier September 7th announcement of the non-binding term sheet with the same company. From sources in the industry, if MMRGlobal acquires over $150 million in revenue this stock currently trading at $.03 could realistically trade at a valuation of $3.50-$4.00 stock with a market cap in the $800mm to $1.2b range. This is based on comparable valuations in the health care IT sector such as Accretive Health and Merge Healthcare Inc. It is important to note that MMR is the only pure play personal health record company with connectivity to any health care professional, EMR, patented technologies, with an emerging global footprint and very credible strategic partners including AIG/Chartis, Kodak, Unis and others."
