Oscar Nominated Actor Eric Roberts to Be New Spokesman for Genmed's Generic Drug Global Market Expansion

Actor Endorses Drug Company's Goal to Distribute Low Cost Generics Worldwide

HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - Academy Award nominated actor Eric Roberts turns to drugs in a positive way by becoming the spokesperson for pharmaceutical licensing company, Genmed Holding Corp. (OTCBB: GENM). Endorsing the good work of the Dutch/US based company, Roberts will act as spokesman for the company and its efforts to advance the cause of bringing high quality generic drugs to corners of the world that have, until now, gone without the most basic of medications.

Roberts brings very real, personal experiences to Genmed that helped him through his own health crises. The actor's highly publicized history of drug dependency, humbly revealed to the world recently on the VH1 reality show "Celebrity Rehab," does not make him the most likely candidate to speak on behalf of a leading edge drug company like Genmed, but the company felt strongly that Roberts, who struggles with an acute anxiety disorder, is someone who can express firsthand the positive impact that vitally needed medications can have on one's health, family and quality of life.

"I've had my own health scares in life including the car accident that left me in a comma for three days," said Roberts. "Under those circumstances, you become acutely aware of the need for even the most basic of safe, well-tested, properly prescribed medications to help you to recover and to be comfortable while doing it. I embrace the mission of an innovative company like Genmed that is working to bring current and soon-to-be-released generic medications to virtually billions of people around the world who have never benefitted from products that are so basic to our own well being in developed countries."

Genmed currently works to bring 69 FDA quality A approved low cost generics to non EU countries. Governmental pressures and new insurance policies in many countries are rapidly increasing the necessity for these low cost generics that share the same active ingredients, dose to treat the same disease, in an equally safe and effective delivery medium as their reference medicines.

Genmed is also in the process of registering, distributing and marketing 17 of these generic products in 12 EU countries in the next three years starting with the products with the highest sale value. Genmed calculates that the current sales volume for their target markets, both in the EU and developing countries, is approximately 9.4 billion Euros.
