PHM is rolling-up a large and fragmented market of small, profitable businesses providing healthcare products and services to chronically ill patients. The companies are acquired for their technical and market expertise in certain product and service lines, as well as their patient databases. Once acquired, PHM works to offer these newly acquired services to its entire patient base, thereby increasing revenue per patient and achieving organic post acquisition revenue growth and profits.

"This was truly a transformational quarter for PHM," said Casey Hoyt, CEO of PHM. "PHM's vision and goals have never changed, we're only adding to our arsenal. Not only will we continue to make accretive acquisitions that will benefit our shareholders, we will continue to cross-sell to increase revenues post acquisition. In addition to that, PHM will benefit from our organic growth strategy. We feel our organic growth platform will increase revenues in PHM's existing businesses. This approach resulted in Sleep Management's revenues growing 100% year-over-year over the last three years. It's a proven model that works and it should have an impact on PHM's bottom line going forward. We have made investments since closing in order to increase organic growth that will have a positive financial impact as soon as the upcoming quarter. This opportunity is the key reason why Mike and I decided to take take the helm of PHM and lead the company to the next level."

"There is tremendous potential in this quarter trillion dollar market," continued Casey Hoyt. "I believe our competitive advantage in this fast growing market will provide opportunities for significant revenue and profit growth over the coming quarters and that we have really just begun in terms of building PHM to the vision the management team and Board share."

"This is our ninth consecutive quarter of record revenues and profits," said Michael Dalsin, Non-executive Chairman of PHM. "And this quarter is certainly the most crucial quarter PHM has ever had. By raising $67 million and closing a $100 million deal, all in the same quarter, we have moved PHM into the next phase of its life cycle. As part of this transformation, we continue to work on finishing the process for up-listing onto a US exchange and are currently finalizing our process for a senior listing in Canada."

About PHM

The explosive growth in the number of elderly patients in the US healthcare market is creating pressure to provide more efficient delivery systems. Healthcare providers, such as hospitals, physicians and pharmacies, are seeking partners that can offer a range of products and services that improve outcomes, reduce hospital readmissions, and help control costs. PHM fills this need by delivering a growing number of specialized products and services to achieve these goals. PHM is a positive cash flow and profitable company that serves patients with heart disease and other chronic health conditions, this operation is a platform for acquisitions and organic growth. PHM is focused on a highly fragmented and developing market of small privately-held companies servicing chronically ill patients with multiple disease states caused mainly by age and obesity. Because of the new and highly fragmented nature of the market, PHM is actively working to identify and evaluate profitable, annuity-based companies to acquire their patient databases and technical expertise at favorable prices. PHM's post acquisition organic growth strategy is to increase annual revenue per patient by offering multiple services to the same patient, consolidating the patient's services and making life easier for the patient. The expected result is growing EPS with each acquisition and growing revenue and profits from the cross selling efforts.
