PHM Announces Execution of Another Letter of Intent (LOI) to Acquire a Business in Oklahoma With $3 Million in Annualized Revenue

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 5, 2015) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF THE SECURITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN.

Patient Home Monitoring Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PHM) ("PHM") announced it has executed a non-binding Letter of Intent (LOI) to acquire a company in Oklahoma reporting unaudited 12 month annual revenues of approximately $3,000,000 and Adjusted EBITDA margins in excess of 15%. PHM plans to close this acquisition concurrently with the LOI signed October 1, 2014 in Texas. These acquisitions will mark PHM's continued expansion into new markets, in this case the lower Midwest region of the country.

The acquisition of these growing and profitable companies is expected to be immediately accretive to the income statement and will increase PHM's earnings-per-share (EPS). PHM's annual run rate will increase from $50,000,000 today to over $56,000,000 when these two LOIs are closed, along with the LOI in Georgia, announced on January 7. This does not include any future organic growth from these companies.

The Oklahoma business is focused on offering home-based pulmonology services for patients with sleep apnea, oxygen needs and other diseases of the lungs. The Texas business is focused on providing wound care to patients with chronic conditions, a new high margin service line, as well as mobility solutions for the aging population. These two companies naturally compliment each other and immediately after the acquisitions, PHM expects strong organic Adjusted EBITDA growth from cross selling.

According to the LOI with the Oklahoma company, PHM expects to close the acquisition with approximately $900,000 in cash and approximately 1,100,000 PHM common shares depending on final due diligence of trailing 12 month Adjusted EBITDA. Closing the acquisitions will be subject to final due diligence and a binding purchase agreement.

"We have three LOIs now outstanding representing about $6 million in annualized revenue," said Michael Dalsin, Chairman of PHM. "We intend to close all three of these companies shortly. All of these deals are great examples of the types of smaller deals, between $2M and $4M in revenue, that PHM is focused on to systematically consolidate certain parts of the home market. There is a mutually beneficial outcome for both PHM shareholders and the owners and managers of the target companies: by offering more services to their existing clients, and passing off low value administration to PHM, the companies can focus on being both bigger and better in their respective regions."

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.
