SOHM India Forecasts Strong Revenue Growth in Southeast Asia as Its Generic Pharmaceutical Product Line Begins Large Scale Distribution in the Region

Southeast Asia Is the Fourth-Largest Pharmaceutical Market in the World, Behind the United States, Japan, and Europe; Southeast Asia Is Also the World's Fastest-Growing Pharmaceutical Market

BUENA PARK, CA--(Marketwire - February 16, 2011) - SOHM, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SHMN), a generic pharmaceutical manufacturer that produces and markets generic drugs covering all major treatment categories, announced today that it expects strong revenue growth in Southeast Asia as the Company begins large scale distribution of its pharmaceutical product line in the region. SOHM India broadened its international sales channels in Q3 2010 by signing an exclusive distribution agreement for the marketing and distribution of SOHM's private label generic pharmaceutical products in Sri Lanka. The Company is positioned to capitalize and increase market share in the world's fastest-growing pharmaceutical market: Southeast Asia.

The Company's direct manufacturing of generic pharmaceuticals allows pricing advantages and distribution of quality drugs to consumers remaining underserved or with limited access to medicine in Southeast Asia. Health issues not being addressed in this region, such as contagious diseases, and lifestyle disorders such as cardiovascular, diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders and cancer, offer an exceptional opportunity to expand SOHM's market share and serve the populations of these countries.

Southeast Asia is the fourth-largest pharmaceutical market in the world, behind the United States, Japan, and Europe. Southeast Asia is also the world's fastest-growing pharmaceutical market. Factors driving this market expansion include economic growth, a broadening middle class, growing and aging population, increasing economic liberalization, and an expanded government and private-sector role in improving healthcare.
