SOHM Starts Its Nutraceutical Manufacturing Facility in India

SOHM Takes Step to Build the Momentum

BUENA PARK, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 18, 2012) - SOHM, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SHMN), a generic pharmaceutical manufacturer that produces and markets generic drugs covering all major treatment categories, today announced its Nutraceutical plant has been operational and has commenced commercial production since last month.

Mr. Shailesh Shah, President and CEO said that he is very pleased to announce that last month SOHM's in-house neutraceutical plant commenced its commercial production of neutraceutical product line, including Diorac, a unique probiotic anti-diarrheal product. The in house manufacturing plant helps to extend SOHM'S core competence to include neutraceutical at a right time when United States Food & Drug Administration and the Indian Food & Drug Administration are simplifying regulations in regard to neutraceutical deliverables. We believe these changes and adjustments to the regulations will allow SOHM to more quickly and effectively reach millions of consumers more cost effectively.

Mr. Shah added that SOHM's new plant, which is located near the company's India headquarters in Ahmedabad, is in compliance with all Dietary Supplement Health and Education Guidelines. Furthermore the company has received an endorsement and necessary regulatory compliances with local authority as well as with the Indian Food & Drug Administration and Food Standards Authority of India.

As the medicine moves away from palliative and diagnostic paradigm into curative and proactive regimens, neutraceuticals increasingly are seen as a core component in healthy lifestyle management worldwide. To that end SOHM's organizational competencies will increasingly be deemed to meet growing and evolving market opportunities in neutraceutical segment, Mr. Shailesh Shah added.

Finally Mr. Shah said in his message that with the commencement of production at neutraceutical facility, SOHM has reached two milestones. First, SOHM's pipeline of new and innovative products is now guaranteed. Secondly, when combined with SOHM's dermatology and generic pharmaceutical operations, the company will be able to expand and enhance distribution channels that will add to the revenues and profitability in 2012.
