Southern Home Medical Achieves Seventh Consecutive Month of Profitability and Record Revenues in July

Net Income up 73% on Revenue Growth of 25% Year-Over-Year

LYMAN, SC--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - Southern Home Medical Equipment, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SHOM), a holding company providing healthcare services, staffing and durable medical equipment to medical institutions, announced today that it has achieved its seventh consecutive month of profitability and record revenues in July 2011. Corporate revenues were $116,204 in July 2011, 25% higher than revenues of $93,047 reported in July 2010. Net income was $36,423 in July 2011, 73% higher compared to net income of $21,061 in the same month one year ago.

"Having reported a strong first and second quarter of 2011, we are extremely pleased to continue our progress into the second half of 2011. The month of July 2011 continues our trend of profitability established at year-end December 31, 2010. Our network of companies are focused on streamlining operations and increasing sales without additional, large capital expenditures. We remain optimistic that our positive earnings trend will continue through the remainder of 2011," said President and CEO of Southern Home Medical, Jeff Sarvis.

"While we are exceeding our expectations month-after-month in terms of revenues and net income, our stock price has yet to parallel our outstanding performance. We anticipate this to change, as the 'gathering phase' of the audit is almost over. Scott and Company, our auditor, will soon be assembling the results for public disclosure. Once completed, we can continue to move towards 'fully reporting status' and achieve higher visibility in the financial community," added Sarvis.
