Sun Files Registration Statement for Future Offering

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2008) - Sun Healthcare Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: SUNH) announced that it has filed a universal shelf registration statement relating to the possible sale from time to time in one or more offerings of up to $200.0 million of debt securities, common stock, preferred stock and warrants or any combination thereof. Sun has no current plans to issue any of these securities at this time but may do so in the future. Once declared effective by the SEC, the shelf registration statement would provide Sun increased flexibility and more control over the timing of any such sale of securities to meet both market and strategic opportunities. At the time of any such offering, Sun would establish the terms, including the pricing of any such registered securities, and describe in its filed prospectus or prospectus supplement how the proceeds from the sale of any such securities would be used.

A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective.
