True Nature Holding, Inc. Acquires Atlanta Compounder, Begins Build Out of Southeast Region

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2016) - True Nature Holding, Inc. (OTCQB: TNTY) ("the Company") today announced that it has entered into a letter of intent to acquire Integrity Compounding Pharmacy, who is established in the Georgia pharmacy marketplace, from their base in Dunwoody, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. Casey Gaetano, its Founder and CEO, will join the management team at True Nature.

"We are pleased to establish our first operations in Atlanta, where we maintain our corporate headquarters. Integrity was founded by Mr. Gaetano, who has a vision very much in concert with ours. We see his experience and vision as a very important aspect of this transaction," said Steve Keaveney, the Company's Chairman and CEO. "I am quite excited about the future of the industry, and see the True Nature corporate vision fully in synch with my own. There are significant market changes in the works, and with the available capital of a publicly held company, consolidation of the businesses is more easily accomplished," said Gaetano, about the prospects of joining the Company.

Mr. Gaetano, age 29, founded Integrity in 2015, and has established relationships within the compounding pharmacy area in the Southeast. He is a graduate of Emory University in Atlanta. He will become the Vice President of Corporate Development upon closing, reporting to Mr. Keaveney.

The transaction is subject to final due diligence, and approval of both companies Board of Directors. The transaction involves a combination of stock and debt, and is expected to close in the next 30 days.
