UMED Holdings, Inc. Acquires 50% Interest in Rig Support Services, Inc.

FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) - UMED Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UMED), a Texas Corporation, today announced that it has acquired a 50% interest in Rig Support Services, Inc. (RSSI), a privately held Texas Corporation in a stock for stock transaction. 

RSSI has developed a unique and valuable technology and proprietary asset management tool for the oil and gas industry. This tool will not only provide independent rig owners with the ability to view and report on rig operations, it will also allow for a more streamlined and accurate service part process, ensuring cost savings per part and increased efficiency by significantly decreasing rig down-time due to mechanical break-downs. Presently, no similar solution exists within the oil and gas Industry.

Ryan Wester, President of RSI, said, "As a young company, partnering with UMED has given us instant credibility and support allowing us to concentrate on rapidly expanding and capturing a market that until now has been undeveloped."

Kevin Bentley, CEO of UMED, said, "With the purchase of RSSI, we are continuing to execute the growth strategy of our holding company through acquisitions of profitable, well managed, cash-generating companies that have predictable revenues and increasing cash flow."
