Mr. Ronnie Adams commented, "We are expecting this contract to generate growth in revenues and earnings. As a result of gaining this contract, we plan to expand our business operations in the areas of manufacturing, financial management, research and development, and logistics."
Over the past few months Medical Alarm Concepts has been experiencing strong growth in revenues due to an expanding retail presence, strong Internet sales and new international opportunities. Having now reached operational cash flow profitability, the Company is expecting to report positive cash flow for the full quarter ending March 31, 2013 and throughout calendar 2013.
"We are very pleased that our cash flow will be based on very high quality recurring revenues. Our retail partnerships remain strong. This week we began the first of two promotions that are scheduled for the late winter and early spring period. Thus far, sales have been extremely robust, which is strongly adding to our recurring monthly revenue base. We are expecting calendar 2013 to be a year of very strong growth and cash flow," said Mr. Ronnie Adams.
The MediPendant® is a second-generation personal medical alarm and the only product in its category that allows for monitored, two-way communications directly through the pendant along with patented voice prompts. Older generations of technology require the user to be in close proximity to the base station in order to speak and listen to the operator. With the MediPendant®, the customer can be anywhere within approximately 600 feet of their home and in the event of an emergency, speak and listen to the EMT trained operator directly through the pendant.
Additional information on the MediPendant® can be viewed at www.MediPendant.com.
Medical Alarm Concepts Holdings, Inc. (MAC) develops and manufactures innovative products and practical solutions within the framework of a vast growing marketplace. MediPendant's® patented two-way voice technology enables the user to speak and listen directly through the pendant no matter where the user may be in and around their home. MediPendant® service also includes advanced features such as three-way calling that enables the operator to link loved ones directly into the emergency call in real time. Text message alerts are also standard, and are used to inform loved ones that the user has contacted an operator or has requested assistance. A standard PERS system does not enable the user to speak and listen through the pendant, thus limiting them to a small area in their home. There is always the risk that the user will not be heard by the call center operator if they are not within a short range of the base station.
