KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. (OTCQB: MDHI.PK), today announces that it has received its first subsequent order as part of a large ongoing commitment the Company previously announced on November 21, 2011. This purchase order, which will be delivered in monthly installments throughout 2012, represents the company's single largest order to date.
"In November 2011, we announced a significant purchase order from one of our largest distribution partners," commented Ronald Adams, President of Medical Alarm Concepts. "We are very excited to announce that we have started to receive orders under this large contract, and that we are working with our manufacturing partner to significantly expand production of our patented MediPendant™ medical alarm device. We anticipate our profit from this contract will represent a substantial portion of our annual overhead. With our new television campaign launching this past weekend, and our other marketing programs in the works, we believe we are well-positioned to take market share in this robust and expanding space."
Mr. Adams continued, "Both end user customers and distributors are responding to our marketing message. With our patented, speak and listen through the pendant technology, we offer a superior medical alarm technology at a price that is highly competitive. We are expanding our distribution not only through the orders we are announcing today, but also via our partnerships with other vendors including Albertsons, Harrington Multimedia, and other big box and wholesale clubs. In addition, we now also have the financing arrangements in place to support our working capital needs in order to grow our business and expand shareholder value."
Medical Alarm Concepts recently announced a proposed merger with Carrollton, Texas-based FirstFitness Nutrition Inc., a leading provider of weight loss, wellness, and energy and fitness nutritional products. The combined operation is expected to produce over $12 million in revenues this year, and to yield both positive earnings and cash flow. Since the announcement of the proposed merger, revenues at FirstFitness have been accelerating due to increased interest in the weight loss category and enhancements to its marketing efforts. The companies have set February 28, 2012 as the proposed closing date for the merger.
In other news, the Company has been successful in negotiating the cancellation of an additional 10.5 million in money warrants, which is in addition to the cancellation of the 15.5 million in money warrants announced last week. The Company is expecting additional warrant cancellations and convertible debt cancellations over the next several weeks. These cancellations are part of an ongoing program to reduce shareholder dilution and to meaningfully improve the Company's balance sheet and future income statement performance.
About Medical Alarm Concepts
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.
