LYMAN, S.C., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern Home Medical Equipment, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SHOM), a Holding Company providing healthcare services, healthcare professionals and equipment to medical institutions, has targeted the Mid-Atlantic region for expansion and growth. After two consecutive profitable years, zero long-term debt, the company's management believes it is poised to pursue additional revenues and growth opportunities.
Waterford Holdings Group specializes in targeting and financing acquisitions, particularly in the Mid-Atlantic States. Brian August, CEO of Waterford Holdings remarked, "We see this as an excellent opportunity to merge privately held assets into a stable, conservative public entity like Southern Home."
