Connectyx Announces Acquisition of U.S. Medical Monitoring Services LLC


9/17/2012 9:09:21 AM

STUART, FL--(Marketwire - September 17, 2012) - Connectyx Technologies Holdings Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CTYX), www.connectyx.com, a Healthcare BPO that provides unique products for the healthcare market including MedFlash®, the electronic Personal Health Manager (ePHM), Medical Transcription, Disease Management, Revenue Cycle Management, and Medical Consulting - Billing, announced the acquisition of U.S.A. Medical Monitoring Services LLC, www.usaalertinfo.com, a profitable private company engaged in the Personal Emergency Response Systems/Services (PERS) market.

Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, Connectyx Technologies has acquired all the assets and no liabilities of U.S.A. Medical Monitoring Services. Assets include customer accounts with monthly recurring revenue, inventory, website, marketing material and contracts. Connectyx issued twenty million one year restricted shares and five million warrants with an exercise price of $0.02 expiring October, 2017.

U.S.A. Medical Monitoring Services offers the Life Control along with a variety of other Personal Emergency Response Systems, (PERS) and products. With just the simple push of a button you'll be in direct voice-to-voice contact with one of our 24-hour emergency response professionals, a family member or a trusted friend -- or both.

According to Frost and Sullivan Research, the Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) market booked revenue of $963.9 million in 2010 (an increase of 15.2 percent over 2009) and is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 10.4 percent from 2010 to 2017 to reach $1.86 billion in 2017. (http://www.ageinplacetech.com/pressrelease/pers-market-grow-963-million-2010-2017-186-billion-2017)

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that about 1 in every 3 Americans over 65 years of age fall annually. And, significantly, the New England Journal of Medicine has reported that if victims of falls and other medical emergencies receive assistance within one hour, ninety percent (90%) recover to continue to live independently.

Ronn Schuman, CEO of Connectyx Technologies Holdings Group, Inc., said, "We have been looking for a partner in the PERS market for a few years as these devices add considerable value to our already robust In Case of Emergency, (I.C.E.) member benefit program. Having already worked with Mr. Larkin, Founder of U.S.A. Medical Monitoring Services on some other related healthcare projects, we believed that the added value of this company would be significant for our members and add additional shareholder value as we increase our membership of this growing vertical."

Separately, the company is already in contract negotiations emanating from the CTYX's recently announced contract with CallCenterTeam.com. Total revenues from the contract are projected to generate revenues of a minimum of $3 Million in 2013.
