Favrille, Inc. Announces Name Change to MMR Information Systems, Inc.
Change of Name to Reflect Broad Scope of Services Offered
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Favrille, Inc. (the "Company") today announced that it will change its corporate name to MMR Information Systems, Inc., effective February 9, 2009. Until a new trading symbol is obtained, the Company will continue to trade on the OTC Bulletin Boards under the symbol "FVRL.OB."
"We believe MyMedicalRecords offers the most user-friendly system for an individual or medical professional to manage information, including Personal Health Records, with access 24/7 from any Internet-connected device," stated Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMR Information Systems, Inc. "The Company's objective in changing its name is to make sure the public understands the full scope of what our products really do, which is to provide a personally-controlled life management tool, not just a storage center for medical records. Our proprietary, patent-pending technologies make MyMedicalRecords the most easy-to-use and versatile PHR and emergency preparedness tool, which we believe is the key to widespread adoption."
The name change was accomplished without the need for a stockholder vote, and current stockholders need not take any action with respect to the name change. The outstanding shares of common and preferred stock will not be affected by the name change. A new CUSIP number (553101 106) was assigned to the outstanding shares of common stock following the effectiveness of the name change. Stock certificates bearing the Favrille, Inc. name and the old CUSIP number of the outstanding common stock (312088404) will continue to be honored.
As previously announced, the Company completed a merger on January 27, 2009 that made MyMedicalRecords, Inc. ("MyMedicalRecords") a wholly-owned operating subsidiary of the Company. The Company's business will be conducted under MyMedicalRecords' brands and identity.
