"We continue to execute on our strategic plan with another record quarter," said Michael Dalsin, Chairman of PHM. "As of June 2014, PHM is generating over $32 million in annualized revenues and $6.2 million in annualized EBITDA. It was a break out quarter for PHM with regard to expansion of our active patient databases. The cross-selling and organic growth efforts resulted in an annual organic revenue growth rate of over 21.4% for the quarter. It is gratifying to see PHM move from solely a M&A focused company to one that can deliver both organic and inorganic growth at a material level.

It is important to keep in mind that this quarter's revenues and profits only included the month of June of the Care Medical Partners acquisition. Had the full quarter included Care Medical Partners, quarterly revenues would have exceeded $8 million and net profits would have exceeded $1.25 million.

On the acquisition front, PHM's M&A team is negotiating LOIs to acquire profitable companies with cumulative revenues of about $12 million. Our pipeline remains full with the M&A team reviewing over a dozen opportunities a month.

I want to once again congratulate the operational team, led by Andrew Folmer on a record quarter, both in terms of revenues and profits. Particularly I want to credit David Hayes, our Senior Vice President of Sales, with setting up our internal cross selling call center. I also want to credit Jess Cuthbert, our VP of Operations and Asa Stafford, our VP of Patient Services for their work in integrating Care Medical into PHM."

About PHM

PHM is an acquisition-oriented, fast-growing and profitable company servicing patients with heart disease and other chronic health conditions. PHM is focused on acquiring companies in a highly fragmented and developing market of small privately-held companies servicing chronically ill patients with multiple disease states caused mainly by age and obesity. Because of the new and highly fragmented nature of the market, PHM is actively identifying and evaluating profitable, annuity-based companies to acquire at favorable prices for their patient databases and technical expertise. PHM's post-acquisition organic growth strategy is to increase annual revenue per patient by offering multiple services to the same patient, consolidating the patient's services and making life easier for the patient. The expected result is growing EPS with each acquisition and growing revenue and profits from the cross selling efforts.
