Amerita grows to ten locations

Irvine, California, March 18, 2008 – Amerita, Inc. announced today that it has acquired IV Solutions located at 217 West Maplewood Lane, Nashville, TN 37207. This marks Amerita’s sixth acquisition in the last two years and continues the company’s strategy to expand its presence in the Southeast region.

Started in 1994, IV Solutions has grown to be one of the largest independent infusion pharmacies in Nashville and has a tremendous clinical and service reputation in the communities it serves, said Jim Glynn, CEO of Amerita. IV Solutions provides specialty infusion services that primarily involve the administration of injectable or infused medications to treat a wide range of acute and chronic health conditions. This acquisition is our second Tennessee location and complements our existing Chattanooga branch by expanding our service area throughout the entire state of Tennessee and also broadens our clinical capabilities in a new therapy line for the company.

Michael Young, founder of IV Solutions, said, “Amerita and IV Solutions are a great fit. Our two companies share the same values and philosophy for specialty infusion excellence: a strong clinical focus, a true commitment to patient care and customer satisfaction, and exceptional employees who are dedicated to their patients and their local communities.” He added, “Amerita’s management team has been excellent to work with. I am confident that Amerita will create the very best environment for the company that I founded more than ten years ago to grow and prosper for many years to come.”

“Amerita continues to execute the plan we put in place two years ago to acquire well run home infusion companies in the West, Southwest and Southeast,” said Glynn. “The IV Solutions acquisition expands our service capabilities in the Mid-South and furthers our goal to build a company of scale that provides high-quality specialty infusion services to patients across the Southern U.S. We are excited to have Mike’s team as a part of the Amerita family."

Amerita, Inc. is a privately held Specialty Infusion company focused on providing complex pharmaceutical products and clinical services to patients outside of the hospital. This market is expanding rapidly and is driven by increasing healthcare costs, a growing bio-pharmaceutical pipeline of infuseable and injectable medications and an aging population. Amerita is headquartered at 20 Fairbanks, Suite 173, Irvine, CA 92618. Phone: (949) 273-6528 / Fax: (949) 273-6547
