Frick (euro adhoc) - Lobeck Medical AG plans company purchase or participation in the field of diagnosis, medical technology, medical products

MediSmart® of Switzerland continues to have full order  books  for   its  medical products - At Iran's largest international trade fair in Iran (Iran-MED)  Lobeck Medical AG presented its innovative product lines  in  the  fields  of  diabetes (Sapphire blood glucose meter) and in-vitro  diagnostics  -  Lobeck  Medical  AG obtains additional import licences for Iran

Frick, June 30th, 2009 - Lobeck Medical AG plans to acquire a company operating in the field of diagnosis, medical technology or  medical   products.  The  Swiss medical technology company intends to finance implementation  of  its  expansion strategy exclusively through funds that it can raise itself.    As  a  result  of the difficult economic climate caused by the crisis in  the  financial  markets, the company's management is hoping for  an  interesting  investment   opportunity with favourable terms in the near future.

"The possibility of acquiring a majority stake in another company is also  being considered", explains Andreas Dornbierer, Chairman of   Lobeck  Medical  AG.  "We already have some suitable proposals  and   are  currently  looking  at  them  in detail."

This development marks a further very  positive  step  on  the   growth  path  of Lobeck Medical AG. In the last few months, the Swiss medical technology  company has won new customers worldwide for its home testing products  under  the  brand MediSmart® of Switzerland. Its Sapphire blood glucose meter proved  particularly popular at Iran-MED, the 12th international trade fair for medical,  dental  and laboratory  equipment,  pharmaceutical  products  and  healthcare   services,  in Teheran.

In collaboration with its exclusive  distribution  partner,  Lobeck   Medical  AG presented its user-friendly and high-quality MediSmart® of Switzerland  products in  the  fields  of  diabetes  and  in-vitro diagnostics.  The  Swiss    medical technology company has already been distributing early pregnancy tests  in  Iran for two years. Since the beginning of this  year,  the  Sapphire  blood  glucose meter has been available on the Iranian market - at the moment only in  Teheran. "This positive start-up period motivated  us  to  take   part  in  Iran-MED,  the largest domestic trade fair, in Teheran, and we  did  so  with  great  success", explains Andreas Dornbierer. "More than  300  eligible  sub-agencies,  hospitals and large organisations expressed an interest in our Swiss made products."

Currently, Lobeck Medical AG supplies its products to over  1500   pharmacies  in Teheran. It is the company's goal to add hospitals, doctors  and  pharmacies  in larger Iranian cities to its client base. Two months ago, the  Iranian  Ministry of Health awarded Lobeck Medical AG additional import licences for  two  further products. Since then the company  has  been  able  to  distribute  its   complete MediSmart® of Switzerland product line to all parts of the country.

About the company: The Lobeck Medical AG develops and distributes user friendly  product  solutions for the medical diagnostics market with focus on diabetes (glucometer) and  home test products.  With   sales  offices  in  over  30  countries  the  company  has established a wide international distribution network  to  market   new  products developments under the protected brand name MediSmart® of Switzerland  all  over the world. The Lobeck Medical AG is a Swiss company manufacturing  high  quality blood glucose meters in Switzerland to be distributed worldwide  under  its  own brand name.
