BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Oct. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hooper Holmes (Amex: HH) today announced the sale of Medicals Direct Group, the Company's subsidiary in the United Kingdom, to Brandgold Ltd., a management buyout group organized by Michael Benton, CEO of Medicals Direct. The purchase price was $15.25 million.

Following the terms of the transaction, $14 million (less closing adjustments of approximately $1.2 million), was paid to Hooper Holmes when the sale closed on October 9. Terms specify additional payments to Hooper Holmes of $500,000 within nine months of the closing and $750,000 within 24 months. All payments are in U.S. dollars.

Hooper Holmes announced the planned sale of Medicals Direct on August 9, 2007.
