MBF Healthcare Acquisition Corp. Amends Stock Purchase Agreement With Critical Homecare Solutions Holdings, Inc. to Extend Termination Date to October 31, 2008
Date:9/2/2008

CORAL GABLES, Fla., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MBF Healthcare Acquisition Corp. (Amex: MBH), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company, announced today the amendment of the Stock Purchase Agreement for MBH's proposed acquisition of Critical Homecare Solutions Holdings, Inc. ("CHS"), based on the signed definitive stock purchase agreement dated February 6, 2008 (the "Stock Purchase Agreement"). CHS is a privately-owned, leading provider of comprehensive home infusion therapy and specialty infusion services. MBH, CHS and the Sellers have agreed to extend the termination date of the Stock Purchase Agreement as October 31, 2008, given that the parties have agreed that the conditions set forth previously have been met.

On August 28, 2008, MBH executed a new financing commitment with CIT Healthcare and Jefferies Finance LLC, in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Stock Purchase Agreement. As previously announced, MBH was engaged in seeking alternative sources of financing given that its financing commitment letter with Jefferies Finance LLC, dated February 6, 2008, expired pursuant to its terms on July 31, 2008.

MBH will reflect the changes in the transaction in an amendment to the preliminary proxy statement to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and anticipates commencing the road show in October.
