Nyer Medical Group, Inc. Announces Sale of Company's Florida Medical-Surgical Division; Pharmacy Division Awarded Two-Year Preferred Supplier Contract
Date:7/9/2008

BANGOR, Maine, July 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nyer Medical Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: NYER) announced that it has sold ADCO South Medical Supplies, Inc., ("ADCO South") its Florida Medical-Surgical division. Nyer further announced that its pharmacy division, D.A.W. Inc., was awarded a two-year contract with Sunrise Senior Living, Inc. to be the preferred pharmacy provider at all 16 of the company's Assisted Living Facilities in Massachusetts. The award was made at the conclusion of a competitive proposal submission and review process. Residents at the facilities approximate 1,600.

"We strongly believe that the divestiture of ADCO South was in the best interest of the shareholders. Its operation provided no synergies to our core business and was at the same time geographically cumbersome," stated President and CEO Mark Dumouchel. "We are additionally enthusiastic about having been awarded preferred vendor status by the Sunrise Assisted Living team. The awarding of the contract by this first-class organization is consistent with our strategic goals of being the area's top pharmacy niche provider," Dumouchel further stated. "With the aging of the baby-boomer population, we foresee a rapidly expanding demand for the specialized services inherent in our core competence, and we will continue to adapt our company to meet the needs of the Assisted Living Community and other unique niches within the market."
