Date:2/25/2009

Outlines the Sharp and Substantial Deterioration of Stockholder Value under the Current Board and Management Team

Discloses Details of Plan to Restore Value for Benefit of All Stockholders

CINCINNATI, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The LCA-Vision Full Value Committee announced today that it has filed presentations with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Full Value Committee's solicitation of consents to replace the existing Board of Directors of LCA-Vision, Inc. (Nasdaq: LCAV) ("LCAV") with the Full Value Committee's five highly qualified nominees. The presentations provide (i) a comprehensive review of the multiple problems currently facing LCAV as a result of the grave failures by the LCAV Board and senior management to prudently manage the critical drivers of the business, (ii) specific details about the Full Value Committee's plan for restoring value at LCA-Vision, and (iii) a thorough analysis of the reasons we believe the current management's plan is destined to fail. The presentations and other proxy materials are available free of charge at www.sec.gov or at www.LCAVisionFullValueCommittee.com.

In the presentations, the Full Value Committee outlines LCA-Vision's dramatic financial underperformance and shows that significant operational, financial and governance problems continue to plague the Company and materially impair stockholder value. Specifically, the presentations address and detail:

  • The Financial Catastrophe that has taken place under CEO Steve Straus and the current Board, including the sharp deterioration in LCA-Vision's stock price; market capitalization; enterprise value; cash flows; same store procedural volume and revenues; marketing efficiencies and effectiveness; and market share, among other key metrics;
  • The Numerous Failures of the Current LCA-Vision Board and Senior Management Team; and
  • The Full Value Committee's Turnaround Plan for Restoring Value at LCA-Vision, including how they will grow the current business; restore the broken relationships with the Company's affiliated physicians, who generate 100% of the Company's revenues; work to improve efficiency and reduce costs strategically; build marketing into a core competency of the Company and significantly drive down marketing costs; and how they will improve patient quality of care, among other key initiatives.

The Full Value Committee urges all stockholders to vote the WHITE consent card to help remove the current Board that has presided over a loss of over $1 billion in stockholder value and, in its place, to install competent, experienced directors and a proven executive management team with the financial incentives, commitment and requisite experience to Restore the Value and Restore the Vision to LCA-Vision. Vote for change on the WHITE consent card -- Today!
