Graymark Healthcare to Focus on Treatment of Sleep Disorders with Completed Sale of Independent Pharmacy Business Assets to Walgreens
Date:12/7/2010

OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Graymark Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: GRMH) has closed the previously announced sale of substantially all the assets of its ApothecaryRx's retail pharmacy business to Walgreens Co. (NYSE: WAG, Nasdaq: WAG). ApothecaryRx operated 18 pharmacies across five states.

The transaction allows Graymark to focus on its core business of providing comprehensive care for sleep disorders, primarily obstructive sleep apnea, including diagnosis, therapy, and ongoing clinical and product support.

"Millions of Americans suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, and many aren't aware they have a problem or that treatment is available in their communities," said Stanton Nelson, chairman and CEO of Graymark Healthcare. "As a pure-play sleep disorders company focused primarily on obstructive sleep apnea, we believe Graymark is better able to help people sleep better."

Graymark launched the nation's first comprehensive care model for patients with obstructive sleep apnea in 2009 and has grown into one of the nation's largest aggregators of sleep therapy providers.

"Given our substantially improved balance sheet as a result of this sale, we are ideally positioned to execute on our plans to grow through the acquisition of treatment centers, as well as through developing alliances with hospitals and other health care providers," added Nelson. "The rapidly growing sleep apnea marketplace offers us an opportunity for significant growth and margin expansion."

The sale to Walgreens was comprised of substantially all of the assets of ApothecaryRx for $25.5 million, plus approximately $3.8 million for inventory. Graymark expects to realize net proceeds of approximately $33 million from the completed divestiture, including collection of retained accounts receivable, and proceeds from the liquidation of remaining ApothecaryRx assets.
