TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- IMD Companies, Inc., (OTC Markets symbol ICBU), announces the acquisition of the trademark Kidshape®. The company acquired the brand from Healthy America Inc., (HAI), a Delaware corporation. The transaction was finalized effective April 25, 2011 following a vote of the shareholders of HAI. The deal included IMD restricted stock. The company also assumed the liabilities of HAI in the transaction.

As a result of the transaction, IMD has initiated the transfer of the mark as well as copyrighted materials belonging to the Kidshape program to IMD, with the United States Patent Office. The Kidshape program is a comprehensive juvenile weight-loss system that has a history of success in the battle to combat childhood and teen obesity. The Kidshape curriculum has been in use for over five years and is well recognized in the pediatric obesity treatment circles. IMD plans to use the material in conjunction with those produced by its subsidiary, Positive Solutions Centers, to provide a turnkey licensee program for centers and practitioners focused on treating the current pediatric obesity epidemic. It is IMD's intention to also approach state and local governments with the intention of implementing the curriculum in the school system.

"Given the current emphasis on combating the obesity epidemic effecting today's youth, IMD plans to achieve great market penetration using the programs it now owns, in conjunction with the previously released P.L.A.Y. program. These developments evidence the company's continued success in implementing its goals outlined in our open letter to our shareholders," Stated IMD President and CEO Saeb Jannoun.
