The Female Health Company's Brazilian Distributor, Semina, Awarded Contract For Up To 20 Million FC2 Female Condoms
Date:5/6/2011

CHICAGO, May 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Female Health Company (NASDAQ-CM: FHCO) today announced that its exclusive distributor in Brazil, Semina Industria e Comercio (Semina), was successful in a public tender to supply the Brazilian Ministry of Health (MOH) with up to 20 million FC2 Female Condoms.  The contract is valid through March 29, 2012.  The actual quantity purchased will be determined at the Ministry of Health's discretion.

O.B. Parrish, Chairman and C.E.O. of The Female Health Company, noted that the contract reflects Brazil's and the MOH's leadership in providing women with options to control their health and in further enhancing the national HIV/AIDS prevention program.

FHCO and Semina have agreed to install a local FC2 production facility in Brazil if nationwide consumption continues to grow significantly, reaching an average of 20 million units annually.

Parrish reaffirmed the statement in the Company's February 4, 2011 earnings release that it may experience significant quarter to quarter variations in results due to the timing of substantial orders and that it expected modest results for the first half of fiscal 2011 and strong results for the second half of the fiscal year.
