CENTERVILLE, MA � December 15, 2010 (Investorideas.com Newswire) - UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) (the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it is moving forward with plans to acquire a renowned US manufacturer of high quality air purification equipment designed for industrial applications including specialization in the medical and hospitality marketplace.
The agreement includes a patented, trademarked product line, with dozens of national distributors and representatives, an extensive customer list, inventory, and all associated manufacturing equipment. The company's sales include an installed base of several thousand units in over 1000 unique facilities nationwide, including over 400 hospitals.
"We are thrilled that the acquisition could close by year-end," said Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu Technologies. "With the acquisition of this Company, our product line will be complemented at the industrial level, while the introduction of our residential product will round-out the consumer end of the retail spectrum. Our current flagship product, the UV-400, can protect indoor spaces of up to 600-900 sq. ft., while the product line we will offer as a result of the new acquisition protects environments regularly ranging from 1000-5000 sq. ft. Additionally, our soon-to-be-introduced residential product will easily protect spaces under 600 sq. ft., providing us with full coverage for most every indoor scenario. We have extensively studied the test results and are satisfied that the HEPA based technology we are acquiring captures in excess of 99.97% of the particulates passing through it, is the finest in the industry, and an excellent fit to our long term goals," said Mr. Lennon.
"Our new acquisition will be operated as a subsidiary of UV Flu Technologies, and will provide a US manufacturing base to aid in the pursuit of government and DoD contract opportunities. We anticipate this added market segment will also lead to additional jobs and overall growth for the Company," said Mr. Lennon. "The enhanced product line will make us increasingly attractive to large US distributors, and increase our visibility within the hospital, hotel and casino marketplace. Upon the close of the transaction we will immediately reveal the identity of the acquisition and introduce our distributors to the entire product line, both domestically, as well as internationally. We believe the synergies will be extraordinary and hope to significantly increase our revenue estimates for 2011 as a result. Once our residential model is introduced to the lineup in 2011 we are highly optimistic for increased traction across the entire segment. We are very encouraged by the prospects and look forward to offering a full line of products that really work -- and all of which offer verified and laboratory proven test data for every application."
