November 29, 2007 — ST. CLAIR SHORES, MI, NASTOLA, FINLAND and ROSWELL, GA — Healthmark Industries Co., Inc. and Wipak Medical are pleased to announce the acquisition and assumption of Kimberly-Clark Health Care’s peel pouch business. Wipak is a global leader in the production and marketing of flexible packaging, including peel pouches.

Each company has expressed its belief that this change will be of the highest benefit to their mutual sterile processing customers. The acquisition will allow Healthmark and Wipak to establish a broader line of sterilization packaging in the market while allowing Kimberly-Clark to focus on innovation in the rest of its line of clinically preferred medical devices and supplies.

As of November 30, 2007, the Kimberly-Clark worldwide peel pouch and tubing business will officially transition to Healthmark. Through November 30, 2007, customers will continue to purchase peel pouch and tubing products from Kimberly-Clark.

As of December 1, 2007 and from that date forward, Healthmark will take ownership of all existing product inventories and assume full accountability for order processing, customer service, and other sales activities.
