The following is a copy of an update posted on the Global Med website on February 11, 2010.
Global Med Technologies is pleased to announce plans for a “merger-acquisition” between Haemonetics, a global leader in blood management solutions and Global Med Technologies, an international health information technology company.
About the Acquisition Process
  On February 1, 2010 Haemonetics and Global Med announced Haemonetics’ plans to acquire Global Med’s international business through the purchase of Global Med’s outstanding shares
    Subject to customary closing conditions, including the tender of at least a majority of the shares of Global Med’s preferred and common stock
  Acquisition is expected to close in the second calendar quarter 2010
Who is Haemonetics?
  A $600 million global leader in blood management solutions     
  Publicly traded as HAE on the New York Stock Exchange
  Employs more than 1,800 people in 16 countries and markets products in over 50 countries
  Haemonetics helps plasma fractionators, hospitals and blood collectors to improve health care and lower costs by optimizing the collection, processing, and use of scarce blood resources
  Haemonetics has integrated their device, IT, and service offerings into comprehensive blood management solutions to help manage the blood supply chain and improve blood management practices
Software products include:
    Hemasphere™ (Haemonetics Altivation ) mobile drive resource management
    Surround™ (Haemonetics IDM) blood laboratory system
    elynx™ workflow optimization system
  Devices include:
    Blood component collection technologies
    Surgical blood salvage systems
    Diagnostics products for enhanced blood management in surgery
    Blood Track® software enabled refrigerators for the automated disposition of blood components at the point of care
    Single-use consumables for their devices



Why is Haemonetics acquiring Global Med?
  This acquisition accelerates Haemonetics’ vision of offering a complete suite of products required to accomplish an integrated data management system from the very front end of the blood management process (web-enabled donor recruitment) — to the automated disposition of blood — to the patient at the point of care, by building integrated software offerings.
  Global Med offers products that complement Haemonetics’ existing platforms:
    Donor Recruitment System
    Donor Management Information System
    Cellular Therapy/Tissue Tracking System
    Hospital Transfusion Information System
  Global Med has an international presence in blood bank and hospital based transfusion management systems (Global Med’s Inlog SA subsidiary)
Why is Global Med joining with Haemonetics?
  Together, we can help our customers improve efficiencies and achieve improved economic and clinical outcomes to deliver best blood management practices and maintain regulatory compliance
  We share a common strategy to provide blood management tools to hospitals and blood centers that can help improve patient care and reduce costs
  Haemonetics brings:
    devices, software, and consulting services for optimal blood management in the blood center and hospital markets
    global reach, strong sales force in blood banks and hospitals, and resources
  Both companies have a strong reputation for industry leadership and customer satisfaction
How will this impact me?
Will my software continue to be supported?
  Yes, we will continue to support existing platforms
How will this affect my User Group, client support and technical services support?
  User Groups are client-sponsored organizations and should not be affected
  There are no plans to change support services
What if I am in the middle of an implementation or upgrade?
  Global Med is proceeding “business as usual” in all areas of client implementation and support
What additional benefits will I gain?



  Combined entities will create a $60 million software organization with greater resources for product development, an expanded IT knowledge-base, and more extensive global reach
  Customers will have an increased opportunity for operational efficiency, ease of use, and process enhancements through additional software product, device and service offerings
  We intend to integrate information technology platforms across the blood supply chain — from donor to patient — to enhance interoperability, and help you achieve and maintain meaningful use standards
How can I find out more information?
  Because Global Med and Haemonetics are publically traded companies, specific details of the transaction and future business plans can only be made available after the acquisition has been officially completed. Both companies will provide more information to clients immediately following the formal acquisition.
