Biosign Master Distributor ALQAEM Increases Initial UFIT Order by 150%

TORONTO, Feb. 7 /CNW/ -Biosign Technologies Inc. (TSXV: BIO) announces that the Health Care Division of ALQAEM International FZE has increased their initial order for Biosign's pulse acquisition devices (UFIT® PAD) to 500,000 USD. Biosign plans to start shipping UFIT® to the MENA region this quarter. Under the terms of the Exclusive Master Distributor Agreement between Biosign and ALQAEM, this initial order should generate, once fully deployed, an annual recurring revenue for Biosign in excess of 2 million USD.

Biosign and ALQAEM introduced the UFIT® TEN-20, earlier this year, at Arab Health 2011 in Dubai, UAE. During that conference, Biosign and ALQAEM demonstrated the features and benefits of the UFIT®TEN-20 non-invasive blood pressure and blood glucose monitor to prospective resellers, customers, and government officials. The UFIT® TEN-20 generated the arterial pulse-trace, blood pressure, and blood glucose for visitors at the show through a simple one minute session, demonstrating the ease of use and versatility of the device.

John Rizvi, Managing Director of ALQAEM stated: "At Arab Health 2011, we received a lot of interest from key government leaders and reseller partners in Egypt, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and several other MENA countries. Biosign's UFIT® is quickly gaining attention with consumers as well as institutional customers in this region."

Peter Tassiopoulos, CEO of Biosign, said: "MENA is a growing market and revenue opportunity for Biosign. We are working closely with ALQAEM to ensure that we not only meet but exceed customer expectations for our product line as we begin to deliver our first shipments to the region."
