IRVINE, Calif.--(BW HealthWire)--April 4, 2000--MedCom USA, Inc. (Nasdaq:EMED) announced today that it has enough cash on hand to consummate the pending acquisition of DCB Actuaries and Consultants SRO as previously announced, as well as to complete the initial phase of the planned fixed asset additions for both the MedCard and DCB operations. The DCB transaction, which is expected to close during the quarter ending June 30, 2000, includes a combination of cash and stock. MedCom currently has over $5 million of cash on hand, arising primarily from its current private placement efforts and the exercise of warrants to purchase its common stock.

"We now have the cash resources necessary to finalize the DCB acquisition and to procure the desired technological hard assets. Not only has our cash position improved significantly during the last few months, we have also reduced our debt. Since December 31, 1999, MedCom has reduced its debt by approximately $1 million, including the conversion of about $350,000 of notes payable to common stock, while increasing cash by almost $5 million. Our present monetary position is no comparison to where we were just a few short months ago," said Mr. Mark E. Bennett, President and CEO of MedCom USA, Inc.

Feb. 14, 2000--MedCom USA (Nasdaq:EMED) Monday announced that it is withdrawing its proposal to effect a reverse stock split of its common stock.

"The Board of Directors has withdrawn the reverse stock split because it is no longer necessary. The reverse stock split was proposed at this time solely to deal with the matter of assuring compliance with the Nasdaq stock price requirement.

"Now that the market conditions have increased our stock price to a level well in excess of the required threshold, the reverse split is not needed." stated Mark E. Bennett, president and CEO of MedCom USA.
