Merge Explores Options for its Future, Including Sale of the Company

September 19, 2012 — Merge Healthcare Inc. announced that its board of directors has retained Allen & Company LLC, a New York-based investment bank, to assist in exploring and evaluating a broad range of strategic alternatives including, but not limited to, a sale of the company or a business combination.

Merge does not have a defined timeline for the strategic review, and there can be no assurance that the review will result in any specific action or transaction. The company does not intend to comment further regarding the evaluation of strategic alternatives, unless a definitive agreement for a specific transaction is entered into, the process is concluded, or it otherwise deems further disclosure is appropriate or required.
