ATI MEDICAL ANNOUNCES INJUNCTION FILED BY KINETIC THERAPEUTIC SERVICES

ATI MEDICAL ANNOUNCES INJUNCTION FILED BY KINETIC THERAPEUTIC SERVICES
 LAS VEGAS, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- ATI Medical Inc. (AMEX: ATI) today announced that Kinetic Therapeutic Services Inc., a Delaware corporation engaged in the business of renting medical equipment ("Kinetic"), has instituted an action against MEDIQ, PRN and the company in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas (San Antonio Division) seeking a preliminary and permanent injunction enjoining and restraining MEDIQ and PRN from acquiring the company. In its complaint, Kinetic alleged that the merger would violate the predatory pricing and other forms of unfair competition of Section 7 of the Clayton Act and would substantially lessen competition and tend to create a monopoly in the life support and critical care equipment rental business in the United States.
 ATI believes that Kinetic's complaint is without merit and intends to vigorously oppose it.
 ATI also announced that it would continue to implement the proposed merger with MEDIQ/PRN, which will require shareholder approval.
 ATI Medical Inc. rents medical equipment primarily to hospitals, as well as to the entertainment industry. The company also sells medical equipment and certain disposables. ATI's Americare division provides medical equipment for rental through exclusive home health care dealers covering 100 markets nationwide. The company's subsidiary, ALLcare Home Therapy Providers, services the home infusion therapy market in diverse geographic locations.
