PRESS RELEASE

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AdaptHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: AHCO) (“AdaptHealth” or the “Company”), a leading provider of home medical equipment, supplies and related services in the United States, announced today that it has closed the previously announced acquisitions of Solara Medical Supplies, LLC (“Solara”) and ActivStyle, Inc. (“ActivStyle”). The acquisitions were consummated for combined total consideration of approximately $487 million consisting of approximately $424.5 million in cash and $62.5 million in AdaptHealth Class A common stock.

AdaptHealth believes Solara is one of the largest direct-to-patient providers of diabetes management supplies in the United States, including continuous glucose monitors (CGM), insulin pumps and other diabetic supplies. ActivStyle is a leading direct-to-consumer supplier that provides incontinence and urology products.

“These are highly strategic, complementary and accretive acquisitions,” said Luke McGee, CEO of AdaptHealth. “We believe Solara will immediately establish AdaptHealth as a leader in the high-growth diabetes market and advances our goal to offer high-value services to people with chronic conditions in their homes. ActivStyle will add critical mass to important supply product categories; each company also brings to AdaptHealth a talented group of industry professionals. The addition of Solara and ActivStyle will enrich our direct-to-patient product offerings, create a single supply source for an expanded set of chronic care products and services, and increase our overall exposure to recurring supply sales.”

As previously announced, Steve Foreman, CEO of Solara, Gayle Devin, CEO of ActivStyle, and key members of their respective management teams have joined AdaptHealth. Each company will continue to operate under its current name.

AdaptHealth funded the transactions and associated costs through a combination of incremental term loan borrowing under its existing credit agreement and equity investments of $190 million and $35 million, respectively, by One Equity Partners and funds managed by Deerfield Management. Brad Coppens, Managing Director of One Equity Partners, will join the board of AdaptHealth.
