The Health Care M&A Information Service and Senior Living Business Win First Place in the 32nd Annual International Specialized Information Publishers Foundation Competition

Norwalk, CT – June 17, 2008 — The Specialized Information Publishers Foundation (SIPF) recognized The Health Care M&A Information Service as “Best Reference Publication” among hundreds of entries. The Health Care M&A Information Service provides market intelligence on health care mergers and acquisitions through an online database and print and electronic newsletters and reports. In addition, a new sister publication, Senior Living Business, also earned a first place award. The 2008 awards were presented at the 32nd Annual International Newsletter & Specialized Information Publishers Conference held in June in Washington, DC.

“We were delighted to have received, once again, such prestigious awards in such highly competitive areas of publishing,” says Eleanor B. Meredith, publisher. Through its various publications and information services, Irving Levin Associates provides Wall Street investors, health care executives, and providers and suppliers with timely, accurate, and reliable market intelligence, financial news, and business strategies.

The SIPF recognition is only the most recent in a string of impressive awards that the company has received. This spring, The American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE) recognized The SeniorCare Investor, the company’s flagship publication and the proven leader for breaking news in the senior care market, with its 2008 Gold Award for “Best Publication: Newsletter,” and the Gold Award for “Best Single Issue of a Newsletter.”
