TEL AVIV, June 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- mBeach Software Inc. ("MBHS") (OTCBB:MBHS), the holding company for Skin Cancer Scanning Ltd. (SCS), announced today that on May 31, 2011 it entered into a binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to acquire 51% of Pomega, Inc., a cosmeceutical and nutraceutical company specializing in therapeutic skin care made with proprietary Omega 5 oil technology and knowhow and sold under the Pomega5® brand. Capitalizing on the synergies between these companies, the contemplated acquisition will position MBHS as a leader in diagnostic skin health systems and topical aesthetic applications.

Under the MOU, MBHS will acquire 51% of Pomega, partly by investing no less than $2.550 million in Pomega and partly by issuing new MBHS shares to Pomega shareholders in exchange for a portion of their shares in Pomega. The MOU is contingent upon funding, limited in time and is subject to a definitive agreement.

The de-facto merger, when concluded, will allow the group to conduct clinical trials in the area of Omega 5 CLA (sourced from pomegranate seed oil) and develop products for the aesthetic medicine industry, which currently has no ultra-green only botanical-sourced skin care lines. Pomegranate seed oil contains up to 80% punicic acid and has been reported to possess medicinal properties including anti-carcinogenic activity against breast cancer and skin cancer. Other benefits of pomegranate seed oil have been reported to act in the areas of immune function, cancer prevention and therapy, cardiovascular health, skin health, and healthy lipid metabolism.

MBHS's CEO, Mr. Joseph Biderman, Col (ret.) stated, "We feel that the acquisition of a controlling interest in Pomega will greatly increase shareholder value. We believe Pomega is a very exciting company with strong potential to succeed in the global market for advanced skin care technologies and wellness, and we expect the merger to bring together complementary visions about innovation, efficiency, and accountability to the skin treatment industry."

"Pomega is committed to exploring new ways to extend targeted, efficacious skin care formulations to various market segments," said Pomega's CEO, Mrs. Tzeira Sofer. "We anticipate that this acquisition will bring new botanical healing solutions to skin ailments by combining SCS's research capabilities with Pomega's market ready products. We look forward to working together to continue to improve and grow both companies."
