Winsted BDC Side to Focus on Rebuilding Businesses While GaeaCare Focuses on Cleanup Projects 08:45 a.m. 10/06/2005 Provided By Market Wire
NEWPORT BEACH, CA, Oct 06, 2005 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- Winsted Holdings, Inc. (WHLI), a Business Development Company (BDC), is pleased to announce that it is focusing on its Hurricanes Katrina and Rita efforts on assisting small to mid-sized companies on rebuilding their businesses. This will be done through the Louisiana Economic Development ( http://www.lded.state.la.us/ ), which has been designated by Louisiana Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco as the official economic development agency to connect Louisiana businesses with the resources they need and to foster growth across all industries.
"GaeaCare Syndicate Partners will go after the cleanup-treatment projects worth millions of dollars in revenue for the company and the BDC staffers will go after rebuilding businesses with capital and possibly jobs," stated Winsted Holdings CEO Mark Ellis. "Five weeks after Hurricane Katrina emptied New Orleans of its 470,000 people, the city remains a deserted shell. Even as Governor Blanco, Mayor Nagin and the New Orleans City Council are assembling blue-ribbon commissions to devise a strategy for rebuilding the storm-ravaged city, businesses that have the resources to reopen are thinking of either downsizing or reinventing their business models in light of the changed business landscape."
"Rebuilding or reinventing a business is something we are very good at. Just look at what we have done for Nu Image MedSpa's Charlotte Laser Center and BareSkin. They both have been breaking sales records ever since we took over the stewardship. Our own wide-ranging internal expertise coupled with our ability to tap outside resources, as a BDC (Business Development Company), is exactly what some of the businesses in New Orleans need right now. We are at the right place at the right time," Ellis concluded.

MedSpa Solutions' Omaha, Nebraska Client Signs Lease at Village Pointe 10/11/2005 8:36:30 AM
IRVINE, CA, Oct 11, 2005 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- MedSpa Solutions Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Winsted Holdings Inc. (WHLI), today announced that an optimal site was located and lease negotiations have successfully concluded for a new medspa in Omaha, Nebraska. As previously announced on July 18, 2005, it was awarded a comprehensive consultancy contract by an entrepreneurial licensed Physician Assistant (PA). This Contract covered Business Development, Site Design & Build out, Staffing & Training, Vendor Relationships, Licensing & Compliance Assistance and Custom Marketing Development. With the lease signed, Phase II will now begin. MedSpa Solutions has 13 potential new MedSpa locations under negotiations as of this date with potential revenues over 1 million dollars.
Celebrating its 151st birthday, the territory that would eventually become the city of Omaha, Nebraska, was acquired as part of the Louisiana Purchase that was completed by Thomas Jefferson in 1803. Its location in the "heartland" of America has been an important factor in the building of its economic strengths. Situated on the western banks of the Missouri River, the city has been an important agricultural and transportation center since its establishment in the late 1850s. From these roots, Omaha has steadily grown and is now the 42nd largest city and the 60th largest metro area in the nation. Most recently, Expansion Management Magazine listed Omaha among America's 50 hottest cities for business expansion and Forbes ranked it as the 11th best city for business and careers based on economic and quality of life factors. Our own demographic research couldn't have agreed more with those esteemed publications, and that is why we believe a new effective and efficient medspa will do very well in Omaha.
The new medspa will be located in the Village Pointe Shopping Center (www.villagepointeshopping.com). It is Nebraska's largest lifestyle shopping center, opened in May 2004, and features extensive retail, dining and entertainment options. The Center is a fresh new place for shopping, dining, entertainment and family fun. Discover their eclectic mix of restaurants, unique clothing and specialty stores and a 16-screen stadium-seating theatre. Located at 168th & West Dodge Road in Omaha, Nebraska. The Center's major tenants include Scheels All Sports, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Wild Oats Natural Marketplace and Village Pointe Cinema. Sit-down & fast casual dining and entertainment venues round out their leasable area of 600,000 square feet.
"The Village Pointe location was selected for its upscale lifestyle development designed in a 'prairie style' concept distinctive to the Midwest," stated Winsted CEO Mark Ellis. "With an open-air lifestyle design that replicates a nostalgic Main Street shopping district, this shopping center allows vehicular access but creates a pedestrian environment. In creating a new 'old downtown' feeling, the shopping experience allows consumers the opportunity to seek a simpler lifestyle, one that emphasizes family, friends, values and experiences. This is an ideal setting for a new medspa."
"The new medspa will become an integral part of the Village Pointe experience. The location will provide instant access to the Center's rapidly growing customer base and in return, it will help broaden the Center's marketplace. The new medspa can accelerate the velocity of foot traffic for the Center. In a way, by expanding the community of goods and services offered, more riches flow back to the originators. We are glad to be part of this unparalleled combination of offerings in Nebraska," concluded Ellis.
