NEW YORK -- July 09, 2012

Global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal announced that Charlie
Ditkoff, former vice chairman and head of Global Healthcare Corporate and
Investment Banking at Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML), has joined the
firm’s Healthcare Industry Group as a senior adviser based in New York.

As a top healthcare industry investment banker, Mr. Ditkoff has held senior
positions at BAML, Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse First Boston over the past
15 years, specializing in investor-owned healthcare companies. Charlie has
served as the senior strategist for some of the largest investor-owned
healthcare services and private equity firms during his tenure.

Bryan Marsal, co-chief executive officer of A&M, said, “Charlie joins A&M as
the U.S. healthcare system ushers in a new era and navigates uncharted waters.
His background, industry expertise and acute understanding of what healthcare
companies, both in the U.S. and abroad, are facing significantly augments our
global offerings.”

Under Mr. Ditkoff’s direction, BAML led the market in healthcare sector
mergers and acquisitions and financings. Prior to joining BAML, he focused on
healthcare deals at Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse First Boston. Before
that, he served as a corporate securities lawyer at Cravath, Swaine and Moore.

“With regulatory volatility dominating the healthcare industry, I look forward
to working with the A&M team to help companies strengthen their positions in
the marketplace as they look for ways to deliver value and stand out among
competitors,” said Mr. Ditkoff.

“As healthcare organizations, both not-for-profit and investor-owned, look to
strategically and proactively assess and react to the changing healthcare
landscape, we believe A&M and our clients will be extremely well served by
having access to Charlie’s deep industry experience and long-term
relationships,” said Guy Sansone, head of A&M’s Healthcare Industry Group.

A graduate of Brown University, Mr. Ditkoff earned his law degree from Yale
Law School. He is a member of the board of directors at QuantiaMD, a
healthcare social networking company, a senior adviser to the Marwood Group
and Of Counsel at McDermott Will & Emery.
