Hooper Holmes, Inc. (NYSE MKT: HH) announced today that on December 31, 2015, the Company elected to extend the period during which the subscription rights may be exercised so that they will expire if they are not exercised by 4:00 p.m., central time, on January 25, 2016 due to delays in getting the prospectus mailed during the Holiday Season. All references in prior press releases and filings to a different time or date for the subscription period to end are amended to reflect this new date and time. In all other respects, the terms of the rights offering remain in effect as disclosed previously. The prospectus will be mailed to all shareholders of record as of December 24, 2015.

"Given logistical delays during the holiday season, we felt it appropriate to extend the Subscription Period one week to make sure we provide sufficient time for shareholders to act on our Rights Offering," said Henry E. Dubois, president and CEO. "We continue to receive significant interest in this $4.0 million offering and are pleased to report that to date, we already have non-binding indications from some key shareholders that they intend to invest $2.3 million in the offering. We are excited about completing our restructuring initiatives, recapitalizing the company, and focusing on profitable growth as we head into 2016."
