“Our fourth quarter preliminary sales performance reflects strong execution of our strategy, continued improvement in our underlying business and procedure trends and measured improvement in the global capital equipment environment,” stated Robert L. Gershon, Chief Executive Officer of Mauna Kea Technologies. “Fourth quarter preliminary sales increased 30% to 36% year-over-year driven by an increase of 34% to 38% year-over-year in sales to U.S. customers and an increase of 26% to 33% year-over-year in sales to Rest-of-World customers. Fourth quarter sales growth was driven primarily by a continuation in the strong new system adoption trends we experienced during the third quarter and believe the strong system sales growth in the fourth quarter reflects both the improving health of the global capital equipment environment, and, further evidence that our new U.S. targeting strategy is well-defined. We are encouraged by the indications this quarter that the global capital equipment environment has continued to improve in recent months and we look forward to improving consumable demand as the global recovery continues to progress and customers around the world return to normal case-loads.”
