Symmetry Medical Reports Preliminary Third Quarter Revenue

WARSAW, Ind., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Symmetry Medical Inc. (NYSE: SMA), an independent provider of products to the global orthopedic device industry and other medical markets, today reported preliminary third quarter 2007 revenue of $76.5 million.

The Company stated that its Audit Committee's review of the accounting irregularities uncovered at its Sheffield UK facility, which was announced October 4, 2007, is continuing.

Brian Moore, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased with the current health of the orthopedic markets and the corresponding increase to both large programs and our capacity utilization. We believe we are in an excellent position to meet this higher demand following our strategic decision to maintain our infrastructure during periods of slower growth. We are pleased with our acquisitions and the cross selling opportunities that they continue to generate. The new Malaysian facility is on schedule and we believe will play a key role in servicing the Asian market."
