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.
