"Thermage is focused on a strategy that includes organic growth, as well as complementary acquisitions that add value for our customers and shareholders," continued Mr. Fanning. "One of the primary reasons behind our IPO was to raise funds that would allow us to pursue this strategy. During the first quarter, we reached an advanced stage of negotiations with a potential acquisition target and had performed significant due diligence on the project before negotiations were terminated. We incurred approximately $1.0 million in outside advisory fees pursuing this acquisition. We remain committed to our strategy to build our presence in the aesthetics market, both organically and through acquisitions that will allow us to expand our product offerings to our customer base and leverage our operating infrastructure."

While we anticipate that economic conditions will remain challenging throughout the year, we will continue our focus to drive revenue, expand market share, and build upon our reputation as a leader in safe, effective skin tightening and contouring procedures," concluded Mr. Fanning.
