These mostly cash charges will be recorded primarily as restructuring expenses, with a portion recorded through other lines of the income statement. Approximately $275 million to $300 million will be recorded in the fourth quarter of 2007 with the remainder expected to be recorded throughout 2008 and 2009.

The Company plans to restructure several businesses and product franchises in order to leverage resources, strengthen competitive positions, and create a more simplified and efficient business model. Key components of the business restructuring plan include:

-- The Peripheral Interventions and Interventional Cardiology businesses

will be combined under a single management structure to help create a
