Claims Evaluation Division (CED)
The CED reported first quarter revenues of $6.7 million, a decrease of 15.0% compared to $7.9 million in the first quarter of 2007. The decrease was primarily the result of a continued contraction in the number of independent medical exams ordered by our customers.
Roy H. Bubbs, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hooper Holmes, commented, "Our performance in the first quarter reflects improved gross margins and reduced SG&A as a result of the financial discipline we continue to drive throughout the organization. Over the course of 2008, we will continue our efforts to strengthen Portamedic, leverage the synergies among our businesses, and look forward to introducing new market offerings that we believe will play an integral part in our future success. We have identified numerous opportunities for improving our Company and we are working diligently toward addressing them."
