MDS Reports First Quarter 2008 Results
Date:3/6/2008

f 2008 was $4 million lower than the first quarter of 2007 due to $2 million of lower stock-based compensation and productivity, partially offset by the negative impact of foreign exchange on spending from the strengthening of the Canadian dollar, British pound and the euro over the same period.

During the first quarter of 2008, we continued to implement our restructuring plan announced in 2007. These plans are now 90% complete with the balance of actions expected to be substantially completed in the second quarter of 2008.

During the second quarter of 2007, we approved and recorded a $61 million provision to reimburse clients who have incurred or will incur third pa
