Our strategy has been to create a medical device company that has proprietary, innovative, high margin products that utilize ultrasound as the core technology and we believe the completion of this transaction further supports that goal. Additionally, the cash payment of $3.6 million plus future payments of up to $2 million will give Misonix a solid balance sheet with sufficient cash reserves and no long-term debt.
