The Company's balance sheet continues to be strong and includes $123 million in cash and cash equivalents.
Chief Executive Officer Joseph P. Caruso commented, "The downturn in the global economy continues to affect the aesthetic laser industry. The decrease in revenue across the sector has been swift and severe driven by the inability of many prospective customers to obtain financing and prompting others to delay their capital equipment purchases until economic conditions improve. We are responding to these challenging economic times by taking actions to reduce our cost structure to be more in line with current sales levels in all areas of the company, including reductions in headcount and operating expense. Our flexible business model enables us to lower expenses to respond to lower current revenue levels while still investing a higher than industry average on fundamental research and new product development. During the quarter, we were also able to balance sales price, volume and operating expenses which resulted in a close to breakeven bottom line and positive cash flows from operations."
Mr. Caruso continued, "We have built a diversified business model that does not rely solely on high-priced capital equipment sales. During the fourth quarter, 42% of our revenue was generated from sources not related to our capital equipment sales. These are volatile economic times, but we feel confident that we have the resources needed to navigate through them, continue as an industry leader, and when the economy recovers, emerge as a stronger company."

About Palomar Medical Technologies Inc: Palomar is a leading researcher and developer of light-based systems for cosmetic treatments. Palomar pioneered the optical hair removal field, when, in 1997, it introduced the first high-powered laser hair removal system.
