IRIDEX Announces Global Distribution and Supply Agreement with Peregrine Surgical, Ltd.
Date:4/2/2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today announced that it has entered into a global distribution and supply agreement with Peregrine Surgical, Ltd., a privately held company based in New Britain, Pennslvania.  Under the agreement, IRIDEX will become a worldwide distributor for Peregrine labeled products and Peregrine Surgical will become part of the IRIDEX supply chain for the manufacture of certain IRIDEX products.  

"IRIDEX has been a long time provider of proprietary, consumable ophthalmology surgical instruments such as laser EndoProbe® Handpieces and GreenTip cannulas," said Will Moore , President and CEO of IRIDEX. "Part of our growth strategy is to broaden this portfolio of consumable products to meet the growing therapeutic demands of both hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers.  Peregrine is an ideal partner to assist IRIDEX in not only broadening our channel offering and driving costs out of our supply chain, but we anticipate our partnership will also accelerate product development cycles for new disposable products."

"Peregrine Surgical has invested in establishing high quality and efficient manufacturing of surgical instruments," stated Todd Richmond , President of Peregrine Surgical.  Mr. Richmond further stated, "The global reach of IRIDEX will represent a mutually beneficial partnering for the brand names of both companies."

This arrangement involves IRIDEX assuming management of Peregrine Surgical's independent distribution channel in the US and IRIDEX anticipates introducing Peregrine's products to its OUS channels in the near future.  The integration should provide additional coverage and leverage for both company's product lines.
