("Greenlander"). The terms of the agreement were not disclosed as the transaction is non-material to Mindray's financial statements.

Founded in 2003 and based in Hangzhou, China, Greenlander is a healthcare IT solutions provider that specializes in PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) and RIS (Radiology Information System). PACS is a medical imaging technology that provides economical storage of and convenient access to images from multiple modalities.

The RIS system generally consists of patient tracking and scheduling, result reporting and image tracking capabilities, and is critical to the efficient workflow of radiology practices. The PACS and RIS systems are widely used in the radiology, ultrasound, endoscopy and pathology departments of hospitals as effective digital picture archiving and communication management solutions. Last year, the PACS and RIS market was estimated at approximately $142 million in China and was expected to grow at over 20% annually for the next three to five years. Internationally, the market was estimated at $3.46 billion in 2009 and was expected to grow 10% annually.

Through this transaction, Mindray aims to create synergies by combining its reputable brand and strong sales, service and engineering platforms with Greenlander's technology and expertise in healthcare IT solutions.

Healthcare IT is attracting significant private and public healthcare spending and we believe the market for products and services in this area is very promising.
