Commenting on Misonix's financial and operating results, Michael A. McManus Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased at the growth of our revenues and continued trends in gross margins particularly with respect to our core medical device products. We continue to reduce G&A expenses, having made additional progress this quarter. We will continue to manage our administrative expenses prudently, while supporting investments in product development and sales and marketing. In late October, we announced the sale of our Laboratory and Forensic Safety Products business. This sale of a non-core business completes our strategy to focus exclusively on medical device products and enabled us to strengthen our balance sheet with an additional $1.5 million and an opportunity to receive an additional $500,000 in total over the next three years. Our plan is to use the proceeds to continue to invest in sales and marketing efforts in our medical device business.
"We remain committed to our strategic vision and belief that increased medical device sales through our proprietary sales channels, our emphasis on high margin disposables, a broader geographic reach and development of new surgical applications and technology will strengthen and grow the Company over time."
