Volcano Announces It Will End Distribution Agreement with Fukuda; Transition Enhances Company's Direct Selling Program in Japan
Date:9/21/2010

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Volcano Corporation (Nasdaq: VOLC), a leading developer and manufacturer of precision intravascular therapy guidance tools designed to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of coronary and peripheral vascular disease, said today it has reached an agreement with Fukuda Desnhi Co., Ltd. to end its distribution agreement in Japan.

Upon completion of the Fukuda transition, we will be directly addressing nearly 95 percent of our total revenues in Japan, where we have a direct sales force of more than 50 and a total work force of more than 100," said Scott Huennekens, president and chief executive officer of Volcano.

"As was the case with the Goodman transition, we expect this transaction to benefit us in several ways. We will receive direct pricing, which is currently approximately 30 percent higher than distributor pricing, as well as potentially realize increased gross margin and operating income on these revenues.
