The company's practice is to provide guidance on a full year basis only.This forecast reflects Mindray's current and preliminary views, which aresubject to change.
"Based on what we continue to see from a world economy and hospitalspending perspective, we are maintaining our guidance for the year," commentedMr. Li Xiting, Mindray's president and co-chief executive officer. "Weexperienced excellent growth in China through the first half of the year andexpect that to continue, as we look forward to the government continuing withits strong spending in the second half of 2009. China still represents ourbest growth prospect this year. International growth is mixed, with Africa,Asia and the Middle East performing well; distributor funding and hospitalspending issues, however, continue to affect our other regions. Notsurprisingly, the U.S. hospital market remains difficult to predict, ascapital spending remains constrained and healthcare reform has yet to beestablished. That said, we remain firm in our belief that Mindray's uniquevertically integrated business model, excellent financial position and focuson core competencies within each region, provide us with key advantages inthese fast-changing markets."
