SHENZHEN, China, Aug. 9 Mindray MedicalInternational Limited (NYSE: MR), a leading developer, manufacturer andmarketer of medical devices worldwide announced today its selected unauditedfinancial results for the second quarter and first half ended June 30, 2010.
"We are happy to report a 12.0% year-over-year increase in revenues,driven primarily by this quarter's accelerated international sales growth of27.0%," commented Xu Hang, Mindray's chairman and co-chief executive officer."We are particularly encouraged by the accelerated growth we have seen in bothemerging and developed markets. Both Latin America and the CIS region ledgrowth among all regions while Western Europe and the U.S. recordeddouble-digit growth. In China, non-tender sales also continued to expand,growing 19.0% sequentially and 9.1% year-over-year. Government tenderactivities, however, unexpectedly continued to decline and as a result, ourtotal China sales decreased 4.6% year-over-year but grew 16.5% as compared tothe first quarter this year. While we cannot control the timing associatedwith tender sales, we are realigning our sales force and undertaking otherstrategic initiatives in product development and marketing, allowing us tofocus more intensely on our higher end product lines for the non-tender market.We also remain committed to our investment in international channels and thelocalization efforts of our on-site operations. We believe this approachshould position Mindray well to continue its strong performance in emergingmarkets and benefit from new opportunities in both high-end product segmentsand developed markets."

"While we achieved better than expected international sales,lower-than-expected government spending in our domestic market for the firsthalf of the year has limited our planned growth rate and therefore our plannedprofit for the year," said Li Xiting, Mindray's president and co-chiefexecutive officer. "We have thus decided to lower our yearly guidance. Thisadjustment, however, does not impact our confidence in our long-term outlookfor China. We remain confident about the growth of the private sector in Chinaand the resultant non-tender sales, as well as the government's commitment toits healthcare reform plan and we are proactively addressing the areas of thebusiness and factors that are within our control. Equally, if not moreimportant, we will implement strategic initiatives more aggressively acrossproduct development, sales force organization, branding and marketing in thecoming quarters to expand in the fast growing hospital self-funded segment. Weexpect that these initiatives, together with realignment of our internationalsales network, will ensure China and international sales remain parallelgrowth drivers for the company."
