Quoting Management: “We were pleased with our fourth quarter revenue performance, particularly in the U.S., where we saw improving trends in our ophthalmic sales of both new and base business products. Commercialization of the VersaVITâ„¢ system remains on-track as we continue to establish a solid installed base. Fourth quarter results also benefitted from strong demand from our OEM partners,” said David M. Hable, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our international results were softer than anticipated, driven by ongoing weakness in our base business and lower contributions from emerging markets compared to last year. The recent acquisition of our U.K. distribution partner, M.I.S.S. Ophthalmics, contributed modestly to international revenues in the period, and we look forward to incremental contributions in fiscal 2014.”
