Quoting Management: Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron, commented, “In the PAD segment, revenue was down 5%, while in the EBU segment we achieved another quarter of record revenue. Although the basic demand for our products and technologies on a global basis remains strong, we have some areas in which we are implementing new strategies to drive growth and profitability. On the revenue side, we saw moderate PAD segment growth in all geographies except for EMEA and Japan, which were impacted by macroeconomic conditions. There continues to be strong interest in our recently launched products, including at several major industry conferences during the quarter. We remain on track with our UltraShape U.S. clinical trial and recently introduced several enhancements to our body shaping product portfolio. We have begun making strategic additions to our U.S. sales team to target the gradually recovering economy, including the non-core market, along with selective resource reallocations within our global team to focus on high demand geographies. This will support operating margin expansion as we grow revenue and further optimize our operating infrastructure.”
