Jon Sigurdsson, President & CEO, comments: 
“We are quite satisfied with the results for the quarter and the first nine months of the year. We have managed to increase the profitability of our business handsomely, despite the fact that sales growth has been slower than anticipated. In the past two years we have focused on integration and to build a strong player in the field of non-invasive orthopaedics. Today Ossur has a diverse revenue base, well balanced between Europe and the United States and strong balance sheets with a 43% equity ratio. We do not expect the financial crisis in the world today to have significant impact on Ossur’s operations as Ossur operates within the health care sector. Overall, we are confident that we have managed to build a strong Company with a solid foundation for future growth.”
