“2010 has developed into a challenging year for us, with the weak domestic economy and strong U.S. dollar impacting our results more than we had anticipated,” said Mark Sieczkarek, president and chief executive officer of Conceptus. “To proactively address competitive trialing, we have been re-educating physicians on the superior clinical results of the Essure procedure, which has temporarily lessened our focus on physician metrics. Even with these factors, we are projecting overall net sales growth of 9% to 10% for the year, which includes international unit volume growth of 30%.”“We remain optimistic about our long-term growth prospects. Permanent birth control is a multi-billion dollar market with more than one million procedures performed annually in the U.S. alone. The Essure procedure is faster, safer, less expensive and more effective than competing procedures,” said Sieczkarek. “Our team is dedicated to establishing the Essure procedure as the industry’s standard of care.”
