President and CEO Commentary
Joseph Capper, President and Chief Executive Officer of CardioNet, commented: “Our fourth quarter 2010 operations ended strong with a sequential increase in MCOT TM volume and revenues, which increased to $29 million compared to $27 million in the third quarter 2010. Additionally, we experienced an increase in cash collections in the fourth quarter 2010, resulting from the successful completion of a prepayment review of the Company’s Medicare claims. This enabled us to end the year with a strong cash and investment position of $45 million despite the outlay of approximately $10 million of cash used to acquire Biotel. This also had a positive effect on our DSO, which on a quarter-end basis, decreased 47 days from 125 days for the third quarter 2010 to 78 days at year end.“Looking back on 2010, it was a pivotal year for CardioNet, marked by several key accomplishments for the Company including: the establishment of a national Medicare reimbursement rate, the realization of $15 million in cost reductions, the completion of the Biotel acquisition and the strengthening of the management team with several key hires. These achievements provide a foundation from which we can grow the Company and further strengthen our position as the world leader in wireless medicine.
