(NASDAQ: AMMD) reported revenue of $140.8 million for the first quarter of 2011, a 4.3 percent increase over sales of $134.9 million in the comparable quarter of 2010. Adjusting revenue for the impact of currency fluctuation and the impact of the Her Option® uterine health product line, which was sold during the first quarter of 2010, results in constant currency revenue growth of 5.4 percent.
Men’s Health sales of $67.4 million in the first quarter represented an increase of 4.5 percent on a reported basis compared to the same quarter last year, and grew 4.3 percent on a constant currency basis, with growth primarily driven by the Male Continence product line. The BPH Therapy business increased 8.3 percent on a reported basis and 7.8 percent on a constant currency basis to $28.1 million for the quarter. BPH Therapy sales were led by continued enthusiasm surrounding the new GreenLight™ XPS console and the MoXy™ Liquid Cooled Fiber. The Women’s Health business increased 6.0 percent on a reported basis and 5.7 percent on a constant currency basis to $45.3 million in the first quarter. The Women’s Health growth is primarily driven by the pelvic floor repair product line which continues to benefit from both the Elevate® anterior and posterior systems.
