Bruce Nudell

Good afternoon everybody. I’m Bruce, and I’m a Medtech Analyst for Credit Suisse. It’s my great pleasure to welcome Hill-Rom to our conference. As you know, they’re infrastructure supplier across the Care Continuum. Mark Guinan is here. And, take it away Mark.

Mark Guinan

Thank you, Bruce, I appreciate it. And thank you all for attending. I’m going – in the next couple of minutes give you a little overview and background on the company. And then, obviously I would appreciate any questions you might have after the presentation.

Before I jump into the presentation, just the usual caveats about forward-looking statements that might be in the next couple of slides and then in some of the things that I share.

Looking at the company, Hill-Rom overview, we are a global leader in medical technology across the Care Continuum. We go from the Acute Setting in the hospital through Post-Acute into extended care and home care facilities. We have patient handling, mobility and environment systems. And we also have a health information technology business as well.

We’re a company that’s been around for a while, 80-year history based headquartered in Batesville, Indiana. And in fiscal 2011, we were approximately $1.6 billion. Great brand recognition in market presence, certainly our customers know the Hill-Rom name, they know what comes with it. And it’s certainly a positive image of quality and innovation. We do generate revenue from capital sales, rental and service. And we have a solid international footprint with revenue sources in over a 100 countries around the world today.
