CEO Comments

“Overall, 2011 was a very successful year for Greatbatch,” stated Thomas J. Hook, President & CEO, Greatbatch, Inc. “Our diversified revenue base increased 7% for the year, which included significant growth from our Vascular Access, Orthopaedic and Electrochem product lines, and was achieved despite a contracting CRM market. This sales growth, combined with our strong cash generation and debt reduction, drove an 11% increase in adjusted diluted EPS for the year and continued to fund our medical device initiatives. During 2011, we continued to make significant progress on the development of these devices, and saw the first returns on our investments. Additionally, during 2011 we were able to close on the strategic acquisition of Micro Power Electronics, which provides us with a leadership position within the portable medical market and further diversifies our revenue base. Going forward, we are well positioned to accelerate our growth, as we gain market share in our non-CRM markets, commercialize our medical device projects and benefit from potential acquisitions.”
