Good morning and welcome to the 37
th Annual DB Healthcare Conference. My name is [Robert Karofsky] and I’m with the MedTech team here at DB. Kicking things off this morning we have OraSure Technologies. With us we have CEO, Doug Michels; and CFO, Ron Spair.
Douglas A. Michels
Good morning, everybody, and special thanks to Deutsche Bank for inviting us to speak to you today and to attend this year’s conference. As Rob mentioned, Ron Spair is here with me. Ron is our Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer and given that today we’re going to be spending a shorter amount of time with the presentation and more time with questions, got to be a great opportunity to have Ron up here taking difficult questions that you might ask.
Before we begin, let me remind you that through this morning’s presentation, we will be talking about the futures forward-looking statements and obviously whenever you are talking about the future, there is uncertainty and so we ask you to refer to the company’s SEC filings 10-K and 10-Q for a more complete description of those factors that might impact future results.
I’m going to start out this morning like I usually do with just a couple of comments on the investment rationale for OraSure Technologies. As many of know, OraSure is an industry leader in the point-of-care, infectious disease and biological sample collection space. Our base products today address in excess of a $600 million global market and we are less than 20% penetrated. So we believe that with our traditional products, we still have quite a bit of room to continue growing this very fine business.
