Bio-Reference Laboratories' CEO Discusses Q3 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Additional discussion of these and other factors affecting the company's business and prospects is contained in the company's periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

I will now turn the call over to Dr. Marc Grodman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Marc Grodman

Delores, thank you very, very much. This past quarter, we posted strong consistent results in terms of virtually every financial metric possible. I believe it's important to spend some time today to put our performance in perspective. Before that, as usual I would like Sam Singer, our CFO to review our results, and then I would like add some additional comments and color following his comments. Sam?

Sam Singer
