LeMaitre Vascular To Sell Directly To Swiss Hospitals

BURLINGTON, Mass., Oct. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LeMaitre Vascular, Inc. (Nasdaq:LMAT), a provider of peripheral vascular devices and implants, announced today that it will begin direct sales in Switzerland in December 2012. LeMaitre Vascular currently sells its products in Switzerland through an independent distributor, which has agreed to terminate its distribution rights and provide detailed customer and sales information and other transition services. In 2011 LeMaitre Vascular sold $0.3mm of products to this distributor. LeMaitre Vascular plans to hire two Swiss sales representatives. 

"Going direct in Switzerland is a natural next move for LeMaitre Vascular. Since we began converting to our direct-to-hospital model in 1998, we have gone direct in most major European markets. Switzerland has special appeal due to its solid economy and its proximity to our International Headquarters in Frankfurt. Our distributor had focused on just a few of our product lines, and this move will allow us to sell all of our 13 product lines into this 8 million person country," said Peter Gebauer, President of International Operations.

LeMaitre Vascular currently employs its own direct sales force in 13 countries:

1.    United States 2.    Canada 3.    Japan 4.    Germany 5.    Italy 6.    The United Kingdom 7.    France 8.    Spain 9.    The Netherlands 10.  Sweden 11.  Denmark 12.  Austria 13.  Belgium
