Across all product areas International product sales increased $0.3 million, or 1.3 percent in the third quarter of 2012 as compared to the same quarter of 2011. Had the same foreign currency rates been in effect in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 as were in effect in the third quarter in 2011, the U.S. dollar reported value of product sales would have been higher by $1.4 million for this quarter.Management believes percentage sales growth in constant currency is an important metric for evaluating our operations because the impact of changing foreign currency exchange rates may not provide an accurate baseline for analyzing trends in our business. Percentage sales growth in constant currency is calculated by translating current year sales at prior year average foreign currency exchange rates. Constant currency is a non-GAAP measure and it should not be considered as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
