- Sales increased 3% over the second quarter of 2012 to a record $171.3 million, including 6% constant currency organic growth.
- Cardiac/neuromodulation revenue increased 5% driven by stronger market performance and continued deepening relations with OEM partners.
- Orthopaedic revenue decreased 2% over the prior year but grew organically by 14% due to implant market share gains and new customer wins, after adjusting for the divestiture of certain non-core product lines in Switzerland at the beginning of 2013.
- Portable medical revenues increased 9% for the quarter reflecting the ongoing impact of products introduced in 2012.
- GAAP Operating Income of $17.1 million increased $6.0 million or 54% in the quarter.
- Gross margins improved 220 basis points to 33.4% driven by plant productivity, the completion of the Swiss orthopaedic facility consolidation and mix of product sales.

- Gross profit improvement and operational efficiencies flowed through to adjusted operating income.
