President and CEO CommentaryJoseph Capper, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioTelemetry, commented: "We are extremely pleased that our first quarter as BioTelemetry, Inc. was a successful one. We posted an 18% increase in revenue to $32 million which produced $3.6 million of adjusted EBITDA, up $3.3 million over the third quarter of 2012. These results were largely due to strong volume growth in our patient services segment as a result of the United Healthcare agreement as well as our newly launched MCOT os 2:1 and wireless event products. Also contributing was increased revenue from our research services segment driven by the acquisition of Cardiocore which was acquired a year ago on August 31, 2012. "I am also pleased to announce two significant achievements for the company. The first is an exclusive three year agreement with KPS Select, Inc., to provide ambulatory remote monitoring services to the Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Permanente Medical groups' six million members. The second is the FDA clearance of CardioKey, a new low cost 14-day Holter we plan to launch in the near future in a patch format. We expect this system to substantially reduce the time and cost of processing a long term Holter.
