President and CEO CommentaryJoseph Capper, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioTelemetry, commented: "2013 was an outstanding and transformational year for BioTelemetry. We posted strong year over year top line growth while continuing to drive down operating expenses. Patient volume hit a record high, growing 7% year over year and generating a $7 million increase in patient revenue. The patient volume growth stemmed from the ongoing success of the CardioNet Comprehensive sales initiative, the addition of several new payor contracts and the growing market acceptance of the MCOT os 2:1 and wEvent devices. The increased patient revenue, in combination with the full year impact of the Cardiocore acquisition, resulted in total revenue of $130 million, a 16% increase versus the prior year. Furthermore, while driving strong top line growth, we remained focused on improving and streamlining our operations. As a result, we achieved adjusted EBITDA of $17 million for the year, our highest EBITDA since 2008. "In addition to our financial and operational successes, we are also excited by our recent patent litigation victory, which ultimately culminated in the acquisition of Mednet Healthcare Technologies, Inc. While the acquisition did not impact our 2013 results, we expect it to be accretive, adding $4 to $5 million in EBITDA on an annualized basis. We are looking forward to welcoming Mednet's customers and employees to our team.
