Revenues for the six-month period ended June 30, 2014 were a record $248.1 million, compared with $213.8 million for the corresponding period in 2013, an increase of 16%.

Merit's non-GAAP net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was $6.4 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to $6.3 million, or $0.15 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

"We believe the plan for product and sales force focus is clearly working, and we anticipate continued growth going forward," said Fred P. Lampropoulos, Merit's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "Although we have incurred some short-term expenses associated with the splitting of our U.S. sales force, thus far we have exceeded our initial sales estimates and we are optimistic that this trend will continue into the future as the subsidies expire. We believe these efforts will allow us to sell deeper into our product offering, provide better in-service and training opportunities, and build our overall branding efforts."
