Good morning. I’m Kim Gailun with the J.P. Morgan med tech team. And presenting next, we have Endologix. So, without any further ado, it’s my pleasure to introduce CEO, John McDermott.

John McDermott

Thanks, Kim. Good morning. Okay. So, Endologix, medical device manufacturer, located in Irvine, California. Here is our Safe Harbor disclosures. Just briefly, to kind of kick us off at a high level, we are competing in a large and growing market. I’ll walk you through all of the dynamics of that and how we plan to accelerate that growth. The company has grown very nicely over the last several years with significant number of continued growth drivers, which I’ll also touch on through the course of the presentation, as well as you can see we’ve had strong growth and expect to continue that over the next several years.

This is what we do. We treat abdominal aortic aneurysms. The picture over on the right shows the traditional or historical approach, which is open repair. And what’s evolved over the last several years is more of an endovascular approach or what we call EVAR, which is a catheter-based therapy, whereby devices inserted through a small incision in the patient’s groin and a device is guided up to in place and deployed, which basically relines the aorta from the inside out, therefore shunting the blood off of the fragile aneurysm and preventing a rupture, which is a fail.
