Peter C. Farrell Ph.D, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 we showed strong year-over-year growth on the top and bottom line and both our flow generator and mask categories did well. Revenue in Americas increased by 13% to $207.4 million over the prior year's quarter. Revenue outside Americas increased by 3% to $164.5 million over the prior year's quarter, or a 13% increase on a constant currency basis. Operating profit for the June quarter was $89.7 million and cash flow from operations was a robust $97.0 million, demonstrating excellent operating performance.

"The peer-reviewed literature continues to make it abundantly clear that untreated sleep-disordered breathing is, at best, seriously debilitating and, at worst, life-threatening. At the May Annual Meeting of the American Thoracic Society it was reported, by researchers from the University of Wisconsin, that individuals with untreated sleep apnea have a higher risk of dying from cancer and the risk was correlated with the severity of the disease. And, at the same meeting, it was also reported that untreated obstructive sleep apnea was independently correlated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, a debilitating disease which causes severe pain in the hands and feet. Also, at this year's Annual Endocrine Society meeting held in June, obstructive sleep apnea was found to be a frequent co-morbidity with polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal disorder which affects up to 10% of women of child-bearing age. In addition, in the June 2012 issue of the European Heart Journal it was reported that any level of abnormal sleep-disordered breathing was associated with poor prognosis in chronic heart failure and that treatment of the sleep-disordered breathing with nocturnal ventilation significantly improved outcomes. Finally, in the July 2012 issue of the Journal of Cardiac Failure a study demonstrated the direct connection between untreated central sleep apnea and heart failure re-admission to hospital. These findings add to the continually mounting evidence connecting serious health disorders to untreated sleep-disordered breathing and point to the necessity of making the diagnosis and treatment of sleep-disordered breathing a standard of care in medical practice. In short, testing for sleep-disordered breathing should be as common as having one's blood pressure taken."
