Alex Lukianov, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are very excited to commemorate this milestone for NuVasive. In our first decade as a publicly traded company, we pioneered the lateral approach to spine fusion surgery, developing an idea as a start-up company into a procedurally integrated platform that has transformed major spine surgery into Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS). In 10 years, we also launched more than 90 products, establishing a comprehensive spine portfolio that can achieve better patient outcomes, surgical reproducibility, and significant cost savings. Our achievements thus far have been outstanding, fueled by a high performance culture of Absolute Responsiveness™ and service differentiation. Now, we are focused on our next decade; on proliferating NuVasive's vibrant culture and Speed of Innovation™ by harnessing our Start-up mentality and applying innovation to both our products and all of our business processes. We are keenly focused on our next milestone of $1 billion in revenue in conjunction with increasing profitability. And we intend to paint the world with bright NUVA purple and systematically convert the global market to MIS spine procedures. Onward and Upward!"
