D. Medical Industries Ltd. Initiates Restructuring, Including Contemplated Staff Reduction
Published: Sep 08, 2011
D. Medical is in the early stages of executing its low risk and low cost strategy of introducing and promoting the "Spring" brand name in the United States and Canada and Europe - initially via the commercial roll out of its Spring™ Universal Infusion Sets. At the same time, the Company continues to work toward completing the preparations needed to begin implementing its commercial strategy for the developing world.
"Our goal is to generate meaningful revenues and reach positive margins as quickly as possible. Based on the early interest shown by patients, doctors and Diabetes educators in our breakthrough Spring™ Universal Infusion Set product, we believe that we are on the right track. Indeed, in order to ensure that we will continue to have sufficient supply to fulfill anticipated demand, we are now working towards quadrupling capacity at UPG's site in China by the end of the year. Nevertheless, in the current stock market environment, we need to be proactive to help ensure that we have sufficient capital to continue to execute on our full business plan. We have taken this step to reduce spending and accelerate our path to cash-flow break even," said Efri Argaman, D. Medical's Chief Executive Officer.
