Forward-Looking Statements

This document and its attachments include "forward-looking statements" intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

"predict," "project," "might," "intend," "potential," "could," "would," "should," "optimistic," "seek," "continue," "pursue," or "our future success depends," or the negative or other variations thereof or comparable terminology, are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.

Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or results and involve risks and uncertainties that cannot be predicted or quantified and, consequently, the actual performance or results of the Company may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.  Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the factors described from time to time in the Company's reports filed with the SEC, including the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2010, Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended February 28, 2011, financial community and rating agency perceptions of the Company; the effects of economic, credit and capital market conditions on the economy in general, and on medical device companies in particular; domestic and foreign health care reforms and governmental laws and regulations; third-party relations and approvals, technological advances and patents attained by competitors; and challenges inherent in new product development, including obtaining regulatory approvals.  In addition to the matters described above, the ability of the Company to develop its products, future actions by the FDA or other regulatory agencies, results of pending or future clinical trials, the outcome of pending litigation, overall economic conditions, general market conditions, market acceptance, foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, and the effects on pricing from group purchasing organizations and competition and the ability of the Company to integrate purchased businesses, may affect the actual results achieved by the Company.

Any forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and, as such, speak only as of the date made.
