Deepak Chopra, Spacelabs Healthcare's CEO, stated, "We are pleased with the start to the fiscal year with revenues increasing 17% to $56.6 million compared to $48.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2007. The improvement in revenue and operating income is attributable to a pick up in North American patient monitoring sales along with the cost-cutting initiatives that the Company undertook in the previous fiscal year. We will continue to implement and monitor operational improvements throughout the business and expect to extend this positive performance for the remainder of the fiscal year."
