Over the remainder of the year we plan to continue our efforts to build value for shareholders by focusing on our four key themes for 1998: (1) Building our direct urology business via adding new hospital products into commercial distribution -- including the commercial launches of our BEACON Technology System, AlloSling, and CaverMap Surgical Aid product lines, as well as the future commercial launch of our Iodine-125 prostate cancer brachytherapy seed product line; (2) Partnering our product lines in certain areas where we can leverage existing channels of distribution.
