Item 3.02. Unregistered Sale of Equity Securities.

On May 10, 2005, we acquired all of the shares of outstanding capital stock of Impella CardioSystems AG. The share purchase agreement provides that we may potentially make additional payments based on milestones related to unit sales and FDA approval of our Impella products. The milestone related to unit sales was previously achieved. One of the milestones relates to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of our Impella 2.5 device.

In our Report on Form 8-K filed on June 2, 2008 we disclosed that we received FDA 510(k) clearance of our Impella 2.5 device. As a result, we became obligated to make a payment to the former shareholders of Impella CardioSystems AG in the amount of $5,583,333. Under the terms of the share purchase agreement, we can satisfy this payment in the form of cash, or stock or a combination of cash and stock.

As permitted by the share purchase agreement, on June 30, 2008 we elected to make this milestone payment in shares of our common stock. As a result, we are issuing approximately 343,632 shares of our common stock to the former Impella shareholders. We are issuing the shares in reliance on the exemptions from registration available under Regulation S and Rule 506 of Regulation D. We are obligated to register the shares on Form S-3 pursuant to the terms of the registration rights agreement we entered into at the time of the acquisition.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
