Competition

The lithotripsy services market is highly fragmented and competitive. We compete with other companies, private facilities and medical centers that offer lithotripsy machines and services, including smaller regional and local lithotripsy service providers. Certain of our current and potential competitors have substantial financial resources and may compete with us for acquisitions and development of operations in markets targeted by us. Additionally, while we believe that lithotripsy has emerged as the superior treatment for kidney stone disease, we also compete with hospitals, clinics and individual medical practitioners that offer alternative treatments for kidney stones.

In Medical Device Sales and Services, we also compete with other manufacturers of minimally invasive medical devices in our markets. The primary competitors include Dornier MedTech GmbH, Siemens AG, Storz Medical, Richard Wolf GmbH and Direx.

In our specialty vehicle manufacturing segment, we compete with national, regional and local designers and manufacturers of trailers and coaches for transporting medical devices and mobile equipment designed for mobile command and control centers and equipment for the media and broadcast industry.
