“To strengthen our market presence, we plan to open new Customer Experience Centers in China. These centers will give our potential customers an opportunity to experience our products first-hand in an environment that is similar to the environment in which they will use the products, whether that is a home or healthcare facility. We anticipate using a portion of the net proceeds of the IPO to expand our marketing efforts in order to continue to grow our revenues in China and internationally.

“In the near term we will be introducing new products to the market which we plan to promote through a variety of advertising methods.”
