Peter C. Farrell, Ph.D, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "On a regional basis, revenue in the Americas increased by 18% to $189.9 million over the prior year quarter. Revenues outside the Americas were $159.2 million, an increase of 4% over the prior year's quarter (a 7% increase on a constant currency basis). Our global operating profit for the March quarter was $76.5 million and cash flow from operations was a solid $86.0 million, demonstrating excellent operating performance. During the quarter, we also repurchased 2.3 million shares, at a cost of $67.0 million.
"If we focus on individual products, it is clear that mask growth remains exceptionally strong as demand for our interface offerings remains robust, especially in the Americas. We are also very pleased to see America's flow generator sales return to double digit growth at 14% this quarter, reflecting continued demand for our S9™ line of flow generators, as we roll out the final products on this platform. This is especially the case for the S9 VPAP™ line of products.
"We also just announced the release of our new patient compliance management solution, EasyCare Online. This innovative new tool, which will be used by sleep labs, home medical equipment suppliers and other health care providers, aggregates usage and efficacy data from sleep-disordered breathing patients on CPAP therapy. Simple to use, while saving time and money, EasyCare Online employs a secure, cloud-based system which provides compliance data to give a real point of differentiation for our customers; this will be particularly important in today's compliance-driven environment. Just as importantly, EasyCare Online will optimize patients' therapy and health.
"Finally, recently published peer-reviewed studies have shown a strong correlation between sleep-disordered breathing and childhood behavioral difficulties, as well as changes in heart shape and function. These findings add to a mounting body of clinical data associating various health disorders with undiagnosed SDB and point to the increasing need to make the diagnosis and treatment of SDB a standard of care in the various medical silos where currently the problem is too easily ignored."
