  • Compumedics signs new AUD 1.0 million (USD 0.7 million) three-year distribution contract for its sleep diagnostic and monitoring systems with existing Shanghai-based distributor
  • Contract covers provinces in and around Shanghai and complements Compumedics’ distribution agreement for its sleep and neurological diagnostics systems in other provinces of China
  • Locks in at least 10% growth per annum, over the three-year contract period
    New contract re-enforces Compumedics strategy to expand its core business in major global medical device markets
  • Compumedics continues to be the Number One premium supplier of sleep diagnostics and neurological research systems in China

Compumedics Limited (ASX: CMP) (“Compumedics” and “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has secured a new three-year contract for the distribution of Compumedics’ sleep diagnostic and monitoring systems across provinces in and around Shanghai with one of its long-term distribution partners in China, ZhiNuo.

This contract is complementary to Compumedics’ arrangements for the distribution of its sleep and neurological monitoring range in other provinces in China, which the Company announced on 15 June 2015.

In commenting on Compumedics’ market growth in China, Dr David Burton, Chairman and CEO of Compumedics, said:

“Compumedics has spent more than a decade, with our Chinese partners, building a foundation for future growth in one of the worlds most challenging but highest growth markets. Compumedics is now the number one premium supplier of sleep diagnostic and neurological research systems in China.

“As a result, Compumedics is well positioned to capture growth, not only in sleep diagnostics, but also in neurological monitoring, a relatively new and untapped market for the Company in China and other parts of Asia.

“With only approximately 2,000 beds dedicated to sleep diagnosis country-wide, China continues to be a latent and high growth opportunity for sleep diagnostics, and Compumedics will continue to deliver significant growth in this key market over the next three years.”

The Company is pleased this new contract builds strongly on a long and very successful relationship by continuing to deliver significant growth in this key market over the next three years.
