Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (Nasdaq: HOLX), a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostics, medical imaging systems and surgical products dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of women, today announced the opening of its new Asia Pacific regional offices and the Hologic Asia Pacific Center for Health Sciences Education in Hong Kong. Sales, product support, training, R&D, logistics, health sciences education, and service for Hologic's breast health, diagnostics, GYN surgical, and skeletal health businesses for the Asia Pacific market will be coordinated from the new facility. Company officials joined country and local leaders, customers and medical luminaries for an opening ceremony at the new facility dedication in the Hong Kong Science Park.

Commenting on the new facility, Jack Cumming, Hologic chairman and chief executive officer said, "This new regional headquarters is another step in our drive to leverage complementary, best-in-class products and technologies to better meet local market needs while driving enhanced growth and value creation for Hologic, our dealers and their customers. With this new facility, we can now offer, in one location, training and educational programs for doctors, radiologists, cytologists, technologists, and application and service support personnel for all our product lines. The investment in Asia is another positive step in Hologic's strategic initiative to expand its international footprint with future plans for regional centers in India and South America."

Paul Young, managing director of Hologic's Asia Pacific region noted, "The Hong Kong facility is complementary to similar Hologic facilities in Boston, Massachusetts, Brussels, Belgium, and London, U.K., and another important step in the process of building regional centers to better serve local needs in all regions of the world."

"The dedication of the sales, service and support associates of Hologic is a key reason for the Company's success," Mr. Cumming noted. "The associates working from the new Hong Kong headquarters are part of a network of more than 4,000 Hologic team members who have come together to redefine what is possible. They work on healthcare initiatives that save lives. Their shared goal is to have each Hologic product be best in class, offering more health, more life, and more hope for more women."
