Dehaier Medical Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: DHRM) ("Dehaier" or the "Company"), an emerging leader in the development, assembly, marketing and sale of medical devices and homecare medical products in China, today announced that it has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Timesco of London Ltd., one of the most progressive surgical and medical companies in the U.K.
Under the terms of this three-year agreement Dehaier will be the exclusive distributor in mainland China for Timesco's entire laryngoscope Optima series of products, which include the CXL and Eclispse series. The presidents of both companies signed the agreement at the 67th China International Medical Equipment Fair in Shenzhen.
A laryngoscope is a viewing instrument that is used for tracheal intubations. The laryngoscope Optima series products offer a broad visual field and better vision for physicians due to its patented light source, while also addressing a variety of clinical demands through a diverse set of models and specifications. The agreement represents a benchmark for Dehaier as a leading distributor in China's laryngoscope market, while also providing a new product channel for the Company to offer its customers across China and ultimately strengthen its market share and increase revenue.
Dehaier's President and CEO, Mr. Ping Chen, commented, "Dehaier has maintained a long-term and reliable partnership with Timesco since 2003; we are currently taking as leading distributor in the laryngoscope market in China. We are glad that Timesco has expressed their appreciation of our product sales and market influence. Dehaier secured our competitive position through a strong and geographically diverse distribution network. We anticipate a comprehensive cooperation with Timesco, and believe this will help enhance our corporate reputation and ultimately agreements such as this will return value for our shareholders."
