The company's practice is to provide guidance on a full year basis only. This forecast reflects Mindray's current and preliminary views, which are subject to change.

"Looking ahead, China will remain the primary engine for our growth this year, due to our strong competitive position in the domestic market and favourable spending environment on healthcare. As for emerging markets, the prospects, albeit favourable overall, are somewhat overshadowed by potential political instability and currency risks in some regions," said Li Xiting, Mindray's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We anticipate that the developed markets[3] will remain challenging this year because of lingering uncertainties over their economies or hospital spending. But our strategy of offering great products at reasonable prices will continue to serve us well in all markets. We will work on strengthening our research and development and pursuing suitable M&A opportunities in order to drive long-term growth for Mindray."
