CASMED Sells Neonatal Intensive Care Disposables Product Line

BRANFORD, Conn., March 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CAS Medical Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CASM) (CASMED), a leader in medical devices for non-invasive patient monitoring, announces the sale of assets related to its neonatal intensive care disposables product line to Trinity Medical Devices Inc. The sale is in the amount of $3.35 million, subject to certain inventory adjustments, with up to $400,000 of additional proceeds if certain sales targets are reached within the next 12 months. The product-line sale provides additional working capital for the Company’s investments in its core business, the FORE-SIGHT® cerebral oximetry products.

The neonatal product line includes the Klear-Trace® electrodes and NEOGUARD® disposable temperature probes, reflectors, and arm boards.

“The sale of this legacy product line allows us to tighten further our strategic focus on our FORE-SIGHT cerebral oximetry business where we see opportunities for continued market penetration and growth,” remarked Thomas M. Patton, President and Chief Executive Officer of CASMED.

Under the agreement, CASMED will provide certain transition services as necessary, including manufacturing and customer service, to ensure that all customer needs will be satisfied without interruption while operations are transitioned to Trinity Medical Devices.

“We are excited about the addition of the neonatal disposables product line and look forward to building relationships with our new customers,” said John Easom, Chief Executive Officer of Trinity Medical Devices. “With the highly regarded Klear-Trace and NeoGuard brands, the neonatal product line has great potential to fulfill the needs of an expanded range of customers and fits nicely within our product portfolio.”

Trinity Medical Devices is a consumable medical products company specializing in delivering high-quality commodity products to the global market.

CASMED will reclassify the results of the neonatal product line to discontinued operations effective with the quarter ending March 31, 2016. Sales of the divested neonatal disposables products were $2.1 million for each of calendar years 2015 and 2014.
