First Quarter 2014 Results
Raymond V. Damadian, M.D., president and chairman of Fonar Corporation, said: "We had understood that the acquisition of HDM would be a significant source of profitability. This has been the case and the Company's diluted earnings per share available for the common stockholder for the 1st quarter of Fiscal 2014 increased 68% to $0.37 when compared to one year earlier.
"There are more reasons why this acquisition makes a lot of sense," continued Dr. Damadian. "By combining the resources of HMCA and HDM, we will enjoy the benefits of economies of scale, shared administrative and technical expertise and capabilities, and joint marketing strategies. HMCA's 11 STAND-UP® MRIs together with HDM's 12 form a network of 23 FONAR weight-bearing MRI scanners, the largest in the world as compared to the conventional essentially weightless MRI.* Of course, we're not finished growing," said Dr. Damadian. "We will continue to pursue additional management contracts, primarily in New York and Florida."
"Our successful business model is made possible by the success of our current MRI scanner, the UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI," continued Dr. Damadian. "This scanner is extremely popular with patients who experience claustrophobia or can't lie down for long periods. However, patient comfort is only one side of this product. The much more compelling reason a patient would want to be scanned is to get the right diagnosis. This is the world's only scanner that can scan all body parts in their normal weight-bearing posture. It is essential to visualize the body in its normal weight-bearing positions in order to accurately diagnose the source of the patient's pain, so that the optimum treatment for the patient can be prescribed. In the weightless posture of the conventional recumbent MRI, it is impossible to accurately assess the patients' weight-bearing anatomic pathologies so they can be correctly treated. It is self-evident that if you can't see them you can't treat them. It is very common with the UPRIGHT® weight-bearing MRI to encounter disc herniations and spinal dislocations that were not visible in the conventional "weightless" recumbent MRI position.*"
"The Company is fortunate to have as its flagship product the FONAR UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI," continued Dr. Damadian. "This is truly a unique technology producing exquisite images in all positions of the body. It not only yields a whole new treasure of new medical applications in such calamitous medical categories as multiple sclerosis, and other dementia, but it also possesses the strong potential to provide fresh new insights into the debilitating chronic consequences of sports injuries, the current epidemic of automobile whiplash injuries, all spine injuries, and more diseases yet to be unearthed."
