During the third quarter of 2013, the company shipped approximately 44,000 SET pulse oximetry and rainbow Pulse CO-Oximetry units, excluding handheld units, up 33% compared to approximately 33,100 in the same prior-year period. Masimo estimates its worldwide installed base as of September 28, 2013 to be 1,180,000 units, up 12% from 1,056,000 units as of September 29, 2012.

Joe Kiani, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Masimo, said, "Masimo's ability to innovate technology that improves care, increases patient safety and lowers overall healthcare costs is the key success factor driving our strong third quarter results. As evidenced by our strong quarterly pulse oximetry and Pulse CO-Oximetry shipments, we are consistently expanding our customer base and, as a result, we are optimistic about our future."

As of September 28, 2013, Masimo's cash and cash equivalents were $91.7 million, compared to $71.6 million as of December 29, 2012.

About Masimo
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is the global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies that significantly improve patient care -- helping solve "unsolvable" problems. In 1995, the company debuted Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, known as Masimo SET®, which virtually eliminated false alarms and increased pulse oximetry's ability to detect life-threatening events. More than 100 independent and objective studies have shown that Masimo SET® outperforms other pulse oximetry technologies, even under the most challenging clinical conditions, including patient motion and low peripheral perfusion. In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow SET® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously required invasive procedures, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), and Pleth Variability Index (PVI®), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI). In 2008, Masimo introduced Patient SafetyNet™, a remote monitoring and wireless clinician notification system designed to help hospitals avoid preventable deaths and injuries associated with failure to rescue events. In 2009, Masimo introduced rainbow® Acoustic Monitoring™, the first-ever noninvasive and continuous monitoring of acoustic respiration rate (RRa™). Masimo's rainbow® SET® technology platform offers a breakthrough in patient safety by helping clinicians detect life-threatening conditions and helping guide treatment options. In 2010, Masimo acquired SEDLine®, a pioneer in the development of innovative brain function monitoring technology and devices. And in 2012, Masimo acquired the assets of Spire Semiconductor, LLC, a maker of advanced light emitting diode (LED) and other advanced component-level technologies; and PHASEIN AB, a developer and manufacturer of ultra-compact mainstream and sidestream capnography, multigas analyzers, and handheld capnometry solutions. Masimo SET® and Masimo rainbow® SET® technologies also can be found in over 100 multiparameter patient monitors from over 50 medical device manufacturers around the world. Founded in 1989, Masimo has the mission of "Improving Patient Outcome and Reducing Cost of Care ... by Taking Noninvasive Monitoring to New Sites and Applications®."
