We chose Swissray because of our excellent history with the Company, having two of their Direct Digital Systems in place here at The Children's Hospital. Not only have we been able to improve our productivity with the use of these two digital systems, but have found that the Company has made service satisfaction a priority.

With the exception of a few foreign issuers, the companies quoted in the Pink Sheets tend to be closely held, extremely small and/or thinly traded. Most do not meet the minimum listing requirements for trading on a national securities exchange, such as the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ Stock Market. Many of these companies (including Swissray) do not file periodic reports or audited financial statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission, making it very difficult for investors to find reliable, unbiased information about those companies.
