Highlight of Business Operations:

(i) atypical demand in the prior year periods for higher margin face masks and other healthcare disposables products as a result of the elevated level of reported cases of the novel H1N1 flu (swine flu), which contributed approximately $800,000 and $495,000 in incremental gross profit and net income, respectively, or $0.03 in earnings per share, for the three months ended January 31, 2010 and approximately $3,400,000 and $2,135,000 in incremental gross profit and net income, respectively, or $0.13 in earnings per share, for the six months ended January 31, 2010, and

General and administrative expenses increased by $1,034,000 to $10,306,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2011, from $9,272,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2010, primarily due to increases of (i) approximately $640,000 in compensation expense relating to annual salary raises, additional administrative personnel, employee benefit costs and incentive compensation including stock-based compensation expense, (ii) $165,000 in outside professional fees and (iii) $112,000 in amortization expense of intangible assets primarily relating to our acquisitions of Gambro Water and Purity.

General and administrative expenses increased by $847,000 to $19,424,000 for the six months ended January 31, 2011, from $18,577,000 for the six months ended January 31, 2010, primarily due to increases of (i) approximately $240,000 in Gambro Water acquisition-related costs including certain outside professional fees, (ii) approximately $278,000 in compensation expense and (iii) $153,000 in amortization expense of intangible assets primarily related to our acquisitions of Gambro Water and Purity.

Research and development expenses (which include continuing engineering costs) increased by $278,000 to $1,435,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2011, from $1,157,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2010.

These increases were due to increasing our investment in a senior subordinated convertible promissory note issued by BIOSAFE, Inc. (BIOSAFE) during the prior year, as more fully described elsewhere in this MD&A.
