Highlight of Business Operations:

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, on July 15, 2011 Purchaser commenced a tender offer (the “Offer”) to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock, $0.10 par value per share, of the Company (the “Shares”) at a purchase price of $27.00 per share, in cash (the “Offer Price”), without interest thereon and less any applicable withholding taxes. Immediately following the consummation of the Offer and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Purchaser will merge with and into the Company (the “Merger”) and the Company will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. The Merger Agreement also provides that the Merger may be consummated regardless of whether the Offer is completed, but if the Offer is not completed, the Merger will only be consummated after the shareholders of the Company have approved the Merger Agreement at a meeting of shareholders. In the Merger, each outstanding Share (other than (i) Shares owned by Parent, Purchaser or the Company and (ii) Shares as to which dissenters rights have been perfected (and not withdrawn) in accordance with applicable law) will be converted into the right to receive cash in an amount equal to the Offer Price, without interest thereon and less any applicable withholding taxes.

The Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights for Parent and the Company including, with respect to the Company, in the event that the Company receives a superior proposal. In connection with the termination of the Merger Agreement under specified circumstances, including with respect to the Company s entry into an agreement with respect to a superior proposal, the Company is required to pay to Parent a termination fee equal to $45 million, unless the termination by the Company and entry into an agreement with respect to a superior proposal occurs prior to the “no-shop” period or involves a party from whom the Company has received an acquisition proposal following the date of the Merger Agreement and prior to the “no shop” period, in which case the Company is required to pay Parent a termination fee equal to $25 million. Parent will be required to pay the Company a termination fee equal to $90 million under certain specified circumstances as set forth in the Merger Agreement.

We continually seek to improve our existing products and to develop new ones in order to increase our market share. Prior to sale, any new product requires regulatory approvals, including licensing or pre-market clearance from the FDA in the U.S. and CE marking in Western Europe. For the fiscal years ended May 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009, we spent approximately $15.9 million, $15.4 million and $10.7 million, respectively, for research and development. Research and development expenses have increased over the past three years due to the acquisition of BioArray in August 2008 and the subsequent development work on our molecular immunohematology offering.
