2 Medline History Textiles is our Heritage Started almost 100 years ago as a textile company Medline pioneered many textile innovations that are now widely-used in healthcare today: Colored scrubs, printed patient gowns, knitted sheets Largest U.S. Provider of Healthcare Textiles in the USA Approximately 36% healthcare market share in the U.S. Over 19,800 textile customers #1 or #2 healthcare market position in every major category

3 $4 Billion in sales employees Number one privately held manufacturer and distributor of health care products in the U.S. 40+ years of consecutive growth 4th generation family leadership 1000 person dedicated sales force Steady International Growth Medline Sales History

4 Historical Development of the Reusable Market Until the 1950s Muslin material was the accepted reusable surgical material The belief was it would stop airborne microbes & was a T140, 100% Cotton material The fabric was white in color and produced glare which tired the surgeons eyes – Medline introduced color into the Operating Room by coloring the gowns and drapes green to reduce glare

5 Historical Development of the Reusable Market In 1952 William C. Beck reported muslin material may have been considered an acceptable bacteriological barrier when dry, but lost whatever barrier capability it possessed once it became wet. New fabrics were developed with a higher thread count and chemical finishes such as Quarpel were applied However not much changed at the hospital level for about a decade as they continued to use Muslin fabrics At the same time disposable fabrics were being developed and their use began to increase

6 Historical Development of the Reusable Market In the late 1980s Reusable Surgical Textiles finally improved substantially 100% polyester materials were developed that provided a very good barrier to fluids and strike through In the early 1990s Gore was introduced as a Liquid Proof and Breathable fabric for surgeons gowns Unfortunately the barn door was left open and the horse was gone!

7 Disposable Surgical Textiles During the 70s and 80s the use of disposable surgical textiles surged higher The U.S. government reimbursed hospitals for single use items on a cost plus basis Hospitals used disposables to generate revenue Reusable Surgical Textiles were not reimbursable The technology for disposables was better than the reusable's

8 Organisation of The Reusable Market As of 2004, through a survey it was estimated disposables had captured 84% of the market for surgical textiles in the USA Disposables promised the product would be perfect every time Whereas, with reusable's you would need to have faith the laundry had processed, inspected and repaired the textile item appropriately Sadly, many laundries were not meeting expectations

9 Organisation of The Reusable Market U.S. ~ 20 Million Surgical Procedures Annually Gowns ~ 85% Disposable – 15% Reusable Primarily Level 3 and 4 (using AAMI Guidelines) Drapes ~ 85% Disposable Table Covers and Mayo Stand Covers – 15% Reusable ~ 95% Disposable Patient Drapes – 5% Reusable

10 Organisation of The Reusable Market Canada ~ 2 Million Surgical Procedures Annually Gowns 60% Disposable – 40% Reusable Reusable's are ~ 80% Level 4 Balance is a mix of Level 3 and Level 2 Disposables are ~ 75% Level 3, 25% Level 4 Drapes 70% Disposable – 30% Reusable

11 Organisation of The Reusable Market Mexico – number of procedures unknown Gowns and Drapes are about 60% Reusable ~ 50/50 split between cotton and microfiber Rapidly transitioning to disposable gowns and drapes

12 Medlines Position In The Reusable Market USA 31% Market Share Primarily Gowns, Wrappers, Table Covers and Mayo Stands Canada 30% Market Share Primarily Gowns, Wrappers, Table Covers and Mayo Stands Mexico Very little Reusable sales

13 Medlines Position In The Reusable Market Complete Delivery on a Rental Basis Sterile Recoveries Can cover about 70% of the USA About $100 M in revenue Comprised of reusable's textiles, stainless steel and disposable sterile packs Primarily Level 4 and 3; some level 2 Other Laundries with Sterilization Capability HLS – Illinois MUHL – Wisconsin Comtex – Ohio Crown Laundry – Alabama Mayflower - Maryland

14 Promotion of Reusable's Creating a sustainability catalog that draws from every division (20) within Medline Providing support to build Pack Rooms and provide guidance in meeting FDA regulations within laundries Dedicated Textile Sales Representatives to sell textiles in the USA and Canada Implementing Hybrid programs to provide a mix of Reusable's and Disposables – this will increase our reusable sales by 10 to 30%

15 Promotion of Reusable's Continue to educate on the AAMI Guidelines:

16 The Position of Reusable's vs. Disposables Reusable Surgical Textiles have the ability to provide a cost effective alternative to Disposables The U.S. Government is reducing its funding for hospitals Hospitals must find ways to cut cost and save money Adding a pack room to the laundry and converting to reusable's is one potential savings

17 The Position of Reusable's vs. Disposables Cost Savings Analysis: ProductGown pack costGowns used per year*Annual Spend XL Ultra Level 3 - KC 95121$2.5712,900$33,153 XL Fabric Reinforced (no level)$2.712,556$6,927 Total $40,080 Medline Reusable Level 3$1.9312,900$24,883 Medline Reusable Level 4$ $6,826 Total $31,710 Annual Savings moving to Reusable Gowns $8,370 % Savings moving to Reusable Gowns 20.9%

18 The Position of Reusable's vs. Disposables Reusable's are also primarily synthetic and do not produce lint which coincides with the objective of AORN in the USA and ORNAC in Canada Many hospitals have established Green committees to try and become more environmentally friendly We must support their efforts with documentation on our sustainable products

19 Summary Reusable Textiles have dramatically changed in the past 100 years from Muslin to high tech synthetic materials Disposables filled the vacuum we provided when our product did not have the required barrier properties Government helped to reinforce the transition to disposables We must prove our products are cost effective and sustainable to win over new customers
