    • Hi encore00,
      I would like to see positive cash flow and good prospects for increasing revenue going forward. I doubt they can put a number on the new businesses such as the Veterinary business because they won't start shipping the Vet laser system until the second quarter. But they can tell us that the level of pre-orders are good and talk about whether the Dental shows generated much excitement or give indications of the Dental laser business activity increasing. I would like to see guidance about their more established Dental business where most of their current business comes from. The new businesses are incremental additions which are helpful in increasing revenue going forward. Also note that with every system they sell, there is ongoing consumables business which is a positive revenue generator. My gut feel is that the Dental Laser market is just now starting to transition the knee of a hockey stick and is poised for accelerated growth. I would like to hear that from BIOL. I think this year will be the transition year for their business into profitability with strong revenue increases. Let's see if this is what we learn from today's earnings release.

      Best Regards,
