CABOT MEDICAL ANNOUNCES PRELIMINARY YEAR-END RESULTS AND DECLARES STOCK DIVIDEND

 LANGHORNE, Pa., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Cabot Medical Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: CBOT) today released preliminary financial information on its fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 1993.
 Sales for the full year were up 26 percent, from $55.0 million in 1992 to $69.6 million in 1993. Losses for the year increased from $2.2 million or $.23 per share in 1992 to $9.6 million or $1.03 per share. 1993 results included a full year of Surgitek operations vs. three months in 1992.
 The company also announced a dividend in the form of additional shares of Cabot Medical common stock equivalent to 10 percent of holdings for all Cabot Medical shareholders of record as of Dec. 31, 1993, payable on Jan. 14, 1994.
 Commenting on the year end results, Warren Wood, chairman and CEO, stated, "In 1993, we have witnessed the beginning of a restructuring of the U.S. healthcare delivery system. This restructuring has disrupted the purchasing patterns of our customers which resulted in a decrease in demand for certain of our products. As a result, we did not meet our sales and earnings targets during the year.
 "In recognition of this new reality in our marketplace, we took the necessary steps to better position our company to compete in this environment in the future. These steps included an overall reduction in operating costs and a rationalization of facilities and certain of our product lines along with the attendant inventories. These efforts resulted in a one time charge of approximately $10 million against fourth quarter earnings and a loss for the fiscal year, as previously announced.
 "We are entering 1994 with a more efficient organization, properly positioned to compete, and with a pipeline of exciting, new speciality products recently introduced or to be introduced shortly. We are confident that these factors together with a highly motivated dedicated and experienced management team and staff, will produce positive results in the coming year."
 Cabot Medical Corporation designs, develops, manufactures and markets a variety of medical devices and systems for less invasive general, gynecological and urological surgical and diagnostic procedures.
