There are several factors fueling Haemonetics' performance: revenue growth year-to-date at the high end of annual guidance; discipline regarding price, mix, and cost of goods, leading to gross margin in the 50% range; discipline in expense management; and lower than planned year to date tax rate.

Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. , stated, "We started the year with a revenue challenge due to consolidation in the plasma market. Our guidance reflected that business reality. We're very pleased that in the first three quarters of the year, growth in our non plasma businesses exceeded our plans. That growth, which we believe is sustainable, plus other factors, positions us to achieve earnings per share in a higher range than originally planned."

Plasma disposables revenue was $24 million for the quarter, down 9.4% over Q3:04 and $74 million year-to-date, down 15.1% from FY04.

Haemonetics continues to be affected by these market pressures.
Blood bank disposables revenue was $34 million, up 14.8% over Q3:04 and $98 million year-to-date, up 19.2% over FY04. There are several factors contributing to blood bank sales success year-to-date: unit volume increases, share gains and a shift to higher priced filtered platelet collection sets in Japan, and an increase in sales of intravenous intravenous /in·tra·ve·nous/ (-ve´nus) within a vein or veins.intrave´nously
