USE OF PROCEEDS

       We estimate that the net proceeds from the sale of the shares of common stock we are offering will be approximately $                     million. If the underwriters fully exercise the over-allotment option, the net proceeds will be approximately $                     million. “Net proceeds” are what we expect to receive after we pay the underwriting discount and other estimated expenses for this offering. For the purpose of estimating net proceeds, we are assuming that the public offering price will be $           per share.

       The principal purposes of this offering are to solidify our working capital position to support our continuing growth and to create a public market for our common stock. We expect to use the net proceeds of the offering for:

  •  working capital;
 
  •  continued sales, marketing and clinical support initiatives relating to the commercialization of our products; and
 
  •  continued research and development, including the enhancement of our existing system through ongoing product and software development, the design of new proprietary disposable interventional devices for use with our system and the development of next generation versions of our system.

       In addition, we may use a portion of the net proceeds from this offering to repay outstanding lines of credit. We have two secured equipment financing facilities with Silicon Valley Bank. As of March 31, 2004, one facility had an outstanding balance of approximately $543,000, with a maturity date of December 2004, and the second facility had an outstanding balance of approximately $494,000 with a maturity date of September 2005. Borrowings under these facilities bear interest at an annual rate of 10%. We also have a secured revolving line of credit to provide working capital. This revolving line accrues interest at the lender’s prime rate plus 1.25%, subject to a minimum interest rate of 5.25%, and matures in April 2006. As of March 31, 2004 we had approximately $1.25 million outstanding under this working capital line.

       We intend to use the remainder of the net proceeds, if any, for general corporate purposes, which may include the purchase of equipment and the expansion or relocation of facilities. We have not yet determined the amount or timing of the expenditures for each of the categories listed above and these expenditures may vary significantly depending on a variety of factors, including the timing of additional regulatory approvals and new product introductions. As a result, we will retain broad discretion in the allocation and use of the net proceeds of this offering.

       From time to time, we have discussed potential strategic acquisitions and investments with third parties. Currently, we have no agreements or commitments to enter into any such transactions. Pending our uses of the proceeds, we intend to invest the net proceeds of this offering primarily in short-term, investment grade, interest-bearing instruments.

DIVIDEND POLICY

       We have never declared or paid any dividends on our capital stock. We anticipate that we will retain any earnings to support operations and to finance the growth and development of our business. Additionally, under our credit facilities, we are prohibited from declaring dividends without the prior consent of our lender. Therefore, we do not expect to pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Any future determination relating to our dividend policy will be made at the discretion of our board of directors and will depend on a number of factors, including future earnings, capital requirements, financial conditions, future prospects and other factors that the board of directors may deem relevant.
