Based on our preliminary discussions with Silimed, we learned that the fire occurred in the building where Sientras breast implants are primarily manufactured. Silimed has indicated that a smaller production facility in Silimeds second building, which was not impacted by the fire, has the potential to be modified for breast implant manufacturing. In order to beg in the manufacturing of breast implants in this second building, certain areas in this facility would need to be reconfigured and receive certification and approval by appropriate regulatory bodies. We are currently working with Silimed to assess the feasibility and timing of such a plan.

Documentation related to the matter in question;

Procedures for manufacturing Sientras products;

Environmental monitoring;

Data, testing and analysis conducted by or on behalf of Silimed; and
