Mindray's net income booms in Q3
Mindray Medical, a Shenzhen, China-based medical device manufacturer, has reported an increase in profits of 55.2 percent in its fiscal 2009 third quarter, ending Sept. 30.

The company posted net income of $43.4 million (U.S.) for the quarter, compared with net income of $28 million reported for the same period a year ago. Net revenue for the period was $151.1 million, an increase of 3.1 percent over the $146.5 million in sales posted in the 2008 third quarter.
