About CRH Medical Corporation:

CRH Medical Corporation is a North American company that provides physicians with innovative products and services for the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. The Company's product distribution strategy focuses on physician education, patient outcomes, and patient awareness. The Company's first product, the CRH O'Regan System, is a single use, disposable, hemorrhoid banding technology that is safe and highly effective in treating hemorrhoid grades I – IV. CRH distributes the CRH O'Regan System, treatment protocols, operational and marketing expertise as a complete, turnkey package directly to physicians, allowing CRH to create meaningful relationships with the physicians it serves. CRH also operates full service gastroenterology anesthesia services businesses, which provide anesthesia services for patients undergoing endoscopies and colonoscopies. Performing these procedures under anesthesia makes these procedures more comfortable for patients and allows gastroenterologists to perform more procedures than in the absence of anesthesia. CRH expects to leverage the capabilities it acquired through these gastroenterology anesthesia companies to consolidate the highly fragmented gastroenterology anesthesia provider business. The Company's goal is to establish CRH as the premier provider of innovative products and essential services to gastroenterologists throughout the United States.
