TORONTO, Nov. 11, 2011 /CNW/ - Futuremed Healthcare Products Corporation (the "Company") (TSX: FMD) announced today that it had participated in a tendering process initiated by an important customer and has been informed that distribution to this customer will be moved to a competitor during the first quarter of 2012. The sales to the customer in question during the most recent financial year represented approximately 5% of revenues. The precise impact on the Company's earnings in the future is difficult to assess as the Company is still evaluating potential mitigation actions, but is likely to have a larger impact on earnings than revenues.
