"Our investment in AFP Imaging will strengthen the company's commitment to world-wide growth, continued product innovation and outstanding customer service" stated R. Scott Jones. "We expect to build on the company's long history and solid reputation as a leader in its marketplace" added Jones.
David Vozick, CEO commented, "Over the past five years, AFP has focused on, and invested in, the expansion of its R&D and marketing efforts for its digital imaging, radiographic product lines. This was done in parallel with medical professionals transitioning from x-ray film based equipment to digital formats with its inherent benefits. Patients and clinicians, around the world, are currently using AFP's proprietary technology and equipment. The Company's 3-D, NewTom dental x-ray scanner and the resulting images are but one example of this leadership role. The added investment by BioWave Innovations and ComVest will immediately help stabilize and improve the Company's financial condition during this difficult economic climate so that AFP may continue to thrive and grow."
