The net loss for the second quarter was $(432) thousand, compared to a net profit of $171 thousand for the second quarter of last year. Healthcare's loss in Q2 2007 is mainly due to the following: (i) a decrease of approximately $300 thousand in sales to the clinical diagnostics market vs. the first quarter; (ii) financial expenses relating to the depreciation of the NIS versus the US dollar; and (iii) one time legal settlement expenses amounting to approximately $155 thousand.
