      Medtronic is the world leader in medical technology. The Medtronic Mission, to alleviate pain,
restore health, and extend life and to continuously pioneer advances in biomedical engineering,
has been the Company's driving force. Medtronic ENT, a subsidiary of Medtronic, Inc., is a leading
developer of products to treat people with diseases of the ear, nose, and throat (ENT) and is
headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida.

                                  Medtronic ENT was awarded the Shingo Prize for Excellence in
                           Manufacturing. Here, people are the key to producing world-class
                           results. Leadership has created a Lean culture and every team
                           member is a part of a value stream that works as a unit to meet the
                           customer’s need.

      Leadership has led the way and all team members are trained in Lean Principles and
cross-trained in multiple value streams through job-specific training. The teams are empowered to
plan production, execute the plan and ensure production goals for quality, cost, and delivery are
met. The key to their success is the application of Lean principles, not just in manufacturing, but
also throughout the enterprise. Finance, Purchasing and Planning, Manufacturing, Engineering,
and Maintenance have all been assigned to the value streams. From leadership down and across
departments, the Lean culture has made a difference!

         We look forward to seeing you at this dynamic presentation!
