When used in this report, the terms "we," "us," and "our" refer to ICU Medical, Inc ("ICU") and its subsidiaries included in our condensed consolidated financial statements unless context requires otherwise.

Business Overview

We are one of the world's leading pure-play infusion therapy companies with global operations and a wide-ranging product portfolio that includes IV solutions, IV smart pumps with pain management and safety software technology, dedicated and non-dedicated IV sets and needlefree connectors designed to help meet clinical, safety and workflow goals. In addition, we manufacture automated pharmacy IV compounding systems with workflow technology, closed systems transfer devices for preparing and administering hazardous IV drugs, and cardiac monitoring systems for critically ill patients.

Table of Contents

We categorize our products into four main product lines: Infusion Consumables, Infusion Systems, IV Solutions and Critical Care. We have presented our financial results in accordance with these product lines, with our primary products in each line listed below.

Operations Overview


The novel coronavirus and its variants ("COVID-19") continues to have an impact on our business operations. Our manufacturing, distribution and pump service facilities continue to operate under our business continuity plan and our precautionary safety measures implemented to maximize the safety of our employees and mitigate disruption of our business are still in effect. For greater detail on the above mentioned safety measures and a discussion of how future results may potentially be impacted by COVID-19 see Part II, Item 7, of our 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

While we continually monitor the ongoing and evolving impact of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations the overall impact will not be fully reflected in our results of operations until future periods. The duration and extent of the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic depends on future developments that cannot be fully predicted at this time, as such, the impact of the pandemic on our overall financial performance remain uncertain and cannot as yet be quantified.

Infusion Consumables

Infusion therapy sets, used in hospitals and ambulatory clinics, consist of a tube running from a bottle or plastic bag containing a solution to a catheter inserted in a patient's vein, that may or may not be used with an IV pump. Our primary Infusion Consumable products are:

Clave(TM) needlefree products, including the MicroClave, MicroClave Clear, and NanoClave(TM) brand of connectors, accessories, extension and administration sets used for the administration of IV fluids and medications and the Neutron catheter patency device, used to help maintain patency of central venous catheters;

SwabCap disinfecting cap, used to protect and disinfect any needlefree connector, including competitive brands of connectors;

ClearGuard HD antimicrobial barrier caps for hemodialysis catheters; and

TegoTM hemodialysis connector used to cap and protect hemodialysis central venous catheter hubs;

Closed System Transfer Devices ("CSTD") and hazardous drug compounding systems are used to prepare and deliver hazardous IV medications such as those used in chemotherapy, which, if released, can have harmful effects on the healthcare worker and environment. Our products are:

ChemoLockTM CSTD which utilizes a proprietary needlefree connection method, is used for the preparation and administration of hazardous drugs. ChemoLock is used to limit the escape of hazardous drug or vapor concentrations, block the transfer of environmental contaminants into the system, and eliminates the risk of needlestick injury;

ChemoClaveTM, an ISO Connection standard and universally compatible CSTD used for the preparation and administration of hazardous drugs. ChemoClave utilizes standard ISO luer locking connections, making it compatible with all brands of needlefree connectors and pump delivery systems. ChemoClave also is used to limit the escape of hazardous drug or vapor concentrations, block the transfer of environmental contaminants into the system, and eliminate the risk of needlestick injury; and

Table of Contents

The preparation of hazardous drugs typically takes place in a pharmacy where drugs are removed from vials and prepared for delivery to a patient. Those prepared drugs are then transferred to a nursing unit where the chemotherapy is administered via an infusion pump set to a patient. Components of the ChemoClave and ChemoLock product lines are used both in pharmacies and on the nursing floors for the preparation and administration of hazardous drugs.

We manage our product distribution in the U.S. through a network of two owned and one leased distribution facilities in combination with independent distributors and third-party fulfillment and logistics providers. Our end customers, which include healthcare providers and original equipment manufacturer suppliers, may order and receive our products directly from us or through an independent full-line distributor. Internationally, we manage distribution utilizing international regional hubs and through independent distributors.

In the U.S. a substantial amount of our products are sold to group purchasing organization member hospitals. We believe that as healthcare providers continue to either consolidate or join major buying organizations, the success of our products will depend, in part, on our ability, either independently or through strategic relationships to secure long-term contracts with large healthcare providers and major buying organizations. Although we believe that we are not dependent on any single distributor, large healthcare provider or major buying organization for distribution of our products, the loss of a strategic relationship with any one of these organizations or a decline in the demand for our products could have a material adverse effect on our operating results.

We believe that achievement of our growth objectives worldwide will require increased efforts by us in sales and marketing and product acquisition and development; however, there is no assurance that we will be successful in implementing our growth strategy. Product development or acquisition efforts may not succeed, and even if we do develop or acquire additional products, there is no assurance that we will achieve profitable sales of such products. Increased expenditures for sales and marketing and product acquisition and development may not yield desired results when expected, or at all. While we have Table of Contents

Seasonality/Quarterly Results

There are no significant seasonal aspects to our business. We may experience fluctuations in net sales as a result of variations in the ordering patterns of our largest customers, which may be driven more by production scheduling and their inventory levels, rather than by seasonality. Our expenses often do not fluctuate in the same manner as net sales, which may cause fluctuations in operating income that are disproportionate to fluctuations in our revenue.
