ARDEN HILLS, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IntriCon Corporation (NASDAQ: IIN), a designer, developer, manufacturer and distributor of miniature and micro-miniature body-worn devices, today announced that it has completed phase one, as anticipated, of the introduction of its advanced digital hearing devices into Hearing Help Express’ (HHE) product line. IntriCon introduced its first digital hearing device, the EarMate 4220, into the HHE portfolio in March 2017, and just recently completed phase one of the digital offering by adding the Apollo 6200, the Apollo 6310 and the Ranger 7610 digital hearing aids.
“Digital hearing aids provide superior clarity and a better listening experience over their analog counterparts,” said Mark S. Gorder, president and chief executive officer of IntriCon. “Through HHE we’re now able to offer a lower-priced alternative for consumers to purchase technically advanced digital devices directly—circumventing layers of costs associated with the conventional hearing aid channel.”
Company Comments on Stock Price Activity
IntriCon also announced today that it has received numerous inquiries regarding market activity in the company’s stock. Management is unaware of any reason IntriCon stock has experienced a recent price decrease.
Said Gorder, “We’re committed to creating and cultivating a new channel to deliver superior, outcomes-based affordable hearing healthcare directly to consumers. We believe that this effort will drive success for IntriCon and deliver value for our shareholders. We continue to anticipate strong hearing health and medical performance in the second quarter, and we look forward to reporting our results in early August.”
