Masimo Honors Birthday of Mahatma Gandhi With Global Holiday

MASI) announced today that in honor of the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi
(October 2, 1869), the company will close worldwide and offer an
additional paid holiday to employees on Monday, October 3rd.

Mahatma Gandhi, born Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, is considered the
preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement, famous for
seeking change, conflict resolution, and agreement through nonviolent
protest, often through public fasting. He is still honored today as a
global symbol of peace, with his birthday a national holiday in India
and celebrated worldwide as the International Day of Nonviolence.

“Masimo has chosen to honor Gandhi’s birthday to remind its employees
and partners worldwide of the enduring importance of those role models
who have helped shape our world for the better. At Masimo, we strive
each day to remain true to our promises and responsibilities,” said Joe
Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. “For us, that includes being
thoughtful citizens of the world, striving to improve patient care
through our innovative products and technologies. In these difficult
times, when injustice, violence, and hatred are never far from the
headlines, it’s especially important to remember and admire the life of
one who so consistently embodied peace, forgiveness, and understanding.
Gandhi got what his people wanted and gained his country’s independence
from British rule through peaceful civil disobedience. I hope all Masimo
employees worldwide will use this extra day to take stock of their
lives, their goals, and their responsibilities, and to take steps to
create a more just and peaceful world.”

About Masimo

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive
monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and
reduce the cost of care by taking noninvasive monitoring to new sites
and applications. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET®
Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been
shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and
accurately monitor for true alarms. Masimo SET® is estimated
to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and
other healthcare settings around the world. In 2005, Masimo introduced
rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive
and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could
only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®),
oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®),
methemoglobin (SpMet®), and more recently, Pleth Variability
Index (PVI®) and Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™), in addition to
SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI). In 2014, Masimo
introduced Root®, an intuitive patient monitoring and
connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect™ (MOC-9™) interface.
Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products
such as the Radius-7™ wearable patient monitor and the MightySat™
fingertip pulse oximeter. Additional information about Masimo and its
