David Pendarvis, Chief Administrative Officer for ResMed released a statement to KETK,
"ResMed is a growing company that develops and sells products to treat sleep apnea, among other sleep and breathing disorders. While Texas has an attractive, business-friendly economic climate, there are many considerations when choosing a place to accommodate the growth of our business. We are currently studying the pros and cons of a variety of options including states other than Texas."
