Over the last three presidential administrations, the United States government has granted AirSep Corporation 27 special licenses to do business in Iran. (New York Times, "Companies with Permission to Bypass Sanctions," 12/24/10)


"Helen Ying and Larry Hughes, who head AirSep's medical and industrial divisions, said the company had received licenses to sell products like an oxygen machine that effectively turns a room into an oxygen tent and central oxygen systems that supply entire hospitals. The company uses a middleman in Iran, whom Mr. Hughes declined to name for competitive reasons, to make the sales, and another company to do the installations. 'It's a hard way to do business,' he said." (New York Times, "Licenses Granted to U.S. Companies Run the Gamut," 12/24/10)
