CORRECTION: The publishers of the report on which the slideshow is based - EvaluateMedTech - previously described these companies as firers. They have amended the report to reflect that headcount have been reduced in these companies. That could be because of workers being fired, but also sale of business units or other reasons that can cause headcount to shrink.
