- Angiotech expects to post a net loss on a GAAP and adjusted basis for
the third quarter, pending finalization of certain tax items.
With the third quarter results as reported, we are updating our full year 2007 outlook as follows:
- We are updating our full year 2007 expected royalty revenue range
to $118 million to $120 million, based on third quarter paclitaxel-
eluting stent sales of $448 million announced by BSC in its third
quarter earnings release earlier today and from which we will derive
and record royalty revenue in our fourth quarter of 2007. BSC
announced on October 16 that it plans to present a broad range of
clinical trial data reinforcing the safety and efficacy of TAXUS(R)
coronary stent systems at the upcoming Transcatheter Cardiovascular
Therapeutics (TCT 2007) scientific symposium, which runs from
October 20 to 25 in Washington, DC.
- We are revising our 2007 medical product sales outlook to a range
of $171 million to $173 million, from our previous range of
$190 million to $210 million. Our previous range included expected
revenue of $180 million to $190 million from medical products
obtained in the acquisition of American Medical Instruments, Inc.
(AMI) and $10 million to $30 million from new product lines. We
expect fourth quarter net medical product sales to be between
$42 million and $44 million.
- Our full year 2007 outlook for revenue derived from sales of medical
products obtained from AMI is modestly lower as compared to our
original expectations as a result of our decision to de-emphasize or
discontinue certain product lines that were generating limited or
negative contribution margins in the second half of 2007. In
addition, our previously announced decision to consolidate certain
operations and close our facility in Syracuse, NY has impacted the
shipment and production timing of a limited number of orders for
- Our original full year 2007 outlook for sales revenue derived from
certain new product lines was $10 million to $30 million. At the
present time we expect to begin generating more substantial revenue
from these sources starting in 2008, rather than in the second half
of 2007 as originally expected, as a result of several factors,
- Longer regulatory review times than originally expected, primarily
for our Vascular Wrap(TM) product candidate in the European Union
(EU). While we completed our EU clinical trial and submitted all
regulatory filings as planned, review and approval timelines are
entirely at the discretion of the regulatory body in the EU, and
are not specifically mandated. We had originally expected this
product candidate would be approved for sale by the third quarter
of 2007. We now expect this product candidate, should it receive
EU regulatory approval, to be available for sale in first half of
- An initial "time to first order" of 9 to 12 months, as opposed to
the originally forecasted 3 to 6 months, for our Quill(TM) SRS
product line in the majority of customer accounts. Importantly, we
continue to remain on track to sign up approximately 275 customer
accounts by year-end. As of October 2007, we had signed
approximately 230 Quill(TM) SRS customer accounts, including
67 hospitals, 89 clinics and 74 physician offices, as compared to
only a small number of ordering accounts and fewer than 10
hospitals as of June 2007. As a result of positive physician
reception for the Quill(TM) SRS product launch, we have
accelerated our investments in sales and marketing, completed our
hiring plans ahead of our original schedule, and will continue to
invest research and development resources to expand the Quill(TM)
SRS product line, with the goal of offering approximately 40
Quill(TM) SRS SKUs by year-end.
- Our full year 2007 outlook for certain expenses, including selling,
general and administrative and research and development expenses,
remains consistent with ranges as previously communicated, with
increases in sales and marketing related expenses as compared to the
upper end of the range a possibility. This outlook is inclusive of
investments in the second half of 2007 relating to:
- Sales force expansion, product launch and market development
initiatives for Quill(TM) SRS and our interventional business;
- Launch preparation activities related to our HemoStream(TM)
dialysis catheter product line, which recently received regulatory
approval one quarter in advance of our original expectations;
- The acceleration of clinical trial activities relating to our
Vascular Wrap(TM) product candidate in the U.S.;
- EU product launch and U.S. clinical trial activities relating to
our Bio-Seal(TM) lung biopsy product line.
- As a result of the revenue delays and the decision to maintain
investment in critical programs, we are updating our full year 2007
Adjusted EBITDA outlook range to $47 million to $50 million from the
previously stated $85 million to $95 million. Excluding research and
development expenses, the significant majority of which are
discretionary and relate primarily to our Pharmaceutical Technologies
segment, our expected Adjusted EBITDA range would be $99 million to
- Our outlook regarding adjusted net income per share for 2007 will be
updated on November 1, 2007, pending finalization of certain tax
We caution that the information above concerning our revised outlook for 2007 is forward-looking and accordingly, actual results may differ materially.
"We remain optimistic about our numerous new product opportunities and the revenue potential they provide for Angiotech. Physician excitement for Quill(TM) SRS and other new Angiotech products, our recent positive clinical trial results for our 5-FU CVC product candidate, and the continued progress of our various research and product development programs give us confidence that we should see improved product revenue growth in 2008," said Dr. William Hunter, President and CEO of Angiotech.
"While we had hoped to achieve higher revenues and adjusted EBITDA in the third and fourth quarters of 2007 - the largest impact coming from the delayed timing of revenue from newly launched products - we anticipate that our various businesses and investments in sales, marketing and medical research will deliver growth in 2008," said Thomas Bailey, Chief Financial Officer of Angiotech.

Financial Information and Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Amounts, unless specified otherwise, are expressed in U.S. dollars. Financial results are reported under GAAP unless otherwise noted. All per share amounts are stated on a diluted basis unless otherwise noted.
This press release contains preliminary unaudited financial results for the three month period ended and as of September 30, 2007. Because the selected financial results described in this release are preliminary, these results remain subject to change to reflect necessary corrections or adjustments or changes in accounting estimates that are identified prior to the time that we release our complete third quarter results. Actual results may vary from the results presented in this release. We will release our complete third quarter financial results, including Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, and hold our third quarter results conference call for analysts and investors, as scheduled on November 1, 2007.
Certain financial results presented in this press release include non-GAAP measures that exclude certain items. Adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted net income per share from continuing operations and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") exclude acquisition related amortization charges, acquired in-process research and development relating to license agreements and acquisitions, stock-based compensation expense, foreign exchange gains or losses relating to translation of foreign currency cash and investment balances and other non-recurring items. Adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted net income per share from continuing operations and Adjusted EBITDA also exclude litigation expenses related to defending intellectual property claims. Adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted net income per share from continuing operations, and Adjusted EBITDA do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Management uses certain non-GAAP or adjusted operating measures to establish operational goals and assess corporate performance, and believes that these measures may assist investors in analyzing the underlying trends in our business over time. Investors should consider this non-GAAP measure in addition to, not as a substitute for, or as superior to, financial reporting measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
The financial outlook in this press release presents certain forward-looking, non-GAAP financial information for which at this time there is no calculable comparable GAAP measure or which at this time cannot be quantitatively reconciled to GAAP financial information. Specifically, reconciliation of our EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA outlook to GAAP-based financial information is not feasible at this time, as it would require the estimation of certain expenses that are inherently unpredictable or subject to significant fluctuation for reasons unrelated to our underlying business performance, including stock-based compensation expenses, litigation expenses and foreign exchange gains or losses.
