Boston Scientific Announces Results for First Quarter Ended March 31, 2008

reduction in value of those intangible assets.

-- Revenue growth rates stated on a constant currency basis, by their

nature, exclude the impact of foreign exchange, which may have a

material impact on GAAP net sales.

-- Other companies may calculate non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income

per diluted share, or regional and divisional revenue growth rates that

exclude the impact of foreign exchange differently than Boston

Scientific does, limiting the usefulness of those measures for

comparative purposes.

Compensation for Limitations Associated with Use of Non-GAAP Financial


Boston Scientific compensates for the limitations on its non-GAAP

financial measures by relying upon its GAAP results to gain a complete

picture of the Company's performance. The non-GAAP numbers focus instead

upon the core business of the Company, which is only a subset, albeit a

critical one, of the Company's performance.

The Company provides detailed reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial

measure to its most directly comparable GAAP measure in the accompanying

schedules, and Boston Scientific encourages investors to review these


Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Investors

The Company believes that presenting non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net

income per share, and regional and divisional revenue growth rates that

exclude the impact of foreign exchange in addition to the related GAAP

measures provides investors greater transparency to the information used

by Boston Scientific management for its financial and operational

decision-making and allows investors to see Boston Scientific's results

"through the eyes" of management. The Company further believes that

providing this information better enables Boston Scientific's investors to

understand the Company's opera
