Date:3/25/2008

Company reports full year operating income of $856,000

IRVINE, Calif., March 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardiogenesis Corporation (Pink Sheets: CGCP), a leading developer of surgical products and accessories used in angina-relieving procedures, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2007.

Sales in the fourth quarter of 2007 totaled $2,767,000, a 24% decrease from the prior year fourth quarter sales of $3,664,000. During the fourth quarter of 2007, the Company sold three lasers and 462 handpiece units as compared to four lasers and 674 handpieces during the fourth quarter of 2006. The lower revenue in the current year quarter is primarily attributable to a $732,000, or 29%, decline in disposable handpiece revenue, and a $174,000, or 20%, decrease in capital sales as compared with the prior year quarter.

Sales for the year ended December 31, 2007 totaled $12,059,000, a decrease of approximately 30% from the $17,117,000 of sales recorded for the year ended December 31, 2006. The decrease in sales as compared with the prior year is primarily attributable to a $3,251,000, or 28%, decline in disposable handpiece revenue and a $1,927,000, or 43%, decline in capital sales. During the year ended December 31, 2007, the company sold 14 lasers and 2,293 handpieces as compared to 22 lasers and 3,162 handpieces in the prior year period.

"In addressing the reduction in sales during 2007, we are encouraged by the progress we have made in the second half of 2007 in expanding our sales force to support increasing sales going forward, finishing the year with 17 sales/clinical professionals in the field compared to 10 at the beginning of the year," commented Richard Lanigan, Cardiogenesis' President.

Cardiogenesis reported a fourth quarter 2007 operating loss of $32,000 as compared with an operating loss of $947,000 in the prior year quarter. The net loss for the quarter was $84,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, as compared with a net loss of $493,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, in the 2006 fourth quarter.

For the year ended December 31, 2007, Cardiogenesis reported operating income of $856,000 as compared with an operating loss of $1,476,000 for the prior year period. The net income for the year ended December 31, 2007 was $578,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, compared with a net loss of $1,979,000, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2006.

Gross margin was 63% of sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 as compared with a 75% gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2006. Gross profit in absolute dollars decreased by $1,017,000 to $1,731,000 for the current year quarter as compared with $2,748,000 for the 2006 fourth quarter. The decrease in gross margin resulted primarily from inventory impairment charges of $508,000 during the quarter that did not occur in the prior year quarter. Excluding inventory impairment charges, gross margin for the 2007 fourth quarter was 81%. For the year ended December 31, 2007, gross profit was 76% of net revenues as compared to 79% of net revenues for the year ended December 31, 2006.

The decrease in gross margin for the full year resulted primarily from inventory impairment charges. Excluding the inventory impairment charges, gross margin was approximately 80% for the years ended December 31, 2007 and 2006.

Research and development costs ("R&D") were $69,000 in the fourth quarter of 2007 as compared with $374,000 in the 2006 fourth quarter. For the year ended December 31, 2007, R&D expenses of $681,000 were $793,000 below the prior year period.
