Preliminary full year and fourth quarter 2007 preservation services and product revenues increased 16% and 17%, respectively, to approximately

$93.7 million for the year and $24.6 million for the fourth quarter

ATLANTA, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CryoLife, Inc. (NYSE: CRY), a biomaterials, medical device and tissue processing company, announced today that preservation services and product revenues for 2007 were approximately $93.7 million compared to $81.1 million in 2006, an increase of 16 percent. Preservation services and product revenues for the fourth quarter of 2007 were approximately $24.6 million compared to $21.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2006, an increase of 17 percent. The Company's GAAP revenues are composed of preservation services and product revenues plus other revenues, which include grant and license revenues. Total other revenues for 2007 are not finalized, but are not expected to exceed one percent of total revenues.

BioGlue(R) revenues were approximately $43.9 million for the full year of 2007 compared to $40.0 million in 2006, an increase of 10 percent. BioGlue revenues were approximately $11.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2007, compared to $10.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2006, an increase of 10 percent.

Total tissue preservation services revenues were approximately $49.0 million for the full year of 2007 compared to $40.1 million in 2006, an increase of 22 percent. Tissue preservation services revenues were approximately $13.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2007, compared to $10.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2006, an increase of 27 percent.

Combined cardiac and vascular tissue preservation revenues increased 36 percent for the full year of 2007 to $44.8 million compared to $32.9 million in 2006, on a 25 percent increase in unit shipments. Combined cardiac and vascular tissue preservation revenues increased 49 percent in the fourth quarter of 2007 to $12.4 million, compared to $8.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2006, on a 41 percent increase in unit shipments.

Orthopaedic tissue preservation revenues decreased 41 percent for the full year of 2007 to $4.2 million, compared to $7.1 million in 2006, and decreased 71 percent for the fourth quarter of 2007 to $552,000, compared to $1.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2006 because the Company stopped procuring and processing such tissue in January 2007 pursuant to its Exchange and Service Agreement with Regeneration Technologies, Inc.

"The strategic initiative that we announced in late 2006 and implemented throughout 2007 has resulted in record setting tissue preservation and product revenues for fiscal year 2007," noted Steven G. Anderson, CryoLife president and chief executive officer.

All statements relating to the Company's fourth quarter and full year 2007 revenues contained in this release are preliminary and unaudited and may change based on the completion by the Company's management and independent auditors of customary year-end closing procedures.
