Osteotech Reports 2008 Third Quarter Financial Results

EATONTOWN, N.J., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Osteotech, Inc. (Nasdaq: OSTE), a leader in the emerging field of biologic products for regenerative healing, reported today that revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2008 was $24.1 million compared to $25.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007. The decline in third quarter 2008 revenue compared to the prior year was primarily driven by a $2.8 million reduction in private label DBM revenue, which was partially offset by a 6% increase in our base line revenue, which includes our Grafton, Xpanse, Plexur and traditional tissue franchises. Gross margin was 54% and 55% in the third quarter of 2008 and 2007, respectively. Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2008 was $58 thousand compared to net income of $1.6 million, or $.09 diluted earnings per share, for the third quarter of 2007.

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 increased 2% to $79.2 million from $77.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007. The revenue growth in 2008 compared to 2007 is mainly driven by a 6% increase in our base line revenue and $1.0 million in incremental revenue from the processing of donors, partially offset by a $3.1 million decline in private label DBM revenue. Gross margin was 53% for the first nine months of 2008 compared to 51% for the first nine months of 2007. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 was $2.6 million, or $.15 diluted earnings per share, compared to net income of $1.8 million, or $.10 diluted earning per share, for the same period in the prior year. Net income in 2008 included $1.0 million associated with the settlement of certain litigation, while net income for 2007 was negatively impacted by costs of $1.1 million related to the settlement of certain litigation.

Sam Owusu-Akyaw, Osteotech's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "The transition of our business model is almost complete. Our new product development strategy is on track to deliver new biologic products to the marketplace. We continue to execute on our access distribution strategy and we built leverage into our back office structure and systems. I continue to be encouraged by the progress we are making. We are confident the new product introductions scheduled for 2009 and increased effectiveness of our distribution system will be the catalysts to allow us to continue the growth of our base line business."
