Chindex International, Inc. Announces Preliminary Second Quarter Results and Improved Revenue Outlook for Fiscal 2009

-- Increases Revenue Outlook for the Second Half of Fiscal 2009 -- -- Announces Preliminary Revenue and EPS for the Second Quarter of FY09 --

-- Second Quarter Results to be Released on November 10, 2008 --

BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 3 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Chindex International, Inc. (Nasdaq: CHDX), a leading independent American provider of western healthcare products and services in the People's Republic of China, today increased its revenue outlook for the second half of the fiscal year 2009 and announced preliminary financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

"We are increasingly confident in our revenue outlook for the second half of the fiscal year. In our medical products division, we have begun to execute the $23.0 million in loan program contracts awarded thus far under German KfW and U.S. Exim programs, and we expect to recognize this revenue in the second half of the year, and are experiencing continuing strong demand for sales of the daVinci robotic surgical systems. In our health care services division, we expect a return to revenue levels anticipated prior to the Olympics. These factors give us confidence that our medical products division will generate revenue of $50-$55 million in the second half of the year. We further reaffirm our prior guidance regarding our health care services division in which we expect approximately thirty percent growth during the full year. This would result in total revenue of $160-170 million in fiscal 2009, a significant increase from the prior year's revenue of $130 million," stated Roberta Lipson, Chief Executive Officer of Chindex International, Inc.

Lipson continued, "With this in mind, we decided to release preliminary financial results for the fiscal second quarter today. Preliminary second quarter revenue of $38.1 million reflects an improved performance by the medical products division, offset by the anticipated impact of the Olympics on patient volumes in the hospital division. Preliminary net income of $862,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the quarter includes a 23% effective tax rate, $645,000 or $0.04 per share expense related to the development of the United Family Healthcare network and a noncash expense of $594,000, or $0.04 per share for the change in the fair value of certain derivatives associated with our investments, which was consistent with the dramatic drop in markets worldwide."

The Company will provide an overview of these preliminary results during its appearance at 8:40 AM ET this morning at the Oppenheimer 19th Annual Healthcare Conference. A webcast of this event will be available and can be accessed through the company's website at .
