HeartWare Announces Move to an Expanded, Upgraded Manufacturing Facility
Date:4/18/2008

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. and SYDNEY, Australia, April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- HeartWare Limited (ASX: HTW) today announced that it is moving to an expanded, upgraded manufacturing facility in Miami Lakes, FL, USA. The new 59,000- square-foot facility, which is nearly twice the size of HeartWare's current facility, will enable a scaling up in manufacturing output and is expected to meet all of the Company's operational needs indefinitely.

Subject to approval from the FDA, HeartWare anticipates the U.S. trial to start during the current quarter.

The facility move will impact HeartWare's European regulatory timeline since the need for ISO certification is a key requirement for a CE Mark submission. HeartWare will schedule a regulatory audit of the facility as soon as practical following the completion of the move. This is expected to lead to receipt of CE Mark during the second half of 2008.

HeartWare Chief Executive Officer Doug Godshall said the new facility offered the opportunity to relocate to a high quality, purpose-built medical device facility at a significantly lower rental rate while also saving HeartWare the multi-million dollar costs and time to upgrade the clean room infrastructure at its cur
