Date:11/4/2008

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 27, 2008.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2008 was $12.0 million, an 11.7% decrease from the $13.6 million reported for the third quarter of 2007. The Company recorded net loss of $0.2 million or $(0.03) per diluted share for the third quarter of 2008, an improvement over the net loss of $1.2 million or $(0.15) per diluted share reported in the third quarter of 2007.

Ophthalmology revenues were $8.2 million in the third quarter of 2008, a 4.0% increase from $7.9 million in the comparable period of 2007. Comparing third quarter 2008 vs. 2007, domestic ophthalmology revenues increased 17.0% to $5.3 million, international ophthalmology revenues decreased 13.2% to $2.9 million and ophthalmology recurring revenues, consisting of disposable products and service, increased to 49.3% of our total ophthalmology revenues compared to 46.9% for the comparable period of 2007.

Total aesthetics revenues were $3.8 million in the third quarter of 2008, a decrease of 33.4% from $5.7 million in the comparable period of 2007. In the third quarter of 2008, domestic aesthetics revenues decreased $0.6 million to $2.1 million and international aesthetics revenues decreased $1.3 million to $1.7 million when compared to the same period in 2007.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2008 was $5.0 million, compared with $6.2 million for the third quarter of 2007. Gross margins were 41.6% and 45.6%, respectively. Operating expenses for the third quarter 2008 were $5.2 million compared with $7.2 million for 2007.

Mr. Theodore A. Boutacoff, President and CEO stated, "Operationally we continue to make progress towards financial stability as demonstrated by the substantial improvement in our quarterly operating performance year over year, reducing loss from operations from $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2007 to a loss of $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2008, primarily due to reductions in operating expenses. Furthermore, we can report that we have met all of our obligations to AMS which has been a major cash burden for us during the first 9 months of 2008. In total, including principle, interest and payments for the non-cancelable purchase orders we paid AMS $6.3 million in 2008, with $2.0 million of that being during the third quarter."

Cash and cash equivalents were $3.0 million as of September 27, 2008 down from $4.1 million as of June 28, 2008. However, working capital increased to $9.4 million from $8.9 million over the same period. Cash used in operations for the third quarter was $1.0 million, which includes repaying the remaining amounts owed to AMS, and our bank debt as of September 27, 2008 was $6.0 million, which was unchanged from the balance as of June 28, 2008.
