Revenues in the Company's home dialysis market were $11.9 million in the second quarter of 2008, compared to $10.5 million in the first quarter of 2008. Revenues in the in-center market, from the Company's Medisystems in-center business, were $15.4 million in the second quarter of 2008, compared to $16.1 million in the first quarter of 2008.

NxStage reported a net loss of $12.5 million, or ($0.32) per share, based on shares outstanding as of June 30, 2008, for the second quarter of 2008, compared with a net loss of $13.9 million, or $(0.38) per share, for the first quarter of 2008, and a net loss of $12.9 million, or ($0.43) per share, for the second quarter of 2007.

Cash, cash equivalents and short term investments as of June 30, 2008 were $26.4 million. While the Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2008 reflects gross proceeds of $25 million from the first tranche of its $43 million private placement, it does not include the impact of the additional $18 million from the second tranche, which closed on August 1, 2008.

As of the end of the second quarter of 2008, NxStage had increased the number of centers with greater than 10 patients to a total of 67, representing a 22% increase when compared with the first quarter of 2008 and 91% increase when compared with the second quarter of 2007.

"We executed on the strategic initiatives outlined last quarter, further solidifying a business model focused on three target markets, and delivering both improved underlying operations and financial results," stated Jeffrey H. Burbank, President and Chief Executive Officer of NxStage Medical. "We remain confident in our ability to grow revenue and achieve profitability in the longer term, creating greater value for our shareholders."

Recent Highlights

-- On August 1, 2008, the Company completed a $43 million private

placement of its common stock and warrants.

-- In July 2008, the Company announced access to demographic and outcomes

information for its growing U.S. daily home hemodialysis patient

population, including the following data points:

-- Survival and transplant rates are notably higher among the NxStage

patient population undergoing home daily therapy vs. reported

figures for conventional, less frequent dialysis treatment. NxStage

patients on home daily hemodialysis experienced a better than 50%

reduction in expected mortality compared to the overall U.S.

hemodialysis patient population. This observed difference was

statistically significant (P<0.0001).

-- Patients of varied size, age, vascular access type, and geographic

location are participating in home daily hemodialysis, indicating

its broad applicability.

-- 92% of the U.S. dialysis population resides within 60 miles of a

center offering NxStage home hemodialysis training, and nearly 80%

are within 30 miles. This indicates that geographic barriers to

initiating daily home hemodialysis are being addressed.

-- In July 2008, NxStage elected Jonathan Silverstein, a General Partner

of OrbiMed Advisors, LLC, to its Board of Directors in connection with

the recently announced private placement.

-- In June 2008, Jeff Smith joined the Company as Vice President and

General Manager, Home Market.


For the third quarter of 2008, the Company expects revenue to be in the range of $30 to $32 million. The Company also expects a net loss in the range of $13.5 to $14.5 million or ($0.30) to ($0.32) per share, excluding any accounting impact of its private equity financing, and an Adjusted EBITDA loss in the range of $7.0 to $8.0 million for the third quarter of 2008.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures to supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and may be different from similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA adjusted for stock based-compensation, deferred revenue recognized, and the liability accounting on the private placement recorded as other income (expense)) to understand operational cash usage. The Company believes the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful and supplementary information allowing investors greater transparency to one measure used by management. The non- GAAP financial measures are meant to supplement, and to be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to the most comparable GAAP financial measure below.
