Palomar Medical Reports Financial Results for Second Quarter 2009

BURLINGTON, Mass., July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: PMTI), a leading researcher and developer of light-based systems for cosmetic treatments, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009. Revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 were $15.0 million, of which $12.1 million were product revenues, $1.3 million were royalty revenues, $0.4 million were funded development revenues, and $1.25 million were other revenues. Second quarter gross margin from product revenues was 57 percent. Loss before taxes for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009 was $0.3 million, which included approximately $0.2 million in litigation expenses and a $0.8 million non-cash FAS 123R stock-based compensation expense. The Company reported net loss of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2009. The Company had positive cash flow from operations of $3.6 million and the balance sheet continues to be strong with $112 million in net cash and available-for-sale investments.

Chief Executive Officer Joseph P. Caruso commented, "We are encouraged this quarter by some early signs of improved financial performance. Our revenue, gross margin and bottom line all improved as compared to the previous quarter and the negative trends seen throughout 2008. The overall downturn in the economy remains the biggest factor influencing growth in the short term."

Mr. Caruso continued, "We had several major accomplishments this quarter. The FDA cleared our home-use wrinkle removal laser, the first of its kind, as part of our collaboration with Johnson & Johnson. We believe consumer applications for our core technology provide great opportunities. With regard to our hair removal patents, we won two opposition hearings before the European Patent Office which upheld the patents as both novel and inventive and the U.S. Patent Office confirmed the validity of 56 claims in the re-examination of U.S. Patent No. 5,735,844. Accordingly, we have filed a motion to re-start our patent infringement lawsuit against Candela and believe we are in a stronger position now than prior to the re-examination. These events strengthen our strategic position and are important for the long-term growth of our business."

About Palomar Medical Technologies Inc: Palomar is a leading researcher and developer of light-based systems for cosmetic treatments. Palomar pioneered the optical hair removal field, when, in 1997, it introduced the first high-powered laser hair removal system. Since then, many of the major advances in light-based hair removal have been based on Palomar technology. In December 2006, Palomar became the first company to receive a 510(k) over-the-counter (OTC) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a new, patented, home-use, light-based hair removal device. OTC clearance allows the product to be marketed and sold directly to consumers without a prescription. There are now millions of light-based cosmetic procedures performed around the world every year in physician offices, clinics, spas and salons. Palomar is testing many new and exciting applications to further advance the hair removal market and other cosmetic applications. Palomar is focused on developing proprietary light-based technology for introduction to the mass markets. Palomar has granted The Procter & Gamble Company a non-exclusive License Agreement to certain patents, technology and FDA documents related to the home-use, light-based hair removal field for women. In addition, Palomar has an exclusive development and license agreement with Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies to develop and potentially commercialize home-use, light-based devices for reducing or reshaping body fat including cellulite, reducing the appearance of skin aging, and reducing or preventing acne.
