Palomar Medical Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter 2008

BURLINGTON, Mass., Oct. 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2008. Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2008 were $24.2 million, of which $19.2 million were product revenues, $2.8 million were royalty revenues, $1.0 million were funded development revenues, and $1.25 million were other revenues. Third quarter gross margin from product revenues was 65 percent. Income before taxes for the third quarter ended September 30, 2008 was $0.9 million, which included approximately $3.5 million in litigation expenses and a $1.2 million non-cash FAS 123R stock-based compensation expense.

The Company reported net income of $0.6 million, or $0.03 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2008 versus net income of $5.3 million, or $0.28 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2007. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2008, which includes adjustments for the non-cash FAS 123R compensation expense and non-cash taxes, resulted in $2.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, which includes adjustments for back-owed royalties and other revenues, cost of royalty revenues, legal expense reimbursement, non-cash FAS 123R compensation expense, interest on back-owed royalties and fees, and non-cash taxes, resulted in $5.2 million, or $0.27 per diluted share. Please refer to the financial statements included in this news release for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 and 2007.

The Company's balance sheet continues to be strong and includes $128 million in cash and cash equivalents.

Chief Executive Officer Joseph P. Caruso commented, "We were able to achieve many of the milestones we set for ourselves this quarter even in the face of a downturn in the global economy. Total revenues were up as compared to the previous quarter with stable pricing and gross margin. During the quarter, we also started shipping our newest platform system, the Aspire with the laser lipolysis SlimLipo body sculpting system. Some of these first systems were shipped to training sites established around the world. The feedback has been excellent and we expect to benefit greatly from these sites."

Mr. Caruso continued, "We were also pleased with the victory of the Candela lawsuit in Texas. The jury found in our favor against Candela and also invalidated all of the claims of their patent at issue in the case. This was a very expensive suit for us and we are glad to have the costs associated with it behind us."

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.

Palomar is testing many new and exciting applications to further advance the hair removal market and other cosmetic applications.
