Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial information as

defined by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Regulation G.

Pursuant to the requirements of this regulation, a reconciliation of this

non-GAAP financial information to our financial statements as prepared

under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States

(GAAP) is included in this press release. Non-GAAP financial measures

provide an indication of our performance before certain charges. Our

management believes that in order to properly understand our short-term

and long-term financial trends, investors may wish to consider the impact

of these charges. These charges result from facts and circumstances that

vary in frequency and/or impact on continuing operations. Our management

believes that these items should be excluded when comparing our current

operating results with those of prior periods as the write-off of

deferred debt issuance costs, which resulted from the repayment of

certain debt in connection with our initial public offering, will not

impact future operating results, stock-based compensation is a non-cash

expense, and in-process research and development relates to the costs

associated with the December 2007 acquisition of CardioSpectra, Inc. In

addition, our management uses results of operations before certain

charges to evaluate the operational performance of the company and as a

basis for strategic planning. Investors should note that the non-GAAP

financial measures used by the company may not be the same non-GAAP

financial measures, and may not be calculated in the same manner, as that

of other companies. Investors should consider these non-GAAP measures in

addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial performance measures

in accordance with GAAP.

act of the company's public offering of common stock that was completed in October 2007. The company ended 2007 with $189.1 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term available-for-sale investments. This compares with $95.5 million at the end of 2006. The difference between the two periods reflects the net proceeds of $122.8 million from the company's stock offering in October 2007, and the $25.2 million cash payment related to the CardioSpectra acquisition in December 2007.

"Volcano has continued to demonstrate very strong revenue growth throughout 2007, driven by our growing installed base of IVUS consoles and increased IVUS disposable revenues. Total IVUS console placements in 2007 were 597, an increase of 48 percent versus 404 IVUS console placements in 2006. IVUS disposable revenues in the quarter increased 46 percent versus the same quarter a year ago, including a 28 percent increase in the U.S.," noted Scott Huennekens, president and chief executive officer of Volcano.

"This growth in our IVUS business occurred despite a sluggish global PCI market. We believe the ease of use and integration provided by our s5 family of consoles, along with a growing volume of data demonstrating the value of IVUS in stenting procedures, is driving our increased market presence in the IVUS arena," he added. "We are encouraged by what appear to be recent favorable trends in stenting procedures and believe this will further the growth of our IVUS offerings," he continued.

Last week, the company announced it received 510(k) clearance and a CE Mark for its Revolution rotational IVUS catheter and functional flow reserve (FFR) technology on its s5 family of IVUS consoles, enabling the commercial launch of these offerings in the United States and Europe. The company also expects to have regulatory approval for the Rotational catheter on new s5 consoles in Japan by the second quarter. The company has also recently announced three new partnership agreements. The first is with Cordis Europe that will enable Cordis to offer their customers Volcano IVUS for use in Cypher drug-eluting stent procedures. The second was a marketing agreement with Siemens in Japan under which Siemens will begin selling their Artis and angio systems with the s5i IVUS console. In addition, the company announced a collaboration with General Electric in Japan that will enable GE to offer its INNOVA angiographic systems with Volcano's s5i integrated IVUS technology.

"We are also excited about the potential of our CardioSpectra acquisition and its Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) technology as a complement to our IVUS offerings. Our product development program for this technology is on track and we hope to have our first offering in this area available for launch in the United States and Europe next year," Huennekens said.

"We continue to implement both market development and clinical strategies that we expect to not only broaden the use of IVUS, but also increase our share of the IVUS market," Huennekens said. "Our growth strategy for the year has several key elements, including the launch of our Revolution catheter and FFR on s5 platforms and our console placement programs. We will also continue to capitalize on our partnerships with industry leaders and expand our direct sales force and marketing efforts. Additionally, we are launching two significant clinical trials to augment our already active clinical efforts. Finally, we will explore potential strategic opportunities that can enhance our technology offerings and drive revenue growth. We look forward to a very exciting and successful 2008," he concluded.

For the full year 2007, Volcano reported a net loss of $26.6 million, or $0.66 per share. This compares with a net loss of $8.6 million, or $0.41 per share, in 2006. Included in the results for 2006 is a write-off of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per share, related to deferred debt issuance costs as a result of the company's initial public offering. Excluding the in-process research and development charge of $26.2 million and stock-based compensation expense of $6.7 million, Volcano reported net income of $6.3 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for 2007. Excluding stock-based compensation expense of $3.2 million, and the write-off of $1.2 million, the company reported a net loss of $4.2 million, or $0.20 per share, in 2006-a net improvement of $10.5 million.

Guidance for 2008

The company said it expects 2008 revenues will be in the range of approximately $158-$162 million, an increase of approximately 21-24 percent over 2007. Gross margin for 2008 is expected to be in the range of 60-61 percent, although the company expects to exit 2008 with margins in the range of 63-64 percent. Operating expenses, including stock-based compensation expense and approximately $3.1 million of intangible amortization, are expected to be 64-65 percent of revenues.

On a GAAP basis, the company expects to report a net loss of approximately $0.02-$0.04 per share, although Volcano expects to begin being profitable on a GAAP basis in the fourth quarter. Excluding stock-based compensation expense of approximately $10.2 million, Volcano expects to report net income of $0.16 to $0.18 per diluted share. Weighted average shares outstanding in 2008 are expected to be approximately 47.4 million basic shares and 50.1 million shares on a diluted basis.
