HeartWare Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. and SYDNEY, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HeartWare International, Inc. (NASDAQ: HTWR; ASX: HIN), a leading innovator of less invasive, miniaturized circulatory support technologies that are revolutionizing the treatment of advanced heart failure, today announced revenue of $29.1 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.  This represents a 42 percent increase from $20.4 million in revenue for the same period of 2011.  Revenue from international markets increased to $24.9 million in the second quarter of 2012, from $14.1 million in the second quarter of 2011, a 76 percent increase.  Changes in foreign currency rates unfavorably impacted revenue by approximately $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to the second quarter of 2011.

"During the second quarter, we generated global sales for the HeartWare® Ventricular Assist System of 318 units, up from 226 units in the second quarter of 2011.  International markets accounted for 276 units sold and approximately 86 percent of our 2012 second quarter revenue, reflecting strong support of our 100 customer sites in 26 countries," stated Doug Godshall, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Following the positive recommendation of the Circulatory System Devices Advisory Committee in April, we have been focused on working with the FDA as it finalizes its review of our Premarket Approval (PMA) application for U.S. commercialization of the HeartWare Ventricular Assist System as a bridge to heart transplantation.

"In May, we announced the early completion of enrollment in our 450-patient ENDURANCE Destination Therapy study, resulting in an expected gap in U.S. clinical enrollment in the second quarter.  As we proceed through the two-year patient follow-up period for the trial, we have requested a Continued Access Protocol allocation for destination therapy from the FDA," added Mr. Godshall.  "Our second quarter results also reflect increased investment in our technology pipeline, particularly our MVAD® System for which human clinical testing is expected this year, as well as ramping of personnel in anticipation of expanded commercialization."

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $34.2 million, as compared to $20.2 million in the same period of 2011.  Research and development expense was $20.0 million for the second quarter of 2012, as compared to $10.3 million in the same period of 2011, primarily attributable to the Company's continuing clinical trial costs and research and development costs related to advancing HeartWare's pipeline technologies.  Selling, general and administrative expenses were $14.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $9.9 million in the second quarter of 2011.  The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses is related to a higher volume of commercial activity outside of the U.S. and an enhanced corporate infrastructure to support overall growth and anticipated commercialization in the U.S.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $22.8 million, or a $1.61 loss per basic and diluted share, compared to a $10.1 million net loss, or a loss of $0.73 per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011.  For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded a net loss of $41.6 million, or a $2.94 loss per basic and diluted share, compared to a $19.5 million net loss, or a loss of $1.40 per basic and diluted share, in the first half of 2011.

At June 30, 2012, the Company had $131.0 million of cash, cash equivalents and investments, as compared to $144.5 million at March 31, 2012 and $163.2 million at December 31, 2011.
