Date:4/25/2012

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. and SYDNEY, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HeartWare International, Inc. (Nasdaq: HTWR; ASX: HIN) today announced that NASDAQ has halted trading of the Company's common stock.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Circulatory System Devices Advisory Committee meets today to review HeartWare's Premarket Approval (PMA) application for the HeartWare® Ventricular Assist System as a bridge to heart transplantation for patients with end-stage heart failure.

HeartWare's PMA submission encompasses data from HeartWare's pivotal ADVANCE clinical trial, an FDA approved Investigational Device Exemption study designed to evaluate the HVAD System as a bridge to heart transplantation for patients with end-stage heart failure.  Under ADVANCE, 140 patients at 30 hospitals in the U.S. received the HeartWare investigational device between August 2008 and February 2010.  HeartWare submitted the PMA in December 2010.
