Date:3/4/2010

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended January 2, 2010.

For the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company recorded a net profit of $0.5 million or $0.06 per diluted share compared to a net loss of $6.5 million or $(0.74) per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2008. Gross margins improved to 45.6% from 37.5%, although revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $11.6 million, a 4.8% decrease from the $12.1 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2008. For the fiscal year ended January 2, 2010, the Company recorded a net profit of $2.6 million or $0.29 per diluted share compared to a net loss of $7.4 million or $(0.84) per diluted share reported for 2008. Gross margins improved to 46.9% from 40.6%, although revenue for the full year 2009 was $43.2 million, an 11.0% decrease from the $48.5 million reported for 2008.

In 2008, the fourth quarter and full year results included an impairment charge of $5.4 million for write down of goodwill and intangible assets which represented $0.61 per diluted share.

"Our cash generation remains excellent. We have generated $6.8 million in cash from operations for the year. Our cash balance now stands at $9.4 million and we have reduced our bank debt from $6.0 million to $3.5 million" stated Mr. Theodore A. Boutacoff, President and CEO. "We continue to see the benefits of creating a very efficient and scalable business."

"We have recorded our fourth consecutive quarter of profitability. Our operating income for the year was $2.5 million an all time high for the Company, compared to 2008 where the Company had an operating loss of $2.2 million (excluding impairment charges). This is an outstanding achievement especially given the current economy. We are particularly pleased with the improvement in gross margins and the fact that we have sustained these improvements throughout the year, and we continue to control our operating expenses. In summary, we met our 2009 objectives of being cash flow positive, driving to profitability and positioning ourselves for future growth."

"During the fourth quarter we saw a very steady order rate for Ophthalmology Equipment which adds to our confidence for 2010. We see broadening interest in our recently introduced IQ 577 yellow laser. These facts, together with other initiatives we are undertaking, provide new growth opportunities for 2010. Looking forward, based on our performance for 2009, our financial model has our gross margins in the range of 45% to 50% with operating expenses between 40% and 42% for the year; and we are making progress towards our long term goals of 55% gross margins and 40% operating expenses."
