Volcano Reports 22 Percent Increase in Second Quarter Medical Segment Revenues and Earnings per share of $0.09

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Volcano Corporation (NASDAQ: VOLC), a leading developer and manufacturer of precision intravascular diagnosis and therapy guidance tools designed to enhance the treatment of coronary and peripheral artery disease, said today that revenues for the second quarter of 2011 increased 14 percent versus the second quarter a year ago in total, including a 22 percent increase in medical segment revenues versus the second quarter a year ago.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2011, Volcano reported revenues of $84.0 million versus revenues of $73.5 million in the second quarter a year ago. The company reported net income on a GAAP basis of $4.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011, versus net income on a GAAP basis of $5.4 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2010.

Year-over-year the company's medical segment revenues increased 22 percent for the first quarter of 2011 and 24 percent for the first half of 2011. Industrial segment revenues in the second quarter declined 59 percent year-over-year and 44 percent in the first half of 2011 versus the first half of 2010 - due to the downturn in the telecom industry.

For the first six months of 2011, Volcano reported revenues of $165.0 million, an 18 percent increase over revenues of $140.0 million in the same period a year ago. The company reported GAAP net income of $6.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2011. This compares with GAAP net income of $1.4 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the same period in 2010.

"During the quarter, we continued to successfully drive our initiatives to achieve market share gains and increase utilization for our core FM (Functional Management) and IVUS (Intravascular Ultrasound) offerings. Year-over-year revenues from the sale of IVUS and FM disposables increased 22 percent and 54 percent, respectively," said Scott Huennekens, president and chief executive officer of Volcano.

"We experienced a solid quarter in Japan as activity in the country is beginning to return to normal levels following the tragic earthquake and tsunami in March. Our IVUS disposable revenues there increased 31 percent year-over-year and we have recently launched enhanced versions of our IVUS and FM disposables, as well as the VIBE® RX Vascular Imaging Balloon Catheter that provides precise, targeted balloon dilation using our intravascular imaging technology," Huennekens added.

"Our continued investments in product development and clinical programs are advancing our long-term growth strategy and fulfilling our goal of being the leading therapy guidance company. We are successfully expanding beyond a diagnosis-only company to becoming a platform company delivering precision guided therapy  of minimally invasive diagnosis and therapy utilizing visualization, physiology and other technologies that could double our potential addressable markets to more than $3.0 billion over the next several years," he continued.

Guidance for 2011

The company said it continues to expect that revenues for fiscal 2011 will be in the range of $342-$347 million. It expects that gross margin for the year will be 65-66 percent. This compares to prior guidance for gross margin of 64-65 percent. It now expects operating expenses to be 58-60 percent of revenues for the year. This compares to prior guidance for operating expenses of 57-59 percent of revenues. The company maintained its guidance for earnings per diluted share of $0.19-$0.21 for 2011.
