HeartWare Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results
- International Revenue Growth of 40% Highlights Third Quarter Performance -

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. and SYDNEY, Nov. 9, 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 $22.9 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to revenue of $21.3 million for the same period of 2011.  Revenue from international markets increased approximately 40% to $19.2 million in the third quarter of 2012, from $13.7 million in the third quarter of 2011.  U.S. revenue, which is presently derived from clinical trial activities, was $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $7.6 million in the third quarter of 2011, due to the completed enrollment of the Company's Destination Therapy clinical trial in the second quarter of this year.  Currency fluctuations decreased revenue by nine percent in the third quarter compared to the same period in 2011.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, revenues increased approximately 31% to $78.3 million, compared to $59.7 million in the first nine months of 2011, supported by 60% commercial revenue growth internationally.  Currency fluctuations decreased revenue by seven percent compared to the same period in 2011. 

"We are pleased to have maintained strong international growth, particularly during the summer months of Europe, as 214 HeartWare® Ventricular Assist Systems were sold outside the U.S. in the third quarter of 2012, a 51% increase compared to 142 in the third quarter of last year," noted Doug Godshall, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "With the completion of enrollment in our Destination Therapy study in the United States, domestic revenue was primarily limited to the remaining slots in the Continued Access Protocol in the Bridge-to-Transplant indication.  As a result, 42 of the 256 global units sales generated during the third quarter of 2012 were from the U.S.  Globally more than 2,500 patients have now received the HeartWare System at one of the 103 international hospital sites or 50 clinical sites in the U.S.

"Following the positive recommendation of the Circulatory System Devices Advisory Committee in the second quarter, 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," added Mr. Godshall.  "Our team has been diligent in preparation for anticipated launch, and we look forward to the opportunity to advance the global commercialization of the HeartWare System and HVAD® Pump."

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $35.1 million, as compared to $23.5 million in the same period of 2011.  Research and development expense was $21.4 million for the third quarter of 2012, as compared to $12.7 million in the same period of 2011.  Increased development costs are a result of continuing clinical trial costs and research and development costs related to advancing HeartWare's pipeline technologies, including the MVAD® platform and a fully implantable system, as well as other early research initiatives. 

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $13.8 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $10.8 million in the third quarter of 2011.  The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses is related to continued growth supporting commercial activity outside of the U.S., preparation for anticipated commercial launch in the U.S., and an overall increase in corporate infrastructure to support the Company's rapid growth. 

Net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $25.0 million, or a $1.75 loss per basic and diluted share, compared to a $14.0 million net loss, or a loss of $1.00 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company recorded a net loss of $66.6 million, or a $4.70 loss per basic and diluted share, compared to a $33.5 million net loss, or a loss of $2.41 per basic and diluted share, in the first nine months of 2011.

At September 30, 2012, the Company had $117.6 million of cash, cash equivalents and investments.
