Conference Call Scheduled for Today, July 1, at 9:00 a.m. ET
IRVINE, Calif., July 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Endologix, Inc. (Nasdaq:ELGX), developer and marketer of innovative treatments for aortic disorders, announced today preliminary unaudited revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. Endologix anticipates second quarter 2013 global revenue of approximately $34.0 million, representing approximately 33% growth as compared to the second quarter of 2012 and 14% growth as compared to the first quarter of 2013.
The Company anticipates U.S. revenue to be approximately $26.3 million in the second quarter 2013, representing approximately 23% growth compared to $21.4 million for the same quarter in 2012. International revenue is anticipated to be approximately $7.6 million in the second quarter 2013, representing approximately 81% growth compared to $4.2 million for the same quarter in 2012.
John McDermott, Endologix Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We achieved strong sales growth during the second quarter, as a result of the excellent outcomes achieved by physicians with the AFX® Endovascular AAA System and the support provided by our sales and clinical people. Accordingly, we have raised our revenue guidance for the year and remain confident in our long-term outlook for sales growth of approximately 20% or greater year-over-year over the next several years."
Ventana™ Fenestrated System Program Update
On April 30, 2013, Endologix announced plans to temporarily suspend enrollment in its Ventana U.S. IDE clinical trial and delay the limited market introduction of Ventana in Europe in order to evaluate a higher than expected number of re-interventions. The Company has completed this initial evaluation and has identified training and design enhancements that are expected to reduce the re-intervention rate and improve clinical outcomes. In order to validate these design enhancements, the Company will conduct testing and meet with regulatory agencies to determine the requirements and commercialization timelines. Accordingly, the Company does not anticipate that it will restart enrollment in the Ventana U.S. IDE clinical trial or begin the limited market introduction of Ventana in Europe before the end of the year.
Based on the preliminary second quarter 2013 revenue results and recent developments, Endologix is updating its full year 2013 financial guidance as follows:
Revenue: $128 million to $134 million, representing growth of 21% to 26% from 2012, compared to previous guidance of $126 million to $133 million.
Adjusted Net (Loss) Per Share (non-GAAP and defined below): $(0.18) to $(0.22) per share, compared to previous guidance of $(0.14) to $(0.17).
Adjusted EBITDA Per share (non-GAAP and defined below): $(0.02) to $0.02 per share, compared to previous guidance of $0.01 to $0.05 per share.
Cash Flow: Endologix continues to anticipate generating positive cash flows from operations in the second half of 2013.

Endologix, Inc. develops, manufactures and markets minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders. The company's primary focus is endovascular stent grafts for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). AAA is a weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body, resulting in a balloon-like enlargement. Once AAA develops, it continues to enlarge and, if left untreated, becomes increasingly susceptible to rupture. The overall patient mortality rate for ruptured AAA is approximately 75%, making it a leading cause of death in the U.S. Additional information can be found on Endologix's website at www.endologix.com.
The Nellix® EndoVascular Aneurysm Sealing System has obtained CE Mark in the EU, but is not approved in the United States for either investigational use or commercial sale. The Ventana™ Fenestrated System is an investigational device in the United States and has obtained CE Mark in the EU.

Endologix's management believes that the non-GAAP measures of (1) "Adjusted Net Income (Loss)", (2) "Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Per Share", (3) "Adjusted EBITDA", and (4) "Adjusted EBITDA per Share" measures enhance an investor's overall understanding of Endologix's financial and operating performance and its future prospects by (i) being more reflective of core operating performance; (ii) providing enhanced measures of progress towards generating positive cash flows from operations; and (iii) being more comparable with financial results over various periods. Endologix's management uses these financial measures for strategic decision making, forecasting future financial results, and evaluating current period financial and operating performance.
