Revenue for the second quarter of 2012 increased 10% to $59.0 million, compared with revenue of $53.8 million for the second quarter of 2011.  The higher revenues were driven by increased adoption of the NxStage System One™.

Home revenue for the second quarter of 2012 increased 14% to a record $30.7 million compared with revenues of $27.0 million for the second quarter of 2011. 

"Home and more frequent hemodialysis with the System One is great therapy that has been consistently reported to give patients access to a much richer and longer life.   We continue to show that our therapy can benefit patients, providers and payors," stated Jeffrey H. Burbank, Chief Executive Officer of NxStage. "As a result, we continue to break down the barriers to adoption and deliver strong revenue growth consistent with our expectations."

Critical Care revenue increased 9% to $9.4 million for the second quarter of 2012 compared with revenues of $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2011.  Revenue in the In-Center market was $18.2 million for the second quarter of 2012. 

"Our results in the second quarter reflect solid and consistent progress. We achieved record revenues, a 300 bps improvement in gross margin, and advanced our robust product pipeline," continued Burbank. "In sum, our growth strategy remains on track and we remain confident in our outlook for 2012."

NxStage reported a net loss of $5.1 million or $(0.09) per share for the second quarter of 2012 compared with a net loss of $5.6 million or $(0.10) per share for the second quarter of 2011.  The net loss for the second quarter of 2012 includes the impact of $1.0 million for the write-off of unamortized debt discount related to the Asahi debt conversion that occurred in May 2012.

For the second quarter of 2012, the Company reported Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted for stock-based compensation, deferred revenue recognized, manufacturing transition costs and other non-cash expenses, of $1.7 million compared with $1.8 million for the second quarter of 2011.  (See the exhibits for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure.)

Separately, the Company announced that the European regulatory authority has approved a new feature to automate the administration of bolus for use in the EU.  Burbank concluded, "This approval enables us to further advance the simplicity and safety of the System One in Europe. This is an amazing accomplishment to be able to take tap water, purify it, add concentrate, filter it, and infuse it; effectively our system produces fluid similar to that produced in a pharmaceutical plant right in a patient's home from tap water."

Guidance:

For the third quarter of 2012, the Company is forecasting revenues to be between $60.0 million and $61.0 million, a net loss in the range of $3.5 million to $4.5 million, or $(0.06) to $(0.08) per share, and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $1.5 million to $2.5 million.  The Company is reaffirming its full year 2012 guidance, which includes Asahi dialyzer sales.

This release contains a non-GAAP financial measure.  A reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP financial measure to its most comparable GAAP financial measure is in the exhibits to this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

The Company discloses a certain non-GAAP financial measure to supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis. This non-GAAP measure is not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and may be different from similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measure disclosed by the Company is not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA adjusted for stock based-compensation, deferred revenue recognized, manufacturing transition costs and other non-cash expenses) to understand operational cash usage.  The Company believes the non-GAAP financial measure provides useful and supplementary information allowing investors greater transparency to one measure used by management.  The non-GAAP financial measure is meant to supplement, and to be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures.  The non-GAAP financial measure is reconciled to the most comparable GAAP financial measure below.
