Revenue for the first quarter of 2012 increased 13 percent to $57.0 million, compared with revenue of $50.6 million for the first quarter of 2011.  The higher revenues were driven by increased adoption of the NxStage System One.

Home revenue for the first quarter of 2012 increased 13 percent to a record $29.6 million compared with revenues of $26.0 million for the first quarter of 2011. 

Critical Care revenue increased 32 percent to $9.8 million for the first quarter of 2012 compared with revenues of $7.4 million for the first quarter of 2011.  Revenue in the In-Center market increased to $17.6 million for the first quarter of 2012 compared with revenues of $17.1 million for the first quarter of 2011. 

"NxStage delivered another solid quarter in Q1, reflecting strong, healthy underlying trends across our business," stated Jeffrey H. Burbank, Chief Executive Officer of NxStage Medical, Inc. "More importantly, we're advancing key strategic initiatives designed to strengthen and expand NxStage's growth and add long-term shareholder value.  We remain confident and are reaffirming our guidance for 2012." 

NxStage reported a net loss of $5.1 million or $(0.09) per share for the first quarter of 2012 compared with a net loss of $6.0 million or $(0.11) per share for the first quarter of 2011. 

For the first 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 $1.8 million compared with $1.1 million for the first quarter of 2011.  (See the exhibits for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure.)

Separately, the Company announced that Asahi Kasei Medical Co., Ltd. converted all of its $45.2 million outstanding debt and accrued interest with NxStage, into newly issued common stock shares of NxStage at a price of $18.41 per share on May 4, 2012.  The Companies are also collaborating to develop the Japanese market opportunity for the NxStage System One.

"This transaction speaks to the continued level of confidence that Asahi has in NxStage, and puts NxStage in its strongest financial position in its history. The NxStage brand has never been stronger, and with this we believe we are well positioned to go after compelling opportunities ahead," stated Burbank.

Guidance:
For the second quarter of 2012, the Company is forecasting revenues to be between $57 million and $58 million, a net loss in the range of $5.0 million to $6.0 million, including $1.0 million for the write-off of the unamortized debt discount related to the Asahi debt conversion, or $(0.09) to $(0.10) per share, and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $1.0 million to $2.0 million

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.
