SHENZHEN, China, Jan. 7, 2013

SHENZHEN, China, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/-- Mindray Medical
International Limited ("Mindray," NYSE: MR), a leading developer, manufacturer
and marketer of medical devices worldwide, today announced selected
preliminary, unaudited results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.
The company also provided net revenue guidance for 2013.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, Mindray expects net revenue to be
approximately US$1,056 million, representing a year-over-year growth of
approximately 20%.

Based on the estimated full-year revenue, the company anticipates 2012
non-GAAP net income to be approximately US$207 million, growing approximately
16% year-over-year. The non-GAAP net income figure excludes the tax benefits
related to the key software enterprise status ($7.6 million recognized in the
first quarter of 2011) and assumes a corporate income tax rate of 15%
applicable to the Shenzhen subsidiary.

This year, Mindray anticipates its net revenue to grow at least 17%
year-over-year. Full-year guidance for 2013 will be provided in the fourth
quarter and full-year 2012 earnings announcement.

"In 2012, we continued to deliver solid financial results. Strong sales in
China and certain key emerging markets drove our top-line performance and we
further optimized our operations to improve cash flow generation. We also
launched 10 new products and completed four more acquisitions. We want to
thank our employees for their hard work that helped us execute our growth
strategies successfully this past year," commented Mr. Li Xiting, Mindray's
President and Chief Executive Officer.

"This year, we expect our revenue to grow at least 17% year-over-year, with
China and other emerging markets as the primary growth contributors. Overall,
we plan to increase our market penetration by launching another seven to 10
new products as well as strengthening our sales, marketing and service
capabilities in key markets. We aim to continue expanding our product
portfolio through internal R&D and external M&A and collaboration
opportunities. In addition to executing our growth plans, we will also
continue to focus on profitability," he said.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Mindray provides gross profit, selling expenses, general and administrative
expenses, R&D expenses, operating income, net income and earnings per share on
a non-GAAP basis that excludes dispute related legal fees, dispute charges,
share-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangible assets, all
net of related tax impact, as well as EBITDA to enable investors to better
assess the company's operating performance. The non-GAAP measures described by
the company are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures.

The company has provided anticipation for the 2012 full-year net income on a
non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP net income represents net income reported in
accordance with GAAP, adjusted for the effects of dispute related legal fees,
dispute charges, share-based compensation and amortization of acquired
intangible assets, all net of related tax impact.

The company computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent
method from quarter to quarter. The company notes that these measures may not
be calculated on the same basis of similar measures used by other companies.
Readers are cautioned not to view non-GAAP results on a stand-alone basis or
as a substitute for results under GAAP, or as being comparable to results
reported or forecasted by other companies, and should refer to the
reconciliation of GAAP results with non-GAAP results for the year ended
2011and 2012 respectively.
