                   Volcano Announces First Quarter Results

PR Newswire

SAN DIEGO, May 2, 2013

SAN DIEGO, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Volcano Corporation (Nasdaq: VOLC), a
leading developer and manufacturer of precision guided therapy tools designed
to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of coronary and peripheral vascular
disease, today reported results for the first quarter of 2013.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, Volcano reported revenues of $93.2
million, an increase of three percent on a reported basis versus the same
period a year ago and eight percent on a constant currency basis after
adjusting for a five percent negative impact from foreign currency. Medical
segment revenues increased four percent and nine percent on a reported and
constant currency basis, respectively.

The company reported a net loss on a GAAP basis of $3.2 million, or $0.06 per
share, in the first quarter of 2013, versus net income of $271,000, or $0.00
per diluted share, in the same period a year ago. The results for the first
quarter of 2013 include net interest expense of $6.2 million versus $1.2
million a year ago, reflecting the company's convertible debt offering
completed in the fourth quarter of 2012. In addition, the company recorded
other income of $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2013 related to the
proceeds from the sale of a strategic investment. The company also recorded an
exchange rate loss of $778,000 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to
$175,000 in the first quarter a year ago.

Excluding acquisition related items, amortization of intangibles and non-cash
interest expense on convertible notes, net of tax, the company reported
non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.02.

"Our results for the quarter reflect continued solid growth for our FFR
(Fractional Flow Reserve) disposable revenues, which increased 33 percent and
36 percent year-over-year on a reported and constant currency basis,
respectively. However, our intravascular imaging business continued to be
impacted negatively by pressure on PCI's, especially in the U.S.," said Scott
Huenekkens, president and chief executive officer of Volcano.

Guidance for 2013

The company provided updated guidance for 2013. Based on current foreign
currency exchange rates, it now expects revenues on a reported basis of
$394.0-$400.0 million. The new expectations for revenues on a reported basis
compare with prior expectations of $406.0-$412.0 million. The company said
roughly two-thirds of the reduction in expectations for revenues on a reported
basis reflects the impact of foreign currency exchange rates, with the balance
due to reduced expectations around PCI volume. The company said it expects
revenues in 2013 on a constant currency basis will be in the range of
$418.0-$424.0 million.

With respect to its outlook for 2013 on a reported basis, the company expects
gross margins will be in the range of 64.5-65.0 percent and that operating
expenses will be 65-66 percent of revenues. On a reported basis, the company
expects a net loss on a GAAP basis of $0.26-$0.28 per share. This assumes an
expected tax benefit of approximately $0.20 per share, based on an annual tax
rate of 38.5 percent, combined with a $1 million R&D tax credit from 2012 that
was recorded in the first  quarter. On a reported basis, the company expects
non-GAAP net income of $0.03-$0.05 per diluted share in 2013. Non-GAAP results
exclude acquisition-related expenses, amortization of intangibles and non-cash
interest expense, and assume an effective tax rate of 38 percent for the GAAP
to non-GAAP adjustments. The company expects weighted average basic shares in
2013 will be approximately 54.4 million shares and approximately 56.2 million
shares on a diluted basis.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be
considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial
information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The company uses
non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and
as a means to compare period-to-period results. The company believes that they
provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall
understanding of operating results and future prospects, and allow for greater
transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial
and operational decision making.

Constant Currency Basis Revenue Changes: Volcano reports changes in revenue on
a constant currency basis, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Volcano
believes that investors' understanding of the company's short-term and
long-term financial results is enhanced by taking into consideration the
impact of foreign currency translation on revenue. In addition, Volcano's
management uses results of operations before currency translation to evaluate
the operational performance of Volcano and as a basis for strategic planning.

Volcano reports its expectations of earnings per share performance excluding
certain expenses described below; for additional details please see the
"Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP EPS Guidance" table in this press release.
This accompanying table has more details on the GAAP financial measures that
are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related
reconciliations between these financial measures.

Exclusion of Acquisition-Related Expenses: Volcano excludes
acquisition-related expenses because it does not consider these
acquisition-related costs and adjustments to be related to the organic
continuing operations of the acquired businesses and are generally not
relevant to assessing or estimating the long-term performance of the acquired
assets. In addition, the size, complexity and/or volume of past acquisitions,
which often drive the magnitude of acquisition-related costs, may not be
indicative of the size, complexity and/or volume of future acquisitions.

Exclusion of Amortization of Intangibles: Volcano excludes amortization of
intangibles because it is a non-cash expense relating primarily to
acquisitions. At the time of an acquisition, the intangible assets of the
acquired company, such as technology and supplier agreements, are valued and
amortized over their estimated lives. Volcano believes that since intangibles
represent efforts of the acquired company to build value prior to acquisition,
Volcano management eliminates the impact of the amortization when evaluating
its current operating performance.

Exclusion of Non-Cash Interest Expense: In addition to disclosing the
financial statement impact of the authoritative guidance for convertible debt
accounting, Volcano management believes that excluding the impact of this
authoritative guidance because it is non-cash in nature, may provide
meaningful supplemental information regarding elements of the company's
borrowing costs in order to properly understand its operational performance
and liquidity, and facilitates comparisons to competitors' results.
