IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/06/14 --  BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ:
BIOL), the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of dental
lasers, including the Company's proprietary WaterLase(R), and a
pioneer in laser surgery in other medical specialties, as well as a
distributor of digital radiography and GALAXY BioMill(TM) CAD/CAM
systems for dentistry, today announced that, based on a preliminary
review of its financial performance for the fourth quarter ended
December 31, 2013, the Company expects to report net revenue of
approximately $15.25 million. 
"Based on our preliminary unaudited results, the fourth quarter ended
December 31, 2013 is shaping up to be BIOLASE's(R) second strongest
revenue quarter since the termination of our global distribution
arrangement with Henry Schein in August 2010," said Federico
Pignatelli, Chairman and CEO. "Fiscal 2013 has been a year of
transition and consolidation for BIOLASE after two years of rapid
growth. We have broadened our dental product line with a new diode
laser line, the EPIC(TM), and grown our BIOLASE DaVinci Imaging(TM)
business, which included the introduction of the GALAXY BioMill
chair-side milling machine. Together with our NewTom(TM) cone beam
and digital radiography products and 3Shape Trios(R) intraoral
scanners, BIOLASE now offers the most diverse and complete line of
high-tech dental product offerings in North America, as well as
several international markets. 
"We invested heavily in fiscal 2013 in order to increase our dental
product offerings and build the infrastructure necessary to support
this expansion. This was achieved while we continued the expansion of
our technology into other medical markets, as well. We believe that
our breakthrough WaterLase and diode technologies, coupled with our
other high tech products, have the potential to greatly improve the
clinical outcomes of a variety of surgical procedures in multiple
medical fields. 
"While 2013 has seen higher expenses and lower gross margins for
BIOLASE, the result is a stronger foundation for our core dental
business as we enter 2014. We do not expect these higher
expansion-related expenses to continue in 2014. Further, we are also
extremely enthusiastic about the potential that our highly promising
new preclinical laser, code named DRAGON, gives us to enter several
new medical markets, and the revenue opportunities that go along with
them," concluded Pignatelli.
