ADVANCED MEDICAL OPTICS ANNOUNCES
FOURTH-QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2005 RESULTS
Sales Increase 24% in 2005
(SANTA ANA, CA), February 14, 2006 Advanced Medical Optics, Inc. (AMO) [NYSE: EYE], a global leader in ophthalmic surgical devices and eye care products, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2005.
AMO reported 2005 net sales of $920.7 million, a 24.1 percent increase over 2004. This reflected primarily the acquisition of VISX, Incorporated in May 2005 and the Pfizer ophthalmic surgical business in June 2004, as well as increased sales of its technologically advanced products, and the unfavorable impact of the companys accelerated rationalization of non-strategic eye care and cataract products.
For 2005, AMO reported a net loss of $453.2 million, or a loss of $8.28 per share, compared to a net loss of $129.4 million, or a loss of $3.89 per share in 2004. Per-share results for 2005 were reduced by $9.73 due to the combined effect of after-tax charges of $536.9 million and the $0.43 effect of dilutive instruments. Similarly, per-share results for 2004 were reduced by $5.13 due to the combined effect of after-tax charges of $175.8 million and the $0.62 effect of dilutive instruments. The losses in both years were due primarily to charges related to acquisitions and recapitalizations, and the companys product rationalization and business repositioning actions in 2005. The charges were partially offset in 2005 by unrealized gains on derivative instruments and tax benefits related to repatriation of foreign earnings under the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004.
With the close of 2005, we finished our third full year as an independent company and, in this time, nearly doubled our sales and set AMO on a new and more promising course, said Jim Mazzo, president and chief executive officer.
