Company Announces Plan to Enhance Operating Leverage by Reducing Fixed Costs

(SANTA ANA, CA), February 14, 2008 – Advanced Medical Optics, Inc. (AMO) [NYSE: EYE], today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2007, revised financial guidance for 2008 and announced plans to reduce fixed costs.

The company’s fourth-quarter 2007 net sales rose 25.0% to $304.6 million on organic growth, the acquisitions of IntraLase Corp. and WaveFront Sciences, Inc.; and includes a 5.3% increase related to foreign currency impacts. On a pro forma basis, the company’s fourth-quarter sales rose 7.3%. The pro forma sales growth rate reflects comparisons that include the IntraLase and WaveFront Sciences performance as if the acquisitions had occurred in all periods presented. Fourth-quarter sales growth was partially offset by lost sales and returns associated with the company’s May 2007 contact lens care solution recall.

AMO reported a fourth-quarter net loss under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) of $12.3 million, or a net loss of $0.20 per share, compared to a net loss of $7.6 million, or a net loss of $0.13 per share, in 2006’s fourth quarter. These results included the impacts of the November 2006 and May 2007 recalls. The fourth-quarter 2007 results also included the following items, which combined to increase the net loss per share by $0.17:

 

   

$10.7 million in pre-tax charges related to integration of acquisitions.

 

   

$3.4 million pre-tax loss on derivative instruments.

 

   

Estimated tax effects related to the items mentioned above, totaling $3.8 million.

“Our fourth-quarter performance represented a strong finish to 2007, in which we advanced our strategy and moved aggressively to overcome challenges,” said Jim Mazzo, chairman and chief
