(SANTA ANA, CA), May 1, 2008 – Advanced Medical Optics, Inc. (AMO) [NYSE: EYE] today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2008.

First-quarter net sales rose 20.7% to $303.7 million, including a 6.5% increase related to foreign currency exchange rate effects. On a pro forma basis, AMO’s first-quarter sales rose 4.4%, reflecting a comparison that includes the IntraLase performance as if this acquisition had occurred at the beginning of all periods presented.

AMO’s first-quarter net earnings under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) were $6.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $12.1 million, or $0.20 per diluted share in the same period last year. First-quarter 2008 results included the following pre-tax items, which combined to reduce net earnings per diluted share by an estimated $0.11:

 

   

$11.9 million in restructuring charges associated with manufacturing relocation, workforce reductions and facility consolidation initiatives;

 

   

$3.3 million gain on the sale of an investment; and

 

   

$2.1 million unrealized loss on derivative instruments.

“Our first-quarter results reflect our focus on delivering sustainable, profitable growth and cash flow,” said Jim Mazzo, AMO chairman and chief executive officer. “Our global refractive business achieved growth despite a soft domestic LASIK market brought on by weak economic conditions. We launched AMO’s first-ever artificial tear and prepared to introduce exciting new innovations in our refractive and cataract businesses in future quarters. Our multipurpose solution franchise continued to recover, posting sequential sales and market share gains, and helping to return our eye care business to profitability.”
