(SANTA ANA, CA), August 4, 2008 – Advanced Medical Optics, Inc. (AMO) [NYSE: EYE] today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2008.

The company’s second-quarter net sales rose 22.6% to $320.5 million, including a 7.2% increase related to foreign currency exchange rate effects. Second-quarter net earnings under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) were $22.0 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $166.8 million, or a loss of $2.78 per share in the same period last year. Second-quarter 2008 results included the following pre-tax items, which combined to increase net earnings per diluted share by an estimated $0.11:



$20.5 million net gain on legal contingencies associated with a cross-licensing agreement.



$11.0 million in restructuring charges associated with manufacturing relocation, workforce reductions and facility consolidation initiatives, including a $1.8 million charge for accelerated depreciation of leasehold improvements recorded in SG&A expense.



$2.7 million unrealized gain on derivative instruments and a $1.3 million loss on an investment.

“AMO’s second-quarter results showed the strength and resiliency of our global business, despite the declines in domestic refractive volumes brought on by the weakening U.S. economy,” said Jim Mazzo, AMO chairman and chief executive officer. “The value and benefit of expanding our refractive business internationally came into focus as strong refractive sales outside the U.S. helped to partially offset domestic challenges. Our cataract business took advantage of powerful new technologies and delivered solid performance domestically and internationally. And, we continued to improve the sales and profitability of our eye care franchise.”
