Endologix Reports 10% and 12% Revenue Growth for the
Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014

Includes 12% Constant Currency Revenue Growth for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014

Provides 2015 Financial Guidance

Irvine, Calif. (February 25, 2014) - Endologix, Inc. (NASDAQ: ELGX), developer and marketer of innovative treatments for aortic disorders, today announced financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014.

John McDermott, Endologix Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We achieved strong growth in the fourth quarter, including 12% constant currency revenue growth, driven by continued adoption of the AFX® Endovascular AAA System in the U.S. and the ongoing launch of the Nellix® Endovascular Sealing System in Europe. We also completed enrollment in our EVAS FORWARD-IDE clinical trial for Nellix in the U.S., keeping us on track for potential FDA approval in late 2016. Looking forward, our guidance reflects market-level growth in the U.S. combined with share gains in international markets, primarily driven by Nellix in Europe.”

Financial Results

Global revenue in the fourth quarter of 2014 was $38.8 million, a 10% increase from $35.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. For the year ended December 31, 2014, global revenue increased 12% to $147.6 million, compared to $132.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. On a constant currency basis fourth quarter and full year revenue increased 12%.

U.S. revenue in the fourth quarter of 2014 was $27.0 million, a 6% increase compared with $25.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, reflecting above market growth. International revenue was $11.8 million, a 19% increase compared to $9.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The international sales increase was primarily attributable to strong sales growth in Europe, with European revenue of $7.8 million, a 50% increase as compared to $5.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, and 62% growth on a constant currency basis.

Gross profit was $29.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, which represents a gross margin of 76%, compared to gross margin of 74% in the fourth quarter of 2013. Gross profit was $105.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, representing a gross margin of 72%. This compares with a gross margin of 75% for the year ended December 31, 2013. The decrease in gross margin for the year ended December 31, 2014 was primarily due to the inventory write-off of $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2014 for the transition to Endologix’s new DURAPLY™ ePTFE Graft Material for the AFX® Endovascular AAA System.

Total operating expenses were $40.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $27.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Total operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2014 were $134.9 million, compared with $109.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by expansion of sales and clinical personnel in the U.S. and Europe, general and administrative expenses to support revenue growth and by research, development, clinical and regulatory expenses (inclusive of business development costs of $4.1 million in the fourth quarter and full year 2014, compared to no expense in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $1.9 million in the 2013 year).

Endologix reported a net loss for the fourth quarter of 2014 of $14.8 million, or $(0.22) per share, compared with $3.4 million net loss, or $(0.05) per share, for the fourth quarter of 2013. The fourth quarter 2014 net loss includes Nellix contingent consideration, interest expense, foreign currency loss and business development expenses of $7.6 million, while the fourth quarter 2013 net loss includes other expenses of $2.7 million, primarily Nellix contingent consideration. Endologix reported Adjusted Net Loss (non-GAAP and defined below) for the fourth quarter of 2014 of $7.2 million or $(0.11) per share, compared with an Adjusted Net Loss (non-GAAP and defined below) for the fourth quarter of 2013 of $0.8 million, or $(0.01) per share.

For the year ended December 31, 2014, Endologix reported a net loss of $32.4 million, or $(0.50) per share, compared to a net loss of $16.1 million, or $(0.26) per share, for the year ended December 31, 2013. Endologix reported an Adjusted Net Loss (non-GAAP and defined below) for the year ended December 31, 2014 of $24.8 million or $(0.38) per share, compared with an Adjusted Net Loss (non-GAAP and defined below) for the year ended December 31, 2013 of $7.1 million, or $(0.11) per share.

Total cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $86.7 million as of December 31, 2014, compared to $126.5 million as of December 31, 2013.

Financial Guidance

Endologix anticipates 2015 constant currency revenue to be in the range of $163 million to $168 million, representing constant currency growth of 10% to 14% from 2014, and reported revenue in the range of $159 million to $165 million, or growth of 8% to 12% from 2014, based on the current foreign currency exchange rates. Endologix anticipates GAAP loss per share of $(0.64) to $(0.69) per share and an Adjusted loss per share (non-GAAP and defined below) of $(0.51) to $(0.56) per share.

About Endologix

Endologix, Inc. develops and manufactures minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders. Endologix's focus is endovascular stent grafts for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). AAA is a weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body, resulting in a balloon-like enlargement. Once AAA develops, it continues to enlarge and, if left untreated, becomes increasingly susceptible to rupture. The overall patient mortality rate for ruptured AAA is approximately 80%, making it a leading cause of death in the U.S. Additional information can be found on Endologix's website at www.endologix.com.

The Nellix® EndoVascular Aneurysm Sealing System has obtained CE Mark in the EU and is only approved as an investigational device in the United States.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Endologix's management believes that the non-GAAP measures of (1) "Adjusted Net Income (Loss)", (2) "Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Per Share”, (3) “Adjusted EBITDA", and (4) "Adjusted EBITDA Per Share" enhance an investor's overall understanding of Endologix's financial and operating performance and its future prospects by (i) being more reflective of core operating performance and (ii) being more comparable with financial results over various periods.  Endologix's management uses these financial measures for strategic decision making, forecasting future financial results, and evaluating current period financial and operating performance. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Per Share Definitions:

"GAAP" is generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

(1) "Adjusted Net Income (Loss)" is a non-GAAP measure defined by Endologix as net income (loss) under GAAP, excluding: (i) the fair value adjustment to the Nellix acquisition contingent consideration due primarily to the increase or decrease in the Endologix common stock price as the contingent consideration is payable in Endologix common stock; (ii) interest expense from the Company's convertible debt; (iii) foreign currency (gains) or losses; (iv) legal settlement costs; (v) contract termination and business acquisition expenses; and (vi) business development expenses, including licensing costs related to research and development activities.

In the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2014, this GAAP adjustment to net loss specifically represents: (i) the fair value adjustment to the Nellix acquisition contingent consideration liability; (ii) interest expense from the Company's convertible debt; (iii) foreign currency (gains) or losses and (iv) business development expenses.

In the three months ended December 31, 2013, this GAAP adjustment to net loss specifically represents: (i) the fair value adjustment to the Nellix acquisition contingent consideration liability; (ii) interest expense from the Company's convertible debt and (iii) foreign currency (gains) or losses.

In the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, this GAAP adjustment to net loss specifically represents: (i) the fair value adjustment to the Nellix acquisition contingent consideration liability; (ii) interest expense from the Company's convertible debt; (iii) foreign currency (gains) or losses and (iv) business development expenses.

In future periods, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) will continue to exclude: (i) the fair value adjustments to the Nellix contingent consideration liability; (ii) interest expense from the Company's convertible debt; (iii) foreign currency (gains) or losses; (iv) legal settlement costs; (v) contract termination and business acquisition expenses; (vi) business development expenses; and (vii) other non-recurring expenses or income, as described by Endologix.

(2) "Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Share" is a non-GAAP measure defined by Endologix as Adjusted Net Income (Loss) divided by the average shares outstanding (basic and diluted, as applicable under GAAP) for the corresponding period.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Per Share Definitions:

(3) “Adjusted EBITDA” is a non-GAAP measure defined by Endologix as “Adjusted Net Income (Loss)” plus income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization expense and stock-based compensation expense.

(4) “Adjusted EBITDA per Share” is a non-GAAP measure defined by Endologix as Adjusted EBITDA divided by average shares outstanding (basic and diluted, as applicable under GAAP) for the corresponding period.
