EDWARDS LIFESCIENCES REPORTS SECOND QUARTER RESULTS 
IRVINE, Calif., July 26, 2018 — Edwards Lifesciences Corporation (NYSE: EW), the global leader in patient-focused innovations for structural heart disease and critical care monitoring, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.
Second Quarter and Recent Highlights:
Sales grew 12 percent; underlying1 sales grew 10 percent
Global THVT sales grew 20 percent; underlying sales increased 12 percent
EPS grew 54 percent, aided by special items; adjusted1 EPS grew 15 percent
2018 adjusted EPS guidance raised to $4.60 to $4.75 from $4.50 to $4.70
Received CE Mark for Cardioband tricuspid valve reconstruction system
CMS reopened National Coverage Determination for TAVR
“We are pleased to report strong second quarter performance that delivered double-digit organic sales growth driven by robust sales of our innovative therapies. Adjusted sales grew 10 percent on an underlying basis, consistent with our expectations, and in-line with our projected 10 to 11 percent underlying sales growth for 2018,” said Michael A. Mussallem, chairman and CEO. “We experienced broad-based growth across the Edwards portfolio. Looking forward, as structural heart disease is largely undertreated and underdiagnosed, we remain committed to increasing awareness and providing innovative lifesaving therapies, so that even more patients can benefit.”
Second Quarter 2018 Results
Sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 were $944 million, up 12 percent. Total adjusted sales were $972 million, up 10 percent over the second quarter last year. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $1.32 per share, while adjusted earnings per share grew 15 percent to $1.24.

Transcatheter Heart Valve Therapy (THVT)
For the quarter, the company reported THVT sales of $585 million, a 20 percent growth rate over the second quarter last year, or 12 percent on an underlying basis. Globally, Edwards' average selling price increased slightly as a result of favorable country mix. Estimated worldwide TAVR procedures

continued to grow in the mid-teens, while Edwards' global growth was lower due to share decline outside the U.S.
"Our SAPIEN 3 valve continues to demonstrate best-in-class clinical performance, and we look forward to the introduction of our SAPIEN 3 Ultra and CENTERA valves later this year to reinforce our leadership position," said Mussallem. Separately, the company continues to anticipate data from the PARTNER 3 Trial to be presented at the ACC meeting in March of 2019, followed by FDA approval of the low-risk indication late that year.
During the quarter, Edwards announced receipt of a CE Mark for the Cardioband tricuspid valve reconstruction system, and clinicians have begun treating patients.
Surgical Heart Valve Therapy and Critical Care
Surgical Heart Valve Therapy sales for the quarter were $190 million, down 8 percent compared to the second quarter last year, or up 3 percent on an underlying basis. Adjusted sales exclude the impact of the surgical heart valve consignment conversion. Edwards' new premium aortic valve products drove underlying sales growth at a rate higher than total procedure growth.
Critical Care sales were $169 million for the quarter, representing an increase of 15 percent versus last year, or 12 percent on an underlying basis.  This performance was driven by strong growth across product lines, led primarily by the HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform, aided by new group purchasing organization contracts in the U.S.
Additional Financial Results
For the quarter, the company’s adjusted gross profit margin was 74.4 percent, compared to 75.3 percent in the same period last year. This reduction was driven by the impact from foreign exchange and continued investments in operations, partially offset by a more profitable product mix.
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 13 percent to $275 million for the quarter. This increase was driven by personnel related expenses and the strengthening of the euro against the dollar.
Research and development investments for the second quarter increased 15 percent to $154 million, or 16 percent of sales. This increase was primarily the result of continued investments in transcatheter heart valve therapy programs, including spending on clinical trials.
The tax rate this quarter benefited from the settlement of tax audits and tax planning stemming from U.S. tax reform. Excluding the impact of special items, the tax rate would have been 10 percent. Edwards now expects its 2018 tax rate, excluding special items, to be at the low end of its previous guidance range of 13 to 16 percent.

Free cash flow for the second quarter was $87 million, defined as cash flow from operating activities of $140 million, less capital spending of $53 million.
Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $1.4 billion at June 30, 2018.  Total debt was $1.2 billion.
Outlook
Given the strong performance in the first half of 2018, Edwards remains confident in achieving the higher end of its sales guidance range of $3.5 to $3.9 billion. Additionally, the company is raising its estimate for 2018 adjusted earnings per share to be between $4.60 and $4.75, from $4.50 to $4.70.
For the third quarter 2018, at current foreign exchange rates, the company projects total sales to be between $900 million and $950 million, and adjusted EPS of $0.93 to $1.03.
“We are confident in our outlook for continued strong sales growth, and we remain passionate about helping more patients around the world. We continue to focus on driving organic growth with leading innovative technologies, while aggressively investing in our future. Our foundation of leadership positions us well for continued longer-term success and greater shareholder value as we pursue multi-billion dollar market opportunities,” said Mussallem.

EDWARDS LIFESCIENCES CORPORATION
Non-GAAP Financial Information
 
To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company uses non-GAAP historical financial measures. Management makes adjustments to the GAAP measures for items (both charges and gains) that (a) do not reflect the core operational activities of the Company, (b) are commonly adjusted within the Company’s industry to enhance comparability of the Company’s financial results with those of its peer group, or (c) are inconsistent in amount or frequency between periods (albeit such items are monitored and controlled with equal diligence relative to core operations). The Company uses the term "adjusted sales" or “underlying growth rate” when referring to non-GAAP sales information, which excludes foreign exchange fluctuations, sales return reserves associated with transcatheter heart valve therapy ("THVT") product upgrades, the conversion to a consignment inventory system for surgical heart valves ("SHV"), and the positive impact of THVT stocking sales in Germany and the negative impact of de-stocking. The Company uses the term “adjusted” to also exclude intellectual property litigation income and expenses, amortization of intellectual property, fair value adjustments to contingent consideration liabilities arising from acquisitions, gains and losses from significant investments, impairments, litigation, the positive impact of THVT stocking sales in Germany and the negative impact of de-stocking, realignment expenses, sales return reserves and related costs associated with THVT product upgrades, the conversion to a consignment inventory system for SHV, charitable contributions to the Edwards Lifesciences Foundation, significant business development transactions, significant pension curtailment or settlement gains and losses, and the impact from implementation of tax law changes.

Fluctuations in exchange rates impact the comparative results and sales growth rates of the Company's underlying business. Management believes that excluding the impact of foreign exchange rate fluctuations from its sales growth provides investors a more useful comparison to historical financial results. The impact of foreign exchange rate fluctuations has been detailed in the "Reconciliation of Sales by Product Group and Region."

Guidance for sales and sales growth rates is provided on an "underlying basis," and projections for diluted earnings per share, net income and growth, gross profit margin, taxes, and free cash flow are also provided on a non-GAAP basis as adjusted for the items identified above due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting such items. The Company is not able to provide a reconciliation of the non-GAAP guidance to comparable GAAP measures due to the unknown effect, timing, and potential significance of special charges or gains, and management's inability to forecast charges associated with future transactions and initiatives.
 
Management considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure which provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by business operations, after deducting payments for capital expenditures, which can then be used for strategic opportunities or other business purposes including, among others, investing in the Company's business, making strategic acquisitions, strengthening the balance sheet, and repurchasing stock.

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally for strategic decision making, forecasting future results, and evaluating current performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are used in addition to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP and reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations by investors that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's business and facilitate comparability to historical periods.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP; therefore, the information is not necessarily comparable to other companies and should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of non-GAAP historical financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measure is provided in the tables below.
 
The items described below are adjustments to the GAAP financial results in the reconciliations that follow:
 
SHV Consignment Conversion - In the first and second quarters of 2018, the Company recorded a sales return reserve of $34.7 million ($30.8 million, net of related costs) and $28.4 million ($24.6 million, net of related costs), respectively, related to its conversion to a consignment inventory system for surgical heart valves.

THVT Germany Stocking Sales - In the first quarter of 2017, the Company recorded $61.8 million in net stocking sales ($48.0 million, net of related costs) to customers in Germany, as these customers elected to purchase additional inventory in anticipation of a potential supply interruption resulting from intellectual property litigation. In the second quarter of 2017, these customers consumed on a net basis $22.5 million ($17.9 million, net of related costs) of their stocking inventory. In the

7





first quarter of 2018, these customers consumed on a net basis $8.0 million ($6.0 million, net of related costs) of their stocking inventory.

Intellectual Property Litigation Expenses - The Company incurred intellectual property litigation expenses of $5.7 million and $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $5.5 million and $7.7 million in the second quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Change in Fair Value of Contingent Consideration Liabilities, net - The Company recorded expenses related to changes in the fair value of its contingent consideration liabilities arising from acquisitions in the amount of $3.8 million and $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $10.9 million and $3.1 million in the second quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Amortization of Intellectual Property - The Company recorded amortization expense related to intellectual property in the amount of $0.6 million and $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $0.7 million and $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Impairment of Long-lived Assets - The Company recorded a $31.2 million charge in the second quarter of 2017 related to the other-than-temporary impairment of one of its cost method investments and an associated long-term asset related to the Company's option to acquire this investee.

Pension Curtailment Gain - The Company recorded a $7.1 million gain in the first quarter of 2018 related to the curtailment of its defined benefit plan resulting from the closure of its manufacturing plant in Switzerland.

(Benefit from) Provision for Income Taxes - During the first quarter of 2018, the Company recorded a $24.0 million tax expense to adjust its estimated provisional amounts related to the implementation of U.S. tax law changes. During the second quarter of 2018, the Company recorded a $36.1 million tax benefit related to the settlement of tax audits and a $17.3 million benefit related to the reorganization of a foreign entity and adjustments to estimated provisional amounts resulting from the U.S. tax law changes. The income tax impact of the expenses and gains discussed above is based upon the items' forecasted effect upon the Company's full year effective tax rate. Adjustments to forecasted items unrelated to these expenses and gains, as well as impacts related to interim reporting, will have an effect on the income tax impact of these items in subsequent periods.
