EDWARDS LIFESCIENCES REPORTS THIRD QUARTER RESULTS 
IRVINE, Calif., October 23, 2019 — 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
September 30, 2019
.
Third Quarter and Recent Highlights
Sales grew 21% to $1.1 billion; underlying1 sales grew 19%
TAVR sales grew 26%; underlying sales grew 27%
R&D spending up 21% versus prior year to 18% of sales
EPS was $1.30; adjusted1 EPS was $1.41
2019 adjusted EPS guidance raised to $5.50 to $5.65 from $5.20 to $5.40
$27 million charge related to TAVR strategy
FDA approved SAPIEN 3 and SAPIEN 3 Ultra systems indication expansion

“We are very pleased to report strong third quarter results, which reflected a large increase in the number of patients that were treated with transcatheter heart valve therapy," said Michael A. Mussallem, chairman and CEO. "Our results were significantly higher than expected this quarter following the strong PARTNER 3 trial evidence that led to the recent FDA indication expansion of our SAPIEN 3 and SAPIEN 3 Ultra systems. Additionally, at a recent clinical meeting it was exciting to observe new evidence that once again demonstrated significant quality of life improvements for patients that received SAPIEN valves."
Third Quarter 2019 Results
Sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 were $1.1 billion, up 21 percent over the prior year, or 19 percent on an underlying basis. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $1.30, while adjusted earnings per share grew 32 percent, higher than expected, to $1.41.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
For the quarter, the company reported TAVR sales of $700 million, an increase of 26 percent over the third quarter last year, or 27 percent on an underlying basis. Global average selling prices remained

1





stable, and the company estimates its global competitive position was consistent with the second quarter and prior year.
“The recent indication expansion approval of our SAPIEN 3 and SAPIEN 3 Ultra systems represents a significant milestone and allows all patients diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis to be considered for TAVR based on their individual needs," said Mussallem.
He added, "While still early in the 2020 forecasting process and difficult to predict, we are modeling a return to low double-digit global TAVR procedure growth next year, consistent with our estimate of a $7 billion opportunity in 2024."
Transcatheter Mitral and Tricuspid Therapies (TMTT)
The company made important progress in the third quarter in advancing its portfolio of technologies to bring important solutions to underserved mitral and tricuspid patients with few options today. Enrollment is ongoing in the CLASP IID and CLASP IIF Pivotal Trials. In September the company received FDA approval for the CLASP IITR Pivotal Trial to study the PASCAL system in patients with symptomatic severe tricuspid regurgitation. The company remains on track to initiate a U.S. pivotal trial of the SAPIEN M3 system before the end of the year. Third quarter sales in TMTT were $10 million, lifted principally by commercial sales of the PASCAL transcatheter mitral system in Europe. For full year 2019, Edwards now expects TMTT revenue to be below $40 million as the company continues a disciplined introduction and premium pricing strategy, which is moderating site activation.
Surgical Structural Heart and Critical Care
Surgical Structural Heart sales for the quarter were $204 million, up 11 percent compared to the third quarter last year, or up three percent on an underlying basis. Growth was lifted by the sales of premium products, particularly through adoption of the INSPIRIS RESILIA aortic valve, which drove an increasing share of surgical aortic valve procedures.
Critical Care sales were $180 million for the quarter, representing an increase of ten percent versus the third quarter last year, or up seven percent on an underlying basis.  All product categories and geographies contributed to this performance, including our HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform.
Additional Financial Results
For the quarter, the company’s adjusted gross profit margin was 75.9 percent, compared to 75.5 percent in the same period last year. This improvement was driven primarily by the favorable impacts from foreign exchange and product mix, partially offset by spending in support of the new European device regulations and manufacturing variances.

2





Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 14 percent to $306 million for the quarter, driven by transcatheter structural heart field personnel related expenses, including expanding the TMTT field organization in Europe.
Research and development for the third quarter increased 21 percent to $196 million, or 18 percent of sales.  This increase was primarily the result of significant investments in the company's transcatheter structural heart programs, including generating clinical evidence.    
During the quarter, the company recorded an additional $27 million charge, primarily inventory, related to last quarter's strategic decisions regarding its transcatheter aortic valve portfolio.
Adjusted free cash flow for the third quarter was $319 million, defined as cash flow from operating activities of $437 million, less capital spending of $76 million, and excluding a $42 million tax benefit related to the company's previously announced litigation settlement.
Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $1.4 billion at September 30, 2019.  Total debt was $594 million.
Outlook
For 2019, the company now expects total sales around the top of its previous $4.0 billion to $4.3 billion range. Additionally, the company raised its full year 2019 adjusted earnings per share guidance to $5.50 to $5.65 from $5.20 to $5.40.
“We are very pleased with our strong year-to-date performance. As patients and clinicians increasingly choose TAVR, we remain optimistic about the long-term growth opportunity. We are committed to aggressively investing in our future, consistent with our focused innovation strategy. We remain confident that the innovative therapies resulting from our investments will benefit a broader group of patients suffering from structural heart disease and continue to drive strong organic growth," 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 rate fluctuations, the conversion to a consignment inventory system for surgical structural heart ("Surgical"), the positive impact of transcatheter aortic valve replacement ("TAVR") stocking sales in Germany and the negative impact of de-stocking, and includes the prior year sales results of a business acquired in the current year. The Company uses the term “adjusted” to also exclude intellectual property litigation income and expenses, amortization of intangible assets, fair value adjustments to contingent consideration liabilities arising from acquisitions, the positive impact of TAVR stocking sales in Germany and the negative impact of de-stocking, the conversion to a consignment inventory system for Surgical, significant pension curtailment gains, charges associated with TAVR inventory write offs and the purchase of intellectual property, and the impact from implementation of tax law changes and settlements.

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:
 
TAVR Inventory Write Off - The Company recorded a $46.2 million charge in the second quarter of 2019 and a $26.9 million charge in the third quarter of 2019, primarily comprised of the write off of inventory in response to strategic decisions regarding its TAVR portfolio.

Intellectual Property Litigation Expenses - The Company incurred intellectual property litigation expenses of $4.6 million and $5.7 million in the first quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively, $7.0 million and $5.5 million in the second quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively, and $7.9 million and $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, 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 $6.7 million and $3.8 million

7





in the first quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively, $8.0 million and $10.9 million in the second quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively, and income of $2.3 million and $6.4 million in the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Amortization of Intangible Assets - The Company recorded amortization expense related to developed technology, patents and trademarks in the amount of $0.5 million and $0.6 million in the first quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively, $1.2 million and $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively, and $1.3 million and $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Purchase of Intellectual Property - The Company recorded a $24.0 million charge in the first quarter of 2019 related to the acquisition of early-stage transcatheter intellectual property and associated clinical and regulatory experience.

Surgical Consignment Conversion - In the first, second and third quarters of 2018, the Company recorded a sales return reserve of $34.7 million ($30.8 million, net of related costs), $28.4 million ($24.6 million, net of related costs), and $14.4 million ($12.9 million, net of related costs), respectively, related to its conversion to a consignment inventory system for surgical heart valves.

TAVR 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 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.

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.

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. During the third quarter of 2018, the Company recorded a $4.6 million benefit related to the reorganization of a foreign entity. 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.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow - The Company defines free cash flow as cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures. During 2019, the Company excluded from its calculation payments related to a litigation settlement, net of the associated tax benefit. During 2018, the Company excluded from its calculation payments related to tax audit settlements and the repatriation tax resulting from U.S. tax law changes.
