Endologix Files Form 10-K; Nellix Purchase Price Allocation Finalized
IRVINE, Calif. (March 16, 2011) - Endologix, Inc. (NASDAQ: ELGX), developer of minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders, today announced the filing of its annual report on Form 10-K and certain revisions to its previously reported unaudited fourth quarter and full year 2010 financial results.
Upon finalization of the purchase price allocation related to Endologix's December 2010 acquisition of Nellix, Inc., the Company revised the amount of the purchase price allocated to in-process research and development (IPR&D) to $40.1 million and goodwill to $22.4 million. Accordingly, the Company revised the associated deferred tax liability and the corresponding change in valuation allowance effect. This resulted in an income tax benefit of $15.1 million compared to $11.3 million previously reported. The revisions had no effect on cash flows or cash balances.
As a result, Endologix reported revised GAAP net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2010 of $11.7 million, or $0.22 per diluted share from the previously reported $8.0 million or $0.15 per diluted share; and GAAP net earnings for the full year 2010 of $10.7 million or $0.21 per fully diluted share from the previously reported $6.9 million or $0.14 per diluted share.
There were no other changes to Endologix's previously reported unaudited fourth quarter and full-year 2010 financial results, its previously reported adjusted (non-GAAP) results, or its previously reported financial guidance.
Endologix, Inc. develops and manufactures minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders. The Company's flagship product is the Powerlink® System, which is an endovascular stent graft 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 75%, making it a leading cause of death in the U.S. Additional information can be found on Endologix's Web site at www.endologix.com.
