Insulet Reports Third Quarter 2011 Results

Revenue Increases 75% Year Over Year; Gross Profit Increases by 60% Year Over Year

BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 3, 2011) - Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD), the leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its OmniPod® Insulin Management System, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Third quarter 2011 revenue increased 75% to $44.6 million, compared to $25.5 million in the third quarter of 2010. Gross profit for the third quarter of 2011 improved by 60% to $18.6 million, as compared to a gross profit of $11.6 million for the third quarter of 2010. The increase in gross profit is primarily due to the acquisition of Neighborhood Diabetes in addition to the year over year growth in our customer base. The financial position and results of operations of Neighborhood Diabetes have been included in the Company's financial results since the acquisition date of June 1, 2011.

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2011 was $9.8 million, compared to an operating loss of $8.3 million in the third quarter of 2010. The change in operating loss was primarily due to increased gross profit of $7.0 million offset by approximately $8.5 million of incremental operating expenses. These incremental operating expenses include a full quarter of Neighborhood Diabetes activity, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and incremental R&D expenses.

"Demand for the OmniPod insulin pump continued to grow in the third quarter, both in the U.S. and abroad," said Duane DeSisto, President and Chief Executive Officer of Insulet. "In addition to increased traction by our U.S. salesforce, our international partners continue to drive growth, including in Canada, where the OmniPod was launched in September. We are working diligently with the FDA to obtain clearance for the next generation OmniPod in the coming months. The smaller, lighter OmniPod will be another advance in our mission to improve the lives of people with diabetes."

Net loss for the third quarter of 2011 was $13.6 million, or $0.29 per share, compared to a net loss of $12.1 million, or $0.30 per share, for the third quarter of 2010.

Mr. DeSisto continued, "Neighborhood Diabetes is proving to be a great strategic fit for Insulet. As a key distributor for diabetes products, the business complements sales of the OmniPod insulin pump with an expanded product offering and brings a higher level of customer service to our approximately 90,000 combined customers."

For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, revenue increased 52% to $105.1 million from $69.2 million for the first nine months of 2010. Gross profit for the first nine months of 2011 was $46.6 million, or a 44% gross margin, as compared to a gross profit of $29.9 million, or a 43% gross margin, in the first nine months of 2010. Operating loss for the first nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $32.0 million as compared to an operating loss of $28.9 million in the first nine months ended September 30, 2010. Net loss for the first nine months of 2011 was $42.8 million, or $0.92 per share, compared to $40.3 million, or $1.04 per share, for the first nine months of 2010.

As of September 30, 2011, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $103.8 million compared to $113.3 million at December 31, 2010 and $106.7 million at June 30, 2011.

The Company is updating its estimate for full year 2011 revenues to be in the range of $150 to $154 million primarily reflecting a planned first quarter 2012 launch of the next generation OmniPod in Europe. The Company expects an operating loss of $39 to $42 million for the full year 2011.
