Company Highlights:

Pro Forma Financial Results:

The following discussion of second quarter financial results includes the pro forma effects of certain transactions, including the i3 Global acquisition, and excludes certain expenses and charges related to recent acquisitions and the related integrations. In the attached supplementary information tables, these items are reconciled to the most directly comparable financial measures computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). inVentiv Health pro forma results do not include the results of PharmaNet, which was acquired in July 2011. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a detailed definition of the pro forma financial measures.

Pro forma net revenues for the second quarter of 2011 rose 8.7% to $384.6 million, compared with $353.9 million in the corresponding period of 2010. Pro forma adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2011 was $54.6 million, compared with $55 million in the second quarter of 2010. The results reflect increased strategic investments, including strengthening the management team, improving systems for internal financial controls and IT infrastructure, increasing business development activities, and rolling out new brand and marketing initiatives. Quarterly and segment pro forma EBITDA do not include the impact of pro forma synergies.

"During the second quarter, we continued to make strategic investments in our people, in our infrastructure and in our global scale furthering our goal of being the leading service provider in every market we serve," said Paul Meister, Chief Executive Officer of inVentiv Health. "The recent acquisitions of i3 Global and PharmaNet strengthen our market position by expanding our global footprint, enabling us to more effectively address our clients' needs anywhere in the world. We continue to pursue options to strengthen our presence in established and emerging markets, including Japan, and in high-priority countries such as China and India. Additionally, we remain focused on improving efficiencies and executing on our strategic objectives in all three of our segments: Clinical, Commercial and Consulting."

Business Segment Results:

inVentiv Clinical
In the second quarter of 2011, inVentiv Clinical pro forma net revenues increased 3.3% to $144.7 million, compared with $140.1 million in the corresponding period of 2010. Segment pro forma adjusted EBITDA was $16.7 million, compared with $17.2 million in the second quarter of 2010. Revenues in inVentiv Clinical increased in 2011 mainly due to new projects and increased personnel placements. EBITDA was impacted by timing of the offshoring of a large customer project as well as a mix shift between services.

inVentiv Commercial
In the second quarter of 2011, inVentiv Commercial pro forma net revenues increased 14.4% to $220.5 million, compared with $192.8 million in the corresponding period of 2010. Segment pro forma adjusted EBITDA increased 10.7% to $44.6 million, compared with $40.3 million in the second quarter of 2010. Growth in the commercial services and communications businesses was offset partially by lower patient outcomes revenues.

inVentiv Consulting
In the second quarter of 2011, inVentiv Consulting pro forma net revenues were $19.5 million, compared with $20.9 million in the corresponding period of 2010. Segment pro forma adjusted EBITDA was $0.5 million, compared with $3.3 million in second quarter of 2010. Consulting segment performance included strong growth at Campbell Alliance for the quarter, but was more than offset by the continued decline in the legacy inVentiv Advanced Insights business. During the second quarter the Company successfully completed the integration of Advanced Insights into Campbell Alliance.

Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA for the LTM Period Ended June 30, 2011:

For the 12-month period ended June 30, 2011, the Company's pro forma adjusted EBITDA totaled $250.5 million. Pro forma adjusted EBITDA for the 12-month period ended June 30, 2011, excludes the results of PharmaNet, which was acquired in July 2011. A reconciliation of pro forma adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most directly comparable financial measures computed in accordance with GAAP, is included in the attached supplementary information tables.

On a GAAP basis, revenues for the second quarter of 2011 were $352.4 million, compared with $284.5 million during the second quarter of 2010. Net revenues, or revenues excluding reimbursable expenses, were $309 million during the second quarter of 2011 versus $246.9 in the prior year period. Income from operations for the second quarter of 2011 was $16.5 million, compared with $22.1 million for the second quarter of 2010. Net loss for the second quarter of 2011 totaled $3.7 million, compared with net income of $9.6 million in the prior year period. The second quarter of 2011 reflects the February 11, 2011, acquisition of Campbell Alliance for the full quarter, and the results of i3 Global from June 11, 2011.

Pro forma unlevered free cash flow was $46.6 million for the second quarter of 2011, versus $49.5 million for second quarter of 2010. The change was primarily driven by increased capital expenditures on infrastructure investments and capital leases.

Recent Transactions:

On July 13, 2011, inVentiv Health completed the acquisition of PharmaNet for approximately $592.9 million. PharmaNet offers comprehensive drug development capabilities and strong therapeutic expertise in Phase 1 through Phase 4 clinical trials, bioanalytical services, pharmaceutical and regulatory consulting. With the addition of PharmaNet, inVentiv extends its global presence to nearly 40 countries and greatly enhances both its early- and late-stage clinical development capabilities. With i3 Global and PharmaNet, inVentiv Health is one of the world's top contract research organizations (CRO).

On June 10, 2011, inVentiv Health acquired i3 Global for approximately $376.4 million. i3 Global is an industry-leading, global CRO that provides a broad range of clinical development services that can be deployed on any scale from complex, multinational trials to smaller, early-phase studies in specialized patient populations. i3 Global's integrated businesses combine a deep understanding of therapeutic, scientific and functional proficiency in product development and strategic resourcing, including functional outsourcing and staffing solutions.

Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the preceding discussion of our results use non-GAAP financial measures.

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, pro forma adjusted EBITDA and consolidated EBITDA per Credit Agreement are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, U.S. GAAP. We believe that the presentation of these supplemental measures enhances readers' of these financial statements understanding of our financial performance. We view these measures as useful financial metrics to assess our operating performance from period to period by excluding certain items that we believe are not representative of our core business. The inclusion of these supplementary adjustments is appropriate to provide additional information to readers of these financial statements about certain material noncash items; unusual or nonrecurring items that we do not expect to continue in the future; and other adjustments. Specifically, consolidated EBITDA per Credit Agreement is based on adjustments permitted in calculating covenant compliance in accordance with the indentures governing our Senior Notes and our Senior Secured Credit Facilities. Our use of these terms may vary from others in our industry. These measures are not defined under GAAP, and do not substitute for measures of net income, operating income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, and are subject to limitations.

EBITDA is defined as net income before net interest expense, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted to exclude certain unusual or nonrecurring items and other adjustments. These adjustments include the impact of acquisition accounting, acquisition expenses, management fees and stock-based compensation, as well as other items. Pro forma adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net revenues are defined as adjusted EBITDA and net revenues, respectively, of inVentiv presented on a pro forma basis to give effect to the Aug. 4, 2010 acquisition of inVentiv by an entity controlled by affiliates of Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P., Liberty Lane IH LLC and other investors, and the acquisitions of Campbell Alliance and i3 Global as if all such transactions occurred on Jan. 1, 2010. Pro forma adjusted EBITDA excludes certain nonrecurring items and other adjustments related to the pro forma period on a basis consistent with our adjusted EBITDA. Pro forma adjusted EBITDA for the last 12-month period ended June 30, 2011, also includes synergies related to action taken or to be implemented.
