11/9/2010 11:13:31 AM

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 09, 2010) -

NMT Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: NMTI), an advanced medical technology company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets proprietary implant technologies that allow interventional cardiologists to treat structural heart disease through minimally invasive, catheter-based procedures, today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Third-Quarter Results

Third-quarter 2010 total revenues were approximately $2.1 million compared with approximately $3.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2009.

Cardiac septal repair implant sales in North America for the third quarter of 2010 were approximately $1.5 million compared with approximately $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2009. Implant sales outside of North America were approximately $550,000 in the third quarter of 2010 compared with approximately $700,000 in the corresponding period of 2009.

For the third quarter of 2010, NMT reported a net loss of approximately $3.4 million, or $0.21 per share, compared with a net loss of approximately $2.9 million, or $0.22 per share, for the corresponding period in 2009. The net loss for the third quarter of 2010 includes a non-cash, pre-tax gain of $175,000 related to the change in fair value of the warrants issued in February 2010 as part of the Company's $5.8 million financing. For the third quarter of 2010, NMT reported a loss from operations of approximately $3.5 million compared with a loss of approximately $2.9 million in the same period of 2009.

Management Comments

"Sales of NMT's cardiac septal repair implant technologies continued to underperform our expectations, especially in Europe," said Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer Richard E. Davis. "In response to our performance, we have refocused our sales strategy in certain countries in Western Europe where we believe there is the most opportunity for growth, such as Germany and the United Kingdom. We anticipate that this will improve implant unit sales, while not increasing our expense structure."

"On November 4, the CLOSURE I methodology paper, which provided a detailed explanation of the trial design, was made available by electronic copy on the STROKE website. The full set of data from the trial is undergoing final analysis and the findings will be presented at the American Heart Association meeting on November 15 by the CLOSURE I Principal Investigator, Anthony Furlan, MD. It is anticipated that results from the trial will be published in a peer-reviewed journal in the next several weeks. The preliminary results of CLOSURE I, despite not meeting the primary endpoint, did confirm several positive attributes of our technology. The data demonstrated that NMT's STARFlex® technology provided a small benefit over current best medical therapy."

"As of September 30, 2010, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were approximately $3.4 million. We are continuing to consider all potential financing alternatives and are evaluating our strategic options accordingly in order to provide the liquidity necessary to sustain our operations, including ongoing clinical trials and development programs, beyond the fourth quarter of 2010. We continue to tightly manage all expenses and currently expect fourth-quarter 2010 revenues to be approximately $2.3 million," Mr. Davis concluded.

About NMT Medical, Inc.

NMT Medical is an advanced medical technology company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets proprietary implant technologies that allow interventional cardiologists to treat structural heart disease through minimally invasive, catheter-based procedures. NMT is currently investigating the potential connection between a common heart defect that allows a right-to-left shunt or flow of blood through a defect like a patent foramen ovale (PFO) and brain attacks such as embolic stroke, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) and migraine headaches. A common right-to-left shunt can allow venous blood, unfiltered and unmanaged by the lungs, to enter the arterial circulation of the brain, possibly triggering a cerebral event or brain attack. More than 34,000 PFOs have been treated globally with NMT's minimally invasive, catheter-based implant technology.
