Omnicell Announces Second Quarter 2005 Financial Results

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - July 21, 2005 -- Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMCL), a leading provider of patient safety solutions preferred by nurses, today announced second quarter 2005 results.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2005 totaled $28.6 million, down 2% from the second quarter of 2004 and down less than 1% from Q1 2005. Total backlog as of June 30, 2005 totaled a record $53.9 million, up $7.5 million or 20% from second quarter 2004 and up $8.7 million or 20% sequentially.

Net income for the quarter totaled $66,000, up from a GAAP loss of $(5.8) million or $(0.23) per share in Q1 2005, but down from a net income of $2.4 million or $0.09 per share in Q2 2004.

Gross margin for the second quarter was 56.9%. This was an improvement of 6.9 points from our GAAP gross margin in Q1 2005 and up 3.0 points from pro forma gross margin in Q1 2005. The improvement versus Q1 pro forma results was primarily a result of overhead cost reductions in the company's manufacturing, field installation, and service organizations.

Operating expenses were $16.3 million for the second quarter of 2005. This compares with operating expenses of $20.3 million on a GAAP basis in Q1 2005 and pro forma operating expenses of $18.1 million for the first quarter of 2005. The decrease from Q1 pro forma operating expenses was due to significant cost reductions associated with ceasing the company's practice of chasing "turns" business, a reduction in fees for audit and SOX compliance, and a reduction of sales and marketing expenses unique to the first quarter of 2005.

Omnicell Chairman, President and CEO Randall A. Lipps commented, "I'm very pleased with the increased order activity we saw in the second quarter. We made some strategic investments in the latter half of 2004 to realign our sales force and bring more focus on our main supply and medication product lines, and concentrated our corporate sales team on business opportunities with large integrated delivery networks. While the transition has not been easy, this past quarter's results clearly indicate that we have begun to see the benefits of these initiatives."

Omnicell Interim CFO James T. Judson added, "We have made excellent strides during Q2 taking costs out of our business. The organization is focused on driving linearity which minimizes our costs and cash needs, but also frees up time to make the necessary changes in business practices to adapt to the larger deals and new market opportunities ahead of us."

The risk factors are described in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings and include, without limitation, the continued growth and acceptance of our products and services and the continued growth of the clinical automation and workflow automation market generally, the potential of increasing competition, the ability of the company to achieve profitability in the next few quarters, grow product backlog, retain key personnel, cut expenses, develop new products and integrate acquired products or intellectual property in a timely and cost-effective manner, and improve sales productivity. Prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Statement of Utility

Omnicell provides all information required in accordance with GAAP, but it believes that evaluating its ongoing operating results may be difficult if an investor is limited to reviewing only GAAP financial measures. Accordingly, Omnicell uses non-GAAP financial measures of its performance internally to evaluate its ongoing operations and to allocate resources within the organization.

Omnicell's management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures used by Omnicell may not be consistent with the presentation of similar companies in Omnicell's industry. However, Omnicell presents such non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate its operating results in a manner that focuses on what it believes to be its ongoing business operations.

Omnicell's management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review both GAAP information and the non-GAAP measures earnings per share to have a better understanding of the overall performance of its business and its ability to perform in subsequent periods.

Omnicell has computed the non-GAAP earnings per share impact for the first quarter of 2005 of severance costs related to a reduction in force, charges related to the end-of-life of certain older products and the costs related to two suspended acquisitions, all occurring in the first quarter of 2005. Management believes that the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability with the reports of financial results for the second quarter of 2005 and it better enables investors to evaluate the ongoing operations and prospects of Omnicell by providing a better comparison to prior periods. Omnicell has provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
