(Nasdaq: BMRN) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2010.  GAAP net loss was $12.2 million ($0.11 per diluted share) for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to GAAP net income of $4.7 million ($0.05 per diluted share) for the fourth quarter of 2009.  The GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 includes $13.7 million of debt conversion expense associated with the early conversion of a portion of our convertible debt.  Non-GAAP net income was $11.3 million ($0.10 per diluted share) for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to non-GAAP net income of $13.5 million ($0.13 per diluted share) for the fourth quarter of 2009.  Non-GAAP net income excludes non-cash stock compensation expense and certain nonrecurring material items.  The reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the GAAP net income in the fourth quarter and full year 2010 is detailed in the table provided near the end of the press release.GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $205.8 million ($1.73 per diluted share), compared to GAAP net loss of $0.5 million ($0.00 per diluted share) for the year ended December 31, 2009.  Non-GAAP net income was $34.8 million ($0.33 per diluted share) for the year ended December 31, 2010, compared to non-GAAP net income of $47.1 million ($0.46 per diluted share) for the year ended December 31, 2009.As of December 31, 2010, BioMarin had cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term investments totaling $402.3 million, as compared to $440.9 million at the end of September 30, 2010.  The decrease in the fourth quarter of 2010 was attributable to debt conversion expense of $13.7 million, a milestone payment of $11.0 million to the former LEAD shareholders related to the acceptance of the IND for BMN-673 and increases in working capital, primarily related to planned inventory builds.  During 2011, the company expects to remain cash flow neutral to slightly positive."We have made significant progress on advancing our pipeline and remain committed to investing in future growth in the coming years.  We recently initiated the pivotal Phase III trial for GALNS as well as the Phase I/II trials for BMN-701 for Pompe disease and BMN-673 for genetically-defined cancers," said Jean-Jacques Bienaime, Chief Executive Officer of BioMarin.  "Our commercial business is growing steadily, and we continue to see growth opportunities for each of our products. Naglazyme sales in the fourth quarter of 2010 were artificially low due to the timing of government orders from Brazil and will result in higher comparable revenues in the first quarter of 2011. However, Naglazyme patient growth continues to be steady.  Our total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $101.6 million, the first time we have exceeded $100 million for the quarter."Net Product Revenue (in millions)Three Months Ended December 31,Years Ended December 31, 20102009$ Change% Change20102009$ Change% ChangeNaglazyme (1) $45.1$44.4$0.71.6%$192.7$168.7$24.014.2%Kuvan (2) 27.322.74.620.3%99.476.822.629.4%Firdapse (3) 3.00.03.0N/A6.40.06.4N/A(1) Changes in foreign currency rates, net of hedges, had a negative $0.1 million impact on Naglazyme sales in the three months ended December 31, 2010 and a negative $1.7 million impact on Naglazyme sales for the year ended December 31, 2010.  Naglazyme revenues experience quarterly fluctuations due to the timing of government ordering patterns in certain countries.

Regulatory approval and commercial availability of the handheld blood Phe monitor are expected in late 2011. Firdapse: BioMarin expects to initiate a Phase III trial for LEMS in the U.S. in the second quarter of 2011.  If successful, NDA submission is expected in the first half of 2012, followed by approval by the end of 2012.Mid-Stage Clinical ProgramsPEG-PAL for PKU: Top-line results for the Phase II study, including a study comparing daily and weekly dosing and a formulation study are expected in mid-2011.  The company expects to initiate a Phase III trial in the first quarter of 2012.Early-Stage Clinical ProgramsBMN-673 (PARP inhibitor):  The company initiated a Phase I/II trial in January 2011.  The trial is an open-label study of once daily, orally administered BMN-673 in up to 70 patients ages 18 and older with advanced or recurrent solid tumors.  The primary objective of the study is to establish the maximum tolerated dose of daily oral BMN-673 and to obtain preliminary efficacy data in an expanded cohort of patients with genetically-defined tumors.BMN-701 for Pompe Disease: BioMarin initiated a Phase I/II trial in Pompe patients in January 2011.  The trial is an open-label study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamic and clinical activity of BMN-701 administered as an intravenous infusion every two weeks at doses of 5 mg/kg, 10 mg/kg and 20 mg/kg.  The company expects to enroll up to 30 patients between the ages of 13 and 65 years old with late-onset Pompe disease for a treatment period of 24 weeks.  The primary objective of the study is to establish the maximum tolerated dose of every other week administration of BMN-701 and to treat an expanded cohort of patients at the maximum tolerated dose.Preclinical ProgramsBMN-111 for Achondroplasia: BioMarin expects to initiate a Phase I trial by the first quarter of 2012.  BMN-111 is an analog of C-type Natriuretic Peptide (CNP) for achondroplasia, a small cyclic peptide that is a positive regulator of bone growth.  Achondroplasia is the most common form of dwarfism.  There are approximately between 18,000 and 24,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe, 25 percent of which is the estimated addressable market.Other early stage programs: BioMarin is working on multiple early development opportunities.Non-GAAP Financial Information and ReconciliationThe above results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009 and financial guidance for the year ending December 31, 2011 are presented both as determined in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis. As used in this release for the three months and year ended December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009, non-GAAP income is calculated in accordance with GAAP, but excludes non-cash stock compensation expense and certain nonrecurring material items. The financial guidance for the year ending December 31, 2011 is based on Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) adjusted to exclude non-cash stock compensation expense, contingent consideration expense and certain nonrecurring material items (Adjusted EBITDA).  Beginning in 2011, the non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA measure rather than the prior non-GAAP income will be utilized in discussing financial performance as this metric is more aligned with management's internal goal setting process.    The following tables detail the reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP financial metrics:Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Non-GAAP Net Income For the Three and Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2010 and 2009(in millions)(unaudited) Three Months Ended December 31,Years EndedDecember 31,NOTES2010200920102009GAAP Net Income (Loss)$ (12.2)$   4.7$ 205.8$ (0.5)Stock-based compensation expense9.88.837.534.5Upfront license fees(1)---8.8Impairment charges(2)---5.9Net gain on the sale of equity investments--(0.9)(1.6)Debt conversion expense(3)13.7-13.7-Acquisition expenses(4)--1.8-Tax benefit(5)--(223.1)-Non-GAAP Net Income$  11.3$ 13.5$   34.8$ 47.1(1)  Represents upfront license payments related to our collaboration agreement with La Jolla Pharmaceutical Company in the first quarter of 2009.   (2)  Includes impairment losses on investments in Summit plc. and La Jolla Pharmaceutical Company recognized during the first quarter of 2009.    (3)   Represents debt conversion expense associated with the early conversion of a portion our convertible debt in November 2010.    (4)   Represents transactions costs associated with the acquisition of ZyStor Therapeutics Inc., during the third quarter of 2010.   (5)  Represents only the portion of total tax expense for the period related to the reversal of the Company's income tax valuation allowance during the third quarter of 2010.    Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAFor the Year Ended December 31, 2010 with Guidance for 2011(in millions)(unaudited) NOTESYear EndedDecember 31, 2010Year Ending December 31, 2011GuidanceGAAP Net Income (Loss)          $205.8          $(60) - $(48)Interest expense, net             6.2                    6Income tax expense(1)         (227.3)                   15Depreciation            15.7                  24Amortization              3.0                    4EBITDA (Loss)             3.4             (11) - 1Stock-based compensation            37.5                 43Gain on sale of equity investments           (0.9)Contingent consideration(2)             4.0                 11Material non-recurring:Convertible debt exchange(3)            13.7Acquisition expenses(4)             1.8Adjusted EBITDA          $59.5            $43 - $55(1)  Includes the release of the Company's income tax valuation allowance during 2010.    (2)  Represents the changes in the fair value of contingent acquisition consideration payable for the period.   (3)  Represents debt conversion expense associated with the early conversion of a portion our convertible debt in November 2010.    (4)  Represents transactions costs associated with the acquisition of ZyStor Therapeutics Inc., during the third quarter of 2010.   BioMarin believes that this non-GAAP information is useful to investors, taken in conjunction with BioMarin's GAAP information because it provides additional information regarding the performance of BioMarin's core ongoing business, Naglazyme, Kuvan, Aldurazyme and Firdapse and development of its pipeline.  By providing information about both the overall GAAP financial performance and the non-GAAP measures that focus on continuing operations, the company believes that the additional information enhances investors' overall understanding of the company's business and prospects for the future.  Further, the company uses both the GAAP and the non-GAAP results and expectations internally for its operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes and uses the adjusted EBITDA methodology in establishing corporate goals for internal compensation programs.Diluted Earnings Per Share Calculation As of December 31, 2010 and 2009 the shares related to our outstanding convertible debt are 19.1 million and 26.3 million, respectively. For the year ended December 31, 2010 the calculation of GAAP diluted earnings per share includes the 19.1 million shares related to our outstanding convertible debt at December 31, 2010. The calculation of GAAP diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2010 and the 2009 periods presented exclude the 19.1 million and 26.3 million shares, respectively, related to our convertible debt outstanding at December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively, as their impact is considered anti-dilutive.The calculation of non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010 excludes the 19.1 million shares related to the Company's convertible debt outstanding on December 31, 2010, as their impact is considered anti-dilutive. The calculation of non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2009 excludes 26.3 million shares related to the Company's outstanding convertible debt, as their impact is considered anti-dilutive. The calculation of non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2009 includes 26.3 million shares related to the Company's outstanding convertible debt, as their impact is considered dilutive.Conference Call DetailsBioMarin will host a conference call and webcast to discuss fourth quarter and full year 2010 financial results today, Thursday, February 17, at 5:00 p.m. ET.
