Haemonetics Announces Signing of Supply Agreement with HemeXcel at J.P. Morgan Health Care Conference

BRAINTREE, Mass., Jan. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Haemonetics Corporation (NYSE: HAE) today announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement to supply the HemeXcel Purchasing Alliance LLC with certain whole blood collection components on an exclusive basis during calendar years 2014-2016.  The announcement was made in conjunction with the 32nd Annual J.P. Morgan Health Care Conference in San Francisco.

"We are very pleased with our selection by HemeXcel to meet their needs for whole blood collection products," said Brian Concannon, Haemonetics' President and CEO.  "We appreciate their confidence in our ability to deliver high quality products and services economically. Our commitments to them are a continual stream of differentiating new products and best-in-class customer service. The investments we've made over the past two years have resulted in a robust new product pipeline, positioning us well to bring meaningful differentiation and economical solutions to our whole blood customers."

HemeXcel representative George "Bud" Scholl, Executive Vice President of OneBlood, added: "By partnering with Haemonetics, we are able to offer transfusion care of the highest quality for patients, while maximizing the monetary value of our annual spend.  Beyond these immediate benefits, we value Haemonetics' relationship with major hospitals and we look forward to working together to advance patient blood management."

Haemonetics indicated that this incremental business volume will not have a material impact on fiscal 2014 revenue or earnings.  Considered together with a smaller recent U.S. tender that was not awarded to Haemonetics, this incremental volume will represent approximately five net points of U.S. whole blood disposables share gain in fiscal 2015 and beyond.  Another major U.S. whole blood tender remains in process and is expected to be awarded early in calendar 2014.  Haemonetics continues to work closely with this customer and is excited to have the opportunity to show its full range of capabilities.

Mr. Concannon continued: "The North American whole blood market is in a period of rapid change in which significantly reduced demand for blood products is driving collector consolidation and aggressive competitive pricing for whole blood consumables.  While we are optimistic about what these trends mean for the introduction of our differentiated whole blood offering, we expect margin headwinds from lower pricing will more than offset any benefit related to this share gain in fiscal 2015.  As we progress through the fiscal years beyond 2015, benefits of product value engineering and other internal initiatives are expected to offset these margin headwinds."

Mr. Concannon will comment on this agreement as part of a live webcast presentation at 10:00AM Pacific / 1:00PM Eastern time on Wednesday, January 15.  As previously announced, the public may access Mr. Concannon's presentation live at http://jpmorgan.metameetings.com/webcasts/healthcare14/directlink?ticker=HAE and that webcast will be archived and available for approximately 90 days.
