About The Medicines Company

The Medicines Company is a biopharmaceutical company driven by an overriding purpose—to save lives, alleviate suffering and contribute to the economics of healthcare. The Company’s mission is to create transformational solutions to address the most pressing healthcare needs facing patients, physicians and providers in three critical therapeutic areas: serious infectious disease care, cardiovascular care and surgery and perioperative care. The Company is headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey, with global innovation centers in California and Switzerland.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE MEASURES

In addition to financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, this press release also contains adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per share from continuing operations attributable to The Medicines Company. We believe these measures provide investors and management with supplemental information relating to operating performance and trends that facilitate comparisons between periods and with respect to projected information.

Adjusted net loss from continuing operations excludes share-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, inventory adjustments, restructuring charges, milestone payments, changes in contingent purchase price, expenses incurred for certain transactions, non-cash interest expense, gain on sale of investment, gain on remeasurement of equity investment, gain on sale of assets, loss on extinguishment of debt, legal settlement and net loss tax adjustments. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures help indicate underlying trends in the Company’s business and are important in comparing current results with prior period results and understanding projected operating performance. Non-GAAP financial measures provide the Company and its investors with an indication of the Company’s baseline performance before items that are considered by the Company not to be reflective of the Company’s ongoing results. See the attached Reconciliations of GAAP to Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Loss per Share for explanations of the amounts excluded and included to arrive at adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per share amounts for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2016 and 2015.

These adjusted measures are non-GAAP and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company strongly encourages investors to review its consolidated financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and cautions investors that the non-GAAP measures used by the Company may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.
