Guru Investment Theses on Heartware International Inc

Baron Funds Comments on HeartWare International - May 05, 2014

We also initiated a position in HeartWare International, Inc. (NASDAQ:HTWR), which sells an implantable heart pump for the treatment of advanced heart failure. HeartWare's HVAD is the smallest and lightest pump available and is easier and less invasive to implant. HeartWare is rapidly taking share from its competitor who was first to market.



The NIH estimates up to 100,000 patients just in the U.S., as potential candidates for a left ventrical assist device. The global market is over double that. Only 6,300 devices were implanted globally in 2013, so this market is in a nascent stage of development. Barriers to entry are very high, due to long and arduous clinical and regulatory requirements and we think this will remain a duopoly. HeartWare has a next generation pump in trials that has the potential to be disruptive technology, which could accelerate market adoption and market share gain. They also are developing products that treat earlier stages of heart failure and offer less invasive treatments.



HeartWare did a little over $200 million in revenues last year, and we believe that will more than triple in the next five years. However, the company is not profitable and won't be until 2016. Wall Street values these businesses on revenues, which is something I am uncomfortable with, and we suspect that clinical trials and product rollout will have ups and downs, so we are prepared for a bumpy ride. But if this plays out how we expect, the stock could appreciate over three-fold in the next five years, so it's worth the agita

Heartware International Inc was incorporated in Delaware on July 29, 2008 and became the successor issuer to HeartWare Limited, an Australian corporation, on November 13, 2008, as a result of the Australian Court approved redomiciliation of HeartWare Limited from Australia to Delaware. HeartWare is a medical device company engaged in developing implantable blood pumps for the treatment of advanced heart failure. The Company operates one reportable segment which includes the design, manufacture and marketing of medical devices for the treatment of advanced heart failure. The HeartWare Ventricular Assist System, which includes a left ventricular assist device, or blood pump, patient accessories and surgical tools, is designed to provide circulatory support for patients with advanced heart failure. Beyond the HeartWare System, the company is also evaluating its next device, the Miniaturized Ventricular Assist Device. The MVAD is based on the same technology platform as the HeartWare System but adopts an axial flow, rather than a centrifugal flow, configuration and is being developed in multiple configurations. The MVAD designs are currently at the preclinical stage and undergoing animal studies focused on minimally invasive implantation techniques and are each approximately one-third the size of the HVAD Pump. The Company's competitors in the implantable cardiac assist space include Thoratec Corporation, Jarvik Heart, Inc., MicroMed Cardiovascular, Berlin Heart GmbH, and Sunshine Heart, Inc. HEARTWARE, HVAD, MVAD, PAL, CIRCULITE, SYNERGY and various company logos are the trademarks of the Company, in the United States, Europe, Australia and other countries.
