"Surpassing the billion dollar mark in annual sales is a result of our ability to continue to innovate and launch new products to treat sleep-disordered breathing. We believe continued growth will also come from the increasing confirmation of the strong impact of the relationship between sleep-disordered breathing, obstructive sleep apnea and co-morbidities such as cardiac disease, diabetes, hypertension and obesity.  In a recently released study in Circulation, it was shown that obstructive sleep apnea is associated with an increased risk of incident heart failure in a general community of middle-aged and older men. Specifically, men ages 40-70 with AHI > 30 were 68% more likely to develop coronary heart disease than those with AHI < 5.  This adds to a multitude of studies being conducted that provide abundant new evidence that treating sleep-disordered breathing and obstructive sleep apnea can improve health, quality of life and also mitigate the dangers of sleep apnea in occupational health and safety, especially in the transport industry."

Stock Split

ResMed Inc. also announced today that its board of directors approved a two-for-one stock split of the company's outstanding shares of common stock, payable in the form of a 100% stock dividend.

Stockholders of record on the New York Stock Exchange at the close of trading on August 17, 2010 will receive one additional share of common stock for each share held on that date.   The common stock will be distributed to shareholders on or about August 30, 2010, by ResMed's NYSE transfer agent, American Stock Transfer and Trust Company, LLC.  The common stock is expected to begin trading on a post-split basis on the NYSE beginning on August 31, 2010 or one day following the distribution date.

Holders of CHESS Depositary Interests (CDIs) on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) will also receive a bonus issue of one additional CDI for every CDI held on the ASX record date of August 18, 2010. Unlike the shares on the NYSE, the existing CDIs are expected to be quoted on an "ex-bonus" basis on August 12, 2010 on the ASX (ASX Code: RMD), and bonus CDI's will be quoted on a deferred settlement basis (ASX Code: RMDBN).  ResMed is seeking a waiver from the ASX that would, if granted, suspend the conversion of shares between the NYSE common stock and ASX CDIs during the time period between August 12th and August 31st. The bonus CDIs will be distributed by ResMed's ASX share registry, Computershare Limited, on or about August 31, 2010, and normal trading will begin on the following day.

"Our strong financial performance can be attributed to the growth and strength of our business and consistent execution and as a result, we felt it was in the best interest of our shareholders to declare a stock split," commented Mr. Gallahue.  "ResMed has delivered an outstanding return for our shareholders and the split is designed to improve liquidity and broaden ownership in our company."

As of July 30, 2010, ResMed had common stock outstanding of approximately 76 million shares. Following the stock distribution, the number of outstanding shares will increase to approximately 152 million shares.
