                              PHARMANETICS, INC.


Note 1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

PharmaNetics, Inc. (the "Company") is a holding company incorporated in July
1998 as the parent company of Cardiovascular Diagnostics, Inc. ("CVDI"). CVDI
was incorporated in November 1985 and develops, manufactures and markets rapid
turnaround diagnostics to assess blood clot formation and dissolution. CVDI
develops tests based on its proprietary dry chemistry diagnostic test system,
known as the Thrombolytic Assessment System ("TAS"), to provide rapid and
accurate evaluation of hemostasis at the point of patient care. The consolidated
financial statements included herein as of any date other than December 31 have
been prepared by the Company without audit, pursuant to the rules and
regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Financial information as
of December 31 has been derived from the audited financial statements of the
Company, but does not include all disclosures required by generally accepted
accounting principles. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited
consolidated financial statements include all adjustments (consisting only of
normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the consolidated
financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company. For
further information regarding the Company's accounting policies, refer to the
Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes included in the Company's
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2000. Results for the
interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results for any other
interim period or for the full fiscal year.

Note 2. Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three
months or less at the date of purchase to be cash equivalents.

Note 3. Investments

The Company makes investments in accordance with its investment policy which
seeks to minimize the possibility of loss. Investments with original maturities
at date of purchase beyond three months and which mature at or less than twelve
months from the balance sheet date are classified as current. Investments are
accounted for in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No.
115, "Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities."
Investments held-to-maturity at December 31, 2000 consisted of United States
government agency obligations and corporate bonds. Trading investments at June
30, 2001 consisted of marketable equity securities. These securities are
classified as trading securities as the Company may hold these securities for
only a short period of time.

Note 4. Inventory

Inventories consisted of the following (in thousands):

                  June 30, 2001  December 31, 2000
                  -------------  -----------------
Raw materials        $1,496           $1,132
Finished goods          382              154
                     ------           ------
                     $1,878           $1,286
                     ======           ======

Note 5. Loss Per Common Share

In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 128,
"Earnings Per Share" ("EPS"), the Company is required to present both basic and
diluted EPS on the face of the Statement of Operations. Basic EPS excludes
dilution and is computed by dividing income (loss) attributable to common
shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the
period. Diluted EPS is the same as basic EPS for the Company's quarters ended
June 30, 2001 and 2000, because, for loss periods, potential common shares (such
as options) are not included in computing diluted EPS since the effect would be
antidilutive. The number of potential common shares (options, warrants and
convertible preferred stock) as of June 30, 2001 totaled 2,603,175.


Note 6. Preferred Stock

During the first quarter of 2000, the Company completed a private placement of
120,000 shares of Series A convertible preferred stock ("Series A"), resulting
in net proceeds of $11,219,621. The Company also issued five-year warrants to
acquire 240,000 shares of common stock at $10.00 per share. Approximately
$1,275,000 of the net proceeds was allocated to the warrants based on their
relative fair value. The Series A has a dividend of 6% payable quarterly in cash
or in shares of common stock at the option of the Company. For the quarter ended
June 30, 2001 and the year ended December 31, 2000, the Series A dividend was
paid by issuing 13,708 and 40,065 shares of common stock, respectively.

Each share of the Series A is convertible into ten shares of common stock at
$10.00 per share. The Series A is convertible at the option of the holder at any
time or may be redeemed at the option of the Company upon the occurrence of any
of the following events: (a) the common stock closes at or above $20.00 per
share for 20 consecutive trading days, (b) a completion by the Company of a
follow-on public offering of at least $10 million at a per share price of at
least $15.00, (c) the acquisition of the Company by another entity by means of a
transaction that results in the transfer of 50% or more of the outstanding
voting power of the Company, (d) a sale of all or substantially all of the
Company's assets, or (e) at any time after February 28, 2004.

The holders of the Series A have a liquidation preference of $100 per share plus
any accrued but unpaid dividends then held, such amounts subject to certain
adjustments. The liquidation preference is payable upon a change in control of
the Company, thus the Series A is carried in the mezzanine section of the
balance sheet. The holders also have the right to vote together with the common
stock on an as-if-converted basis.

On the date of issuance of the Series A, the effective conversion price of the
Series A was at a discount to the price of the common stock into which the
Series A is convertible. In accordance with EITF 98-5, "Accounting for
Convertible Securities with Beneficial Conversion Features or Contingently
Adjustable Conversion Ratios", this discount totaled $3,003,590 and was recorded
as a preferred stock dividend during 2000.

Note 7. Common Stock

In April 2001, Bayer Diagnostics, the Company's distributor, purchased 1,450,000
shares of common stock of the Company at $12 per share for $17.4 million. This
investment increased Bayer's ownership percentage in the Company from
approximately 7% to 19.9%. The Company and Bayer entered into an amended
distribution agreement to replace the previous distribution agreement between
the parties entered into during 1998.

The 2001 common stock purchase agreement with Bayer contains a provision that,
upon the occurrence of a "change in control", as defined in the agreement, the
Company may be required to compensate Bayer, in cash or shares of common stock,
for any difference between per share prices originally paid by Bayer and the
amount received by the Company's shareholders. In accordance with the
implementation requirements of recently issued and adopted Emerging Issues Task
Force Abstract No. 00-19, the Company has transferred to temporary equity an
amount equal to the "change in control" payment called for by the purchase
agreement. Under the new accounting guidelines, this temporary transfer is
required only for those reporting periods in which the price per share paid by
Bayer is in excess of the fair market value of a common share, as measured by
reference to the NASDAQ National Market.

Note 8. Deferred Revenue

In 2000, the Company began recognizing revenue in accordance with SEC Staff
Accounting Bulletin No. 101. Under SAB 101, payments received under
collaboration agreements are deferred and recognized as income over the period
of the respective agreements. During 2001 and 2000, the Company received
payments as part of collaboration agreements with other entities. Revenue
recognized related to collaboration agreements for the quarters ended June 30,
2001 and 2000 were $550,000 and $71,000, respectively.

Note 9. Significant Customers

During the quarters ended June 30, 2001 and 2000, the Company had sales to one
customer totaling $795,832 and $957,921, respectively. At June 30, 2001 and
December 31, 2000, outstanding receivables from that customer totaled 68% and
92%, respectively, of total receivables.

Note 10. Recent Accounting Pronouncements

On July 20, 2001, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued
Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 141, Business
Combinations, and SFAS No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets. SFAS Nos.
141 and 142 will change the accounting for business combinations and goodwill in
two significant ways. First, SFAS No. 141 requires that the purchase method of
accounting be used for all business combinations initiated after June 30, 2001.
Use of the pooling-of-interests


method is prohibited. Second, SFAS No. 142 changes the accounting for goodwill
from an amortization method to an impairment-only approach. Thus, amortization
of goodwill, including goodwill recorded in past business transactions, will
cease upon adoption of SFAS No. 142, which for companies with calendar year
ends, will be January 1, 2002. We do not anticipate that these standards will
have any material impact on the Company's financial condition, results of
operations or cash flows.



This Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations contains forward-looking statements. Our actual results might differ
materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements due to any
number of factors, including those set forth below under "--Factors That May
Affect Future Results". Additional information concerning factors that could
cause actual results to materially differ from those in the forward-looking
statements is contained in our other SEC filings, copies of which are available
upon request to us.

The following discussion should be read in connection with the unaudited
Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this
report. Unless the context indicates otherwise, all references to us include our
wholly-owned subsidiary, Cardiovascular Diagnostics, Inc., or CVDI.

CVDI develops, markets and manufactures a Thrombolytic Assessment System, or
TAS, consisting of a compact, portable analyzer and disposable test cards which
are inserted into the analyzer to perform a variety of hemostasis tests. In
August 1998, CVDI signed a global distribution agreement with Chiron
Diagnostics, which is now a part of the diagnostics division of the Bayer
Corporation ("Bayer"), to distribute CVDI's PT, aPTT, HMT, and LHMT test cards
in North America and certain South American, European and Asian countries. At
that time, we received an equity investment of $6 million. This distribution
agreement was replaced by an amended distribution agreement in April 2001, at
which time Bayer invested $17.4 million in exchange for 1,450,000 shares of our
common stock.

Given the consolidating hospital market and pricing pressures, our strategy has
evolved towards becoming more focused on the development of theranostic tests
for drugs, some which have narrow ranges between over- and under-dosage.
Theranostics is an emerging new field of medicine that enables physicians to
therapeutically manage coagulation parameters of their patients in the treatment
of angina, myocardial infarction (heart attack), stroke, and pulmonary and
arterial emboli. The Company's flexible technology platform is the primary
driver of existing collaborations with a number of major pharmaceutical
companies, including Aventis Pharmaceuticals and Knoll BASF, to develop
theranostic tests for specific compounds and disease indications being targeted
by these corporations. These and other future collaborations for theranostic
tests also may further demand for our analyzers and routine anticoagulant tests.
We believe that rapid diagnostic capabilities improve patient care and turnover,
and that there is a market trend to obtain diagnostic information faster in
order to effect therapy sooner. We also believe that these trends should allow
us to obtain higher pricing for these theranostic tests. Our development efforts
will continue to focus on expanding our menu of tests to monitor developmental
drugs where rapid therapeutic intervention is needed.



Net sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2001 were $1,322,000 compared to
$1,377,000 in the same period in 2000. Revenues decreased mainly due to lower
quantities of routine test cards and analyzers sold to Bayer during the second
quarter of 2001. The decreased routine test cards were partially offset by
higher revenues from specialty card revenue. The specialty card revenue in 2001
was mainly attributable to a $1.5 million payment from AstraZeneca of which
$500,000 was recognized as revenue in the second quarter of 2001. The remainder
of this payment will be recognized as revenue in the second half of the year.

Cost of goods sold for the quarter ended June 30, 2001 was $1,112,000 compared
to $973,000 in the same period in 2000. This increase was principally due to
higher manufacturing costs during the second quarter of 2001 associated with
our move to a new facility. Thus, the resulting gross profit for the 2001 period
was lower than the second quarter of 2000 as a result of the decreased sales
volume and the noted manufacturing cost increases.

Total operating expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2001 were $2,646,000
compared to $2,062,000 in the second quarter of 2000. General and administrative
expenses were higher in the second quarter of 2001 compared to the same period
in 2000 due to facility relocation costs and technology infrastructure costs
that did not occur in the comparable period in 2000, and also because of
budgeted increased personnel costs. Sales and marketing expenses increased
slightly from 2000 primarily due to training materials expense during the second
quarter of 2001 that did not occur in 2000. Research and development expenses
increased mainly due to budgeted


increases in payroll costs.

Other income (expense) for the quarter ended June 30, 2001, which is composed of
interest income, interest expense, royalty income and development income, was a
net other income of $103,000 compared to a net other income of $388,000 in the
second quarter ended June 30, 2000. Interest income decreased as a result of
lower interest rates and lower average cash and investment balances during the
quarter compared to 2000 as the Bayer investment was not received until May
2001. In addition, development income decreased during the second quarter of
2001 as income was recognized during the second quarter of 2000 related to a
collaborative development agreement with Bayer which ended during 2000.


Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2001 were $2,124,000 compared to
$2,866,000 for the same period in 2000. This decrease was mainly due to
decreased revenue from the sale of analyzers and controls to our distributor in
2001 compared to 2000. This decrease was partially offset by increased
specialty card revenue related to the payment from AstraZeneca in the second
quarter of 2001.

Cost of goods sold for the six months ended June 30, 2001 was $1,858,000
compared to $1,891,000 for the same period in 2000. Cost of goods sold decreased
in 2001 as a result of the lower sales volume, but this decrease was partially
offset by increased manufacturing costs associated with the Company's move to a
new facility. The gross profit percentage decreased compared to the prior year
as a result of these cost increases and lower sales volume.

Total operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2001 were $4,568,000
compared to $3,785,000 for the same period in 2000. This increase is primarily
the result of facility relocation costs, technology infrastructure costs,
increased research costs related to on-going development projects and budgeted
payroll increases in administration and research.

Other income (expense) for the six months ended June 30, 2001 decreased by
$301,000 over the prior year due to decreased interest income as a result of
lower interest rates and average cash and investment balances. Development
income also decreased because a collaboration agreement with Bayer that
generated income the first six months of 2000 was terminated prior to 2001.


At June 30, 2001, we had cash and cash equivalents of $18.5 million and working
capital of $19.2 million, as compared to $9.2 million and $8.4 million,
respectively, at December 31, 2000. During the quarter ended June 30, 2001, we
used cash in operating activities of $4.4 million. The use of cash was primarily
due to funding our net operating loss, increased receivable and inventory
balances and decreased payables. These outflows were somewhat offset by inflows
from amounts that were deferred to subsequent periods. Investing activities
mainly consisted of purchasing fixed assets, consisting mainly of equipment and
improvements for our new facility. Financing activities included the elimination
of our remaining debt with Transamerica Business and a significant equity
financing with Bayer Diagnostics, our distributor, who invested $17.4 million
in exchange for 1,450,000 shares of our common stock at $12 per share. This
increased Bayer's ownership percentage from approximately 7% to 19.9%. We plan
to use the proceeds to fund our operations and to fund development and marketing
of new specialty test cards.

We expect to incur additional operating losses during the remainder of 2001. Our
working capital requirements will depend on many factors, primarily the volume
of future orders of TAS products from our distributor, Bayer Diagnostics. In
addition, we expect to incur costs associated with clinical trials for
development of new test cards. We may acquire other products, technologies or
businesses that complement our existing and planned products, although we
currently have no understanding, commitment or agreement with respect to any
such acquisitions. Management believes that our existing capital resources and
cash flows from operations, including that from our distribution agreement with
Bayer Diagnostics, will be adequate to satisfy our planned capital and
operational requirements.


A number of uncertainties exist that may affect the Company's future operating
results and stock price, including risks associated with development of new
tests, particularly specialty tests that rely on development, regulatory
approval, commercialization and market acceptance of collaborators' new drugs;
market acceptance of TAS; the Company's continuing losses and the resulting
potential need for additional capital in the future; managed care and continuing
market consolidation, which may result in price pressure, particularly on
routine tests; and FDA regulations and other regulatory guidelines affecting the
Company and/or its collaborators. The market price of the common stock could be
subject to significant fluctuations in response to variations in the Company's
quarterly operating results as well as other factors which may be unrelated to
the Company's performance. The stock market in recent years has experienced
extreme price and volume fluctuations that often have been unrelated or
disproportionate to the operating performance of and announcements concerning
public companies. Such broad fluctuations may adversely affect the market price
of the Company's common stock. Securities of issuers having relatively limited
capitalization or securities recently issued in an initial public offering are
particularly susceptible to volatility based on short-term trading strategies of
certain investors.
