Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Reports 2011 Annual Financial Results - Diluted earnings per share increase 130% in 2011

- Notice of Allowance for Acetadote® patent

- Caldolor® receives marketing approval in Canada

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CPIX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on hospital acute care and gastroenterology, today announced 2011 annual financial results.

Net Revenue:  For the year ended December 31, 2011, net revenue increased to $51.1 million, up 11.5% compared with $45.9 million for 2010.

For the three months ended December 31, 2011, net revenue was $13.0 million, up from $12.8 million in the prior year period.

Operating Expenses:  For the year ended December 31, 2011, total operating expenses were approximately $41.3 million, compared with $39.4 million for 2010. The difference was primarily a result of increased cost of products sold, research and development and general and administrative expenses, partially offset by lower selling and marketing expenses.

Total operating expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2011 were $11.3 million compared to $10.6 million the prior year period. Increases in cost of products sold, research and development expenses and general and administrative expenses were partially offset by a decrease in selling and marketing expenses compared to the prior year.  

Net Income:  Net income attributable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2011 increased more than 130% to $5.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared to $2.5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for 2010.

Net income attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended December 31, 2011, was $0.9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, similar to the same period in 2010.

Balance Sheet:  As of December 31, 2011, Cumberland had $70.6 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $65.9 million at the end of 2010. Total assets at December 31, 2011, were $95.5 million compared to $92.1 million in 2010. At December 31, 2011, Cumberland had total debt of $4.9 million, down from $7.2 million at the end of 2010. Shareholders' equity increased to $82.8 million at the end of 2011 from $77.7 million for the prior period.

"We are pleased to have delivered strong revenue and earnings growth and to have achieved our revenue guidance during 2011," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. "2011 milestones for Cumberland included the approval and launch of the next generation Acetadote®, the acquisition of the worldwide rights to Kristalose®, as well as our addition of a fourth product, Hepatoren™, which we believe is an excellent complement to our current offerings," said Kazimi. "In addition to these milestones, we continued to focus on the incremental growth of our brands including new international partnerships and opportunities for new indications."

Cumberland is introducing earnings guidance for 2012. The Company expects to see diluted earnings to be in the range of $0.32 to $0.36 per share, reflecting growth of approximately 15-30%. This guidance reflects a continuation of existing trends as well as the company's expectation for the implementation of its new commercial strategy. This guidance represents the Company's best estimate of future results, which may be affected by factors described below in "Forward-Looking Statements."

Company Highlights

Acetadote®

In January 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Cumberland's supplemental new drug application (sNDA) for a new formulation of Acetadote, which was the result of a phase IV commitment the Company made to the FDA upon receipt of initial marketing approval of the product. The new formulation does not contain Ethylene diamine tetracetic acid or any other stabilization or chelating agents and is free of preservatives. Cumberland launched the next generation product, which replaced the previously marketed formulation, in the first quarter of 2011 and has worked to ensure widespread distribution and transition to the next generation product.

In February 2012, Cumberland received a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office relating to its patent application for its new formulation of Acetadote (acetylcysteine) Injection, which is used to treat acetaminophen poisoning. The new formulation was FDA approved in 2011 and listed in the "Orange Book," the FDA's official register of approved pharmaceutical products. Once issued, the patent will expire in at least 2025.  This composition of matter patent represents another significant milestone for Cumberland and its Acetadote brand.

Kristalose®

Cumberland reached an agreement in November 2011 to acquire the remaining rights associated with the Kristalose brand, including the trademark and the FDA approved registration for the product from Mylan Pharmaceuticals. Cumberland will provide a royalty on product sales in exchange for these assets.

Caldolor®

An exclusive agreement was reached with Harbin Gloria, a China based pharmaceutical company, for the commercialization of Caldolor and Acetadote in China. Under the terms of the agreement, Harbin Gloria will have exclusive rights to register and commercialize both products in China. In exchange for the license to the product, Cumberland will receive upfront and milestone licensing payments and royalties on the product sale.

The application for regulatory approval of Caldolor for fever in Canada by Cumberland's partner Alveda Pharma, was approved in December 2011.

About Cumberland Pharmaceuticals

The Company's primary target markets include hospital acute care and gastroenterology. Cumberland's marketed products include Acetadote® (acetylcysteine) Injection for the treatment of acetaminophen poisoning, Caldolor® (ibuprofen) Injection, the first injectable treatment for pain and fever approved in the United States, and Kristalose® (lactulose) for Oral Solution, a prescription laxative.

About Acetadote

Acetadote, administered intravenously within 8 to 10 hours after ingestion of a potentially hepatotoxic quantity of acetaminophen, is indicated to prevent or lessen hepatic injury. Used in the emergency department, Acetadote is the only injectable product approved in the United States to treat overdose of acetaminophen, a common ingredient in many over-the-counter medications. Acetadote is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity or previous anaphylactoid reactions to acetylcysteine or any components of the preparation. Serious anaphylactoid reactions, including death in a patient with asthma, have been reported in patients administered acetylcysteine intravenously. Acetadote should be used with caution in patients with asthma or where there is a history of bronchospasm. The total volume administered should be adjusted for patients weighing less than 40 kg and for those requiring fluid restriction. To avoid fluid overload, the volume of diluent should be reduced as needed. If volume is not adjusted fluid overload can occur, potentially resulting in hyponatremia, seizure and death.  For full prescribing information, visit www.acetadote.net.

About Caldolor

Caldolor is indicated for the management of mild to moderate pain and management of moderate to severe pain as an adjunct to opioid analgesics, as well as the reduction of fever in adults. It was the first FDA-approved intravenous therapy for fever. Caldolor is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to ibuprofen or other NSAIDs, patients with asthma, urticarial, or allergic type reactions after taking aspirin or other NSAIDs. Caldolor is contraindicated for use during the peri-operative period in the setting of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Caldolor should be used with caution in patients with prior history of ulcer disease or GI bleeding, in patients with fluid retention or heart failure, in the elderly, those with renal impairment, heart failure, liver impairment, and those taking diuretics or ACE inhibitors. Blood pressure should be monitored during treatment with Caldolor.  For full prescribing information, including boxed warning, visit www.caldolor.com.

About Kristalose

Kristalose is indicated for the treatment of acute and chronic constipation. It is a unique, proprietary, crystalline form of lactulose, with no restrictions on length of therapy or patient age. Initial dosing may produce flatulence and intestinal cramps, which are usually transient.  Excessive dosage can lead to diarrhea with potential complications such as loss of fluids, hypokalemia and hypernatremia. Nausea and vomiting have been reported. Use with caution in diabetics. Kristalose is contraindicated in patients who require a low-galactose diet. Elderly, debilitated patients who receive lactulose for more than six months should have serum electrolytes (potassium, chloride, carbon dioxide) measured periodically. For full prescribing information, visit www.kristalose.com.
