RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Caldolor®

Cumberland completed a series of Phase IV studies for Caldolor in more than 1,000 patients that evaluated the product in both children and adults. Following the completion of these Phase IV studies, the Company submitted a supplemental new drug application (sNDA) to the FDA for the product during the first quarter of 2015. This submission requested changes to the package insert to include pediatric data from Cumberland's post-marketing pediatric development program.

Cumberland is making progress with the FDA regarding the review of the sNDA and anticipates receiving a decision about these requested updates toward the end of this year.

Hepatoren®

Cumberland is developing Hepatoren as a potential treatment for Hepatorenal Syndrome (HRS) - a life threatening condition with a high mortality rate and no approved pharmaceutical therapy in this country.  There is an ongoing study to evaluate the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of Hepatoren for this unmet medical need. The study is stratified into Type I or Type II patients with HRS based upon the progression of their disease.

The Company completed enrollment of the Type II patients and previously announced favorable top line results from that study. Enrollment of the remaining patients in the Type I HRS cohort is well underway and is expected to finish by the end of 2015.

Boxaban®

The Company is developing Boxaban for the treatment of Aspirin-Exacerbated Respiratory Disease (AERD).  AERD is a respiratory disease involving chronic asthma and nasal polyposis that is worsened by aspirin.  No approved pharmaceutical treatment currently exits for AERD in this country.

Cumberland has made progress in enrolling patients in a Phase II clinical study to evaluate Boxaban in those suffering with AERD. The study is designed to gather initial safety and tolerability data on ifetroban in AERD patients.  Enrollment is well underway in this multi-center study. The Company looks forward to announcing findings from this study later this year.

Cumberland Emerging Technologies (CET)

During the second quarter, Cumberland Emerging Technologies renewed collaboration agreements with the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy and the University of Tennessee Research Foundation, while expanding activities with Vanderbilt University. CET also announced a major expansion in the tenant footprint at the CET Life Sciences Center with the arrival of InvisionHeart, Inc. which now occupies nearly 4,400 square feet of office and manufacturing space.

CET was formed to identify biopharmaceutical innovation at regional academic research centers and team with the scientists to advance their research and provide a long term pipeline of new product candidates. The Life Sciences Center has a growing number of successful tenants and graduates and provides laboratory and office space, equipment and infrastructure to early-stage biomedical ventures.

About Acetadote® (acetylcysteine) Injection

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 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.com.

About Caldolor® (ibuprofen) Injection

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® (lactulose) Oral Solution

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.

About Omeclamox®-Pak (omeprazole, clarithromycin, amoxicillin)

Omeprazole is an antisecretory drug, which works by decreasing the amount of acid the stomach produces. Clarithromycin and amoxicillin are antibacterial drugs, which inhibit the growth of bacteria allowing the stomach lining to heal. Omeclamox-Pak is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to omeprazole, any macrolide antibiotic or penicillin. The safety and effectiveness of Omeclamox-Pak in the pediatric population has not yet been established. Omeclamox-Pak was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2011. For full prescribing information, visit www.omeclamox.com.

About Vaprisol® (conivaptan hydrochloride) Injection

Vaprisol an intravenous treatment for hyponatremia used in the critical care setting. Hyponatremia is an electrolyte disturbance in which sodium ion concentration in blood plasma is lower than normal.  This can be associated with a variety of critical care conditions including congestive heart failure, liver failure, kidney failure and pneumonia.  The product is a vasopressin receptor antagonist that raises serum sodium levels and promotes free water secretion. Vaprisol was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2005 for euvolemic hyponatremia and in 2007 for hypervolemic hyponatremia. For full prescribing information, visit www.vaprisol.com.

The Company provided the above adjusted supplemental financial performance measures, which are considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. These financial measures should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). The definition of these supplemental measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others.

Because these supplemental financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the Company's reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety. A reconciliation of the supplemental financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the tables accompanying this release.

Cumberland's management believes these supplemental financial performance measures are important as they are used by management, along with financial measures in accordance with GAAP, to evaluate the Company's operating performance.  In addition, Cumberland believes that they will be used by certain investors to measure the Company's operating results. Management believes that presenting these supplemental measures provides useful information about the Company's underlying performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that Cumberland does not believe are indicative of its core business performance or reflect long-term strategic activities.  Certain of these items are not settled through cash payments and include: depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation expense and income taxes.  Cumberland utilizes its net operating loss carryforwards to pay minimal income taxes.  In addition, the use of these financial measures provides greater transparency to investors of supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making, including the evaluation of the Company's operating performance.

The Company defines these supplemental financial measures as follows:

  • Adjusted Earnings: net income adjusted for the impact of income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, share-based compensation expense and other  income and interest expense.

    (a) Represents the share-based compensation expense of Cumberland.


    (b) Represents Cumberland's fee paid to the FDA in connection with a request for expanded pediatric labeling for Caldolor.


    (c) Represents Cumberland's gain on contingent consideration as the result of a reduction in the cost of the Vaprisol acquisition.

  • Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share: Adjusted Earnings divided by diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding.
