Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

- Caldolor® Pediatric Pain Study Completed

01 Nov, 2012, 16:00 ET from Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CPIX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on hospital acute care and gastroenterology markets, today announced third quarter 2012 financial results.

Net Revenues:  For the three months ended September 30, 2012, net revenues were $12.5 million, compared to $13.1 million in the prior year period.  Prior year revenues were boosted by an increase in Acetadote® volume due to shortages of competitive products.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, net revenues were $35.2 million compared with $38.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Operating Expenses:  Total operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2012, were $9.6 million compared with $10.0 million for the prior year period.  This decrease was driven by lower selling and marketing expenses associated with our new commercial strategy, partially offset by an increase in R&D expenses.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, total operating expenses were $29.6 million, compared to $30.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Net Income:  Net income attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended September 30, 2012, was $1.9 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, up 11% from $0.09 per diluted share for the prior year period.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, net income attributable to common shareholders was $4.0 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared with $4.7 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the same period in 2011.

Cash Flow:  For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, operating cash flows were $5.1 million, compared to $7.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Balance Sheet:  As of September 30, 2012, Cumberland had total assets of $96.9 million. Cash and securities as of September 30, 2012 were $69.4 million, with approximately $50.8 million in cash and equivalents and $18.6 million in marketable securities.

"We continue to remain in a strong financial position with three marketed products, attractive margins and continued double digit earnings growth," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. "We achieved another quarter of steady financial results and we remain on track to hit our 2012 guidance."

Company Highlights

Caldolor®

In September 2012, Cumberland announced the top-line results from a clinical pediatric pain study evaluating the safety and analgesic efficacy of Caldolor® (ibuprofen) Injection in treating pain in tonsillectomy patients ranging from 6 to 16 years old.

When administered prior to surgery, Caldolor use was associated with a statistically significant reduction in the number of post-operative narcotic doses required in patients in the efficacy evaluable population. There were also consistent trends toward reduction in pain scores and the incidence of nausea and vomiting in patients receiving Caldolor. Importantly, no safety concerns were observed during this study.

This study, in combination with the ongoing work to evaluate the treatment of fever in children, will be used to pursue a pediatric indication for Caldolor.

About Cumberland Pharmaceuticals

Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the acquisition, development and commercialization of branded prescription products. 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. Cumberland is dedicated to providing innovative products that improve quality of care for patients. For more information, please visit the Company's website at www.cumberlandpharma.com.

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, for management of moderate to severe pain as an adjunct to opioid analgesics, and for 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.
