"Achieving a profitable quarter and positive cash flow is an important milestone for Depomed and demonstrates the progress we have made towards building a sustainable specialty pharmaceutical business.  During the second quarter, we gained traction on the sales and marketing initiatives we took earlier in the year.  In January, we realigned our sales force to increase the frequency of calls on our top potential prescribers and better balance our sales territories, and in the second quarter we launched an eVoucher program for Gralise and other initiatives intended to support the growth of our products.  We are focused on continued growth of our brands and generating positive cash flow," said Jim Schoeneck, President and Chief Executive Officer of Depomed. "In July, we announced our second acquisition of a pain product, Lazanda® (fentanyl) Nasal Spray, an intranasal fentanyl product indicated for the management of breakthrough pain in cancer patients 18 years of age and older who are already receiving and who are tolerant to opioid therapy for their underlying persistent cancer pain.  Acquisition of complementary products is a key element of our strategy.  We also are pleased with the progress of our partner's product candidates under our license and development arrangements."
