"Gralise and our recent acquisitions, CAMBIA and Lazanda, led the way to a strong quarter, doubling our net product sales over the same period last year.  All four of our products showed prescription growth in Q2 compared to Q1 2014," said Jim Schoeneck, President and Chief Executive Officer of Depomed.  "We believe the growth of our product revenues in Q2 and the integration of new products into our commercial organization demonstrate our ability to build a growth-oriented specialty pharmaceutical company focused on pain and central nervous system disorders. We are also thrilled to add Srini and Scott to our leadership team, increasing our depth and expertise in the pain and CNS markets.  For the remainder of 2014, we are focused on growing product revenues, acquiring additional assets that will enhance our product portfolio and managing expenses to continue to operate at positive cash flow."

Accounting Treatment for the Sale of Type 2 Diabetes Royalty and Milestone Interests to PDL

In October 2013, Depomed sold interests in future royalty and milestone payments in the Type 2 diabetes therapeutic area to PDL Biopharma, Inc. (PDL) for $240.5 million. As a result of ongoing supply order obligations with respect to the underlying royalties, Depomed is accounting for this transaction under the debt accounting method. Although the royalty and milestone payments were sold to PDL, debt accounting requires the Company to continue to recognize the underlying royalties and milestones as revenue and record the proceeds of $240.5 million as a liability. As royalties and milestones are recognized under this arrangement, the liability is reduced and an implied non-cash interest expense is recognized.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, Depomed recognized $33.3 million and $76.1 million, respectively, of non-cash revenues, $4.9 million and $10.3 million, respectively, in non-cash interest expense and $8.3 million and  $20.1 million, respectively, in non-cash tax expense related to this arrangement.

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2014 increased to $67.7 million from $30.0 million for the second quarter of 2013. A summary of total revenues for the first quarter of 2014 as compared to the corresponding prior period is as follows:

(1)   Depomed acquired Lazanda in July 2013 and CAMBIA in December 2013.

Selling, general and administrative expense was $32.6 million for the second quarter of 2014 as compared to $25.4 million for the second quarter of 2013. The increase in 2014 is primarily due to increased sales and marketing expenses associated with the Cambia and Lazanda® product acquisitions which occurred in the second half of 2013 and increased legal expense related to ongoing patent infringement litigation.

Research and development expense was $1.4 million for the second quarter of 2014 as compared to $1.4 million for the second quarter of 2013.

GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $12.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $0.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2013.  The increase in GAAP net income resulted primarily from increased product sales and the recognition of non-cash revenue relating to the royalties sold to PDL as described above under the caption "Accounting Treatment for the Sale of Type 2 Diabetes Royalties and Milestones to PDL."

Cash and marketable securities were $223.7 million as of June 30, 2014 as compared to $213.1 million as of March 31, 2014. The increase in cash and marketable securities in the second quarter of 2014 is primarily related to receipt of $15 million in milestone payments from Mallinckrodt during the second quarter of 2014.

2014 Financial Outlook

Depomed is increasing its guidance for total revenues and GAAP earnings per share  for full year 2014 and is reiterating its guidance for product sales, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share and cash flow for  full year 2014:

  • Product sales of approximately $115 to $125 million
  • Total revenues of approximately $215 to $230 million, which includes non-cash revenues related to the PDL transaction and $15 million in milestones already received in 2014 from Mallinckrodt
  • GAAP earnings per share of approximately $0.36 to $0.51 per share, which includes the non-cash PDL revenues and non-cash PDL interest expense
  • Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share of break-even to $0.16 per share
  • Cash flow of at least break-even excluding payment of approximately $58 million in taxes in the first quarter of 2014 related to fiscal year 2013

The increases in guidance regarding total revenues and GAAP earnings per share are entirely due to increased estimates of non-cash PDL royalty revenues resulting from net sales of Glumetza by Salix Pharmaceuticals during the first half of 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, Depomed includes information about non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, as a useful operating metric for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014 and its 2014 financial outlook. The Company believes that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure, when viewed with our results and projections under GAAP and the accompanying reconciliation, provides supplementary information to investors. The Company uses this non-GAAP measure in connection with its own planning and forecasting purposes and for measuring the Company's performance. This non-GAAP financial measure should be considered in addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, net income or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014 and guidance for the year ending December 31, 2014 are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and represents GAAP earnings per share adjusted to exclude (1) non-cash PDL royalty revenue, net of related costs, (2) non-cash interest expense on the liability related to the sale of future royalties and milestones to PDL, (3) amortization related to product acquisitions, and (4) stock-based compensation expense, and to adjust (5) the income tax provision to reflect the estimated amounts payable in cash. Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, non-GAAP measures used by other companies. 

The following table reconciles the Company's non-GAAP adjusted income/(loss) to GAAP net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014:
