Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CPIX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on hospital acute care and gastroenterology markets, today announced first quarter 2012 financial results.

Net Revenues:  For the three months ended March 31, 2012, net revenues were $10.3 million, compared to $10.7 million in the prior year period.  Revenues for the quarter were impacted by the timing of wholesaler buying patterns.  During the quarter, the Company recognized revenue of $0.5 million related to an upfront payment received in connection with its recent license agreement for China.

Operating Expenses:  Total operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012, were $9.6 million compared with $9.3 million for the prior year period.  The net effect of the increase was primarily due to increases in research and development and general and administrative expenses partially offset by a decrease in selling and marketing expenses.

Net Income:  Net income attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2012, was $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to $0.7 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the prior year period.

Cash Flow:  Operating cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2012, were $2.6 million, up from $1.0 million, for the prior year period.  The same wholesaler buying patterns that impacted revenues during the quarter positively affected cash flow from operations as those receivables were collected during the quarter.

Balance Sheet:  As of March 31, 2012, Cumberland had $71.6 million in cash and securities, with approximately $55.6 million in cash and equivalents and $16.0 million in marketable securities. Total assets at March 31, 2012, were $94.6 million.

"The first quarter of 2012 was marked by several key milestones for Cumberland, including the agreement with Harbin Gloria Pharmaceuticals to license Acetadote® and Caldolor® in China and the allowance of a patent for our new Acetadote formulation," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals.  "Demand for our products remains strong and we are on track to meet our 2012 financial guidance, as well accomplishing our key objectives for the year."

Company Highlights Acetadote®

In February 2012, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (the "USPTO") allowed a patent for claims encompassing the new formulation of Acetadote® (acetylcysteine) Injection. The Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA") approved the new Acetadote formulation in 2011.  The allowance included a 270-day patent term adjustment granted by the USPTO, with the resulting patent scheduled to expire in May 2026.

International Markets

In February 2012, Cumberland entered into an exclusive agreement with China's Harbin Gloria Pharmaceuticals Co., Ltd. for the commercialization of Acetadote® (acetylcysteine) Injection, which is used to treat acetaminophen overdose, and Caldolor® (ibuprofen) Injection, which is used to treat pain and fever in the hospital setting. The agreement provides Harbin Gloria exclusive rights to register and commercialize both drugs in China, further expanding Cumberland's international presence.

About Cumberland PharmaceuticalsCumberland 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.

About AcetadoteAcetadote, 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

About CaldolorCaldolor 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

About KristaloseKristalose 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.
