Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Reports First Quarter Financial Results

NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CPIX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on hospital acute care and gastroenterology, today announced first quarter 2013 financial results.

Net Revenue:  For the three months ended March 31, 2013, net revenue was $10.3 million, in line with net revenues from the first quarter of 2012.

Operating Expenses:  Total operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2013, were $8.9 million compared to $9.6 million during the prior year period.  This decrease was driven primarily by the realignment of the sales force in late 2012.

Net Income:  Net income attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2013, was $0.9 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the same period in 2012. 

Cash Flow: Operating cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2013, were $1.7 million, compared to $2.6 million, for the prior year period. 

Balance Sheet:  As of March 31, 2013, Cumberland had $70.2 million in cash and marketable securities, with approximately $51.2 million in cash and equivalents and $19.0 million in marketable securities.  Total assets at March 31, 2013, were $98.3 million.

"Our progress during the first quarter included top line results from three new Caldolor studies and new international partnerships for India and Indonesia," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. "We were also pleased with the first quarter financial results maintaining revenues from the prior year quarter, while significantly increasing our net income through the efficient management of our expenses."

Product HighlightsAcetadote®

In January 2013, Cumberland initiated shipments of the Company's Authorized Generic version of Acetadote distributed by Perrigo Company. The Authorized Generic resulted from a License and Supply Agreement with Perrigo and a related Settlement Agreement with Paddock Laboratories, LLC and Perrigo Company signed in November 2012.

On March 19, 2013, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Patent number 8,399,445. The claims of this second Acetadote patent encompass the use of the 200 mg/ml Acetadote formulation to treat patients with acetaminophen overdose. On April 8, 2013, the new Acetadote patent was listed in the FDA "Orange Book" and it is scheduled to expire in August 2025.


In February 2013, Cumberland announced the top-line results from two registry studies evaluating the safety and efficacy of Caldolor (ibuprofen) Injection administered over a shortened infusion time in treating pain and fever in adult patients. The studies involved 450 patients receiving Caldolor at 34 leading medical centers throughout the United States.

The first of two registry studies was a phase IV multi-center, open-label surveillance clinical study to assess the safety and efficacy of ibuprofen administered intravenously over five to ten minutes to adult patients in the hospital setting with temperature fever (>101 degrees F) and/or pain (visual analog scale (VAS) assessment >3). Eligible patients were enrolled to receive one of two dose strengths (400 mg for treatment of fever, 800 mg for treatment of pain) of intravenous ibuprofen for up to a 24- hour dosing period. One hundred fifty patients from 13 clinical sites were enrolled in this study. Intravenous ibuprofen reduced fever and pain and the shortened infusion time was well tolerated.

The second of two registry studies was a phase IV multi-center, open-label surveillance clinical study to assess the safety of ibuprofen administered intravenously over five to ten minutes to adult hospitalized patients undergoing surgical procedures. Eligible patients were enrolled to receive 800 mg intravenous ibuprofen administered at induction of anesthesia and could continue Caldolor therapy for up to 24 hours. Three hundred patients from 21clinical sites were enrolled in this study. The shortened infusion time was well tolerated.

In February 2013, Cumberland also announced favorable top line results from a pilot clinical study evaluating the safety and analgesic efficacy of Caldolor (ibuprofen) Injection compared to ketorolac injection in treating pain following knee arthroscopy procedures in adult patients. The study was conducted at the Ohio State University Medical Center. The study enrolled fifty-one patients and the results indicate, compared to patients receiving ketorolac, patients receiving intravenous ibuprofen experienced less postoperative pain prior to discharge. Patients receiving Caldolor also needed fewer narcotics and were less likely to require narcotics prior to discharge. This data supports the benefits of using Caldolor in a pre-emptive model of multimodal analgesia.

International Agreements

In January 2013, Cumberland entered into agreements with India's Sandor Medicaids Pvt. Ltd. and Indonesia's PT. SOHO Industri Pharmasi (a SOHO Group company) for the commercialization of Caldolor in those countries. Cumberland also entered into an agreement with GerminMED W.L.L. for the commercialization of Acetadote, Caldolor and Kristalose in the Arabian Peninsula.

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 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 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

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.
