NEWARK, Calif., May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Depomed, Inc. (Nasdaq: DEPO) today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

First Quarter 2013 Update

  • Total revenues of $26.2 million, an increase of 55% over first quarter 2012
  • Gralise® (gabapentin) net sales of $6.1 million
  • Zipsor® (diclofenac potassium) net sales of $3.0 million
  • Glumetza® (metformin hydrochloride extended-release) royalties from Santarus, Inc. of $13.3 million
  • Net loss of ($5.5) million or ($0.10) per share, compared to a net loss of ($8.8) million or ($0.16) per share for first quarter 2012
  • $72.9 million of cash and marketable securities and no debt as of March 31, 2013
  • Filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Purdue Pharma related to OxyContin® (oxycodone hydrochloride controlled-release), and filed a suit in April 2013 for infringement of the same patents against Endo Pharmaceuticals related to OPANA®ER (oxymorphone hydrochloride extended-release)
  • "Our results for the first quarter of 2013 illustrate the progress we have made in the past year toward building our specialty pharmaceutical business and increasing revenue from our license and collaboration arrangements.
    During the first quarter, we realigned our sales force to increase the frequency of calls on our top potential prescribers and better balance our sales territories.  We believe that the resulting disruption of the sales rep-physician relationships affected our first quarter prescription growth.  However, we expect that the realignment will create additional demand in future quarters.  In addition, during the first quarter, key wholesalers reduced their inventories of Gralise and Zipsor from December 31 levels, resulting in lower sales.  We believe that Gralise prescription growth and product shipments in April have resumed a growth trend." said Jim Schoeneck , President and Chief Executive Officer of Depomed. "For the remainder of 2013, we are focused on growing product and royalty revenues, managing expenses to achieve positive cash flow and continuing to work towards acquisitions that will enhance the position of the company."

    Depomed First Quarter 2013 ResultsTotal revenues for the first quarter of 2013 were $26.2 million, consisting of $6.1 million of Gralise product sales, $3.0 million of Zipsor product sales, $14.1 million of royalties and $3.0 million of license and other revenue. First quarter 2012 revenues were $16.8 million. The increase in revenues in the first quarter of 2013 was driven by product sales of Gralise and Zipsor and increased Glumetza royalties.Selling general and administrative expense was $26.0 million for the first quarter of 2013 as compared to $21.8 million for the first quarter of 2012. The increase is primarily due to sales and marketing expenses associated with Zipsor, which was acquired in June 2012, and the addition of the part-time contract sales force of 78 sales representatives in June 2012.

    Research and development expense was $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2013 as compared to $3.5 million for the first quarter of 2012. 

    Net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was ($5.5) million, or ($0.10) per share, compared to net loss of ($8.8) million, or ($0.16) per share for the first quarter of 2012.

    Cash and marketable securities were $72.9 million as of March 31, 2013 as compared to $77.9 million as of December 31, 2012. 

    2013 Financial OutlookDepomed is reaffirming the financial outlook previously given for the full year of 2013.

  • Total revenues of approximately $125 to $135 million, which includes approximately $6 million in anticipated milestones under our collaborative arrangements
  • Operating expenses of approximately $120 to $130 million, which includes approximately $4 million of intangible amortization related to the acquisition of Zipsor 
  • Year-end 2013 cash and marketable securities of $70 to $80 million
