On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the fourth quarter 2010 was $116.5 million or $0.93 per share, an increase of 23 percent, compared to $94.4 million or $0.85 per share in the fourth quarter 2009. GAAP earnings per share for the fourth quarter 2010 were $0.15, compared to $0.51 in the prior year period.

Full Year 2010 ResultsFor the full year 2010, net revenue increased 28 percent to $3.6 billion, compared to net revenue of $2.8 billion for full year 2009. On a non-GAAP basis, net income increased 22 percent to $425.4 million, or $3.42 per share for the full year 2010, compared to 2009 net income of $348.8 million, or $3.04 per share. GAAP earnings per share were $1.48 for the full year 2010, compared to $1.96 in 2009.
For the full year 2010, adjusted EBITDA was $838.2 million, an increase of 22 percent from the full year 2009. Cash flow from operations was $571.0 million.
"2010 was an extremely successful year for Watson. From a financial perspective, revenues grew by 28 percent and non-GAAP earnings per share increased by 13 percent. Additionally, strong cash flow from operations of over $570 million enabled us to reduce our debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio to approximately 1.2x, which provides us the flexibility to capitalize on future opportunities to grow the Company," said Paul Bisaro, President and CEO. "We also reported continued progress in our Global Brands and Generics businesses. During the year we launched 7 new generic products in the U.S., disclosed the initiation of 17 new patent challenges, and announced an agreement that will enable us to launch generic Concerta® in May 2011. Investing for the future, we filed 34 Abbreviated New Drug Applications in the U.S. and over 145 applications globally."
"In our Global Brands business, we launched three new products in the U.S., completed the phase III study with Columbia Labs on Prochieve® 8% for the prevention of pre-term birth in women with a short cervix, and announced an alliance with Gedeon Richter to develop Esmya® for the treatment of uterine fibroids. We also licensed our first biologic, recombinant follicle stimulating hormone (rFSH)," Bisaro continued.
"During 2010 we continued to successfully integrate our assets in key international markets and invested in the new and exciting high growth markets of Brazil and Mexico through our joint venture with Moksha8. We also realized significant enhancements to our global supply chain through our Operational Excellence Initiative," concluded Bisaro.

For the full year 2010, Global Generics net revenue increased 40 percent to $2.34 billion, including product sales of $2.27 billion and other revenue of $69.5 million.

Adjusted Global Generics gross margin increased from 45.8 percent in 2009 to 49.9 percent in 2010, due to the launch of new products, an increase in extended-release products and enhanced operational efficiencies resulting from the Company's Operational Excellence Initiative.

Distribution revenue consists of sales of third-party products and excludes sales of Watson's brand and generic products.

For the full year 2010, Distribution segment net revenues increased 25 percent or $166.9 million to $830.7 million, compared to $663.8 million in 2009. This increase was driven by sales of new generic and brand products.
Other Operating ExpensesConsolidated general and administrative expenses were $122.3 million in the fourth quarter 2010, an increase of $56.3 million from the fourth quarter 2009, due primarily to a $40 million legal reserve associated with drug pricing litigation and the addition of our international business acquired in 2009. Amortization expense for the fourth quarter 2010 was $52.0 million, compared to $26.5 million in fourth quarter 2009, reflecting amortization related to the Arrow Group acquisition.
