NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 10, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX News Network/ -- Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq: CPIX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the hospital acute care and gastroenterology markets, today announced full year 2009 financial results.
"The approval and launch of Caldolor and our initial public offering made 2009 a pivotal year for Cumberland," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. "We are pleased to report that we achieved our objectives of remaining profitable and cash flow positive during the Caldolor launch, and that our balance sheet is now the strongest in the history of the Company."
Net Revenue: For the year ended December 31, 2009, net revenue was $43.5 million, an increase of 24% over the same period in 2008. This growth was due primarily to an increase in volume for Acetadote(R) (acetylcysteine) Injection, the Company's treatment for acetaminophen overdose, as well as initial stocking from the launch of Caldolor(R) (ibuprofen) Injection, Cumberland's recently approved IV treatment for pain and fever. Net revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2009 was $10.7 million, compared to $9.8 million for the same period in 2008.
Operating Expenses: Total operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2009, were $37.8 million, compared to $27.8 million for the same period in 2008. This increase was due primarily to sales and marketing expense associated with the Caldolor launch, particularly the expansion of the Company's hospital sales force, $2.0 million in Caldolor milestone obligations, and a payroll tax expense of $1.1 million related to the exercise of non-qualified options. For the three-month period ended December 31, 2009, total operating expenses were $10.0 million, compared with $8.3 million for the corresponding period in 2008, an increase due primarily to sales and marketing costs associated with the launch of Caldolor.
Net Income: Net income for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $3.1 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to $4.8 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the same period in 2008. This change in earnings per share is due in part to an increase in shares outstanding from Cumberland's initial public offering in 2009. Excluding the aforementioned Caldolor milestone and payroll tax expenses, net income as adjusted for the year ended December 31, 2009, was $4.9 million, or $0.27 per diluted share.
Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2009, was $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to $1.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the corresponding period in 2008. The decrease in net income is due primarily to a $0.9 million increase in net revenues offset by a $1.7 million increase in operating expenses and increased interest expense associated with the Company's new credit facility. This change in earnings per share was due to the decrease in net income and an increase in shares outstanding from Cumberland's initial public offering.
EBITDA: Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $6.6 million compared to $8.1 million for the same period in 2008. Excluding $0.7 million of non-cash stock compensation expense, $1.1 million in payroll taxes from non-qualified stock option exercises and $2.0 million in Caldolor milestone expenses in 2009, and $0.6 million in non-cash compensation expense in 2008, adjusted EBITDA would have been $10.4 million and $8.6 million in 2009 and 2008, respectively, representing growth of 20%.
Balance Sheet: As of December 31, 2009, Cumberland had $78.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $11.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2008. Total assets at December 31, 2009 of $103.7 million represented an increase of $72.6 million over 2008. These increases were due primarily to the net proceeds received from the Company's initial public offering. Cumberland had total debt of $19.8 million, including a current portion of $9.1 million. The Company had net accounts receivable and inventories of $6.2 million and $4.8 million, respectively, at December 31, 2009.
In September 2009, Cumberland successfully launched Caldolor in the United States. The Company's hospital and field sales forces, comprised of 113 experienced sales professionals, are now promoting the product and Caldolor is fully stocked at wholesalers serving hospitals nationwide. The Company is working to introduce Caldolor and secure formulary approval nationally, and the product is now stocked in a number of medical facilities across the country. In addition to personal sales promotion, Cumberland is supporting the product through a multi-faceted marketing campaign, including internet and media advertising, medical society and convention presence, journal publications, and its medical information call center.
Initial Public Offering
In August 2009, Cumberland completed its initial public offering of 5,000,000 shares of common stock at a price of $17.00 per share, raising $85.0 million in gross proceeds. Net proceeds to the Company were $74.8 million after commissions and offering expenses. Cumberland's common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on August 11, 2009, under the trading symbol "CPIX". Proceeds from the offering helped to fund the launch of Caldolor, and Cumberland's continued profitability and positive cash flow have allowed the Company to retain the majority of the proceeds for potential new acquisitions.
In 2009, the Company announced that it entered into exclusive agreements with Phebra Pty Ltd. for commercialization of Caldolor in Australia and New Zealand, and with DB Pharm Korea for registration and commercialization of the product in South Korea. Phebra and DB Pharm Korea will be responsible for obtaining regulatory approval for Caldolor in their respective territories, and for handling ongoing regulatory requirements, product marketing, distribution and sales. Cumberland will maintain responsibility for product formulation, development and manufacturing, and will provide finished product for sale. Cumberland will receive upfront and milestone payments as well as a transfer price from the partnering companies, and will also receive royalties on any sales of Caldolor in those territories.
New Intellectual Property Initiative for Caldolor
In addition to Cumberland's issued patent for Caldolor, the Company has filed the two new patent applications based on its clinical data for the product. Cumberland's research in hospitalized patients uncovered new findings for which the Company previously filed several provisional patent applications. Cumberland has now converted two of these provisional applications to full applications, which address the effect of intravenous ibuprofen in critically-ill, hospitalized patients as well as its effect on patient blood pressure.
Cumberland intends to file a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Acetadote related to the product's ability to treat acute liver failure. Cumberland originally received FDA approval for Acetadote in 2004 for the treatment of acetaminophen overdose in adults, and has since expanded the product's label with a pediatric indication in 2006 and data further supporting the product's safety in 2008. This new sNDA submission is primarily based on a recent multicenter clinical study led by investigators at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. The study results demonstrate that Acetadote is both safe and effective in treating patients suffering from acute liver failure, significantly improving transplant-free survival rates and reducing the number of patients requiring liver transplant.

Caldolor 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 is the first FDA-approved intravenous therapy for fever. Caldolor is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to ibuprofen or other NSAIDs, patients with asthma, urticaria, 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 www.caldolor.com.
Acetadote is used in the emergency department to prevent or lessen potential liver damage resulting from an overdose of acetaminophen, a common ingredient in many over-the-counter painkillers. It is the only approved injectable product in the United States for the treatment of acetaminophen overdose, the leading cause of poisonings presenting in emergency departments in the country(1). 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 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 www.acetadote.net.
Kristalose 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.
