As of September 30, 2016, the Company had approximately $91 million in Total Assets including $50 million in cash and marketable securities. Total Liabilities were approximately $17 million and Total Shareholder's Equity was just under $75 million. Cumberland also had approximately $43 million in tax net operating loss carryforwards, resulting from the prior exercise of stock options.

QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS:

"We have been busy putting the pieces in place to build our sales momentum while expanding our clinical pipeline and maintaining a strong financial position," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. "We entered the second half of 2016 with renewed excitement and remain focused on our key operating objectives which we believe will take the company to the next level."

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS:

Ethyol®

Cumberland launched Ethyol® (amifostine) for Injection in the United States at a National Meeting of the Company's sales organization in September. Ethyol is an FDA approved hospital product used to support the care of oncology patients. It is a cytoprotective drug indicated to support select patients undergoing radiation treatment as well as those undergoing chemotherapy for certain cancers. At the National Sales Meeting, Cumberland's hospital sales organization was trained and prepared to reintroduce branded amifostine to a new generation of oncologists. For the last several years, no company has been educating physicians on the benefits of this product for their patients.

This is the first product to be licensed by Cumberland from Clinigen Group plc under the Strategic Alliance entered into last year and also Cumberland's first oncology product. Under the terms of the Ethyol license agreement, Cumberland is responsible for all distribution, marketing, promotion, and medical support of the product in the U.S.

Portaban™

Cumberland announced its fourth clinical development program for ifetroban to develop Portaban, an oral form of ifetroban, for the treatment of portal hypertension associated with liver disease.  Portal hypertension, a complication of liver cirrhosis, is an increase in the blood pressure within the portal venous system. This increased pressure in the portal veins may lead to the development of large, swollen veins which can rupture and bleed, resulting in potentially life-threatening complications. Preclinical studies have shown that ifetroban can reduce portal pressure, inflammation, and fibrosis in multiple models of liver injury.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has cleared Cumberland's investigational new drug application, or IND, for a Phase II clinical study of Portaban. The Company is in the process of preparing for the study, expected to begin later this fall.

FINANCIAL RESULTS:

Net Revenue:  For the three months ended September 30, 2016, net revenues were $8.8 million, compared to $7.9 million for the prior year period.  Net revenue by product for the three months ended September 30, 2016, included $3.7 million for Kristalose®, $1.8 million for Acetadote®, including $1.2 million for the Company's Authorized Generic, $1.4 million for Caldolor®, $0.8 million for Omeclamox®-Pak, $0.5 million for Vaprisol®, and $0.5 million for Ethyol®.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, net revenues were $23.9 million compared to $25.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Operating Expenses:  Total operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2016 were $8.7 million, compared to $7.6 million during the prior year period. Total operating expenses for the first nine months of 2016 were $24.4 million similar to $24.5 million for 2015.

Earnings:  Net income for the third quarter of 2016 was $0.1 million and $0.01 per diluted share, similar to the prior year period. Adjusted Earnings for the third quarter were $1.0 million or $0.06 per share, compared to $0.7 million or $0.04 per share for the prior year period. The definition and reconciliation of Adjusted Earnings to net income is provided in this release.

Balance Sheet:  At September 30, 2016, Cumberland had $50.1 million in cash and marketable securities, with approximately $35.5 million in cash and equivalents and $14.6 million in marketable securities.  Total Assets at September 30, 2016 were $91.1 million.  Total Liabilities were $16.7 million, including $3.7 million outstanding on our revolving line of credit, resulting in Total Shareholder's Equity of $74.5 million.  Cumberland also had approximately $43 million in off-balance sheet tax net operating loss carryforwards, resulting from the prior exercise of stock options.

About Acetadote® (acetylcysteine) Injection

Acetadote, 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 www.acetadote.com.

About Caldolor® (ibuprofen) Injection

Caldolor is indicated in adults and pediatric patients 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.  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 a history of asthma or other 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.   

About Kristalose® (lactulose) Oral Solution

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. For full prescribing information, visit www.kristalose.com.

About Omeclamox®-Pak (omeprazole, clarithromycin, amoxicillin)

Omeprazole is an antisecretory drug, which works by decreasing the amount of acid the stomach produces. Clarithromycin and amoxicillin are antibacterial drugs, which inhibit the growth of bacteria allowing the stomach lining to heal. Omeclamox-Pak is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to omeprazole, any macrolide antibiotic or penicillin. The safety and effectiveness of Omeclamox-Pak in the pediatric population has not yet been established. Omeclamox-Pak was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2011. For full prescribing information, visit www.omeclamox.com.

About Vaprisol® (conivaptan hydrochloride) Injection

Vaprisol is an intravenous treatment for hyponatremia used in the critical care setting. Hyponatremia is an electrolyte disturbance in which sodium ion concentration in blood plasma is lower than normal.  This can be associated with a variety of critical care conditions including congestive heart failure, liver failure, kidney failure and pneumonia. 

The product is a vasopressin receptor antagonist that raises serum sodium levels and promotes free water secretion. Vaprisol was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2005 for euvolemic hyponatremia and in 2007 for hypervolemic hyponatremia. For full prescribing information, visit www.vaprisol.com.

About Ethyol® (amifostine) Injection

Ethyol is indicated to reduce the cumulative renal toxicity associated with repeated administration of cisplatin in patients with advanced ovarian cancer. It is indicated to reduce the incidence of moderate to severe xerostomia in patients undergoing post-operative radiation treatment for head and neck cancer, where the radiation port includes a substantial portion of the parotid glands.

The Company provided the above adjusted supplemental financial performance measures, which are considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. These financial measures should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). The definition of these supplemental measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others.

Because these supplemental financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the Company's reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety. A reconciliation of the supplemental financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the tables accompanying this release.

Cumberland's management believes these supplemental financial performance measures are important as they are used by management, along with financial measures in accordance with GAAP, to evaluate the Company's operating performance.  In addition, Cumberland believes that they will be used by certain investors to measure the Company's operating results. Management believes that presenting these supplemental measures provides useful information about the Company's underlying performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that Cumberland does not believe are indicative of its core business performance or reflect long-term strategic activities.  Certain of these items are not settled through cash payments and include: depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation expense and income taxes.  Cumberland utilizes its net operating loss carryforwards to pay minimal income taxes.  In addition, the use of these financial measures provides greater transparency to investors of supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making, including the evaluation of the Company's operating performance.

The Company defines these supplemental financial measures as follows:
