Year-to-date net revenues were $23.5 million, up 25% from the prior year period.

QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Continued a company-wide strategic review of products, partners, and organization
  • Increased sales team and national territories to improve support for acute-care key brands Caldolor®, Vibativ® and Vaprisol®
  • Finalized Vibativ agreements with Hikma Pharmaceuticals LLC for the Middle East, R. Pharma LLC for Russia and the CIS, and Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd for India
  • Provided the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with additional data in support of approval submission for a new line of methotrexate products designed for the treatment of patients with arthritis and psoriasis
  • Completed a submission to the FDA in support of an update to our Caldolor approval that included new geriatric, shortened infusion, pediatric, and safety data

"We continued to make progress in the second quarter towards our goal of building a company that offers long-term, sustainable growth," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals.  "We remain in a strong financial position with a solid balance sheet and positive cash flow from operations. The momentum we've generated during the first half of this year has put us on a path for a very strong second half, and we remain optimistic that 2019 will be a standout year for Cumberland."

KEY DEVELOPMENTS:

Methotrexate

In January 2019, the Company received notification from the FDA that the new drug application (NDA) for our new line of methotrexate products is complete and acceptable for filing. Furthermore, the FDA has set September 2019 as the Prescription Drug User Fee (PDUFA) action date for an approval decision.

In November 2018, we submitted the NDA for approval from the FDA. These products are designed to treat adult and pediatric patients with rheumatoid arthritis, as well as adults with psoriasis. During 2019, we provided additional data to the FDA to address a number of requests arising from their review of our NDA.

Caldolor

In January 2019, the FDA approved the application for Cumberland's next generation Caldolor product, featuring a new, patented formulation in a more convenient to use package. In April 2019, the Company began initial shipments of the product to select customers. A full launch of this next generation product is planned for late 2019.

In addition, we completed a submission to the FDA in support of an update to our Caldolor approval that included new geriatric, shortened infusion, pediatric, and safety data.  Aiming to further expand the product's label, we provided important data generated from our clinical studies regarding an optimal infusion time, additional safety information, as well as geriatric and pediatric administration. The revised label will also include a class label update on the use of NSAIDs with aspirin.

Meanwhile, we completed enrollment in our study of Caldolor in newborns with ages ranging from birth to six months of age. Once the gathering and evaluation of the study data is complete, we will provide top line results from this trial.

Cumberland Strategic Review

On March 29, 2019, we announced that we had initiated a strategic review of our brands, capabilities and international partners. This review followed our accelerated business development initiative, which delivered a series of transactions. Because of that progress, we felt that it was prudent to take a fresh look at our portfolio, partners, and organization to ensure we have the proper focus and capabilities. As a result:

  • We executed a License and Distribution agreement with Hong Kong WinHealth Pharma Group Co. Limited (WinHealth) for our Caldolor and Acetadote brands in China and Hong Kong. We anticipate WinHealth will provide $2 million in milestone payments and up to an estimated $290 million in revenue contribution over a ten - year period for supplies of the products following their registration in China.
  • We also entered into a Strategic Alliance agreement with WinHealth to explore future business opportunities that will further the mission and goals of each organization. Founded in Hangzhou, China and currently headquartered in Hong Kong, WinHealth has developed a wide breadth of capabilities including drug licensing, product development and registration, and has established a strong network of distribution and sales promotional capabilities for the Chinese market. Further, WinHealth has established partnerships with international companies that include Boehringer-Ingelheim, Janssen, Novartis, Pfizer, and Roche, generating approximately $330 million in annual sales in 2018.
  • In addition, WinHealth entered into an agreement with Cumberland Emerging Technologies (CET) to make a $1 million investment through the purchase of shares of CET stock. As part of that agreement, WinHealth obtained a Board position at CET and the first opportunity to license CET products for the Chinese market.
  • We completed the assignment and amendment of a Commercialization Agreement with Hikma Pharmaceuticals LLC (Hikma) to register and distribute Vibativ in a number of countries throughout the Middle East. Hikma is a multinational pharmaceutical company currently headquartered in London, United Kingdom. Originally founded in Amman, Jordan the company now has market representation throughout the world, with a particular focus in the Middle East and North African regions. Hikma develops, manufactures, and markets a broad range of branded and non-branded generic medicines, generating over $2 billion in gross sales during 2018.
  • We also completed the assignment and amendment of a Commercialization Agreement with R-Pharma JSC (R Pharma) associated with ongoing distribution of Vibativ in Russia and a number of adjacent countries in Eastern Europe. R-Pharma is one of the leading multinational pharmaceutical organizations based in Russia. Headquartered in Moscow and focusing in a wide breadth of therapeutic areas in the specialty and hospital care markets, R-Pharma generated over $1.6 billion in revenues in 2018.
  • Cumberland also completed the assignment and amendment of a Commercialization Agreement with Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Limited (Dr. Reddy's) for the registration and distribution of Vibativ in India. Dr. Reddy's is a multinational pharmaceutical company based in Hyderabad, India. The company currently markets over 190 medications through their commercial operations in over 35 countries. Combined with their extensive network of manufacturing capabilities, Dr. Reddy's generated over $2.2B in sales during their 2018 - 2019 fiscal year.
  • In addition, we also signed a new License and Distribution agreement with DB Pharm Korea Co., Ltd. (DB Pharm) for Vibativ in South Korea. DB Pharm is also currently distributing our Caldolor product in that market.
  • Our hospital product efforts will now be focused on our three key acute care products - Caldolor, Vibativ and Vaprisol. In order to support this acute care business, we have completed the expansion of our hospital sales division, as well as our field-based medical science team.
  • Lastly, we also concluded the License and Distribution agreement with Teligent Inc. for Caldolor in Canada.

The Company provided the above adjusted supplemental financial performance measures, which are considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under applicable SEC 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 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:

  • Adjusted Earnings (loss): net income (loss) adjusted for the impact of income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, share-based compensation, Vibativ cost of product sold and interest income and interest expense.

            (a) Represents the share-based compensation of Cumberland.

            (b) Represents the non-cash impact of the Vibativ cost of products sold.  Cumberland has elected to add these costs back in the calculation of adjusted earnings as all the Vibativ inventory was transferred to Cumberland as part of the transaction with Theravance at no additional cost to the consideration agreed for the product acquisition.    

  • Adjusted Diluted Earnings (loss) Per Share: Adjusted Earnings (loss) divided by diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding.
