"Our team has been very busy during the third quarter, working to maximize the potential of our existing brands while continuing to build a portfolio of differentiated products," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. "We continue to build a specialty pharmaceutical company that delivers sustained growth, profitable operations, and long-term value. Our strategy for achieving our goal is to establish a diversified portfolio of brands through a multi-faceted approach of both acquisition and internal development."

KEY DEVELOPMENTS:

Vibativ Acquisition

On November 6, 2018, the Company announced the acquisition of Vibativ® (telavancin) from Theravance Biopharma. Vibativ is a patented, FDA approved injectable anti-infective for the treatment of certain serious bacterial infections including hospital-acquired and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia and complicated skin and skin structure infections. It addresses a range of Gram-positive bacterial pathogens, including those that are considered difficult-to-treat and multidrug-resistant.

Under the terms of the agreement, which closed on November 12, 2018, Cumberland assumed full responsibility for the product including its marketing, distribution, manufacturing, and regulatory activities. Cumberland will support Vibativ in the U.S. through its established hospital sales organization. The Company expects to selectively expand its sales force, medical science liaison and corporate teams to ensure the needed support of Vibativ as well as its oncology and acute care brands.

RediTrex Approval Submission

Also in November, the Company completed the submission and filed with the FDA an application for the approval of its methotrexate product line which is designed for treating patients with arthritis and psoriasis. This filing follows two meetings held with the FDA to discuss the approval pathway and requirements for the submission. We now await FDA's determination of acceptance of the submission for their review.

Caldolor Submission

In early 2018, the Company completed and filed the application for FDA approval of its Next Generation Caldolor product featuring an improved package and formulation. On August 2, 2018, Cumberland received a complete response from the FDA outlining the additional information needed for the application's approval. The requests were for additional quality and nonclinical data.  The Company held a teleconference with the FDA during the third quarter to discuss their additional requirements. On September 26, 2018, Cumberland submitted an amendment to its application containing additional quality and nonclinical data and now awaits the FDA's response and approval decision.

New Clinical Data Published

In September 2018, the Company announced a new publication in Lung Cancer: Targets and Therapy of a contemporary retrospective series showing that subcutaneous amifostine administered before radiotherapy postponed the onset of acute esophagitis in stage 3 small cell lung cancer patients. Cumberland markets branded amifostine in the U.S. territory under the name Ethyol.

Cumberland also announced two favorable Caldolor study publications. A study at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, published in the Journal Frontiers in Surgery, reveals more effective pain control and opioid-sparing activity with Caldolor when compared to ketorolac in patients undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

Additionally, a clinical trial conducted at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and published online in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery concluded that preemptive analgesia with Caldolor (IV ibuprofen) is more effective than IV acetaminophen in reducing both post-surgical pain and opioid use.

Ifetroban Phase II Studies

During the third quarter, we completed study enrollment for Portaban - the Company's Portal Hypertension clinical program. Portaban is a form of ifetroban and is in development for the treatment of the portal hypertension associated with liver disease. This study was primarily designed to evaluate the safety of ifetroban treatment in this population and was not powered for any efficacy measurement.

An initial review of the data from the study shows ifetroban was safe and well tolerated with no unexpected safety findings. We also measured hepatic venous pressure. Patients enrolled had a greater degree of variability than expected in their hepatic venous pressure gradient, therefore no definitive conclusions could be made on the impact of ifetroban on modulating that gradient.

A full analysis of the data to include biomarkers and exploratory endpoints is ongoing. We will now await results from our other Phase II ifetroban studies before deciding on the best path for approval of our first new chemical entity.

Cumberland also continued to advance its Vasculan and Boxaban clinical pipeline programs, with patient enrollment progressing in each of those Phase II studies.

New CET Small Business Grant Award

CET announced that the U.S. National Cancer Institute awarded $2 million in support of a joint research program involving Cumberland Pharmaceuticals, CET, and researchers at Vanderbilt University. This Phase II grant is awarded under the Small Business Innovation Research funding mechanism and follows successful completion of an initial Phase I award.

The objective of the collaborative research program is to further develop a novel small molecule radiosensitizing agent for the treatment of certain lung cancers. By enhancing the cancer's sensitivity to radiation therapy, this technology addresses a significant medical need of improving clinical outcomes for these oncology patients.

New Board Member

At Cumberland's Board meeting in September, the Company appointed Joseph C. Galante, American music industry executive, as its newest member of its Board of Directors. Mr. Galante is the former Chairman of Sony Music in Nashville and the Former President of RCA Records in New York City.

Mr. Galante joins as the Company's seventh "independent director" as defined under applicable SEC and NASDAQ rules and he serves on the Company's Audit and Compensation Committees. Mr. Galante's successful business track record, entrepreneurial and public company experience make him a valuable new member to Cumberland's Board of Directors.

FINANCIAL RESULTS:

Net Revenue: For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, net revenues were $27.2 million compared to $29.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The major driver of this decrease was the significant sales of Totect last year resulting from a competitive drug shortage.

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 U.S. 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 FDA 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 FDA 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. For more information please visit www.ethyol.com.

About Totect® (dexrazoxane) Injection

Totect is an anthracycline extravasation agent approved by the FDA. Anthracyclines are used to treat many types of cancer and are among the most common cancer therapies.

Anthracycline extravasation occurs when there is accidental leaking of the intravenously-administered medication into the surrounding tissues.  Anthracycline extravasation can result in serious complications for cancer patients including tissue necrosis with skin ulceration. In addition to tissue damage, an anthracycline extravasation may cause damage to the nerves, tendons, muscle, and joints. For more information please visit www.totect.com.

About Vibativ® (telavancin) Injection

Vibativ is an FDA-approved antibiotic used in the treatment of certain serious bacterial infections including hospital-acquired and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (HABP/VABP), as well as complicated skin and skin structure infections (cSSSI).  This lifesaving antibiotic is designed for difficult to treat Gram-positive bacterial infections, including those that are considered multidrug-resistant.  For more information please visit www.vibativ.com.

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

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