Columbia Laboratories, Inc. (CBRX) today reported financial results for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2013. Highlights include:
- Total net revenues were $8.0 million in the second quarter of 2013, as compared to $8.2 million in the second quarter of 2012. A $1.6 million increase in net product revenues from Merck Serono S.A. (“Merck Serono”) and higher royalty revenues from Actavis, Inc. (“Actavis”) were offset by the absence of net product revenues from Actavis in the 2013 quarter.
- For the first half of 2013, total net revenues increased 18% to $14.3 million, as compared to $12.1 million in the first half of 2012. A $4.0 million increase in net product revenues from Merck Serono and higher royalty revenues from Actavis were offset by the absence of net product revenues from Actavis in the first half of 2013.
- Income from operations was $2.8 million in the second quarter of 2013, as compared to $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2012, reflecting higher gross margins in the 2013 quarter.
- For the first half of 2013, income from operations was $3.8 million, as compared to $0.4 million in the first half of 2012, reflecting increased revenues and higher gross margins in the 2013 period.
- Total cash and cash equivalents increased by $2.2 million in the quarter to $31.4 million at June 30, 2013.
- Agreement with Merck Serono for CRINONE® (progesterone gel) extended through May 2020.
- Relocation of the Company to Boston completed.
“We are pleased to announce another consecutive quarter of profitability and positive operating cash flows, reflecting the ongoing promotion and growth of CRINONE by Actavis and Merck Serono in their respective territories,” said Frank Condella, Columbia's President and CEO. “We continue to strengthen our financial position, which we believe increases our capability to pursue strategic options to increase stockholder value.”
Second Quarter Financial Results
Total net revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were comprised primarily of net product revenues for international sales of CRINONE to Merck Serono, and royalties from Actavis on Actavis' total net sales of CRINONE in the U.S.
Total product revenues were $7.0 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $7.4 million in the second quarter of 2012.
- Product revenues from CRINONE sold to Merck Serono increased by $1.6 million, or 29%, as compared to the second quarter of 2012. The higher revenues reflect a 23% increase in volume quarter over quarter, coupled with increased shipments to countries with higher net selling prices.
- There were no revenues from product sold to Actavis, compared to $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2012. As previously disclosed, Columbia does not expect any material orders from Actavis for CRINONE during 2013, as Actavis currently has sufficient inventory of CRINONE.
Total royalty revenues were $0.9 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2012, reflecting increased royalty revenues from Actavis on CRINONE products.
Gross profit increased by $1.3 million to $5.1 million in the three months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $3.8 million in the three months ended June 30, 2012. Gross profit as a percentage of total net revenues was 65% for the second quarter of 2013, compared to 46% in the second quarter of 2012. The higher profit margins in the 2013 quarter resulted primarily from a more favorable sales mix.
General and administrative expenses increased by $0.4 million to $2.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $1.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. This increase reflects severance and relocation costs incurred in the second quarter of 2013.
There were no research and development costs in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $0.2 million in the 2012 quarter. The decrease reflects the elimination of our R&D activities in 2012.
The Company reported net income of $2.7 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $1.9 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012.
At June 30, 2013, Columbia had cash and cash equivalents of $31.4 million, compared to cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $28.6 million at December 31, 2012.
Columbia sells product to our partners in full batches; any shift in the timing of batch orders can make comparison with the prior periods difficult. In the first half of 2013, a shift in the timing of batch orders contributed to the 51% increase in our net product revenues from Merck Serono as compared to the first half of 2012. Due to this timing shift, we anticipate that product revenues from Merck Serono will be lower in the second half of the year than in the first half. We continue to expect ongoing year-over-year growth in product revenue from Merck Serono and royalty revenue from Actavis going forward.
With the relocation to Boston now complete, the Company expects reduced operating expenses and to remain cash-flow positive on an ongoing basis. We continue to evaluate potential strategic transactions to add value for its stockholders. Any significant expenses associated therewith may negatively impact cashflow and operating expenses in the period incurred.
