  • Q3 2013 total net revenues were $266.0 million, up 12% compared to $238.2 million in Q3 2012.
  • U.S. CUBICIN® (daptomycin for injection) net product revenues increased 10% to $229.9 million from $208.3 million in Q3 2012. CUBICIN international revenues were $13.0 million compared to $12.0 million in Q3 2012.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.41 compared to $0.62 in the third quarter of 2012. GAAP diluted EPS was $(0.50) compared to $0.55 in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted operating income was $52.5 million compared to $77.7 million in the third quarter of 2012. GAAP operating income was $4.1 million compared to $70.4 million in the third quarter of 2012.

“This was an exciting quarter for Cubist as we extended our global leadership in the acute care environment and took a major step towards achieving our Building Blocks of Growth strategic goals. We believe our transactions to acquire Trius and Optimer will enhance our product portfolio and position us to further leverage our differentiated business model with our promising pipeline candidates,” said Michael Bonney, Chief Executive Officer of Cubist. “We look forward to another important quarter ahead that we expect will include top-line data readouts from the cUTI and cIAI trials of our Phase 3 candidate ceftolozane/tazobactam.”

Third quarter ENTEREG® (alvimopan) net product revenues were $13.7 million, up 36% compared to $10.1 million in the third quarter of 2012. Service revenues for the Company’s co-promote of DIFICID® (fidaxomicin) for the third quarter were $3.8 million. Other revenues for the third quarter were $5.6 million, which primarily consist of a $5.0 million milestone from Novartis due to achieving a predetermined level of CUBICIN sales in its territories.

As of September 30, 2013, Cubist had $997.8 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments. The total number of Cubist’s common shares outstanding as of September 30, 2013, was 74,011,707.

Recent Pipeline Highlights

  • On October 22, 2013, Cubist announced that the Company has submitted a new drug application to the FDA requesting approval of tedizolid phosphate for the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections;
  • On October 21, 2013, Cubist announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the Company’s supplemental new drug application for the use of ENTEREG to accelerate gastrointestinal recovery following any surgery that includes a bowel resection with primary anastomosis, expanded from the previously approved indication in patients requiring surgery for colorectal disease; and
  • On July 18, 2013, Cubist announced the initiation of Phase 3 efficacy studies of bevenopran in patients with chronic non-cancer pain and opioid-induced constipation.

Recent Corporate Highlights

  • On September 23, 2013, Kenneth Martin was appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors;
  • On September 13, 2013, Cubist announced the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 in connection with its pending acquisition of Optimer Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The transaction is expected to close this week;
  • On September 11, 2013, Cubist announced that it completed its acquisition of Trius Therapeutics, Inc. for an aggregate upfront cash consideration of $704.4 million, excluding transaction costs;
  • On September 10, 2013, Cubist announced the closing of its offering of $800.0 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior unsecured notes. The Company intends to use the majority of the proceeds to fund its acquisition of Optimer and for general corporate purposes; and
  • On July 30, 2013, Cubist announced the planned acquisitions of Trius and Optimer.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Cubist uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP adjusted operating income and non-GAAP diluted EPS, to assess and analyze its operational results and trends and to make financial and operational decisions. Cubist believes these non-GAAP financial measures are also useful to investors because they provide greater transparency regarding Cubist’s operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to measurements required by GAAP, such as net income, operating income and earnings per share, and should not be considered measures of Cubist’s liquidity. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are unlikely to be comparable with non-GAAP information provided by other companies. Reconciliations between non-GAAP financial measures and GAAP financial measures are included in the tables accompanying this press release after the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
