As of December 31, 2018, the total assets of the Company grew to $112.7 million, including $36.2 million in cash and investments. Total Liabilities were $57.1 million and Total Shareholder's Equity was $55.8 million. Cumberland also had fully reserved for $44.1 million in tax net operating loss carryforwards, resulting from the prior exercise of stock options.

Fourth Quarter Highlights:

  • Acquired Vibativ® from Theravance Biopharma
  • Expanded bank credit facility to $20 million to fund acquisition
  • Filed New Drug Application with FDA for methotrexate product line
  • Closed agreement with GastroEntero-Logic (GEL) to acquire Omeclamox®-Pak
  • Data published from several favorable clinical studies featuring Caldolor®
  • Expanded Cumberland Emerging Technology's (CET) university collaborations

"In 2018, we made significant progress on our goals of expanding our commercial portfolio and advancing our product pipeline," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. "Because of this progress, we believe that 2019 is shaping up to be one of solid revenue growth. We are very excited about the potential of several catalysts including the Vibativ acquisition, the introduction of our next generation Caldolor product, and potential approval of our new methotrexate product line."

Cumberland expanded its commercial product line in 2018 with the acquisition of Vibativ from Theravance Biopharma. Vibativ is a patented, FDA approved anti-infective injectable product, designed to treat certain serious bacterial infections, including hospital-acquired pneumonia and complicated skin infections. It addresses a range of Gram-positive bacterial pathogens, including those that are considered difficult-to-treat and multidrug-resistant such as MRSA. Wide-spread use of generic anti-infective products has led to a sharp increase in the number of patients experiencing resistance to certain products, resulting in a shift to the clinical standard of care for anti-biotic treatments. Cumberland believes that Vibativ is a product uniquely positioned to address such concerns, and an excellent strategic match for the Company's hospital product infrastructure.

Early in 2018, Cumberland submitted an application to the FDA for the approval of its Next Generation Caldolor product. After a series of interactions with the FDA and amendments to the application, Cumberland was subsequently notified of the product's FDA approval in early 2019. The Company is now preparing for the launch of this patented product which features an improved package and formulation.

In late 2018, Cumberland closed on an agreement with GEL to acquire the assets associated with Omeclamox-Pak. With the closing of the agreement, Cumberland no longer provides GEL with royalties on sales and is now responsible for maintaining the FDA approval and overseeing the product's packaging, trademarks, and other assets.

Caldolor, the Company's IV ibuprofen product, was also the subject of favorable clinical publications in 2018. One study, conducted at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, found that that the use of Caldolor, compared to IV ketorolac, significantly lowered postoperative pain scores and opioid consumption in patients undergoing arthroscopic knee surgeries. Another clinical trial conducted at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine concluded that preemptive anesthesia with Caldolor is superior when compared to IV acetaminophen in reducing post-surgical pain and opioid use in patients undergoing the surgical removal of impacted wisdom teeth.

Through Cumberland Emerging Technologies (CET), the Company is establishing a pipeline of new product candidates and fostering innovation by partnering with academic centers. During 2018, CET expanded its network of institutional collaboration by entering into agreements with Louisiana State University and the Medical University of South Carolina.

During late 2018, Cumberland completed the submission and filed with the FDA a New Drug Application for the approval of its methotrexate product line. This line of methotrexate products is designed for the treatment of adult and pediatric patients with rheumatoid arthritis as well as adults with psoriasis. In January 2019, the FDA accepted the submission as complete and ready for review, providing a target approval decision date for September 2019.

Meanwhile, Cumberland continued to advance its clinical programs in 2018, which feature several new product candidates in Phase II studies. The Company completed study enrollment for Portaban, the Company's Portal Hypertension clinical program. Initial review of the data from the study shows ifetroban to be safe and well tolerated with no unexpected safety findings. Cumberland also continued to advance its Vasculan and Boxaban clinical programs, with patient enrollment progressing in each of those Phase II studies.

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. 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) for Injection

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.  For more information please visit www.vibativ.com.

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:

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

(c)  Reflects the initial Reditrex submission fee paid to the FDA to evaluate our request for product approval.

(d) Represents the expense of Cumberland shares donated to the Cumberland Pharma Foundation.

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