Net sales of AMITIZA, reported by Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc. (Takeda) for royalty calculation purposes, increased 13% to $102.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $91.1 million in the same period of 2014. Royalty revenue was $22.9 million compared to $18.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of 23%. Also included in fourth quarter revenue are Takeda AMITIZA sales from R-Tech Ueno of $10.4 million. For the full year 2015, AMITIZA total prescriptions were 1,475,634, an increase of 10% compared to the full year of 2014. Net sales of AMITIZA reported by Takeda for royalty calculation purposes, increased 15% to $380.4 million for the full year of 2015, compared to $331.6 million in the same period of 2014. Royalty revenue for the full year 2015 was $74.1 million compared to $62.8 million for full year 2014, an increase of 18%.

Global Markets

  • In Japan, Sucampo's revenue from sales of AMITIZA to Mylan N.V. increased 74% to $12.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $7.4 million in the same period of 2014. For the full year, revenue from sales of AMITIZA to Mylan N.V. increased 64% to $48.9 million, compared to $29.9 million in 2014. Sucampo earned a $5.0 million milestone payment from Mylan pursuant to the existing license, commercialization and supply agreement in the fourth quarter of 2015. The milestone payment was triggered by the first occurrence of annual net sales of lubiprostone for chronic constipation (CC) in Japan exceeding JPY 10.0 billion. Full year 2014 included a $2.5 million milestone payment from Mylan in the third quarter (then Abbott Japan Co., Ltd.)

Corporate

  • In December 2015, Sucampo completed its acquisition of R-Tech Ueno for 32.8 billion Japanese Yen (JPY), or approximately $275 million. Through the acquisition, Sucampo secured a larger portion of the global economics of AMITIZA, greater control over the manufacturing and supply chain for the product, and acquired new product candidates, including two vascular adhesion protein inhibitors.

  • In October 2015, Sucampo closed a $250.0 million credit facility in connection with the financing of its acquisition of R-Tech Ueno. The loans under the credit facility were fully allocated to institutional investors. The loans under the credit facility bear interest at a LIBOR (subject to a 1% floor) plus 7.25% or base rate (subject to a 2% floor) plus 6.25% and have a final maturity date of October 16, 2021.

  • In October 2015, Timothy P. Walbert joined Sucampo’s Board of Directors. Mr. Walbert currently serves as Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Horizon Pharma plc.

  • In January 2016, Sucampo completed an option and collaboration agreement under which Cancer Prevention Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CPP) has granted Sucampo the sole option to acquire an exclusive license to commercialize the combination product CPP-1X/sulindac in North America. This product is currently in a phase 3 clinical trial for the treatment of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), which has been designated as an orphan indication in the United States and Europe. Enrollment in the study is expected to be complete in the first half of 2016 and the trial is expected to conclude in 2018, with potential for approval as early as 2019.

  • In January 2016, Peter Greenleaf, Sucampo’s Chief Executive Officer, was appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors. Concurrently, John Johnson was appointed the lead independent director.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015 Financial Review

  • Adjusted net income was $19.1 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, during the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to adjusted net income of $9.3 million and diluted EPS of $0.21 in the same period in 2014, an increase of 105%. On a GAAP basis, Sucampo reported net income of $10.2 million and diluted EPS of $0.23 during the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to net income of $9.3 million and diluted EPS of $0.21 in the same period in 2014, an increase of 9%.

  • For the full year 2015, Sucampo reported adjusted net income of $43.5 million and adjusted diluted EPS of $0.95, compared to adjusted net income of $17.9 million and adjusted diluted EPS of $0.40 in the full year 2014, an increase of 143%. On a GAAP basis, Sucampo reported net income of $33.4 million and diluted EPS of $0.73 during the full year 2015, compared to net income of $13.1 million and diluted EPS of $0.29 in the same period in 2014, an increase of 154%.

  • Adjusted EBITDA, defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring and intangible impairment, was $27.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $18.9 million in the same period in 2014, an increase of 46%. For the full year of 2015, adjusted EBITDA was $69.9 million compared to $37.5 million in 2014, an increase of 86%.

  • Total revenues were $55.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $37.8 million in the same period in 2014, an increase of $17.6 million or 47%. The increase was primarily due to the $11.8 million inclusion of R-Tech Ueno results, a milestone payment received from Mylan and higher AMITIZA sales in the US and Japan, offset by an upfront payment received during Q2 2014 under the Global Takeda agreement. For the full year 2015, total revenues were $153.2 million compared to $115.5 million for the full year 2014, an increase of $37.7 million or 33%.

  • Costs of goods sold were $18.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $4.1 million for the same period in 2014, an increase of $14.0 million or 340%. The increase was primarily due to the inclusion of R-Tech Ueno results, which included the step up of inventory and intangible asset amortization of $9.4 million, coupled with an increase in product sales. Excluding the step up of inventory and intangible asset amortization of $9.4 million, cost of goods sold was $8.7 million. For the full year 2015, cost of goods sold was $36.7 million compared to $16.3 million for the full year 2014, an increase of $20.4 million. The increase was primarily due to the inclusion of R-Tech Ueno results, which included the step up of inventory and intangible asset amortization of $9.4 million, coupled with an increase in product sales. Excluding the step up of inventory and intangible asset amortization of $9.4 million, cost of goods sold was $27.3 million, an increase of 67%.

  • Gross Margin, calculated as product sales revenue, less cost of goods sold, as a percentage of product sales revenue, was 39% for the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to 47% for the same period in 2014, a decrease of 8%. The decrease was primarily due to the step up of inventory and intangible asset amortization, offset by the Mylan sales milestone. Excluding the step up of inventory and intangible asset amortization and the Japan Mylan milestone, gross margin was 54%, an increase of 7%. For the full year 2015, gross margin was 45% compared to 51% for the full year 2014, a decrease of 6%. The decrease was primarily due to the inclusion of R Tech Ueno, which included the step up of inventory and intangible asset amortization, offset by the Mylan sales milestone. Excluding the step up of inventory and intangible asset amortization and the Japan Mylan milestone, gross margin was 51%, an increase of 7%.

  • Research and development expenses were $11.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $5.9 million for the same period of 2014, an increase of $5.4 million or 93%. The increase quarter over quarter was primarily due to the inclusion of R-Tech Ueno in Q4, coupled with ongoing development efforts related to lubiprostone for prediatric functional constipation, oral mucositis and non-erosive reflux disease / symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux disease (NERD / sGERD). For the full year 2015, research and development expenses were $33.6 million compared to $20.6 million for the full year 2014, an increase of $13.1 million or 64%. The increase year over year, was primarily due to the inclusion of R-Tech Ueno in Q4, coupled with ongoing development efforts related to Lubiprostone for Prediatric Functional Constipation, oral mucositis and NERD / sGERD.

  • General and administrative expenses were $13.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $7.7 million for the same period of 2014, an increase of $5.5 million or 72%. The increase was primarily due to R-Tech Ueno acquisition costs. For the full year 2015, general and administrative expenses were $35.5 million compared to $31.2 million for the full year 2014, an increase of $4.3 million or 14%. The fluctuation year over year is primarily due to the acquisition of R-Tech Ueno in Q4 and the inclusion of the underlying acquisition costs.

  • Selling and marketing expenses were $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $3.1 million for the same period of 2014, a decrease of $1.9 million or 60%. The decrease was primarily due to the reduction in our direct commercial operations in the U.S. and Europe in the fourth quarter of 2014. For the full year 2015, selling and marketing expenses were $2.8 million compared to $14.5 million for the full year 2014, a decrease of $11.7 million or 80%.

  • The effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2015 was a negative 7%, compared to 48% in the same period of 2014. The reduction in the tax rate is due to the timing of the allowable deduction for intangible impairment expense, the timing and recognition of uncertain tax positions, together with the effect on the treatment of non-U.S. income following the reduction in holdings of Sucampo’s founding stockholders below 50% of Sucampo’s outstanding shares, which occurred in the first quarter of 2015, offset by the timing and deductibility of transaction related costs. The effective tax rate for the full year 2015 was 24%, compared to 52% for the full year 2014. The reduction in the full year tax rate is driven by the same factors that impacted the Q4 tax rate.

Certain prior year Non GAAP amounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current period adjusted presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the reported results of operations. A reconciliation of adjusted Net Income to GAAP Net Income and adjusted EBITDA to income from operations, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is included in the tables below.

Cash, Cash Equivalents, Restricted Cash and Marketable Securities

At December 31, 2015, cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and investments were $163.5 million compared to $110.0 million at December 31, 2014. At December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, notes payable were $252.4 million and $25.8 million, respectively, including current portions of $39.1 million and $8.2 million, respectively. The increase in notes payable is primarily due to the $250.0 million credit facility closed during the fourth quarter of 2015. Sucampo’s net debt position at December 31, 2015 is approximately $104.1 million.

Guidance

Sucampo today reiterated its earnings guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2016. Sucampo expects total revenue of $195.0 million to $205.0 million, adjusted net income of $45.0 million to $50.0 million, adjusted EPS of $0.97 to $1.07, and adjusted EBITDA of $100.0 million to $105.0 million. Adjusted net income guidance excludes amortization of acquired intangibles of approximately $17.6 million and amortization of the remaining inventory step-up costs of approximately $8.9 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP earnings as listed in the first table above, which is GAAP net income before interest, tax, depreciation, amortization, stock option expense and intangible impairment. Sucampo believes that this non-GAAP measure of financial results provides useful information to management and investors relating to its results of operations. Sucampo's management uses this non-GAAP measure to compare Sucampo's performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses, and for budgeting and planning purposes. Sucampo believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Sucampo's financial measures with other companies in its industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors, and that it allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Management of the company does not consider non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Sucampo's financial statements. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP results. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results and guidance prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measure to the non-GAAP financial measure used in this press release are included with the financial tables at the end of this release. Sucampo urges investors to review the reconciliation and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Sucampo's business. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly named non-GAAP measures differently than we do, which limits their usefulness in comparing our financial results with theirs.

About AMITIZA® (lubiprostone)

AMITIZA (lubiprostone) is a chloride channel activator that acts locally in the small intestine. By increasing intestinal fluid secretion, lubiprostone increases motility in the intestine, thereby facilitating the passage of stool and alleviating symptoms associated with CIC. Lubiprostone, via activation of apical CIC-2 channels in intestinal epithelial cells, bypasses the antisecretory action of opiates that results from suppression of secretomotor neuron excitability. Activation of CIC-2 by lubiprostone has also been shown to stimulate recovery of mucosal barrier function and reduce intestinal permeability via the restoration of tight junction protein complexes in ex vivo studies of ischemic porcine intestine.

AMITIZA (24 mcg twice daily) is indicated in the U.S. for the treatment of adults with CIC and opioid-induced constipation (OIC) with chronic, non-cancer pain. AMITIZA (8 mcg twice daily) is also approved in the U.S. for irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) in women 18 years of age and older. In Japan, AMITIZA (24 mcg twice daily) is indicated for the treatment of chronic constipation (excluding constipation caused by organic diseases). In Canada, AMITIZA (24 mcg twice daily) is indicated for the treatment of CIC in adults. In the U.K., AMITIZA (24 mcg twice daily) is indicated for the treatment of CIC and associated symptoms in adults, when response to diet and other non-pharmacological measures (e.g. educational measures, physical activity) are inappropriate. In Switzerland, AMITIZA (24 mcg twice daily) is indicated for the treatment of CIC in adults and for the treatment of OIC and associated signs and symptoms such as stool consistency, straining, constipation severity, abdominal discomfort, and abdominal bloating in adults with chronic, non-cancer pain. The efficacy of AMITIZA for the treatment of OIC in patients taking opioids of the diphenylheptane class, such as methadone, has not been established.
