NEWARK, Calif., Aug. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Depomed, Inc. (Nasdaq:DEPO) today reported financial results and highlighted operational achievements for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.

"The second quarter marked the 1-year anniversary of the mid-June relaunch of our flagship NUCYNTA franchise,” said Jim Schoeneck, President and CEO of Depomed. “During the first full year after our relaunch, we delivered $274 million of total NUCYNTA net sales, an increase of 59% over the final year of sales under the previous owner. NUCYNTA ER prescriptions continued to accelerate in June, up 26% over the prior year and achieving all-time high prescription volume and market share. And this is against a backdrop of challenging opioid market conditions that see declining prescriptions for the overall market and other leading brands. We are also encouraged by the positive NUCYNTA IR trends, with May and June showing a 2% prescription volume increase year-over-year, reversing the 10% decline seen before our re-launch. We believe that our flagship franchise is well-positioned for continued growth. The rest of our portfolio also performed well, delivering $45 million in combined revenues, with record quarterly revenues from both Gralise and Lazanda. Going forward we remain focused on growing our highly-differentiated portfolio and delivering value to all the groups we serve.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, Depomed includes information about non-GAAP adjusted earnings, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP financial measures, as useful operating metrics for the three month and six periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 and its full year 2016 financial outlook.

The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed with our results under GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, provides relevant and useful supplementary information to analysts, investors, lenders, and our management in assessing the Company’s performance and liquidity. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in connection with its own planning and forecasting purposes, and in part, in the determination of bonuses for executive officer and employees.

The Company uses non-GAAP adjusted earnings and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share to evaluate its period-over-period operating performance because it provides supplementary information on the results of the primary operations of the Company that more consistently correlates with the Company’s underlying operating cash flows of the business by removing non-cash gains or losses and non-recurring cash gains or losses. This measure may also be useful to investors and analysts in evaluating the underlying operating performance of the business.

Non-GAAP adjusted earnings and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and represent GAAP net loss and GAAP net loss per share adjusted to exclude (1) amortization and non-cash adjustments related to product acquisitions, (2) non-cash stock-based compensation expense, (3) non-cash interest expense related to debt, (4) non-recurring costs associated with the Company's defense against the Horizon Pharma hostile takeover bid in 2015 and costs associated with the special meeting requests made by an activist investor in 2016, and by excluding (5) the non-cash portion of income tax benefit/expense related to the period.

The Company uses non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to evaluate its period-over-period operating performance because it provides supplementary information on the results of the primary operations of the Company before investing and financing income and expense and taxes. This measure may be useful to lenders and other parties to evaluate our credit worthiness. This measure may also be useful to investors and analysts in evaluating the underlying operating performance of the business.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and represents GAAP net loss adjusted to exclude (1) amortization and non-cash adjustments related to product acquisitions, (2) non-cash stock-based compensation expense, (3) depreciation, (4) taxes, (5) non-recurring costs associated with the Company's defense against the Horizon Pharma hostile takeover bid in 2015 and costs associated with the special meeting requests made by an activist investor in 2016, (6) interest income and expense, and (7) non-recurring transaction costs associated with product acquisitions. Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, net loss or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
