Cornerstone Therapeutics Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2009 Financial Results

The non-GAAP measures are subject to inherent limitations because (1) they do not reflect all of the expenses associated with the results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and (2) the exclusion of these expenses involved the exercise of judgment by Cornerstone's management.  Even though Cornerstone has excluded stock-based compensation expense, amortization of product rights and acquisition-related expenses from the non-GAAP financial measures, stock-based compensation is an integral part of Cornerstone's compensation structure, the acquisition of product rights is an important part of its business strategy and the transaction with Chiesi resulted in significant cash expenses.
