Lannett Reports Improved Results For Fiscal 2012 First Quarter

Lannett Company, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: LCI) today reported increased sales and income for the fiscal 2012 first quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Net sales rose to $28.9 million from $25.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2011. Gross profit increased to $8.6 million from $5.9 million for the same period in the prior year. Research and development expenses were $2.4 million, compared with $2.0 million in the fiscal 2011 first quarter. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.7 million, compared with $4.6 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Operating income was $1.4 million versus an operating loss of $739,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2011. Net income attributable to Lannett Company, which included realized losses on investments of $173,000 (pre-tax) and unrealized losses on investments of $827,000 (pre-tax), rose to $206,000, or $0.01 per diluted share. This compares to a net loss attributable to Lannett Company of $404,000, or $0.02 per share, for the prior year first quarter.

“Our fiscal 2012 first quarter revenues, gross profit and net income all significantly improved over the previous quarter, as well as the prior year first quarter,” said Arthur Bedrosian, president and chief executive officer of Lannett. “Higher sales of Levothyroxine and certain pain management products were the key drivers for the solid performance. Moreover, our bottom line results would have been even better but for the losses on investments recorded during the period.

“We are off to a solid start and continue to expect the six products approved since June 23, 2011, along with our 12 additional product applications pending at the FDA, to generate positive momentum for the balance of fiscal 2012,” Bedrosian added.
