DepoMed Management Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

DepoMed disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement made on this call as a result of new information or future developments.

As a reminder, Depomed's policy is to only provide financial guidance and guidance on corporate goals for the current fiscal year and to provide, update or reconfirm its guidance only by issuing a press release or filing updated guidance with the SEC in a publicly-accessible document or providing or updating guidance on a publicly-accessible conference call or webcast investor presentation.

Financial guidance relating to current cash, cash equivalents and investments is based upon balances as of June 30, 2012. All other guidance, including guidance relating to the company's expected expense levels, is as of today, August 2, 2012.

I'll now turn the call over to Jim Schoeneck.

James A. Schoeneck

Thanks, Augie. And thank, all of you, for joining us on the call today. DepoMed has continued to make substantial progress since our last call. Today, I'll summarize the developments in our business, and then I'll turn the call back over to Augie to discuss our quarterly financial results. After that, we'll open the call to questions.

The launch of Gralise is progressing well with increasing prescriptions in numbers of prescribing physicians. Gralise products sales for the quarter were $3.2 million, and in June, we recorded over 10,000 monthly prescriptions for the first time. In July, we hit an all-time weekly high of 2,739 prescriptions.

To date, more than 6,000 healthcare professionals have written prescriptions for Gralise. And the majority of prescriptions are being written by pain specialists and neurologists. With the addition of our flex representatives and the progress in our managed care contracting, we expect Gralise to grow, and perhaps accelerated growth, in the second half of 2012.

Our 78 flex representatives are now on the field, actively promoting Gralise as of the 1st of July. These pharmaceutically experienced and seasoned salespeople are working hand-in-hand with our existing sales force and provide approximately 60% of the calls of a full-time rap. As a reminder, we believe that adding these flex reps will increase our total physician calls by approximately 30%, and we expect to see their impact during the third and fourth quarter of 2012.
