Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Reports Third Quarter And Nine Months 2012 Financial And Operating Results

Operating Expenses

R&D expenses were $5.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $8.7 million for the third quarter of 2011. For the first nine months of 2012, R&D expenses were $14.2 million, compared to $25.8 million for the same period of 2011. For both periods, the decrease was primarily due to higher expenses in 2011 associated with the phase 3 trial of lubiprostone for OIC patients.

G&A expenses were $7.3 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $7.9 million for the third quarter of 2011. G&A expenses were $22.6 million for the first nine months of 2012, compared to $29.3 million for the prior year period. For both periods, the decrease in G&A expense was primarily due to lower legal, consulting and other professional expenses as a result of the conclusion of certain legal matters, partially offset by increases in corporate marketing and branding and staff organizations to support business growth.

Selling and marketing expenses were $4.3 million for third quarter of 2012, compared to $2.2 million for the third quarter of 2011. Selling and marketing expenses were $14.5 million for the first nine months of 2012 compared to $6.7 million for the prior year period. The increase in selling and marketing expenses relates primarily to some non-recurring pre-commercialization planning activities for AMITIZA and RESCULA.

Income from Operations

For the third quarter of 2012, income from operations was a loss of $1.6 million, a decrease of $2.9 million or 63%, compared to a loss from operations of $4.5 million for the third quarter of 2011.
