Upward Revised Guidance for Fiscal 2013

Based on Lannett’s current outlook, the company revised its financial guidance upward for the fiscal 2013 full year as follows:

  • Gross margin as a percentage of net sales of approximately 36% to 37%, up from 34% to 35%;
  • R&D expense in the range of $17 million to $18 million, down slightly from $18 million to $20 million;
  • SG&A expense ranging from $24 million to $25 million, versus $21 million to $23 million;
  • Other income of approximately $1.5 million, essentially equal to the litigation settlement the company reported in the first quarter; and
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $10 million to $12 million, unchanged from previous guidance.
