Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Financial And Operating Results

Financial Results for the Quarter and Full Year 2012

For the fourth quarter of 2012, Sucampo reported total revenue of $34.9 million compared to $14.2 million for the same period in 2011, a growth of approximately 145%. The key components of revenue for the fourth quarter included R&D revenue of $15.1 million, product royalty revenue of $14.2 million and product sales revenue of $5.0 million which compare to $2.7 million, $10.8 million and nil, respectively, in the same period of 2011.

For the full year 2012, Sucampo reported total revenue of $81.5 million, compared to $54.8 million for the full year 2011, a growth of approximately 49%. The key components of total revenue for the full year 2012 were product royalty revenue of $50.7 million, R&D revenue of $21.5 million and product sales revenue of $5.0 million compared to $41.5 million, $9.2 million and nil, respectively, for the full year 2011. The increase in R&D revenue was primarily due to the receipt of the $15.0 million milestone payment from Abbott upon the first commercial sale of AMITIZA at a dosage strength of 24 micrograms in Japanese adults.

U.S. net sales of AMITIZA, as reported to us by our partner, Takeda, increased 31% to $74.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $56.8 million in the same period of 2011. U.S. net sales of AMITIZA, as reported to us by our partner, Takeda, increased 20% to $271.9 million for the full year of 2012, compared to $226.4 million in the same period of 2011. For both periods the increase in AMITIZA U.S. net sales was primarily due to both volume and price increases, as reported to us by our partner.

Operating Expenses

R&D expenses were $7.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $7.7 million for the same period of 2011. For the full year 2012, R&D expenses were $21.3 million, compared to $33.5 million for the full year 2011. For both periods, the decrease was primarily due to higher expenses in 2011 associated with the completion of the phase 3 OIC trial for AMITIZA.
