Columbia Laboratories, Inc. (Nasdaq: CBRX) today reported financial results for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2012. Highlights of the third quarter include:
- Total net revenues increased 35% to $6.7 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $4.9 million in the third quarter of 2011.
- Net product revenues were $5.6 million, compared to $4.1 million in the third quarter of 2011, due to higher sales of CRINONE® (progesterone gel) to Merck Serono S.A. (“Merck Serono”) and Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE:WPI)(“Watson”).
- Gross profit on net product revenues was 43%, compared to 24% in the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to greater sales in higher-margin country markets.
- Operating income was $1.4 million, versus an operating loss of $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2011, reflecting the higher revenues and a $0.4 million decrease in operating expenses from prior year levels.
- Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments increased by $2.6 million in the quarter to $25.6 million at September 30, 2012.
Total net revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were $6.7 million, compared to $4.9 million for the third quarter of 2011. The increase in total net revenues was driven primarily by a $1.5 million increase in net product revenues and, to a lesser extent, higher royalty revenues.
- Net product revenues increased to $5.6 million in the third quarter of 2012 as compared to $4.1 million in the third quarter of 2011, primarily due to higher sales to Merck Serono and Watson.
- Total royalty revenues were $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2011, primarily reflecting royalty revenues from Watson on CRINONE products.
- There were essentially no other revenues in the third quarter of 2012 or 2011.
Operating income was $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to an operating loss of $0.6 million in the prior year period. The change primarily reflects the $1.5 million increase in net product revenues and $0.2 million increase in royalty revenues, coupled with the $0.4 million decrease in operating expenses, in the third quarter of 2012.Other income and expense aggregated to a net loss of $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $5.0 million in the third quarter of 2011, primarily reflecting the recognition of the $1.1 million change in the fair value of the warrants issued in conjunction with the October 2009 stock issuance resulting from the increase in Columbia's stock price from June 30, 2012 to September 30, 2012. As a result, the Company reported net income of $0.4 million, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $4.4 million, or $0.05 per basic and $(0.01) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011. At September 30, 2012, Columbia had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $25.6 million, compared to cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $23.0 million at June 30, 2012, and $25.1 million at December 31, 2011. The Company believes its cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments will sustain its operations for the foreseeable future. On October 26, 2012, it was confirmed that the FDA has denied Watson's Formal Dispute Resolution Request (FDRR) related to its New Drug Application (NDA 22-139) for PROCHIEVE for the prevention of preterm birth in women with a short cervical length. Watson filed its FDRR in August of 2012. Financial Outlook Columbia has streamlined the organization to operate as cash flow neutral-to-positive. The Company is currently evaluating potential strategic transactions to add value for its stockholders. Any significant expenses resulting from pursuing a possible strategic transaction could affect cash flow in the quarters incurred.
