2nd quarter: $18 million (range $10-25 million)
3rd quarter: $46 million (range $8-69 million)
4th quarter: $54 million (range $37-101 million) For all of 2013, the Vascepa consensus sales estimate is $114 million from nine sell-side analysts, according to Bloomberg. It's not necessarily a fair comparison, but investors will be using the early months of the 2005 Lovaza launch as a yardstick by which to judge the performance of Amarin and Vascepa. Here is a chart of Lovaza U.S. sales from the launch in the third quarter 2005 through the second quarter 2008. The chart comes from a Pronova Biopharma slide deck. Pronova made Lovaza for Reliant Pharmaceuticals and later Glaxo, which bought Reliant in 2007.
