Acorda Therapeutics Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACOR) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

“AMPYRA sales rebounded strongly in the second quarter, as expected, based on underlying product demand and a return to normal inventory levels by the end of the first quarter. Quarterly sales patterns are uneven, and we do not expect to see the same rate of quarter-over-quarter growth for the rest of the year. We are reiterating our full-year AMPYRA net revenue guidance of $285-$315 million,” said Ron Cohen, M.D., Acorda Therapeutics’ President and CEO. “We were also pleased with our acquisition of two promising products, Qutenza and NP-1998. These will allow us to expand into the area of neuropathic pain management.”
