Financial Results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $60.8 million, an increase of $11.4 million, or 23%, compared to $49.4 million in the third quarter of 2012. The increase was driven by $17.5 million in revenue from the launch of 23 new codes or presentations of 10 new products since September 30, 2012, including Zolodronic Acid at market formation, partially offset by reductions in demand driven by the abatement of market shortages and increased competitive pricing pressures. Gross profit for the third quarter of 2013 was $18.6 million, or 30.5% of net revenue, inclusive of $1.1 million of incremental expense due to unabsorbed manufacturing costs at our SCP facility, compared to $7.2 million, or 14.6% of net revenue, in the third quarter of 2012. Adjusted Gross Profit for the third quarter of 2013 was $19.1 million, or 31.5% of net revenue, compared to $9.5 million, or 19.2% of net revenue in the third quarter of 2012.
