SAN DIEGO, Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cadence Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CADX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on acquiring, in-licensing, developing and commercializing proprietary products principally for use in the hospital setting, today reported financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013.

Recent highlights included:

  • Cadence entered into an agreement and plan of merger agreement with Mallinckrodt plc and one of its wholly owned indirect subsidiaries pursuant to which Mallinckrodt commenced a tender offer on February 19, 2014, to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Cadence common stock at a purchase price of $14.00 per share in cash.
  • Net product revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $33.3 million, representing increases of $16.2 million, or 95%, from the fourth quarter of 2012, and $4.3 million, or 15%, from the third quarter of 2013.
  • License revenue of $2.0 million was recognized in the fourth quarter of 2013 from a one-time commercial milestone payment pursuant to the company's license agreement with Terumo Corporation.
  • Gross margin on sales of OFIRMEV was 65% for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 58%, for the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $57.4 million as of December 31, 2013.

Financial Results
Cadence's net product revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2013, was $33.3 million, an increase of 95% from the $17.1 million in net product revenue recognized for the three months ended December 31, 2012. For the year ended December 31, 2013, Cadence's net product revenue was $110.5 million, an increase of 121% from the $50.1 million reported in 2012.

For the three months ended December 31, 2013, Cadence reported a net loss of $4.1 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to a net loss of $21.4 million, or $0.25 per share, for the comparable period in 2012. For the year ended December 31, 2013, Cadence reported a net loss of $24.3 million, or $0.28 per share, compared to a net loss of $81.0 million, or $0.95 per share, in 2012. Included in the company's net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, was a gain of $7.7 million recorded with respect to the waiver, termination and sale of Cadence's Incline assets in January 2013, for which the company received cash payments totaling $14.7 million. The company's net loss for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, included impairment charges and a loss on the sale of equipment totaling $8.6 million pertaining to certain assets involved with the manufacture of OFIRMEV under the terminated development and supply agreement with Baxter Healthcare Corporation. Additionally, the Company recognized disposal costs of $0.3 million during the fourth quarter of 2012 for the inventory held while manufacturing was suspended at Baxter.

The company's gross margin on sales of OFIRMEV for the three months ended December 31, 2013, was 65%, compared to 58% for the same period in 2012. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, Cadence reported a gross margin of 66%, compared to 54% for 2012. These year-over-year increases were primarily the result of lower freight costs in 2013 and the impact of price increases implemented in 2012 and 2013. Operating expenses, including patent amortization, decreased $3.6 million, or 12%, for the three months ended December 31, 2013, to $26.8 million, from $30.3 million for the same period in 2012. This decrease was primarily attributable to impairment charges and a loss on the sale of equipment totaling $8.6 million pertaining to certain assets involved with the manufacture of OFIRMEV under the terminated development and supply agreement with Baxter that were recognized during the three months ended December 31, 2012. Similar charges were not recorded in 2013, however the company incurred higher legal and clinical trial expenses during the three-months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, Cadence reported operating expenses of $102.1 million, a decrease of $1.5 million, or 1%, as compared to $103.6 million for 2012. This decrease was primarily attributable to the impairment charge and loss on equipment sale recorded during the fourth quarter of 2012, mostly offset by higher legal expenses, clinical trial expenses and corporate development activities in 2013 as compared to 2012.

As of December 31, 2013, Cadence held cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $57.4 million, a decrease of $4.7 million from $62.1 million at December 31, 2012. Net accounts receivable at December 31, 2013, was $9.3 million, representing approximately 30 days of sales outstanding.

About OFIRMEV® (Acetaminophen) Injection
OFIRMEV (acetaminophen) injection (1000 mg / 100 mL, 10 mg / mL; for intravenous use only), Cadence Pharmaceuticals' proprietary intravenous formulation of acetaminophen, is indicated for the management of mild to moderate pain, the management of moderate to severe pain with adjunctive opioid analgesics, and the reduction of fever. The FDA approval of OFIRMEV was based on data from clinical trials in approximately 1,020 adult and 355 pediatric patients. These trials included two studies evaluating the safety and effectiveness of OFIRMEV in the treatment of pain, and one study evaluating OFIRMEV in the treatment of fever. The effectiveness of OFIRMEV for the treatment of acute pain and fever has not been studied in pediatric patients less than 2 years of age.

Important Safety Information

RISK OF MEDICATION ERRORS AND HEPATOTOXICITY
Take care when prescribing, preparing, and administering OFIRMEV injection to avoid dosing errors which could result in accidental overdose and death.


OFIRMEV contains acetaminophen. Acetaminophen has been associated with cases of acute liver failure, at times resulting in liver transplant and death. Most of the cases of liver injury are associated with the use of acetaminophen at doses that exceed the recommended maximum daily limits, and often involve more than one acetaminophen-containing product.

OFIRMEV is contraindicated in patients with severe hepatic impairment, severe active liver disease or with known hypersensitivity to acetaminophen or to any of the excipients in the formulation.  Acetaminophen should be used with caution in patients with the following conditions: hepatic impairment or active hepatic disease, alcoholism, chronic malnutrition, severe hypovolemia, or severe renal impairment. Rarely, acetaminophen may cause serious skin reactions such as acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP), Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS), and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), which can be fatal.  Discontinue OFIRMEV immediately if symptoms associated with allergy or hypersensitivity occur, or at the first appearance of skin rash. Do not use in patients with acetaminophen allergy.

The most common adverse reactions in patients treated with OFIRMEV were nausea, vomiting, headache, and insomnia in adult patients and nausea, vomiting, constipation, pruritus, agitation, and atelectasis in pediatric patients. The antipyretic effects of OFIRMEV may mask fever in patients treated with postsurgical pain. OFIRMEV is approved for use in patients ≥ 2 years of age. Do not exceed the recommended maximum daily dose of OFIRMEV. OFIRMEV should be administered only as a 15-minute infusion.

For more information, please see the full OFIRMEV Prescribing Information, including the complete boxed warning, which is available at www.OFIRMEV.com or www.cadencepharm.com.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
