Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Reports 41% Revenue Growth
Company Also Delivers Growing Cash Flow from Operations
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE (Tuesday, November 8, 2022) - Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CPIX), a specialty pharmaceutical company, announced today that its product portfolio of FDA-approved brands delivered combined revenues of $11.4 million during the third quarter of 2022 - a 41% increase over the prior year period. Cumberland also reported a 19% increase in net revenues for the first nine months of the year compared to the same period in 2021.
The Company ended the third quarter with $91 million in total assets, $53 million in total liabilities, and $38 million of shareholders’ equity.
“Fueled by initial sales from our newest product Sancuso, we saw tremendous growth during the third quarter and the first nine months of 2022,” said A.J. Kazimi, CEO of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. “As we move through the final quarter of the year, we look forward to building on this success. As always, we remain sharply focused on our mission of improving patient care through the delivery of high-quality medicines.”
Sancuso® Acquisition and Transition
Following its acquisition of Sancuso from Kyowa Kirin, Inc. in January, Cumberland largely completed the transition of the product, assuming responsibilities for its sales, distribution and promotion in the U.S. Sancuso is an FDA-approved prescription patch that prevents nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing certain types of chemotherapy.
Sancuso® Promotion
Cumberland formed a new sales division, Cumberland Oncology, to support Sancuso and also entered into an agreement with Verity Pharmaceuticals International Limited for the national co-promotion of the brand.
Under the terms of the agreement, Verity will utilize its established oncology commercial organization to co-promote Sancuso throughout the U.S. Verity completed the training and launched its sales efforts in support of Sancuso during the third quarter of 2022.
RediTrex® Agreement with Nordic Pharma
In July 2022, Cumberland entered into an amendment to its agreement with Nordic Pharma addressing the responsibilities and financial arrangements regarding Cumberland’s license to Nordic’s methotrexate line of products for the U.S., which are marketed under the brand name RediTrex.
Based on the amendment, Nordic has the opportunity to assume responsibility for commercializing the methotrexate products in the U.S. after March 31, 2023. Until then, Cumberland will continue to distribute

and support the RediTrex product line. Following the return of the license, Nordic will provide Cumberland with a royalty on their future sales of the product through April 2035.
New Headquarter Office Location
In October 2022, Cumberland relocated its headquarters to the Broadwest campus in the Vanderbilt/West End corridor of Nashville. The new, state-of-the-art headquarters keeps the company close to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, enabling their continued collaboration as Cumberland works to develop new medicines for the future.
The move also allows Cumberland to accommodate recent and future growth. Following the relocation, Cumberland expects to expand its organization to over 100 individuals, with a majority working from the Nashville headquarters.
Ifetroban Clinical Studies
Currently, Cumberland is sponsoring three Phase II clinical trials to evaluate its ifetroban product candidate, for patients with:
Aspirin-Exacerbated Respiratory Disease (“AERD”), a severe form of asthma;
Systemic Sclerosis, a debilitating autoimmune disorder characterized by diffuse fibrosis of the skin and internal organs; and
Cardiomyopathy associated with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic neuromuscular disease that results in deterioration of the skeletal, heart and lung muscles.
The company is also working on an application to the FDA for a fourth Phase II program, which will evaluate the use of ifetroban to treat patients with Progressive Fibrosing Interstitial Lung Diseases.
The company-sponsored AERD study has been closed to enrollment. Once quality checks on the study database are complete, analysis of the results will be conducted and top-line results will then be announced. Once the results of its other sponsored Phase II studies are available, Cumberland will decide on the best development path for the registration of ifetroban.
Net Revenue: For the three months ended September 30, 2022, net revenues from continuing operations were $11.4 million, a 41% increase over the prior year period.
Net revenue by product for the third quarter of 2022, included $4.0 million for Sancuso®, $3.9 million for Kristalose®, $1.9 million for Vibativ® and $0.9 million for Caldolor®.
Year-to-date 2022 net revenues were $33 million, a 19% increase compared to $28 million for the first nine months of 2021.
Year-to-date net revenues by product were $11.4 million for Kristalose, $10.8 million for Sancuso, $6.0 million for Vibativ and $3.1 million for Caldolor.
Operating Expenses: Total operating expenses for the third quarter were $11.7 million, compared to $9.6 million for the prior year period.
Year-to-date 2022 operating expenses were $36.3 million, compared to $31.0 million for 2021.
Earnings: Net loss for the third quarter of 2022 was $0.4 million, a significant improvement over the $1.1 million net loss during the prior year period.

Adjusted earnings: Adjusted earnings for the third quarter of 2022 were $1.4 million, or $0.10 per share, a significant improvement over the $0.3 million adjusted loss during the same period in 2021. The third quarter 2022 adjusted earnings calculation does not include the benefit of the $1.0 million of Vibativ cost of goods, which were received with the product acquisition. It also does not include the benefit of the $0.4 million of Sancuso cost of goods, which were received with that product’s acquisition.
Cash Flow: Year-to-date cash flow from operations was $5.6 million, a 28% increase over the $4.4 million during the prior year period.

The Company provided the above adjusted supplemental financial performance measures, which are considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under applicable SEC rules and regulations. These financial measures should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). The definition of these supplemental measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others.
Because these supplemental financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the Company's reported results of operations, management encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety. A reconciliation of the supplemental financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the tables accompanying this release.

Cumberland's management believes these supplemental financial performance measures are important as they are used by management, along with financial measures in accordance with GAAP, to evaluate the Company's operating performance. In addition, Cumberland believes that they will be used by certain investors to measure the Company's operating results. Management believes that presenting these supplemental measures provides useful information about the Company's underlying performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that Cumberland does not believe are indicative of its core business performance or reflect long-term strategic activities. Certain of these items are not settled through cash payments and include: depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation expense and income taxes. Cumberland utilizes its net operating loss carryforwards to pay minimal income taxes. In addition, the use of these financial measures provides greater transparency to investors of supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making, including the evaluation of the Company's operating performance.

The Company defines these supplemental financial measures as follows:
Adjusted Earnings (loss): net income (loss) adjusted for the impact of discontinued operations, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, share-based compensation, nonrecurring gains and interest income and interest expense.

    (a) Represents the share-based compensation of Cumberland.
(b) Represents the forgiveness of the PPP Loan by the Small Business Administration.
(c) Represents the gain in insurance proceeds.
Adjusted Diluted Earnings (loss) from continuing operations Per Share: Adjusted Earnings (loss) from continuing operations divided by diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding.
