BETHESDA, Md., March 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Sucampo) (Nasdaq:SCMP) today reported consolidated financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014.

For the fourth quarter of 2014, Sucampo reported year-over-year growth of 54% to $37.8 million in total revenue, including 25% growth to $18.6 million in product royalty revenue from sales of AMITIZA in the U.S. and 44% growth to $7.4 million in product sales revenue of AMITIZA in Japan. Included in total revenue and contract and collaboration revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014 is an upfront payment from Takeda Pharmaceuticals (Takeda) related to the global license, development, commercialization and supply agreement (Global Takeda Agreement) for AMITIZA® (lubiprostone). Sucampo recognized $8.0 million of the $14.0 million of the upfront payment in the fourth quarter of 2014. Excluding this upfront payment, Sucampo reported year-over-year growth of 22% in total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014.

Sucampo reported GAAP net income of $9.3 million and fully-diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.21 during the fourth quarter of 2014. Sucampo also reported GAAP net income of $13.1 million and fully-diluted EPS of $0.29 for the full year of 2014. Excluding special items, Sucampo reported non-GAAP net income of $17.9 million and fully-diluted EPS of $0.40 for the full year of 2014, both in line with prior issued guidance. Reconciliations for the fourth quarters and full years 2013 and 2014 are included in the financial section.

"In 2014, following a detailed review of our business and opportunities, Sucampo took significant steps to implement our corporate strategy by securing the foundation of our AMITIZA revenues, focusing the organization, strengthening our scientific capabilities, and prioritizing our development pipeline," said Peter Greenleaf, Chief Executive Officer of Sucampo. "We have already executed on these near-term priorities in our strategy, while achieving strong financial results for our shareholders. As we look to the future, we remain focused on operational excellence with an eye toward continued revenue growth and the progression and diversification of our development pipeline."

Fourth Quarter 2014 Operational Review

AMITIZA

United States (U.S.)

  • AMITIZA total prescriptions were 354,354, an increase of 5%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. Net sales of AMITIZA, reported by Takeda for royalty calculation purposes, increased 17% to $91.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $78.0 million in the same period of 2013. Net sales of AMITIZA, reported by Takeda for royalty calculation purposes, increased 18% to $331.6 million for the full year of 2014, compared to $282.1 million in the same period of 2013.
  • Sucampo, Takeda and R-Tech Ueno, Ltd. (R-Tech) entered into a settlement and license agreement with Anchen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Par Pharmaceutical, Inc. (Par) and Par Pharmaceutical Companies, Inc. that resolved the patent infringement litigation among the parties related to AMITIZA 8 mcg and 24 mcg soft gelatin capsules for chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) and irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C). In addition, Sucampo and Takeda amended our existing collaboration and license agreement and associated agreements covering the U.S. and Canada for AMITIZA. As a result of these agreements, among other changes, starting in 2021, Sucampo will split the gross profits from the sale of the generic or authorized generic version of AMITIZA 8 mcg and 24 mcg soft gelatin capsules for CIC and IBS-C by Par and split annual net sales revenue of the branded versions of AMITIZA with Takeda. In the event Par chooses to launch an authorized generic version, Sucampo will supply Par under a manufacturing and supply agreement at a negotiated supply price.
  • Sucampo, R-Tech, Takeda, and certain affiliates of Takeda filed a patent infringement lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, Ltd. and Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, Inc. (collectively, Dr. Reddy's) related to an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) that Dr. Reddy's filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market, sell and use a generic version of the 8 mcg and 24 mcg AMITIZA soft gelatin capsule products. Under the Hatch-Waxman Act, as a result of the patent infringement lawsuit, final FDA approval of Dr. Reddy's ANDA will be stayed up to 30 months from the date of receipt of the notice letter.

Global Markets

  • In Japan, Sucampo's revenue from sales of AMITIZA to Abbott Japan Co., Ltd. (Abbott) increased 44% to $7.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to the same period of 2013. Sucampo's revenue from sales of AMITIZA to Abbott increased 103% to $32.1 million for the full year of 2014, compared to the same period of 2013.
  • We entered into a Global Takeda Agreement which expanded Takeda's exclusive rights to commercialize AMITIZA in the E.U. and all other global markets outside of the U.S., Canada, Japan and the People's Republic of China. Upon signing this agreement, we received an upfront payment of $14 million. Sucampo is responsible for the first $6 million in development expenses with Takeda responsible for all development activities and subsequent expenses. We also signed an exclusive global manufacturing and supply agreement with R-Tech for clinical and commercial supplies of AMITIZA in most global markets.
  • Early in 2015, the European Mutual Recognition Procedure (MRP) for AMITIZA for the treatment of CIC was successfully completed in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Spain, resulting in a recommendation for marketing authorization. Following the positive MRP outcome, each member state is expected to issue a national marketing authorization. In February 2015, Ireland became the first of these countries to issue a marketing authorization.
  • In Canada, Sucampo's New Drug Submission for AMITIZA for CIC and opioid-induced constipation (OIC) indications with Health Canada was accepted. A decision is anticipated in the second half of 2015.

Research and Development

  • In February 2015, the first patient was dosed in a phase 2 trial of cobiprostone for non-erosive reflux disease (NERD) in proton pump inhibitors refractory patients.
  • In October 2014, four abstracts on lubiprostone were presented at the American College of Gastroenterology 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting.
  • Sucampo decided not to pursue further clinical development of the intravenous and oral versions of the ion channel activators that were in development for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) after determining that the commercial potential did not warrant further investment into this program.

Corporate

In the fourth quarter 2014 and in early 2015, we expanded our management team and board of directors with the following seasoned industry executives:

  • Andrew Smith, FCMA, CGMA was appointed Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Smith previously served as Vice President, Operations & Finance of Sucampo.
  • John H. Johnson and Robert J. Spiegel, M.D., FACP, were appointed to board of directors.
  • Peter Kiener, D. Phil was appointed Chief Scientific Officer.
  • Matthias Alder was appointed Executive Vice President, Business Development & Licensing.
  • Steven Caffé, M.D. was appointed Senior Vice President, Regulatory Affairs.

On December 22, 2014, Sucampo received a notice letter of an ANDA filed by Par for RESCULA® (unoprostone isopropyl) ophthalmic solution 0.15% indicated for the lowering of intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension and in February 2015 Sucampo reached an agreement with Par in which Sucampo would grant Par a license in certain circumstances prior to the date of the last expiring patent. Under such license, Par will split with Sucampo the gross profits of the generic or authorized generic version sold during the term of the agreement, which continues until the last of Sucampo patents relating to RESCULA have expired. In the event Par elects to so launch an authorized generic, Sucampo will supply Par under the terms of a manufacturing and supply agreement at a negotiated supply price.

Fourth Quarter and FY 2014 Financial Review

  • GAAP net income was $9.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to a GAAP net income of $2.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the same period in 2013. GAAP net income was $13.1 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the full year of 2014 compared to a GAAP net income of $7.0 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, in the same period in 2013.
  • Total revenues were $37.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $24.5 million in the same period in 2013, an increase of 54%. Total revenues were $115.5 million for the full year of 2014 compared to $89.6 million in the same period in 2013, an increase of 29%. The increase for both periods was primarily due to higher royalty revenue on AMITIZA net sales in the U.S., the growth of AMITIZA sales in Japan and the previously mentioned $8.0 million recognized in contract and collaboration revenue from Takeda. The increase for full year of 2014 also included the $2.5 million milestone from Abbott and was offset by the 2013 receipt of the $10.0 million milestone payment from Takeda upon the first commercial sale of AMITIZA for OIC.
  • Costs of goods sold were $4.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $2.9 million for the same period of 2013, an increase of 39%. The increase was primarily due to increased volume of AMITIZA product sales in Japan. Costs of goods sold were $16.3 million for the full year of 2014 compared to $12.4 million for the same period of 2013, an increase of 31%. The increase for the full year was primarily due to increased volume of AMITIZA product sales in Japan partially offset by the $3.0 million non-cash write-off of RESCULA inventory in the prior year which did not reoccur.
  • R&D expenses were $5.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $7.0 million for the same period of 2013, a decrease of 16%. R&D expenses were $20.6 million for the full year of 2014 compared to $21.5 million for the same period of 2013, a decrease of 4%. The decrease for both periods was primarily due to the discontinuation of our clinical studies for LSS, which were ongoing in 2013, but finished in the first half of 2014. This was partially offset by increased costs for lubiprostone and cobiprostone development and additional personnel.
  • G&A expenses were $7.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $6.8 million for the same period of 2013, an increase of 13%. G&A expenses were $31.2 million for the full year of 2014 compared to $25.4 million for the same period of 2013, an increase of 23%. The increase for both periods was primarily due to a significant increase in legal fees incurred in prosecuting the Par patent infringement lawsuit, partially offset by a reduction in pharmacovigilance costs that were associated with launching AMITIZA in Japan in 2013.
  • Selling & Marketing expenses were $3.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $5.1 million for the same period of 2013, a decrease of 40%. Selling & Marketing expenses were $14.5 million for the full year of 2014 compared to $21.1 million for the same period of 2013, a decrease of 31%. The decrease for both periods was primarily due to the replacement of our U.S. in-house sales force with a lower-cost contract sales force in 2014. The decrease for the full year of 2014 included a $1.5 million non-cash write-off of RESCULA samples in 2013 that did not reoccur this year, partially offset by increased commercialization costs in 2014 for AMITIZA in Europe.

Earnings Excluding Special Items

There were no special items for the fourth quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP EPS for the fourth quarter of 2013 exclude RESCULA inventory write-off, sample non-cash write-off costs, and restructuring costs. Non-GAAP net income excluding special items for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $2.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP EPS for the full year 2014 exclude RESCULA intangible impairment costs and non-GAAP EPS for the full year 2013 exclude RESCULA inventory, sample non-cash write-off costs, and restructuring costs. Non-GAAP net income excluding special items for the full year 2014 was $17.9 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income excluding special items of $9.4 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the full year of 2013.
