- Disciplined operating efficiency a track record and plan for continued management of operating expenses. Endo will manage the loss of Lidoderm® exclusivity, with multi-year expense reductions while planning for retaining 30% of Lidoderm® sales after entry of the first generic competitor.
- Diversified pipeline consisting of development assets in branded and generic drugs, as well as medical devices.
- Durable cash flow generation over $3 billion in adjusted EBITDA forecasted on a cumulative basis from 2013 to 2015 will provide Endo with financial flexibility to support organic and strategic growth, deleveraging and share repurchases.
2012 Financial Outlook Update
Endo reiterates its full-year financial guidance for total revenue between $3.05 billion and $3.175 billion, adjusted diluted earnings per share to be between $5.00 and $5.20 and cash flow from operations between $700 million and $800 million.
Endo also announced today that it has bought back $100 million of its common stock during the third quarter. Endo announced on Aug. 7, 2012, that the Board of Directors had authorized the company to repurchase up to $450 million of its common stock through March 2015.
The company will provide guidance with respect to third and fourth quarter 2012 earnings expectations, and greater clarity with respect to the timing of implementation for its recently introduced expense restructuring initiatives as well as recent sales trends for key products. Endo indicated that it expects third quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share to be approximately $1.25.
2013 Financial Guidance
The Company expects its financial results in 2013 to reflect the performance of a quality group of commercial assets and efficient operations, partially offset by the entry of a generic competitor to Lidoderm® in late 2013.

For the full year ended Dec. 31, 2013, Endo estimates:
- Total revenue between $3.0 billion and $3.2 billion
- Reported (GAAP) diluted earnings per share between $3.17 and $3.37
- Adjusted diluted earnings per share between $5.20 and $5.40
Endo's 2013 guidance is based on certain current assumptions including:
- Adjusted gross margin between 65 percent and 66 percent
- Reduction in adjusted operating expenses in the mid-single digit range versus 2012
- Adjusted effective tax rate of between 30 percent and 31 percent
- Continued growth in Qualitest, OPANA® ER, Voltaren® Gel and AMS
