Second Quarter Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported net revenues of $49.0 million, a decrease of 22% from $62.5 million for the same prior year period.

During the quarter, net revenues of enoxaparin were $27.2 million, a decrease of 34% compared to $41.3 million for the same prior year period due to a decrease in the number of units sold and a decrease in the average selling price.

Other product revenues were $21.8 million for the quarter, an increase of 3% compared to $21.2 million for the same prior year period. This increase is due to increased unit sales of naloxone, which were partially offset by lower unit sales of other injectable products.

Cost of revenues were $34.0 million for the quarter, a decrease of 3% compared to $35.0 million for the same period in the prior year, due to a decrease in sales unit volume. Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues decreased to 31% for the quarter compared to 44% for the prior year period. The decrease is primarily related to a decrease in average net sales price of enoxaparin during 2014.

Selling, distribution and marketing expenses increased to $1.4 million from $1.2 million, compared to the same period in the prior year. General and administrative expenses increased to $8.6 million from $6.5 million, compared to the same period in the prior year, as a result of an increase in compensation expenses including an increase in stock-based compensation.

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, research and development expenses decreased by 23% to $6.0 million from $7.8 million, compared to the same period in the prior year, primarily related to a decrease in pre-launch inventory expense.

The Company reported adjusted non-GAAP quarterly net income of $0.8 million, or $0.02 per fully diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to adjusted non-GAAP net income of $8.9 million, or $0.23 per fully diluted share, for the same period in the prior year.

Dr. Jack Zhang, CEO, commented: "We are very pleased to issue our first earnings report as a public company. The future for Amphastar is extremely exciting. Executing the supply agreement with MannKind last week represents another important step towards accomplishing our long-term goals."

Liquidity

Our cash and cash equivalents and short term investments at June 30, 2014 were $65.6 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company is disclosing non-GAAP financial measures when providing financial results. The Company believes that an evaluation of its ongoing operations (and comparisons of its current operations with historical and future operations) would be difficult if the disclosure of its financial results were limited to financial measures prepared only in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. or "GAAP". In addition to disclosing its financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, the Company is disclosing certain non-GAAP results that exclude amortization expense, share-based compensation and impairment charges in order to supplement investors' and other readers' understanding and assessment of the Company's financial performance, because the Company's management uses these measures internally for forecasting, budgeting, and measuring its operating performance. Whenever the Company uses such a non-GAAP measure, it will provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors and other readers are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to their most closely applicable GAAP measure set forth below and should consider non-GAAP measures only as a supplement to, not as a substitute for or as a superior measure to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
