- Total revenues increase 14 percent versus prior year

CHADDS FORD, Pa., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Endo Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: ENDP) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2009.

Total revenues during the third quarter of 2009 increased 14 percent to $361 million compared with $317 million in the third quarter of 2008.  Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2009 was $49 million, compared with $66 million in the comparable 2008 period.  As detailed in the supplemental financial information below, adjusted net income for the three months ended September 30, 2009 was $74 million, compared with $79 million in the same period in 2008.  Reported diluted earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2009 were $0.42 compared with $0.55 in the third quarter of 2008.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2009 were $0.63, compared with $0.66 in the same period in 2008.

Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 were $1.07 billion, compared with $913 million in the comparable 2008 period.  Reported diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 were $1.01 compared with $1.45 in the comparable period of 2008.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 were $2.04, compared with $1.74 in the same period in 2008.  

"This is an exciting time for Endo Pharmaceuticals," said Dave Holveck, president and CEO of Endo.  "Our core business continues to exceed our expectations; we have successfully launched Valstar(TM) for bladder cancer this quarter, and we are planning for the launch of our long-acting injectable testosterone product, which will now be called Aveed(TM).  We believe our third quarter performance, in conjunction with a solid outlook for the remainder of the year, warrants an increase in our revenue and earnings guidance.  And we continue to actively pursue business development opportunities that will further diversify our top line in the years ahead."  

2009 Financial Guidance

The company is raising guidance for 2009 annual total revenues and adjusted diluted earnings per share.  The company now estimates total revenues to be between $1.440 billion and $1.465 billion.  The company also now estimates reported (GAAP) diluted earnings per share to be between $1.41 and $1.47, and this EPS increase is primarily due to changes in the fair value of contingent consideration associated with the Indevus transaction partially offset by the addition of milestone payments associated with the company's recent deal with ProStrakan to in-license FORTESTA(TM).  Adjusted diluted earnings per share are now estimated to be between $2.67 and $2.73.  The company's reported (GAAP) EPS guidance does not include any estimates for potential future changes in the fair value of contingent consideration or for potential new business development transactions.  These items could have a significant impact on the actual reported diluted earnings per share in the future.  A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP calculations is attached to this press release.

Third Quarter Highlights

On September 3, VALSTAR™ became commercially available for the treatment of a distinct form of bladder cancer.  VALSTAR represents a new treatment option for patients who may otherwise have exhausted all other FDA-approved treatment alternatives.

On September 24, Endo announced the final results of a cash tender offer by one of its wholly owned subsidiaries, for any and all outstanding Ledgemont PhaRMA(SM) Secured 16% Notes.  This offer resulted in Endo's acquiring $48 million of the $105 million aggregate principal amount that was outstanding and reflects the company's ongoing efforts to manage its capital structure.
