NEWARK, Calif., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ Depomed, Inc. (Nasdaq: DEPO) today reported financial results and highlighted operational achievements for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Depomed is now one of the top U.S. companies in pain and neurology. In the third quarter, the company achieved historic highs in product sales, driven by significant growth in both prescriptions and market share, said Jim Schoeneck, President and CEO of Depomed. Our new flagship franchise NUCYNTA, which we began promoting in June, led the way with revenue growing 15% over the prior quarter. In October, we hit all-time weekly prescription highs for NUCYNTA ER, Gralise and Cambia, reflecting the outstanding work of our sales force across the entire product line. Depomed increased cash by $107 million in the six months since the close of the NUCYNTA transaction, providing significant financial flexibility to pay down debt and to pursue additional acquisitions, as we continue to create substantial value for shareholders. Based on our financial performance, we are raising 2015 product sales guidance to $336 to $348 million, which is more than triple our 2014 product sales. In addition, we are raising our 2015 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to $108 to $116 million, up from our prior guidance of $95 to 110 million and our non-GAAP adjusted earnings to $58 to $66 million, up from our prior guidance of $40 to $50 million. And our 2015 numbers include just three quarters of NUCYNTA revenue. We believe that we are only at the very beginning of a story with substantial revenue and earnings growth ahead for years to come.
