NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Cumberland Pharmaceuticals
Inc. (NASDAQ: CPIX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on hospital
acute care and gastroenterology, today announced fourth quarter and annual
2012 financial results.

Net Revenue: For the three months ended December 31, 2012, net revenue was
$13.7 million, up from $13.0 million in the prior year period.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, net revenues were $48.9 million,
compared with $51.1 million for 2011.

Operating Expenses: Total operating expenses for the three months ended
December 31, 2012 were $10.4 million compared to $11.3 million the prior year

million of non-recurring expenses associated with the realignment of our sales
organization.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, total operating expenses were
approximately $40.0 million compared with $41.3 million for 2011.

Net Income: Net income attributable to common shareholders for the three
months ended December 31, 2012, was $1.8 million, or $0.09 per diluted share,
compared to $0.9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the same period in
2011. This increase resulted from quarter- over-quarter sales growth along
with reduced expenses.

Net income attributable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31,
2012 increased to $5.8 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to $5.7

from $4.9 million at the end of 2011. Shareholders' equity increased to $85.7
million at the end of 2012 from $82.9 million for the prior period.

"We are pleased with the progress we made in 2012 as highlighted by our
financial results, as well as several product milestones, including the
expansion of our international presence, the completion of four Caldolor
studies, and the allowance of two new Acetadote patents," said A.J. Kazimi,
Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. "As we move into 2013,
we will continue to maximize our near term opportunities while laying the
foundation for the long term expansion, diversification and success of our
business."

Product Highlights

Acetadote^®

In November 2012, Cumberland received a Notice of Allowance from the United
States Patent and Trademark Office for a second patent relating to the new
formulation of Acetadote. The new patent will include claims regarding the use
of the 200 mg/ml Acetadote formulation to treat patients with acetaminophen
overdose and will expire in August 2025.

Cumberland also entered into a Settlement Agreement with Paddock Laboratories,
LLC and Perrigo Company in November to resolve the challenges and pending
litigation between the Company and each of Paddock and Perrigo involving the
Acetadote patent. Under the Settlement Agreement, Paddock and Perrigo admit
that the Acetadote patent is valid and enforceable and that any Paddock or
Perrigo generic Acetadote product (with or without EDTA) would infringe upon
the Acetadote patent. In addition, Paddock and Perrigo will not challenge the
validity, enforceability, ownership or patentability of the Acetadote patent
through its expiration currently scheduled for May 2026.

The Company has also entered into a License and Supply Agreement with Paddock
and Perrigo. Under the terms of the License and Supply Agreement, if a third
party receives final approval from the FDA for an ANDA to sell a generic
Acetadote product and such third party has made such generic version available
for purchase in commercial quantities in the United States, the Company will
supply Perrigo with an authorized generic version of the Company's Acetadote
product.

In January 2013, Perrigo announced initial distribution of Cumberland's
authorized generic acetylcysteine injection product.

Caldolor^®

Cumberland is pleased to  announce new top-line results from a pilot clinical
study evaluating the safety and analgesic efficacy of Caldolor (ibuprofen)
Injection compared to ketorolac injection in treating pain following knee
arthroscopy procedures in adult patients.

Fifty-one patients were enrolled at The Ohio State Medical Center. Compared to
patients receiving ketorolac, patients receiving intravenous ibuprofen
experienced less postoperative pain prior to discharge. Patients receiving
Caldolor also needed fewer narcotics and were less likely to require narcotics
prior to discharge. This data supports the benefits of using Caldolor in a
pre-emptive model of multimodal analgesia.

These positive results follow the February release of two recent studies
affirming the safety and efficacy of Caldolor in treating pain and fever in
adult patients when administered over a shortened infusion time. Top-line
results from these two registry studies involved 450 patients who received
Caldolor at 34 leading medical centers throughout the United States.

The Company continued to expand the international market for Caldolor through
strategic partnerships. In December 2012, the application for regulatory
approval of Caldolor for fever in Australia by Cumberland's partner Phebra Pty
Ltd., was approved.

In January 2013, Cumberland entered into agreements with India's Sandor
Medicaids Pvt. Ltd. and Indonesia's PT. SOHO Industri Pharmasi (a SOHO Group
company) for the commercialization of Caldolor in those countries.

Company Update

In November 2012, Cumberland completed a realignment of its national sales
organization to more efficiently cover key targets in support of all three
marketed products, Caldolor, Acetadote and Kristalose, in the United States.

information, please visit the Company's website at www.cumberlandpharma.com. 

About Acetadote

Acetadote, administered intravenously within 8 to 10 hours after ingestion of
a potentially hepatotoxic quantity of acetaminophen, is indicated to prevent
or lessen hepatic injury. Used in the emergency department, Acetadote is
approved in the United States to treat overdose of acetaminophen, a common
ingredient in many over-the-counter medications. Acetadote is contraindicated
in patients with hypersensitivity or previous anaphylactoid reactions to
acetylcysteine or any components of the preparation. Serious anaphylactoid
reactions, including death in a patient with asthma, have been reported in
patients administered acetylcysteine intravenously. Acetadote should be used
with caution in patients with asthma or where there is a history of
bronchospasm. The total volume administered should be adjusted for patients
weighing less than 40 kg and for those requiring fluid restriction. To avoid
fluid overload, the volume of diluent should be reduced as needed. If volume
is not adjusted, fluid overload can occur, potentially resulting in
hyponatremia, seizure and death. For full prescribing information, visit
www.acetadote.com.

About Caldolor

Caldolor is indicated for the management of mild to moderate pain and
management of moderate to severe pain as an adjunct to opioid analgesics, as
well as the reduction of fever in adults. It was the first FDA-approved
intravenous therapy for fever. Caldolor is contraindicated in patients with
known hypersensitivity to ibuprofen or other NSAIDs, patients with asthma,
urticarial, or allergic type reactions after taking aspirin or other NSAIDs.
Caldolor is contraindicated for use during the peri-operative period in the
setting of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Caldolor should be
used with caution in patients with prior history of ulcer disease or GI
bleeding, in patients with fluid retention or heart failure, in the elderly,
those with renal impairment, heart failure, liver impairment, and those taking
diuretics or ACE inhibitors. Blood pressure should be monitored during
treatment with Caldolor. For full prescribing information, including boxed
warning, visit www.caldolor.com.

About Kristalose

Kristalose is indicated for the treatment of acute and chronic constipation.
It is a unique, proprietary, crystalline form of lactulose, with no
restrictions on length of therapy or patient age. Initial dosing may produce
flatulence and intestinal cramps, which are usually transient. Excessive
dosage can lead to diarrhea with potential complications such as loss of
fluids, hypokalemia and hypernatremia. Nausea and vomiting have been reported.
Use with caution in diabetics. Kristalose is contraindicated in patients who
require a low-galactose diet. Elderly, debilitated patients who receive
lactulose for more than six months should have serum electrolytes (potassium,
chloride, carbon dioxide) measured periodically. For full prescribing
information, visit www.kristalose.com.

** On November 29, 2012, Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the "Company")
implemented a realignment of its national sales organization to more
efficiently cover key targets in support of its three marketed products,
Caldolor, Acetadote and Kristalose . As a result of this realignment the
Company's sales personnel totaling 64 individuals, consolidated into 8
nationwide districts. The Company does not expect to have further changes to
its sales personnel as a result of the realignment. The costs associated with
the sales force realignment are one-time expenses recorded during the fourth
quarter ending December 31, 2012. As management believes these costs are
nonrecurring and important to understanding the Company's business operations,
it has presented these separately.

The Company provided the above adjusted financial performance measures, which
are considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under applicable Securities and
Exchange Commission rules and regulations. These non-GAAP financial measures
should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial
information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles. The definition of these non-GAAP measures may differ from
similarly titled measures used by others.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial performance measures are
important as they eliminate nonrecurring sales realignment costs. The Company
used these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management's internal
comparisons of the Company's operating results, as well as to reconcile to
guidance provided to investors. In addition, the use of non-GAAP financial
measures provides greater transparency to investors of supplemental
information used by management in its financial and operational
decision-making, including the evaluation of the Company's operating
performance. The Company defines these non-GAAP financial measures as
follows:

  oAdjusted net income attributable to common shareholders: net income
    attributable to common shareholders adjusted for the one-time expenses
    associated with the sales force realignment during the fourth quarter
    ending December 31, 2012, net of related income tax effect.
  oAdjusted basic earnings per share: adjusted net income attributable to
    common shareholders divided by basic weighted-average shares outstanding.
  oAdjusted diluted earnings per share: adjusted net income attributable to
    common shareholders divided by diluted weighted-average shares
    outstanding.
