Targeted Medical Pharma Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Los Angeles, CA, August 14, 2014 – Targeted Medical Pharma, Inc. (OTCQB: TRGM), today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2014.  The Company posted increased revenues, gross profit and an increase in net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and stock based compensation (Adjusted EBITDA*) on a quarter-over-quarter basis.

Financial Overview

Quarter-over-Quarter Comparison:

Financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2014 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2013

  • Total revenue of $2.2 million, a 16% improvement from $1.9 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013.
  • Total gross profit of $1.7 million, a 45% improvement from $1.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $0.04 million, a 103% improvement from -$1.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2014, was $0.42 million compared to a net loss of $7.84 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. During the three months ended June 30, 2013, the Company decided to fully reserve its net deferred income tax assets resulting in income tax expense of $5.9 million. Exclusive of income tax expense, loss before income taxes for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, was $0.36 million and $1.94 million, respectively. This significant improvement reflects management’s commitment to continued operational cost containment and execution of a multi-channel sales and marketing strategy. We believe that operational improvements will continue to drive overall profitability.

During the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company’s net loss consisted of a significant amount of non-cash charges.  Due to the impact of these non-cash charges on the Company’s reported net loss, the Company places greater emphasis in Adjusted EBITDA.

A reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is reflected in the following table:

*Adjusted EBITDA refers to a financial measure that is more fully defined as net loss before net interest and other income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and stock based compensation.  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which management believes reflects the Company’s ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparisons and analysis of trends in the Company’s business, as they exclude certain income or other expenses that are not reflective of ongoing operating results.  Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used to analyze companies on the basis of leverage and liquidity.  However, Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure determined under GAAP in the United States of America and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.  Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as a substitute for net loss or as a better measure of liquidity than cash flow from operating activities, which are determined in accordance with GAAP.  Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure for analyzing operating results, and uses this non-GAAP financial measure to review past results and forecast future results.
