Highlights for Fourth Quarter 2005
On a quarterly sequential basis, distributed products revenue decreased by 5.0% to $155.5 million in the 2005 Quarter from $163.6 million for the 2005 third quarter. Affecting the comparison to the 2005 third quarter, among other things, is our previously announced discontinuation dis·con·tin·u·a·tion

In the 2005 Quarter, gross margin on distributed products was 20.8% compared to 20.3 % for the 2005 third quarter. In the 2005 Quarter, distributed products revenues decreased from $181.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2004 (2004 Quarter), due to overall price declines common to generic products, the discontinuation of the distribution of certain brand products and sales to Internet pharmacies and certain pain clinics, and lower cold and flu vaccine

After the disposition of our brand business in March 2005 through a sales and licensing transaction with First Horizon, Andrx products revenues exclude Altoprev(R) and Fortamet(R). Our participation in the performance of these brand products is now included in licensing, royalties and other revenues. Sales of these products were $18.2 million in the 2004 Quarter.

On a quarterly sequential basis, revenues from Andrx products increased by 3.4% from $71.5 million for the 2005 third quarter, primarily due to increases from our generic version of Paxil and its sales to a new customer. Excluding gross profit from Altoprev and Fortamet, Andrx products generated $9.6 million of gross profit with a gross margin of 12.9% in the 2005 Quarter, compared to $28.0 million of gross profit with a gross margin of 33.1% in the 2004 Quarter. The $18.4 million decrease in gross profit resulted primarily from increased other charges to cost of goods sold, including the $10.0 million impairment charge related to our North Carolina facility and increased charges related to pre-launch inventories, as well as reductions in revenues and a decrease in our profit share from Perrigo's sales of our OTC Claritin Clar·i·tin

In the 2005 Quarter, we recorded charges directly to cost of goods sold of $6.1 million related to pre-launch inventories, including $5.6 million related to our generic version of Biaxin XL in connection with the aging of product that may be short-dated by the date we anticipate our product will likely be sold due to the preliminary injunction referred to above.
In the 2005 Quarter, licensing, royalties and other revenues increased to $15.6 million, compared to $6.8 million in the 2004 Quarter primarily due to revenues from First Horizon related to our former brand products, which commenced in April 2005. On a quarterly sequential basis, licensing, royalties and other revenues decreased by $6.3 million from $21.9 million for the 2005 third quarter mainly due to the inclusion in the 2005 third quarter of $3.9 million of revenue upon the reversal of sales allowances previously recorded related to our agreements for generic versions of Wellbutrin Well·bu·trin

Excluding the brand business segment, SG&A expenses were $34.0 million for the 2004 Quarter. On a comparable quarterly sequential basis, SG&A expenses decreased by $11.7 million from $44.7 million for the 2005 third quarter, primarily due to costs of $9.3 million in the 2005 third quarter associated with the separation agreement with our former Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, $7.0 million of which was a non-cash charge Non-Cash Charge

On a quarterly sequential basis, R&D decreased from $10.3 million for the 2005 third quarter. We anticipate that R&D for 2006 will total approximately $50 million, which will include our internal R&D efforts focusing primarily on the development of primarily controlled-release products, supporting our contract services business and external R&D costs in connection with agreements we reach with third parties relating to relating to relate prep → concernant

We also anticipate that we will begin to make income tax payments in 2006.
As of December 31, 2005, we had $405 million in cash, cash equivalents and total investments available for sale, and $491 million of working capital. Deferred revenues were $99 million, primarily related to cash received from our transactions with Takeda and First Horizon.
Capital expenditures were $7.4 million in the 2005 Quarter compared to $15.1 million for the 2004 Quarter, and $8.5 million for the 2005 third quarter.
