"2013 was a transformational year for Horizon with the acceleration of DUEXIS revenue, the launch of RAYOS and the acquisition of VIMOVO," said Timothy P. Walbert, chairman, president and chief executive officer, Horizon Pharma. "With our strong base of U.S. revenues driven by DUEXIS, RAYOS and VIMOVO, we expect to attain non-GAAP profitability this year and believe our existing cash on hand will be sufficient to achieve positive operating cash flow, positioning us to both continue execution of our strategy and potentially further accelerate growth through acquisition or in-licensing of products or companies where we can execute a targeted commercial approach."

Mr. Walbert continued, "We are very pleased with the performance of VIMOVO since the acquisition, with new and total prescriptions, according to IMS Health, increasing 28% and 10%, respectively, in the four week period ending February 28th versus the prior four weeks. This performance has been driven by significant growth in prescriptions among commercial payers, offsetting the loss of Medicare, Medicaid and cash prescriptions which resulted from our price increase in January of this year."

Revision of Prior Financial Statement Presentation and Confirmation of 2014 Guidance

Revision of Prior Financial Statement Presentation

Since the launch of DUEXIS in late 2011, the Company has accounted for certain services fees paid to its wholesale distributors as a component of cost of goods sold, as was described in the notes to the Company's previously filed financial statements. On January 29, 2014, the Company announced preliminary (unaudited) fourth quarter and full year 2013 revenues, which were prepared in a manner consistent with the Company's historical and audited classification of these services fees as a component of cost of goods sold. Subsequently, in connection with the audit of its 2013 financial results, the Company determined that these services fees should be recorded as a reduction in revenue rather than as an increase in cost of goods sold. The revision to the classification of these fees has the effect of reducing net revenue and cost of goods sold by the same dollar amount, with gross profit dollars unchanged, resulting in a higher gross profit margin on the reduced net sales amounts. The revision has no impact on the Company's reported gross profit, net income, earnings per share, or cash flows. After evaluating the quantitative and qualitative effect of the revision, the Company, in discussion with its independent registered public accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, determined that the revision would not require a restatement of its financial statements for any prior periods. The Company has revised all affected, current and prior income statements, including those presented in this earnings release, to reflect the revision.

Confirmation of 2014 Guidance

After evaluating the likely future effect of classifying the wholesaler services fees as a reduction in revenue and the performance of VIMOVO in early 2014, the Company has determined that this reclassification will not cause it to change the revenue guidance provided on November 19, 2013, and reaffirms that it expects full-year 2014 net revenue of $190 to $205 million. The Company expects gross-to-net revenue deductions in the mid-forty percent range across its business in 2014 and gross profit margins in the low ninety percent range, excluding intangible amortization. The Company also reaffirms its expectation of achieving profitability in 2014 on a non-GAAP basis, based on the Company's GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation practice, as outlined below, and notes that the reclassification will not impact the Company's liquidity position.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Financial Results

For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013, gross and net sales were $43.1 million and $30.1 million, respectively, compared to $8.2 million and $6.4 million, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2012. DUEXIS gross and net sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $34.6 million and $23.1 million, respectively, after deducting sales discounts and allowances of $11.5 million, including co-pay assistance costs of $6.5 million, compared to gross and net sales of $7.1 million and $5.7 million, respectively, during the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in DUEXIS sales during the current quarter compared to the same period in the prior year resulted primarily from a combination of product price increases implemented during 2013 and increased prescription count driven by the Company's expanded sales force.

VIMOVO gross and net sales during the fourth quarter of 2013 were $1.0 million each and represented net profits paid to the Company by AstraZeneca in the fourth quarter of 2013 under a transition services agreement entered into in connection with the acquisition of certain assets and commercial rights to VIMOVO in the U.S. in November 2013.

RAYOS gross and net sales were $4.4 million and $3.2 million, respectively, during the fourth quarter of 2013, after deducting sales discounts and allowances of $1.2 million, including co-pay costs of $0.6 million, compared to gross and net sales of $0.8 million and $0.3 million, respectively, during the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in RAYOS sales was primarily attributable to the inclusion of a full quarter of sales during the current year compared to the prior year in which RAYOS was launched in December 2012.

LODOTRA gross and net sales during the fourth quarter of 2013 were $3.1 million and $2.8 million, respectively, after deducting trade allowances of $0.3 million, compared to gross and net sales of $0.3 million during the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in LODOTRA sales during the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in the prior year was the result of higher product shipments to the Company's European distribution partner, Mundipharma. LODOTRA sales to Mundipharma occur at the time the Company ships product to Mundipharma based on its estimated requirements. Accordingly, LODOTRA sales are not linear nor tied to Mundipharma sales to the market and can therefore fluctuate from quarter to quarter.

During the fourth quarter of 2013, sales discounts and allowances were $13.1 million compared to $1.8 million during the fourth quarter of 2012. As a percentage of gross product sales, sales discounts and allowances increased to 31% during the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to 22% during the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in sales discounts and allowances was attributable to the increase in product sales during the current quarter, which resulted in higher co-pay costs, customer discounts and rebates, including distribution service fees and prompt pay allowances. Co-pay assistance costs increased $6.2 million during the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in the prior year as a result of a larger number of prescriptions being filled by patients and product price increases implemented during the course of 2013, which resulted in the Company increasing the amount of co-pay assistance it would provide to a patient.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $102.9 million, or $1.56 per share based on 65,856,170 weighted average shares outstanding, compared to a net loss of $24.3 million, or $0.40 per share based on 61,574,187 weighted average shares outstanding, during the fourth quarter of 2012. Significant factors related to the increased net loss in the fourth quarter of 2013 were a $69.3 million non-cash charge related to the increase in the fair value of the embedded derivatives in the convertible senior notes, due to an increase in the market value of the Company's common stock during the period from issuance to December 31, 2013, a $26.4 million charge related to extinguishment and refinancing of the Company's prior senior loan facility, and $1.2 million in VIMOVO transaction costs.

Non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $14.6 million, or $0.22 per share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $20.9 million, or $0.34 per share, during the fourth quarter of 2012. Excluding costs associated with early extinguishment of the Company's senior loan facility in the fourth quarter of 2013 in connection with the VIMOVO acquisition and convertible senior note transaction, net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $0.04 per share on a non-GAAP, adjusted basis. Refer to the section of this press release below titled, "Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $80.5 million at December 31, 2013. Cowen and Company, LLC, the Company's agent, sold 2,448,575 shares of the Company's common stock in 2013 under the Company's at-the-market (ATM) facility for gross proceeds of $6.2 million and net proceeds of $6.0 million after deducting $0.2 million in commissions and other issuance costs. Cowen has not sold shares under the ATM since July 2013.

Cost of goods sold increased $1.8 million, to $5.3 million during the fourth quarter of 2013, from $3.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2012, with the increase primarily attributable to the inclusion of $1.4 million in intangible amortization expense associated with the VIMOVO asset acquisition. As a result of the asset purchase agreement with AstraZeneca, the Company capitalized $67.7 million in intangible assets related to VIMOVO intellectual property rights. This intangible asset will be amortized using a straight-line method over its estimated useful life currently expected to extend from the date of acquisition of the U.S. rights to VIMOVO through 2018. For the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, intangible amortization expense accounted for 60% and 47%, respectively, of total cost of goods sold.

Research and development expenses during the fourth quarter of 2013 were $2.9 million, a decrease of $1.8 million compared to research and development expenses of $4.7 million during the fourth quarter of 2012. The decrease in research and development expenses during the current year was primarily associated with the classification of $1.2 million in medical affairs expenses to sales and marketing expenses, a $0.3 million reduction in consulting fees and a $0.2 million decrease in regulatory and clinical trial expenses. During the first quarter of 2013, in connection with the full commercial launch of RAYOS, the Company began to classify its medical affairs expenses, which now consist of expenses related to scientific publications, health outcomes, biostatistics, medical education and information, and medical communications, as sales and marketing expenses. Prior to the full commercial launch of RAYOS in late January 2013, medical affairs expenses were classified as part of research and development expenses.

Sales and marketing expenses during the fourth quarter of 2013 were $20.1 million, an increase of $5.0 million compared to $15.1 million during the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in sales and marketing expenses was primarily attributable to an increase of $1.9 million in salaries and benefits expenses due to the increase in staffing of the Company's field sales force, the inclusion of $1.2 million of selling related medical affairs expenses, a $1.0 million increase in market development, marketing and promotions expenses and $0.9 million in higher consulting and outside service costs.

General and administrative expenses during the fourth quarter of 2013 were $7.6 million, an increase of $2.6 million, compared to $5.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to $1.2 million in legal fees incurred in connection with the VIMOVO asset acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2013, $1.1 million in additional salaries and related benefits expense associated with incremental administrative staff compared to the prior year period and a $0.6 million increase in investment advisory expenses associated with the Company's issuance of convertible notes during the current quarter.

Interest expense, net was $28.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of $25.1 million compared to interest expense, net of $3.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in interest expense was primarily attributable to a $26.4 million charge related to the extinguishment of its senior loan facility.

During the three months ended December 31, 2013, the Company recorded a $69.3 million non-cash charge related to the increase in the fair value of the embedded derivatives in the convertible senior notes issued in November 2013, principally due to an increase in the market value of the Company's common stock during the period from issuance to December 31, 2013.

During the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company reported foreign exchange gains of $0.5 million and $0.8 million, respectively. The foreign exchange gain in each period was primarily attributable to an increase in the value of the Euro against the U.S. dollar which resulted in a favorable currency impact for the Company's Swiss subsidiary, Horizon Pharma AG.

Full Year 2013 Financial Results
During the year ended December 31, 2013, gross and net sales were $103.0 million and $74.0 million, respectively, compared to $23.0 million and $18.8 million, respectively, during the year ended December 31, 2012. DUEXIS gross and net sales during the year ended December 31, 2013 were $85.5 million and $59.0 million, respectively, after deducting sales discounts and allowances of $26.5 million, including co-pay assistance costs of $12.8 million, compared to gross and net sales of $13.2 million and $10.3 million, respectively, during the year ended December 31, 2012. The increase in DUEXIS sales during the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to the prior year was primarily the result of product price increases implemented during the course of 2013 and increased volume driven by the Company's expansion of its sales force.

VIMOVO gross and net sales during the year ended December 31, 2013 were $1.0 million each and represented net profits paid to the Company by AstraZeneca in the fourth quarter of 2013 under a transition services agreement entered into in connection with the acquisition of certain assets and commercial rights to VIMOVO in the U.S. in November 2013.

RAYOS gross and net sales were $7.8 million and $5.8 million, respectively, during the year ended December 31, 2013 after deducting sales discounts and allowances of $2.0 million, including co-pay costs of $0.8 million, compared to gross and net sales of $0.8 million and $0.3 million, respectively, during the year ended December 31, 2012. The increase in RAYOS sales during the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to the prior year was primarily attributable to the inclusion of a full year of sales during the year ended December 31, 2013 following the RAYOS launch in December 2012.

LODOTRA gross and net sales during the year ended December 31, 2013 were $8.7 million and $8.2 million, respectively, after deducting trade allowances of $0.5 million, compared to gross and net sales of $9.0 million and $8.2 million, respectively, during the year ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in LODOTRA sales during the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to the prior year was the result of lower product shipments to the Company's European distribution partner, Mundipharma, partially offset by an increase in the recognition of deferred revenues related to product previously shipped and invoiced to Mundipharma at contract minimum prices and where the contractual price adjustment period has passed. LODOTRA sales to Mundipharma occur at the time the Company ships product to Mundipharma based on its estimated requirements. Accordingly, LODOTRA sales are not linear or tied to Mundipharma sales to the market and can therefore fluctuate from year to year.

During the year ended December 31, 2013, sales discounts and allowances were $29.0 million compared to $4.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2012. As a percentage of gross product sales, sales discounts and allowances increased to 28% during the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to 18% during the year ended December 31, 2012. The increase in sales discounts and allowances was attributable to a significant increase in product sales during the year ended December 31, 2013, which resulted in a corresponding increase in customer discounts and rebates, including distribution service fees, and prompt pay allowances. Co-pay assistance costs increased $12.0 million during the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to the same period in the prior year as a result of a larger number of prescriptions being filled by patients and product price increases implemented during the course of 2013, which resulted in the Company increasing the amount of co-pay assistance it would provide to a patient.

Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013, was $149.0 million, or $2.34 per share based on 63,657,924 weighted average shares outstanding, compared to a net loss of $87.8 million, or $2.26 per share based on 38,871,422 weighted average shares outstanding, during the year ended December 31, 2012. Significant factors related to the increased net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 were a $69.3 million non-cash charge related to the increase in the fair value of the embedded derivatives in the convertible senior notes, principally due to an increase in the market value of the Company's common stock during the period from issuance to December 31, 2013, a $26.4 million charge related to extinguishment of the existing senior loan facility, and $1.2 million in VIMOVO related acquisition costs.

Non-GAAP net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $50.4 million, or $0.79 per share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $76.0 million, or $1.96 per share, during the year ended December 31, 2012. Excluding costs associated with early extinguishment of the Company's senior loan facility in the fourth quarter of 2013 in connection with the VIMOVO acquisition and convertible senior note transaction, net loss for 2013 was $0.59 on a non-GAAP, adjusted basis. Refer to the section of this press release below titled, "Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Cost of goods sold increased $2.7 million, to $14.6 million during the year ended December 31, 2013, from $11.9 million during the year ended December 31, 2012. The increase in cost of goods sold was primarily attributable to a $3.4 million increase in intangible amortization expense. The increase in amortization expense was related to the FDA approval of RAYOS in July 2012, which resulted in the reclassification and subsequent amortization of an indefinite-lived intangible asset to a finite-lived intangible asset, which resulted in additional intangible amortization expense of $2.0 million during the year ended December 31, 2013 as a result of a full year of amortization as compared to 2012. Additionally, as a result of the asset purchase agreement with AstraZeneca, the Company capitalized $67.7 million in intangible assets related to the VIMOVO intellectual property rights. This intangible asset will be amortized using a straight-line method over its estimated useful life extending from date of acquisition of VIMOVO through 2018. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company recorded $1.4 million in intangible amortization expense related to the asset purchase agreement with AstraZeneca. For the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, intangible amortization expense accounted for 56% and 40%, respectively, of total cost of goods sold.

Research and development expenses during the year ended December 31, 2013 were $10.1 million, a decrease of $6.7 million compared to research and development expenses of $16.8 million during the year ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in research and development expenses during the year ended December 31, 2013 was primarily associated with the classification of $5.0 million in medical affairs expenses to sales and marketing expenses, a $0.9 million reduction in consulting fees and a $0.8 million decrease in regulatory and clinical trial expenses. During the first quarter of 2013, in connection with the full commercial launch of RAYOS, the Company began to classify its medical affairs expenses, which now consist of expenses related to scientific publications, health outcomes, biostatistics, medical education and information, and medical communications, as sales and marketing expenses. Prior to the full commercial launch of RAYOS in late January 2013, medical affairs expenses were classified as part of research and development expenses.

Sales and marketing expenses during the year ended December 31, 2013 were $68.6 million, an increase of $19.0 million compared to sales and marketing expenses of $49.6 million during the year ended December 31, 2012. The increase in sales and marketing expenses was primarily attributable to an increase of $13.6 million in salaries and benefits expenses due to the increase in staffing of the Company's field sales force and the inclusion of $5.0 million of medical affairs expenses in sales and marketing expenses.

General and administrative expenses during the year ended December 31, 2013 were $23.6 million, an increase of $4.2 million compared to general and administrative expenses of $19.4 million during the year ended December 31, 2012. The increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to $1.9 million in additional salaries and related benefits expense associated with incremental finance and administrative staff compared to the prior year, $1.8 million in higher legal expenses, which consisted of a $1.1 million increase in legal fees incurred in connection with the VIMOVO asset acquisition and a $0.7 million increase in legal fees associated with intellectual property related matters. Additionally, facilities expense increased $0.7 million in the year ended December 310, 2013 as a result of additional information technology infrastructure expenses related to the expansion of the Company's field sales force.

Interest expense, net was $39.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2013, an increase of $24.7 million compared to interest expense, net of $14.5 million during the year ended December 31, 2012. The increase in interest expense, net was primarily attributable to higher debt extinguishment costs and interest expense related to the amortization of deferred financing and debt discount expenses. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company recorded a $26.4 million charge related to the extinguishment of its senior loan facility with a group of institutional investors in November 2013 compared to a charge related to debt extinguishment of a prior debt facility of $2.5 million during the year ended December 31, 2012.

During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company recorded a $69.3 million non-cash charge related to the increase in the fair value of the embedded derivatives in the convertible senior notes issued in November 2013, principally due to an increase in the market value of the Company's common stock during the period from issuance to December 31, 2013.

During the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company reported a foreign exchange gain of $1.2 million and $0.5 million, respectively. The foreign exchange gain in each period was primarily attributable to an increase in the value of the Euro against the U.S. dollar compared to the applicable prior year, which resulted in a favorable currency impact for the Company's Swiss subsidiary, Horizon Pharma AG.

Income tax benefit was $1.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of $4.1 million compared to an income tax benefit of $5.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2012. On July 26, 2012, the FDA approved RAYOS, which resulted in the reclassification of $35.5 million, from an indefinite-lived intangible asset to a finite-lived intangible asset. The reclassification required the Company to amortize the asset over its estimated useful life, which resulted in a corresponding reduction to net deferred tax liabilities and the recognition of a one-time net income tax benefit of $4.3 million that was recorded during the third quarter of 2012.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Horizon provides non-GAAP net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share financial measures that include adjustments to GAAP figures. These adjustments to GAAP exclude non-cash items such as stock compensation and depreciation and amortization, non-cash interest expense, and other non-cash charges. Certain one-time or substantive events may also be included in the non-GAAP adjustments periodically when their magnitude is significant within the periods incurred. Horizon believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP figures, can enhance an overall understanding of Horizon's financial performance. The non-GAAP financial measures are included with the intent of providing investors with a more complete understanding of operational results and trends. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among the indicators Horizon's management uses for planning and forecasting purposes and measuring the Company's performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Please refer to the financial statements portion of this press release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures.
