King Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: KG)

-- REMOXY@ ON TRACK FOR FOURTH QUARTER 2010 RESUBMISSION -- EMBEDA@ PRESCRIPTIONS CONTINUE TO GROW -- FLECTOR@ PATCH PRESCRIPTIONS REBOUND IN JUNE, HIGHEST MONTHLY TOTAL SINCE DECEMBER -- CASH FLOW FROM OPERATIONS $51 MILLION, FULL YEAR CASH FLOW FORECAST OF $300 MILLION

King Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: KG) announced today that total revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010 equaled $371 million compared to $445 million in the second quarter of 2009. The Company reported net income of $18.0 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.07 during the second quarter of 2010, compared to a net income of $37.9 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.15 in the same period of the prior year. Excluding certain special items and recurring non-GAAP adjustments, adjusted net earnings equaled $43.1 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share equaled $0.17 during the second quarter ended June 30, 2010, compared to adjusted net earnings of $79.9 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.32 in the second quarter of 2009.

Brian A. Markison, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of King, stated, "I'm pleased to report that in the second quarter Embeda@ prescriptions showed continued growth while Flector@ Patch prescriptions showed improvement. In June, Flector@ recorded its highest number of total prescriptions since December 2009, and it grew five percent sequentially over the first quarter of this year." He continued, "In addition to the progress we are making on the commercial side of the business, our products in development continue to track well against our previously stated timelines. Both Remoxy@ and Acurox@ remain on track for FDA submission, with Remoxy@ scheduled for the end of this year and Acurox@ scheduled for the first quarter of 2011. Finally, later this year we expect to begin enrollment in the phase three safety and efficacy studies for Oxycodone NT, a product specifically designed to resist certain common methods of misuse and abuse. We are very optimistic about the potential for success of our development programs, and look forward to working closely with the Food and Drug Administration toward approval of these novel and important formulations."

Joseph Squicciarino, King's Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Second quarter financial results were in line with our revised expectations. The Company reported cash flow from operations of $51 million, and we continue to believe that we will be able to generate approximately $300 million for the full year." He continued, "King's overall liquidity profile remains strong as evidenced by the recent establishment of a new $500 million dollar, five year revolving credit facility. In addition, we remain confident in our ability to deliver against our previously stated financial guidance for 2010."

Net revenue from branded pharmaceuticals totaled $162 million for the second quarter of 2010, compared to $275 million for the same period of the prior year. Branded pharmaceuticals revenue for the quarter did not include approximately $26 million in royalties recorded for the sales of an authorized SKELAXIN@ generic.

Net sales of SKELAXIN@ (metaxalone) totaled $5 million during the second quarter of 2010, compared to $102 million for the same period of the prior year. Early in the second quarter of 2010, two generic forms of SKELAXIN@ were launched.

THROMBIN-JMI@ (thrombin, topical, bovine, USP) net sales totaled $37 million during the second quarter of 2010, compared to $49 million in the second quarter of 2009.

Net sales of AVINZA@ (morphine sulfate extended release) totaled $25 million during the second quarter of 2010, compared to $29 million in the second quarter of 2009.

Net sales of FLECTOR@ PATCH (diclofenac epolamine topical patch) 1.3% totaled $35 million during the second quarter of 2010, compared to $39 million in the second quarter of 2009.

Net sales of EMBEDA@ (morphine sulfate and naltrexone hydrochloride) Extended Release Capsules totaled $15 million during the second quarter of 2010, up $6 million sequentially from the first quarter of 2010. Wholesaler inventory levels now stand at approximately 3 weeks.

King's Meridian Auto-Injector business contributed revenue totaling $83 million during the second quarter of 2010, compared to $72 million in the second quarter of 2009. The increase was primarily due to price increases, higher unit sales and royalties from the next generation EpiPen@ auto-injector partially offset by lower sales to government agencies.

Net revenue from the Alpharma Animal Health business totaled $85 million during the second quarter of 2010, compared to $83 million in the second quarter of 2009.

As of June 30, 2010, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $573 million.

About Adjusted Financial Results

In addition to financial results determined in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), King provides adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted earnings per share results. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of amortization of intangible assets and non-cash imputed interest expense associated with the Company's $400 million 1 1/4% Convertible Senior Notes, as well as special items. Special items are those particular material income or expense items that King considers to be unrelated to the Company's ongoing, underlying business, non-recurring, or not generally predictable, and include, but are not limited to, merger and restructuring expenses; non-capitalized expenses associated with acquisitions, such as in-process research and development charges and inventory valuation adjustment charges; charges resulting from the early extinguishment of debt; asset impairment charges and gains and losses resulting from the divestiture of assets. King believes that providing adjusted financial results enhances the analysis of the Company's ongoing, underlying business and the analysis of the Company's financial results when comparing those results to that of a previous or subsequent like period. However, it should be noted that the determination of whether to exclude an item from adjusted financial results involves judgments by King's management. A reconciliation of adjusted financial results and King's reported financial results determined in accordance with GAAP is provided below.
