Reports Net Revenues of $140.0 Million for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2023
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 9, 2023 / Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMPH) ("Amphastar" or the "Company") today reported results for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
First Quarter Highlights
Dr. Jack Zhang, Amphastar's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "Strong sales of glucagon, Primatene MIST®, and epinephrine played a key role in driving our quarterly sales growth. We expect similar growth trends in our key products to continue while we believe our newly-launched regadenoson and the approval of our intranasal naloxone will add another layer to our complex generics and proprietary products portfolio. Equally important, we expect our proposed BAQSIMI® acquisition will be the start of a transformative period for the Company - by adding to our diabetes portfolio and by expanding our branded products strategy. We are confident in this market as we believe this product aligns with our key focus areas."
* Adjusted non-GAAP net income and Adjusted non-GAAP diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures. Please see the discussion in the section entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures in Table III of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company is disclosing non-GAAP financial measures when providing financial results. The Company believes that an evaluation of its ongoing operations (and comparisons of its current operations with historical and future operations) would be difficult if the disclosure of its financial results were limited to financial measures prepared only in accordance with GAAP. As a result, the Company is disclosing certain non-GAAP results, including (i) Adjusted non-GAAP net income (loss) and (ii) Adjusted non-GAAP diluted EPS, which exclude amortization expense, share-based compensation, impairment charges, legal settlements, and other one-time events in order to supplement investors' and other readers' understanding and assessment of the Company's financial performance because the Company's management uses these measures internally for forecasting, budgeting, and measuring its operating performance. Whenever the Company uses such non-GAAP measures, it will provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors and other readers are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures set forth below and should consider non-GAAP measures only as a supplement to, not as a substitute for or as a superior measure to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
