Net sales for the first half of fiscal 2012 were $1,563,465, an increase of 15% over fiscal 2011. The increase was driven primarily by $107,500 of net sales attributable to the Paddock acquisition and included consolidated new product sales of $95,500.

During the first half of fiscal 2012, the Company recorded certain one-time charges related to the Paddock acquisition, including a $27,179 charge to cost of sales as a result of the step-up in value of inventory acquired and sold during the first quarter, as well as $9,400 of acquisition-related and severance charges.

Second quarter net sales for fiscal 2012 increased 10% or $41,281 compared to fiscal 2011. The increase was due primarily to new product sales of $26,200, primarily in the cough/cold and diabetes care categories, along with an increase in sales of existing products of $20,400, primarily in the cough/cold category. These combined increases were partially offset by a decline of $4,000 in sales of existing products within the analgesics product category that are a result of fiscal 2011's high sales rate of analgesic products due to a key competitor being absent from the market during that time. Net sales were also negatively impacted by $1,600 of unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

Year-to-date operating expenses for fiscal 2012 increased 13% or $14,596 compared to fiscal 2011. The increase was related primarily to increases in selling expenses of $6,900, administrative expenses of $3,700 and research and development expenses of $3,100. Selling expenses increased due primarily to higher spending on sales and marketing promotions in anticipation of future product launches, while administrative expenses increased due primarily to higher compensation-related expenses. The increase in research and development expenses was due primarily to higher Paragraph IV litigation expenses, along with increased spending on developmental materials.

Year-to-date net sales for fiscal 2012 increased 83% or $137,956 compared to fiscal 2011. This increase was due primarily to net sales of $107,500 from the Paddock acquisition, which included $600 in sales of new products launched by this business subsequent to the acquisition date. In addition, legacy new product sales added $10,500, along with market share gains and favorable pricing dynamics on select products as compared to the prior year.
