Highlight of Business Operations:In 2011 we achieved our second successive year of profitability, with significant increases in net income and operating cash flows, driven by increases in product sales, in particular an increase in sales of Xyrem. In 2011, net income and operating cash flows were $125.0 million and $151.6 million, respectively, representing increases of 281% and 158% over 2010, respectively. In July 2011, with cash generated from operations, we repaid in full the $33.3 million principal amount of our term loan and as of December 31, 2011 we had $157.9 million of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities and no debt.
Xyrem product sales increased in 2011 and 2010 compared to the immediately preceding years, primarily due to price increases and to a lesser extent increases in sales volume of 11% in 2011 and 7% in 2010. Luvox CR product sales increased in 2011 compared to 2010, primarily due to price increases and to a lesser extent
Royalties and contract revenues increased in 2011 compared to 2010, primarily due to the recognition of a $1.5 million milestone payment related to sales of Xyrem in Europe by UCB Pharma Limited, or UCB, under a license agreement. Royalties and contract revenues decreased in 2010 as compared to 2009 due to the recognition of a $10.0 million milestone payment in 2009 which was received from UCB in 2008. We expect royalty and contract revenue to decrease slightly in 2012 as compared to 2011.
Cost of product sales increased in 2011 and 2010 compared to the immediately preceding years primarily due to increased sales volumes in both years. As a percentage of product sales, costs were 5.2%, 8.0% and 8.4% in 2011, 2010 and 2009, respectively. The decrease in cost of product sales as a percentage of product sales in 2011 was primarily due to increases in average selling prices. We expect cost of product sales as a percentage of sales to increase in 2012 compared to 2011 because the cost of product sales as a percentage of revenue on the products added to our portfolio as a result of the merger is higher than that of our existing products. In addition, we expect to record expense related to the fair value adjustment to Azur Pharmas inventory held at the effective time of the merger.
XyremInternational. We sell limited quantities of Xyrem to UCB for sale in territories outside of North America, and to Valeant, for sale in Canada, under license and distribution agreements. We recognized revenue of $0.8 million, $0.7 million and $1.0 million from international sales of Xyrem during 2011, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
