Elite Pharmaceuticals is a specialty pharmaceutical company specializing in niche generics and committed to the development of abuse-deterrent opioids to help curb diversion, misuse and abuse.  Elite has a pipeline of opioid abuse-deterrent products under development utilizing the company’s proprietary pharmacological abuse-deterrent technology.

Elite’s website can be found by going to http://www.elitepharma.com

How ART Works:

Elite’s proprietary abuse-deterrent technology, ART™, is a multi-particulate capsule which contains an opioid agonist in addition to naltrexone, an opioid antagonist used primarily in the management of alcohol dependence and opioid dependence. When this product is taken as intended, the naltrexone is designed to pass through the body unreleased while the opioid agonist releases over time providing therapeutic pain relief for which it is prescribed. If the multi-particulate beads are crushed or dissolved, the opioid antagonist, naltrexone, is designed to release. The absorption of the naltrexone is intended to block the euphoria by preferentially binding to same receptors in the brain as the opioid agonist and thereby reducing the incentive for abuse or misuse by recreational drug abusers. Elite’s pharmacological approach to abuse-deterrence can be applied to a wide range of opioids used today in pain management.

Highlights From Last Quarter:

Third Quarter ending December 31, 2014
♦  Consolidated revenues for the third quarter of Fiscal 2015 continued their upward trend, rising to $1.4 million, an increase of approximately 8.5% over consolidated revenues for the second quarter of Fiscal 2015. The third quarter revenues for this year were $0.3 million below revenues reported for the third quarter of the prior fiscal year due to a one-time $0.6 million milestone that occurred in the prior year third quarter. Development of our proprietary abuse-deterrent opioid technology continues to be Elite's top priority. During the quarter, Elite invested an additional $2.3 million in clinical trials and other product development activities.

Highlights for the third quarter
♦  As of December 31, our working capital was $8.9 million, including cash of $8.3 million.
♦  Isradipine was recently launched, and we expect to introduce Hydroxyzine and Dantrolene in the near-term.
♦  We're a penny stock company with eyes on NASDAQ; we need to be Sarbanes Oxley compliant. So we are evaluating the gaps that we have by hiring consultants and external consultants in order to evaluate the checks and      balances we have in order for us to get there.
♦  We are creating infrastructure in our facilities with expanding the facilities and adding new equipment and upgrading the current equipment in order to support our (Eli-200) product launch.
2014 was our best year, 2015 will be the year we file our first ART product, and Q1 2016 will be the year we launch our first ART product and hopefully will be the year we will be on NASDAQ.

Nine-Month Period Ending December 31, 2014
♦  Revenues for the nine months ending December 31, 2014 were $3.8 million, an increase of 6% over revenues for the comparable period of the prior year, even with the one-time milestone being included in the prior year revenues. The increase in revenues is due to the continued growth and expansion of Elite's generic product lines.
♦  During the first nine months of the fiscal year, Elite has invested a total of $9.9 million in product development, including successful completion of the human abuse liability study for ELI-200.
