PART I

ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

Business Overview

Lannett Company, Inc. and subsidiaries (the "Company," "Lannett," "we," or "us") was incorporated in 1942 under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and reincorporated in 1991 as a Delaware corporation.  We develop, manufacture, market and distribute generic versions of brand pharmaceutical products.  We report financial information on a quarterly and fiscal year basis with the most recent being the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013.  All references herein to a "fiscal year" or "Fiscal" refer to the applicable fiscal year ended June 30.

The Company has experienced net sales growth at a compounded annual growth rate in excess of 23% over the past twelve years.  In that time period net sales went from approximately $12.1 million in fiscal year 2001 to approximately $151.1 million in fiscal year 2013.  This growth has been achieved primarily through strategic partnerships and launches of additional manufactured drugs as well as opportunities resulting from our strong historical record of regulatory compliance.

All products that we currently manufacture and/or distribute are prescription products.  Of the products listed in the table entitled "Current Products" below, our top five products collectively accounted for approximately 69% of our net sales in fiscal years 2013, 2012 and 2011.

Competitive Strengths

Vertically Integrated Manufacturer, Supplier and Distributor of Narcotics and Controlled Drugs .  In July 2008, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration ("DEA") granted Cody Laboratories, Inc. ("Cody Labs") a license to directly import concentrated poppy straw for conversion into opioid-based active pharmaceutical ingredients ("APIs") for use in various dosage forms for pain management.  This license, along with Cody Labs' expertise in API development and manufacture allows the Company to perform in a market with high barriers to entry, no foreign competition, and limited domestic competition.  Because of this vertical integration, the Company has direct control of its supply and can avoid increased costs associated with buying APIs from third-party manufacturers, thereby achieving higher margins.

Proven Ability to Develop Successful Products and Achieve Scale in Production .  We believe that our ability to select viable products for development, efficiently develop such products, including obtaining any applicable regulatory approvals, vertically integrate into certain markets and achieve economies of scale in production are critical for our success in the generic pharmaceutical industry in which we operate.  We intend to focus on long-term profitability driven in part by securing market positions with less competition.

Efficient Development Systems and Manufacturing Expertise for New Products .  We believe that our manufacturing expertise, low overhead expenses, efficient product development, and marketing capabilities can help us remain competitive in the generic pharmaceutical market.  We intend to dedicate significant capital toward developing new products because we believe our success is linked to our ability to continually introduce new generic products into the marketplace.  Competition from new and other market participants for the manufacture and distribution of certain products would likely affect our market share with respect to such products as well as force us to reduce our selling price for such products due to their increased availability.  As a result, we believe that our success depends on our ability to properly assess the competitive market of new products, including market share, the number of competitors and the generic unit price erosion.  We intend to reduce our exposure to competitive influences that may negatively affect our sales and profits, including the potential saturation of the market for certain products, by continuing to emphasize maintenance of a strong research and development ("R&D") pipeline.

Mutually Beneficial Supply and Distribution Arrangements .  In 2004, we entered into an exclusive ten-year distribution agreement (the "JSP Distribution Agreement") with Jerome Stevens Pharmaceuticals ("JSP") covering four different product lines.  Two of these product lines, Levothyroxine Sodium and Digoxin, collectively accounted for approximately 46% of our net sales in fiscal year 2013 and both products have experienced significant market growth in sales over the past few years.  On August 19, 2013 the Company reached an agreement with JSP to extend the term of the initial agreement.  Refer to Note 22 "Subsequent Events" for more information.

Table of Contents

Dependable Supplier to our Customers .  We believe we are viewed within the generic pharmaceutical industry as a strong, dependable supplier.  We have cultivated strong and dependable customer relationships by maintaining adequate inventory levels, employing a responsive order filling system and prioritizing timely fulfillment of those orders.  A majority of our orders are filled and shipped either on the day that we receive the order, or the following day.

Strong Track Record of Obtaining Regulatory Approvals for New Products .  During the past two fiscal years, we have received eight approved Abbreviated New Drug Applications (each, an "ANDA") and one approved ANDA supplement from the Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA").  We currently expect to receive several more during the next fiscal year.  These regulatory approvals will enable us to manufacture and supply a broader portfolio of generic pharmaceutical products.

Reputation for Regulatory Compliance .  We have a strong track record of regulatory compliance.  We believe that we have strong effective regulatory compliance capabilities and practices which result from the hiring of qualified individuals and the implementation of strong current Good Manufacturing Practices ("cGMP").  Our agility in responding quickly to market events and a reputation for regulatory compliance position us to avail ourselves of market opportunities as they are presented to us.

In addition, narcotics which are classified by the DEA as "controlled drugs" are subject to a rigorous regulatory compliance regimen.  We are one of seven companies in the U.S. that have been granted a license from the DEA to import raw concentrated poppy straw for conversion into APIs.  Such licenses are renewed annually, and non-compliance could result in a license not being renewed.  As a result, we believe that our strong reputation for regulatory compliance allows us to have a competitive edge in managing the production and distribution of controlled drugs.

Business Strategies

Continue to Broaden our Product Lines Through Internal Development and Strategic Partnerships .  We are focused on increasing our market share in the generic pharmaceutical industry while concentrating additional resources on the development of new products, with an emphasis on controlled substance products.  We continue to improve our financial performance by expanding our line of generic products, increasing unit sales to current customers, creating manufacturing efficiencies, and managing our overhead and administrative costs.

We have targeted four strategies for expanding our product offerings: (1) deploying our experienced R&D staff to develop products in-house, (2) entering into product development agreements or strategic partnerships with third-party product developers and formulators, (3) purchasing ANDAs from other generic manufacturers and (4) marketing drugs under brand names.  We expect that each method will facilitate our identification, selection and development of additional generic pharmaceutical products that we may distribute through our existing network of customers.

We have several existing supply and development agreements with both international and domestic companies, and are currently in negotiations on similar agreements with additional companies, through which we can market and distribute future products.  We intend to capitalize on our strong customer relationships to build our market share for such products.

Improve our Operating Profile in Certain Targeted Specialty Markets .  In certain situations, we may increase our focus on particular specialty markets within the generic pharmaceutical industry.  By narrowing our focus to specialty markets, we can provide product alternatives in categories with relatively fewer market participants.  We plan to strengthen our relationships with strategic partners, including providers of product development research, raw materials, APIs and finished products.  We believe that mutually beneficial strategic relationships in such areas, including potential financing arrangements, partnerships, joint ventures or acquisitions, could enhance our competitive advantages in the generic pharmaceutical market.

Leverage Ability to Vertically Integrate as a Manufacturer, Supplier and Distributor of Controlled Substance Products .  One initiative that is at the core of the Company's strategy is to continue leveraging the asset we acquired in Cody Labs in 2007.  In July 2008, the DEA granted Cody Labs a license to directly import concentrated poppy straw for conversion into opioid-based APIs for use in various dosage forms for pain management.  The value of this license comes from the fact that, to date, only six other companies in the U.S. have been granted this license.  This license, along with Cody Labs' expertise in API development and manufacture, allows the Company to perform in a market with high barriers to entry, no foreign competition, and limited domestic competition.  Because of this vertical integration, the Company has direct control of its supply and can avoid increased costs associated with buying APIs from third-party manufacturers, thereby achieving higher margins.  The Company can also leverage this vertical integration not only for direct supply of opioid-based APIs, but also for the manufacture non-opioid-based APIs.

The Company believes that the demand for controlled substance, pain management drugs will continue to grow as the "Baby Boomer" generation ages.  By concentrating additional resources in the development of opioid-based APIs and dosage forms, the Company is well-positioned to take advantage of this opportunity.  The Company is currently vertically integrated on two products with several others in various stages of development.

Key Products

Levothyroxine Sodium tablets are produced and marketed with 12 varying potencies.  In addition to generic Levothyroxine Sodium tablets, we also market and distribute Unithroid® tablets, a brand version of Levothyroxine Sodium tablets, which is produced and marketed with 11 varying potencies.  Both generic Levothyroxine Sodium and Unithroid® tablets are manufactured by JSP.  Levothyoxine Sodium tablets remain one of the most prescribed drugs in the U.S. and are used by patients of various ages and demographic backgrounds for the treatment of thyroid deficiency.  Net sales of Levothyroxine Sodium and Unithroid® tablets totaled $58.0 million in 2013.  In our distribution of these products, we compete with two brand Levothroxine Sodium products-Abbott Laboratories' Synthroid ®  and Monarch Pharmaceutical's Levoxyl ® - as well as generic products from Mylan and Sandoz.

Digoxin tablets are produced and marketed with two different potencies.  This product is manufactured by JSP and we distribute it under the JSP Distribution Agreement.  Digoxin tablets are used to treat congestive heart failure in patients of various ages and demographics.  Net sales of this product totaled $11.7 million in 2013.  In our distribution of these products, we compete with two similar generic products from Impax and West-Ward and the brand Lanoxin from Covis.

We distribute three products containing Butalbital.  We have manufactured and sold one of the products, Butalbital with Aspirin and Caffeine capsules, for more than 20 years.  The other Butalbital product, Butalbital with Aspirin, Caffeine and Codeine Phosphate capsules, is manufactured by JSP and distributed under the JSP Distribution Agreement.  Both Butalbital products, which are in orally administered capsule dosage forms, are prescribed to treat migraines and tension headaches caused by contractions of the muscles in the neck and shoulder area.  The drug is prescribed primarily for adults of various demographics.  Migraines are an increasingly prevalent condition in the United States and we believe the demand for effective medical treatments will continue to increase.  Although new innovator drugs to treat migraines have been introduced by brand name drug companies, we believe that there is still a loyal following of doctors and consumers who prefer to use Butalbital products for treatment.

Cocaine Topical™ Solution ("C-Topical®") is produced and marketed under a preliminary new drug application ("PIND") in two different strengths and two different size containers.  Sales of C-Topical® approximated 10% of Lannett's net sales during Fiscal 2013.  This drug is utilized primarily for the anesthetization of the patient during ear, nose or throat surgery.

Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution is produced and marketed in three different size containers.  We manufacture this product at Cody Labs and are currently finishing the manufacturing methods and capabilities to make the API.  This drug is prescribed primarily for the management of pain in adults where other products or delivery methods are not tolerable.  As recently as March 2009, nine different companies, including Lannett, were manufacturing and/or distributing this product.  As a result of enforcement actions by the FDA during fiscal years 2009 and 2010 (see Item 1.  Government Regulation), six of those companies, including Lannett, voluntarily left the market by July 2010.  From July 2010 through June 2011, only one company had an approved NDA for this product and enjoyed market exclusivity until Lannett became the second approved manufacturer of this product in June 2011 and resumed sales of this product during the first fiscal quarter of 2012.

Oxycodone HCl Oral Solution ("Oxycodone") was produced until August 20, 2012 and marketed until October 4, 2012 in two different size containers, at which point, as a result of FDA enforcement actions against market participants, the Company voluntarily exited the market.  Prior to the enforcement actions the Company had submitted an ANDA to the FDA.  The Company was granted expedited review for this application.  The Company expects to receive approval and resume selling Oxycodone in the near future.  Once approval is granted we will resume manufacture of these solution dosage forms at our Cody Labs subsidiary.

Validated Pharmaceutical Capabilities

Our 31,000 square foot manufacturing facility sits on 3.5 acres of Company owned land.  In addition, we own a 63,000 square foot building residing on 3.0 acres of Company owned land.  This facility is located within one mile of our manufacturing facility.  The facility houses packaging, research and development, and has capacity for additional manufacturing space, if needed.  We also own a 66,000 square foot building on 7.3 acres of land, which is used for certain administrative functions, warehouse space and shipping.  It also has capacity for additional manufacturing space, if needed.  All three of these buildings are located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Table of Contents

The manufacturing facility of our wholly-owned subsidiary, Cody Labs, consists of an approximately 73,000 square foot facility located on approximately 15.0 acres of land in Cody, Wyoming.  Cody Labs leases the facility from Cody LCI Realty, LLC ("Realty"), which is 50% owned by Lannett and 50% by a former officer of Cody Labs.  Cody Labs' manufacturing facility currently has capacity for further expansion, both inside and outside the existing structure.

We have adopted many new processes in support of regulations relating to cGMPs in the last several years, and we believe we are operating our facilities in substantial compliance with the FDA's cGMP regulations.  In designing our facilities, full attention was given to material flow, equipment and automation, quality control and inspection.  A granulator, an automatic film coating machine, high-speed tablet presses, blenders, encapsulators, fluid bed dryers, high shear mixers, and high-speed bottle filling are a few examples of the sophisticated product development, manufacturing and packaging equipment used in the production process.  In addition, our Quality Control laboratory facilities are equipped with high precision instruments, such as automated liquid chromatographs, gas chromatographs, and laser particle size analyzers.

We continue to pursue the FDA's comprehensive plan entitled "Quality by Design" for improving and maintaining quality control and quality assurance programs in our pharmaceutical development and manufacturing facilities.  The FDA periodically inspects our production facilities to determine our compliance with the FDA's manufacturing standards.  Typically, after completing its inspection, the FDA will issue a report, entitled a "Form 483", containing observations arising from an inspection.  The FDA's observations may be minor or severe in nature and the degree of severity is generally determined by the time necessary to remediate the cGMP violation, any consequences to the consumer of the products, and whether the observation is subject to a Warning Letter from the FDA.  By strictly complying with cGMPs and the various FDA guidelines, and Good Laboratory Practices ("GLPs"), as well as adherence to our Standard Operating Procedures, we have successfully minimized the number of observations in our FDA inspections in recent years, and in more than 70 years of business have never received a Warning Letter.

Research and Development Process

Over the past several years, we have heavily invested in R&D projects.  The costs of these R&D efforts are expensed during the periods incurred.  We believe that such costs may be recovered in future years when we receive marketing approval from the FDA to distribute such products.  We have embarked on a plan to grow in future years, which includes organic growth to be achieved through our R&D efforts.  We expect that our growing list of generic products under development will drive future growth.  Over the past several years, we have hired additional personnel in product development, production, and formulation.  The following steps outline the numerous stages in the generic drug development process:

1.) Formulation and Analytical Method Development .  After a drug candidate is selected for future sale, product development scientists perform various experiments on the incorporation of active ingredients into a dosage form.  These experiments will result in the creation of a number of product formulations to determine which formula will be most suitable for our subsequent development process.  Various formulations are tested in the laboratory to measure results against the innovator drug.  During this time, we may use reverse engineering methods on samples of the innovator drug to determine the type and quantity of inactive ingredients.  During the formulation phase, our R&D chemists begin to develop an analytical, laboratory testing method.  The successful development of this test method will allow us to test developmental and commercial batches of the product in the future.  All of the information used in the final formulation, including the analytical test methods adopted for the generic drug candidate, will be included as part of the Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls section of the ANDA submitted to the FDA.

2.) Scale-up and Tech Transfer .  After product development scientists and the R&D chemists agree on a final formulation for use in moving the drug candidate forward in the developmental process, we then attempt to increase the batch size of the product.  The batch size represents the standard magnitude to be used in manufacturing a batch of the product.  The determination of batch size affects the amount of raw material that is used in the manufacturing process and the number of expected dosages to be created during the production cycle.  We attempt to determine batch size based on the amount of active ingredient in each dosage, the available production equipment and unit sales projections.  The scaled-up batch is then generally produced in our commercial manufacturing facilities.  During this manufacturing process, we document the equipment used, the amount of time in each major processing step and any other steps needed to consistently produce a batch of that product.  This information, generally referred to as the validated manufacturing process, is included in the ANDA.

3.) Bioequivalency and Clinical testing .  After a successful scale-up of the generic drug batch, we schedule and perform bioequivalency testing on the product, and in some cases clinical testing if required by the FDA.  These procedures, which are generally outsourced to third parties, include testing the absorption of the generic product in the human bloodstream compared to the absorption of the innovator drug.  The results of this testing are then documented and reported to us to determine the "success" of the generic drug product.  Success, in this context, means that we are able to demonstrate that our product is comparable to the innovator product in dosage form, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics and intended use.

Table of Contents

Since bioequivalence (meaning that the product performs in the same manner and in the same amount of time as the innovator drug) and a stable formula are the primary requirements for a generic drug approval (assuming the manufacturing plant is in compliance with the FDA's cGMP regulations).  Lengthy and costly clinical trials proving safety and efficacy, which are required by the FDA for innovator drug approvals, are typically unnecessary for generic companies.  If the results are successful, we will continue the collection of information and documentation for assembly of the drug application.

4.) Submission of the ANDA for FDA review and approval .  The ANDA process became formalized under The Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984, also known as the Hatch-Waxman Act ("Hatch-Waxman Act").  The Hatch-Waxman Act amended the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act ("FDCA") to permit the FDA to review and approve an ANDA for a generic equivalent of a new drug product, which previously received FDA approval through its new drug approval process, without having the generic drug company conduct costly clinical trials.  An ANDA is a comprehensive submission that contains, among other things, data and information pertaining to the active pharmaceutical ingredient, drug product formulation, specifications and stability of the generic drug, as well as analytical methods, manufacturing process validation data, and quality control procedures.

According to information obtained from the FDA, the current FDA median review time for ANDAs is 31 months.  While we have received approval for some of our ANDAs in as little as 14 months, we have also waited longer than 36 months before receiving approval.  Subsequently, the FDA advised that electronic submissions of applications may shorten the approval process.  We currently file our ANDAs and NDAs electronically.  On July 9, 2012 the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act was enacted, which included the Generic Drug User Fee Amendments of 2012 ("GDUFA").  Under these Amendments the FDA committed to reviewing 90% of complete electronic generic applications within 10 months after the date of submission.  ANDAs and NDAs submitted for our products may not receive FDA approval on a timely basis, or at all.

When a generic drug company files an ANDA with the FDA, they must certify either (i) that no patent was filed for the listed drug (a "paragraph I" certification), (ii) that the patent has expired (a "paragraph II" certification), (iii) that the patent will expire on a specified date and the ANDA filer will not market the drug until that date (a "paragraph III" certification), or (iv) that the patent is invalid or would not be infringed by the manufacture, use, or sale of the new drug (a "paragraph IV" certification). A paragraph IV certification must be provided to each owner of the patent that is the subject of the certification and to the holder of the approved NDA to which the ANDA refers.  A paragraph IV certification can trigger an automatic 30 month stay of the ANDA if the innovator company files a claim which would delay the approval of the generic company's ANDA.  To date, we have filed one paragraph IV certification.

Sales and Customer Relationships

We sell our pharmaceutical products to generic pharmaceutical distributors, drug wholesalers, chain drug retailers, private label distributors, mail-order pharmacies, other pharmaceutical manufacturers, managed care organizations, hospital buying groups, governmental entities and health maintenance organizations.  We promote our products through direct sales, trade shows, and bids.  We continue to expand our sales to major chain drug stores.  Our practice of maintaining an adequate inventory, employing a responsive order filling system and prioritizing timely fulfillment of those orders have contributed to a strong reputation among our customers as a dependable supplier of high quality generic pharmaceuticals.

Management

We have been focused on enhancing the quality of our management team in anticipation of continuing growth.  We have hired experienced personnel from large, established, brand pharmaceutical companies as well as competing generic companies to complement the skills and knowledge of the existing management team.  As we continue to grow, additional personnel may need to be added to our management team.  We intend to hire the best people available to expand the knowledge base and expertise within our personnel ranks.

In September 2011, we received a letter from the FDA with approval to market and launch Loxapine Succinate Capsules, 5 mg, 10 mg, 25 mg, and 50 mg.  Loxapine Capsules, 5 mg, 10 mg, 25 mg, and 50 mg are therapeutically equivalent to the reference listed drug, Loxitane® Capsules, 5 mg, 10 mg, 25 mg, and 50 mg from Watson Pharmaceuticals.  Retail pharmacy sales of Loxapine Capsules at AWP were approximately $22.3 million for the 12-month period ending June 2011.

In October 2011, we received a letter from the FDA with approval to market and launch Diethylpropion HCl Extended Release Tablets, 75 mg.  Sales of Diethylpropion HCl Extended Release Tablets, 75 mg, at AWP were approximately $7.6 million on an annual basis.  Diethylpropion HCl, as with most anti-obesity drugs, primarily is sold to bariatric clinics.

In December 2011, we received a letter from the FDA with approval to market and launch Triamterene with Hydrochlorothiazide 37.5/25 mg Capsules.  Triamterene with Hydrochlorothiazide 37.5/25 mg Capsules is therapeutically equivalent to the reference listed drug, Dyazide® Capsules, 25/37.5 mg, of SmithKline Beecham.  Sales of Triamterene Hydrochlorothiazide 37.5/25 mg Capsules, at AWP were approximately $111.0 million for the 12 months ending October 2011.

In January 2012, we received a letter from the FDA with approval to market and launch Hydrochlorothiazide Capsules, 12.5 mg.  Hydrochlorothiazide Capsules, 12.5 mg, is therapeutically equivalent to the reference listed drug, Microzide® Capsules, 12.5 mg, of Watson Pharmaceuticals.  Sales of Hydrochlorothiazide Capsules, 12.5 mg, at AWP were approximately $204.0 million for the 12 months ending October 2011.  Hydrochlorothiazide is indicated in the management of hypertension.

In January 2012, we received a letter from the FDA with approval of a supplemental Abbreviated New Drug Application for Phentermine HCl Capsules, 15 mg.  Sales of Phentermine HCl Capsules, 15 mg, at AWP were approximately $11.0 million for the year ended December 2011.  Additional sales of this drug are made through bariatric centers.

In September 2012 we received a letter from the FDA with approval to market and launch Butalbital, Acetaminophen and Caffeine Tablets, USP, 50mg/325mg/40mg.  According to IMS, for the year ended July 2012 total sales of Butalbital, Acetaminophen and Caffeine Tablets at AWP were approximately $30 million, of which about $15 million was for the brand version, Fioricet®.

We have additional products currently under development which are orally administered solid-dosage products (i.e. tablet/capsule) or oral solutions, topicals or parentarels designed to be generic equivalents to brand named innovator drugs.  Our developmental drug products are intended to treat a diverse range of indications.  The products under development are at various stages in the development cycle-formulation, scale-up, clinical testing and FDA review.

The cost associated with each product that we are currently developing is dependent on numerous factors, including but not limited to, the complexity of the active ingredient's chemical characteristics, the price of the raw materials and the FDA-mandated requirement of bioequivalence studies (depending on the FDA's Orange Book classification).  The cost to develop a new generic product varies but could range up to several million dollars.

In addition, we currently own several ANDAs that are dormant for products which we currently do not manufacture and market.  Occasionally, we review such ANDAs to determine if the market potential for any of these older drugs has recently changed to make it attractive for us to reconsider manufacturing and selling.  If we decide to introduce one of these products into the consumer market, we must review the original ANDA and related documentation to ensure that the approved product specifications, formulation and other factors meet current FDA requirements for the marketing of the applicable drug.  Generally, in these situations, we file a supplement to the FDA for the applicable ANDA, informing the FDA of any significant changes in the manufacturing process, the formulation, the raw material supplier or another major feature of the previously approved ANDA.  We would then redevelop the product and submit it to the FDA for supplemental approval.  The FDA's approval process for an ANDA supplement is similar to that of a new ANDA.

In addition to the efforts of our internal product development group, we have contracted with several outside firms for the formulation and development of several new generic drug products.  These outsourced R&D products are at various stages in the development cycle-formulation, analytical method development, and testing and manufacturing scale-up.  These products include orally administered solid dosage products, injectables and nasal delivery products that are intended to treat a diverse range of medical indications.  We intend to ultimately transfer the formulation technology and manufacturing process for some of these R&D products to our own commercial manufacturing sites.  We initiated these outsourced R&D efforts to complement the progress of our own internal R&D efforts.

The majority of our R&D projects are being developed in-house and thus our contracts with third-parties for product development are not material in nature, nor are we substantially dependent on the services rendered by such outside firms.

We incurred R&D expenses of approximately $16.3 million in fiscal year 2013, $11.8 million in fiscal year 2012, and $8.6 million in fiscal year 2011.  These amounts included expenses associated with bioequivalence studies, internal development resources as well as outsourced development.  While we manage all R&D from our principal executive office in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, we have also been taking steps to capitalize on favorable development costs in other countries.  We have strategic partnerships with various companies that either act as contract research organizations or API suppliers as well as dosage form manufacturers.  In addition, U.S.-based research organizations have been engaged for product development to enhance our internal development.  Fixed payment arrangements are established between Lannett and these development partners and in some cases include a royalty provision.  Development payments are normally scheduled in advance, based on attaining development milestones.

Raw Materials and Finished Goods Suppliers

Our use of raw materials in the production process consists of using pharmaceutical chemicals in various forms that are generally available from several sources.  FDA approval is required in connection with the process of using active ingredient suppliers.  In addition to the raw materials we purchase for the production process, we purchase certain finished dosage inventories.  We sell these finished dosage form products directly to our customers along with the finished dosage form products manufactured in-house.  We generally take precautionary measures to avoid a disruption in raw materials and finished goods, such as finding secondary suppliers for certain raw materials or finished goods when available.

Our primary finished goods supplier is JSP in Bohemia, New York.  Purchases of finished goods from JSP accounted for approximately 60% of our inventory purchases in fiscal year 2013, 64% in fiscal year 2012 and 64% in fiscal year 2011.  On March 23, 2004, we entered into the JSP Distribution Agreement for the exclusive distribution rights in the United States to the current line of JSP products.  The products covered under the JSP Distribution Agreement include Butalbital, Aspirin, Caffeine with Codeine Phosphate Capsules, Digoxin Tablets and Levothyroxine Sodium Tablets, sold generically and under the brand name Unithroid ® .  The initial term of the JSP Distribution Agreement is ten years, beginning on March 23, 2004 and continuing through March 22, 2014.  See Note 20 "Material Contracts with Suppliers" and Note 22 "Subsequent Events" to our consolidated financial statements for more information on the terms, conditions and financial impact of the JSP Distribution Agreement and subsequent amendment.

During the term of the JSP Distribution Agreement, we are required to use commercially reasonable efforts to purchase minimum dollar quantities of JSP's products that we distribute.  The minimum quantity to be purchased in the first year of the JSP Distribution Agreement was $15.0 million.  Thereafter, the minimum purchase quantity increases by $1.0 million per year up to $24.0 million for the last year of the JSP Distribution Agreement.  We have met each applicable minimum purchase requirement to date, but there is no guarantee that we will be able to continue to do so in Fiscal 2014.  If we do not meet the minimum purchase requirements, JSP's sole remedy is to terminate the JSP Distribution Agreement.  On August 19, 2013 the Company reached an agreement with JSP to extend the term of the initial agreement.  Refer to Note 22 "Subsequent Events" for more information.

We have entered into definitive supply and development agreements with international companies, including, Azad Pharma AG, Swiss Caps of Switzerland, and Pharma 2B (formerly Pharmaseed) and The GC Group of Israel, as well as domestic companies, including JSP, Cerovene, and Summit Bioscience LLC.  We are currently in negotiations on similar agreements with other companies, through which we will market and distribute future products manufactured in-house or by third parties.  We intend to capitalize on our strong customer relationships to build market share for such products, and increase future revenues and income.

Customers and Marketing

We sell our products primarily to wholesale distributors, generic drug distributors, mail-order pharmacies, group purchasing organizations, chain drug stores and other pharmaceutical companies.  The pharmaceutical industry's largest wholesale distributors, Amerisource Bergen, Cardinal Health, and McKesson, accounted for 12%, 10%, and 9%, respectively, of our net sales in fiscal year 2013 and 11%, 12% and 9%, respectively, of our net sales in fiscal year 2012.  Our largest chain drug store customer, Walgreens, accounted for 17% and 18% of net sales in fiscal year 2013 and fiscal year 2012, respectively.  We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers' financial condition, and have experienced no significant collection problems to date.  Generally, we require no collateral from our customers.

Sales to wholesale customers include "indirect sales," which represent sales to third-party entities, such as independent pharmacies, managed care organizations, hospitals, nursing homes, and group purchasing organizations, collectively referred to as "indirect customers."  We enter into definitive agreements with our indirect customers to establish pricing for certain covered products.  Under such agreements, the indirect customers independently select a wholesaler from which to purchase the products at these agreed-upon prices.  We will provide credit to the wholesaler for the difference between the agreed-upon price with the indirect customer and the wholesaler's invoice price.  This credit is called a "chargeback."  For more information on chargebacks, see the section entitled "Critical Accounting Policies" in Item 7, "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" of this Form 10-K.  These indirect sale transactions are recorded on our books as sales to wholesale customers.

We promote our products through direct sales, trade shows and group purchasing organizations' bidding processes.  We also market our products through private label arrangements, under which we manufacture our products with a label containing the name and logo of our customer.  This practice is commonly referred to as "private label business."  Private label business allows us to leverage our internal sales efforts by using the marketing services from other well-respected pharmaceutical suppliers.  The focus of our sales efforts is the relationships we create with our customer accounts.  Strong and dependable customer relationships have created a positive platform for us to increase our sales volumes.  Historically and in fiscal years 2013, 2012 and 2011, our advertising expenses were immaterial.  When our sales representatives make contact with a customer, we will generally offer to supply the customer our products at fixed prices.  If accepted, the customer's purchasing department will coordinate the purchase, receipt and distribution of the products throughout its distribution centers and retail outlets.  Once a customer accepts our supply of a product, the customer typically expects a high standard of service, including timely receipt of products ordered, availability of convenient, user-friendly and effective customer service functions and maintaining open lines of communication.

We believe that retail-level consumer demand dictates the total volume of sales for various products.  In the event that wholesale and retail customers adjust their purchasing volumes, we believe that consumer demand will be fulfilled by other wholesale or retail sources of supply.  As a result, we attempt to develop and maintain strong relationships with most of the major retail chains, wholesale distributors and mail-order pharmacies in order to facilitate the supply of our products through whatever channel the consumer prefers.  Although we have agreements with customers governing the transaction terms of our sales, generally there are no minimum purchase quantities applicable to these agreements.

Competition

The manufacturing and distribution of generic pharmaceutical products is a highly competitive industry.  Competition is based primarily on price.  In addition to competitive pricing our competitive advantages are our ability to provide strong and dependable customer service by maintaining adequate inventory levels, employing a responsive order filling system and prioritizing timely fulfillment of orders.  We ensure that our products are available from national suppliers as well as our own warehouse.  The modernization of our facilities, hiring of experienced staff and implementation of inventory and quality control programs have improved our competitive cost position over the past five years.

Government Regulation

Pharmaceutical manufacturers are subject to extensive regulation by the federal government, principally by the FDA, and, in cases of controlled substance products the DEA, and to a lesser extent by other federal regulatory bodies and state governments.  The FDCA, the Controlled Substance Act (the "CSA") and other federal statutes and regulations govern or influence the testing, manufacture, safety, labeling, storage, record keeping, approval, pricing, advertising, and promotion of our generic drug products.  Noncompliance with applicable regulations can result in fines, product recalls, and seizure of products, total or partial suspension of production, personal and/or corporate prosecution and debarment, and refusal of the government to approve new drug applications.  The FDA also has the authority to revoke previously approved drug applications.

Generally, FDA approval is required before a prescription drug can be marketed.  A new drug is one not generally recognized by qualified experts as safe and effective for its intended use.  New drugs are typically developed and submitted to the FDA by companies expecting to brand the product and sell it.  The FDA review process for new drugs is very extensive and requires a substantial investment to research and test the drug candidate.  However, less burdensome approval procedures are generally used for generic equivalents.  Typically, the investment required to develop a generic drug is less costly than the innovator drug.

Table of Contents

There are currently three ways to obtain FDA approval of a drug:

· New Drug Applications (NDA) :   Unless one of the two procedures discussed in the following sections is available, a manufacturer must conduct and submit to the FDA complete clinical studies to establish a drug's safety and efficacy.  The new drug approval process generally involves:

· completion of preclinical laboratory and animal testing in compliance with the FDA's GLP regulations;

· submission to the FDA of an Investigational New Drug ("IND") application for human clinical testing, which must become effective before human clinical trials may begin;

· performance of adequate and well-controlled human clinical trials to establish the safety and efficacy of the proposed drug product for each intended use;

· satisfactory completion of an FDA pre-approval inspection of the facility or facilities at which the product is produced to assess compliance with the FDA's cGMP regulations; and

· submission to and approval by the FDA of an NDA.

The results of preclinical tests, together with manufacturing information and analytical data, are submitted to the FDA as part of an IND, which must become effective before human clinical trials may begin.  Further, each clinical trial must be reviewed and approved by an independent Institutional Review Board.  Human clinical trials are typically conducted in three sequential phases that may overlap.  These phases generally include:

· Phase I, during which the drug is introduced into healthy human subjects or, on occasion, patients and is tested for safety, stability, dose tolerance, and metabolism;

· Phase II, during which the drug is introduced into a limited patient population to determine the efficacy of the product in specific targeted indications, to determine dosage tolerance and optimal dosage, and to identify possible adverse effects and safety risks; and

· Phase III, during which the clinical trial is expanded to a larger and more diverse patient group at geographically dispersed clinical trial sites to further evaluate clinical efficacy, optimal dosage, and safety.

The drug sponsor, the FDA, or the independent Institutional Review Board at each institution at which a clinical trial is being performed may suspend a clinical trial at any time for various reasons, including a belief that the subjects are being exposed to an unacceptable health risk.

The results of preclinical animal studies and human clinical studies, together with other detailed information, are submitted to the FDA as part of the NDA.  The NDA also must contain extensive manufacturing information.  The FDA may disapprove the NDA if applicable FDA regulatory criteria are not satisfied or it may require additional clinical data.  Once approved, the FDA may withdraw the product approval if compliance with pre- and post-market regulatory standards is not maintained or if problems occur or are identified after the product reaches the marketplace.  In addition, the FDA may require post-marketing studies to monitor the effect of approved products and may limit further marketing of the product based on the results of these post-marketing studies.  The FDA has broad post-market regulatory and enforcement powers, including the ability to levy fines and civil penalties, suspend or delay issuance of approvals, seize or recall products, and withdraw approvals.

Satisfaction of FDA new drug approval requirements typically takes several years, and the actual time required may vary substantially based upon the type, complexity, and novelty of the product or disease.  Government regulation may delay or prevent marketing of potential products for a considerable period of time and/or require additional procedures which increase manufacturing costs.  Success in early stage clinical trials does not assure success in later stage clinical trials.  Data obtained from clinical activities is not always conclusive and may be subject to varying interpretations that could delay, limit, or prevent regulatory approval.  Even if a product receives regulatory approval, later discovery of previously unknown problems with a product may result in restrictions on the product or even complete withdrawal of the product from the market.

· Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDA) :   An ANDA is similar to an NDA except that the FDA generally waives the requirement of complete clinical studies of safety and efficacy.  However, it may require bioavailability and bioequivalence studies.  Bioavailability indicates the rate of absorption and levels of concentration of a drug in the bloodstream needed to produce a therapeutic effect.  Bioequivalence compares one drug product with another and indicates if the rate of absorption and the levels of concentration of a generic drug in the body are within prescribed statistical limits to those of a previously approved drug.  Under the Hatch-Waxman Act, an ANDA may be submitted for a drug on the basis that it is the equivalent of an approved drug regardless of when such other drug was approved.  The FDA will approve the generic product as suitable for an ANDA application if it finds that the generic product does not raise new questions of safety and effectiveness as compared to the innovator product.  A product is not eligible for ANDA approval if the FDA determines that it is not equivalent to the referenced innovator drug, if it is intended for a different use, or if it is not subject to an approved Suitability Petition.  However, such a product might be approved under an NDA, with supportive data from clinical trials.

In addition to establishing a new ANDA procedure, the Hatch-Waxman Act created statutory protections for approved brand name drugs.  Under the Hatch-Waxman Act, an ANDA for a generic drug may not be made effective until all relevant product and use patents for the brand name drug have expired or have been determined to be invalid.  Prior to this act, the FDA gave no consideration to the patent status of a previously approved drug.  Upon NDA approval, the FDA lists in its Orange Book the approved drug product and any patents identified by the NDA applicant that relate to the drug product.  Any applicant who files an ANDA seeking approval of a generic equivalent version of a drug listed in the FDA's Orange Book before expiration of the referenced patent(s), must certify to the FDA that (1) no patent information on the drug product that is the subject of the ANDA has been submitted to the FDA; (2) such patent has expired; (3) the date on which such patent expires; or (4) such patent is invalid or will not be infringed upon by the manufacture, use, or sale of the drug product for which the ANDA is submitted. This last certification is known as a Paragraph IV certification.  A notice of the Paragraph IV certification must be provided to each owner of the patent that is the subject of the certification and to the holder of the approved NDA to which the ANDA refers.  Before the enactment of the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003 (the "MMA"), which amended the Hatch-Waxman Act, if the NDA holder or patent owner(s) asserted a patent challenge within 45 days of its receipt of the certification notice, the FDA was prevented from approving that ANDA until the earlier of 30 months from the receipt of the notice of the paragraph IV certification, the expiration of the patent, when the infringement case concerning each such patent was favorably decided in an ANDA applicant's favor, or such shorter or longer period as may be ordered by a court. This prohibition is generally referred to as the 30-month stay.  In some cases, NDA owners and patent holders have obtained additional patents for their products after an ANDA had been filed but before that ANDA received final marketing approval, and then initiated a new patent challenge, which resulted in more than one 30-month stay.  The MMA amended the Hatch-Waxman Act to eliminate certain unfair advantages of patent holders in the implementation of the Hatch-Waxman Act.  As a result, the NDA owner remains entitled to an automatic 30-month stay if it initiates a patent infringement lawsuit within 45 days of its receipt of notice of a paragraph IV certification, but only if the patent infringement lawsuit is directed to patents that were listed in the FDA's Orange Book before the ANDA was filed.  An ANDA applicant is now permitted to take legal action to enjoin or prohibit the listing of certain of these patents as a counterclaim in response to a claim by the NDA owner that its patent covers its approved drug product.

If an ANDA applicant is the first-to-file a substantially complete ANDA with a paragraph IV certification and provides appropriate notice to the FDA, the NDA holder, and all patent owner(s) for a particular generic product, the applicant may be awarded a 180-day period of marketing exclusivity against other companies that subsequently file ANDAs for that same product.  A substantially complete ANDA is one that contains all the information required by the Hatch-Waxman Act and the FDA's regulations, including the results of any required bioequivalence studies.  The FDA may refuse to accept the filing of an ANDA that is not substantially complete or may determine during substantive review of the ANDA that additional information, such as an additional bioequivalence study, is required to support approval.  Such a determination may affect an applicant's first to file status and eligibility for a 180-day period of marketing exclusivity for the generic product.  The MMA also modified the rules governing when the 180-day marketing exclusivity period is triggered or forfeited and shared.  Prior to the legislation, the 180-day marketing exclusivity period was triggered upon the first commercial marketing of the ANDA or a court decision holding the patent invalid, unenforceable, or not infringed.  For ANDAs accepted for filing before March 2000, that court decision had to be final and non-appealable (other than a petition to the U.S. Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari).  In March 2000, the FDA changed its position in response to two court cases that challenged the FDA's original interpretation of what constituted a court decision under the Hatch-Waxman Act.  Under the changed policy, the 180-day marketing exclusivity period began running immediately upon a district court decision holding the patent at issue invalid, unenforceable, or not infringed, regardless of whether the ANDA had been approved and the generic product had been marketed.  In codifying the FDA's original policy, the MMA retroactively applies a final and non-appealable court decision trigger for all ANDAs filed before December 8, 2003 leaving intact the first commercial marketing trigger.  As for ANDAs filed after December 8, 2003, the marketing exclusivity period is only triggered upon the first commercial marketing of the ANDA product, but that exclusivity may be forfeited under certain circumstances, including, if the ANDA is not marketed within 75 days after a final and non-appealable court decision by the first-to-file or other ANDA applicant, or if the FDA does not tentatively approve the first-to-file applicant's ANDA within 30 months.

Table of Contents

In addition to patent exclusivity, the holder of the NDA for the listed drug may be entitled to a period of non-patent market exclusivity, during which the FDA cannot approve an ANDA.  If the listed drug is a new chemical entity ("NCE"), the FDA may not accept an ANDA for a bioequivalent product for up to five years following approval of the NDA for the NCE.  If the listed drug is not a new chemical entity but the holder of the NDA conducted clinical trials essential to approval of the NDA or a supplement thereto, the FDA may not approve an ANDA for a bioequivalent product before expiration of three years.  Certain other periods of exclusivity may be available if the listed drug is indicated for treatment of a rare disease or is studied for pediatric indications.

· Section 505(b)(2)  New Drug Applications:   For a drug that is identical to a previously approved drug, a prospective manufacturer need not go through the full NDA procedure.  Instead, it may demonstrate safety and efficacy by relying on published literature and reports where at least some of information required for approval comes from studies not conducted by or for the applicant and for which the applicant has not obtained a right of reference.  The Hatch-Waxman Act permits the applicant to rely upon certain preclinical or clinical studies conducted for an approved product.  The manufacturer must also submit, if the FDA so requires, bioavailability or bioequivalence data illustrating that the generic drug formulation produces the same effects, within an acceptable range, as the previously approved innovator drug.  Because published literature to support the safety and efficacy of post-1962 drugs may not be available, this procedure is of limited utility to generic drug manufacturers and the resulting approved product will not be interchangeable with the innovator drug as an ANDA drug would be unless bioequivalency testing were undertaken and approved by FDA.  Moreover, the utility of Section 505(b)(2) applications have with the exception of "Grandfathered drugs"  been diminished by the availability of the ANDA process, as described above.

Additionally, certain products, marketed prior to the FDCA may be considered GRASE ("Generally Recognized As Safe and Effective") or Grandfathered.  GRASE products are those "old drugs that do not require prior approval from FDA in order to be marketed because they are generally recognized as safe and effective based on published scientific literature."  Similarly, Grandfathered products are those which "entered the market before the passage of the 1938 act or the 1962 amendments to the act."  Under the grandfather clause, such a product is exempted from the "effectiveness requirements [of the act] if its composition and labeling have not changed since 1962 and if, on the day before the 1962 amendments became effective, it was (1) used or sold commercially in the United States, (2) not a new drug as defined by the act at that time, and (3) not covered by an effective application.  Please see additional discussion regarding GRASE and Grandfathered products in Item 1A.  Risk Factors and Item 7 Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

Manufacturing cGMP Requirements

Among the requirements for a new drug approval, a company's manufacturing methods must conform to FDA cGMP regulations before a facility may be used to manufacture a product.  The FDA performs pre-approval inspections to assess a company's manufacturing methods as part of a new drug approval process.  These inspections include reviews of procedures and operations used in the manufacture and testing of our products to assess compliance with application regulations.  The cGMP regulations must be followed at all times during which the approved drug is manufactured and the manufacturing facilities are subject to periodic inspections by the FDA and other authorities.  FDA's cGMP regulations require among other things, quality control and quality assurance as well as the corresponding maintenance of records and documentation.  In complying with the standards set forth in the cGMP regulations, we must continue to expend time, money, and effort in the areas of production and quality control to ensure full technical compliance.

Failure to comply with statutory and regulatory requirements subject a manufacturer to possible legal or regulatory action, including but not limited to, the seizure or recall of non-complying drug products, injunctions, consent decrees placing significant restrictions on or suspending manufacturing operations, and/or civil and criminal penalties.  Adverse experiences with the product must be reported to the FDA and could result in the imposition of market restriction through labeling changes or in product removal.  Product approvals may be withdrawn if compliance with regulatory requirements is not maintained or if problems concerning safety or efficacy of the product occur following approval.

Other Regulatory Requirements

With respect to post-market product advertising and promotion, the FDA imposes a number of complex regulations on entities that advertise and promote pharmaceuticals, which include, among others, standards for direct-to-consumer advertising, off-label promotion, industry-sponsored scientific and educational activities, and promotional activities involving the internet.  The FDA has very broad enforcement authority under the FDCA, and failure to abide by these regulations can result in penalties, including the issuance of a warning letter directing entities to correct deviations from FDA standards, a requirement that future advertising and promotional materials be pre-cleared by the FDA, and state and/or federal civil and criminal investigations and prosecutions.

We are also subject to various laws and regulations regarding laboratory practices, the experimental use of animals, and the use and disposal of hazardous or potentially hazardous substances in connection with our research.  In each of these areas, as above, the FDA has broad regulatory and enforcement powers, including the ability to levy fines and civil penalties, suspend or delay issuance of approvals, seize or recall products, and withdraw approvals.  Any one or a combination of FDA regulatory or enforcement actions against the Company could have a material adverse effect on our financial results.

DEA Regulation

We maintain registrations with the DEA that enable us to receive, manufacture, store, and distribute controlled substances in connection with our operations.  Controlled substances are those drugs that appear on one of five schedules promulgated and administered by the DEA under the CSA.  The CSA governs, among other things, the distribution, recordkeeping, handling, security, and disposal of controlled substances.  We are subject to periodic and ongoing inspections by the DEA and similar state drug enforcement authorities to assess our ongoing compliance with the DEA's regulations.  Any failure to comply with these regulations could lead to a variety of sanctions, including the revocation or a denial of renewal of our DEA registration, injunctions, or civil or criminal penalties.

Fraud and Abuse Laws

Because of the significant federal funding involved in Medicare and Medicaid, Congress and state legislatures have enacted, and actively enforce, a number of laws whose purpose is to eliminate fraud and abuse in federal health care programs.  Our business is subject to compliance with these laws, such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, Dodd-Frank, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA").

Anti-Kickback Statutes, Sunshine Act, and Federal False Claims Act

The federal health care programs fraud and abuse law (sometimes referred to as the "Anti-Kickback Statue") prohibits persons from knowingly and willfully soliciting, offering, receiving, or providing remuneration, directly or indirectly, in exchange for or to induce either the referral of an individual, or the furnishing or arranging for a good or service, for which payment may be made under a federal health care program such as Medicare or Medicaid.  The definition of "remuneration" has been broadly interpreted to include anything of value, including for example gifts, certain discounts, the furnishing of free supplies, equipment or services, credit arrangements, payment of cash and waivers of payments.  Several courts have interpreted the statute's intent requirement to mean that if any one purpose of an arrangement involving remuneration is to induce referrals of federal health care covered business, the statute has been violated.  Penalties for violations include criminal penalties and civil sanctions such as fines, imprisonment, and possible exclusion from Medicare, Medicaid, and other federal health care programs.  In addition some kickback allegations have been claimed to violate the Federal False Claims Act, discussed in more detail below.

The Anti-Kickback Statute is broad and prohibits many arrangements and practices that are lawful in businesses outside of the health care industry.  Recognizing that the Anti-Kickback Statute is broad and may technically prohibit many innocuous or beneficial arrangements, Congress authorized the Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ("OIG") to issue a series of regulations, known as "safe harbors."  These safe harbors, issued by the OIG beginning in July 1991, set forth provisions that, if all their applicable requirements are met, will assure health care providers and other parties that they will not be prosecuted under the Anti-Kickback Statute.  The failure of a transaction or arrangement to fit precisely within one or more safe harbors does not necessarily mean that it is illegal or that prosecution will be pursued.  However, conduct and business arrangements that do not fully satisfy each applicable safe harbor may result in increased scrutiny by government enforcement authorities such as OIG.

Many states have adopted laws similar to the Anti-Kickback Statute.  Some of these state prohibitions apply to referral of patients for health care items or services reimbursed by any source, not only the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

Government officials have focused their enforcement efforts on marketing of health care services and products, among other activities, and recently have brought cases against companies, and certain sales, marketing, and executive personnel, for allegedly offering unlawful inducements to potential or existing customers in an attempt to procure their business.

Another development affecting the health care industry is the increased use of the Federal False Claims Act ("FFCA"), and in particular, action brought pursuant to the FFCA's "Whistleblower" or "Qui Tam" provisions.  The FFCA imposes liability on any person or entity who, among other things, knowingly presents, or causes to be presented, a false or fraudulent claim for payment by a federal health care program.  The qui tam provisions of the FFCA allow a private individual to bring actions on behalf of the federal government alleging that the defendant has submitted a false claim to the federal government, and to share in any monetary recovery.  In recent years, the number of suits brought against health care providers by private individuals has increased dramatically.  In addition, various states have enacted false claims law analogous to the FFCA, although many of these state laws apply where a claim is submitted to any third-party payer and not merely a federal health care program.

When an entity is determined to have violated the FFCA, it may be required to pay up to three times the actual damages sustained by the government, plus civil penalties of $6 thousand to $11 thousand per separate false claim.  Liability arises, primarily, when an entity knowingly submits or causes another to submit a false claim for reimbursement to the federal government.  The federal government has used the FFCA to assert liability on the basis of inadequate care, kickbacks, and other improper referrals, and improper use of Medicare numbers when detailing the provider of services, in addition to the more predictable allegations as to misrepresentations with respect to the services rendered.  In addition, the federal government has prosecuted companies under the FFCA in connection with off-label promotion of products.  Our future activities relating to the reporting of wholesale or estimated retail prices of our products, the reporting of discount and rebate information and other information affecting federal, state, and third-party reimbursement of our products, and the sale and marketing of our products may be subject to scrutiny under these laws.  We are unable to predict whether we will be subject to actions under the FFCA or a similar state law, or the impact of such actions.  However, the costs of defending such claims, as well as any sanctions imposed, could significantly affect our financial performance.

Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended ("FCPA"), was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons and entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business.  Specifically, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA prohibit the bribery of government officials.

HIPAA and Other Fraud and Privacy Regulations

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") created two new federal crimes: health care fraud and false statements relating to health care matters.  The HIPAA health care fraud statute prohibits, among other things, knowing and willfully executing, or attempting to execute, a scheme to defraud any health care benefit program, including private payors.  A violation of this statute is a felony and may result in fines, imprisonment, and/or exclusion from government-sponsored programs.  The HIPAA false statements statute prohibits knowingly and willfully falsifying, concealing, or covering up a material fact or making any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation in connection with the delivery of or payment for health care benefits, items, or services.  A violation of this statute is a felony and may result in fines and/or imprisonment.

Pricing

In the United States, our sales are dependent upon the availability of coverage and reimbursement for our products from third-party payors, including federal and state programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, and private organizations such as commercial health insurance and managed care companies.  Such third-party payors increasingly challenge the price of medical products and services and instituting cost containment measures to control or significantly influence the purchase of medical products and services.

Over the past several years, the rising costs of providing health care services has triggered legislation to make certain changes to the way in which pharmaceuticals are covered and reimbursed, particularly by government programs.  For instance, recent federal legislation and regulations have created a voluntary prescription drug benefit, Medicare Part D, revised the formula used to reimburse health care providers and physicians under Part B and imposed significant revisions to the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program.  These changes have resulted in, and may continue to result in, coverage and reimbursement restrictions and increased rebate obligations by manufacturers.  In addition, there continue to be legislative and regulatory proposals at the federal and state levels directed at containing or lowering the cost of health care.  Examples of how limits on drug coverage and reimbursement in the United States may cause reduced payments for drugs in the future include:

· changing Medicare reimbursement methodologies;

· revising drug rebate calculations under the Medicaid program;

· reforming drug importation laws;

· fluctuating decisions on which drugs to include in formularies; and

· requiring pre-approval of coverage for new or innovative drug therapies.

We cannot predict the likelihood or pace of such additional changes or whether there will be significant legislative or regulatory reform impacting our products, nor can we predict with precision what effect such governmental measures would have if they were ultimately enacted into law.  However, in general, we believe that legislative and regulatory reform activity likely will continue.

Other Applicable Laws

We are also subject to federal, state and local laws of general applicability, including laws regulating working conditions and the storage, transportation, or discharge of items that may be considered hazardous substances, hazardous waste, or environmental contaminants.  We monitor our compliance with laws and we believe we are in substantial compliance with all regulatory bodies.

As a publicly-traded company, we are also subject to significant regulations and laws, included in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.  Since its enactment, we have developed and instituted a corporate compliance program based on what we believe are the current best practices and we continue to update the program in response to newly implemented or changing regulatory requirements.

Employees

As of June 30, 2013, we had 356 employees.

Securities and Exchange Act Reports

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

We materially rely on an uninterrupted supply of finished products from JSP for a majority of our sales.  If we were to experience an interruption of that supply, our operating results would suffer.

Approximately 47% of our fiscal year 2013 net sales are of distributed products, primarily manufactured by JSP.  Two of these products are Levothyroxine Sodium and Digoxin, which accounted for 38% and 8%, respectively, of our Fiscal 2013 net sales, and 41% and 9%, respectively, of our net sales for Fiscal 2012.  If the supply of these products is interrupted in any way by any form of temporary or permanent business interruption to JSP, including but not limited to fire or other naturally-occurring, damaging event to their physical plant and/or equipment, condemnation of their facility, legislative or regulatory cease and desist declaration regarding their operations, FDA action, and any interruption in their source of API for their products, our operating results could be materially adversely affected.  We do not have, at this time, a second source for these products.  On August 19, 2013 the Company reached an agreement with JSP to extend the term of the initial agreement.  Refer to Note 22 "Subsequent Events" for more information.

The generic pharmaceutical industry is highly competitive.

We face strong competition in our generic product business.  Revenues and gross profit derived from the sales of generic pharmaceutical products tend to follow a pattern based on certain regulatory and competitive factors.  As patents for brand name products and related exclusivity periods expire or fall under patent challenges, the first generic manufacturer to receive regulatory approval for generic equivalents of such products is generally able to achieve significant market penetration.  As competing off-patent manufacturers receive regulatory approvals on similar products or as brand manufacturers launch generic versions of such products (for which no separate regulatory approval is required), market share, revenues and gross profit typically decline, in some cases dramatically.  Accordingly, the level of market share, revenue and gross profit attributable to a particular generic product is normally related to the number of competitors in that product's market and the timing of that product's regulatory approval and launch, in relation to competing approvals and launches.  Consequently, we must continue to develop and introduce new products in a timely and cost-effective manner to maintain our revenues and gross margins.

Extensive industry regulation has had, and will continue to have, a significant impact on our business, especially our product development, manufacturing and distribution capabilities.

All pharmaceutical companies, including Lannett, are subject to extensive, complex, costly and evolving regulation by the federal government, including the FDA and in the case of controlled drugs, the DEA, and state government agencies.  The FDCA, the CSA and other federal statutes and regulations govern or influence the development, testing, manufacturing, packing, labeling, storing, record keeping, safety, approval, advertising, promotion, sale and distribution of our products.

The process for obtaining governmental approval to manufacture and market pharmaceutical products is rigorous, time-consuming and costly, and we cannot predict the extent to which we may be affected by legislative and regulatory developments.  We are dependent on receiving FDA and other governmental or third-party approvals prior to manufacturing, marketing and shipping our products.  The FDA approval process for a particular product candidate can take several years and requires us to dedicate substantial resources to securing approvals, and we may not be able to obtain regulatory approval for our product candidates in a timely manner, or at all.  In order to obtain approval for our generic product candidates, we must demonstrate that our drug product is bioequivalent to a drug previously approved by the FDA through the new drug approval process, known as an innovator drug.  Bioequivalency may be demonstrated in vivo or in vitro by comparing the generic product candidate to the innovator drug product in dosage form, strength, route of administration, quality, dissolution performance characteristics, and intended use.  The FDA may not agree that the bioequivalence studies we submit in the ANDA applications for our generic drug products are adequate to support approval.  If it determines that an ANDA application is not adequate to support approval, the FDA could deny our application or request additional information, including clinical trials, which could delay approval of the product and impair our ability to compete with other versions of the generic drug product.

Consequently, there is always the chance that we will not obtain FDA or other necessary approvals, or that the rate, timing and cost of such approvals, will adversely affect our product introduction plans or results of operations.  We carry inventories of certain product(s) in anticipation of launch, and if such product(s) are not subsequently launched, we may be required to write-off the related inventory.  Furthermore, the FDA also has the authority to revoke drug approvals previously granted and remove these products from the market for a variety of reasons, including a failure to comply with applicable regulations, the discovery of previously unknown problems with the product, or because the ingredients in the drug are no longer approved by the FDA.

Additionally, certain products, marketed prior to the FDCA may be considered GRASE or Grandfathered.  GRASE products are those "old drugs that do not require prior approval from FDA in order to be marketed because they are generally recognized as safe and effective based on published scientific literature."  Similarly, Grandfathered products are those which "entered the market before the passage of the 1906 Act, 1938 Act or the 1962 amendments to the Act."  Under the Grandfathered drug clause, such a product is exempted from the "effectiveness requirements [of the act] if its composition and labeling have not changed since 1962 and if, on the day before the 1962 amendments became effective, it was (1) used or sold commercially in the United States, (2) not a new drug as defined by the act at that time, and (3) not covered by an effective application."  Recently, the FDA has increased its efforts to force companies to file and seek FDA approval for GRASE or Grandfathered products.  Efforts have included issuing notices to companies currently producing these products to cease its distribution of said products.  Lannett currently manufactures and markets one product that is considered a GRASE or Grandfathered product, C-Topical® Solution.  The FDA is currently undertaking activities to force all companies who manufacture certain GRASE products to file applications and seek approval for these products or remove their products from the market.  As of July 24, 2010, Lannett stopped manufacturing and distributing Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution ("MS") as part of one the FDA's enforcement actions.  Lannett filed a 505(b)(2) New Drug Application ("MS NDA") in February 2010 and was granted FDA approval on the submission in June 2011.  Due to the length of time it took to receive approval on this application, the Company fully reserved its MS inventory as of June 30, 2011.  Additionally, Lannett stopped manufacturing Oxycodone as of August 20, 2012 and stopped marketing the product as of October 4, 2012.  Lannett filed an ANDA in April 2012 and was granted expedited review by the FDA.  The Company expects to have approval from the FDA and resume selling Oxycodone in the near future.

In addition, Lannett, as well as many of our significant suppliers of distributed product and raw materials, are subject to periodic inspection of facilities, procedures and operations and/or the testing of the finished products by the FDA, the DEA and other authorities, which conduct periodic inspections to confirm that pharmaceutical companies are in compliance with all applicable regulations.  The FDA conducts pre-approval and post-approval reviews and plant inspections to determine whether systems and processes are in compliance with cGMP, and other FDA regulations.  Following such inspections, the FDA may issue notices on Form 483 that could cause us or our suppliers to modify certain activities identified during the inspection.  A Form 483 notice is generally issued at the conclusion of a FDA inspection and lists conditions the FDA inspectors believe may violate cGMP or other FDA regulations.  The DEA and comparable state-level agencies also heavily regulate the manufacturing, holding, processing, security, record-keeping, and distribution of drugs that are considered controlled substances.  Some of the pain management products we manufacture contain controlled substances.  The DEA periodically inspects facilities for compliance with its rules and regulations.  If our manufacturing facilities or those of our suppliers fail to comply with applicable regulatory requirements, it could result in regulatory action and additional costs.

Our inability or the inability of our suppliers to comply with applicable FDA and other regulatory requirements can result in, among other things, delays in or denials of new product approvals, warning letters, fines, consent decrees restricting or suspending manufacturing operations, injunctions, civil penalties, recall or seizure of products, total or partial suspension of sales, and/or criminal prosecution.  Any of these or other regulatory actions could materially harm our operating results and financial condition.  Although we have instituted internal compliance programs, if these programs do not meet regulatory agency standards or if compliance is deemed deficient in any significant way, it could materially harm our business .   Additionally, if the FDA were to undertake additional enforcement activities with Lannett's GRASE product, their actions could result in, among other things, removal of some of the product from the market, seizure of the product and total or partial suspension of sales.  Any of these regulatory actions could materially harm our operating results and financial condition.

Our manufacturing operations as well as our suppliers manufacturing operations are subject to licensing by the FDA and/or DEA.  If we or our suppliers are unable to maintain the proper agency licensing arrangements, our operating results would be materially negatively impacted.

All of our manufacturing operations as well as those of our suppliers rely on maintaining active licenses to produce and develop generic drugs.  Specifically, our Cody Labs operations rely on a DEA license to directly import and convert raw concentrated poppy straw into several APIs or dosage forms.  This license is granted for a one year period and must be renewed successfully each year in order for us to maintain Cody's current operations and allow the Company to continue to work towards becoming a fully integrated narcotics supplier.  If the Company is unable to successfully renew its FDA and/or DEA licenses, the financial results of Lannett would be negatively impacted.

If we are unable to successfully develop or commercialize new products, our operating results will suffer.

Our future results of operations will depend to a significant extent upon our ability to successfully commercialize new generic products in a timely manner.  There are numerous difficulties in developing and commercializing new products, including:

· developing, testing and manufacturing products in compliance with regulatory standards in a timely manner;

· receiving requisite regulatory approvals for such products in a timely manner;

· the availability, on commercially reasonable terms, of raw materials, including APIs and other key ingredients;

· developing and commercializing a new product is time consuming, costly and subject to numerous factors that may delay or prevent the successful commercialization of new products; and

· commercializing generic products may be substantially delayed by the listing with the FDA of patents that have the effect of potentially delaying approval of the off-patent product by up to 30 months, and in some cases, such patents have been issued and listed with the FDA after the key chemical patent on the brand drug product has expired or been litigated, causing additional delays in obtaining approval.

As a result of these and other difficulties, products currently in development by Lannett may or may not receive the regulatory approvals necessary for marketing.  If any of our products, when developed and approved, cannot be successfully or timely commercialized, our operating results could be adversely affected.  We cannot guarantee that any investment we make in developing products will be recouped, even if we are successful in commercializing those products.

The loss of key personnel could cause our business to suffer.

The success of our present and future operations will depend, to a significant extent, upon the experience, abilities and continued services of our key personnel.  If we lose the services of our key personnel, or if they are unable to devote sufficient attention to our operations for any other reason, our business may be significantly impaired.  If the employment of any of our current key personnel is terminated, we cannot assure you that we will be able to attract and replace the employee with the same caliber of key personnel.  As such, we have entered into employment agreements with all of our senior executive officers in order to help retain these key individuals.

Our gross profit may fluctuate from period to period depending upon our product sales mix, our product pricing and our costs to manufacture or purchase products.

Our future results of operations, financial condition and cash flows depend to a significant extent upon our product sales mix.  Our sales of certain products that we manufacture tend to create higher gross margins than do the products we purchase and resell.  As a result, our sales mix will significantly impact our gross profit from period to period.

Factors that may cause our sales mix to vary include:

· the amount of new product introductions;

· marketing exclusivity, if any, which may be obtained on certain new products;

· the level of competition in the marketplace for certain products;

· the availability of raw materials and finished products from our suppliers; and

· the scope and outcome of governmental regulatory action that may involve us.

The profitability of our product sales is also dependent upon the prices we are able to charge for our products, the costs to purchase products from third parties, and our ability to manufacture our products in a cost effective manner.

If brand pharmaceutical companies are successful in limiting the use of generics through their legislative and regulatory efforts, our sales of generic products may suffer.

Many brand pharmaceutical companies increasingly have used state and federal legislative and regulatory means to delay generic competition.  These efforts have included:

· pursuing new patents for existing products which may be granted just before the expiration of one patent which could extend patent protection for additional years or otherwise delay the launch of generics;

· using the Citizen Petition process to request amendments to FDA standards;

· seeking changes to U.S. Pharmacopoeia, an organization which publishes industry recognized compendia of drug standards;

· attaching patent extension amendments to non-related federal legislation; and

· engaging in state-by-state initiatives to enact legislation that restricts the substitution of some generic drugs, which could have an impact on products that we are developing.

If brand pharmaceutical companies are successful in limiting the use of generic products through these or other means, our sales may decline.  If we experience a material decline in product sales, our results of operations, financial condition and cash flows will suffer.

Third parties may claim that we infringe their proprietary rights and may prevent us from manufacturing and selling some of our products.

The manufacture, use and sale of new products that are the subject of conflicting patent rights have been the subject of substantial litigation in the pharmaceutical industry.  These lawsuits relate to the validity and infringement of patents or proprietary rights of third parties.  We may have to defend against charges that we violated patents or proprietary rights of third parties.  This is especially true in the case of generic products on which the patent covering the brand product is expiring, an area where infringement litigation is prevalent, and in the case of new brand products where a competitor has obtained patents for similar products.  Litigation may be costly and time-consuming, and could divert the attention of our management and technical personnel.  In addition, if we infringe on the rights of others, we could lose our right to develop or manufacture products or could be required to pay monetary damages or royalties to license proprietary rights from third parties.  Although the parties to patent and intellectual property disputes in the pharmaceutical industry have often settled their disputes through licensing or similar arrangements, the costs associated with these arrangements may be substantial and could include ongoing royalties.  Furthermore, we cannot be certain that the necessary licenses would be available to us on terms we believe to be acceptable.  As a result, an adverse determination in a judicial or administrative proceeding or failure to obtain necessary licenses could prevent us from manufacturing and selling a number of our products, which could harm our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

If we are unable to obtain sufficient supplies from key suppliers that in some cases may be the only source of finished products or raw materials, our ability to deliver our products to the market may be impeded.

We are required to identify the supplier(s) of all the raw materials for our products in our applications with the FDA.  To the extent practicable, we attempt to identify more than one supplier in each drug application.  However, some products and raw materials are available only from a single source and, in some of our drug applications, only one supplier of products and raw materials has been identified, even in instances where multiple sources exist.  To the extent any difficulties experienced by our suppliers cannot be resolved within a reasonable time, and at reasonable cost, or if raw materials for a particular product become unavailable from an approved supplier and we are required to qualify a new supplier with the FDA, our profit margins and market share for the affected product could decrease, and our development and sales and marketing efforts could be delayed.

Our policies regarding returns, allowances and chargebacks, and marketing programs adopted by wholesalers may reduce our revenues in future fiscal periods.

Based on industry practice, generic drug manufacturers have liberal return policies and have been willing to give customers post-sale inventory allowances.  Under these arrangements, from time to time, we give our customers credits on our generic products that our customers hold in inventory after we have decreased the market prices of the same generic products due to competitive pricing.  Therefore, if new competitors enter the marketplace and significantly lower the prices of any of their competing products, we would likely reduce the price of our product.  As a result, we would be obligated to provide credits to our customers who are then holding inventories of such products, which could reduce sales revenue and gross margin for the period the credit is provided.  Like our competitors, we also give credits for chargebacks to wholesalers that have contracts with us for their sales to hospitals, group purchasing organizations, pharmacies or other customers.  A chargeback is the difference between the price the wholesaler pays and the price that the wholesaler's end-customer pays for a product.  Although we establish reserves based on our prior experience and our best estimates of the impact that these policies may have in subsequent periods, we cannot ensure that our reserves are adequate or that actual product returns, allowances and chargebacks will not exceed our estimates.

Health care initiatives and other third-party payor cost-containment pressures could cause us to sell our products at lower prices, resulting in decreased revenues.

Some of our products are purchased or reimbursed by state and federal government authorities, private health insurers and other organizations, such as health maintenance organizations, or HMOs, and managed care organizations, or MCOs.  Third-party payors increasingly challenge pharmaceutical product pricing.  There also continues to be a trend toward managed health care in the United States.  Pricing pressures by third-party payors and the growth of organizations such as HMOs and MCOs could result in lower prices and a reduction in demand for our products.

In addition, legislative and regulatory proposals and enactments to reform health care and government insurance programs could significantly influence the manner in which pharmaceutical products and medical devices are prescribed and purchased.  We expect there will continue to be federal and state laws and/or regulations, proposed and implemented, that could limit the amounts that federal and state governments will pay for health care products and services.  The extent to which future legislation or regulations, if any, relating to the health care industry or third-party coverage and reimbursement may be enacted or what effect such legislation or regulation would have on our business remains uncertain.  For example, the American Recovery and Reinstatement Act of 2009, also known as the stimulus package, includes $1.1 billion in funding to study the comparative effectiveness of health care treatments and strategies.  The stimulus package funding is expected to be used for, among other things, to conduct, support or synthesize research that compares and evaluates the risk and benefits, clinical outcomes, effectiveness and appropriateness of products.  Although Congress has indicated that this funding is intended for improvement in quality of health care, it remains unclear how the research will impact coverage, reimbursement or other third-party payor policies.  Such measures or other health care system reforms that are adopted could have a material adverse effect on our industry generally and our ability to successfully commercialize our products or could limit or eliminate our spending on development projects and affect our ultimate profitability.

We may need to change our business practices to comply with changes to fraud and abuse laws.

We are subject to various federal and state laws pertaining to health care fraud and abuse, including the Anti-Kickback Statute, which apply to our sales and marketing practices and our relationships with physicians.  At the federal level, the Anti-Kickback Statute prohibits any person or entity from knowingly and willfully soliciting, receiving, offering, or paying any remuneration, including a bribe, kickback, or rebate, directly or indirectly, in return for or to induce the referral of patients for items or services covered by federal health care programs, or the furnishing, recommending, or arranging for products or services covered by federal health care programs.  Federal health care programs have been defined to include plans and programs that provide health benefits funded by the federal government, including Medicare and Medicaid, among others.  The definition of "remuneration" has been broadly interpreted to include anything of value, including, for example, gifts, discounts, the furnishing of supplies or equipment, credit arrangements, payments of cash, and waivers of payments.  Several courts have interpreted the federal Anti-Kickback Statute's intent requirement to mean that if even one purpose in an arrangement involving remuneration is to induce referrals or otherwise generate business involving goods or services reimbursed in whole or in part under federal health care programs, the statute has been violated.  The federal government has issued regulations, commonly known as safe harbors that set forth certain provisions which, if fully met, will assure parties that they will not be prosecuted under the federal Anti-Kickback Statute.  The failure of a transaction or arrangement to fit within a specific safe harbor does not necessarily mean that the transaction or arrangement will be illegal or that prosecution under the federal Anti-Kickback Statute will be pursued, but such transactions or arrangements face an increased risk of scrutiny by government enforcement authorities and an ongoing risk of prosecution.  If our sales and marketing practices or our relationships with physicians (such as physicians serving on our Scientific Advisory Board) are considered by federal or state enforcement authorities to be knowingly and willfully soliciting, receiving, offering, or providing any remuneration in exchange for arranging for or recommending our products and services, and such activities do not fit within a safe harbor, then these arrangements could be challenged under the federal Anti-Kickback Statute.

Table of Contents

If our operations are found to be in violation of the federal Anti-Kickback Statute we may be subject to civil and criminal penalties including fines of up to $25 thousand per violation, civil monetary penalties of up to $50 thousand per violation, assessments of up to three times the amount of the prohibited remuneration, imprisonment, and exclusion from participating in the federal health care programs.  In addition, HIPAA and its implementing regulations created two new federal crimes: health care fraud and false statements relating to health care matters.  The HIPAA health care fraud statute prohibits, among other things, knowingly and willfully executing, or attempting to execute, a scheme to defraud any health care benefit program, including private payors.  A violation of this statue is a felony and may result in fines, imprisonment and/or exclusion from government-sponsored programs.  The HIPAA false statements statute prohibits, among other things, knowingly and willfully falsifying, concealing or covering up a material fact or making any materially false, fictitious or fraudulent statement or representation in connection with the delivery of or payment for health care benefits, items, or services.  A violation of this statute is a felony and may result in fines and/or imprisonment.  A number of states also have anti-fraud and anti-kickback laws similar to the federal Anti-Kickback Statute that prohibit certain direct or indirect payments if such arrangements are designed to induce or encourage the referral of patients or the furnishing of goods or services.  Some states' anti-fraud and anti-kickback laws apply only to goods and services covered by Medicaid.  Other states' anti-fraud and anti-kickback laws apply to all health care goods and services, regardless of whether the source of payment is governmental or private.  Due to the breadth of these laws and the potential for changes in laws, regulations, or administrative or judicial interpretations, we may have to change our business practices or our existing business practices could be challenged as unlawful, which could materially adversely affect our business.

Certain federal and state governmental agencies, including the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, have been investigating issues surrounding pricing information reported by drug manufacturers and used in the calculation of reimbursements as well as sales and marketing practices.  For example, many government and third-party payors, including Medicare and Medicaid, reimburse doctors and others for the purchase of certain pharmaceutical products based on the product's AWP reported by pharmaceutical companies.  While Lannett has only used Suggested Wholesale Prices since 2000, the federal government, certain state agencies, and private payors are investigating and have begun to file court actions related to pharmaceutical companies' reporting practices with respect to AWP, alleging that the practice of reporting prices for pharmaceutical products has resulted in a false and overstated AWP, which in turn is alleged to have improperly inflated the reimbursement paid by Medicare beneficiaries, insurers, state Medicaid programs, medical plans, and others to health care providers who prescribed and administered those products. In addition, some of these same payors are also alleging that companies are not reporting their "best price" to the states under the Medicaid program.  We are not currently subject to any such investigations or actions and having not used AWP pricing since 2000 would not likely become subject to these investigations.

We may become subject to federal and state false claims litigation brought by private individuals and the government.

We are subject to state and federal laws that govern the submission of claims for reimbursement.  The Federal False Claims Act ("FFCA"), also known as Qui Tam, imposes civil liability and criminal fines on individuals or entities that knowingly submit, or cause to be submitted, false or fraudulent claims for payment to the government.  Violations of the FFCA and other similar laws may result in criminal fines, imprisonment, and civil penalties for each false claim submitted and exclusion from federally funded health care programs, including Medicare and Medicaid.  The FFCA also allows private individuals to bring a suit on behalf of the government against an individual or entity for violations of the FFCA.  These suits, also known as Qui Tam actions, may be brought by, with only a few exceptions, any private citizen who has material information of a false claim that has not yet been previously disclosed.  These suits have increased significantly in recent years because the FFCA allows an individual to share in any amounts paid to the federal government in fines or settlement as a result of a successful Qui Tam action.  If our past or present operations are found to be in violation of any of such laws or any other governmental regulations that may apply to us, we may be subject to penalties, including civil and criminal penalties, damages, fines, exclusion from federal health care programs, and/or the curtailment or restructuring of our operations.  Any penalties, damages, fines, curtailment, or restructuring of our operations could adversely affect our ability to operate our business and our financial results, action against us for violation of these laws, even if we successfully defend against them, could cause us to incur significant legal expenses and divert our management's attention from the operation of our business.

Sales of our products may continue to be adversely affected by the continuing consolidation of our distribution network and the concentration of our customer base.

Our principal customers are wholesale drug distributors and major retail drug store chains.  These customers comprise a significant part of the distribution network for pharmaceutical products in the U.S.  This distribution network is continuing to undergo significant consolidation marked by mergers and acquisitions among wholesale distributors and the growth of large retail drug store chains.  As a result, a small number of large wholesale distributors control a significant share of the market, and the number of independent drug stores and small drug store chains has decreased.  We expect that consolidation of drug wholesalers and retailers will increase pricing and other competitive pressures on drug manufacturers, including Lannett.

Our three largest customers accounted for 17%, 12% and 10%, respectively, of our net sales for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013, and 18%, 12% and 11%, respectively, of our net sales for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012.  The loss of any of these customers could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition and our cash flows.  In addition, the Company generally does not enter into long-term supply agreements with its customers that would require them to purchase our products.

The design, development, manufacture and sale of our products involves the risk of product liability claims by consumers and other third parties, and insurance against such potential claims is expensive and may be difficult to obtain.

The design, development, manufacture and sale of our products involve an inherent risk of product liability claims and the associated adverse publicity.  Insurance coverage is expensive and may be difficult to obtain, and may not be available in the future on acceptable terms, or at all.  Although we currently maintain product liability insurance for our products in amounts we believe to be commercially reasonable, if the coverage limits of these insurance policies are not adequate, a claim brought against Lannett, whether covered by insurance or not, could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flows.

Rising insurance costs, as well as the inability to obtain certain insurance coverage for risks faced by Lannett, could negatively impact profitability.

The cost of insurance, including workers compensation, product liability and general liability insurance, has risen in recent years and may increase in the future.  In response, we may increase deductibles and/or decrease certain coverage to mitigate these costs.  These increases, and our increased risk due to increased deductibles and reduced coverage, could have a negative impact on our results of operations, financial condition and cash flows.

Additionally, certain insurance coverage may not be available to Lannett for risks faced by Lannett.  Sometimes the coverage obtained by Lannett for certain risks may not be adequate to fully reimburse the amount of damage that Lannett could possibly sustain.  Should either of these events occur, the lack of insurance to cover the entire cost to the Company would adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.

Significant balances of intangible assets, including product rights acquired, are subject to impairment testing and may result in impairment charges, which would adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.

Our acquired contractual rights to market and distribute products are stated at cost, less accumulated amortization and related impairment charges identified to date.  We determined the initial cost by referring to the original fair value of the assets exchanged.  Future amortization periods for product rights are based on our assessment of various factors impacting estimated useful lives and cash flows of the acquired products.  Such factors include the product's position in its life cycle, the existence or absence of like products in the market, various other competitive and regulatory issues and contractual terms.  Significant changes to any of these factors would require us to perform an additional impairment test on the affected asset and, if evidence of impairment exists, we would be required to take an impairment charge with respect to the asset.  Such a charge would adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.

Federal regulation of arrangements between manufacturers of brand and generic products could adversely affect our business.

As part of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003, companies are now required to file with the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") and the Department of Justice certain types of agreements entered into between brand and generic pharmaceutical companies related to the manufacture, marketing and sale of generic versions of brand drugs.  This new requirement could affect the manner in which generic drug manufacturers resolve intellectual property litigation and other disputes with brand pharmaceutical companies and could result generally in an increase in private-party litigation against pharmaceutical companies or additional investigations or proceedings by the FTC or other governmental authorities.  The impact of this new requirement and the potential private-party lawsuits associated with arrangements between brand name and generic drug manufacturers is uncertain, and could adversely affect our business.

ITEM 2.                DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY

Lannett owns three facilities in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Certain administrative functions, manufacturing and production facilities and our quality control laboratory are located in a 31,000 square foot facility at 9000 State Road Philadelphia, PA.  The second facility consists of 63,000 square feet, and is located within one mile of the State Road facility at 9001 Torresdale Avenue Philadelphia, PA.  Our research laboratory and packaging functions are located at this location.  Additionally, the facility has capacity for additional manufacturing space, if needed.  We also own a building at 13200 Townsend Road Philadelphia, PA consisting of 66,000 square feet on 7.3 acres of land which is used for certain administrative functions, warehouse space, and shipping.  It also has capacity for additional manufacturing space, if needed.

The manufacturing facility of our wholly-owned subsidiary, Cody Labs, consists of a 73,000 square foot structure located on approximately 15.0 acres in Cody, Wyoming.  Cody Labs' manufacturing facility currently has capacity for further expansion, both inside and outside the existing structure.

On August 8, 2013 the Company entered into an agreement to purchase a 196,000 square foot building located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for $5.0 million.  The agreement provides the Company a 90 day inspection period, beginning on August 8, 2013, during which time the Company can perform due diligence inspections.  If the Company determines that the due diligence inspection results are unacceptable, the Company has the sole right to terminate the agreement.  The Company's long-term plans for the facility include consolidating existing facilities and providing space for future expansion.

ITEM 3.                LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

On April 16, 2013, Richard Asherman, the former President of Cody and a member in Realty, filed a complaint in Wyoming state court against the Company and Cody.  At the same time, he also filed an application for a temporary restraining order to enjoin certain operations at Cody, claiming, among other things, that Cody is in violation of certain zoning laws and that Cody is required to increase the level of its property insurance and to secure performance bonds for work being performed at Cody.  Mr. Asherman claims Cody is in breach of his employment agreement and is required to pay him severance under his employment agreement, including 18 months of base salary, vesting of unvested stock options and continuation of benefits.  The Company estimates that the aggregate value of the claimed severance benefits is approximately $350 thousand to $400 thousand.  Mr. Asherman also asserts that the Company is in breach of the Realty Operating Agreement and, among other requested remedies, he seeks to have Lannett (i) pay him 50% of the value of 1.66 acres of land that Realty agreed to donate to the City of Cody, Wyoming, which land was previously valued at approximately $380 thousand, and (ii) acquire Mr. Asherman's interest in Realty for an unspecified price.  Alternatively, Mr. Asherman seeks to dissolve Realty.

The Company and Cody opposed the application for a temporary restraining order and, following a hearing on April 18, 2013, the Court denied the relief to Mr. Asherman.  The Company strongly disputes the claims in the complaint, including that the Company is required to acquire Mr. Asherman's interest in Realty.  Specifically, the Company asserts that it is and has always been in compliance with local zoning laws, which permits the operation of a pharmaceutical facility, that Mr. Asherman, in fact, previously represented this to Lannett.  It also asserts that the City of Cody has never taken the position or advised Cody that the Cody facility was operating in violation of the local zoning laws.  The Company also asserts that Cody has in place a sufficient level of property insurance coverage.  Cody also strongly disputes the claims in the complaint, including that it is required to pay Mr. Asherman severance, as Cody terminated Mr. Asherman for cause, following the issuance of a letter of reprimand.  If Mr. Asherman were successful on his claim for breach of his employment agreement, he would be entitled to his contractual severance - 18 months' salary plus the vesting of certain stock options and continuation of benefits.  The amount the Company would be required to pay to Mr. Asherman if he were successful in compelling the buyout of his interest in Realty is dependent upon the value of the real property owned by Realty.  If a buyout were required, Realty would become wholly owned by the Company.  At this time the Company is unable to reasonably estimate a range or aggregate dollar amount of Mr. Asherman's claims or of any potential loss to the Company.  The Company does not believe that the ultimate resolution of the matter will have a significant impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations.

Sales of drugs for cardiovascular treatment increased by $7.7 million primarily due to increased volumes related to a product used for the treatment of hypertension which commenced shipping at the end of December 2011.  Sales of drugs used for the treatment of thyroid deficiency increased by $7.1 million, primarily as a result of both volume and price increases on key products within this medical indication.  Increased sales of drugs used for gout treatment, resulting from additional volume, also contributed an additional $4.6 million to the overall increase in sales.  Sales of drugs in the antibiotic medical indication increased by $2.4 million primarily as a result of increased volumes on selected key products within the medical indication.  Sales of drugs used for the treatment of glaucoma increased by $2.2 million mainly due to price increases on key products within the medical indication.  Sales related to pain management products were relatively flat during Fiscal 2013 compared to Fiscal 2012.  Additional pain management sales as a result of a price increase on the Company's C-Topical® Solution product were offset by lower volumes shipped of Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution and Oxycodone HCL Oral Solution.  Lower volumes of Oxycodone resulted from FDA enforcement actions against market participants which caused the Company and others to voluntarily exit the market by October 4, 2012.  The Company is awaiting FDA approval for this product and anticipates resuming product sales in the near future.

The Company sells its products to customers in various distribution channels.  The table below presents the Company's net sales to each distribution channel.

The sales to wholesaler/distributor increased primarily as a result of increased net sales in a variety of products including the gout and thyroid deficiency medical indications as discussed above.  Retail chain sales increased primarily as a result of increased sales for the treatment of thyroid deficiency medical indication as discussed above.  Mail-order pharmacy sales increased primarily as a result of increased sales of products in the cardiovascular and thyroid deficiency medical indications.

Cost of sales increased to $93.6 million in Fiscal 2013 from $84.0 million in Fiscal 2012.  The increase primarily reflected the impact of the 23% increase in net sales, partially offset by changes in the mix of products sold, as well as increased manufacturing efficiencies.

Amortization expense included in cost of sales above primarily relates to the JSP Distribution Agreement.  There are approximately nine months remaining on the JSP Distribution Agreement.  The Company will incur amortization expense of approximately $1.3 million in Fiscal 2014 related to the existing agreement.

Gross profit margins for Fiscal 2013 and Fiscal 2012 were 38% and 32%, respectively.  Gross profit percentage increased primarily due to a change in the mix of products sold as discussed above, in addition to improved manufacturing efficiencies.  While the Company is continuously striving to keep product costs low, there can be no guarantee that profit margins will stay consistent in future periods.  Pricing pressure from competitors and costs of producing or purchasing new drugs may also fluctuate in future periods.  Changes in the future sales product mix may also occur.

Research and development expenses increased 37% to $16.3 million in Fiscal 2013 from $11.8 million in Fiscal 2012.  The increase is primarily due to increased costs related to biostudies as a result of the timing of milestone achievements and third party laboratory service costs for products in development.  Additional compensation-related costs incurred in Fiscal 2013 as compared to Fiscal 2012 also contributed to the increase.  The Company expenses all production costs as R&D until the drug is approved by the FDA.  R&D expenses may fluctuate from period to period, based on R&D plans for submission to the FDA.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 11% to $22.4 million in Fiscal 2013 from $20.2 million in Fiscal 2012.  The increase is primarily due to additional compensation-related costs, partially offset by a decrease in legal expenses in Fiscal 2013, as compared to Fiscal 2012.  While the Company is focused on controlling costs, increases in personnel costs may have an ongoing and longer lasting impact on the administrative cost structure.  Other costs are being incurred to facilitate improvements in the Company's infrastructure.  These costs are expected to be temporary investments in the future of the Company and may not continue at the same level.

During the first quarter of Fiscal 2013, the Company entered into a favorable settlement agreement related to litigation the Company had been involved in since January 2010.  As a result of the agreement the Company recorded a gain in the amount of $1.3 million.  As of June 30, 2013, the Company had recorded all amounts related to the agreement.

In Fiscal 2013 interest expense totaled $251 thousand compared to $273 thousand in Fiscal 2012.  Interest and dividend income totaling $116 thousand was lower compared with $142 thousand in Fiscal 2012.  The Company also recorded a gain on investment securities during Fiscal 2013 totaling $699 thousand compared to a loss on investment securities totaling $103 thousand in Fiscal 2012.

The Company recorded income tax expense totaling $7.3 million in Fiscal 2013 compared to an income tax expense totaling $2.6 million in Fiscal 2012.  The effective tax rate for Fiscal 2013 was 35.3% compared to 39.3% for Fiscal 2012.  The effective tax rate for Fiscal 2013 was lower compared to Fiscal 2012 due primarily to the impact of nondeductible incentive stock option compensation expense relative to pretax income for Fiscal 2012 compared to Fiscal 2013.  An increase in disqualifying dispositions of incentive stock options in Fiscal 2013, as compared to Fiscal 2012, provided additional benefits.  The overall decrease was partially offset by the effects of a Pennsylvania tax law change which lowered the Company's apportionment factor within the state.  The impact of this change caused the Company to reduce its deferred tax assets thereby increasing the effective tax rate by 1.1%.

At June 30, 2013, the Company had recognized a net deferred tax asset of $12.9 million.  The net deferred tax asset is net of a valuation allowance of $2.1 million that is primarily related to the Cody notes receivable impairment incurred in conjunction with the acquisition of Cody Labs.  The Company has provided for the valuation allowance related to the notes receivable impairment as this benefit will be realized only upon the disposition of Cody Labs.  As the Company has no current plans to dispose of its holdings in Cody, a full valuation allowance has been established.  The Company expects the remaining net deferred tax assets to be fully realizable based on the Company's history and future expectations of generating sufficient taxable income.

Sales of drugs used for pain management increased by $6.1 million for Fiscal 2012 compared to Fiscal 2011 due mainly to a price increase as well as additional volume of C-Topical® Solution shipped to wholesale distributors.  The Company also commenced shipments of Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution in the first quarter of Fiscal 2012 based on its June 2011 FDA approval which contributed to the overall increase in pain management sales.  Partially offsetting these increases was a decrease in the volume of Oxycodone sold during Fiscal 2012.  Sales of drugs for cardiovascular treatment increased by approximately $5.6 million compared to Fiscal 2011 mainly due to a recently approved product for the treatment of hypertension which commenced shipping at the end of December 2011 partially offset by a competitive price reduction for another cardiovascular product during the third quarter of Fiscal 2011 in order to retain one of our major customers.  Sales of drugs used in the treatment of thyroid deficiency increased by approximately $3.8 million for Fiscal 2012 compared to Fiscal 2011 primarily as a result of increased sales volume to one of our major retail customers, partially offset by a decrease in price related to Medicare Part D coverage gap rebates totaling approximately $1.8 million.  Sales of drugs used for anti-psychosis treatment increased by $1.3 million during Fiscal 2012 mainly due to the Loxapine product launch.  Additional sales can also be attributed to drugs used for the treatment of glaucoma which accounted for an increase in net sales of $1.1 million for Fiscal 2012 compared to Fiscal 2011.  The overall increase in sales was partially offset by a decrease in sales of drugs used for the treatment of migraines by $2.7 million for Fiscal 2012 compared to Fiscal 2011 primarily as a result of decreased volumes to both chain drug stores and wholesale distributors.  Sales of prescription vitamins decreased by $1.8 million due to the settlement agreement reached with KV on December 15, 2010 which required the Company to cease selling products covered by the licensed patents.

The sales to wholesaler/distributor increased primarily as a result of the increase in sales of pain management products discussed above, partially offset by a decrease in demand for migraine products for which the Company is no longer the primary supplier.  The sales to retail chains decreased due to the discontinuation of sales of prescription vitamins, lower volumes of drugs used for the treatment of migraines, in addition to a Medicare Part D coverage gap rebate totaling approximately $1.8 million related to sales of drugs used for the treatment of thyroid deficiency.  Mail-order pharmacy sales increased primarily as a result of increased sales due to a recently approved product for the treatment of hypertension which commenced shipping in January 2012.

Cost of sales increased slightly to $84.0 million in Fiscal 2012 from $83.5 million in Fiscal 2011.  The increase reflected the impact of the 15% increase in sales as well as a change in the mix of products sold, partially offset by manufacturing efficiencies.  Cost of sales for Fiscal 2011 included additional inventory reserves totaling $1.7 million related to Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution and the reversal of royalty expense totaling $618 thousand as a result of the settlement agreement reached with KV in December 2010.

Gross profit margins for Fiscal 2012 and Fiscal 2011 were 32% and 22%, respectively.  Gross profit percentage increased due to a change in the mix of products sold as discussed above, in addition to manufacturing efficiencies.  Gross profit margins in Fiscal 2011 were negatively impacted by additional inventory reserves totaling $1.7 million related to Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution partially offset by the reversal of royalty expense totaling $618 thousand as a result of the settlement agreement reached with KV in December 2010.  Pricing pressure from competitors and costs of producing or purchasing new drugs may also fluctuate in the future.  Changes in the future sales product mix may also occur.  These changes may affect the gross profit percentage in future periods.

Research and development expenses increased 38% to $11.8 million in Fiscal 2012 from $8.6 million in Fiscal 2011.  The increase is primarily due to compensation-related costs incurred during Fiscal 2012 but not incurred in Fiscal 2011, in addition to increased internal research and development activities partially offset by a decrease in costs related to biostudies as a result of the timing of milestone achievements for costs of products in development.  The Company expenses all production costs as R&D until the drug is approved by the FDA.  R&D expenses may fluctuate from period to period, based on R&D plans for submission to the FDA.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 27% to $20.2 million in Fiscal 2012 from $15.9 million in Fiscal 2011.  The increase is primarily due to compensation-related costs incurred during Fiscal 2012 but not incurred in Fiscal 2011, in addition to an increase in outsourced sales and marketing expenses.  Fiscal 2011 also includes the reversal of the remaining Fiscal 2010 accrued bonuses totaling $1.4 million, of which $1.0 million was included in SG&A.  While the Company is focused on controlling costs, increases in personnel costs may have an ongoing and longer lasting impact on the administrative cost structure.

Other costs are being incurred to facilitate improvements in the Company's infrastructure.  These costs are expected to be temporary investments in the future of the Company and may not continue at the same level.

Interest expense increased to $273 thousand in Fiscal 2012 from $214 thousand in Fiscal 2011, due to higher average levels of long-term debt outstanding during Fiscal 2012.  Interest and dividend income increased to $142 thousand in Fiscal 2012 from $91 thousand in Fiscal 2011 due to higher interest earned on larger average investment securities balances throughout Fiscal 2012.  The Company recorded a loss on investment securities during Fiscal 2012 totaling $103 thousand compared to a gain on investment securities totaling $206 thousand in Fiscal 2011.

The Company recorded income tax expense totaling $2.6 million in Fiscal 2012 compared to an income tax benefit totaling $461 thousand in Fiscal 2011.  The effective tax rate for Fiscal 2012 was 39.3% compared to 65.8% for Fiscal 2011.  The effective tax rate for Fiscal 2012 includes the impact of nondeductible incentive stock option compensation expense relative to pretax income for Fiscal 2012 partially offset by the impact of income tax credits.  The effective tax rate for Fiscal 2012 was lower compared to Fiscal 2011 due primarily to the impact in Fiscal 2011 of income tax credits and the reversal of a portion of our liability for unrecognized tax benefits totaling $264 thousand related to a settlement with the IRS.  These increases were partially offset by the effect of nondeductible incentive stock option compensation expenses relative to the pretax income for Fiscal 2011.

At June 30, 2012, the Company has recognized a net deferred tax asset of $13.9 million.  The net deferred tax asset is net of a valuation allowance of $2.1 million that is primarily related to the Cody notes receivable impairment incurred in conjunction with the acquisition of Cody Labs.  The Company has provided for the valuation allowance related to the notes receivable impairment as this benefit will be realized only upon the disposition of Cody Labs.  As the Company has no current plans to dispose of its holdings in Cody, a full valuation allowance has been established.  The Company expects the remaining net deferred tax assets to be fully realizable based on the Company's history and future expectations of generating sufficient taxable income.

The Company reported a net income attributable to Lannett of $3.9 million for Fiscal 2012, or $0.14 basic and diluted earnings per share, compared to a net loss attributable to Lannett of $277 thousand for Fiscal 2011, or $0.01 basic and diluted loss per share.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash Flow

The Company has historically financed its operations with cash flow generated from operations, supplemented with borrowings from various government agencies and financial institutions.  At June 30, 2013, working capital was $83.0 million as compared to $66.1 million at June 30, 2012, an increase of $16.9 million.  Current product portfolio sales and well as sales related to future product approvals are anticipated to continue to generate positive cash flow from operations.

Net cash from operating activities of $26.5 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013 reflected net income of $13.4 million after adjustments for non-cash items of $7.4 million, as well as cash provided by changes in operating assets and liabilities of $5.7 million.  In comparison, net cash from operating activities of $11.1 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 reflected net income of $4.0 million after adjustments for non-cash items of $9.1 million, as well as cash used by changes in operating assets and liabilities of $2.0 million.

Significant changes in operating assets and liabilities from June 30, 2012 to June 30, 2013 are comprised of:

· A decrease in accounts receivable of $173 thousand mainly due to an increase in total revenue-related reserves, partially offset by increased sales in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013 compared to the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2012.  The Company's days sales outstanding ("DSO"), based on gross sales and gross accounts receivable, for Fiscal 2013 was 61 days.  The level of DSO at June 30, 2013 is comparable to the Company's expectation that DSO will be in the 60 to 70 day range based on 60 day payment terms for most customers.

· A decrease in income taxes receivable and an increase in income taxes payable totaling $2.5 million.  The amount is mainly the result of a federal tax refund received in the amount of $2.2 million as well as estimated tax payments related to expected taxable income for Fiscal 2013.

· An increase in inventories of $5.5 million primarily due to the fulfillment of customer orders and inventory on hand related to new product approvals.

· An increase in accounts payable of $4.7 million due to the timing of payments at the end of Fiscal 2013.

· An increase in accrued payroll and payroll related costs of $3.7 million primarily related to accrued incentive compensation costs in Fiscal 2013, partially offset by Fiscal 2013 payments of incentive compensation accrued during Fiscal 2012.

Significant changes in operating assets and liabilities from June 30, 2011 to June 30, 2012 are comprised of:

· An increase in accounts receivable of $6.3 million as a result of increased sales in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2011.  The increase was partially offset by an increase in the reserve for rebates as a result of increased sales to customers who participate in rebate programs, the timing of credits taken by customers, as well as an increase in the reserve for chargebacks due primarily to an increase in inventory levels at wholesale distribution centers.  The Company's days sales outstanding ("DSO"), based on gross sales and gross accounts receivable, for Fiscal 2012 was 61 days.  The level of DSO at June 30, 2012 is comparable to the Company's expectation that DSO will be in the 60 to 70 day range based on 60 day payment terms for most customers.

· An increase in accrued expenses totaling $1.2 million due primarily to an additional rebate program the Company became obligated to participate in under Medicare Part D.

· A decrease in income taxes receivable of $1.5 million primarily as a result of Fiscal 2012 taxable income.

· An increase in accrued payroll and payroll related costs of $2.2 million primarily related to accrued incentive compensation costs in Fiscal 2012.

Net cash used in investing activities of $8.6 million for the year ended June 30, 2013 is mainly the result of purchases of investment securities of $23.6 million and purchases of property, plant and equipment of $7.8 million, partially offset by proceeds from the sale of investment securities of $22.5 million.  Net cash provided by investing activities of $7.4 million for the year ended June 30, 2012 was primarily related to proceeds from the sale of investment securities of $35.9 million, partially offset by purchases of investment securities of $23.3 million and purchases of property, plant and equipment of $5.2 million.

Net cash provided by financing activities of $2.2 million for Fiscal 2013 was primarily due to proceeds from the issuance of stock pursuant to stock compensation plans of $3.1 million, partially offset by scheduled repayments of debt of $647 thousand and purchases of treasury stock of $440 thousand.  Net cash used in financing activities of $1.1 million for Fiscal 2012 which was primarily due to scheduled repayments of debt of $661 thousand and purchases of treasury stock of $722 thousand, partially offset by proceeds from the issuance of stock pursuant to stock compensation plans of $272 thousand.

The Company has entered into agreements with various government agencies and financial institutions to provide additional cash to help finance the Company's various capital investments and potential strategic opportunities.  These borrowing arrangements as of June 30, 2013 are as follows:

Credit Facilities

The Company had a $3.0 million line of credit from Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. ("Wells Fargo") that was scheduled to expire on April 30, 2013 and bears an interest rate of one month LIBOR plus 2.00%.  The line was extended for three months, with equivalent terms, and expired on July 31, 2013.  The interest rate at June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012 was 2.19% and 2.25%, respectively.  Availability under the line of credit is reduced by outstanding letters of credit.  As of June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012, the Company had $3.0 million of availability under the line of credit.  The availability fee on the unused balance of the line of credit is 0.375%.  The line of credit was collateralized by the working capital assets of the Company.  As of June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012, the Company was in compliance with the financial covenants under the agreement.

The Company financed $1.3 million through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority ("PIDA").  The Company is required to make equal payments each month for 180 months starting February 1, 2006 with interest of 2.75% per annum.  The PIDA Loan has $696 thousand outstanding as of June 30, 2013 with $84 thousand currently due.

In April 1999, the Company entered into a loan agreement with a governmental authority, the Philadelphia Authority for Industrial Development (the "Authority" or "PAID"), to finance future construction and growth projects of the Company.  The Authority issued $3.7 million in tax-exempt variable rate demand and fixed rate revenue bonds to provide the funds to finance such growth projects pursuant to a trust indenture ("the Trust Indenture").  A portion of the Company's proceeds from the bonds was used to pay for bond issuance costs of $170 thousand.  The Trust Indenture requires that the Company repay the Authority loan through installment payments beginning in May 2003 and continuing through May 2014, the year the bonds mature.  The bonds bear interest at the floating variable rate determined by the organization responsible for selling the bonds.  The interest rate fluctuates on a weekly basis.  The effective interest rate at June 30, 2013 and 2012 was 0.26% and 0.38%, respectively.  At June 30, 2013, the Company has $150 thousand outstanding and currently due on the Authority loan.  In April 1999, an irrevocable letter of credit of $3.8 million was issued by Wells Fargo.  This letter of credit is renewed annually to secure payment of the outstanding Authority loan balance and a portion of the related accrued interest.  At June 30, 2013, no portion of the letter of credit has been utilized.

The Company negotiated a set of mortgages on its Townsend Road facility with both Wells Fargo and the PIDA.  The Wells Fargo portion of the loan is for $3.1 million, bears a floating interest rate of the one month LIBOR rate plus 2.95%, amortizes over a 15 year term and has an 8 year maturity date.  The effective interest rate at June 30, 2013 and 2012 was 3.14% and 3.20%, respectively.  The PIDA portion of the loan is for $2.0 million, bears an interest rate of 3.75% and matures in 15 years.  Both loans closed and were funded in May 2011.  As of June 30, 2013 and 2012, the Company was in compliance with the financial covenants under the agreements.  At June 30, 2013, the Company has $2.6 million outstanding on the Wells Fargo portion of the loan, of which $204 thousand is classified as currently due.  The PIDA Loan has $1.8 million outstanding as of June 30, 2013 with $109 thousand currently due.

The Company has executed Security Agreements with Wells Fargo, PIDA and Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation ("PIDC") in which the Company has agreed to pledge its working capital, some equipment and its Townsend Road property to collateralize the amounts due.

The Company is the primary beneficiary to a VIE called Realty.  See Note 11 "Consolidation of Variable Interest Entity" for additional description.  The VIE owns land and a building which is being leased to Cody Labs.  A mortgage loan with First National Bank of Cody has been consolidated in the Company's financial statements, along with the related land and building.  The mortgage requires monthly principal and interest payments of $15 thousand.  Effective February 2011, the interest rate was modified from a fixed rate of 7.5% to a floating rate based on the New York Prime Rate with a floor of 4.5% and a ceiling of 9.0%, with payments to be made through April 2022.  As of June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012, the effective rate was 4.5%.  The mortgage is collateralized by the land and building.  As of June 30, 2013, $1.3 million is outstanding under the mortgage loan, of which $123 thousand is classified as currently due with a rate of 4.5%.

We are continuously evaluating the potential for product and company acquisitions as a part of our future growth strategy.  In conjunction with a potential acquisition the Company may utilize current resources or seek additional sources of capital to finance any such acquisition, which could have an impact on future liquidity.

The purchase obligations above are primarily due to the agreement with Jerome Stevens Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("JSP").  If the minimum purchase requirement is not met, JSP has the right to terminate the contract within 60 days of Lannett's failure to meet the requirement.  If JSP terminates the contract, Lannett does not pay any fee, but could lose its exclusive distribution rights in the United States.  If Lannett's management believes that it is not in the Company's best interest to fulfill the minimum purchase requirements, it can also terminate the contract without any penalty.  If either party were to terminate the purchase agreement, there would be a significant impact on the operating cash flows of the Company.  See Note 20 "Material Contracts with Suppliers" and Note 22 "Subsequent Events" to our Consolidated Financial Statements for more information on the terms, conditions and financial impact of the JSP Distribution Agreement.

On August 8, 2013 the Company entered into an agreement to purchase a 196,000 square foot building located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for $5.0 million.  The agreement provides the Company a 90 day inspection period, beginning on August 8, 2013, during which time the Company can perform due diligence inspections.  If the Company determines that the due diligence inspection results are unacceptable, the Company has the sole right to terminate the agreement.  The Company's long-term plans for the facility include consolidating existing facilities and providing space for future expansion.

Research and Development Arrangements

In the normal course of business the Company has entered into certain research and development and other arrangements.  As part of these arrangements the Company has agreed to certain contingent payments which generally become due and payable only upon the achievement of certain developmental, regulatory, commercial and/or other milestones.  In addition, under certain arrangements, we may be required to make royalty payments based on a percentage of future sales, or other metric, for products currently in development in the event that the Company begins to market and sell the product.  Due to the inherent uncertainty related to these developmental, regulatory, commercial and/or other milestones, it is unclear if the Company will ever be required to make such payments.  As such, these contingencies are not reflected in the expected cash requirements for Contractual Obligations in the table above.

Prospects for the Future

Lannett continues to see substantial improvement year over year in many important financial metrics.  Each passing year, our knowledge, skills and talent increase, as the Company learns from its successes as well as its missteps.  The Company is strengthening and building momentum to push to the next level within the generic pharmaceutical industry.  There are several strategic initiatives on which the Company is embarking to continue its growth.

One initiative that is at the core of the Company's strategy is to continue leveraging the asset we acquired in Cody Labs in 2007.  In July 2008, the DEA granted Cody Labs a license to directly import concentrated poppy straw for conversion into opioid-based APIs for use in various dosage forms for pain management.  The value of this license comes from the fact that, to date, only six other companies in the U.S. have been granted this license.  This license, along with Cody Labs' expertise in API development and manufacture allows the Company to perform in a market with high barriers to entry, no foreign competition, and limited domestic competition.  Because of this vertical integration, the Company has direct control of its supply and can avoid increased costs associated with buying APIs from third-party manufacturers, thereby achieving higher margins.  The Company can also leverage this vertical integration not only for direct supply of opioid-based APIs, but also for the manufacture non-opioid-based APIs.

The Company believes that the demand for controlled substance, pain management drugs will continue to grow as the "Baby Boomer" generation ages.  By concentrating additional resources in the development of opioid-based APIs and dosage forms, the Company is well-positioned to take advantage of this opportunity.  The Company is currently vertically integrated on two products with several others in various stages of development.

One product in particular which the Company is working on is a cocaine hydrochloride solution.  This product is being manufactured and marketed under the brand name C-Topical® Solution.  This product is an analgesic topical solution, with vasoconstriction as a side effect, for use primarily by ear, nose and throat doctors during surgical procedures.  This product represents the Company's first foray into the brand market.  Selling brand versus generic products requires a dedicated sales force to detail and educate physicians on the product.  The Company strongly believes that C-Topical®, once the clinical trials are completed and the FDA has granted approval, will be a major contributor to total revenue, with higher than average profit margins as a result of being vertically integrated; both the API and the finished dosage form are manufactured in-house.

Due to the competitive advantage gained by being vertically integrated, in general, and in controlled substance products, in particular, the Company is poised to continue pushing the pace of sales growth in both the controlled substance and generic markets.  The Company's strategic goal is to continue investing in controlled substance product development so that, within five years, 50% of total revenue is derived from controlled substance products which carry with them higher-than-average gross margins.  As the Company continues to invest and focus in process and manufacturing optimization, Cody Labs will continue to be an exciting part of our future.

In addition to focusing on the development and manufacture of opioid-based APIs and dosage forms, the Company has made a strategic decision to develop products, both in-house and with external partners, which require a paragraph four (P-IV) certification when filing the ANDA.  A P-IV certification is required when an ANDA is submitted for a product for which the innovator's patent has not expired.  The certification must state whether the patent on the reference listed drug (RLD) is being challenged on grounds of it being invalid, or if the patent is being circumvented.  This path to product approval represents a major opportunity for generic drug companies because they do not have to wait until a particular patent expires to potentially enter the market.  Secondly, if a company is the first to file a P-IV on a product, and they successfully invalidate or circumvent the patent, the FDA may grant 180 days of market exclusivity.  This allows the generic manufacturer to be the sole competitor to the brand company for six months, during which time it will capture a significant portion of the market from the brand company, albeit at lower prices.

The challenge for generic manufacturers with this strategy is the legal costs involved.  Before a product is selected for development, the Company must perform a thorough review of the existing patents and determine if they are going to try to invalidate the patent or try to circumvent it.  In either case, once the Company submits a P-IV the brand company will have 45 days to respond with a determination on whether they are going to file a suit against the generic company to defend their patent.  A generic company needs to be prepared not only for the time and effort associated with a protracted legal challenge, but the associated fees which can easily reach in excess of several million dollars.  This strategy provides a ‘high risk, high reward' path to product approval.  The Company filed one ANDA with a P-IV certification in Fiscal 2013 and awaits a response from the brand company to learn what the next step will be in the process.  With the right research and analysis performed up front, the Company believes it can target suitable products for which to file a P-IV certification, be successful, and reap the rewards of limited competition.

Another area of focus for the Company is in mergers, acquisitions and other strategic alliances, whether new or continuing.  The Company is party to supply and development agreements with international companies, including Azad Pharma AG and Swiss Caps of Switzerland, Pharma 2B (formerly Pharmaseed) and the GC Group of Israel, as well as certain domestic companies, including JSP, Cerovene and Summit Bioscience.  The Company is currently in negotiations on similar agreements with other companies, and is actively seeking additional strategic partnerships, through which it will market and distribute products manufactured in-house or by third parties.  The Company continues to strengthen and leverage its customer relationships to build market share for such products and increase future revenues and income.

Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of our consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission requires the use of estimates and assumptions.  A listing of the Company's significant accounting policies are detailed in Note 2 "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies."  A subsection of these accounting policies have been identified by management as "Critical Accounting Policies".  Critical accounting policies are those which require management to make estimates using assumptions that were uncertain at the time the estimate was made and for which the use of different assumptions, which reasonably could have been used, could have a material impact on the financial condition or results of operations.

Management has identified the following as "Critical Accounting Policies":  Revenue Recognition, Inventories, Income Taxes, Valuation of Long-Lived Assets, and Share-based Compensation.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue when title and risk of loss have transferred to the customer and provisions for estimates, including rebates, promotional adjustments, price adjustments, returns, chargebacks, and other potential adjustments are reasonably determinable.  The Company also considers all other relevant criteria specified in SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 104, Topic No. 13, "Revenue Recognition", in determining when to recognize revenue.

When revenue is recognized a simultaneous adjustment to revenue is made for chargebacks, rebates, returns, promotional adjustments, price adjustments, known as shelf-stock adjustments, and other potential adjustments.  These provisions are primarily estimated based on historical experience, future expectations, contractual arrangements with wholesalers and indirect customers, and other factors known to management at the time of accrual.  Accruals for provisions are presented in the Consolidated Financial Statements as a reduction to gross sales with the corresponding reserve presented as a reduction to accounts receivable or an increase in accrued expenses.  The reserves presented as a reduction of accounts receivable totaled $17.5 million and $16.3 million at June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  Accrued expenses at June 30, 2013 and 2012 included $1.0 million and $1.4 million, respectively, for certain rebate programs, primarily related to Medicare Part D and Medicaid, and certain sales allowances and other adjustments paid to indirect customers at June 30, 2013 and 2012.

The following table identifies the activity and ending balances of each major category of revenue reserve for fiscal years 2013, 2012 and 2011:

For the years ending June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011, as a percentage of gross sales the provision for chargebacks was 26.4%, 30.6% and 28.1%, the provision for rebates was 9.2%, 9.5% and 8.9%, the provision for returns was 1.7%, 2.1% and 3.5%, and the provision for other adjustments was 4.0%, 3.0% and 4.1%, respectively.

The increase in total reserves was primarily due to an increase in the return reserve, which resulted from increased gross sales and the timing of credits issued.  The total increase was also aided by a small increase in the chargeback reserve.  The increase in the chargeback reserve resulted from increased inventory levels at wholesale distribution centers as a result of increased gross sales, partially offset by lower chargeback rates.  A lower rebate reserve also helped to offset the total increase in reserves due to the timing of credits issued, pricing changes and the purchasing patterns of certain customers.  The activity in the "Other" category for the year ended June 30, 2013 includes shelf-stock, shipping and other sales adjustments including prompt payment discounts.  Historically, we have not recorded any material amounts in the current period related to reversals or additions of prior period reserves. If the Company were to record a material reversal or addition of any prior period reserve amount it would be separately disclosed.

Provisions for chargebacks, rebates, returns and other adjustments require varying degrees of subjectivity.  While rebates generally are based on contractual terms and require less in the way of estimates, chargebacks and returns on the other hand require management to make more subjective assumptions.  Each major category of provision is discussed in detail below:

Chargebacks

The provision for chargebacks is the most significant and complex estimate used in the recognition of revenue.  The Company sells its products directly to wholesale distributors, generic distributors, retail pharmacy chains, and mail-order pharmacies.  The Company also sells its products indirectly to independent pharmacies, managed care organizations, hospitals, nursing homes, and group purchasing organizations, collectively referred to as "indirect customers."  The Company enters into agreements with its indirect customers to establish pricing for certain products.  The indirect customers then independently select a wholesaler from which to purchase the products.  If the price paid by the indirect customers is lower than the price paid by the wholesaler, the Company will provide a credit, called a chargeback, to the wholesaler for the difference between the contractual price with the indirect customers and the wholesaler purchase price.  The provision for chargebacks is based on expected sell-through levels by the Company's wholesale customers to the indirect customers and estimated wholesaler inventory levels.  As sales to the large wholesale customers, such as Cardinal Health, AmerisourceBergen, and McKesson increase (decrease), the reserve for chargebacks will also generally increase (decrease).  However, the size of the increase (decrease) depends on product mix and the amount of sales that end up at indirect customers with which the Company has specific chargeback agreements.  The Company continually monitors the reserve for chargebacks and makes adjustments when management believes that expected chargebacks may differ from the actual chargeback reserve.

Rebates

Rebates are offered to the Company's key chain drug store, distributor and wholesaler customers to promote customer loyalty and increase product sales.  These rebate programs provide customers with rebate credits upon attainment of pre-established volumes or attainment of net sales milestones for a specified period.  Other promotional programs are incentive programs offered to the customers.  Additionally, as a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("PPACA") enacted in the U.S. in March 2010, the Company participates in a new cost-sharing program for certain Medicare Part D beneficiaries designed primarily for the sale of brand drugs and certain generic drugs if their FDA approval was granted under a New Drug Application ("NDA") or 505(b) NDA versus an Abbreviated New Drug Application ("ANDA").  Because our drugs used for the treatment of thyroid deficiency and our Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution product were both approved by the FDA as a 505(b)(2) NDA, they are considered "brand" drugs for purposes of the PPACA.  Drugs purchased under this program during Medicare Part D coverage gap (commonly referred to as the "donut hole") result in additional rebates.  The Company estimates the reserve for rebates and other promotional credit programs based on the specific terms in each agreement when revenue is recognized.  The reserve for rebates increases (decreases) as sales to certain wholesale and retail customers increase (decrease).  However, since these rebate programs are not identical for all customers, the size of the reserve will depend on the mix of sales to customers that are eligible to receive rebates.

Returns

Consistent with industry practice, the Company has a product returns policy that allows customers to return a product within a specified time period prior to and subsequent to the product's expiration date in exchange for a credit to be applied to future purchases.  The Company's policy requires that the customer obtain pre-approval from the Company for any qualifying return.  The Company estimates its provision for returns based on historical experience, changes to business practices, credit terms and any extenuating circumstances known to management.  While historical experience has allowed for reasonable estimations in the past, future returns may or may not follow historical trends.  The Company continually monitors the reserve for returns and makes adjustments when management believes that actual product returns may differ from the established reserve.  Generally, the reserve for returns increases as net sales increase.

Other Adjustments

Other adjustments consist primarily of price adjustments, also known as "shelf-stock adjustments," which are credits issued to reflect decreases or increases in the selling prices of the Company's products.  In the case of a price decrease a credit is given to customers for product remaining in their inventories at the time of the price reduction.  Contractual price protection results in a similar credit in the case of a price increase.  Pricing changes are discretionary decisions made by management to reflect competitive market conditions.  Amounts recorded for estimated shelf-stock adjustments are based upon specified terms with direct customers, estimated changes in market prices, and estimates of inventory held by customers.  The Company regularly monitors these and other factors and evaluates the reserve as additional information becomes available.  Other adjustments also include prompt payment discounts.

Inventories

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market determined by the first-in, first-out method.  Inventories are regularly reviewed and provisions for excess and obsolete inventory are recorded based primarily on current inventory levels and estimated sales forecasts.  During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011 the Company recorded provisions for excess and obsolete inventory of $876 thousand, $1.7 million and $4.6 million, respectively.  The reserve for excess and obsolete inventory at June 30, 2013 and 2012 was $2.0 million and $1.5 million, respectively.

Income Taxes

The Company uses the asset and liability method to account for income taxes as prescribed by ASC 740, income taxes.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities as measured by the enacted tax rates which will be in effect when these differences reverse.  Deferred tax is the result of changes in deferred tax assets and liabilities.  Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are adjusted to recognize the effects of changes in tax laws or enacted tax rates in the period during which they are signed into law.

The Company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position claimed on a tax return only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position.  The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position should be measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement.  The authoritative standards issued by the FASB also provide guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties on income taxes, accounting in interim periods and requires increased disclosures.  The factors used to assess the likelihood of realization are the Company's forecast of future taxable income and available tax planning strategies that could be implemented to realize the net deferred tax assets.  Under ASC 740 Income taxes, a valuation allowance is required when it is more likely than not that all or some portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized through generating sufficient future taxable income.  Failure to achieve forecasted taxable income in applicable tax jurisdictions could affect the ultimate realization of deferred tax assets and could result in an increase in the Company's effective tax rate on future earnings.

The Company's future effective income tax rate is highly reliant on future projections of taxable income, tax legislation, and potential tax planning strategies.  A change in one or all of these factors could materially affect the effective income tax rate of the Company.

For the fiscal years ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011 we recorded a provision (benefit) for income taxes of $7.3 million, $2.6 million and ($461) thousand, respectively.  Effective tax rates for the same periods were 35.3%, 39.3% and 65.8%, respectively.

Valuation of Long-Lived Assets

The Company's long-lived assets primarily consist of property, plant and equipment as well definite-lived intangible assets.  Intangible assets are stated at cost less accumulated amortization.  Amortization is computed on a straight-line basis over the assets' estimated useful lives, generally for periods ranging from 10 to 15 years.  Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation.  Depreciation is computed on a straight-line basis over the assets' estimated useful lives, generally for periods ranging from 5 to 39 years.  The Company continually evaluates the reasonableness of the useful lives of these assets.

Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances ("triggering events") indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable.  The nature and timing of triggering events by their very nature are unpredictable; however management regularly considers the performance of an asset as compared to its expectations, industry events, industry and economic trends, as well as any other relevant information known to management when determining if a triggering event occurred.

If a triggering event is determined to have occurred, the first step in the impairment test is to compare the asset's carrying value to the undiscounted cash flows generated by the asset.  If the carrying value exceeds the undiscounted cash flow of the asset then impairment exists.  An impairment loss is measured as the excess of the asset's carrying value over its fair value, which in most cases is calculated using a discounted cash flow model.  Discounted cash flow models are highly reliant on various assumptions which are considered level 3 inputs, including estimates of future cash flows (including long-term growth rates), discount rates, and the probability of achieving the estimated cash flows.

During the fiscal years ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011, the Company did not identify any triggering events.  As a result no impairment charges were recorded in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.  For the fiscal years ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011, the Company incurred depreciation and amortization expense of $6.2 million, $5.7 million, and $5.0 million, respectively.

Share- based Compensation

Share-based compensation costs are recognized over the vesting period, using a straight-line method,  based on the fair value of the instrument on the date of grant less an estimate for forfeitures.  The Company uses the Black-Scholes valuation model to determine the fair value of stock options and the stock price on the grant date to value restricted stock.  The Black-Scholes valuation model includes various assumptions, including the expected volatility, the expected life of the award, dividend yield, and the risk-free interest rate.  These assumptions involve inherent uncertainties based on market conditions which are generally outside the Company's control.  Changes in these assumptions could have a material impact on share-based compensation costs recognized in the financial statements.

The following table presents the weighted average assumptions used to estimate fair values of the stock options granted during the years ended June 30 and the estimated annual forfeiture rates used to recognize the associated compensation expense:

Expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of the price of our common shares during the historical period equal to the expected term of the option.  The Company uses historical information to estimate the expected term, which represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding.  The risk-free rate for the period equal to the expected life of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.  The forfeiture rate assumption is the estimated annual rate at which unvested awards are expected to be forfeited during the vesting period.  This assumption is based on our historical forfeiture rate.  Periodically, management will assess whether it is necessary to adjust the estimated rate to reflect changes in actual forfeitures or changes in expectations.  Additionally, the expected dividend yield is equal to zero, as the Company has not historically and has no immediate plans to issue a dividend.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2011, the FASB issued authoritative guidance which allows an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  In both options, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income.  This guidance eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity.  This guidance does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income.  This authoritative guidance must be applied retrospectively, and is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011.  In December 2011, the FASB issued an update deferring the effective date for amendments to the presentation of reclassifications of items out of accumulated other comprehensive income.  The adoption of this guidance by the Company on July 1, 2012 did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements as it only required a change in the format of the current presentation.

In July 2012, the FASB issued authoritative guidance which allows an entity the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events and circumstances indicates that it is more likely than not that an indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired.  If, after assessing the totality of events and circumstances, an entity concludes that it is not more likely than not that the indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired, then the entity is not required to take further action.  An entity also has the option to bypass the qualitative assessment for any indefinite-lived intangible asset in any period and proceed directly to performing the quantitative impairment test.  An entity will be able to resume performing the qualitative assessment in any subsequent period.  The amendments are effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012.  Early adoption is permitted, including for annual and interim impairment tests performed as of a date before July 27, 2012, if a public entity's financial statements for the most recent annual or interim period have not yet been issued or, for nonpublic entities, have not yet been made available for issuance.  The Company adopted this guidance effective July 1, 2012.  The adoption of this guidance by the Company did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

In February 2013, the FASB issued authoritative guidance which requires an entity to provide information about the amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component.  In addition, an entity is required to present, either on the face of the statement where net income is presented or in the notes, significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by the respective line items of net income but only if the amount reclassified is required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified to net income in its entirety in the same reporting period.  For other amounts not required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified in their entirety to net income, an entity is required to cross-reference to other disclosures required under U.S. GAAP that provide additional detail about those amounts.  This authoritative guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012.  The adoption of this guidance by the Company did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires the Company's directors, officers, and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of the Company's equity securities to file with the SEC reports of ownership and changes in ownership of common stock and other equity securities of the Company.  Officers, directors and greater-than-10% stockholders are required by SEC regulations to furnish the Company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.

Based solely on review of the copies of such reports furnished to the Company or written representations that no other reports were required, the Company believes that during Fiscal 2013 all filing requirements applicable to its officers, directors and greater-than-10% beneficial owners under Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act were complied with in a timely manner, except for Form 4s related to a grant of restricted stock to Directors on  July 17, 2012; Form 4s related to officers' withholding of shares for taxes pursuant to a restricted stock vesting on October 26, 2012; a Form 4 relating to purchase of common stock by Mr. Taveira on March 14, 2013; and Form 5s for Jeffrey Farber, David Farber and William Farber.

Table of Contents

Potential Payments upon Termination or Change in Control

The following table assumes that the relevant triggering event occurred on June 30, 2013.  The fair market values of share-based compensation (i.e. Stock Options and Restricted Stock) were calculated using the closing price of Lannett Company, Inc. stock ($11.91) on June 28, 2013, which was the last trading day of Fiscal 2013.  The "spread," the difference between the fair market value of Lannett Company's stock on June 28, 2013, and the option exercise price, was used for valuing stock options.

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

Overview of Compensation Program

A fundamental goal of our compensation program is to maximize shareholder value.  In order to accomplish this goal, we must attract and retain talented and capable executives, and we must provide those executives with incentives that motivate and reward them for achieving Lannett's short and longer-term goals.  To this end, our executive compensation is guided by the following key principles:

· Executive compensation should depend upon group and individual performance factors;

· The interests of executives should be closely aligned with those of shareholders through equity-based compensation; and

· Compensation should be appropriate and fair in comparison to the compensation provided to similarly situated executives within the pharmaceutical industry and within other publicly-traded companies similar in market capitalization to Lannett.

Important to our compensation program are the decisions of and guidance from the Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors.  The Compensation Committee (which we refer to, for purposes of this analysis, as "the Committee") is composed entirely of directors who are independent of Lannett under the independence standards established by the NYSE MKT stock exchange, the securities exchange where our common stock is traded.  The Committee operates pursuant to a written charter adopted by the Board.  If you would like to review the Committee's charter, it is available by request from our Chief Financial Officer, at 13200 Townsend Road, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19154 or on our website at www.lannett.com under the section titled "Investor Relations."

The Committee has the authority and responsibility to establish and periodically review our executive compensation principles, described above.  Importantly, the Committee also has sole responsibility for approving the corporate goals and objectives upon which the compensation of the chief executive officer (the "CEO") is based; for evaluating the CEO's performance in light of these goals and objectives; and for determining and approving the CEO's compensation level based on this evaluation, including his equity-based compensation.

The Committee also reviews and approves the recommendations of the CEO with regard to the compensation and benefits of other executive officers and equity grants to non-executive employees.  In accomplishing this responsibility, the Committee meets regularly with the CEO, approves cash and equity incentive objectives of the executive officers and confirms the basis for equity grants recommended for non-executive employees.  The Committee reviews with the CEO the accomplishment of these objectives and approves the base salary and other elements of compensation for the executive officers.  The Committee has full discretion to modify the recommendations of the CEO in the course of its approval of executive officer compensation and equity grants to non-executive employees.

The Committee consults as needed with an outside compensation consulting firm retained by the Committee.  As it makes decisions about executive compensation, the Committee obtains data from its consultant regarding current compensation practices and trends among United States companies in general and comparable generic pharmaceutical companies in particular, and reviews this information with its consultant.  In addition, the Chairman of the Committee is in contact with management outside of Committee meetings regarding matters being considered or expected to be considered by the Committee.  The Committee reviews recommendations from their outside consultant, and makes recommendations to the Board about the compensation of non-employee directors.  During Fiscal Year 2013, Lannett used certain information obtained from its consultant, Radford, an Aon Hewitt Company.

The Lannett 2011 Long-Term Incentive Plan ("2011 LTIP") provides the Company a greater variety of performance-based executive compensation incentive alternatives.  The 2011 LTIP authorizes the Committee to grant both stock and/or cash-based awards through (i) incentive and non-qualified stock options and/or (ii) restricted stock, and/or long-term performance awards to participants.  With respect to the stock options and stock grants, 1,500,000 shares were initially set aside at inception of the plan for stock option grants and/or restricted stock awards.  At the time of an award grant, the Committee will determine the type of award to be made and the specific conditions upon which an award will be granted (i.e. term, vesting, performance criteria, etc.).  The terms of the awards will be based on what the Committee determines is the most effective performance compensation approach to meet the Company's strategic needs.  In conjunction with its responsibilities related to executive compensation, the Committee also oversees the management development process, reviews plans for executive officer succession and performs various other functions.

The individuals who served as Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer during Fiscal 2013, as well as the other individuals included in the Summary Compensation Table on page 51, are referred to as the Named Executive Officers.

Results

In August 2013, the Committee reviewed Lannett's Fiscal 2013 results for purposes of the Fiscal 2013 Bonus Plan ("2013 Bonus Plan"), determining that the objectives for operating profit and other corporate objectives to achieve payments under the plan were met .

Mr.  Bedrosian's objectives were to meet Company growth and EPS targets; increase Company awareness within the investment community; and increase shareholder value.  In addition, Mr. Bedrosian's objectives included identifying and pursuing strategic acquisitions and partnerships.

Mr. Galvan's objectives were to deliver accurate and timely financial reports on a required monthly, quarterly and annual basis and enhance financial performance through the management of receivables, controlling of service and professional fees, and budget management.

Mr. Schreck's objectives were to complete various efficiency enhancement projects at our manufacturing facilities; identify and complete due diligence related to the purchase of a new facility for future expansion; and achieve Company annual operating plan targets.

Mr. Smith's objectives were to exceed company sales goals while limiting rebates, chargebacks and other related sales deductions, increase market share on existing products, and obtain market share on new product launches.

Mr. Sabo's objectives were to maintain continued compliance with DEA and FDA requirements; review and enhance policies and procedures to ensure regulatory compliance; and provide for technical and research capabilities required to ensure a flow of new products.

Mr. Ehlinger's objectives were to streamline our supply chain to ensure a consistent supply of raw materials while limiting inventory obsolescence; improve our technology platform for improved efficiency and data reporting; and identify processes to be automated.

Risk Assessment

The criteria used for the bonus program which includes Company operating and individual performance goals, along with the weighting of each element, were assembled by the Company for our industry and were found to be reasonable for the nature of our business.  The Compensation Committee reviews these criteria and gives final approval to the senior management.

Operating performance ties in directly with shareholder value.  In order to align management and shareholder interests, there is no bonus opportunity for management unless operating performance targets are achieved.  The risk of diluting the Company's operating cash positions through the awarding of excessive bonus awards is controlled by the imposition of an aggregate bonus award limit equal to 20% of Adjusted Operating Profit as defined on page 61.

The achievement of assigned individual goals as part of the bonus plan is subject to review and approval by senior management with the CEO having the final review and approval.  This multi-level process reduces the risk of having goals that are not linked to the overall objectives of the Company and its success.  The awarding of a CEO discretionary portion, currently at 5% of the total of the bonus, also requires the same oversight.  The total impact on bonus payout of these components of the bonus program is significantly less than the operating performance component.  There is no bonus payout unless minimum goals are attained.

We believe our bonus program, along with the other elements of our executive compensation program, provides appropriate rewards and incentives to our executives to achieve our financial, business, and strategic goals.  We also believe the structure and oversight of these programs provides a setting that does not encourage them to take excessive risks in their business decisions.

Market Data and Our Peer Group

In determining FY2013 compensation for the Named Executive Officers, the Committee relied on market data previously provided by its consultants.  This data was gathered from two sources.  The Named Peer Group was comprised of 12 public life science companies that exhibit a comparable business and financial profile to Lannett, as defined by annual revenue, employee size and market value.  The consultants also gathered published survey data from the Radford Global Survey Suite targeting life science companies with between 200 and 450 employees.  To determine competitive market compensation, Survey and Named Peer data were combined (weighted equally) to form a market consensus (where possible).

Fiscal 2013 Compensation Program

The Committee's approach to compensation was intended to focus our executives on accomplishing our short and longer-term objectives, and it had as its ultimate objective sustained growth in shareholder value.  This approach was intended to compensate executives at levels at or near the median levels of compensation offered by other generic pharmaceutical companies similar in size to Lannett and with whom we compete.

In making decisions about the elements of Fiscal 2013 compensation, the Committee not only considered available market information about each element but also considered aggregate compensation for each executive.  Base salary provided core compensation to executives, but it was accompanied by:

· the potential for incentive-based cash compensation based upon our attainment of targeted Fiscal 2013 operating profit and other corporate goals, as well as the achievement of assigned individual goals and objectives,

· various forms of equity compensation,

·       various benefits and perquisites, and

·       the potential for post-termination compensation under certain circumstances.

The table below provides an overview of each element of the Fiscal 2013 compensation program.

Element

Purpose

Base Salary

Pays for competence in the executive role.  An executive's salary level depends on the decision making responsibilities, experience, work performance, achievement of key goals and team building skills of each position, and the relationship to amounts paid to other executives at peer companies.

To provide competitive fixed compensation based on sustained performance in the executive's role and competitive market practice.

Short-Term Incentives

Cash awards for annual achievement of overall corporate objectives, and specific individual goals and objectives.  In Fiscal 2013, objectives for the Officers were tied to Lannett's achievement of operating profit targets, other targeted corporate goals and individual goals and objectives.

To motivate and focus our executive team on the achievement of our annual performance goals.

59


Table of Contents

Long-Term Incentives

Stock options reward sustained stock price appreciation and encourage executive retention during a three-year vesting term and a ten-year option life.

To deliver a balanced long-term incentive portfolio to executives, focusing on (a) share price appreciation, (b) retention, and (c) internal financial objectives.

Restricted stock grants reward sustained stock price appreciation and encourages executive retention during its three-year vesting term.

To align management interests with those of shareholders,

The value of participants' restricted stock increases and decreases according to Lannett's stock price performance during the vesting period and thereafter.

To increase management's potential for stock ownership opportunities (all awards are earned in shares),

To attract and retain excellent management talent, and

To reward growth of the business, increased profitability, and sustained shareholder value.

Benefits and Perquisites

401(k) Plan
Lannett matches contributions to the Plan, at a rate of $.50 on the dollar up to 8% of base salary.

To attract and retain employees and provide security for their health and welfare needs.  We believe that these benefits are reasonable, competitive and consistent with Lannett's overall executive compensation program.

Life Insurance
The coverage amount for executives is one times base compensation up to a limit of $115,000 and premiums paid for coverage above $50,000 are treated as imputed income to the executive. 

Disability Insurance
Short-term and long-term disability insurance to employees which would, in the event of disability, pay an employee 60% of his or her base salary with limits.

Perquisites
The perquisites that are provided complement other compensation vehicles and enable the Company to attract and retain key executives.  Perquisites include automobile allowances in various amounts to key executives.

Post-Termination Pay

For the Chief Executive Officer, the severance plan provides for a payment of three times the sum of base salary plus a pro-rated annual cash bonus for the current year calculated as if all targets and goals are achieved.

To alleviate an executive's concerns about the loss of his or her position without cause.  To allow executives to concentrate on making decisions in the best interests of Lannett (or any successor organization in the event that a change of control is to occur).

For the other Named Executive Officers, the severance plan provides for a payment of eighteen months of base salary plus a pro-rated annual cash bonus for the current year calculated as if all targets and goals are achieved.

The use of the above compensation tools enables Lannett to reinforce its pay-for-performance philosophy as well as to strengthen its ability to attract and retain high-performing executive officers.  The Committee believes that this combination of programs provides an appropriate mix of fixed and variable pay, balances short-term operational performance with long-term shareholder value creation, and encourages executive recruitment and retention in a high-performance culture.

60


Table of Contents

Base Salary

Base salaries are intended to be at or below the 50 th  percentile for Name Executive Officers for similarly situated executives among Peer Group companies.  A number of additional factors are considered, however, in determining base salary, such as the executive's individual performance, his or her experience, competencies, skills, abilities, contribution and tenure, internal compensation consistency, the need to attract new, talented executives, and the Company's overall annual budget.  Base salaries are generally reviewed on an annual basis by the CEO and the Committee.

Short-term Incentives

In February 2013, the Committee approved the 2013 Bonus Plan.  This program allowed executive officers the opportunity to earn cash awards upon the accomplishment of the Fiscal 2013 operating profit goal, other targeted corporate goals and a number of individual objectives.  The relative weighting of these objectives for each executive was sixty percent (60%) for Adjusted Operating Profit (as defined below), thirty-five percent (35%) for meeting assigned individual goals and five percent (5%) based on CEO discretion.  For the CEO, the five percent (5%) discretionary portion will be determined by the Committee.

Based on market data provided by its consultant, and considering the relatively low base salaries of the Named Executive Officers, the Committee formulated potential bonus plan awards which exceeded the 50th percentile among Peer Group companies, expressed as percentages of base salary.  Actual payouts depended upon the degree to which objectives were accomplished as well as the weight accorded to each objective, as described above.

All payouts to the Named Executive Officers under the 2013 Bonus Plan were contingent upon the Committee's review of the degree to which Lannett achieved the 2013 Bonus Plan objectives, and upon the Committee's review and approval of Management's conclusion of the degree to which individual goals and objectives had been achieved.

The 2013 Bonus Plan provides that payout would be limited to 20% of the Adjusted Operating Profit (as defined below by the 2013 Bonus Plan).  As a result, the actual FY2013 bonus payment was limited to 134% of each Named Executive Officer base salary as of June 30, 2013.

Adjusted Operating Profit is defined as Operating Income excluding Bonus Expense.  For purposes of determining achievement of the bonus plan targets, this measure can be adjusted for certain categories of non-recurring items that the Committee believes do not reflect the performance of Lannett's core continuing operations.  In Fiscal 2013 Adjusted Operating Profit included adjustments for stock compensation expense, certain outsourced sales and marketing expenses and a litigation settlement.

As discussed above, each Named Executive Officer's objectives for Fiscal 2013 included Company operating profit targets, achievement of individual goals, and other targeted corporate goals.  The Committee reviewed and approved these targets following discussions with management, a review of our historical results, consideration of the various circumstances facing the Company during Fiscal 2013 and taking into account the expectations of our annual plan.

The 2013 Bonus Plan program provided that the Committee could modify, amend, suspend or terminate the Plan at any time.

Long-term Incentives

The Committee believes that long-term equity incentives are an important part of a complete compensation package because they focus executives on increasing the value of the assets that are entrusted to them by the shareholders, achieving Lannett's long-term goals, aligning the interests of executives with those of shareholders, encouraging sustained stock performance and helping to retain executives.

Equity grants are designed to emphasize particular elements of the Company's immediate and long-term objectives and to retain key executives.  We will refer to these grants collectively as Long Term Incentive Awards (LTIA).  The types of grants available are:

· stock options, becoming exercisable over three years (approximately one-third increments on each anniversary) from the date of the grant and having a total term of ten years, and

· shares of restricted stock, vesting over three years (approximately one-third increments on each anniversary) from the date of grant.

61


Table of Contents

The Committee assesses the appropriate overall value of these equity grants to executives by reviewing survey results and other market data provided by its consultant.  This information includes the value of equity grants made to similarly situated executives among the Peer Group.  The overall value of LTIA grants for each executive is determined by the Committee with input from their consultant.

In determining the overall value of LTIA grants, the Committee also considers the potential value of equity compensation relative to other elements of compensation for each Named Executive Officer.  It likewise assesses the appropriate distribution of equity value among the grant types, as well as the corporate objectives each type of grant is intended to encourage.

Stock Options and Restricted Stock

Stock options and restricted stock granted as part of the LTIA are designed both to reward the achievement of sustained stock price appreciation and to encourage executive retention during a three-year vesting term and, in the case of stock options, a ten-year option life.  Stock option and restricted stock awards are intended to align executives' motivation with shareholders' best interests.  Sustained stock price appreciation is one factor considered in the granting of stock options and restricted stock.  Stock options and restricted stock vest in one-third increments on the first three anniversaries of the date of grant.

Benefits and Perquisites

We provide Named Executive Officers with perquisites and other personal benefits that we believe are reasonable and consistent with our overall compensation program to better enable us to attract and retain superior employees for key positions.  The Committee periodically reviews the levels of perquisites and other personal benefits provided to Named Executive Officers.

Lannett matches contributions to the 401(k) plan on a $0.50 basis up to 8% of the contributing employee's base salary, subject to limitations of the Plan and applicable law.  The Named Executive Officers are also provided with car allowances, for which the taxes are also paid by the Company.

Lannett provides life insurance for executive officers which would, in the event of death, pay $115,000 to designated beneficiaries.  Premiums paid for coverage above $50,000 are treated as imputed income to the executive.  Lannett also provides short-term and long-term disability insurance which would, in the event of disability, pay the executive officer sixty percent (60%) of his base salary up to the plan limits of $2,000 per week for short-term disability and $15,000 per month for long-term disability.  Executive officers participate in other qualified benefit plans, such as medical insurance plans, in the same manner as all other employees.

Attributed costs of the personal benefits available to the Named Executive Officers for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013, are included in column (i) of the Summary Compensation Table on page 51.

Post-Termination Pay

We believe that reasonable severance and change in control benefits are necessary in order to recruit and retain qualified senior executives and are generally required by the competitive recruiting environment within our industry and the marketplace in general.  These severance benefits reflect the fact that it may be difficult for such executives to find comparable employment within a short period of time, and are designed to alleviate an executive's concerns about the loss of his or her position without cause.  We also believe that a change in control arrangement will provide an executive security that will likely reduce the reluctance of an executive to pursue a change in control transaction that could be in the best interests of our shareholders.  Lannett's severance plan is designed to pay severance benefits to an executive for a qualifying separation.  For the Chief Executive Officer, the severance plan provides for a payment of three times the sum of base salary plus a pro-rated annual cash bonus for the current year calculated as if all targets and goals are achieved.  For the other Named Executive Officers, the severance plan provides for a payment of eighteen months of base salary plus a pro-rated annual cash bonus for the current year calculated as if all targets and goals are achieved.

Tax and Accounting Implications

Deductibility of Executive Compensation

Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, precludes the deductibility of an executive officer's compensation that exceeds $1,000,000 per year unless the compensation is paid under a performance-based plan that has been approved by shareholders.  The Committee believes that it is generally preferable to comply with the requirements of Section 162(m) through, for example, the use of our Incentive Plan.  However, to maintain flexibility in compensating executive officers in a manner that attracts, rewards, and retains high quality individuals, the Committee may elect to provide compensation outside of those requirements when it deems appropriate.  The Committee believes that shareholder interests are best served by not restricting the Committee's discretion in this regard, even though such compensation may result in non-deductible compensation expenses to the Company.

62


Table of Contents

Timing of Committee Meetings and Grants; Option and Share Pricing

The Committee shall meet as necessary to fulfill its responsibilities, and the timing of these meetings is generally established during the year.  The Committee holds special meetings from time to time as its workload requires.  Historically, annual grants of equity awards have typically been accomplished at a meeting of the Committee in September of each year.  Individual grants (for example, associated with the hiring of a new executive officer or promotion to an executive officer position) may occur at any time of year.  We expect to coordinate the timing of equity award grants to be made within thirty (30) days of Lannett's earnings release announcement following the completion of the fiscal year.  The exercise price of each stock option and restricted share awarded to our executive officers is the closing price of our common stock on the date of grant.

REPORT OF THE COMPENSATION COMMITTEE

The Compensation Committee has reviewed, discussed and approved the Compensation Discussion and Analysis set forth above with management.  Taking this review and discussion into account, the undersigned Committee members recommended to the Board of Directors that the Compensation Discussion and Analysis be included in the annual report on Form 10-K.

ITEM 13.              CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

The Company had sales of $1.3 million, $757 thousand and $876 thousand during the fiscal years ended June 30, 2013, 2012, and 2011, respectively, to a generic distributor, Auburn Pharmaceutical Company ("Auburn").  Jeffrey Farber, Chairman of the Board and the son of William Farber, Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Directors and principal stockholder of the Company, is the owner of Auburn.  Accounts receivable includes amounts due from Auburn of $200 thousand and $234 thousand at June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  In the Company's opinion, the terms of these transactions were not more favorable to Auburn than would have been to a non-related party.

Lannett Company, Inc. paid a management consultant, who is related to Mr. Bedrosian, $107 thousand in fees and $38 thousand in reimbursable expenses during Fiscal 2013 and $105 thousand in fees and $24 thousand in reimbursable expenses during Fiscal 2012.  This consultant provided management, construction planning, laboratory set up and administrative services in regards to the Company's initial set up of its bio-study laboratory in a foreign country.  It is expected that this consultant will continue to be utilized into fiscal year 2014.  In the Company's opinion, the fee rates paid to this consultant and the expenses reimbursed to him were not more favorable than what would have been paid to a non-related party.

ITEM 14.              PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTANT FEES AND SERVICES

Management's Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Management of Lannett Company Inc. ("the Company") is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting.  Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  The Company's internal control framework was designed to provide the Company's management, and Board of Directors, reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in 1992 Internal Control-Integrated Framework in conducting its assessment as of June 30, 2013 As a result of this assessment, management has concluded that, as of June 30, 2013, the Company's internal control over financial reporting is effective.

The Company's independent registered public accounting firm, Grant Thornton, LLP, has issued its report on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2013.  Grant Thornton, LLP's opinion on the Company's internal control over financial reporting appears on page 74 of this Form 10-K.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of

Lannett Company, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Lannett Company, Inc. (a Delaware corporation) and Subsidiaries (collectively, the Company) as of June 30, 2013 and 2012, and the related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income, changes in stockholders' equity, and cash flows for each of the three fiscal years in the period ended June 30, 2013.  Our audits of the basic consolidated financial statements included the financial statement schedules listed in the index appearing under Item 15.  These financial statements and financial statement schedules are the responsibility of the Company's management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and financial statement schedules based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Lannett Company, Inc. and Subsidiaries as of June 30, 2013 and 2012 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three fiscal years in the period ended June 30, 2013 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.  Also, in our opinion, the related financial statement schedules, when considered in relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein.

We have also audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2013, based on criteria established in 1992 Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), and our report dated September 12, 2013 expressed an unqualified opinion.

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of

Lannett Company, Inc.

We have audited Lannett Company, Inc. and Subsidiaries' (a Delaware Corporation) internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2013, based on criteria established in 1992 Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).  Lannett Company, Inc. and Subsidiaries' management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying Management's Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting .   Our responsibility is to express an opinion on Lannett Company, Inc. and Subsidiaries' internal control over financial reporting based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects.  Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk, and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances.  We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

A company's internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  A company's internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

In our opinion, Lannett Company, Inc. and Subsidiaries maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2013, based on criteria established in 1992 Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by COSO.

We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated financial statements of Lannett Company, Inc. and Subsidiaries, and our report dated September 12, 2013 expressed an unqualified opinion.

LANNETT COMPANY, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1.  The Business And Nature of Operations

Lannett Company, Inc. (a Delaware corporation) and subsidiaries (the "Company" or "Lannett") develop, manufacture, package, market, and distribute solid oral (tablets and capsules), extended release, topical, and oral solution finished dosage forms of drugs, that address a wide range of therapeutic areas.  The Company also manufactures active pharmaceutical ingredients through its Cody Laboratories, Inc. ("Cody Labs") subsidiary, providing a vertical integration benefit.

The Company operates pharmaceutical manufacturing plants in Philadelphia, PA and Cody, WY.  Customers of the Company's pharmaceutical products include generic pharmaceutical distributors, drug wholesalers, chain drug stores, private label distributors, mail-order pharmacies, other pharmaceutical manufacturers, managed care organizations, hospital buying groups, governmental entities and health maintenance organizations.

Note 2.  Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Principles of consolidation

The Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of Lannett Company, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiaries, as well as Cody LCI Realty, LLC ("Realty"), a variable interest entity ("VIE") in which the Company has a 50% ownership interest.  See Note 11 "Consolidation of Variable Interest Entity" for more information.  Noncontrolling interest in Realty is recorded net of tax as net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest.  Additionally, all intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

Reclassifications

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year financial statement presentation.

In particular, the Company now presents substantially all of the revenue-related reserves for each net sales adjustment, previously presented as "Rebates, chargebacks and returns payable" in the current liabilities section of the Consolidated Balance Sheets, as a reduction of "Accounts Receivable" in the current assets section of the Consolidated Balance Sheets.  See Note 3 "Accounts Receivable" for additional information.

The Company also reclassified certain reserve balances related to rebate programs for Medicare Part D, Medicaid and certain sales allowances and other adjustments to indirect customers.  These amounts were previously presented in "Rebates, chargebacks and returns payable" in the current liabilities section of the Consolidated Balance Sheets.  They are now presented as "Accrued Expenses" in the current liabilities section of the Consolidated Balance Sheets.  See Note 2 "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies: Net Sales Adjustments" policy disclosure for additional information.

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Significant estimates and assumptions are required in the determination of revenue recognition and sales discounts for estimated chargebacks, rebates, returns and other adjustments including a provision for the Company's liability under the Medicare Part D program.  Additionally, significant estimates and assumptions are required when determining the fair value of long-lived and indefinite-lived assets, income taxes, contingencies, and share-based compensation.  Because of the inherent subjectivity and complexity involved in these estimates and assumptions, actual results could differ from those estimates.

Foreign currency translation

The Consolidated Financial Statements are presented in U.S. Dollars, the reporting currency of the Company.  The financial statements of the Company's foreign subsidiary are maintained in local currency and translated into U.S. dollars at the end of each reporting period.  Assets and liabilities are translated at period-end exchange rates, while revenues and expenses are translated at average exchange rates during the period.  The adjustments resulting from the use of differing exchange rates are recorded as part of stockholders' equity in accumulated comprehensive income.  Gains and losses resulting from transactions denominated in foreign currencies are recognized in the consolidated statements of operations.

80


Table of Contents

Cash and cash equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturity less than three months at the date of purchase to be cash and cash equivalents.  Cash and cash equivalents are stated at cost, which approximates fair value, and consist of bank and certificates of deposit that are readily convertible into cash.  The Company maintains its cash deposits and cash equivalents at well-known stable financial institutions.  Such amounts frequently exceed insured limits.

Investment securities

The Company's investment securities consist solely of publicly traded equity securities, which are classified as trading investments.  Investment securities are recorded at fair value based on quoted market prices from broker or dealer quotations or transparent pricing sources at the reporting date.  Gains and losses are included in the Consolidated Statements of Operations under Other income (expense).

Allowance for doubtful accounts

The Company continuously monitors collections and payments from its customers and maintains a provision for estimated credit losses.  The Company determines its allowance for doubtful accounts by considering a number of factors, including the length of time balances are past due, the Company's previous loss history, the customer's current ability to pay its obligation to the Company, and the condition of the general economy and the industry as a whole.  The Company writes-off accounts receivable when they are determined to be uncollectible.

Inventories

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market determined by the first-in, first-out method.  Inventories are regularly reviewed and provisions for excess and obsolete inventory are recorded based primarily on current inventory levels and estimated sales forecasts.  During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011 the Company recorded provisions for excess and obsolete inventory of $876 thousand, $1.7 million and $4.6 million, respectively.

Property, Plant and Equipment

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation.  Depreciation is computed on a straight-line basis over the assets' estimated useful lives.  Depreciation expense for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2013, 2012, and 2011 was $4.3 million, $3.9 million and $3.1 million, respectively.

Intangible Assets

Intangible assets are stated at cost less accumulated amortization.  Amortization is computed on a straight-line basis over the assets' estimated useful lives, generally for periods ranging from 10 to 15 years.  The Company continually evaluates the reasonableness of the useful lives of these assets.  The Company has one indefinite-lived intangible asset related to a product ANDA, valued at $149 thousand.  Amortization on this indefinite-lived intangible will begin at such time as the Company begins shipping the product and determines a finite useful life.  Indefinite-lived and definite-lived intangible assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable.

Segment Information - The Company operates one reportable segment, generic pharmaceuticals, as such, the Company aggregates its financial information for all products.  The following table identifies the Company's net sales by medical indication for fiscal years ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011:

At June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012, four customers accounted for 78% and 70%, respectively of the Company's net accounts receivable balances, respectively.  Credit terms are offered to customers based on evaluations of the customers' financial condition and collateral is generally not required.

The Company's primary finished product inventory supplier is Jerome Stevens Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("JSP"), in Bohemia, New York.  Purchases of finished goods inventory from JSP accounted for approximately 60%, 64% and 64% of the Company's inventory purchases in fiscal year 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  See Note 20 "Material Contracts with Suppliers" and Note 22 "Subsequent Events" for more information.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue when title and risk of loss have transferred to the customer and provisions for rebates, promotional adjustments, price adjustments, returns, chargebacks, and other potential adjustments are reasonably determinable.  The Company also considers all other relevant criteria specified in SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 104, Topic No. 13, "Revenue Recognition", in determining when to recognize revenue.

Net Sales Adjustments

When revenue is recognized a simultaneous adjustment to revenue is made for chargebacks, rebates, returns, promotional adjustments, price adjustments, known as shelf-stock adjustments, and other potential adjustments.  These provisions are primarily estimated based on historical experience, future expectations, contractual arrangements with wholesalers and indirect customers, and other factors known to management at the time of accrual.  Accruals for provisions are presented in the Consolidated Financial Statements as a reduction to gross sales with the corresponding reserve presented as a reduction to accounts receivable or an increase in accrued expenses.  The reserves presented as a reduction of accounts receivable totaled $17.5 million and $16.3 million at June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  Accrued expenses at June 30, 2013 and 2012 included $1.0 million and $1.4 million, respectively, for certain rebate programs, primarily related to Medicare Part D and Medicaid, and certain sales allowances and other adjustments paid to indirect customers at June 30, 2013 and 2012.

Cost of Sales

Cost of sales includes all costs related to bringing products to their final selling destination, which includes direct and indirect costs, such as direct material, labor, and overhead expenses.  Additionally, cost of sales includes product royalties, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, freight charges and other shipping and handling expenses.

Research and Development

Research and development costs are expensed as incurred.  Research and Development expenses include costs associated with internal projects as well as costs associated with third-party research and development contracts.

Table of Contents

Valuation of Long-Lived Assets

The Company's long-lived assets primarily consist of property, plant and equipment as well as definite-lived intangible assets.  Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances ("triggering events") indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable.  If a triggering event is determined to have occurred the first step in the impairment test is to compare the asset's carrying value to the undiscounted cash flows generated by the asset.  If the carrying value exceeds the undiscounted cash flow of the asset then impairment exists.  An impairment loss is measured as the excess of the asset's carrying value over its fair value, which in most cases is calculated using a discounted cash flow model.  Discounted cash flow models are highly reliant on various assumptions which are considered Level 3 inputs, including estimates of future cash flows (including long-term growth rates), discount rates, and the probability of achieving the estimated cash flows.

Contingencies

Loss contingencies, including litigation related contingencies, are included in the Consolidated Statements of Operations when the Company concludes that a loss is both probable and reasonably estimable.  Legal fees related to litigation related matters are expensed as incurred and included in the Consolidated Statements of Operations under the Selling, general and administrative line item.

Advertising Costs

The Company expenses advertising costs when incurred.  Advertising expense for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011 was $21 thousand, $52 thousand, and $60 thousand, respectively.

Unearned Grant Funds

The Company records all grant funds received as a liability until the Company fulfills all the requirements of the grant funding program.

Share-based Compensation

Share-based compensation costs are recognized over the vesting period, using a straight-line method, based on the fair value of the instrument on the date of grant less an estimate for forfeitures.  The Company uses the Black-Scholes valuation model to determine the fair value of stock options and the stock price on the grant date to value restricted stock.  The Black-Scholes valuation model includes various assumptions, including the expected volatility, the expected life of the award, dividend yield, and the risk-free interest rate.  These assumptions involve inherent uncertainties based on market conditions which are generally outside the Company's control.  Changes in these assumptions could have a material impact on share-based compensation costs recognized in the financial statements.

Income Taxes

The Company uses the asset and liability method to account for income taxes as prescribed by ASC 740, income taxes.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities as measured by the enacted tax rates which will be in effect when these differences reverse.  Deferred tax is the result of changes in deferred tax assets and liabilities.  Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are adjusted to recognize the effects of changes in tax laws or enacted tax rates in the period during which they are signed into law.

The Company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position claimed on a tax return only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position.  The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position should be measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement.  The authoritative standards issued by the FASB also provide guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties on income taxes, accounting in interim periods and requires increased disclosures.  The factors used to assess the likelihood of realization are the Company's forecast of future taxable income and available tax planning strategies that could be implemented to realize the net deferred tax assets.  Under ASC 740, income taxes, a valuation allowance is required when it is more likely than not that all or some portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized through generating sufficient future taxable income.  Failure to achieve forecasted taxable income in applicable tax jurisdictions could affect the ultimate realization of deferred tax assets and could result in an increase in the Company's effective tax rate on future earnings.

Earnings Per Common Share

Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income attributable to Lannett Company, Inc. common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income attributable to Lannett Company, Inc. common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period increased by the number of additional shares that would have been outstanding related to potentially dilutive securities; Anti-dilutive securities are excluded from the calculation.  These potentially dilutive securities primarily consist of stock options and unvested restricted stock.

Comprehensive Income (Loss)

Comprehensive income includes all changes in equity during a period except those that resulted from investments by or distributions to a company's stockholders.  Other comprehensive income or loss refers to revenues, expenses, gains and losses that are included in comprehensive income, but excluded from net income as these amounts are recorded directly as an adjustment to stockholders' equity.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2011, the FASB issued authoritative guidance which allows an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  In both options, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income.  This guidance eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity.  This guidance does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income.  This authoritative guidance must be applied retrospectively, and is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011.  In December 2011, the FASB issued an update deferring the effective date for amendments to the presentation of reclassifications of items out of accumulated other comprehensive income.  The adoption of this guidance by the Company on July 1, 2012 did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements as it only required a change in the format of the current presentation.

In July 2012, the FASB issued authoritative guidance which allows an entity the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events and circumstances indicates that it is more likely than not that an indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired.  If, after assessing the totality of events and circumstances, an entity concludes that it is not more likely than not that the indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired, then the entity is not required to take further action.  An entity also has the option to bypass the qualitative assessment for any indefinite-lived intangible asset in any period and proceed directly to performing the quantitative impairment test.  An entity will be able to resume performing the qualitative assessment in any subsequent period.  The amendments are effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012.  Early adoption is permitted, including for annual and interim impairment tests performed as of a date before July 27, 2012, if a public entity's financial statements for the most recent annual or interim period have not yet been issued or, for nonpublic entities, have not yet been made available for issuance.  The Company adopted this guidance effective July 1, 2012.  The adoption of this guidance by the Company did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

In February 2013, the FASB issued authoritative guidance which requires an entity to provide information about the amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component.  In addition, an entity is required to present, either on the face of the statement where net income is presented or in the notes, significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by the respective line items of net income but only if the amount reclassified is required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified to net income in its entirety in the same reporting period.  For other amounts not required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified in their entirety to net income, an entity is required to cross-reference to other disclosures required under U.S. GAAP that provide additional detail about those amounts.  This authoritative guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012.  The adoption of this guidance by the Company did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Note 6.  Fair Value Measurements

The Company's financial instruments recorded in the Consolidated Balance Sheets include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, investment securities, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and debt obligations.  Included in cash and cash equivalents are certificates of deposit with maturities less than three months at the date of purchase and money market funds.  The carrying value of certain financial instruments, primarily cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate their estimated fair values based upon the short-term nature of their maturity dates.  The carrying amount of the Company's debt obligations approximates fair value based on current rates available to the Company on similar debt obligations.

The Company follows the authoritative guidance of ASC Topic 820, which clarifies the definition of fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosure requirements.  Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date.  The authoritative guidance also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value.  Observable inputs reflect those inputs which market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability and are derived from independent market data.  Unobservable inputs reflect management's own assumptions related to market data and the market data which market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability.  Unobservable inputs are developed based on the best information available to management at the measurement date.  The hierarchy includes three levels which are described below:

Level 1 - Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the reporting entity can access at the measurement date.

Level 2 - Directly or indirectly observable inputs, other than quoted prices, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; or model-derived valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable.

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are material to the fair value of the asset or liability.  Financial instruments whose values are determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, or similar techniques, as well as instruments for which the determination of fair value requires significant judgment or estimation are examples of Level 3 assets and liabilities.

If the inputs used to measure the financial assets and liabilities fall within more than one level described above, the categorization is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument.

The Company's financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis at June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012, were as follows:

The Company financed $1.3 million through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority ("PIDA").  The Company is required to make equal payments each month for 180 months starting February 1, 2006 with interest of 2.75% per annum.

In April 1999, the Company entered into a loan agreement with a governmental authority, the Philadelphia Authority for Industrial Development (the "Authority" or "PAID"), to finance future construction and growth projects of the Company.  The Authority issued $3.7 million in tax-exempt variable rate demand and fixed rate revenue bonds to provide the funds to finance such growth projects pursuant to a trust indenture ("the Trust Indenture").  A portion of the Company's proceeds from the bonds was used to pay for bond issuance costs of $170 thousand.  The Trust Indenture requires that the Company repay the Authority loan through installment payments beginning in May 2003 and continuing through May 2014, the year the bonds mature.  The bonds bear interest at the floating variable rate determined by the organization responsible for selling the bonds.  The interest rate fluctuates on a weekly basis.  The effective interest rate at June 30, 2013 and 2012 was 0.26% and 0.38%, respectively.

The Company negotiated a set of mortgages on its Townsend Road facility with both Wells Fargo and the PIDA.  The Wells Fargo portion of the loan is for $3.1 million, bears a floating interest rate of the one month LIBOR rate plus 2.95%, amortizes over a 15 year term and has an 8 year maturity date.  The effective interest rate at June 30, 2013 and 2012 was 3.14% and 3.20%, respectively.  The PIDA portion of the loan is for $2.0 million, bears an interest rate of 3.75% and matures in 15 years.  Both loans closed and were funded in May 2011.  As of June 30, 2013 and 2012, the Company was in compliance with the financial covenants under the agreements.

The Company has executed Security Agreements with Wells Fargo, PIDA and Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation ("PIDC") in which the Company has agreed to pledge its working capital, some equipment and its Townsend Road property to collateralize the amounts due.

The Company is the primary beneficiary to a VIE called Realty.  See Note 11 "Consolidation of Variable Interest Entity" for additional description.  The VIE owns land and a building which is being leased to Cody Labs.  A mortgage loan with First National Bank of Cody has been consolidated in the Company's financial statements, along with the related land and building.  The mortgage requires monthly principal and interest payments of $15 thousand.  Effective February 2011, the interest rate was modified from a fixed rate of 7.5% to a floating rate based on the New York Prime Rate with a floor of 4.5% and a ceiling of 9.0%, with payments to be made through April 2022.  As of June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012, the effective rate was 4.5%.  The mortgage is collateralized by the land and building.

Note 11.  Consolidation of Variable Interest Entity

The Company consolidates any VIE for which it is the primary beneficiary.  The liabilities recognized as a result of consolidating a VIE do not represent additional claims on the Company's general assets rather, they represent claims against the specific assets of the consolidated VIE.  Conversely, assets recognized as a result of consolidating a VIE do not represent additional assets that could be used to satisfy claims against our general assets.  Reflected in each of the June 30, 2013 and 2012 Consolidated Balance Sheets are consolidated VIE assets of approximately $1.7 million and $1.8 million, respectively, which are comprised mainly of land and a building.  VIE liabilities consist primarily of a mortgage on that property in the amount of $1.3 million and $1.4 million at June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Realty is the only VIE that is consolidated.  Realty had been consolidated by Cody Labs prior to its acquisition by the Company.  Realty is a 50/50 joint venture with a former officer of Cody Labs.  Its purpose was to acquire the facility used by Cody Labs.  Until the acquisition of Cody in April 2007, the Company had not consolidated the VIE because Cody Labs had been the primary beneficiary of the VIE.  Risk associated with our interest in this VIE is limited to a decline in the value of the land and building as compared to the balance of the mortgage note on that property, up to the Company's 50% ownership share.  Realty owns the land and building, and Cody Labs leases the building and property from Realty for $20 thousand per month.  All intercompany rent expense is eliminated in the Consolidated Financial Statements.

Note 12.  Contingencies

In January 2010, the Company initiated an arbitration proceeding against Olive Healthcare ("Olive") for damages arising out of Olive's delivery of defective soft-gel prenatal vitamin capsules.  The Company sought damages in excess of $3.5 million.  Olive denied liability and filed a counterclaim in February 2010 for breach of contract.  Olive also filed a lawsuit against the Company in Daman, India seeking to enjoin the United States arbitration and claiming damages of $6.8 million for compensatory damages and an additional $6.8 million for loss of business.  The Company engaged Indian counsel and actively defended that suit.  The parties reached a settlement agreement which was signed and executed on August 13, 2012.  The agreement is favorable to Lannett and includes the dismissal with prejudice of all legal proceedings between the Company and Olive in the U.S. and India.  As of June 30, 2013, the Company had recorded all amounts related to the agreement.

On April 16, 2013, Richard Asherman, the former President of Cody and a member in Realty, filed a complaint in Wyoming state court against the Company and Cody.  At the same time, he also filed an application for a temporary restraining order to enjoin certain operations at Cody, claiming, among other things, that Cody is in violation of certain zoning laws and that Cody is required to increase the level of its property insurance and to secure performance bonds for work being performed at Cody.  Mr. Asherman claims Cody is in breach of his employment agreement and is required to pay him severance under his employment agreement, including 18 months of base salary, vesting of unvested stock options and continuation of benefits.  The Company estimates that the aggregate value of the claimed severance benefits is approximately $350 thousand to $400 thousand.  Mr. Asherman also asserts that the Company is in breach of the Realty Operating Agreement and, among other requested remedies, he seeks to have Lannett (i) pay him 50% of the value of 1.66 acres of land that Realty agreed to donate to the City of Cody, Wyoming, which land was previously valued at approximately $380 thousand, and (ii) acquire Mr. Asherman's interest in Realty for an unspecified price.  Alternatively, Mr. Asherman seeks to dissolve Realty.

The Company and Cody opposed the application for a temporary restraining order and, following a hearing on April 18, 2013, the Court denied the relief to Mr. Asherman.  The Company strongly disputes the claims in the complaint, including that the Company is required to acquire Mr. Asherman's interest in Realty.  Specifically, the Company asserts that it is and has always been in compliance with local zoning laws, which permits the operation of a pharmaceutical facility, that Mr. Asherman, in fact, previously represented this to Lannett.  It also asserts that the City of Cody has never taken the position or advised Cody that the Cody facility was operating in violation of the local zoning laws.  The Company also asserts that Cody has in place a sufficient level of property insurance coverage.  Cody also strongly disputes the claims in the complaint, including that it is required to pay Mr. Asherman severance, as Cody terminated Mr. Asherman for cause, following the issuance of a letter of reprimand.  If Mr. Asherman were successful on his claim for breach of his employment agreement, he would be entitled to his contractual severance - 18 months' salary plus the vesting of certain stock options and continuation of benefits.  The amount the Company would be required to pay to Mr. Asherman if he were successful in compelling the buyout of his interest in Realty is dependent upon the value of the real property owned by Realty.  If a buyout were required, Realty would become wholly owned by the Company.  At this time the Company is unable to reasonably estimate a range or aggregate dollar amount of Mr. Asherman's claims or of any potential loss to the Company.  The Company does not believe that the ultimate resolution of the matter will have a significant impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations.

Note 13.  Commitments

Leases

The Company's subsidiary, Cody Labs leases a 73,000 square foot facility in Cody, Wyoming.  This location houses Cody Lab's manufacturing and production facilities.  Cody Labs leases the facility from Realty, a Wyoming limited liability company which is 50% owned by the Company.  See Note 11 "Consolidation of Variable Interest Entity."

Rental and lease expense for the years ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011 was approximately $104 thousand, $108 thousand, and $100 thousand, respectively.

Note 15.  Earnings Per Common Share

A dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per common share is required on the face of the Company's Consolidated Statement of Operations as well as a reconciliation of the computation of basic earnings per common share to diluted earnings per common share.  Basic earnings per common share excludes the dilutive impact of potentially dilutive securities and is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period.  Diluted earnings per common share includes the effect of potential dilution from the exercise of outstanding stock options and unvested restricted stock.  Potentially dilutive securities have been excluded in the weighted average number of common shares used for the calculation of earnings per share in periods of net loss because the effect of such securities would be anti-dilutive.  A reconciliation of the Company's basic and diluted earnings per common share was as follows:

The number of anti-dilutive shares that have been excluded in the computation of diluted earnings per share for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011 were 1.0 million, 2.3 million, and 2.1 million, respectively.

Note 16.  Share-based Compensation

At June 30, 2013, the Company had four share-based employee compensation plans (the "Old Plan," the "2003 Plan," the 2006 Long-term Incentive Plan, or "2006 LTIP" and the 2011 Long-Term Incentive Plan or "2011 LTIP").

At June 30, 2013, there were 2.3 million options outstanding.  Of those, 1.3 million were options issued under the 2006 LTIP, 596 thousand were issued under the 2003 Plan, and 463 thousand under the 2011 Plan.  There are no further shares authorized to be issued under the Old Plan.  Under the 2003 Plan, 1.1 million shares were authorized to be issued, with 222 thousand shares under options having already been exercised under that plan since its inception.  The 2003 Plan expired on February 13, 2013 and continues to exist only to administer outstanding options.  Under the 2006 LTIP, 2.5 million shares were authorized to be issued, with 496 thousand shares under options having already been exercised and 708 thousand shares of restricted stock having already vested under the plan since its inception.  At June 30, 2013, a balance of 32 thousand shares is available in the 2006 LTIP for future issuances.  Under the 2011 LTIP, 1.5 million shares were authorized to be issued.  As of June 30, 2013, 3 thousand shares of restricted stock have vested under the plan, leaving a balance of 1.0 million shares available in the 2011 LTIP for future issuances.

The Company issues share-based compensation awards with a vesting period ranging up to 3 years and a maximum contractual term of 10 years.  The Company issues new shares of stock when stock options are exercised.  As of June 30, 2013, there was $1.4 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested share-based compensation awards granted under the Plans.  That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.9 years.

The following table presents the allocation of share-based compensation costs recognized in the Consolidated Statements of Operations by financial statement line item:

Stock Options

Expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of the price of our common shares during the historical period equal to the expected term of the option.  The Company uses historical information to estimate the expected term, which represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding.  The risk-free rate for the period equal to the expected life of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.  The forfeiture rate assumption is the estimated annual rate at which unvested awards are expected to be forfeited during the vesting period.  This assumption is based on our historical forfeiture rate.  Periodically, management will assess whether it is necessary to adjust the estimated rate to reflect changes in actual forfeitures or changes in expectations.  Additionally, the expected dividend yield is equal to zero, as the Company has not historically and has no immediate plans to issue a dividend.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

In February 2003, the Company's stockholders approved an Employee Stock Purchase Plan ("ESPP").  Employees eligible to participate in the ESPP may purchase shares of the Company's stock at 85% of the lower of the fair market value of the common stock on the first day of the calendar quarter, or the last day of the calendar quarter.  Under the ESPP, employees can authorize the Company to withhold up to 10% of their compensation during any quarterly offering period, subject to certain limitations.  The ESPP was implemented on April 1, 2003 and is qualified under Section 423 of the Internal Revenue Code.  The Board of Directors authorized an aggregate total of 1.1 million shares of the Company's common stock for issuance under the ESPP.  During Fiscal 2013 and 2012, 70 thousand shares and 69 thousand shares were issued under the ESPP, respectively.  As of June 30, 2013, 409 thousand total cumulative shares have been issued under the ESPP.

Note 17.  Employee Benefit Plan

The Company has a defined contribution 401k plan (the "Plan") covering substantially all employees.  Pursuant to the Plan provisions, the Company is required to make matching contributions equal to 50% of each employee's contribution, but not to exceed 4% of the employee's compensation for the Plan year.  Contributions to the Plan during the years ended June 30, 2013, 2012, and 2011 were approximately $603 thousand, $426 thousand, and $440 thousand, respectively.
