Amgen's First Quarter 2014 Revenues Increased 7 Percent To $4.5 Billion
2014 Revenue and Adjusted EPS Guidance Reaffirmed

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2014. Key results include:

  • Total revenues increased 7 percent to $4,521 million, with 5 percent product sales growth driven by Kyprolis® (carfilzomib), XGEVA® (denosumab), Prolia® (denosumab) and Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim).  The first quarter includes results for Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Onyx), which was acquired on Oct. 1, 2013.
  • Adjusted operating income increased 18 percent to $1,860 million, driven by a significant increase in the profitability of Enbrel® (etanercept) following the end of the ENBREL profit share in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • The Company generated $1.0 billion of free cash flow, an increase of 9 percent.
  • Adjusted EPS decreased 5 percent to $1.87, due to favorable tax items in the first quarter of 2013.
  • GAAP EPS were $1.40 compared to $1.88 and GAAP operating income was $1,364 million compared to $1,442 million. GAAP EPS and operating income in 2014 include non-cash amortization and other expenses for recent acquisitions.

"Strong underlying demand for our products and growth in adjusted operating income make us confident in our full-year growth outlook," said Robert A. Bradway, chairman & chief executive officer. "We continue to advance our robust late stage pipeline and expect to submit global filings for evolocumab in 2014."

First Quarter 2014 Product Sales Performance

    • Global NEUPOGEN sales decreased 3 percent year-over-year due to lower unit demand.

Operating Expense and Tax Rate Analysis, on an Adjusted Basis

  • Cost of Sales margin improved 0.5 points.
  • Research & Development (R&D) expenses increased 17 percent in the first quarter of 2014, principally attributable to the addition of Onyx programs.
  • Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses decreased 14 percent in the first quarter of 2014 driven primarily by a significant increase in the profitability of ENBREL following the end of the ENBREL profit share, offset partially by the addition of Onyx.

  • Tax Rate for the first quarter of 2014 excludes two significant benefits recognized in the prior year, namely the federal and state tax benefits associated with the resolution of the Company's federal audit for tax years 2007-2009 and the recognition of the full 2012 federal R&D credit in the first quarter of 2013. The federal R&D credit has not yet been extended for 2014 and is therefore not reflected in the current quarter.

2014 Guidance

For the full year 2014, the Company continues to expect:

  • Total revenues to be in the range of $19.2 billion to $19.6 billion and adjusted EPS to be in the range of $7.90 to $8.20. This includes an $800 million incremental operating income contribution due to the end of the ENBREL profit share.
  • Adjusted tax rate to be in the range of 15 percent to 16 percent. This assumes the federal R&D credit will be extended for 2014 and also includes the impact of the foreign tax credit associated with the Puerto Rico excise tax. The Puerto Rico excise tax credit reduces the adjusted rate by three to four percentage points.
  • Capital expenditures to be approximately $800 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, management has presented its operating results for the first quarters of 2014 and 2013 in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and on an adjusted (or non-GAAP) basis. In addition, management has presented its full year 2014 EPS and tax rate guidance in accordance with GAAP and on an adjusted (or non-GAAP) basis. These non-GAAP financial measures are computed by excluding certain items related to acquisitions, cost-savings initiatives and certain other items from the related GAAP financial measures. Management has also presented Free Cash Flow (FCF), which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for the first quarters of 2014 and 2013. FCF is computed by subtracting capital expenditures from operating cash flow, each as determined in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations for these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the press release. 

The Company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to and facilitates additional analysis by investors. The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to enhance an investor's overall understanding of the financial performance and prospects for the future of the Company's core business activities by facilitating comparisons of results of core business operations among current, past and future periods. In addition, the Company believes that excluding the non-cash amortization of intangible assets, including developed product technology rights, acquired in business combinations treats those assets as if the Company had developed them internally in the past, and thus provides a supplemental measure of profitability in which the Company's acquired intellectual property is treated in a comparable manner to its internally developed intellectual property. The Company believes that FCF provides a further measure of the Company's liquidity.

The Company uses the non-GAAP financial measures set forth in the press release in connection with its own budgeting and financial planning. The non-GAAP financial measures are in addition to, not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements
This news release contains forward-looking statements that involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those discussed below and others that can be found in our Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013, and in any subsequent periodic reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K. Amgen is providing this information as of the date of this news release and does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this document as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

No forward-looking statement can be guaranteed and actual results may differ materially from those we project. The Company's results may be affected by our ability to successfully market both new and existing products domestically and internationally, clinical and regulatory developments (domestic or foreign) involving current and future products, sales growth of recently launched products, competition from other products (domestic or foreign), and difficulties or delays in manufacturing our products. In addition, sales of our products are affected by reimbursement policies imposed by third-party payors, including governments, private insurance plans and managed care providers and may be affected by regulatory, clinical and guideline developments and domestic and international trends toward managed care and healthcare cost containment as well as U.S. legislation affecting pharmaceutical pricing and reimbursement. Government and others' regulations and reimbursement policies may affect the development, usage and pricing of our products. Furthermore, our research, testing, pricing, marketing and other operations are subject to extensive regulation by domestic and foreign government regulatory authorities. We or others could identify safety, side effects or manufacturing problems with our products after they are on the market. Our business may be impacted by government investigations, litigation and product liability claims. If we fail to meet the compliance obligations in the corporate integrity agreement between us and the U.S. government, we could become subject to significant sanctions.  Further, while we routinely obtain patents for our products and technology, the protection offered by our patents and patent applications may be challenged, invalidated or circumvented by our competitors.  We depend on third parties for a significant portion of our manufacturing capacity for the supply of certain of our current and future products and limits on supply may constrain sales of certain of our current products and product candidate development. In addition, we compete with other companies with respect to some of our marketed products as well as for the discovery and development of new products. Discovery or identification of new product candidates cannot be guaranteed and movement from concept to product is uncertain; consequently, there can be no guarantee that any particular product candidate will be successful and become a commercial product.  Further, some raw materials, medical devices and component parts for our products are supplied by sole third-party suppliers. Our efforts to integrate the operations of companies we have acquired may not be successful. Our business performance could affect or limit the ability of our Board of Directors to declare a dividend or our ability to pay a dividend or repurchase our common stock.

(a)

The adjustments related primarily to non-cash amortization of intangible assets, including developed product technology rights, acquired in business combinations. The 2014 adjustments also include a $99 million charge related to the closing of an agreement associated with our acquiring the licenses to filgrastim and pegfilgrastim effective January 1, 2014.



(b)

The adjustments related primarily to non-cash amortization of intangible assets acquired in business combinations.



(c)

The adjustments related primarily to severance expenses.



(d)

The 2013 adjustments related primarily to various legal proceedings.



(e)

The tax effect of the adjustments between our GAAP and Adjusted results takes into account the tax treatment and related tax rate(s) that apply to each adjustment in the applicable tax jurisdiction(s). Generally, this results in a tax impact at the U.S. marginal tax rate for certain adjustments, including the majority of amortization of intangible assets, whereas the tax impact of other adjustments, including stock option expense, depends on whether the amounts are deductible in the tax jurisdictions where the expenses are incurred or the asset is located and the applicable tax rate(s) in those jurisdictions. Due to these factors, the effective tax rates for the adjustments to our GAAP income before income taxes, for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, were 26.4% and 28.2%, respectively.



(f)

The adjustments in 2013 related to resolving certain non-routine transfer-pricing and acquisition-related issues with tax authorities.
