Amgen's Third Quarter 2014 Revenues Increased 6 Percent To $5.0 Billion And Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS) Increased 19 Percent To $2.30
Third Quarter 2014 GAAP EPS Were $1.61
2014 Total Revenues and Adjusted EPS Guidance Increased to $19.8-$20.0 Billion and $8.45-$8.55, Respectively

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Oct. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2014. Key results include:

  • Total revenues increased 6 percent to $5,031 million, with 4 percent product sales growth driven by strong performance across the portfolio, particularly Kyprolis® (carfilzomib), Prolia® (denosumab), Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim) and XGEVA® (denosumab). The third quarter of 2013 included a $155 million order for NEUPOGEN® (filgrastim) from the U.S. government.
  • International sales grew 14 percent driven by unit demand across the portfolio.
  • Adjusted EPS grew 19 percent to $2.30, driven by higher revenues and a significant increase in the profitability of Enbrel® (etanercept). Adjusted net income increased 19 percent to $1,769 million.
  • The Company generated $2.6 billion of free cash flow compared with $1.6 billion in the third quarter of 2013.
  • GAAP EPS were $1.61 compared to $1.79 a year ago and GAAP net income was $1,244 million compared to $1,368 million. The third quarter of 2014 was negatively impacted by pre-tax charges of $376 million for the restructuring plan announced earlier in the quarter.

"Our 22 percent adjusted operating income growth reflects strong performance across our business in the third quarter," said Robert A. Bradway, chairman and chief executive officer. "With regulatory submissions for four new products during the quarter, we are at the beginning of an exciting new product cycle. We look forward to describing progress in our long-term growth strategy and opportunities to build additional shareholder value during our Business Review meeting tomorrow."

Product Sales Performance

  • Total product sales increased 4 percent for the third quarter of 2014 versus the third quarter of 2013. The increase was mainly driven by Kyprolis, Prolia, Neulasta and XGEVA.  Growth for the quarter was primarily due to unit demand and, to a lesser extent, price. 
  • Kyprolis sales for the third quarter of 2014 were $94 million, a 21 percent increase quarter-over-quarter, driven by higher unit demand.
  • Prolia sales increased 43 percent year-over-year driven by higher unit demand from share growth.
  • Neulasta sales increased 5 percent year-over-year driven mainly by price. Global NEUPOGEN sales decreased 36 percent year-over-year mainly due to a $155 million order from the U.S. government in the third quarter of 2013. Underlying demand for both products was slightly impacted by competition.
  • XGEVA sales increased 22 percent year-over-year driven by higher unit demand.  XGEVA continues to capture share in a growing market in the face of competition from generic zoledronic acid.
  • Vectibix® (panitumumab) sales increased 29 percent year-over-year driven by higher unit demand across all regions.  In the U.S., Vectibix received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval at the end of the second quarter of 2014 for first-line treatment in combination with FOLFOX for patients with wild-type KRAS metastatic colorectal cancer.
  • EPOGEN® (epoetin alfa) sales increased 5 percent year-over-year driven by price. Unit demand continues to be relatively stable.
  • Aranesp® (darbepoetin alfa) sales increased 6 percent year-over-year driven largely by unit demand in international markets. 
  • ENBREL realized unit growth of 3 percent year-over-year. This partially offset unfavorable changes in inventory resulting in a 3 percent decrease year-over-year in product sales.
  • Sensipar®/Mimpara® (cinacalcet) sales increased 5 percent year-over-year driven primarily by increases in unit demand.
  • Nplate® (romiplostim) increased 12 percent year-over-year driven mainly by higher unit demand and strong market growth across all regions.

Operating Expense, Operating Margin and Tax Rate Analysis, on an Adjusted Basis

  • Cost of Sales margin, excluding the impact of the Puerto Rico excise tax, increased 0.5 points.
  • Research & Development (R&D) expenses increased one percent in the third quarter of 2014 driven by the addition of Onyx programs offset partially by the $50 million upfront payment to Servier for the U.S. rights to ivabradine in the same period in 2013.
  • Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses decreased 16 percent in the third quarter of 2014 driven primarily by the end of the ENBREL profit share, offset partially by the addition of Onyx.
  • Operating Margin improved 6.9 points in the third quarter of 2014 to 46.7 percent driven by higher revenues and lower SG&A expenses.

  • Restructuring charges in the quarter were $376 million.  In July 2014, the Company announced a restructuring plan to invest in continuing innovation and the launch of its new pipeline molecules while improving its cost structure which will result in estimated pre-tax accounting charges in the range of $835-$885 million.  The Company estimates the fourth quarter of 2014 will have related charges of up to $150 million.
  • Tax Rate for the third quarter of 2014 increased due to changes in the geographic mix of earnings and the lapse of the federal R&D credit.  The federal R&D credit has not yet been extended for 2014 and is therefore not reflected in the current quarter.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Discussion

  • The Company generated $2.6 billion of free cash flow in the third quarter of 2014 versus $1.6 billion in the third quarter of 2013.  The increase was driven primarily by higher revenues, the end of the ENBREL profit share, and improvements in working capital.
  • The Company's fourth quarter 2014 dividend of $0.61 per share declared on Oct. 17, 2014, will be paid on Dec. 5, 2014, to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on Nov. 13, 2014.

2014 Guidance

For the full year 2014, the Company expects:

  • Total revenues to be in the range of $19.8 billion to $20.0 billion and adjusted EPS to be in the range of $8.45 to $8.55.
  • Adjusted tax rate to be in the range of 16 percent to 17 percent.  Due to the uncertain timing associated with extension of the R&D credit and other expired tax provisions, the Company is no longer including this benefit in its tax rate guidance.  The guidance still 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 approximately three to four percentage points.
  • Capital expenditures to be approximately $800 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this news release, management has presented its operating results for the third 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, restructuring and 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 third 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 news 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 news 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. Words such as "expect," "anticipate," "outlook," "could," "target," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "estimate," "should," "may," "assume," or "continue," and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward looking statements. Reference is made in particular to forward-looking statements regarding product sales, revenue, expenses, earnings per share, tax rates, clinical trial results, regulatory filings and actions, Company strategy, restructuring charges, staff reductions and facility closures/dispositions and trends. We are providing this information as of the date of this news release and do 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. Our 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. Cost saving initiatives may result in us incurring impairment or other related charges on our assets. We may experience difficulties, delays or unexpected costs and not achieve anticipated cost savings from our recently announced restructuring plans. 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. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the adjustments also included a $99-million charge related to the termination of a supply contract with F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. as a result of 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 2014 adjustments related primarily to non-cash amortization of intangible assets acquired in business combinations. The adjustments in 2013 related primarily to non-cash amortization of intangible assets acquired in prior year business combinations as well as $15 million of transaction costs associated with the Onyx business combination which closed in the fourth quarter of 2013.










(d)

The adjustments related primarily to severance expenses.










(e)

The 2014 adjustments related primarily to various acquisition-related expenses. The 2013 adjustments related to various legal proceedings.










(f)

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 restructuring expense, depends on whether the amounts are deductible in the respective tax jurisdictions 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 and nine months ended September 30, 2014, were 31.5% and 31.0%, respectively, compared with 32.8% and 26.5% for the corresponding periods of the prior year.










(g)

The adjustments in 2014 related to certain prior period items excluded from adjusted earnings. The adjustments in 2013 related to resolving certain non-routine transfer-pricing and acquisition-related matters with tax authorities as well as the impact related to prior period items excluded from adjusted earnings.







(h)

In July 2014, the Internal Revenue Service issued final regulations that required us to recognize an additional year of the non-tax deductible branded prescription drug fee in Q3 2014.
