Operating Expense, Operating Margin and Tax Rate Analysis

On a GAAP basis:

  • Total Operating Expenses decreased 1 percent in the fourth quarter and were flat for the full year, with all expense categories reflecting savings from our transformation and process improvement efforts. Cost of Sales margin improved by 1.3 percentage points in the fourth quarter and 1.2 percentage points for the full year driven primarily by manufacturing efficiencies. Research & Development (R&D) expenses were flat for the fourth quarter. For the full year, R&D expenses decreased 6 percent driven primarily by lower spending required to support certain later-stage clinical programs and transformation and process improvement efforts, offset partially by external business development activities. Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses decreased 7 percent in the fourth quarter due to the Oct. 31, 2016, expiration of ENBREL residual royalty payments. For the full year, SG&A expenses increased 4 percent driven primarily by investments in new product launches, offset partially by the expiration of ENBREL residual royalty payments. Other expenses increased in the fourth quarter and for the full year as the prior year periods included gains from the sale of assets related to our site closures.
  • Operating Margin improved by 5.8 percentage points in the fourth quarter to 43.9 percent, and 4.3 percentage points for the full year to 44.7 percent.
  • Tax Rate for the fourth quarter increased 9.3 percentage points driven primarily by changes in the geographic mix of earnings and the discrete impact of the enactment of the federal R&D credit in the fourth quarter of 2015. The full year tax rate increased 2.7 percentage points driven by changes in the geographic mix of earnings, offset partially by the benefit of adopting Accounting Standards Update 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting (ASU 2016-09).

On a non-GAAP basis:

  • Total Operating Expenses decreased 2 percent in the fourth quarter and 1 percent for the full year, with all expense categories reflecting savings from our transformation and process improvement efforts. Cost of Sales margin improved by 1.0 percentage points in the fourth quarter and 1.2 percentage points for the full year driven primarily by manufacturing efficiencies. R&D expenses were flat in the fourth quarter. For the full year, R&D expenses decreased 4 percent driven primarily by lower spending required to support certain later-stage clinical programs and transformation and process improvement efforts, offset partially by external business development activities. SG&A expenses decreased 4 percent in the fourth quarter due to the Oct. 31, 2016, expiration of ENBREL residual royalty payments. For the full year, SG&A expenses increased 5 percent driven primarily by investments in new product launches, offset partially by the expiration of ENBREL residual royalty payments.
  • Operating Margin improved by 6.1 percentage points in the fourth quarter to 50.5 percent, and 4.3 percentage points for the year to 52.3 percent.
  • Tax Rate for the fourth quarter increased 7.1 percentage points driven primarily by changes in the geographic mix of earnings and the discrete impact of the enactment of the federal R&D credit in the fourth quarter of 2015. The full year tax rate increased 2.0 percentage points driven by changes in the geographic mix of earnings, offset partially by the benefit of adopting ASU 2016-09.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In this news release, management has presented its operating results for the fourth quarters and full years of 2016 and 2015, in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and on a non-GAAP basis. In addition, management has presented its full year 2017 EPS and tax rate guidance in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis. These non-GAAP financial measures are computed by excluding certain items related to acquisitions, restructuring and certain other items from the related GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations for these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the news release. Management has also presented Free Cash Flow (FCF), which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for the fourth quarters and full years of 2016 and 2015. FCF is computed by subtracting capital expenditures from operating cash flow, each as determined in accordance with GAAP.

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 ongoing business activities by facilitating comparisons of results of ongoing business operations among current, past and future periods.  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 internally to evaluate the performance of the business, including to allocate resources and to evaluate results relative to incentive compensation targets. 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 involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those discussed below and more fully described in the Securities and Exchange Commission reports filed by Amgen, including our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and any subsequent periodic reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K. Unless otherwise noted, 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. Our results may be affected by our ability to successfully market both new and existing products domestically and internationally, clinical and regulatory developments involving current and future products, sales growth of recently launched products, competition from other products including biosimilars, difficulties or delays in manufacturing our products and global economic conditions. In addition, sales of our products are affected by pricing pressure, political and public scrutiny and reimbursement policies imposed by third-party payers, 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. 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. In addition, our business may be impacted by the adoption of new tax legislation or exposure to additional tax liabilities. 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, or we may fail to prevail in present and future intellectual property litigation. We perform a substantial amount of our commercial manufacturing activities at a few key facilities and also depend on third parties for a portion of our manufacturing activities, 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 many 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. Certain of our distributors, customers and payers have substantial purchasing leverage in their dealings with us. The discovery of significant problems with a product similar to one of our products that implicate an entire class of products could have a material adverse effect on sales of the affected products and on our business and results of operations. Our efforts to acquire other companies or products and to integrate the operations of companies we have acquired may not be successful. We may not be able to access the capital and credit markets on terms that are favorable to us, or at all. We are increasingly dependent on information technology systems, infrastructure and data security. Our stock price is volatile and may be affected by a number of events. 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 acquired in business combinations.










(b)

For the three months and years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, the adjustments related primarily to non-cash amortization of intangible assets acquired in business combinations. For the year ended December 31, 2016, the adjustments also included a $73-million charge resulting from the reacquisition of Prolia®, XGEVA®and Vectibix® license agreements in certain markets from Glaxo Group Limited.










(c)

For the three months and year ended December 31, 2016, the adjustments related primarily to asset-related charges from our site closures. For the three months ended December 31, 2015, the adjustments related primarily to a gain recognized on the sale of assets related to our site closures. The adjustments for the year ended December 31, 2015, related primarily to gains recognized on the sale of assets related to our site closures, partially offset by severance expenses.










(d)

The adjustments related primarily to the impairment of non-key contract assets acquired as part of a business combination and the change in fair values of contingent consideration.










(e)

The tax effect of the adjustments between our GAAP and non-GAAP 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 months and year ended December 31, 2016, were 30.2% and 31.8%, respectively, compared with 27.6% and 31.4% for the corresponding periods of the prior year.










(f)

The adjustments related to certain acquisition items and prior period items excluded from non-GAAP earnings.
