Jan 27, 2015, 16:01 ET from Amgen

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2014. Key results include:

  • For the fourth quarter, total revenues increased 6 percent to $5,331 million, with product sales growing at 8 percent.  Adjusted EPS grew 19 percent to $2.16.
  • For the full year, total revenues increased 7 percent to $20,063 million, with 6 percent product sales growth driven by strong performance across the portfolio. Adjusted operating income grew 22 percent to $8,475 million.  Adjusted EPS grew 14 percent to $8.70, driven by higher operating income offset partially by a higher tax rate in 2014.
  • 2014 adjusted operating margin improved by 6 percentage points to 44 percent. 
  • GAAP EPS were $1.68 in the fourth quarter compared to $1.33 a year ago and $6.70 for the full year compared to $6.64 in 2013.

References in this release to "adjusted" measures, measures presented "on an adjusted basis" or to free cash flow refer to non-GAAP financial measures. These adjustments and other items are presented on the attached reconciliations.

  • Total product sales increased 8 percent for the fourth quarter of 2014 versus the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase was driven primarily by Enbrel® (etanercept), Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim), Prolia® (denosumab), XGEVA® (denosumab) and Vectibix® (panitumumab).  Growth for the quarter was due primarily to higher unit demand, and to a lesser extent, price.  Product sales increased 6 percent for the full year driven by strong performance across the portfolio.
  • Enbrel sales increased 11 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter and 3 percent for the full year driven by price, and to a lesser extent, higher unit demand. 
  • Neulasta sales increased 7 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter and 5 percent for the full year driven mainly by price.  NEUPOGEN® (filgrastim) sales decreased 11 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter driven by the impact of competition in the United States (U.S.) and unfavorable changes in inventory levels and foreign exchange rates, offset partially by the benefit from the acquisition of commercial rights in new markets.  NEUPOGEN sales declined 17 percent for the full year due primarily to an unfavorable comparison to 2013 as a result of the $155 million order from the U.S. government in 2013.
  • Prolia sales increased 33 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter and 38 percent for the full year, driven by higher unit demand from share growth.
  • XGEVA sales increased 14 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter and 20 percent for the full year driven by higher unit demand.  XGEVA continues to capture share in a growing market.
  • Vectibix sales increased 29 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter and 30 percent for the full year driven by higher unit demand.  
  • Kyprolis® (carfilzomib) sales increased 25 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter driven by higher unit demand. 2014 sales totaled $331 million in the first full year of commercialization since the acquisition of Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Onyx).
  • EPOGEN® (epoetin alfa) sales increased 3 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter as price and favorable changes in inventory levels were offset partially by a decline in unit demand.  Sales increased 4 percent for the full year driven by price, offset partially by declines in unit demand.
  • Sensipar®/Mimpara® (cinacalcet) sales increased 3 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter as unit demand growth of 10 percent and price growth were offset partially by unfavorable changes in inventory levels.  Sales increased 6 percent for the full year driven primarily by unit demand.
  • Aranesp® (darbepoetin alfa) sales increased 2 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter and 1 percent for the full year driven largely by higher unit demand. 
  • Nplate® (romiplostim) decreased 1 percent year-over-year for the fourth quarter as 7 percent unit demand growth was more than offset by unfavorable changes in inventory levels and foreign exchange rates. Sales for the full year increased 10 percent due mainly to higher unit demand.

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

  • Cost of Sales margin decreased 0.1 point in the fourth quarter of 2014 and remained flat for the full year.
  • Research & Development (R&D) expenses in the fourth quarter of 2014 were unchanged from the same quarter last year and included a $60 million upfront payment related to the Company's cancer immunotherapy collaboration with Kite Pharma. For the full year, R&D expenses increased 5 percent driven by the addition of Onyx programs and support for later-stage clinical programs, offset partially by reduced expenses associated with marketed product support and Discovery Research & Translational Sciences. 
  • Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses were flat in the fourth quarter of 2014. Increased commercial expenses in preparation for new product launches were offset largely by lower ENBREL-related payments.  For the full year, SG&A expenses decreased 10 percent driven primarily by lower ENBREL-related payments, offset partially by the addition of Onyx and increased commercial expenses in preparation for new product launches.
  • Operating Income increased 15 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014.  For the full year, Operating Income increased 22 percent driven by higher revenues, lower ENBREL-related payments and over $300 million in cost savings from previously announced actions to transform to a more focused operating model.  Total savings were offset substantially by the impact of consolidating the expenses of Onyx on a full year basis, as well as increased investments in later-stage clinical programs, new product launch preparation, and external business development including the Kite Pharma collaboration.
  • Adjusted Tax Rate for the fourth quarter of 2014 reflects the favorable tax benefit from the extension of the 2014 federal R&D tax credit, offset partially by the unfavorable tax impact of changes in the geographic mix of earnings.  Extension of the federal R&D tax credit, as well as certain other business tax provisions for 2014, resulted in a tax benefit of $109 million for the Company in the fourth quarter. The full year adjusted tax rate increased due to the combination of the favorable resolution of the Company's federal income tax audit in 2013, the unfavorable tax impact of changes in the geographic mix of earnings in 2014, and the retroactive extension of the 2012 federal R&D credit in 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this news release, management has presented its operating results for the fourth quarters and full years 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 2015 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 fourth quarters and full years 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 year ended December 31, 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 2014 adjustments related primarily to non-cash amortization of intangible assets acquired in business combinations. For the three months ended December 31, 2013, the adjustments related primarily to charges associated with the Onyx business combination, which included the acceleration of Onyx unvested equity compensation (Onyx equity compensation). The three months and year ended December 31, 2013, also included 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 the Onyx equity compensation.



(d)

The 2014 adjustments related to the Internal Revenue Service issuing final regulations that required us to recognize an additional year of the non-tax deductible branded prescription drug fee.



(e)

The adjustments related primarily to severance expenses.



(f)

The adjustments for 2014 and the three months ended December 31, 2013, related primarily to various acquisition-related expenses. For the year ended December 31, 2013, the adjustments related primarily to various legal proceedings.



(g)

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 months and year ended December 31, 2014, were 32.6% and 31.4%, respectively, compared with 39.3% and 33.0% for the corresponding periods of the prior year.



(h)

The adjustments in 2014 and the three months ended December 31, 2013, related primarily to certain prior period items excluded from adjusted earnings. For the year ended December 31, 2013, the adjustments related to resolving certain non-routine transfer-pricing and acquisition-related issues with tax authorities as well as the impact related to certain prior period items excluded from adjusted earnings.
