THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2013. Key results include:

  • For the fourth quarter, total revenues increased 13 percent to $5,011 million, with product sales growing at 11 percent. Adjusted EPS grew 30 percent to $1.82, with higher revenues, the end of the Enbrel® (etanercept) profit share, and a lower tax rate partially offset by increased Research & Development (R&D) investment. The fourth quarter includes results for Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Onyx), which was acquired on Oct. 1, 2013.
  • For the full year, total revenues increased 8 percent to $18,676 million, with 9 percent product sales growth driven by strong performance across the portfolio. Adjusted EPS grew 17 percent to $7.60, with higher revenues and a lower tax rate partially offset by increased R&D investment.
  • GAAP EPS were $1.33 in the fourth quarter compared to $1.01 a year ago and $6.64 for the full year compared to $5.52 in 2012.
  • Free cash flow for the full year was $5.6 billion compared to $5.2 billion in 2012.

Operating Expense and Tax Rate Analysis, on an Adjusted Basis

  • Cost of Sales margin decreased 0.8 points in the fourth quarter of 2013 and 0.6 points for the full year.
  • R&D expenses increased 27 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 and 19 percent for the full year, primarily in support of our later-stage clinical programs, including evolocumab (AMG 145) and Kyprolis.
  • Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses decreased 3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 driven primarily by the end of the ENBREL profit share with Pfizer on Oct. 31, which reduced expenses $129 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2012, offset partially by the addition of Onyx. For the full year, SG&A expenses increased 4 percent, driven primarily by the U.S. healthcare reform federal excise fee and the addition of Onyx.

  • Tax Rates for the fourth quarter and full year of 2013 reflect the favorable impacts of changes in the jurisdictional mix of income and expenses and the current year benefit from the federal R&D credit. The full year adjusted tax rate also benefited from the resolution of the Company's federal income tax audit for tax years 2007-2009 and the retroactive extension of the 2012 federal R&D credit in the first quarter of 2013.

Includes cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, and long-term restricted investments.  The impact of the Onyx acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $9.7 billion, net of Onyx's cash and investments acquired.  The Onyx acquisition was partially financed with $8.1 billion in bank debt.

2014 Guidance

For the full year 2014, the Company expects:

  • 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.

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, 2012, 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.

*Dilutive securities used to compute "Adjusted" diluted EPS were computed assuming that we do not expense stock options. 

(a)

For the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, the total pre-tax expense for employee stock options was $8 million and $34 million, respectively, compared with $13 million and $59 million for the corresponding periods of the prior year.

"Adjusted" diluted EPS including the impact of stock option expense were as follows:

(b)

The adjustments related primarily to non-cash amortization of developed product technology rights acquired in business combinations, including $176 million in 2013 related to Onyx.

(c)

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 prior year business combinations. The adjustments in 2012 related primarily to non-cash amortization of intangible assets as well as retention and severance expenses.

(d)

The adjustments in 2013 related primarily to the Onyx equity compensation. Both 2013 and 2012 included non-cash amortization of intangible assets acquired in prior year business combinations as well as business combination transaction costs.

(e)

The adjustments in 2012 related primarily to the write-off of a non-key intangible asset acquired in a prior year business combination.

(f)

The adjustments in 2013 and the three months ended December 31, 2012, related primarily to severance expenses. For the year ended December 31, 2012, the adjustments related primarily to severance expenses and lease abandonment costs.

(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 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 and year ended December 31, 2013, were 39.3% and 33.0%, respectively, compared with 25.9% and 30.5% for the corresponding periods of the prior year.

(h)

For the three months ended December 31, 2013, the adjustments 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. The adjustments in 2012 related to certain prior period items excluded from adjusted earnings.

Note:

The 2012 expenses related to amortization of certain acquired intangible assets within operating expenses have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.
