- Very strong launch results for XIIDRA; 64,732 scripts written through October 21, with a market share of 16%.
- Product sales growth of 110% in Q3 2016 to $3.3 billion, driven by record legacy Shire product sales and the inclusion of legacy Baxalta franchises.
- Underlying growth in Q3 2016 hematology and immunology businesses largely in line with overall market trends; pro forma sales growth of legacy Baxalta products impacted by the timing of large orders.
- Q3 2016 year to date growth for legacy Shire product sales was 15% (16% on a Non GAAP CER basis) and legacy Baxalta was 7% on a pro forma basis (8% on a Non GAAP CER pro forma basis), in line with our expectations.
- Operating expense synergy initiatives ahead of schedule, including manufacturing footprint optimization review.
- Sharp focus on transitioning legacy Baxalta products onto Shire's commercial platform and operating execution.
- Issued $12.1 billion aggregate principal debt at a weighted average interest rate of 2.6%; net proceeds used to fully repay bridge facility for financing Baxalta transaction.
- Pipeline continuing to deliver with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of CUVITRU, and European Commission (EC) Marketing Authorization for ONIVYDE accompanied by Orphan Drug Designation.
- Fully enrolled Phase 3 study for SHP643 in prophylaxis of hereditary angioedema with results expected in the first half of 2017.
- FDA resubmission of SHP465 for the treatment of ADHD on track to be made in Q4 2016.
Flemming Ornskov, M.D., M.P.H., Shire Chief Executive Officer, commented:
"During the third quarter, we made rapid progress integrating our new company while delivering record quarterly product sales growth and remaining on track to meet our full year Non GAAP guidance. The launch of XIIDRA is off to a very strong start, and we are using this momentum to build a leadership position in pharmaceutical ophthalmics. Commercial execution remains a top priority across the business. Also, our robust pipeline is continuing to advance, and we look forward to highlighting key programs during our upcoming Investor Day. The changes we are applying to the legacy Baxalta business are similar to the One Shire initiative we undertook in 2013-2014, which set off a period of strong growth and profitability. I am highly confident about Shire's future growth prospects."
FINANCIAL SUMMARY - THIRD QUARTER 2016
- Total product sales increased 110% versus Q3 2015 (up 111% on a Non GAAP CER basis) to $3,315 million (Q3 2015: $1,577 million), primarily due to the inclusion of $1,546 million of legacy Baxalta sales.
- Excluding Baxalta, product sales increased 12% (13% on a Non GAAP CER basis) with all legacy Shire franchises exhibiting growth in Q3 2016, with Neuroscience up 15%, Genetic Diseases up 5% and Internal Medicine up 15% compared with Q3 2015. Following the launch of XIIDRA in August 2016, our Ophthalmology franchise contributed sales of $14 million.
- Royalties and other revenues increased 75% to $137 million, as Q3 2016 benefited from additional revenue acquired with Baxalta, primarily related to contract manufacturing activities.
- Research and Development (R&D) expenses increased by 112% compared with Q3 2015, primarily due to the inclusion of Baxalta and Dyax operating costs, and costs related to licensing SHP647. Non GAAP R&D increased by 68% in Q3 2016 primarily due to the inclusion of Baxalta and Dyax operating costs.
- Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses increased by 98% compared with Q3 2015, primarily due to the inclusion of Baxalta operating costs and XIIDRA launch costs. Non GAAP SG&A increased by 103% in Q3 2016.
- On a US GAAP basis, the operating loss was $406 million in Q3 2016 (Q3 2015: operating income of $456 million). The operating loss in Q3 2016 was primarily due to the impact of acquisition accounting, including higher amortization of inventory fair value step up and amortization of acquired intangible assets, combined with higher integration and acquisition costs. Non GAAP operating income increased 73% to $1,254 million (Q3 2015: $725 million), primarily due to the inclusion of a full quarter of Baxalta operating income and higher revenue from legacy Shire products.
- Non GAAP EBITDA margin (excluding royalties and other revenue, and cost of sales related to contract manufacturing revenues) was 38% (Q3 2015: 43%). The decrease was primarily due to the impact of a full quarter of lower margin product franchises acquired with Baxalta and XIIDRA launch costs.
Earnings per share (EPS)
- On a US GAAP basis, diluted losses per American Depositary Shares (ADS) were $1.29 (Q3 2015: earnings per ADS of $2.29). The Q3 2016 loss was primarily due to lower US GAAP operating income resulting from the impact of acquisition accounting, including higher amortization of inventory fair value step up and amortization of acquired intangible assets, combined with higher integration and acquisition costs, all primarily related to the Baxalta transaction.
- Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS decreased 2% to $3.17 (Q3 2015: $3.24), as higher Non GAAP operating income was more than offset by the additional shares issued as consideration for the Baxalta transaction.
- On a US GAAP basis, net cash provided by operating activities decreased 6% to $526 million (Q3 2015: $561 million), primarily due to a payment associated with the termination of a biosimilar collaboration acquired with Baxalta, an increase in costs related to the Baxalta integration and higher tax and interest payments, partially offset by strong cash receipts from higher sales.
- Non GAAP cash generation increased 41% to $830 million (Q3 2015: $588 million), primarily due to strong cash receipts from higher sales, partially offset by a payment associated with the termination of a biosimilar collaboration acquired with Baxalta and an increase in costs related to the Baxalta integration.
- Non GAAP free cash flow decreased 27% to $395 million (Q3 2015: $539 million), primarily due to the decrease in net cash provided by operating activities described above combined with an increase in capital expenditures of $199 million in support of manufacturing operations.
- Non GAAP net debt at September 30, 2016 was $23,346 million (December 31, 2015: $1,459 million) representing aggregate long and short term borrowings of $23,726 million, primarily used to fund the acquisitions of Baxalta and Dyax and other debt primarily related to capital leases of $349 million, partially offset by cash and cash equivalents of $729 million.
After our first full quarter following the acquisition of Baxalta, we are reiterating our non-GAAP guidance from Q2 2016 and updating our US GAAP guidance.
The full year 2016 guidance includes the legacy Baxalta business as of June 3, 2016. The guidance includes expected operating cost synergy savings for 2016 based on our target of at least $700 million in year three post close.
The Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS forecast assumes a weighted average number of 778 million fully diluted ordinary shares outstanding for 2016 following the equity issuance for the Baxalta transaction.
Our US GAAP diluted earnings per ADS outlook has been updated to reflect an increase in integration costs related to the Baxalta transaction, costs related to licensing SHP647 and reorganization costs associated with the planned closure of a facility in our Los Angeles manufacturing site.
Non GAAP Full Year 2016 US GAAP Outlook Outlook Total product sales $10.8 - $11 billion $10.8 - $11 billion Royalties & other revenues $490 - $530 million $490 - $530 million Gross margin 58% - 60% 77% - 79% Combined R&D and SG&A $4.3 - $4.7 billion $4.1 - $4.4 billion Net interest/other $500 - $550 million $400 - $450 million Effective tax rate 92% - 136% 16% - 18% Diluted earnings per ADS ($1.10) - ($0.70) $12.70 - $13.10
 For a list of items excluded from Non GAAP Outlook, refer to pages 27-28 of this release.
 For 2016, we expect our effective tax benefit rate on GAAP pre-tax losses from operations to be in the range of 92% - 136%. The GAAP effective tax rate for 2016 is highly sensitive to the relative quantum of profit or loss before tax, leading to the wide range of the expected GAAP effective tax rate.
 See page 23 for a reconciliation between US GAAP diluted earnings per ADS and Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS.

OVERVIEW OF THIRD QUARTER 2016 FINANCIAL RESULTS
- Product Sales
For the three months ended Q3 2016, product sales increased 110% to $3,315 million (Q3 2015: $1,577 million), primarily due to the Baxalta transaction. Excluding legacy Baxalta, product sales increased 12% (up 13% on a Non GAAP CER basis).

The Hematology franchise was acquired with Baxalta in June 2016 and includes sales of recombinant and plasma-derived hemophilia products (primarily factor VIII and factor IX) and inhibitor therapies. Reported product sales in Q3 2016 were $884 million and represent 56 percentage points of Shire's reported product sales growth. Underlying pro forma Q3 2016 growth in Hematology was largely in line with market trends, but was impacted by the timing or large orders.
Genetic Diseases product sales in Q3 2016 increased 5% (up 6% on a Non GAAP CER basis) compared with Q3 2015, led by strong patient growth in FIRAZYR and across our LSD portfolio.
FIRAZYR sales increased 19% in Q3 2016 compared with Q3 2015 due to an increase in the number of patients on therapy in both U.S. and international markets. The growth was held back by lower utilization per patient. CINRYZE sales decreased by 12% in Q3 2016 compared with Q3 2015, as an increase in the number of patients on therapy was more than offset by destocking and reduced utilization as a result of a U.S. supply constraint. Shire has taken steps to increase CINRYZE production and expects to return to normalized supply by early 2017.
Neuroscience product sales increased 15% (up 16% on a Non GAAP CER basis) in Q3 2016 compared with Q3 2015 with growth primarily driven by VYVANSE.
VYVANSE sales increased 20% due to year-over-year prescription growth in the U.S., the benefit of a price increase taken since Q3 2015 and, to a lesser extent, increased stocking in Q3 2016 and growth in our international markets.
The Immunology franchise was acquired with Baxalta in June 2016 and includes sales of antibody-replacement immunoglobulin and bio therapeutics therapies. Reported product sales in Q3 2016 were $607 million and represent 38 percentage points of Shire's reported product sales growth. Underlying pro forma Q3 2016 growth in Immunology was largely in line with market trends, but was impacted by the timing or large orders, particularly our Bio Therapeutics portfolio.
Internal Medicine product sales increased 15% (up 16% on a Non GAAP CER basis) in Q3 2016, with strong growth from LIALDA/MEZAVANT, GATTEX/REVESTIVE and NATPARA.
LIALDA/MEZAVANT sales increased 18% due to an increase in prescription demand, resulting in a market share of 40% at the end of Q3 2016 and the impact of a price increase taken since Q3 2015.
GATTEX/REVESTIVE and NATPARA continued to perform well with sales increasing 35% and 238%, respectively, primarily due to an increase in the numbers of patients on therapy.
The Oncology franchise was acquired with Baxalta in June 2016 and includes sales of ONCASPAR. Reported sales in Q3 2016 were $55 million and represent 4 percentage points of Shire's reported product sales growth.
Product sales relate to XIIDRA, which was made available to patients on August 29, 2016. XIIDRA contributed $14 million of product sales in Q3 2016, primarily due to initial launch stocking.
Baxalta pro forma product sales growth

Non GAAP SG&A increased by $429 million, or 103%, compared with Q3 2015. Q3 2016 Non GAAP SG&A as a percentage of product sales remained consistent with Q3 2015 at 26%.
- Reported SG&A for periods prior to Q3 2016 have been recast to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, which is now presented as a separate line item in the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations.
Integration and acquisition costs
In Q3 2016, Shire recorded integration and acquisition costs of $285 million, primarily related to the Baxalta and Dyax transactions.
In Q3 2015, Shire recorded integration and acquisition costs of $90 million, which included costs related to the integration of NPS and the proposed combination with Baxalta of $31 million. Additionally there was a net charge of $59 million for the change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, primarily related to SHP625 (acquired with Lumena).
Amortization of acquired intangible assets
In Q3 2016, Shire recorded amortization of acquired intangible assets of $355 million (Q3 2015: $133 million). The increase primarily related to amortization on the intangible assets acquired with the Baxalta and Dyax transactions.
In Q3 2016, Shire recorded reorganization costs of $101 million, primarily related to the planned closure of a facility at the Los Angeles manufacturing site.
In Q3 2015, Shire recorded reorganization costs of $31 million, primarily related to the relocation of roles from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts.

US GAAP Other expense, net increased $191 million, primarily due to higher interest expense and amortization of one-time borrowing costs incurred on borrowings, including the write off of certain financing costs related to the bridge facility for the Baxalta transaction. During Q3 2016, the bridge facility was fully repaid with the proceeds from the $12.1 billion public debt offering.
Non GAAP Other expense, net increased $133 million, primarily due to higher interest expense as noted above.
Effective Effective (in millions) Q3 2016 tax rate Q3 2015 tax rate Income tax benefit (US GAAP) $ 229.6 38 % $ 22.3 (5 %) Tax effect of adjustments (377.3 ) (94.4 ) Non GAAP Income tax charge $ (147.7 ) 13 % $ (72.1 ) 10 %
The effective tax rate on US GAAP income in Q3 2016 was 38% (Q3 2015: -5%) and on a Non GAAP basis was 13% (Q3 2015: 10%).
The effective tax rate in Q3 2016 on US GAAP income from continuing operations is higher primarily due to the combined impact of the relative quantum of the profit before tax for the period by jurisdiction and the reversal of deferred tax liabilities from the Baxalta acquisition (including in higher tax territories), inventory and intangible asset amortization, as well as acquisition and integration costs.
The Q3 2015 GAAP tax rate was negative primarily due to the release of certain valuation allowances and the effect of the finalization of various tax returns during the period.
The Q3 2016 Non GAAP tax rate is higher than the same period in 2015, primarily due to relatively higher discrete benefits in Q3 2015 compared with Q3 2016 in relation to the release of certain valuation allowances and the effect of the finalization of various tax returns.
The loss from discontinued operations in Q3 2016 was $18 million, net of tax, primarily due to legal contingencies related to the divested DERMAGRAFT business. The loss in Q3 2015 was $24 million, net of tax, primarily related to a change in estimate for onerous lease provisions.

THE "SAFE HARBOR" STATEMENT UNDER THE PRIVATE SECURITIES LITIGATION REFORM ACT OF 1995
Statements included herein that are not historical facts, including without limitation statements concerning future strategy, plans, objectives, expectations and intentions, the anticipated timing of clinical trials and approvals for, and the commercial potential of, inline or pipeline products are forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties and are subject to change at any time. In the event such risks or uncertainties materialize, Shire's results could be materially adversely affected. The risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Shire's products may not be a commercial success;
- increased pricing pressures and limits on patient access as a result of governmental regulations and market developments may affect Shire's future revenues, financial condition and results of operations;
- Shire conducts its own manufacturing operations for certain of its products and is reliant on third party contract manufacturers to manufacture other products and to provide goods and services. Some of Shire's products or ingredients are only available from a single approved source for manufacture. Any disruption to the supply chain for any of Shire's products may result in Shire being unable to continue marketing or developing a product or may result in Shire being unable to do so on a commercially viable basis for some period of time;
- the manufacture of Shire's products is subject to extensive oversight by various regulatory agencies. Regulatory approvals or interventions associated with changes to manufacturing sites, ingredients or manufacturing processes could lead to significant delays, an increase in operating costs, lost product sales, an interruption of research activities or the delay of new product launches;
- certain of Shire's therapies involve lengthy and complex processes, which may prevent Shire from timely responding to market forces and effectively managing its production capacity;
- Shire has a portfolio of products in various stages of research and development. The successful development of these products is highly uncertain and requires significant expenditures and time, and there is no guarantee that these products will receive regulatory approval;
- the actions of certain customers could affect Shire's ability to sell or market products profitably. Fluctuations in buying or distribution patterns by such customers can adversely affect Shire's revenues, financial conditions or results of operations;
- Shire's products and product candidates face substantial competition in the product markets in which it operates, including competition from generics;
- adverse outcomes in legal matters, tax audits and other disputes, including Shire's ability to enforce and defend patents and other intellectual property rights required for its business, could have a material adverse effect on the combined company's revenues, financial condition or results of operations;
- inability to successfully compete for highly qualified personnel from other companies and organizations;
- failure to achieve the strategic objectives with respect to Shire's acquisition of NPS, Dyax or Baxalta may adversely affect Shire's financial condition and results of operations;
- Shire's growth strategy depends in part upon its ability to expand its product portfolio through external collaborations, which, if unsuccessful, may adversely affect the development and sale of its products;
- a slowdown of global economic growth, or economic instability of countries in which Shire does business, as well as changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates, that adversely impact the availability and cost of credit and customer purchasing and payment patterns, including the collectability of customer accounts receivable;
- failure of a marketed product to work effectively or if such a product is the cause of adverse side effects could result in damage to Shire's reputation, the withdrawal of the product and legal action against Shire;
- investigations or enforcement action by regulatory authorities or law enforcement agencies relating to Shire's activities in the highly regulated markets in which it operates may result in significant legal costs and the payment of substantial compensation or fines;
- Shire is dependent on information technology and its systems and infrastructure face certain risks, including from service disruptions, the loss of sensitive or confidential information, cyber-attacks and other security breaches or data leakages that could have a material adverse effect on Shire's revenues, financial condition or results of operations;
- Shire incurred substantial additional indebtedness to finance the Baxalta acquisition, which may decrease its business flexibility and increase borrowing costs;
- difficulties in integrating Dyax or Baxalta into Shire may lead to the combined company not being able to realize the expected operating efficiencies, cost savings, revenue enhancements, synergies or other benefits at the time anticipated or at all; and
other risks and uncertainties detailed from time to time in Shire's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including those risks outlined in "ITEM 1A: Risk Factors" in Shire's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.
All forward-looking statements attributable to us or any person acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements that speak only as of the date hereof. Except to the extent otherwise required by applicable law, we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
NON GAAP MEASURES
This press release contains financial measures not prepared in accordance with US GAAP. These measures are referred to as "Non GAAP" measures and include: Non GAAP operating income; Non GAAP net income; Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS; effective tax rate on Non GAAP income before income taxes and (losses/earnings) of equity method investees (effective tax rate on Non GAAP income); Non GAAP CER; Non GAAP cost of product sales; Non GAAP gross margin; Non GAAP R&D; Non GAAP SG&A; Non GAAP other expense; Non GAAP cash generation; Non GAAP free cash flow, Non GAAP net debt, Non GAAP EBITDA and Non GAAP EBITDA margin (excluding royalties and other revenues and cost of sales related to contract manufacturing revenues).
The Non GAAP measures exclude the impact of certain specified items that are highly variable, difficult to predict, and of a size that may substantially impact Shire's operations. Upfront and milestone payments related to in-licensing and acquired products that have been expensed as R&D are also excluded as specified items as they are generally uncertain and often result in a different payment and expense recognition pattern than ongoing internal R&D activities. Intangible asset amortization has been excluded from certain measures to facilitate an evaluation of current and past operating performance, particularly in terms of cash returns, and is similar to how management internally assesses performance. The Non GAAP financial measures are presented in this press release as Shire's management believes that they will provide investors with an additional analysis of Shire's results of operations, particularly in evaluating performance from one period to another.
Shire's management uses Non GAAP financial measures to make operating decisions as they facilitate additional internal comparisons of Shire's performance to historical results and to competitor's results, and provides them to investors as a supplement to Shire's reported results to provide additional insight into Shire's operating performance. Shire's Remuneration Committee uses certain key Non GAAP measures when assessing the performance and compensation of employees, including Shire's executive directors.
The Non GAAP financial measures used by Shire may be calculated different from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies - refer to the section "Non GAAP Financial Measure Descriptions" below for additional information. In addition, these Non GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for, or as superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with US GAAP, and Shire's financial results calculated in accordance with US GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated.
Non GAAP Financial Measure Descriptions
Where applicable the following items, including their tax effect, have been excluded when calculating Non GAAP earnings and from our outlook:
Amortization and asset impairments:
- Intangible asset amortization and impairment charges; and
- Other than temporary impairment of investments.
Acquisitions and integration activities:
- Up-front payments and milestones in respect of in-licensed and acquired products;
- Costs associated with acquisitions, including transaction costs, fair value adjustments on contingent consideration and acquired inventory;
- Costs associated with the integration of companies; and
- Noncontrolling interests in consolidated variable interest entities.
Divestments, reorganizations and discontinued operations:
- Gains and losses on the sale of non-core assets;
- Costs associated with restructuring and reorganization activities;
- Termination costs; and
- Income/(losses) from discontinued operations.
Legal and litigation costs:
- Net legal costs related to the settlement of litigation, government investigations and other disputes (excluding internal legal team costs).
Additionally, in any given period Shire may have significant, unusual or non-recurring gains or losses which it may exclude from its Non GAAP earnings for that period. When applicable, these items would be fully disclosed and incorporated into the required reconciliations from US GAAP to Non GAAP measures.
Depreciation, which is included in Cost of product sales, R&D and SG&A costs in our US GAAP results, has been separately disclosed for presentational purposes.
Cash generation represents net cash provided by operating activities, excluding up-front and milestone payments for in-licensed and acquired products, tax and interest payments.
Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities, excluding up-front and milestone payments for in-licensed and acquired products, but including capital expenditure in the ordinary course of business.
Non GAAP net debt represents cash and cash equivalents less short and long term borrowings and other debt.
A reconciliation of Non GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable measure under US GAAP is presented on pages 21 to 23.
Non GAAP CER growth is computed by restating 2016 results using average 2015 foreign exchange rates for the relevant period.
Average exchange rates used by Shire for Q3 2016 were $1.32:£1.00 and $1.11:€1.00 (2015: $1.56:£1.00 and $1.11:€1.00). Average exchange rates used by Shire for the nine months to September 30, 2016 were $1.40:£1.00 and $1.11:€1.00 (2015: $1.54:£1.00 and $1.12:€1.00).
