Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Lilly Reports Third-Quarter 2012 Results06:30 EDT Wednesday, October 24, 2012INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Worldwide revenue declined 11 percent to $5.443 billion, driven by Zyprexa patent expirations. Cymbalta revenue increased 16 percent due to continued growth in both the U.S. and international markets. Third-quarter earnings per share were $1.18 (reported), or $0.79 (non-GAAP, when excluding income from Amylin payment and asset impairment and restructuring charge). Data read-outs provided a better understanding of several potential new medicines in Lilly's clinical pipeline. 2012 non-GAAP EPS guidance reconfirmed to be in the range of $3.30 - $3.40, while reported EPS guidance range revised to $3.68 - $3.78.Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2012.$ in millions, except per share dataThird Quarter%20122011ChangeTotal Revenue ? Reported$5,443.3$6,147.9(11)%Net Income ? Reported1,326.61,236.37%EPS ? Reported 1.181.116%Net Income ? non-GAAP888.31,253.8(29)%EPS ? non-GAAP0.791.13(30)%Financial results for 2012 and 2011 are presented on both a reported and a non-GAAP basis. Reported results were prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and include all revenue and expenses recognized during the period. Non-GAAP results exclude the items described in the reconciliation tables later in the release. The non-GAAP results are presented in order to provide additional insights into the underlying trends in the company's business. The company's 2012 financial guidance is also being provided on both a reported and a non-GAAP basis. "The third quarter was an eventful one for Lilly, as we gained a better understanding of several potential new medicines in our clinical pipeline, while maintaining focus on delivering solid financial results despite the loss of Zyprexa patent exclusivity," said John C. Lechleiter, Ph.D., Lilly's chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We are executing well on our business objectives and advancing our pipeline that now has more than 60 molecules in clinical development. We remain firmly committed to our innovation-based strategy in order to meet the needs of the patients who rely on us for new medicines."Key Events Over the Last Three MonthsThe company announced that the primary endpoints, both cognitive and functional, were not met in either of the two phase III, double-blind, placebo-controlled solanezumab EXPEDITION trials in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease. However, a pre-specified secondary analysis of pooled data across both trials showed a 34 percent reduction of cognitive decline in patients with mild Alzheimer's disease. The next steps for solanezumab will be determined after discussions with regulators. Following the completion of its acquisition by Bristol-Myers Squibb, Amylin paid to Lilly $1.259 billion in satisfaction of its revenue-sharing obligation with respect to exenatide. In addition, Amylin also repaid to Lilly a $165 million loan plus accrued interest. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed a prior ruling by the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware that the company's compound patent for Alimta® is valid. The compound patent provides protection for Alimta in the U.S. through January of 2017. The company announced positive top-line results of three completed phase III AWARD trials for dulaglutide, an investigational, long-acting glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) analog being studied as a once-weekly treatment for type 2 diabetes. Primary efficacy endpoints, as measured by reduction in hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) at the 1.5 mg dose, were met in three studies (AWARD-1, AWARD-3 and AWARD-5).  Having met the primary endpoints, superiority for HbA1c lowering was examined, and both doses of dulaglutide (0.75mg and 1.5mg) demonstrated statistically superior reduction in HbA1c from baseline compared to: exenatide twice-daily injection at 26 weeks (AWARD-1); metformin at 26 weeks (AWARD-3); and sitagliptin at 52 weeks (AWARD-5). The company announced that the REGARD trial, a phase III study of ramucirumab (IMC-1121B) in patients with metastatic gastric cancer, met its primary endpoint of improved overall survival and its secondary endpoint of increased progression-free survival. The company made the decision to stop ongoing phase III clinical studies investigating pomaglumetad methionil, also known as mGlu2/3, for the treatment of patients suffering from schizophrenia. The decision was made after an independent futility analysis concluded HBBN, the second of Lilly's two pivotal studies, was unlikely to be positive in its primary efficacy endpoint if enrolled to completion. The decision was not based on any safety signals. The company and its partner, Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited, announced data from the TRILOGY ACS study, a phase III trial comparing prasugrel plus aspirin to clopidogrel plus aspirin in patients with unstable angina (UA) or non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), who were managed medically without an artery-opening procedure. The study did not demonstrate prasugrel was superior to clopidogrel in these patients. The company announced that the phase III POINTBREAK trial did not meet its primary endpoint of improved overall survival for patients with nonsquamous non-small cell lung cancer who were randomized to receive a combination of Alimta with bevacizumab and carboplatin induction followed by Alimta plus bevacizumab maintenance compared to the combination of paclitaxel with bevacizumab and carboplatin followed by bevacizumab maintenance. The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) issued a positive opinion recommending approval of Cialis® tablets 5 mg for once a day use for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a supplemental new drug application for Tradjenta® tablets for use as add-on therapy to insulin. Europe's CHMP issued a positive opinion recommending approval of Trajenta for use as add-on therapy to insulin. The FDA approved a change in the label for Alimta to state that patients may receive Alimta as a maintenance therapy following first-line Alimta-cisplatin induction therapy for locally advanced or metastatic nonsquamous non-small cell lung cancer. Europe's CHMP issued a positive opinion recommending approval of AmyvidTM (Florbetapir F 18) solution for injection as a diagnostic radiopharmaceutical indicated for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging of beta-amyloid neuritic plaque density in the brains of adult patients with cognitive impairment who are being evaluated for Alzheimer's Disease and other causes of cognitive impairment.  Third-Quarter Reported ResultsIn the third quarter of 2012, worldwide total revenue was $5.443 billion, a decrease of 11 percent compared with the third quarter of 2011. This 11 percent revenue decline was comprised of a decrease of 9 percent due to lower volume and 3 percent due to the unfavorable effect of foreign exchange rates, partially offset by an increase of 1 percent due to price. The decrease in volume was driven by the loss of patent exclusivity for Zyprexa® in most major markets, partially offset by volume gains for certain other products. Total revenue in the U.S. decreased 9 percent to $2.986 billion due primarily to the loss of patent exclusivity for Zyprexa, partially offset by increased prices. Total revenue outside the U.S. decreased by 15 percent to $2.457 billion, driven by the loss of patent exclusivity for Zyprexa in markets outside of Japan, the unfavorable effect of foreign exchange rates, and decreased prices, partially offset by increased volume in other products.  Gross margin decreased 12 percent to $4.240 billion in the third quarter of 2012. Gross margin as a percent of total revenue was 77.9 percent, reflecting a decrease of 0.3 percentage points compared with the third quarter of 2011. The decrease in gross margin percent was primarily due to lower sales of Zyprexa, largely offset by the impact of foreign exchange rates on international inventories sold which decreased cost of sales in the third quarter of 2012 and increased cost of sales in the third quarter of 2011. Total operating expense, defined as the sum of research and development, marketing, selling and administrative expenses, decreased 3 percent compared with the third quarter of 2011. Marketing, selling and administrative expenses decreased 8 percent to $1.757 billion, driven primarily by lower marketing expense. Research and development expenses increased 5 percent to $1.343 billion, or 24.7 percent of total revenue, driven by expenses related to late-stage clinical trials.In the third quarter of 2012, the company recognized a charge of $53.3 million, primarily related to asset impairments associated with the decision to stop development of a delivery device platform. In the third quarter of 2011, the company recognized a charge of $25.2 million for restructuring related to severance costs from previously announced strategic actions to reduce the company's cost structure.Operating income in the third quarter of 2012 was $1.086 billion, a decrease of 32 percent compared to the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to lower gross margin resulting from the loss of patent exclusivity for Zyprexa, partially offset by a decrease in total operating expenses.Other income (expense) was a net income of $788.5 million, compared with net expense of $83.4 million in the third quarter of 2011. The increase in other income (expense) was driven by the early payment of the exenatide revenue-sharing obligation from Amylin Pharmaceuticals. The company recognized $787.8 million of income in the third quarter of 2012 related to this payment. Lilly also expects to recognize a net gain of approximately $490 million in 2013 contingent upon transfer of exenatide commercial rights outside the U.S. to Amylin. The third quarter of 2011 included expense from the partial impairment of an acquired in-process research and development asset related to Amyvid.The effective tax rate was 29.2 percent in the third quarter of 2012, compared with an effective tax rate of 17.7 percent in the third quarter of 2011. The increase in the third quarter 2012 effective tax rate reflects the tax impact of the payment received from Amylin and the expiration of the R&D tax credit in the U.S. at the end of 2011, while the third quarter 2011 tax rate was lower primarily due to the recognition of a $45.4 million discrete benefit primarily as a result of the resolution of the IRS audit of the company's 2007 federal income tax return.              Net income and earnings per share increased to $1.327 billion and $1.18, respectively, compared with third-quarter 2011 net income of $1.236 billion and earnings per share of $1.11. The increases in net income and earnings per share were driven by the early payment of the exenatide revenue-sharing obligation, partially offset by lower operating income.Third-Quarter 2012 non-GAAP ResultsOn a non-GAAP basis, third quarter 2012 operating income decreased 29 percent to $1.139 billion, due primarily to lower gross margin resulting from the loss of patent exclusivity for Zyprexa. The effective tax rate was 22.1 percent, compared with 17.9 percent in the third quarter of 2011. The increase in the effective tax rate reflects the expiration of the R&D tax credit at the end of 2011, as well as the recognition of the $45.4 million discrete benefit in the third quarter 2011. Net income and earnings per share decreased 29 and 30 percent, respectively, to $888.3 million and $0.79, respectively. These decreases were driven primarily by lower operating income. Non-GAAP results exclude items totaling $.39 per share of income in the third quarter of 2012 and $.02 per share of expense in the third quarter of 2011.

The company's earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis is still expected to be in the range of $3.30 to $3.40. Certain other elements of the company's 2012 financial guidance have also been updated, as noted below. 2012 Expectations2011Results % ChangeEarnings per share (reported)$3.68 to $3.78$3.90(6)% to (3)%Income from early payment of Amylin revenue-sharing obligation (.43) -In-process research and development charge associated with Boehringer Ingelheim collaboration  -  .23Asset impairment, restructuring, other special charges .05 .29Earnings per share (non-GAAP)$3.30 to $3.40$4.41(25)% to (23)%Numbers in the 2011 full-year column do not add due to rounding.The company still anticipates 2012 revenue of between $21.8 and $22.8 billion. This includes an expected decline of over $3 billion in Zyprexa sales due to patent expirations in most markets outside of Japan. The reduction in revenue due to Zyprexa patent expirations is expected to be partially offset by growth in key franchises including Cymbalta, Cialis, Alimta, Humalog and Forteo, as well as continued growth of newer products such as Effient and Axiron®. The company also anticipates strong, double-digit revenue growth from its Elanco Animal Health business. Both Japan and Emerging Markets are expected to post continued strong underlying volume growth; however, overall revenue growth in these markets in 2012 will be adversely affected by pricing actions in Japan and by the expected impact of patent expirations, including Zyprexa, in some emerging market countries. The company still anticipates that gross margin as a percent of revenue will be approximately 78 percent in 2012. As a result of ongoing productivity efforts, the company still expects to keep 2012 operating expenses essentially flat compared to 2011. Marketing, selling and administrative expenses are still expected to decline and be in the range of $7.3 billion to $7.7 billion. Research and development expense is still expected to be flat to increasing and in the range of $5.0 billion to $5.3 billion.On a reported basis, other income and deductions is now expected to be in a range between $640 million and $715 million of net income in 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, other income and deductions is now expected to be in a range between $150 million and $75 million of net expense in 2012.On a reported basis, the 2012 tax rate is still expected to be approximately 23.5 percent. On a non-GAAP basis, the 2012 tax rate is still expected to be approximately 21 percent. Both tax rates assume the extension of the R&D tax credit for the full year 2012.Operating cash flows in 2012 are still expected to be more than sufficient to fund capital expenditures of approximately $800 million, as well as anticipated business development activity, the company's current dividend and stock repurchases.Webcast of Conference CallAs previously announced, investors and the general public can access a live webcast of the third-quarter 2012 financial results conference call through a link on Lilly's website at www.lilly.com.
