An overview of specified items is discussed under the “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information” section.

Eliquis In December, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Eliquis to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. Eliquis also received regulatory approval for this indication in Japan and Canada in December, in Europe in November, and in South Korea in January. The Company co-develops and co-commercializes Eliquis with its partner, Pfizer. In December, at the 54th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology in Atlanta, results of the Phase III AMPLIFY-EXT trial were announced in which Eliquis demonstrated superiority versus placebo in reducing symptomatic, recurrent venous thromboembolism and all-cause death versus placebo without increasing the rate of major bleeding during one year of extended treatment. The data were also published in The New England Journal of Medicine.Forxiga In November, the European Commission approved Forxiga for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in the European Union. The Company co-develops and co-commercializes Forxiga with its partner, AstraZeneca. Orencia In November, at the 2012 American College of Rheumatology Annual Scientific Meeting in Washington, D.C., results were presented showing the subcutaneous formulation of Orencia, on a background of methotrexate (MTX), was similar to Humira® (adalimumab) plus MTX in demonstrating clinical improvements in patient-reported outcomes that were sustained for one year among adults with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. Elotuzumab In December, at the 54th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology in Atlanta, the Company and its partner, Abbott, presented encouraging results from a small, randomized, Phase II open-label study of patients with previously treated multiple myeloma which showed that in patients treated with elotuzumab 10mg/kg plus lenalidomide and low-dose dexamethasone progression-free survival was not reached after 20.8 months of follow up and the objective response rate was 92%. Hepatitis C In November, at the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases congress in Boston, data from several Phase II clinical trials involving various investigational compounds for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) within the Company's pipeline were presented, including: An investigational treatment regimen of three direct-acting antivirals—daclatasvir, an NS5A replication complex inhibitor, asunaprevir, an NS3 protease inhibitor, and BMS-791325, an NS5B non-nucleoside polymerase inhibitor—achieved sustained virologic response 12 weeks post-treatment in 94 percent of treatment-naïve, genotype 1 chronic HCV patients. The investigational dual regimen of daclatasvir and asunaprevir, without interferon or ribavirin, achieved high rates of sustained virologic response 12 weeks post-treatment in patients with genotype 1b hepatitis C virus who were prior null responders to alfa interferon and ribavirin. Phase II data on an investigational quadruple therapy regimen combining daclatasvir, asunaprevir, alfa interferon and ribarvirin, and first-time interim Phase IIb results on peginterferon lambda-1a in combination with daclatasvir and ribavirin were also presented. FOURTH QUARTER BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT UPDATE In November, the Company and its partner, Pfizer, announced a clinical collaboration agreement with Portola Pharmaceuticals to conduct a proof-of-concept study of PRT4445, a universal Factor Xa inhibitor antidote, and Eliquis, an oral Factor Xa inhibitor. In December, the Company announced a global license agreement and two-year collaboration with The Medicines Company under which The Medicines Company will assume responsibility for the worldwide sales, distribution, marketing, and regulatory activities for Recothrom®, the surgical hemostat product Bristol-Myers Squibb acquired in 2010 through its acquisition of ZymoGenetics. 2013 FINANCIAL GUIDANCE Bristol-Myers Squibb is setting its 2013 GAAP EPS guidance range from $1.54 to $1.64 and its non-GAAP EPS guidance range from $1.78 to $1.88. Both GAAP and non-GAAP guidance assume current exchange rates. Key 2013 non-GAAP guidance assumptions include: Worldwide sales between $16.2 billion and $17.0 billion. Full-year gross margin as a percentage of sales between 72% and 73%. Advertising and promotion expense increasing in the high single digit range. Marketing, sales and administrative expenses remaining flat versus last year. Research and development expenses growing in the low-single-digit range. An effective tax rate of approximately 16%. It is estimated that 30% to 40% of the research and development expenses in 2013 will be incurred on late-stage development programs. Total research and development expenses include the costs of discovery research, preclinical development, early- and late-clinical development and drug formulation, as well as clinical trials and medical support of marketed products, proportionate allocations of enterprise-wide costs, and other appropriate costs. Late-stage development expenses refer to our investigational compounds that are in Phase III clinical development and our marketed products that are in Phase III development for additional indications or formulations. The financial guidance for 2013 excludes the impact of any potential strategic acquisitions and divestitures, and any specified items that have not yet been identified and quantified. The non-GAAP 2013 guidance also excludes other specified items as discussed under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information." Details reconciling adjusted non-GAAP amounts with the amounts reflecting specified items are provided in supplemental materials available on the Company's website. Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP earnings and related earnings per share information. These measures are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, significant gains and losses and other specified items. Among the items in GAAP measures but excluded for purposes of determining adjusted earnings and other adjusted measures are: restructuring and other exit costs; accelerated depreciation charges; IPRD and asset impairments; charges and recoveries relating to significant legal proceedings; upfront, milestone and other licensing payments for in-licensing of products that have not achieved regulatory approval which are immediately expensed; net amortization of acquired intangible assets and deferred income related to Amylin; pension settlement charges; and significant tax events. This information is intended to enhance an investor's overall understanding of the company's past financial performance and prospects for the future. Non-GAAP financial measures provide the company and its investors with an indication of the company's baseline performance before items that are considered by the company not to be reflective of the company's ongoing results. The company uses non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP marketing, selling and administrative expense, non-GAAP research and development expense, and non-GAAP other income and expense measures to set internal budgets, manage costs, allocate resources, and plan and forecast future periods. Non-GAAP effective tax rate measures are primarily used to plan and forecast future periods. Non-GAAP earnings and earnings per share measures are primary indicators the company uses as a basis for evaluating company performance, setting incentive compensation targets, and planning and forecasting of future periods. This information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
