Hospira Reports Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2012 Results07:35 EST Wednesday, February 13, 2013-- Provides 2013 sales and earnings projections --LAKE FOREST, Ill., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hospira, Inc. (NYSE: HSP), the world's leading provider of injectable drugs and infusion technologies, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year ended Dec. 31, 2012. For the fourth quarter of 2012, net sales were $1.1 billion, and adjusted* diluted earnings per share were $0.55. (Adjusted* measures are adjusted for certain specified items as described later in this press release and the attached schedules.) On a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) basis, fourth-quarter 2012 diluted earnings per share were $0.03. For full-year 2012, net sales were $4.1 billion, and adjusted* diluted earnings per share were $2.01. On a GAAP basis, full-year 2012 diluted earnings per share were $0.27. "The fourth quarter concluded a year of significant effort and advancement for Hospira," said F. Michael Ball, chief executive officer. "We made considerable progress on our quality transformation; we advanced our growth initiatives; and we met our financial projections. As we head into 2013, we remain committed to reinforcing our foundation, an area of key focus for the company.  We will continue to advance our remediation activities as well as work to increase supply of the products our customers -- and their patients -- depend on. At the same time, we are forging ahead with our growth expansion initiatives. Our efforts on both of these fronts serve to position Hospira for a stronger future of sustainable, long-term growth -- and to drive greater value for our customers and shareholders."

Driving the majority of the increase were strong net sales of Specialty Injectable Pharmaceutical (SIP) products, including Precedex? globally and the oncolytic oxaliplatin in the United States, as well as higher volumes for certain SIP products in the company's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. Adjusted* income from operations increased 9.7 percent to $122 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $111 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase primarily relates to lower inventory losses associated with quality-related actions compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. Higher year-over-year manufacturing expense and higher research and development (R&D) expense in the fourth quarter of 2012 negatively impacted results. On a GAAP basis, income from operations was $31 million compared to a loss from operations of $212 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. GAAP loss from operations in the fourth quarter of 2011 included the impact of goodwill impairment charges.The effective tax rate on an adjusted basis* in the quarter was an expense of 16.3 percent compared to an expense of 15.2 percent in the fourth-quarter 2011. The increase is primarily related to a shift in earnings mix to higher tax jurisdictions relative to the fourth quarter of 2011. On a GAAP basis, the fourth-quarter 2012 effective tax rate was an expense of 137.5 percent compared to a benefit of 4.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011. The fourth-quarter 2012 effective tax rate on a GAAP basis includes an expense related to the effective settlement of a U.S. federal tax audit.Full-Year 2012 ResultsThe following table highlights selected financial results for the full-year 2012 compared to the same period in 2011:In $ millions, except per shareamountsGAAPYear EndedDec. 31, %ChangeAdjusted*Year EndedDec. 31,%Change2012201120122011Net Sales $4,092.1$4,057.10.9%n/a   n/a   n/aGross Profit (Net Sales lessCost of Products Sold)$1,113.4$1,397.6(20.3)%$1,445.9$1,563.5(7.5)%Income from Operations$58.8$56.83.5%$455.6$668.6(31.9)%Diluted Earnings (Loss) perShare$0.27$(0.06)550.0%$2.01$3.04(33.9)%Statistics (as a % of Net Sales)Gross Profit (Net Sales lessCost of Products Sold)27.2%34.4%35.3%38.5%Income from Operations1.4%1.4%11.1%16.5%Net sales increased 0.9 percent to $4.1 billion for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012. Strong net sales of certain SIP products, including Precedex, were mostly offset by the impact to supply of the company's quality-related actions and the impact of foreign exchange. Adjusted* income from operations decreased 31.9 percent to $456 million for the full year of 2012, compared to $669 million for the full year of 2011. The decrease primarily reflects the full-year impact of higher manufacturing expense associated with the company's quality-related actions, which were accelerated beginning in the third quarter of 2011. In addition, in 2012 the company incurred higher biosimilar clinical spending, as well as higher selling and promotional costs, primarily related to supporting Precedex. On a GAAP basis, full-year 2012 income from operations was $59 million compared to $57 million; affecting the year-over-year comparison was the impact in 2011 of goodwill impairment charges, as well as the impact in 2012 of higher continuous improvement charges and quality-and product-related charges.The full-year 2012 effective tax rate on an adjusted basis* was an expense of 18.3 percent compared to an expense of 20.5 percent in 2011. On a GAAP basis, the 2012 effective tax rate was a benefit of 121.7 percent compared to an expense of 103.0 percent in 2011. The 2012 effective tax rate on a GAAP basis was impacted by certain quality, impairment and restructuring charges incurred in higher-tax-rate jurisdictions, partially offset by an expense related to the effective settlement of a U.S. federal tax audit.Cash Flow Cash flow from operations for full-year 2012 was $478 million, compared to $434 million in 2011. The majority of the increase reflects lower working capital investments in 2012, which more than offset higher operating expenses.Capital expenditures were $290 million for full-year 2012 compared to $291 million in 2011. 2013 Projections Hospira expects net sales growth for full-year 2013 to be in a range of 1 to 3 percent on both a constant-currency and reported basis.Adjusted* diluted earnings per share for 2013 are expected to be in a range of $2.05 to $2.20, representing growth of 2 to 9 percent.The reconciliation between the projected 2013 adjusted* diluted earnings per share and projected GAAP diluted earnings per share follows:Diluted earnings per share -- adjusted*                                                       $2.05 - $2.20Estimated amortization of intangible assets related to certain acquisitions (mid-point of an estimated range of $0.29 to $0.33 per diluted share)                   $(0.31)Estimated charges for certain quality and product-related matters (mid-point of an estimated range of $0.15 to $0.23 per diluted share)              $(0.19)Estimated charges related to capacity expansion (mid-point of an estimated range of $0.15 to $0.19 per diluted share)                        $(0.17)Estimated acquisition and integration-related charges associated with the pending acquisition of an API-related business from Orchid Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals (mid-point of an estimated range of $0.04 to $0.06 per diluted share)               $(0.05)Estimated charges related to facilities optimization (mid-point of an estimated range of $0.00 to $0.02 per diluted share)                                                  $(0.01)Diluted earnings per share -- GAAP                                                            $1.32 - $1.47The adjusting items are shown net of tax in aggregate of $57 million, which is calculated for the specified adjustments stated above, based on the statutory tax rates in the various tax jurisdictions in which the items are expected to occur.The company projects that cash flow from operations in 2013 will range between $350 million and $400 million.

financial measures contained in this press release include comparisons at constant currency rates, which reflect comparative local currency balances at prior period foreign exchange rates.Hospira calculated these percentages by taking current period reported net sales less the respective prior period reported net sales, divided by the prior period reported net sales, all at the respective prior period'sforeign exchange rates. This measure provides information on the change in net sales assuming that foreign currency exchange rates have not changed between the prior and the current period. Managementbelieves the use of this measure aids in the understanding of our change in net sales without the impact of foreign currency and provides greater transparency into Hospira's results of operations. Managementuses these measures internally to monitor business unit performance and in evaluating management performance. These measures are intended to supplement the applicable GAAP measures and should not beconsidered in isolation from or a replacement for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.SOURCE Hospira, Inc.For further information: Media, Stacey Eisen, (224) 212-2276, Tareta Adams, (224) 212-2535, or Financial Community, Karen King, (224) 212-2711, Ruth Venning, (224) 212-2774
