GOOD PROGRESS: INCREASING GROWTH AND STRONG OPERATIONAL LEVERAGE IN Q2

  • Product sales growth increased to 7% year on year as expected
  • Non GAAP Operating Income +8% reflecting strong operating leverage in Q2 2013 and year to date
  • Non GAAP earnings per ADS +6%, held back by the timing of quarterly tax charges

EXECUTING OUR STRATEGY

  • Further enhanced organic growth and improved operating margins
  • Progression of our late stage pipeline addressing unmet needs including:
    • Lifitegrast for dry eye disease and LDX for binge eating and major depressive disorders
    • Continued but focused R&D investment in other development opportunities
    • Focus on growth and value-driving business development
    • Good progress integrating three divisions into a simplified 'One Shire' organization to create operating leverage, drive fast decisions and focus on growth-driving products

    Flemming Ornskov, M.D., Chief Executive Officer, commented:

    "We are pleased with our Q2 results, have made good progress and have returned to higher growth.

    We're successfully executing our strategy, which is to grow by focusing on innovation-driven specialty products through both R&D and M&A. We've sharpened our focus on commercial excellence and we're enhancing our pipeline productivity. Our late Phase 3 projects lifitegrast and LDX for BED are progressing well and are programs in which we have increasing confidence.

    Our strategy has been designed to deliver further enhanced growth. We anticipate delivering full year double digit Non GAAP earnings growth in 2013 and are confident in our ability to grow operating margins going forward."

    • Product sales in Q2 2013 were $1,230 million, up 7% when compared against a strong set of comparatives in Q2 2012. On a Constant Exchange Rate ("CER") basis, which is a Non GAAP measure, product sales were up 8%.

    Six of our top ten products delivered double digit growth: VYVANSE® (up 13% to $300 million), ELAPRASE® (up 22% to $149 million), LIALDA®/MEZAVANT® (up 46% to $138 million), INTUNIV® (up 31% to $90 million), PENTASA® (up 15% to $74 million), and FIRAZYR®(up 56% to $50 million).

    LIALDA/MEZAVANT sales in Q2 2013 were particularly strong due in part to new managed care contracts in the US. ELAPRASE sales in Q2 2013 benefited from the timing of shipments to markets with large infrequent orders.

    Growth in total product sales was moderated by DERMAGRAFT® (down 57% to $22 million), ADDERALL XR® (down 16% to $112 million) and REPLAGAL® (down 7% to $114 million; down  5% on a CER basis). Q2 2013 sales for all three products compare against strong prior year comparatives that will ease over the second half of the year.

    The return of competition to the Fabry market in Europe was a factor in the lower REPLAGAL product sales, as was the timing of shipments which have distorted quarter on quarter growth rates in both 2013 and 2012. However, recent positive trends in patient dynamics indicate that the impact of switches to the competitor product is diminishing and we continue to see strong growth in the number of new naïve patients starting on REPLAGAL globally. Sales of $114 million in Q2 2013 were flat against Q1 2013 and we expect similar levels in Q3 2013 with sequential growth in the final quarter of the year.

    • Total revenues were up 6% to $1,275 million (Q2 2012: $1,208 million) as the growth in product sales was partially offset, as expected, by lower royalties, particularly from ADDERALL XR.
    • On a Non GAAP basis:

    Operating income was up 8% to $452 million (Q2 2012: $420 million), reflecting further operating leverage as total operating costs increased at a lower rate (up 4%) than total revenues. Research and Development expenditure was up 15% as we continue to progress a number of promising pipeline programs. The increase was moderated by lower Selling, General and Administrative expenditure (down 5%) as we focus on simplifying our business, delivering efficient growth and with that enhanced margins.

    On a US GAAP basis:

    Operating income was up 13% to $342 million (Q2 2012: $302 million) as the good underlying operating leverage in Q2 2013 further benefited from lower legal and litigation costs and lower impairment charges, only partially offset by higher reorganization and acquisition costs compared to the prior year.

    • Non GAAP diluted earnings per American Depository Share ("ADS") increased 6% to $1.79 (Q2 2012: $1.68) as higher Non GAAP operating income was partially offset by a higher effective tax rate on Non GAAP income of 23% (Q2 2012: 20%).

    On a US GAAP basis, diluted earnings per ADS increased 10% to $1.36 (Q2 2012: $1.24), due to higher US GAAP operating income partially offset by a higher US GAAP effective tax rate of 22% (Q2 2012: 18%).

    • Cash generation, a Non GAAP measure, was 28% lower at $374 million (Q2 2012: $520 million) due to timing of receipts from large distributors in the US and operating expenses payments in Q2 2013 as compared to Q2 2012. In addition cash generation in Q2 2012 benefited from significant cash receipts from government-supported healthcare providers in Spain.

    Free cash flow, also a Non GAAP measure, decreased by 44% to $241 million (Q2 2012: $433 million) primarily due to the lower cash generation and the effect of higher cash tax payments in Q2 2013 as compared to Q2 2012.

    On a US GAAP basis, net cash provided by operating activities was down 44% to $259 million (Q2 2012: $466 million).

     

    OUTLOOK

    As we look forward to the remainder of the year, we anticipate delivering full year double digit Non GAAP earnings growth in 2013.

    Based on our actual results to date and anticipated trends for the remainder of the year, we continue to expect full year product sales growth in the mid-to-high single digits. We expect the rate of product sales growth, as previously guided, to show improvement over the balance of the year as our portfolio continues to deliver growth and we benefit from an easing of comparatives in the second half.

    We have narrowed our estimates for royalties and other revenues, which are now expected to be 35-40% lower than 2012.

    Our Non GAAP gross margin is expected to remain at a similar level to 2012.

    We continue to invest behind our promising pipeline and to progress our late stage clinical trials. Non GAAP R&D in 2013 is now expected to grow in the low double digits as compared to the full year 2012.

    Whilst we expect to see a higher level of Non GAAP SG&A in the second half compared to the first half of 2013 as we increase commercial investment behind VYVANSE, we now anticipate Non GAAP SG&A for the full year to be 2-4% lower than 2012.

    We now expect combined Non GAAP R&D and SG&A to be only marginally higher than in 2012, supporting operating leverage for the full year.

    Our core effective tax rate on Non GAAP income is anticipated to remain in the range of 18-20%.

    As we look forward to the remainder of the year, we anticipate delivering full year double digit Non GAAP earnings growth in 2013.

     

    SECOND QUARTER 2013 AND RECENT PIPELINE DEVELOPMENTS

    Pipeline

    INTUNIV - for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ("ADHD") in Canada

    • On July 5, 2013 Shire received approval from Health Canada for INTUNIV XR[TM] (guanfacine hydrochloride extended-release tablets) as monotherapy for the treatment of ADHD in children aged 6 to 12 years and as adjunctive therapy to psychostimulants for the treatment of ADHD in children, aged 6 to 12 years, with a sub-optimal response to psychostimulants. The targeted launch date is November 2013.

    SPD602 - for the treatment of transfusion-dependent iron overload

    • In June 2013 data from an on-going  phase 2 study was presented at the 18th Congress of the European Hematology Association.  Seventy-two-week data  in patients with hereditary anemias indicate that the safety, tolerability and efficacy profile of SPD602 supports its continued development. Full data from the ongoing phase 2 proof-of-concept program will be available mid-2014.

    SPD557 - for the treatment of refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease ("rGERD")

    • This program has been discontinued following review of headline data from the proof-of-concept study which did not support continued development.

    SPD554 (selective ?2A agonist) - for the treatment of various central nervous system disorders

    • This program has been discontinued as part of ongoing portfolio prioritization assessments.

    OTHER DEVELOPMENTS

    Legal Proceedings

    LIALDA patent litigation

    • On May 9, 2013 Shire announced that it had prevailed in its litigation against Watson Pharmaceuticals Inc., Watson Laboratories, Inc.-Florida, Watson Pharma, Inc. and Watson Laboratories, Inc. (collectively "Watson", now "Actavis") in connection with their ANDA for a generic version of Shire's LIALDA. Following a bench trial, the US Court for the Southern District of Florida upheld the validity of US Patent No. 6,773,720 and ruled that the proposed generic product infringes that patent. Actavis has appealed this ruling to the Court of Appeals of the Federal Circuit.

    Share Buy-Back Program

    • In Q4 2012 Shire commenced a share buy-back program, for the purpose of returning funds to shareholders, of up to $500 million, through both direct purchases of Ordinary Shares and through the purchase of Ordinary Shares underlying American Depositary Receipts. As of July 24, 2013 Shire had made on-market repurchases totaling 9,567,253 Ordinary Shares at a cost of $289.9 million (excluding transaction costs).

    DIVIDEND

    In respect of the six months ended June 30, 2013 the Board resolved to pay an interim dividend of 3.00 US cents per Ordinary Share (2012: 2.73 US cents per Ordinary Share).

    Dividend payments will be made in Pounds Sterling to holders of Ordinary Shares and in US Dollars to holders of ADSs. A dividend of 1.95 pence per Ordinary Share (an increase of 12% compared to 2012: 1.74 pence) and 9.00 US cents per ADS (an increase of 10% compared to 2012: 8.19 US cents) will be paid on October 3, 2013 to shareholders on the register as at the close of business on September 6, 2013.

    (3)      IMS NPA Data not available.

    (4)      Not sold in the US in Q2 2013.

    VYVANSE - ADHD

    VYVANSE product sales showed strong growth (up 13%) in Q2 2013 compared to Q2 2012, primarily as a result of higher prescription demand (up 7%) and to a lesser extent the effect of a price increase taken since Q2 2012, the benefit of which was partially offset by higher destocking in Q2 2013 compared to Q2 2012.

    ELAPRASE- Hunter syndrome

    Product sales from ELAPRASE in Q2 2013 were up 22% (up 25% on a CER basis) compared to Q2 2012 primarily due to the impact of the timing of large orders to certain markets which order less frequently, in addition to underlying growth in patient numbers.

    LIALDA/MEZAVANT - Ulcerative Colitis

    Product sales for LIALDA/MEZAVANT in Q2 2013 were up 46%. New Managed Care contracts in the US contributed to increased prescription demand (up 17%) and stocking in Q2 2013 (compared to destocking in Q2 2012). To a lesser extent sales also benefited from the effect of a price increase taken since Q2 2012.

    REPLAGAL - Fabry disease

    REPLAGAL sales were down 7% (down  5% on a CER basis) as compared to Q2 2012 partly due to the return of competition to the Fabry market in Europe and the timing of shipments which have distorted quarter on quarter growth rates in both 2013 and 2012. However, recent positive trends in patient dynamics indicate that the impact of switches to the competitor product is diminishing and we continue to see strong growth in the number of new naïve patients starting on REPLAGAL globally. Sales of $114.1 million in Q2 2013 were flat against Q1 2013 and we expect similar levels in Q3 2013 with sequential growth in the final quarter of the year.

    ADDERALL XR - ADHD

    ADDERALL XR product sales decreased (down 16%) in Q2 2013 primarily as a result of lower US prescription demand (down 11%) following the introduction of a new generic competitor in June 2012 and the effect of higher sales deductions as a percentage of sales in Q2 2013 compared to Q2 2012.

    INTUNIV - ADHD

    The strong growth in INTUNIV product sales (up 31%) in Q2 2013 was driven by both growth in US prescription demand (up 10%) and the effect of price increases taken since Q2 2012.

    VPRIV - Gaucher disease

    VPRIV product sales were flat (up 1% on a CER basis) in Q2 2013, reflecting the relatively strong quarterly sales seen in Q2 2012 which benefited from higher US volumes and the timing of orders to Latin America. The number of patients on therapy continues to grow.

    PENTASA - Ulcerative Colitis

    PENTASA product sales (up 15%) benefited from both price increases taken since Q2 2012 and the impact of moderate stocking in Q2 2013 compared to a small amount of pipeline destocking in Q2 2012.

    FIRAZYR - Hereditary Angioedema

    FIRAZYR product sales (up 56%) showed strong growth reflecting the continuing global growth of the product, particularly in the US market.

    DERMAGRAFT - Diabetic Foot Ulcers

    DERMAGRAFT product sales grew by 21% compared to Q1 2013 but were down 57% compared to Q2 2012.  

    2.    Royalties

    Year on year growth
    Royalties to
    Product Shire $M Royalties CER
    3TC(R) and ZEFFIX(R) 1.00 11.3 +7% +8%

    Other 1.00 9.3 +33% +29%
    Total 1.00 36.3 -36% -35%
    

    Royalties from ADDERALL XR in Q2 2013 were significantly impacted by both reduced sales volume and a lower royalty rate being payable to Shire by Impax Laboratories, Inc. for its authorised generic product following the launch of a new generic product in June 2012.

    R&D (Non GAAP) 235.9 19% 205.2 18%
    

    Non GAAP R&D increased by $30.7 million, or 15%, due to the continued investment in our R&D pipeline, primarily on non-ADHD programs for LDX, on SPD602 for iron overload and the impact of development programs acquired through business development in 2013.

    US GAAP R&D increased by $21.5 million, or 9%, a lower rate of increase than on a Non GAAP basis primarily due to lower impairment charges of IPR&D intangible assets acquired through Movetis N.V. ("Movetis"), compared to Q2 2012.

    SG&A (Non GAAP) 390.4 32% 409.6 36%
    

    Non GAAP SG&A decreased by $19.2 million, or 5%, due to our continuing focus on simplifying our business and delivering efficient growth.

    US GAAP SG&A decreased by $53.4 million, or 10%, a higher rate of decrease than on a Non GAAP basis primarily due to higher legal and litigation costs incurred in Q2 2012, as compared to Q2 2013.

    Gain on sale of product rights

    For the three months to June 30, 2013 Shire recorded a gain on sale of product rights of $4.5 million (2012: $3.6 million) following re-measurement of the contingent consideration receivable from the divestment of DAYTRANA®.

    Reorganization costs

    For the three months to June 30, 2013 Shire recorded reorganization costs of $26.4 million (Q2 2012: $nil) primarily relating to the "One Shire" reorganization as we transition to a new operating structure. The charges in Q2 2013 primarily related to property costs arising from the decisions to not relocate to a new site in Pennsylvania and to limit the site expansion in San Diego to manufacturing facilities only.

    Integration and acquisition costs

    For the three months to June 30, 2013 Shire recorded integration and acquisition costs of $17.4 million primarily associated with the acquisitions of SARcode Biosciences Inc. ("SARcode") and Lotus Tissue Repair, Inc. ("Lotus") in addition to charges related to the change in fair value of contingent consideration. In Q2 2012 integration and acquisition costs ($7.1 million) primarily related to the acquisition of FerroKin Biosciences, Inc. ("FerroKin") and integration of Advanced BioHealing Inc. ("ABH").

    Interest expense

    For the three months to June 30, 2013 Shire incurred interest expense of $8.9 million (Q2 2012: $9.6 million). Interest expense in Q2 2013 principally relates to the coupon on Shire's $1,100 million 2.75% convertible bonds due 2014.

    Taxation

    The effective rate of tax on Non GAAP income in Q2 2013 was 23% (Q2 2012: 20%), and on a US GAAP basis the effective rate of tax was 22% (Q2 2012: 18%).

    The effective rate of tax in Q2 2013 on both a Non GAAP and US GAAP basis is higher than the same period in 2012 due primarily to changes in both profit mix and estimates of the amount of certain tax liabilities following the finalisation of various tax returns. In addition, on a US GAAP basis, the effective rate of tax is further increased by the impact of higher integration and acquisition costs in Q2 2013 which are not deductible for tax purposes. Our core Non GAAP tax rate guidance for 2013 remains at 18% to 20%.

    FORWARD - LOOKING STATEMENTS - "SAFE HARBOR" STATEMENT UNDER THE PRIVATE SECURITIES LITIGATION REFORM ACT OF 1995

    Statements included in this announcement that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements. 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, that:

    • Shire's products may not be a commercial success;
    • revenues from ADDERALL XR are subject to generic erosion;
    • the failure to obtain and maintain reimbursement, or an adequate level of reimbursement, by third-party payors in a timely manner for Shire's products may impact future revenues and earnings;
    • Shire relies on a single source for manufacture of certain of its products and a disruption to the supply chain for those 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;
    • Shire uses third party manufacturers to manufacture many of its products and is reliant upon third party contractors for certain goods and services, and any inability of these third party manufacturers to manufacture products, or any failure of these third party contractors to provide these goods and services, in each case in accordance with its respective contractual obligations, could adversely affect Shire's ability to manage its manufacturing processes or to operate its business;
    • the development, approval and manufacturing of Shire's products is subject to extensive oversight by various regulatory agencies and regulatory approvals or interventions associated with changes to manufacturing sites, ingredients or manufacturing processes could lead to significant delays, increase in operating costs, lost product sales, an interruption of research activities or the delay of new product launches;
    • the actions of certain customers could affect Shire's ability to sell or market products profitably and fluctuations in buying or distribution patterns by such customers could adversely impact Shire's revenues, financial conditions or results of operations;
    • 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 the distraction of senior management, significant legal costs and the payment of substantial compensation or fines;
    • adverse outcomes in legal matters and other disputes, including Shire's ability to obtain, maintain, enforce and defend patents and other intellectual property rights required for its business, could have a material adverse effect on Shire's revenues, financial condition or results of operations;

    and other risks and uncertainties detailed from time to time in Shire's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K.

    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; effectivetax rate on Non GAAP income before income taxes and earnings/(losses) of equity method investees ("effective tax rate on Non GAAP income"); Non GAAP cost of product sales; Non GAAP research and development; Non GAAP selling, general and administrative; Non GAAP other income/expense; Non GAAP cash generation; Non GAAP free cash flow and Non GAAP net cash/(debt). These Non GAAP measures exclude the effect of certain cash and non-cash items, that Shire's management believes are not related to the core performance of Shire's business.

    These Non GAAP financial measures are used by Shire's management to make operating decisions because they facilitate internal comparisons of Shire's performance to historical results and to competitors' results. 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 measures are presented in this press release as Shire's management believe that they will provide investors with a means of evaluating, and an understanding of how Shire's management evaluates, Shire's performance and results on a comparable basis that is not otherwise apparent on a US GAAP basis, since many non-recurring, infrequent or non-cash items that Shire's management believe are not indicative of the core performance of the business may not be excluded when preparing financial measures under US GAAP.

    These Non GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation from, as substitutes for, or superior to financial measures prepared in accordance with US GAAP.

    Where applicable the following items, including their tax effect, have been excluded when calculating Non GAAP earnings for both 2013 and 2012, 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).

    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 the presentation of 2013 and 2012 Non GAAP earnings.

    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.

    A reconciliation of Non GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable measure under US GAAP is presented on pages 19 to 23.

    Growth at CER, which is a Non GAAP measure, is computed by restating 2013 results using average 2012 foreign exchange rates for the relevant period.

    Average exchange rates for the six months to June 30, 2013 were $1.55:£1.00 and $1.31:?1.00 (2012: $1.58:£1.00 and $1.31:?1.00). Average exchange rates for Q2 2013 were $1.53:£1.00 and $1.30:?1.00 (2012: $1.59:£1.00 and $1.30:?1.00).
