(1) Percentages compare to equivalent 2013 period. The 2013 comparatives in this release have been recast to exclude the DERMAGRAFT® business from continuing operations following its divestment on January 17, 2014.

The Non GAAP financial measures included within this release are explained on page 22, and are reconciled to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with US GAAP on pages 19 - 21.

Flemming Ornskov, M.D., Shire's Chief Executive Officer, commented:  

"I'm pleased with our strong first quarter results. Our sharpened strategy, the addition of CINRYZE from the ViroPharma acquisition and our continued focus on operational discipline have all contributed to this strong financial performance and our ability to drive further future growth.  We have multiple drivers of growth within our portfolio.

Sales in ADHD were driven by strong performance of VYVANSE (up 18%). Our US prescription growth was in line with the overall market growth. We believe we can significantly increase our Neuroscience revenue through developing a treatment option in the growing adult market, expanding our international sales and progressing a potential new indication in Binge Eating Disorder.

LIALDA continues to grow (up 28%) and has very positive sales and prescription momentum, carrying on the outstanding performance from 2013 with total US prescriptions up 33% on the prior year and an increase in market share of eight percentage points in the past twelve months.

Our Rare Diseases products delivered good sales growth this quarter; we're pleased with FIRAZYR's strong performance (up 80%) and the $86 million contribution to product sales from CINRYZE in the first two months since the ViroPharma acquisition closed.

The integration of ViroPharma is progressing well and we are on target to deliver the previously estimated cost synergies by the end of 2015.

We're excited about the growing value in our innovative pipeline. We'll shortly be meeting with the FDA to determine our next steps with lifitegrast. We continue to advance our intrathecal enzyme replacement therapy program for rare pediatric CNS diseases. In addition, the ViroPharma acquisition brought us the Phase 2 program for maribavir, an investigational treatment under development for cytomegalovirus infection in transplant patients, as well as several potential new uses for CINRYZE. And, our acquisition of Fibrotech adds FT011, a small molecule targeting an innovative, novel mechanism of action, currently in a Phase 1B study in patients with renal impairment, and a Phase 2 study in patients with FSGS, a rare kidney disease, is planned.

Our strong financial performance and business progress this quarter gives us the confidence to increase our guidance for the full year 2014 and we now expect to deliver Non GAAP earnings per ADS growth in the mid-to-high twenty percent range."

FINANCIAL SUMMARY  

First Quarter 2014 Unaudited Results  



Q1 2014 Q1 2013
US GAAP Adjustments Non GAAP US GAAP Adjustments Non GAAP
$M $M $M $M $M $M
Total revenues 1,347 - 1,347 1,143 - 1,143
Operating income 307 284 591 362 59 421

Diluted earnings
per ADS $1.17 $1.19 $2.36 $0.37 $1.35 $1.72
  • Product sales grew strongly in Q1 2014 (up 19% to $1,308 million from $1,098 million in Q1 2013). Product sales in Q1 2014 included $93 million for products acquired with ViroPharma Incorporated ("ViroPharma"), including $86 million from CINRYZE®. The inclusion of ViroPharma contributed eight percentage points to our reported product sales growth.
    Excluding products acquired with ViroPharma, product sales grew 11%, driven by VYVANSE® (up 18% to $351 million), LIALDA®/MEZAVANT® (up 28% to $129 million), ELAPRASE® (up 13% to $129 million) and FIRAZYR®(up 80% to $75 million).
  • Total revenues were up 18% to $1,347 million (Q1 2013: $1,143 million), with the growth in product sales being partially offset by lower royalties and other revenues (down 14%).
  • On a Non GAAP basis:

    Operating income grew strongly in Q1 2014, up 40% to $591 million (Q1 2013: $421 million) due to higher total revenues (up 18%) and lower combined Research and Development ("R&D") and Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A") costs (down 3%). R&D costs were down 13% following the completion of several large Phase 3 programs since Q1 2013 including new uses for LDX([1]), the effect of portfolio prioritization decisions taken during 2013 and lower overheads due to the One Shire reorganization, partially offset by the inclusion of ViroPharma R&D costs. SG&A costs increased by 4%, an increase wholly attributable to the inclusion of ViroPharma SG&A costs for the first time in Q1 2014.

    On a US GAAP basis (from continuing operations):

    Operating income was down 15% to $307 million (Q1 2013: $362 million), as Q1 2014 included an impairment charge of $166 million in respect of our in-process R&D ("IPR&D") intangible asset for SHP602, higher intangible asset amortization charges and the unwind of the inventory fair value step-up resulting from the ViroPharma acquisition. Combined R&D and SG&A was up 29% with R&D up 63% and SG&A up 10% as compared with Q1 2013.
  • Non GAAP diluted earnings per American Depository Share ("ADS") increased 38% to $2.36 (Q1 2013: $1.72) primarily due to the higher Non GAAP operating income.

    On a US GAAP basis, diluted earnings per ADS increased 218% to $1.17 (Q1 2013: $0.37), as lower losses from discontinued operations (Q1 2013 included goodwill impairment charges of $192 million) more than offset lower US GAAP operating income from continuing operations.
  • Cash generation, a Non GAAP measure, was up 29% to $331 million (Q1 2013: $257 million). Higher cash receipts from product sales were partially offset by higher payments for sales deductions, the One Shire reorganization and the costs related to the acquisition and integration of ViroPharma.
    Free cash flow, also a Non GAAP measure, was up 104% to $231 million (Q1 2013: $113 million) due to higher cash generation and lower cash tax and capital expenditure payments in the quarter.

    On a US GAAP basis, net cash provided by operating activities was up 53% to $246 million (Q1 2013: $160 million).
  • Net debt, also a Non GAAP measure, at March 31, 2014 was $1,413 million (December 31, 2013: net cash of $2,231 million).

    On a US GAAP basis, cash and cash equivalents were $139 million at March 31, 2014 (December 31, 2013: $2,239 million).

--------------------------------------------------

1.) Lisdexamfetamine ("LDX") currently marketed as VYVANSE in the US & Canada, VENVANSE® in Latin America and ELVANSE® in certain territories in the EU.

 

OUTLOOK  

Reflecting our strong start to the year, we are increasing our guidance for Non GAAP earnings per ADS to mid-to-high twenty percent growth for the full year 2014, (previous guidance: growth at a similar level to 2013) (2013: up 23%). This guidance reflects the contribution from the ViroPharma acquisition for the eleven months post closing.

We expect our operating costs to continue to benefit from our reorganization efforts and the focus on operational discipline shown in the first quarter. As a result we now anticipate combined Non GAAP R&D and SG&A to grow by 4-6% compared to 2013 (previous guidance: growth of 6-8%).

We expect to see higher Combined Non GAAP R&D and SG&A in the remaining quarters of 2014 than seen in the first quarter, as we continue to invest behind our pipeline and new acquisitions, including Fibrotech Therapeutics Pty Ltd ("Fibrotech"). The balance of the year will also see us increase our commercial spending on the preparation for the anticipated launch of SHP465 in the US and XAGRID in Japan, Binge Eating Disorder disease awareness investments and the continued international expansion of VYVANSE.

All other elements of our guidance remain unchanged, and we continue to expect:

  • Full year 2014 product sales growth in the mid-to-high teens.
  • Royalties and other revenues to be 10-15% lower than 2013.
  • Non GAAP gross margin to be approximately 1 percentage point lower than in 2013, due to slight dilution from ViroPharma.
  • Net interest expense to be at a similar level to 2013.
  • Core effective tax rate on Non GAAP income in the range of 18-20%.

Taken together, we are increasing our guidance for the full year 2014 and we now expect to deliver Non GAAP earnings per ADS growth in the mid-to-high twenty percent range.

FIRST QUARTER 2014 AND RECENT PRODUCT AND PIPELINE DEVELOPMENTS  

Products  

INTUNIV® - for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ("ADHD") in children/adolescents

  • On March 27, 2014 Shire announced the acceptance of submission of a Marketing Authorization Application by the European Medicines Agency for its once-daily, non-stimulant guanfacine extended release product for the treatment of ADHD in children/adolescents aged 6-17 years.

Pipeline  

Shire continues to invest in its valuable pipeline, which now includes many exciting potential products.  Following the completion of the acquisition of ViroPharma in January which added a number of new programs, Shire believes it will be helpful this quarter to provide a more detailed than usual summary of the developments in its pipeline:

SHP465 for the treatment of ADHD

  • SHP465 (mixed salts of a single entity amphetamine) capsules provide an extended-release of amphetamines to provide coverage of ADHD symptoms for adults throughout the day. Based on the US Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") feedback received on April 25, 2014, Shire is planning to resubmit the SHP465 New Drug Application ("NDA") as a Class 2 resubmission with a six month FDA review time. SHP465, if approved, will be a once daily, product designed to treat ADHD in adults, with statistically significant endpoints at 16 hours post-dose (statistically significant endpoints in clinical trials beginning at the 4-hour time point).

SHP 606 lifitegrast for the treatment of Dry Eye disease

  • Shire continues to evaluate the lifitegrast clinical program in whole, examining the totality of evidence and will engage in a pre-NDA meeting with FDA regarding next steps. The totality of data encompasses all efficacy studies conducted to date, one Phase 2 study and two Phase 3 studies (OPUS-1 and OPUS-2, with top-line results announced in the fourth quarter of 2013).

    On April 30, 2014 Shire announced top-line results from the prospective, randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled SONATA trial which indicated no ocular or drug-related serious adverse events. The safety data indicated in the SONATA trial was entirely consistent with that observed in the Phase 2, OPUS-1 and OPUS-2 studies. Additional data and analyses will be submitted for presentation at upcoming medical meetings.

CINRYZE life cycle management and new uses

  • Shire is pursuing additional new formulations of CINRYZE for routine prophylaxis against Hereditary Angioedema ("HAE") attacks in adolescent and adult patients.  Shire plans to initiate discussions with FDA in H2 2014 to determine the appropriate path forward.  In addition, Shire is further considering opportunities to pursue additional therapeutic indications that may involve the C1 Inhibitor.

SHP620 maribavir for the treatment of cytomegalovirus ("CMV") infection in transplant patients

  • Shire is currently conducting two Phase 2 studies in transplant recipients, both of which are fully enrolled. The first is a 160 patient trial in first-line treatment of asymptomatic CMV in transplant recipients. The second is a 120 patient trial for the treatment of resistant/refractory CMV infection/disease in transplant recipients.  Preliminary results are expected in the first half of 2015.

SHP602 - for the treatment of Iron Overload

  • In March 2014, the SHP602 Phase 2 trial in pediatric and adult patients with transfusion iron overload was placed on clinical hold as Shire evaluates nonclinical toxicology findings. The potential relevance of these findings to humans, if any, is unknown, however this assessment will lead to a delay that will impact the commercial value of this program. Following our decision to put the current trial on clinical hold, an impairment charge relating to the IPR&D intangible asset has been recorded in Q1 2014.

OTHER DEVELOPMENTS  

Proposed acquisition of Fibrotech  

  • On May 1, 2014 Shire entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Fibrotech, a privately held, biotechnology company focused on the development of small molecules for the treatment of renal diseases and fibrosis. The acquisition of Fibrotech strengthens our growing and innovative portfolio targeting renal and fibrotic diseases, and leverages our existing renal capabilities. Shire will make an upfront payment of $75 million and additional contingent payments based on the achievement of development and regulatory milestones.  The closing of the acquisition is subject to customary conditions, including approval of Australia's Foreign Investment Review Board. FT011, the lead molecule, targets an innovative, novel and previously undescribed mechanism of action, which completed a Phase 1A study in healthy volunteers and is currently in a Phase 1B study in patients with renal impairment. The first Phase 2 study is planned to enroll patients with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), a rare fibrotic kidney disease with high unmet medical need. Shire will also explore the application of this technology in other potential fibrotic conditions. Given recent advancements in the scientific understanding of fibrosis, as well as the development of biomarkers to aid in clinical development, it is an exciting time to expand our interest in anti-fibrotic agents with a clinical stage candidate as well as a library of additional novel molecules.

Transfer of CALCICHEW® product rights  

  • In Q1 2014 Shire transferred the marketing authorizations for the CALCICHEW range of products in the UK and Ireland to Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited. From January 1, 2014 Shire no longer recognizes product sales from CALCICHEW. In addition in Q1 2014, Shire sold certain CALCICHEW trade marks to Takeda Nycomed AS ("Takeda") for cash proceeds of $43.5 million and recognized a gain for the same amount.

  3. IMS NPA Data not available.
  4. Not sold in the US in Q1 2014.

VYVANSE - ADHD  

VYVANSE product sales showed strong growth (up 18%) in Q1 2014 compared to Q1 2013 due to price increases taken since Q1 2013 and to a lesser extent higher prescription demand. The benefit of these positive factors was partially offset by destocking in Q1 2014.

LIALDA/MEZAVANT - Ulcerative Colitis  

Product sales for LIALDA/MEZAVANT in Q1 2014 were up 28% primarily due to higher US prescription demand (up 33%), as LIALDA reached a US exit market share of 30%, and to a lesser extent the effect of a price increase taken since Q1 2013. These positive factors were partially offset by higher sales deductions as a percentage of product sales as compared to Q1 2013 and approximately $10 million of destocking in Q1 2014.

ELAPRASE- Hunter syndrome  

ELAPRASE product sales in Q1 2014 were up 13% compared to Q1 2013 driven by continued growth in the number of treated patients.

REPLAGAL - Fabry disease  

REPLAGAL sales were flat compared to Q1 2013 as slight volume growth was offset by lower pricing.  We continue to see good growth in emerging markets and steady volume demand in Europe.

VPRIV - Gaucher disease  

VPRIV product sales in Q1 2014 were up 6% compared to Q1 2013 driven by continued growth in the number of treated patients.

CINRYZE - for the prophylactic treatment of HAE   

Shire acquired CINRYZE through its acquisition of ViroPharma on January 24, 2014 and CINRYZE achieved product sales of $85.6 million in the first two months post acquisition. On a proforma basis CINRYZE grew 16% on Q1 2013 primarily driven by an increase in the number of patients on therapy.

ADDERALL XR - ADHD  

ADDERALL XR product sales decreased (down 15%) in Q1 2014 primarily due to slightly lower demand and higher sales deductions as a percentage of sales as compared to Q1 2013. Market share has remained relatively stable over the past six months and we expect ADDERALL XR to remain competitive in its market.

INTUNIV - ADHD  

The growth in INTUNIV product sales (up 6%) in Q1 2014 was driven by a combination of price increases taken since Q1 2013 and higher US prescription demand. The benefit of these positive factors was offset by higher sales deductions as a percentage of product sales in Q1 2014.

FIRAZYR - for the treatment of acute HAE attacks  

FIRAZYR product sales growth (up 80%) was primarily due to growth in patients on therapy, the effect of a price increase and a higher number of treated attacks particularly in the US market.

PENTASA - Ulcerative Colitis  

PENTASA product sales (up 2%) benefited from higher stocking compared to Q1 2013, partially offset by higher sales deductions as a percentage of product sales in Q1 2014 as compared to Q1 2013.

2.    Royalties

inventory fair value step-up (38.8) -
Depreciation (10.2) (7.1)
Cost of product sales (Non GAAP) 180.5 14% 140.3 13%

Non GAAP cost of product sales as a percentage of product sales increased marginally in Q1 2014 reflecting the inclusion of CINRYZE.

US GAAP cost of product sales as a percentage of product sales was five percentage points higher than the same period in 2013, as Q1 2014 included charges of $38.8 million on the unwind of the fair value adjustment on acquired ViroPharma inventories.

R&D

Impairment of intangible
assets (166.0) -
Depreciation (5.8) (4.6)
R&D (Non GAAP) 188.7 14% 216.0 20%

Non GAAP R&D decreased by $27.3 million, or 13% in Q1 2014, following the completion of several large Phase 3 programs since Q1 2013 including new uses for LDX, the effect of portfolio prioritization decisions taken during 2013 and lower overheads due to the One Shire reorganization, partially offset by the inclusion of ViroPharma R&D costs.

US GAAP R&D increased by $139.9 million, or 63%, as Q1 2014 included impairment charges relating to the SHP602 IPR&D intangible asset currently on clinical hold.

SG&A

Legal and litigation costs (1.7) (1.6)
Depreciation (20.8) (16.1)
SG&A (Non GAAP) 350.0 27% 337.9 31%

Non GAAP SG&A increased by $12.1 million, or 4%, an increase wholly attributable to the inclusion of ViroPharma SG&A costs for the first time in Q1 2014. SG&A as a percentage of product sales decreased compared to Q1 2013 as we benefited from the One Shire reorganization and the focus on operational discipline in Q1 2014.

US GAAP SG&A increased by $38.6 million, or 10%, as compared to Q1 2013.

Gain on sale of product rights  

For the three months to March 31, 2014 Shire recorded a net gain on sale of product rights of $36.4 million (2013: $6.5 million), primarily a gain of $43.5 million on the sale of certain CALCICHEW trade marks to Takeda, partially offset by the re-measurement of the contingent consideration receivable from the divestment of DAYTRANA®.

Reorganization costs  

For the three months to March 31, 2014 Shire recorded reorganization costs of $49.4 million (Q1 2013:  $17.5 million), which in 2014 related to the One Shire reorganization as we implement our new operating structure.

Integration and acquisition costs  

For the three months to March 31, 2014 Shire recorded net charges for integration and acquisition costs of $6.6 million. This net charge includes costs of $65.8 million related to the acquisition and integration of ViroPharma, partially offset by a net credit of $59.2 million relating to the change in fair values of contingent consideration liabilities, principally a credit of $71.9 million relating to the release of contingent consideration liabilities in respect of the acquisition of FerroKin Biosciences, Inc. ("FerroKin").

In Q1 2013 integration and acquisition costs ($4.1 million) primarily related to the acquisition of Lotus Tissue Repair inc. ("Lotus") and the integration of FerroKin.

Interest expense  

For the three months to March 31, 2014 Shire incurred interest expense of $7.8 million (Q1 2013: $9.2 million). Interest expense in Q1 2014 primarily related to interest and amortization of issue costs incurred on borrowings to fund the ViroPharma acquisition. Interest expense in Q1 2013 principally related to the coupon and amortization of issue costs on Shire's convertible bonds which were fully redeemed or converted in Q4 2013.

Taxation  

The effective rate of tax on Non GAAP income in Q1 2014 was 20% (Q1 2013: 20%), and on a US GAAP basis the effective rate of tax was 17% (Q1 2013: 20%).

The effective rate of tax in Q1 2014 on US GAAP income from continuing operations is lower than the same period in 2013 primarily due to the impact of changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities and the gain on sale of product rights which have no tax effect.

Discontinued operations   

The loss from discontinued operations for the three months to March 31, 2014 was $22.7 million net of tax (2013: $216.2 million), primarily relating to costs associated with the divestment of the DERMAGRAFT business. The loss from discontinued operations in Q1 2013 primarily related to the goodwill impairment of the former Regenerative Medicine Business Unit ($191.8 million) and other operating losses of the DERMAGRAFT business.

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

Statements included in this release 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 and revenues from INTUNIV will become subject to generic competition starting in December 2014;
  • 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, financial condition and results of operations;
  • Shire conducts its own manufacturing operations for certain of its Rare Diseases products and is reliant on third party contractors 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 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.  Fluctuations in buying or distribution patterns by such customers can 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 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;
  • Shire faces intense competition for highly qualified personnel from other companies, academic institutions, government entities and other organizations. Shire is undergoing a corporate reorganization and the consequent uncertainty could adversely impact Shire's ability to attract and/or retain the highly skilled personnel needed for Shire to meet its strategic objectives;
  • failure to achieve Shire's strategic objectives with respect to the acquisition of ViroPharma Incorporated may adversely affect Shire's financial condition and results of operations;

and other risks and uncertainties detailed from time to time in Shire's filings with the US 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 R&D; Non GAAP SG&A; 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 director.

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 2014 and 2013, 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 2014 and 2013 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 21.

Growth at CER, which is a Non GAAP measure, is computed by restating 2014 results using average 2013 foreign exchange rates for the relevant period.

Average exchange rates for Q1 2014 were $1.66:£1.00 and $1.37:€1.00 (2013: $1.58:£1.00 and $1.33:€1.00).
