Amgen Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (AMGN) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2018. Key results include:

  • Total revenues increased 4 percent versus the second quarter of 2017 to $6.1 billion.
  • GAAP earnings per share (EPS) increased 20 percent to $3.48 driven by higher product sales, a lower tax rate and lower weighted-average shares outstanding.
  • Non-GAAP EPS increased 17 percent to $3.83 driven by higher product sales, a lower tax rate and lower weighted-average shares outstanding.
  • 2018 EPS guidance revised to $11.83-$12.62 on a GAAP basis and $13.30-$14.00 on a non-GAAP basis; total revenues guidance revised to $22.5-$23.2 billion.
  • The Company generated $1.9 billion of free cash flow in the second quarter versus $2.1 billion in the second quarter of 2017.

"Amgen's strong performance in the second quarter was driven by double-digit, volume-driven growth from our new and recently launched products," said Robert A. Bradway, chairman and chief executive officer. "Our two most recently launched products, Aimovig and Parsabiv, are off to a strong start."

Operating Expense, Operating Margin and Tax Rate Analysis

On a GAAP basis:

  • Total Operating Expenses increased 4 percent due to investments in newer and recently launched products, and all expense categories also reflect savings from our transformation and process improvement efforts. Cost of Sales margin decreased by 0.4 points due to favorable royalty cost and lower acquisition-related intangible amortization, partially offset by higher manufacturing cost and unfavorable product mix. Research & Development (R&D) expenses were flat. Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 12 percent due to investments in product launches and marketed product support.
  • Operating Margin improved by 1.5 percentage points to 49.9 percent.
  • Tax Rate decreased by 2.1 percentage points due to the impacts of U.S. corporate tax reform, offset partially by a prior year benefit associated with the effective settlement of certain state and federal tax matters.

On a non-GAAP basis:

  • Total Operating Expenses increased 7 percent due to investments in newer and recently launched products, and all expense categories also reflect savings from our transformation and process improvement efforts. Cost of Sales margin increased by 0.4 points driven by higher manufacturing cost and unfavorable product mix, partially offset by lower royalty expense. R&D expenses were flat. SG&A expenses increased 14 percent due to investments in product launches and marketed product support.
  • Operating Margin decreased by 0.1 percentage points to 55.1 percent.
  • Tax Rate decreased by 3.2 percentage points due to the impacts of U.S. corporate tax reform, offset partially by a prior year benefit associated with the effective settlement of certain state and federal tax matters.

Second Quarter Product and Pipeline Update
The Company provided the following updates on selected product and pipeline programs:

AimovigTM (erenumab-aooe)

  • In May, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Aimovig for the preventive treatment of migraine in adults.
  • In June, the Company submitted a supplemental Biologics License Application (BLA) to the FDA for the 140 mg Sureclick® autoinjector device and 140 mg prefilled syringe.

KYPROLIS

  • In April, the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) adopted a positive opinion recommending a label variation for KYPROLIS to include the overall survival (OS) data from the Phase 3 ASPIRE trial.
  • In June, the FDA approved the supplemental New Drug Application to add the OS data from the Phase 3 ASPIRE trial to the U.S. Prescribing Information.

BLINCYTO

  • In June, the European Commission (EC) granted a full marketing authorization for BLINCYTO based on the OS data from the Phase 3 TOWER study in adult patients with Philadelphia chromosome-negative relapsed or refractory B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Repatha 

  • In May, the EC approved a new indication for adults with established atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (myocardial infarction, stroke or peripheral arterial disease) to reduce cardiovascular risk by lowering lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels.

Prolia

  • In May and June, the FDA and EC, respectively, approved a new indication for the treatment of glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis in adults.

EVENITYTM (romosozumab)

  • In July, Amgen and UCB announced the resubmission of the BLA to the FDA for the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women at high risk for fracture.

KANJINTITM (ABP 980)

  • In May, the EC granted marketing authorization for KANJINTI, a biosimilar to Herceptin® (trastuzumab), for the treatment of HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer, HER2-positive early breast cancer and HER2-positive metastatic adenocarcinoma of the stomach or gastroesophageal junction.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In this news release, management has presented its operating results for the second quarters of 2018 and 2017, in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and on a non-GAAP basis. In addition, management has presented its full year 2018 EPS and tax rate guidance in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis. These non-GAAP financial measures are computed by excluding certain items related to acquisitions, restructuring and certain other items from the related GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations for these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the news release. Management has also presented Free Cash Flow (FCF), which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for the second quarters of 2018 and 2017. FCF is computed by subtracting capital expenditures from operating cash flow, each as determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to and facilitates additional analysis by investors. The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to enhance an investor's overall understanding of the financial performance and prospects for the future of the Company's ongoing business activities by facilitating comparisons of results of ongoing business operations among current, past and future periods. The Company believes that FCF provides a further measure of the Company's liquidity.

The Company uses the non-GAAP financial measures set forth in the news release in connection with its own budgeting and financial planning internally to evaluate the performance of the business, including to allocate resources and to evaluate results relative to incentive compensation targets. The non-GAAP financial measures are in addition to, not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements
This news release contains forward-looking statements that are based on the current expectations and beliefs of Amgen. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements, including estimates of revenues, operating margins, capital expenditures, cash, other financial metrics, expected legal, arbitration, political, regulatory or clinical results or practices, customer and prescriber patterns or practices, reimbursement activities and outcomes and other such estimates and results. Forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those discussed below and more fully described in the Securities and Exchange Commission reports filed by Amgen, including our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and any subsequent periodic reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K. Unless otherwise noted, Amgen is providing this information as of the date of this news release and does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this document as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

No forward-looking statement can be guaranteed and actual results may differ materially from those we project. Our results may be affected by our ability to successfully market both new and existing products domestically and internationally, clinical and regulatory developments involving current and future products, sales growth of recently launched products, competition from other products including biosimilars, difficulties or delays in manufacturing our products and global economic conditions. In addition, sales of our products are affected by pricing pressure, political and public scrutiny and reimbursement policies imposed by third-party payers, including governments, private insurance plans and managed care providers and may be affected by regulatory, clinical and guideline developments and domestic and international trends toward managed care and healthcare cost containment. Furthermore, our research, testing, pricing, marketing and other operations are subject to extensive regulation by domestic and foreign government regulatory authorities. We or others could identify safety, side effects or manufacturing problems with our products after they are on the market. Our business may be impacted by government investigations, litigation and product liability claims. In addition, our business may be impacted by the adoption of new tax legislation or exposure to additional tax liabilities. If we fail to meet the compliance obligations in the corporate integrity agreement between us and the U.S. government, we could become subject to significant sanctions. Further, while we routinely obtain patents for our products and technology, the protection offered by our patents and patent applications may be challenged, invalidated or circumvented by our competitors, or we may fail to prevail in present and future intellectual property litigation. We perform a substantial amount of our commercial manufacturing activities at a few key facilities and also depend on third parties for a portion of our manufacturing activities, and limits on supply may constrain sales of certain of our current products and product candidate development. In addition, we compete with other companies with respect to many of our marketed products as well as for the discovery and development of new products. Discovery or identification of new product candidates cannot be guaranteed and movement from concept to product is uncertain; consequently, there can be no guarantee that any particular product candidate will be successful and become a commercial product. Further, some raw materials, medical devices and component parts for our products are supplied by sole third-party suppliers. Certain of our distributors, customers and payers have substantial purchasing leverage in their dealings with us. The discovery of significant problems with a product similar to one of our products that implicate an entire class of products could have a material adverse effect on sales of the affected products and on our business and results of operations. Our efforts to acquire other companies or products and to integrate the operations of companies we have acquired may not be successful. A breakdown, cyberattack or information security breach could compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our systems and our data. Our stock price is volatile and may be affected by a number of events. Our business performance could affect or limit the ability of our Board of Directors to declare a dividend or our ability to pay a dividend or repurchase our common stock. We may not be able to access the capital and credit markets on terms that are favorable to us, or at all.

(a)

The adjustments related primarily to non-cash amortization of intangible assets acquired in business combinations.










(b)

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the adjustment related primarily to severance expenses associated with our restructuring initiative.










(c)

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the adjustment related primarily to the change in fair values of contingent consideration liabilities.










(d)

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, the adjustment related to the net gain associated with the Kirin-Amgen share acquisition.










(e)

The tax effect of the adjustments between our GAAP and non-GAAP results takes into account the tax treatment and related tax rate(s) that apply to each adjustment in the applicable tax jurisdiction(s). Generally, this results in a tax impact at the U.S. marginal tax rate for certain adjustments, including the majority of amortization of intangible assets, whereas the tax impact of other adjustments, including restructuring expense, depends on whether the amounts are deductible in the respective tax jurisdictions and the applicable tax rate(s) in those jurisdictions. Due to these factors, the effective tax rates for the adjustments to our GAAP income before income taxes, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 were 24.7% and 25.7%, compared with 31.0% and 30.2% for the corresponding periods of the prior year.










(f)

The adjustments related primarily to certain acquisition items and prior period items excluded from GAAP earnings.

    Costco margin dip overshadows sales beat, shares slide

    Costco Wholesale Corp's (COST.O) gross margins fell in the first quarter, as the warehouse operator paid higher wages, ramped up investments in its online business and cut prices amid intense competition in the grocery industry. Costco shares, which have gained 21.7 percent this year, were down 3.2 percent at $219.13 in extended trading on Thursday. Higher gas prices also pressured gross margins, leading to a 50 basis points drop to 10.75 percent in the first quarter ended Nov. 25.

    Wall Street angst over a possible recession may be increasing, but one bull refuses to waver. Federated Investors' Steve Chiavarone believes there's nothing on the horizon that suggests the 2018 market corrections will become a massive downturn next year. Rather, he sees stocks hitting fresh record highs — citing labor market trends, inflation levels, the Treasury yield curve and credit spreads as key factors contributing to a favorable economic and market environment.

    Why Shopify Stock Dropped Today

    What happened Shares of Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) plunged 12.9% today after the e-commerce platform leader announced a dilutive secondary stock offering. More specifically, this morning Shopify priced an offering of 2.6 million Class A shares of stock -- or about 2.8% of Shopify's current float -- at $154 per share, or a roughly 4.4% discount from yesterday's closing price of just over $161. So what Shopify expects to bring in gross proceeds from the offering of roughly $400.4 million, before costs and underwriting discounts, and says it will use the cash to "strengthen its balance sheet, providing flexibility to fund its growth strategies."

While Diavik and the neighboring Ekati mine produce some very high quality diamonds, they’re not renowned for the sort of huge gems normally found in southern African mines.

    The dividend is a big reason why investors are drawn to AT&T. One way to get a sense of whether the stock is cheap or expensive -- albeit a very imperfect one that ignores earnings, cash flow, and the balance sheet -- is to look at where the yield is relative to historical values. Each time the dividend yield shot above 6% in the past, a rally followed. It's also useful to compare AT&T's dividend yield to that of Verizon Communications, the other giant U.S. wireless company.

    Here's What Investors Can Expect From Oil Prices in 2019

    Oil prices put on quite a show in 2018. Oil would go on to rise nearly 30% from that starting point after the Trump administration threatened to impose powerful sanctions on Iran, which fueled worries that oil supplies would fall short of demand. This slump has put a damper on the expectations for oil prices in 2019, which was evident in the latest short-term energy outlook by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
