Amgen's Full Year 2012 Revenues Increased 11 Percent To $17.3 Billion And Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS) Increased 22 Percent To $6.51

Full Year 2012 GAAP EPS Were $5.52

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012. Key results include:

  • For the full year, total revenues increased 11 percent to $17,265 million, with 9 percent product sales growth driven by strong performance across the portfolio. Adjusted EPS grew 22 percent to $6.51 due to 15 percent adjusted operating income growth and lower shares outstanding. 
  • For the fourth quarter, total revenues increased 11 percent to $4,421 million, with product sales growing at the same rate. Adjusted EPS grew 16 percent to $1.40 due to 11 percent adjusted operating income growth and lower shares outstanding. 
  • GAAP EPS were $1.01 in the fourth quarter compared to $1.08 a year ago, and were $5.52 for the full year compared to $4.04 in 2011. Full year 2011 was negatively impacted by a previously disclosed charge for a legal settlement reserve.
  • Free cash flow for the full year was $5.2 billion compared to $4.5 billion in 2011.
  • The Company announced that it has initiated Phase 3 studies for AMG 145 in subjects with high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. 

"We achieved strong operating performance in 2012 as we delivered for patients and created value for shareholders," said Robert A. Bradway, chairman and chief executive officer at Amgen.  "We enter 2013 with good momentum, a broad late-stage pipeline and a continued focus on building our business internationally."

Product Sales Performance

  • Total product sales increased 9 percent for the full year, driven by strong performance across the portfolio.  Product sales increased 11 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the fourth quarter of 2011 driven by Enbrel® (etanercept), XGEVA® (denosumab) and Prolia® (denosumab).
  • Combined Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim) and NEUPOGEN® (Filgrastim) sales declined 1 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the fourth quarter of 2011, and increased 3 percent for the full year.
    • Global Neulasta sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the fourth quarter of 2011 were flat as price increases were offset by unit declines and unfavorable inventory changes. Sales increased 4 percent for the full year mainly due to price increases.
    • Global NEUPOGEN sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the fourth quarter of 2011 declined 3 percent driven by a decrease in unit demand from loss of share to biosimilars in Europe. Sales were flat for the full year as price increases offset unit declines.
  • ENBREL sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the fourth quarter of 2011 increased 23 percent driven by increases in the average net sales price and unit demand. Sales increased 14 percent for the full year due mainly to price increases and unit growth.
  • Aranesp® (darbepoetin alfa) sales decreased 9 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the fourth quarter of 2011 and 11 percent for the full year due to changes in practice patterns.  Sequentially, sales were down 2 percent. 
  • EPOGEN® (epoetin alfa) sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the fourth quarter of 2011 decreased 1 percent driven by a reduction in dose utilization, offset largely by a reduction in customer discounts and favorable changes in accounting estimates. Sales for the full year decreased 5 percent as unit declines were offset partially by a reduction in customer discounts and favorable changes in accounting estimates.
  • Sensipar®/Mimpara® (cinacalcet) sales increased 19 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the fourth quarter of 2011 and 18 percent for the full year due to unit growth and price increases.
  • Combined sales of Vectibix® (panitumumab) and Nplate® (romiplostim) increased 15 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the fourth quarter of 2011 and 17 percent for the full year due to unit growth.
  • XGEVA sales increased 7 percent on a sequential basis and 113 percent for the full year due to unit growth.
  • Prolia sales increased 40 percent on a sequential basis and 133 percent for the full year due to unit growth.

Operating Expense and Tax Rate Analysis, on an Adjusted Basis

  • Cost of Sales, excluding the impact of the Puerto Rico excise tax, increased 0.3 points to 14.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 and increased 0.4 points to 14.4 percent for the full year due to product mix, offset partially by manufacturing efficiencies and higher average net sales price. 
  • Research & Development (R&D) expenses increased 9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 driven by later-stage clinical programs, primarily AMG 145 and romosozumab (AMG 785). For the full year, R&D expenses increased 6 percent driven by later-stage clinical programs, primarily AMG 145 and romosozumab (AMG 785), offset partially by reduced expenses associated with marketed product support.
  • Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 13 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 driven by higher ENBREL profit share expenses and international expansion.  ENBREL profit share expenses increased 27 percent to $414 million in the fourth quarter.  For the full year, SG&A expenses increased 6 percent, driven primarily by higher ENBREL profit share expenses and international expansion, offset partially by a favorable change to the estimated U.S. healthcare reform federal excise fee. ENBREL profit share expenses increased 16 percent to $1,495 million in 2012.

  • Tax Rate increased by 1.8 points to 16.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 due primarily to the unfavorable tax impact of changes in the jurisdictional mix of income and expenses, as well as the benefit in the fourth quarter of 2011 from the federal R&D tax credit which was not reinstated prior to 2012 year-end. This increase was offset partially by the favorable resolution of certain state tax matters related to prior years. For the full year, the adjusted tax rate increased 1.6 points to 15.9 percent due primarily to the federal R&D tax credit included in 2011 but not in 2012, the unfavorable tax impact of changes in the jurisdictional mix of income and expenses, offset partially by the favorable resolution of certain state tax matters related to prior years.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Discussion

  • The Company generated $0.6 billion of free cash flow in the fourth quarter of 2012 versus $1.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011. The decrease was driven by a $0.8 billion payment related to a previously disclosed legal settlement. For the full year, free cash flow increased $0.7 billion to $5.2 billion driven by improved collections of receivables, termination of fixed to floating interest rate swap agreements, and higher net income, offset partially by the aforementioned legal settlement payment.
  • During the fourth quarter, Amgen repurchased approximately 14 million shares of common stock at a total cost of $1.2 billion and at an average price of $86.56. This brings the total shares repurchased under its $10 billion authorized stock repurchase program to 146 million at a total cost of $9.7 billion and at an average price of $66.37. The Company previously announced a $2 billion increase in share repurchase authorization by its Board of Directors. Amgen expects that this increase will cover the Company's share repurchase activity into 2014.
  • The Company previously announced that its Board of Directors declared a $0.47 per share dividend for the first quarter of 2013. The dividend will be paid on March 7, 2013, to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on Feb. 13, 2013. This represents a 31 percent increase from that paid in each of the previous four quarters.

Forward-Looking Statements
This news release contains forward-looking statements that involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those discussed below and others that can be found in our Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, and in our periodic reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K. 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. The Company's results may be affected by our ability to successfully market both new and existing products domestically and internationally, clinical and regulatory developments (domestic or foreign) involving current and future products, sales growth of recently launched products, competition from other products (domestic or foreign) and difficulties or delays in manufacturing our products. In addition, sales of our products are affected by 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 health care cost containment as well as U.S. legislation affecting pharmaceutical pricing and reimbursement. Government and others' regulations and reimbursement policies may affect the development, usage and pricing of our products. 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. 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. We depend on third parties for a significant portion of our manufacturing capacity for the supply of certain of our current and future products 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 some 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. 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.

(*)  Dilutive securities used to compute "Adjusted" diluted EPS for the three months and years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 were computed under the treasury stock method assuming that we do not expense stock options.











(a)

The adjustments during the years ended 2012 and 2011 include incremental expenses resulting from our transaction with Boehringer Ingelheim.  The adjustment during the three months ended December 31, 2012, relates to a charge in connection with the rationalization of our worldwide manufacturing operations.











(b)

For the three months and years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, the total pre-tax expense for employee stock options was $13 million and $59 million, respectively and $18 million and $85 million, respectively.






















"Adjusted" diluted EPS including the impact of stock option expense for the three months and years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 was as follows:

$         5.26












(c)

The tax effect of the adjustments between our GAAP and "Adjusted" 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 amortization of intangible assets and non-cash interest expense associated with our convertible notes, whereas the tax impact of other adjustments, including stock option expense, depends on whether the amounts are deductible in the tax jurisdictions where the expenses are incurred or the asset is located 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 months and years ended December 31, 2012, were 25.9% and 30.5%, respectively, compared with 34.8% and 21.8% for the corresponding periods of the prior year.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze rea...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial Cloud.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

He will also discuss Rancher, an orchestration and service discovery platf...
PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
CommVault has announced that top industry technology visionaries have joined its leadership team. The addition of leaders from companies such as Oracle, SAP, Microsoft, Cisco, PwC and EMC signals the continuation of CommVault Next, the company's business transformation for sales, go-to-market strategies, pricing and packaging and technology innovation. The company also announced that it had realigned its structure to create business units to more directly match how customers evaluate, deploy, operate, and purchase technology.
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
