Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) today reported financial results for first-quarter 2012. First-quarter 2012 revenues were $15.4 billion, a decrease of 7% compared with $16.5 billion in the year-ago quarter, which reflects an operational decline of $1.0 billion, or 6%, and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange of $57 million, or less than 1%.

For first-quarter 2012, U.S. revenues were $6.0 billion, a decrease of 15% compared with the year-ago quarter, primarily as a result of the U.S. loss of exclusivity of Lipitor on November 30, 2011. International revenues were $9.5 billion, consistent with the prior-year quarter, which reflects 1% operational growth and a 1% unfavorable impact of foreign exchange. U.S. revenues represented 39% of total revenues in first-quarter 2012 compared with 43% in the year-ago quarter, while international revenues represented 61% of total revenues in first-quarter 2012 compared with 57% in the year-ago quarter.

Business Highlights

Primary Care unit revenues decreased 25% in comparison with the same period last year, primarily due to the loss of exclusivity of Lipitor in the U.S. in November 2011 and the resulting shift in the reporting of U.S. Lipitor revenues to the Established Products unit beginning January 1, 2012. U.S. branded Lipitor revenues, as reported by the Established Products unit, decreased to $383 million, or 71%, from $1.3 billion reported by the Primary Care unit in first-quarter 2011. Collectively, the decline in revenues for Lipitor in the U.S. and for certain other Primary Care unit products that lost exclusivity in various markets in 2011, as well as the resulting shift in the reporting of such product revenues to the Established Products unit, reduced Primary Care unit revenues by $1.5 billion, or 28%, in comparison with first-quarter 2011. The impact of these declines was partially offset by the strong growth of Lyrica, most notably in Japan, in addition to the solid performance of Celebrex and Premarin.

Specialty Care unit revenues declined 9% in comparison with first-quarter 2011. Revenues were positively impacted by the growth of Enbrel as well as the Prevenar franchise in Japan and Australia, while U.S. and developed Europe Prevnar 13/Prevenar 13 revenues were lower than in the prior-year quarter primarily because most patients eligible to receive the pediatric catch-up dose have already been vaccinated. Prevnar 13 U.S. revenues were also impacted by a lower birth cohort compared with the same quarter last year. Additionally, Specialty Care unit revenues were negatively impacted by the losses of exclusivity of Vfend and Xalatan in the U.S. in February and March 2011, respectively, and the resulting shift in the reporting of Vfend and Xalatan U.S. revenues to the Established Products unit beginning January 1, 2012, as well as the loss of exclusivity of Geodon in the U.S. in March 2012. Collectively, these developments relating to Vfend, Xalatan and Geodon and the impact of other Specialty Care unit products that lost exclusivity in various markets in 2011 reduced Specialty Care unit revenues by $264 million, or 7%, in comparison with first-quarter 2011.

Established Products unit revenues increased 17% operationally in comparison with the prior-year period, primarily driven by recent launches of generic versions of certain Pfizer branded primary care and specialty care products as well as $383 million of U.S. branded Lipitor revenues. Additionally, revenues were positively impacted by our agreement granting Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. the exclusive right to sell the authorized generic version of Lipitor in the U.S. First-quarter 2012 revenues were negatively impacted in comparison with first-quarter 2011 by the entry of multi-source generic competition in the U.S. for donepezil (Aricept) in May 2011. Total revenues from established products in both the Established Products and Emerging Markets units were $3.8 billion, with $965 million generated in emerging markets.

Emerging Markets unit revenues grew 9% operationally in comparison with first-quarter 2011, primarily due to continued volume growth across the product portfolio, primarily in China, Russia and Mexico, as a result of more focused, targeted promotional efforts for key products. This growth was partially offset by the negative impact of increased pricing pressures and changes in the timing of government purchases in Turkey.

Animal Health unit revenues increased 6% operationally in comparison with the same quarter last year, primarily due to the full-quarter impact of legacy King product revenues in first-quarter 2012 compared with the partial-quarter impact in first-quarter 2011, as well as solid performances in both the global livestock and companion animal portfolios. Consumer Healthcare unit revenues declined 1% in comparison with first-quarter 2011, primarily due to the impact of a less severe cold/flu season and the restocking of Centrum in Europe in the prior-year quarter after the temporary voluntary withdrawal of that product in Europe in third-quarter 2010. Nutrition unit revenues increased 8% operationally in comparison with the same quarter last year, driven by the continued benefits from successful new product launches, increased promotional activities and overall strength in key markets, most notably China.

See end of text prior to tables for notes.

Adjusted total costs(7) were $8.8 billion in first-quarter 2012, a decrease of 9% compared with $9.6 billion in first-quarter 2011. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign exchange of $163 million, or 2%, adjusted total costs(7) decreased 7%, primarily reflecting the benefits of cost-reduction and productivity initiatives. Savings in adjusted R&D expenses(1) were generated in first-quarter 2012 by the discontinuation of certain therapeutic areas and R&D programs in connection with our previously announced initiatives. Savings in adjusted SI&A expenses(1) were achieved by a reduction in the field force and a decrease in promotional spending, both partially in response to product losses of exclusivity, as well as by more streamlined corporate support functions. Adjusted cost of sales(1) as a percent of revenues was favorably impacted by foreign exchange and unfavorably impacted by a shift in geographic and business mix.

In first-quarter 2012, the effective tax rate on adjusted income(1) was 29.1% compared with 27.9% in first-quarter 2011. The increase was primarily due to the change in the jurisdictional mix of earnings and the impact of the expiration of the U.S. research and development tax credit.

The diluted weighted-average shares outstanding for first-quarter 2012 were 7.6 billion shares, a reduction of approximately 437 million shares compared with first-quarter 2011. This decline was primarily due to the Company’s ongoing share-repurchase program.

As a result of the aforementioned factors, first-quarter 2012 adjusted income(1) was $4.4 billion, a decrease of 8% compared with $4.8 billion in the year-ago quarter, and adjusted diluted EPS(1) was $0.58, a decrease of 3% compared with $0.60 in first-quarter 2011.

Reported Net Income(2) and Reported Diluted EPS(2) Highlights

In addition to the aforementioned factors, first-quarter 2012 reported earnings in comparison with the same period in 2011 were favorably impacted by lower purchase accounting adjustments and lower acquisition-related costs. First-quarter 2012 reported earnings were unfavorably impacted by higher implementation costs related to our cost-reduction and productivity initiatives, higher charges related to certain legal matters and higher impairment charges related to certain intangible assets acquired primarily in connection with the Wyeth acquisition.

The effective tax rate on reported results was 29.4% in first-quarter 2012 compared with 28.7% in first-quarter 2011. The increase was primarily due to the change in the jurisdictional mix of earnings and the impact of the expiration of the U.S. research and development tax credit.

As a result of all these factors, first-quarter 2012 reported net income(2) was $1.8 billion, a decrease of 19% compared with $2.2 billion in the prior-year quarter, and reported diluted EPS(2) was $0.24, a decrease of 14% compared with $0.28 in first-quarter 2011.

Executive Commentary

Ian Read, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am pleased with our first-quarter 2012 financial performance, which was driven primarily by growth in certain brands including Celebrex, Enbrel and Lyrica, growth in key geographies such as China, as well as our continued ability to realize cost savings and efficiently allocate our shareholders’ capital. These and various other factors have mitigated the negative financial impact of product losses of exclusivity of approximately $1.3 billion compared with the year-ago quarter, including Lipitor in the U.S., and have enabled us to generate adjusted diluted EPS(1) that is nearly comparable to the year-ago period.”

“Regarding our key imperative to improve the performance of our innovative core, notable progress continues as we launched the Prevnar 13/Prevenar 13 vaccine for adults in the U.S. and EU and Inlyta for advanced renal cell carcinoma in the U.S., while regulatory submissions for Eliquis, tofacitinib and bosutinib are under review in key markets, with regulatory action for each anticipated in 2012. In addition, we look forward to receiving phase three clinical data for bapineuzumab for Alzheimer’s disease in mid-2012. I also remain encouraged by the emerging profiles of our next wave of innovative pipeline candidates which are in phase two or early phase three studies in areas such as oncology, vaccines, hyperlipidemia and pain.”

“I also am pleased with the recently announced agreement to sell our Nutrition business to Nestlé for $11.85 billion. This is a significant milestone that I believe will unlock the trapped value of this successful business and create greater return for our shareholders. We currently expect to allocate the after-tax proceeds to further share repurchases, and will regularly assess additional uses of proceeds, with share repurchases remaining the case to beat. Further, we remain committed to continuing to generate attractive returns for our shareholders by delivering novel therapies in high-need disease areas, maximizing the value of our Animal Health business, efficiently allocating capital and rigorously managing our operating expenses,” concluded Mr. Read.

Frank D’Amelio, Chief Financial Officer, stated, “We are updating our 2012 revenues and adjusted(1) financial guidance to reflect our decision to sell the Nutrition business. We remain on-track to finalize a strategic decision for our Animal Health business this year and continue to expect that any separation of that business will occur between July 2012 and July 2013. Further, this quarter we continued to prudently allocate our capital by returning over $3.3 billion to our shareholders in first-quarter 2012, through $1.6 billion in dividends and $1.7 billion from the repurchase of 77 million shares.”

2012 Financial Guidance(8)

For full-year 2012, Pfizer’s financial guidance, at current exchange rates(9), is summarized below. Beginning second-quarter 2012, the Nutrition business will be presented as a discontinued operation in the consolidated statements of income for all periods presented on a retroactive basis. In addition to the aforementioned updates to the revenues and adjusted(1) financial guidance to reflect the decision to divest the Nutrition business, the guidance range for Reported Diluted EPS(2) decreased to a range of $1.23 to $1.38 from a range of $1.37 to $1.52, primarily reflecting additional expenses related to certain legal matters and certain asset impairment charges.

(1) "Adjusted Income" and its components and "Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS)" are defined as reported net income(2) and its components and reported diluted EPS(2) excluding purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related costs, discontinued operations and certain significant items. Adjusted Cost of Sales, Adjusted Selling, Informational and Administrative (SI&A) expenses, Adjusted Research and Development (R&D) expenses and Adjusted Other (Income)/Deductions are income statement line items prepared on the same basis, and, therefore, components of the overall adjusted income measure. As described under Adjusted Income in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of Pfizer's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, management uses adjusted income, among other factors, to set performance goals and to measure the performance of the overall company. We believe that investors' understanding of our performance is enhanced by disclosing this measure. Reconciliations of first-quarter 2012 and 2011 adjusted income and its components and adjusted diluted EPS to reported net income(2) and its components and reported diluted EPS(2), as well as reconciliations of full-year 2012 guidance for adjusted income and adjusted diluted EPS to full-year 2012 guidance for reported net income(2) and reported diluted EPS(2), are provided in the materials accompanying this report. The adjusted income and its components and adjusted diluted EPS measures are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) net income and its components and diluted EPS.

(2) “Reported Net Income” is defined as net income attributable to Pfizer Inc. in accordance with U.S. GAAP. “Reported Diluted EPS” is defined as reported diluted EPS attributable to Pfizer Inc. common shareholders in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

(3) On April 23, 2012, Pfizer announced that it entered into an agreement to sell the Nutrition business to Nestlé. The transaction is expected to close by the first half of 2013, assuming the receipt of the required regulatory clearances and the satisfaction of other closing conditions. As a result of Pfizer’s decision to divest this business, the Nutrition business will be presented as a discontinued operation in the consolidated statements of income for all periods presented on a retroactive basis beginning second-quarter 2012. Therefore, all revenues and expenses related to the Nutrition business will be presented in a single line, Discontinued operations - net of tax.

(4) In first-quarter 2011, the results from the Capsugel(10) business are reflected in a single line, Discontinued operations - net of tax. Additionally, due to the acquisition of King Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (King), legacy King operations are reflected in the results beginning January 31, 2011. Therefore, in accordance with Pfizer’s domestic and international reporting periods, the results for first-quarter 2011 reflect approximately two months of King’s U.S. operations and approximately one month of King’s international operations.

(5) See Note 18A to Pfizer’s 2011 consolidated financial statements, which are incorporated by reference in Pfizer’s 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K, for a description of each business unit as of December 31, 2011.

The revenues for certain products in certain developed markets that were reported in the Primary Care, Specialty Care or Oncology business unit through December 31, 2011 are being reported in the Established Products business unit beginning January 1, 2012 as the result of the loss of exclusivity of those products in those markets during 2011. The most significant changes are as follows:

  • Lipitor revenues in the U.S. and Japan, and Caduet revenues in the U.S., which were reported in the Primary Care business unit through December 31, 2011
  • Vfend and Xalatan revenues in the U.S., which were reported in the Specialty Care business unit through December 31, 2011
  • Aromasin revenues in developed markets in Europe, which were reported in the Oncology business unit through December 31, 2011

(6) Other includes revenues generated primarily from Pfizer CentreSource.

(7) Represents the total of Adjusted Cost of Sales(1), Adjusted SI&A expenses(1) and Adjusted R&D expenses(1).

(8) The 2012 financial guidance reflects the revenues and expenses related to the Nutrition business as a discontinued operation, but does not include the gain on the pending sale of the Nutrition business. Does not assume the completion of any business-development transactions not completed as of April 1, 2012, including any one-time upfront payments associated with such transactions. Also excludes the potential effects of the resolution of litigation-related matters not substantially resolved as of April 30, 2012.

(9) The current exchange rates assumed in connection with the 2012 financial guidance are a blend of the actual exchange rates in effect during the first three months of 2012 and the mid-April 2012 exchange rates for the remainder of the year.

(10) Capsugel provided capsule products and related services to the pharmaceutical and associated healthcare industries. On August 1, 2011, Pfizer completed the sale of Capsugel to an affiliate of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P.

PFIZER INC.
SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

1. Change in Reported Cost of Sales

Reported cost of sales decreased 19% in first-quarter 2012, compared to the same period in 2011. The decrease is primarily due to lower purchase accounting adjustments in 2012, as well as savings associated with our cost-reduction and productivity initiatives, partially offset by a shift in geographic and business mix. In addition, first-quarter 2012 was favorably impacted by foreign exchange of 4%, while the first quarter of 2011 was unfavorably impacted by foreign exchange of 2%.

Reported cost of sales as a percentage of revenues decreased 3.1 percentage points to 19.3% in first-quarter 2012, compared to the same period in 2011, reflecting the aforementioned factors.

2. Change in Reported Selling, Informational & Administrative (SI&A) Expenses and Reported Research & Development (R&D) Expenses

Reported SI&A expenses decreased 8% in first-quarter 2012, compared to the same period in 2011, primarily due to savings generated in first-quarter 2012 from a reduction in the field force and a decrease in promotional spending, both partially in response to product losses of exclusivity, as well as by more streamlined corporate support functions. Foreign exchange did not have a significant impact on first-quarter 2012, while the first quarter of 2011 was unfavorably impacted by foreign exchange of 1%.

Reported R&D expenses decreased 1% in first-quarter 2012, compared to the same period in 2011, due to savings generated by the discontinuation of certain therapeutic areas and R&D programs in connection with our previously announced cost-reduction and productivity initiatives, partially offset by higher charges related to those initiatives. Foreign exchange did not have a significant impact on first-quarter 2012 and had a minimal impact on reported R&D expenses in first-quarter 2011.

(a)

 

Interest income decreased in 2012 due to lower interest rates earned on investments. Interest expense decreased in 2012 due to lower long- and short-term debt balances and the conversion of some fixed-rate liabilities to floating-rate liabilities.

(b)

In 2012, primarily relates to a $450 million charge in connection with an agreement-in-principle to settle a lawsuit by Brigham Young University related to Celebrex and charges for hormone-replacement therapy litigation. In 2011, primarily relates to charges for hormone-replacement therapy litigation.

(c)

4. Effective Tax Rate

Reported

The effective tax rate on reported results was 29.4% in first-quarter 2012 compared with 28.7% in first-quarter 2011. The increase was primarily due to a change in the jurisdictional mix of earnings and the impact of the expiration of the U.S. research and development tax credit.

Adjusted

The effective tax rate on adjusted income(1) in first-quarter 2012 was 29.1% compared with 27.9% in first-quarter 2011. The increase was primarily due to the change in the jurisdictional mix of earnings and the impact of the expiration of the U.S. research and development tax credit.

Does not assume the completion of any business-development transactions not completed as of April 1, 2012, including any one-time upfront payments associated with such transactions. Also excludes the potential effects of the resolution of litigation-related matters not substantially resolved as of April 30, 2012.

The changes in the amounts from the reconciliation in the Company’s 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K are primarily due to the reclassification of costs from Acquisition-Related Costs to Non-Acquisition Related Restructuring Costs.

(d)

Income attributable to Pfizer’s Nutrition business.

_______________

(1) “Adjusted income” and “adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS)” are defined as reported net income attributable to Pfizer Inc. and reported diluted EPS attributable to Pfizer Inc. common shareholders excluding purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related costs, discontinued operations and certain significant items. As described under Adjusted Income in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of Pfizer’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, management uses adjusted income, among other factors, to set performance goals and to measure the performance of the overall company. We believe that investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by disclosing this measure. The adjusted income and adjusted diluted EPS measures are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for U.S. GAAP net income and diluted EPS.

  • U.S. legislation or regulatory action affecting, among other things: pharmaceutical product pricing, reimbursement or access, including under Medicaid, Medicare and other publicly funded or subsidized health programs; the importation of prescription drugs from outside the U.S. at prices that are regulated by governments of various foreign countries; direct-to-consumer advertising and interactions with healthcare professionals; and the use of comparative effectiveness methodologies that could be implemented in a manner that focuses primarily on the cost differences and minimizes the therapeutic differences among pharmaceutical products and restricts access to innovative medicines;
  • legislation or regulatory action in markets outside the U.S. affecting pharmaceutical product pricing, reimbursement or access, including, in particular, continued government-mandated price reductions for certain biopharmaceutical products in certain European and emerging market countries;
  • the exposure of our operations outside the U.S. to possible capital and exchange controls, expropriation and other restrictive government actions, changes in intellectual property legal protections and remedies, as well as political unrest and unstable governments and legal systems;
