Amgen's First Quarter 2009 Adjusted Earnings Per Share Decreased 4 Percent to $1.08

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., April 23, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amgen reported adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.08 for the first quarter of 2009, a decrease of 4 percent compared to $1.12 for the first quarter of 2008. Adjusted net income decreased 8 percent to $1,120 million in the first quarter of 2009 compared to $1,218 million in the first quarter of 2008.

Total revenue decreased 8 percent during the first quarter of 2009 to $3,308 million versus $3,613 million in the first quarter of 2008.

Adjusted EPS and adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2009 and 2008 exclude, for the applicable periods, stock option expense, certain expenses related to acquisitions, restructuring charges and certain other items. In addition, adjusted EPS and adjusted net income for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 exclude the incremental non-cash interest expense resulting from a change in accounting for convertible debt as discussed below. These expenses and other items are itemized on the attached reconciliation tables.

On a reported basis and calculated in accordance with United States (U.S.) Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), Amgen's GAAP EPS were $0.98 in the first quarter of 2009, a 3 percent decrease compared to $1.01 in the same quarter last year. GAAP net income decreased 7 percent to $1,019 million in the first quarter of 2009 from $1,100 million in the first quarter of 2008. Effective Jan. 1, 2009, Amgen adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board's Staff Position No. APB 14-1, "Accounting for Convertible Debt Instruments That May Be Settled in Cash upon Conversion (Including Partial Cash Settlement)" ("FSP APB 14-1"), which changed the method of accounting for the Company's convertible notes. In addition, as required, the Company also revised its previously reported financial statements to apply this change in accounting to prior periods. Under this new accounting method, the Company's EPS and net income calculated in accordance with GAAP have been reduced as a result of recognizing incremental non-cash interest expense. In connection with adopting FSP APB 14-1, Amgen recorded $61 million and $57 million of additional non-cash interest expense in the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. In addition, the Company's previously reported EPS and net income calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months ended March 31, 2008 have been reduced by $0.03 per share and $36 million to $1.01 per share and $1,100 million, respectively, as a result of adopting this new accounting method.

"Our first quarter sales were affected by the continued deterioration of the global economy which has led to changes in patient and physician behavior," said Kevin Sharer, chairman and chief executive officer. "Our future prospects remain strong. We have made progress on our plans to commercialize denosumab for PMO. Also, we are looking forward to reviewing important data on pipeline products including denosumab in certain oncology indications and Vectibix in colorectal cancer," concluded Sharer.

During the first quarter, total product sales decreased 8 percent to $3,238 million from $3,537 million in the first quarter of 2008. Sales in the U.S. totaled $2,502 million, a decrease of 10 percent versus $2,788 million in the first quarter of 2008. International sales decreased 2 percent to $736 million versus $749 million for the first quarter of 2008. The decline in first quarter 2009 sales reflects the negative impact of changes in foreign exchange, which aggregated approximately $69 million. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, total product sales decreased 7 percent and international product sales increased 7 percent.

Worldwide sales of Aranesp(R) (darbepoetin alfa) decreased 18 percent to $626 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $761 million during the first quarter of 2008. In the U.S., Aranesp sales decreased 28 percent to $292 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $405 million in the first quarter of 2008. U.S. sales in the first quarter of 2009 were negatively impacted by $12 million from changes in accounting estimates related to accruals for sales incentives for sales in prior periods. In addition, sales in the first quarter of 2008 were positively impacted by $22 million due to a change in the accounting estimate related to product sales return reserves. Excluding the impact of these changes in accounting estimates, U.S. sales of Aranesp declined 21 percent in the first quarter of 2009. The decrease was principally driven by a decline in demand reflecting the negative impact, primarily in the supportive cancer care setting, of additional product label changes which occurred in the third quarter of 2008, and, to a lesser extent, loss of segment share. The decline in sales in the first quarter of 2009 was slightly offset by favorable changes in wholesaler inventories. International Aranesp sales decreased 6 percent to $334 million versus $356 million in the first quarter of 2008 due to the negative impact of changes in foreign exchange, which aggregated approximately $29 million, partially offset by an increase in demand. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, worldwide product sales decreased 14 percent and international product sales increased 2 percent.

Sales of EPOGEN(R) (Epoetin alfa) increased 2 percent to $565 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $554 million in the first quarter of 2008, primarily due to an increase in demand. The increase in demand is principally due to patient population growth and an increase in price, partially offset by changes in customer purchasing patterns.

Combined worldwide sales of Neulasta(R) (pegfilgrastim) and NEUPOGEN(R) (Filgrastim) decreased 1 percent to $1,073 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $1,086 million for the first quarter of 2008. Combined sales of Neulasta and NEUPOGEN in the U.S. were $796 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $792 million in the first quarter of 2008, an increase of 1 percent due primarily to an increase in demand slightly offset by unfavorable changes in wholesaler inventories. The increase in demand was driven by a mid single digit increase in average net sales price, partially offset by a decline in units sold. Combined international sales decreased 6 percent to $277 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $294 million for the same quarter in the prior year. This decline is due to the negative impact of changes in foreign exchange, which aggregated approximately $29 million, partially offset by an increase in demand driven by the continued conversion from NEUPOGEN to Neulasta. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, combined worldwide product sales of NEUPOGEN and Neulasta increased 1 percent and international product sales increased 4 percent.

Sales of Enbrel(R) (etanercept) decreased 20 percent in the first quarter to $758 million versus $951 million during the same period in 2008, driven primarily by unfavorable changes in wholesaler inventory and to a lesser extent a decline in demand. Sales of ENBREL benefited from approximately $120 million of wholesaler inventory loading due to a shift to wholesaler distribution in the first quarter of 2008. Excluding this positive impact to the first quarter of 2008 and the decline in wholesaler inventory levels during the first quarter of 2009, ENBREL sales decreased 5 percent in the first quarter of 2009 versus the prior year, primarily due to a decline in demand. This decline in demand was principally due to a decrease in units sold partially offset by an increase in the average net sales price. ENBREL sales were affected by slowed tumor necrosis factor (TNF) segment growth and increased competitive activity. However, ENBREL continues to maintain a leading position in both the rheumatology and dermatology segments.

Worldwide sales of Sensipar(R) (cinacalcet) increased 11 percent to $148 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $133 million during the first quarter of 2008, primarily as a result of increased demand.

Vectibix(R) (panitumumab) sales for the first quarter were $53 million as compared to $34 million in the first quarter of 2008. Sales growth for the first quarter was driven by international demand as a result of recent launches of Vectibix in Europe, partially offset by lower U.S. demand.

decreased 13 percent to $474 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $542 million in the first quarter of 2008. This decrease was primarily driven by lower sales volume and favorable product mix.

expenses were $605 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $661 million in the first quarter of 2008, a decrease of 8 percent. This decrease was primarily driven by lower clinical trial costs for the denosumab registrational studies due to completion of enrollment, lower motesanib clinical trial costs associated with the delay of the non-small cell lung cancer trial (NSCLC), lower staff related costs, and increased partnership expense recoveries.

expenses decreased 10 percent to $774 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $862 million in the first quarter of 2008 reflecting lower expenses associated with the Wyeth profit share related to lower ENBREL sales, lower litigation expenses, lower enterprise resource planning (ERP) system related expenses following the implementation of a new ERP system, and lower staff related expenses, partially offset by higher product promotional expenses. Excluding Wyeth profit share, SG&A expenses decreased 6 percent versus the first quarter of 2008.

The adjusted tax rate in the first quarter of 2009 was 21.5 percent compared to 22.4 percent in the first quarter of 2008. The decrease in the adjusted tax rate is primarily due to the fact that the Federal R&D tax credit had not yet been extended in the first quarter of 2008.

During the first quarter of 2009, Amgen repurchased approximately 38 million shares of its common stock at a total cost of $2 billion. The Company currently has $2.2 billion remaining under its authorized stock repurchase program.

Average diluted shares for adjusted EPS in the first quarter of 2009 were 1,037 million versus 1,091 million in the first quarter of 2008.

Capital expenditures for the first quarter of 2009 were approximately $117 million versus $170 million in the first quarter of 2008. Worldwide cash and marketable securities were $10.4 billion and adjusted outstanding debt was $12.2 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2009. The Company's adjusted outstanding debt excludes the impact of adopting FSP APB 14-1 on the carrying values of its convertible debt. The Company's outstanding debt presented in accordance with GAAP was $11.4 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2009.

The Company now expects total revenue for 2009 to be in the range of $14.4 to $14.8 billion, a decrease from the previous range of $14.8 to $15.2 billion. Amgen continues to expect 2009 adjusted EPS to be in the range of $4.55 to $4.75, excluding stock option expense, certain expenses related to acquisitions, restructuring charges, the incremental non-cash interest expense resulting from the change in accounting for convertible debt, and certain other items itemized on the reconciliation table below.

The Company now expects 2009 capital expenditures to be approximately $650 million, down from the previous estimate of approximately $700M.

The Company provided updates on selected products and clinical programs.

The Company discussed the Aranesp pharmacovigilance study ('782 study), a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 3 non-inferiority study evaluating overall survival when comparing advanced NSCLC patients on Aranesp to patients receiving placebo. Investigator recruitment is in progress.

The Company indicated that the FDA has agreed with the revised study protocol for the Phase 3 MONET1 trial evaluating motesanib in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin for the first-line treatment of advanced NSCLC. The Company is preparing to reinitiate enrollment. Motesanib is part of a broad co-development program between Amgen and Takeda and Millennium: the Takeda Oncology Company.

The Company also announced that Phase 2 programs in NSCLC in metastatic breast cancer have been completed. The results support continued development. The company will present detailed information in an appropriate scientific forum.

The Company updated the status of the randomized, multicenter, Phase 3 study to compare the efficacy of panitumumab in combination with Oxaliplatin/ 5-Fluorouracil/Leucovorin to the efficacy of Oxaliplatin/ 5-Fluorouracil/Leucovorin alone in patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer ('203 study). The review of the blinded data available to date indicated that there had not been sufficient progression events to meet the minimum number as outlined in the statistical analysis plan. Therefore, the company elected to accrue additional data and now anticipates the '203 study results in the third quarter. The company also anticipates results in the third quarter from a Phase 3 study comparing the efficacy of panitumumab in combination with Irinotecan/ 5-Fluorouracil/Leucovorin to the efficacy of Irinotecan/ 5-Fluorouracil/Leucovorin alone in patients with previously treated metastatic colorectal cancer ('181 study). In addition, a Phase 3 study to compare efficacy of panitumumab in combination with chemotherapy versus chemotherapy alone as first line therapy for metastatic and/or recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck has completed enrollment.

    Notes to Reconciliation of GAAP Earnings to "Adjusted" Earnings
    (In millions, except per share data)
    (Unaudited)

     (a) Effective January 1, 2009, we adopted FSP APB 14-1, which changed
         the method of accounting for our convertible notes. In addition, as
         required, we revised our previously reported financial statements to
         retrospectively apply this change in accounting to prior periods.
         Under this new method of accounting, the debt and equity components
         of our convertible notes are bifurcated and accounted for separately.
         The equity components of our convertible notes are included in
         Stockholders' equity in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets
         with a corresponding reduction in the carrying values of our
         convertible notes as of the date of issuance or modification, as
         applicable.  The reduced carrying values of our convertible notes
         are being accreted back to their principal amounts through the
         recognition of non-cash interest expense. This results in recognizing
         interest expense on these borrowings at effective rates approximating
         what we would have incurred had we issued nonconvertible debt with
         otherwise similar terms.

         In connection with applying this new accounting to prior periods, we
         recorded $57 million of additional non-cash interest expense in the
         three months ended March 31, 2008. As a result, our previously
         reported results of operations calculated in accordance with GAAP
         have been revised for the three months ended March 31, 2008, as
         follows:

    (a) As discussed in more detail above in the notes to the Reconciliation
        of GAAP Earnings to "Adjusted" Earnings, effective January 1, 2009,
        we adopted FSP APB 14-1, which changed the method of accounting for
        our convertible notes. In addition, as required, we revised our
        previously reported financial statements to retrospectively apply
        this change in accounting to prior periods. As a result, our
        previously reported Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31,
        2008 has been revised as follows:

        Other non-current
         liabilities                 1,995           309(2)        2,304
        Stockholders' equity        20,386           499(3)       20,885


    (1) The reduction in Convertible notes reflects the bifurcation of the
        equity components of our convertible notes partially offset
        by the accretion of the reduced carrying values resulting from the
        recognition of non-cash interest expense through December 31, 2008.

    (2) The increase in Other non-current liabilities reflects the impact of
        deferred income taxes.

    (3) The increase in Stockholders' equity reflects the addition of the
        equity components of our convertible notes, partially offset
        by (i) non-cash interest expense recognized through December 31, 2008
        related to the accretion of the reduced carrying values of our
        convertible notes and (ii) the impact of deferred income taxes.
