Certain financial information for 2019 and 2018 is presented on both a reported and a non-GAAP basis. Some numbers in this press release may not add due to rounding. Reported results were prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), include all revenue and expenses recognized during the periods, and reflect Elanco Animal Health (Elanco) as discontinued operations for all periods presented. Non-GAAP measures reflect adjustments for the items described in the reconciliation tables later in the release, and assume that the disposition of Elanco occurred at the beginning of all periods presented (including the benefit from the reduction in shares of common stock outstanding). The company's 2019 financial guidance is being provided on both a reported and a non-GAAP basis. The non-GAAP measures are presented to provide additional insights into the underlying trends in the company's business.

"Lilly continued to deliver strong results in the third quarter, due in large part to the growth of our newer medicines and our ability to effectively manage costs while supporting global launches in highly competitive classes and funding our next generation of new therapies," said David A. Ricks, Lilly's chairman and CEO. "Lilly's revenue growth is being driven by volume, not price, as more and more patients are benefiting from our recently launched medicines. Our sustained investments in oncology, diabetes, immunology, and neuroscience research continue to be productive, with several new medicines expected to be submitted, launch and then reach patients over the next few years."

Key Events Over the Last Three Months

Regulatory

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved REYVOW™, an oral medication for the acute treatment of migraine, with or without aura, in adults. The recommended controlled substance classification for REYVOW is currently under review by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and is expected within 90 days of the FDA approval, after which REYVOW will be available to patients in retail pharmacies.
  • The FDA approved Taltz® for the treatment of adults with active ankylosing spondylitis, also known as radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (r-axSpA).
  • The European Commission approved an update to the Trulicity® label and indication statement to include results from the REWIND cardiovascular (CV) outcomes trial, which achieved a significant 12 percent risk reduction in major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE).
  • The European Medicines Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) issued a positive opinion recommending the approval of Baqsimi™ for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia in adults, adolescents, and children aged four years and older with diabetes mellitus.

Clinical

  • The company announced positive results from a Phase 1/2 clinical trial intended to support the registration of oral selpercatinib monotherapy, also known as LOXO-292, for the treatment of RET fusion-positive non-small cell lung cancer, and for the treatment of RET-altered thyroid cancers.
  • The company announced that Emgality® met the primary and all key secondary outcomes in a Phase 3 study evaluating its efficacy and safety in the preventive treatment of chronic and episodic migraine in patients with documented previous failures on two to four different standard-of-care migraine preventive medication categories, due to inadequate efficacy or for safety/tolerability reasons.
  • The company announced that Taltz met the primary and all major secondary endpoints up to week 12 in a Phase 4 study, which evaluated the efficacy and safety of Taltz versus Tremfya® in people living with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
  • The company and Incyte Corporation announced that baricitinib met the primary endpoint in a Phase 3 investigational study evaluating its efficacy and safety to treat moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (AD) in adults.
  • The company announced top-line results from a Phase 3 trial evaluating pegilodecakin plus FOLFOX (folinic acid, 5-FU, oxaliplatin) compared to FOLFOX alone in patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer whose disease had progressed during or following a first-line gemcitabine-containing regimen. The trial did not meet its primary endpoint of overall survival.

Business Development/Other Developments

  • The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled in favor of Lilly, confirming that the Alimta® vitamin regimen patent would be infringed by competitors that had stated their intent to market alternative salt forms of pemetrexed prior to the patent's expiration in May 2022.
  • An arbitration panel ruled in favor of Lilly in a claim filed by Adocia S.A. over the companies' prior collaboration on a rapid-acting insulin. The panel of three arbitrators ruled that Lilly did not misappropriate or misuse Adocia's intellectual property or confidential information, and denied Adocia's claims for damages; the panel also denied Lilly's smaller counterclaim.

Third-Quarter Reported Results

In the third quarter of 2019, worldwide revenue was $5.477 billion, an increase of 3 percent compared with the third quarter of 2018, and an increase of 4 percent when excluding the impact of foreign exchange rates. The increase in revenue was driven by an 8 percent increase due to volume, partially offset by a 4 percent decrease due to lower realized prices.

Revenue in the U.S. was essentially flat at $3.060 billion, as increased volume of 5 percent was offset by lower realized prices. Increased U.S. volume for key growth products including Trulicity,  Taltz, Emgality, Jardiance®, Verzenio®, and Basaglar®, was partially offset by decreased volume for Cialis® due to loss of patent exclusivity,  as well as the impact from the product withdrawal of Lartruvo®. Lower realized prices in the U.S. were primarily due to  increased coverage gap funding requirements in Medicare Part D and higher contracted rebates.

Revenue outside the U.S. increased 8 percent, to $2.416 billion, driven by increased volume of 12 percent, which was primarily from key growth products, including Trulicity, Olumiant®, Jardiance, Taltz, and Verzenio, partially offset by decreased volume for Strattera® due to loss of patent exclusivity and the impact of the product withdrawal of Lartruvo. The increase in revenue due to volume was partially offset by the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange rates and lower realized prices.

Gross margin increased 4 percent, to $4.302 billion, in the third quarter of 2019 compared with the third quarter of 2018. Gross margin as a percent of revenue was 78.5 percent, an increase of 0.2 percentage points compared with the third quarter of 2018. The increase in gross margin percent was primarily due to the favorable effect of foreign exchange rates on international inventories sold, lower intangibles amortization expense and greater manufacturing efficiencies, partially offset by unfavorable product mix primarily as a result of the loss of patent exclusivity for Cialis, and the impact of lower realized prices on revenue.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2019, defined as the sum of research and development and marketing, selling, and administrative expenses, increased 2 percent to $2.793 billion compared with the third quarter of 2018. Research and development expenses increased 8 percent to $1.381 billion, or 25.2 percent of revenue, driven by higher development expenses for late-stage assets. Marketing, selling, and administrative expenses decreased 3 percent, to $1.412 billion, as lower spending on late life-cycle products, lower litigation charges, and ongoing cost containment measures were partially offset by increased expenses for recently launched products.

In the third quarter of 2019, the company recognized acquired in-process research and development charges of $77.7 million, related to the previously announced business development transactions with Centrexion Therapeutics Corporation and AC Immune SA. In the third quarter of 2018, the company recognized acquired in-process research and development charges of $30.0 million related to a collaboration with Anima Biotech.

Operating income in the third quarter of 2019 was $1.431 billion, compared to $1.343 billion in the third quarter of 2018. The increase in operating income was primarily driven by higher gross margin and lower asset impairment, restructuring, and other special charges, partially offset by higher operating expenses and higher acquired in-process research and development charges.

Other expense was $24.9 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared with $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2018. The increase in other expense was primarily driven by higher net interest expense, partially offset by higher net gains on investment securities.

The effective tax rate was 10.8 percent in the third quarter of 2019, compared with 18.5 percent in the third quarter of 2018. The lower effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2019 was primarily driven by a net discrete tax benefit related to the settlement of certain tax matters, as compared to a net discrete tax detriment incurred in the third quarter of 2018 related  to tax expenses for U.S. tax reform and the Elanco separation.

In the third quarter of 2019, net income and earnings per share were $1.254 billion and $1.37, respectively, compared with net income of $1.150 billion and earnings per share of $1.12 in the third quarter of 2018. The increase in net income in the third quarter of 2019 was primarily driven by higher operating income and, to a lesser extent, lower tax expense, partially offset by lower net income from discontinued operations related to Elanco. In addition to the increase in net income, earnings per share in the third quarter of 2019 significantly benefited from lower weighted-average shares outstanding as a result of the Elanco exchange offer and share repurchases.

Third-Quarter Non-GAAP Measures

On a non-GAAP basis, third-quarter 2019 gross margin increased 2 percent, to $4.358 billion compared with the third quarter of 2018. Gross margin as a percent of revenue was 79.6 percent, a decrease of 0.6 percentage points. The decrease in gross margin percent was primarily due to  unfavorable product mix primarily as a result of the loss of patent exclusivity for Cialis, and the impact of lower realized prices on revenue, partially offset by the favorable effect of foreign exchange rates on international inventories sold and greater manufacturing efficiencies.

Operating income on a non-GAAP basis increased $44.4 million, or 3 percent, to $1.565 billion in the third quarter of 2019 compared with the third quarter of 2018, due to higher gross margin, partially offset by higher operating expenses.

The effective tax rate on a non-GAAP basis was 11.7 percent in the third quarter of 2019, compared with 14.9 percent in the third quarter of 2018. The lower effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2019 was driven primarily by a net discrete tax benefit related to the settlement of certain tax matters.

On a non-GAAP basis, in the third quarter of 2019, net income increased 5 percent, to $1.360 billion, while earnings per share increased 10 percent, to $1.48, compared with $1.293 billion and $1.34, respectively, in the third quarter of 2018. The increase in net income was driven by lower tax expense and higher operating income, partially offset by higher other expense. The increase in earnings per share was driven by the increase in net income as well as the benefit from lower weighted-average shares outstanding as a result of share repurchases. Non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding for both periods have been reduced by the approximately 65 million shares retired in the Elanco exchange offer.

Year-to-Date Reported Results

For the first nine months of 2019, worldwide revenue increased 2 percent, to $16.206 billion, compared with $15.856 billion in the same period in 2018.

The increases in net income and earnings per share in the first nine months of 2019 were driven primarily by the gain recognized on the disposition of Elanco and, to a lesser extent, lower acquired in-process research and development charges.

Year-to-Date Non-GAAP Measures

For the first nine months of 2019, net income and earnings per share, on a non-GAAP basis, were $3.985 billion and $4.31, respectively, compared with $4.014 billion and $4.13 in the same period of 2018.

Trulicity

Third-quarter 2019 worldwide Trulicity revenue was $1.011 billion, an increase of 24 percent compared with the third quarter of 2018. U.S. revenue increased 17 percent, to $755.5 million, driven by increased demand, partially offset by lower realized prices due to higher contracted rebates, changes in segment mix, and increased coverage gap funding requirements in Medicare Part D. Revenue outside the U.S. was $256.0 million, an increase of 50 percent, driven by increased volume.

Humalog

For the third quarter of 2019, worldwide Humalog revenue decreased 2 percent compared with the third quarter of 2018, to $648.9 million. Revenue in the U.S. decreased 3 percent, to $356.2 million,  driven by decreased demand and lower realized prices. Revenue outside the U.S. decreased 2 percent, to $292.6 million, driven primarily by the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange rates, partially offset by higher realized prices.

Alimta

For the third quarter of 2019, worldwide Alimta revenue decreased 2 percent compared with the third quarter of 2018, to $508.2 million. U.S. revenue decreased 2 percent, to $282.4 million, primarily driven by lower realized prices and the impact of buying patterns, partially offset by increased demand.

Forteo

For the third quarter of 2019, worldwide Forteo revenue decreased 5 percent compared with the third quarter of 2018, to $370.7 million. U.S. revenue decreased 4 percent, to $175.1 million, primarily driven by decreased demand, partially offset by higher realized prices. Revenue outside the U.S. decreased 6 percent to $195.7 million, primarily driven by decreased volume and, to a lesser extent, the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange rates.

Cialis

For the third quarter of 2019, worldwide Cialis revenue decreased 61 percent compared with the third quarter of 2018, to $184.3 million. U.S. revenue was $30.9 million in the third quarter, a 90 percent decrease compared with the third quarter of 2018, driven by decreased demand due to generic competition. Revenue outside the U.S. decreased 10 percent to $153.4 million, driven by decreased demand due to generic competition, and, to a lesser extent, lower realized prices and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange rates.

U.S. revenue was $124.8 million, an increase of $19.6 million compared with the second quarter of 2019, primarily driven by increased higher realized prices and increased demand.

Following the disposition of the company's remaining ownership in Elanco Animal Health, Elanco's financial results were no longer included in Lilly's financial results beginning March 12, 2019. On a reported basis, the 2019 financial guidance outlined below includes the financial results of the Elanco business from January 1, 2019 to March 11, 2019 as discontinued operations, including the gain on the disposition of Elanco.

The company still anticipates 2019 revenue between $22.0 billion and $22.5 billion. Revenue growth is expected to be driven by volume from key growth products including Trulicity, Taltz, Basaglar, Jardiance, Verzenio, Cyramza, Olumiant, and Emgality. Revenue growth is also expected to benefit from the recent launch of Baqsimi. Revenue growth is expected to be partially offset by lower revenue for Cialis and other products that have lost patent exclusivity. Revenue growth is also expected to be partially offset by the negative impact of foreign exchange rates, a mid-single digit net price decline in the U.S. driven primarily by rebates and legislated increases to Medicare Part D cost sharing, patient affordability programs, price declines in some international markets and the impact of the product withdrawal of Lartruvo.

Gross margin as a percent of revenue rate is still expected to be approximately 79.0 percent on a reported basis and approximately 80.0 percent on a non-GAAP basis.

Marketing, selling and administrative expenses are still expected to be in the range of $5.9 billion to $6.1 billion. Research and development expenses are still expected to be in the range of $5.5 billion to $5.7 billion.

Other income (expense) is now expected to be between income of $50 million and expense of $100 million.

The 2019 effective tax rate is now expected to be in the range of 13 percent to 14 percent on a reported basis and 12 percent to 13 percent on a non-GAAP basis.

This press release contains management's current intentions and expectations for the future, all of which are forward- looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The words "estimate", "project", "intend", "expect", "believe", "target", "anticipate" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ materially due to various factors. There are significant risks and uncertainties in pharmaceutical research and development. There can be no guarantees that pipeline products will receive the necessary clinical and manufacturing regulatory approvals or that they will prove to be commercially successful. The company's results may also be affected by such factors as the timing of anticipated regulatory approvals and launches of new products; market uptake of recently launched products; competitive developments affecting current products and our pipeline; the expiration of intellectual property protection for certain of the company's products; the company's ability to protect and enforce patents and other intellectual property; the impact of actions of governmental and private payers affecting the pricing of, reimbursement for, and access to pharmaceuticals; regulatory compliance problems or government investigations; regulatory actions regarding currently marketed products; unexpected safety or efficacy concerns associated with the company's products; issues with product supply stemming from manufacturing difficulties or disruptions; regulatory changes or other developments; changes in patent law or regulations related to data-package exclusivity; litigation involving past, current or future products; unauthorized disclosure, misappropriation, or compromise of trade secrets or other confidential data stored in the company's information systems, networks and facilities, or those of third parties with which the company shares its data; changes in tax law and regulations, including the impact of U.S. tax reform legislation enacted in December 2017 and related guidance; changes in inflation, interest rates, and foreign currency exchange rates; asset impairments and restructuring charges; changes in accounting standards promulgated by the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC); acquisitions and business development transactions and related integration costs; information technology system inadequacies or operating failures; reliance on third-party relationships and outsourcing arrangements; and global macroeconomic conditions. For additional information about the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from forward-looking statements, please see the company's latest Form 10-K and 10-Q filed with the SEC. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this release. Except as is required by law, the company expressly disclaims any obligation to publicly release any revisions to forward-looking statements to reflect events after the date of this release.

Numbers may not add due to rounding.


The table above reflects only line items with non-GAAP adjustments.



(a)

The company uses non-GAAP financial measures that differ from financial statements reported in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The company's non-GAAP measures adjust reported results to exclude amortization of intangibles and items that are typically highly variable, difficult to predict, and of a size that could have a substantial impact on the company's reported operations for a period. The company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors. Among other things, they may help investors evaluate the company's ongoing operations. They can assist in making meaningful period-over-period comparisons and in identifying operating trends that would otherwise be masked or distorted by the items subject to the adjustments. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the performance of the business, including to allocate resources and to evaluate results relative to incentive compensation targets. Investors should consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
