Shire (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPG), the leading global biotech company focused on rare diseases, announces unaudited results for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

As quoted in the press release:

“Shire is off to a good start in 2018 delivering on our key priorities of commercial execution, pipeline progression, debt pay down, and portfolio optimization. We generated product sales growth of 7% in the first quarter reaching $3.6 billion with important contributions from our Immunology franchise, recently-launched products, and international markets.  We delivered $1.0 billion in net operating cash flow allowing us to remain on track towards our debt pay down target.

“We continue to advance our innovative pipeline with seven programs in registration including lanadelumab, the first monoclonal antibody being evaluated to prevent hereditary angioedema attacks, with the potential to change the treatment paradigm for this serious and sometimes life threatening rare disease.

“As part of the ongoing review of our portfolio, we recently announced an agreement for the sale of our Oncology franchise for $2.4 billion allowing us to unlock embedded value and sharpen our focus.”
