Amgen Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

- July 29th, 2020

Amgen today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2020.

– Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2020.

Key results include:

  • Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, total revenues increased 6% to $6.2 billion in comparison to the second quarter of 2019, driven by higher unit demand, offset partially by lower net selling prices.
    • Product sales increased 6% globally, driven by 13% volume growth across a number of our newer products, including Otezla® (apremilast), MVASI® (bevacizumab-awwb), KANJINTI® (trastuzumab-anns), EVENITY® (romosozumab-aqqg) and Repatha® (evolocumab), offset partially by declines in select products from the impact of COVID-19 and biosimilar and generic competition.
  • GAAP earnings per share (EPS) decreased 15% to $3.05 driven primarily by the amortization of costs associated with our November 2019 acquisition of Otezla, offset partially by increased revenues. Of note, this is the first period to include our share of BeiGene’s net loss under the equity method of accounting.
    • GAAP operating income decreased 13% to $2.3 billion and GAAP operating margin decreased 8.7 percentage points to 39.3%, driven primarily by the amortization of intangible assets from our Otezla acquisition.
  • Non-GAAP EPS increased 7% to $4.25 driven by increased revenues and fewer weighted-average shares outstanding while also taking into account our share of BeiGene’s net loss for the previous quarter as noted above.
    • Non-GAAP operating income increased 9% to $3.2 billion and non-GAAP operating margin increased 1.7 percentage points to 55.0%.
  • The Company generated $2.7 billion of free cash flow in the second quarter versus $1.3 billion in the second quarter of 2019, an increase driven primarily by the timing of tax payments.
  • 2020 total revenues guidance reaffirmed at $25.0-$25.6 billion; EPS guidance revised to $10.73-$11.43 on a GAAP basis and revised to $15.10-$15.75 on a non-GAAP basis.

“As our strong results demonstrate, we continue to reliably supply patients as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Robert A. Bradway, chairman and chief executive officer. “We look forward to several significant pipeline updates in the second half of the year.”

Product Sales Performance

  • Notwithstanding the effects of the pandemic, total product sales increased 6% for the second quarter of 2020 versus the second quarter of 2019 driven by 13% volume growth.
  • COVID-19 impacts: The pandemic interrupted many physician-patient interactions, which led to delays in diagnosis and treatment with varying degrees of impact across our portfolio. Sales of negatively affected products fell most early in the second quarter with sales beginning to recover in the latter weeks of the quarter. As the quarter progressed, our teams increasingly responded to customer needs via remote interactions and also identified innovative solutions to support the delivery of patient care. Our medicines were reliably supplied to patients throughout the quarter.
  • Prolia® (denosumab) sales decreased 6% year-over-year driven by lower unit demand as a result of fewer office visits by osteoporosis patients, a population that is generally older and more vulnerable to COVID-19. Our historical pattern of higher sales in the second quarter was accordingly disrupted, resulting in relatively flat quarter-over-quarter sales. During the month of April, 60% fewer patients in the U.S. were diagnosed with osteoporosis compared to a pre-COVID-19 baseline. In response to the concerns of patients and providers, we worked to identify alternate sites for Prolia administration and have since seen improved sales with many patients returning for therapy as well as increased new patient diagnoses.
  • EVENITY generated $101 million of sales in the second quarter of 2020. Although COVID-19 impacted new patient starts in the U.S. this quarter, we saw a continuous increase in new prescribers. We remain focused on increasing the number of patients and ensuring they receive their full 12 months of therapy. While patient uptake remains strong, we anticipate a slowdown in reported sales in the third quarter as the first half of 2020 benefited from larger shipments to Astellas, our partner in Japan, to ensure they had appropriate inventory.
  • Repatha sales increased 32% year-over-year driven by 69% volume growth, offset partially by lower net selling price. Sales declined 13% quarter-over-quarter driven by unfavorable changes to estimated sales deductions. Although new-to-brand prescriptions (NBRx) in the U.S. for the proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) segment were negatively impacted by COVID-19, Repatha maintained share leadership among new patients, exiting the quarter with approximately 80% share. Repatha’s year-over-year net selling price declined as a result of additional contracting to improve Medicare Part D patient access and patient affordability. We expect net selling price to be relatively stable for the remainder of the year.
  • Aimovig® (erenumab-aooe) sales increased 18% year-over-year driven by 45% volume growth, offset partially by lower net selling price as a result of additional contracting to expand patient access. Aimovig remains the segment leader within the preventative calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) class with 48% share of total prescriptions (TRx) in the quarter. Although NBRx for the total CGRP segment were negatively impacted by COVID-19, Aimovig regained NBRx share leadership exiting the quarter with 41% share. We continue to see improvement in our conversion from free to paid prescriptions and expect net selling price to be relatively stable for the remainder of the year.
  • Parsabiv® (etelcalcetide) sales increased 11% year-over-year driven by higher unit demand, offset partially by lower net selling price. As expected, on July 6, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed a methodology to modify the end-stage renal disease (ESRD) Prospective Payment System (PPS) base rate to include calcimimetics in the ESRD PPS bundled payment in 2021. This proposal is subject to a public comment period and the Final Rule is expected in November 2020.
  • Otezla was acquired in November 2019 and generated $561 million of sales in the second quarter of 2020, reflecting 14% growth year-over-year driven primarily by volume. U.S. Otezla TRx growth remained strong in the quarter. Although NBRx volumes were negatively impacted by COVID-19 early in the quarter, trends have improved since then. From a competitive standpoint, Otezla’s NBRx share of the psoriasis segment grew slightly in the quarter. Otezla provides a convenient oral option with an established safety profile and does not require lab monitoring, making it an attractive option during this COVID-19 period and for physicians practicing telemedicine.
  • Enbrel® (etanercept) sales decreased 9% year-over-year driven by lower unit demand. Consistent with prior periods, Enbrel continued to lose share and the effects of such share loss were compounded by lower growth of the rheumatology segment due to COVID-19. Consistent with other agents within the class, Enbrel experienced a decline in new patients. Of note, earlier this month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed the judgment of the New Jersey District Court upholding the validity of the two patents that describe and claim Enbrel and methods for making it.
  • AMGEVITA (adalimumab) generated $62 million of sales in the second quarter of 2020 and is the most prescribed adalimumab biosimilar in Europe for the fourth consecutive quarter. AMGEVITA sales declined 28% quarter-over-quarter driven by lower net selling prices and reductions in customer inventories following COVID-19-related stocking in the first quarter.
  • KYPROLIS® (carfilzomib) sales decreased 5% year-over-year driven by lower unit demand. This decline was driven by reduced multiple myeloma patient visits to providers due to COVID-19.
  • XGEVA® (denosumab) sales decreased 13% year-over-year driven by lower unit demand. This decline was driven by the impact of COVID-19, including a decrease in patient visits and recently revised treatment recommendations from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) in response to COVID-19 to prioritize primary cancer treatments over bone targeting agents.
  • Vectibix® (panitumumab) sales were relatively flat year-over-year.
  • Nplate® (romiplostim) sales decreased 4% year-over-year driven by unfavorable changes to estimated sales deductions. Volume growth slowed primarily as a result of fewer physician office visits due to COVID-19, and a loss of new patient starts to oral alternatives.
  • BLINCYTO® (blinatumomab) sales increased 19% year-over-year driven by higher unit demand as we continue to see broader adoption in the community hospital setting.
  • MVASI generated $172 million of sales in the second quarter of 2020, with a 39% exit share of the bevacizumab segment in the U.S. Going forward, we expect increased competition in the U.S. given the launch of a competing biosimilar earlier this year.
  • KANJINTI generated $123 million of sales in the second quarter of 2020, with a 32% exit share of the trastuzumab segment in the U.S. The trastuzumab market has become increasingly competitive with the launches of four additional biosimilar products in the U.S. earlier this year.
  • Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim) sales decreased 28% year-over-year driven by the impact of biosimilar competition on net selling price and unit demand. Unit volumes for the overall long-acting granulocyte colony-stimulating factors (G-CSFs) segment grew, supported by the NCCN guidelines, recently revised in response to COVID-19 recommending increased use of long-acting G-CSFs in intermediate risk febrile neutropenia cancer patients. Within the long-acting G-CSF segment, Neulasta Onpro® continues to be the preferred choice for physicians and patients and share increased to 58% this quarter. Onpro provides a unique value proposition during the pandemic as it allows patients to receive their G-CSF treatment without having to return to their doctor’s office or other site of care for administration.
  • NEUPOGEN® (filgrastim) sales decreased 35% year-over-year driven by the impact of competition on unit demand and unfavorable changes to estimated sales deductions.
  • EPOGEN® (epoetin alfa) sales decreased 28% year-over-year driven by lower unit demand and lower net selling price from our existing contractual commitment with DaVita.
  • Aranesp® (darbepoetin alfa) sales decreased 11% year-over-year driven by lower net selling price and the impact of competition on unit demand.
  • Sensipar/Mimpara® (cinacalcet) sales decreased 34% year-over-year driven by the impact of generic competition on unit demand. Supplemental patent protection certificates for cinacalcet have now expired in major European markets and generic launches have begun. We expect ex-U.S. sales to continue to decline in the second half of 2020.

Operating Expense, Operating Margin and Tax Rate Analysis

On a GAAP basis:

  • Total Operating Expenses increased 22% primarily driven by Otezla-related expenses, including the amortization of intangible assets, offset partially by the reduction in certain expenses as a result of COVID-19. Cost of Sales margin increased 7 percentage points driven by amortization expense related to the Otezla acquisition and the benefit of Hurricane Maria insurance proceeds in 2019, offset partially by lower manufacturing costs. Research & Development (R&D) expenses increased 4% driven by higher spend in support of our late-stage development programs, primarily AMG 510 (sotorasib) and our biosimilar programs, along with Otezla, offset partially by recoveries from our collaboration with BeiGene. Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 3% primarily due to Otezla commercial and acquisition-related expenses, offset partially by COVID-19-related deceleration of certain expenses. Other expenses increased due to a legal settlement.
  • Operating Margin decreased 8.7 percentage points to 39.3% driven primarily by the amortization of intangible assets from our Otezla acquisition.
  • Tax Rate decreased 3.8 percentage points due primarily to net favorable items in the quarter, amortization related to the Otezla acquisition and changes in jurisdictional mix of earnings.

On a non-GAAP basis:

  • Total Operating Expenses increased 2% driven by Otezla-related expenses, offset partially by the reduction in certain expenses as a result of COVID-19. Cost of Sales margin decreased 0.4 percentage points driven primarily by lower manufacturing costs, offset partially by an increase in royalties and the benefit of Hurricane Maria insurance proceeds in 2019. R&D expenses increased 3% driven by higher spend in support of our late-stage development programs, primarily AMG 510 (sotorasib) and our biosimilar programs, along with Otezla, offset partially by recoveries from our collaboration with BeiGene. SG&A expenses increased 1% due primarily to Otezla commercial related expenses, offset partially by COVID-19-related deceleration of certain expenses.
  • Operating Margin increased 1.7 percentage points to 55.0%.
  • Tax Rate decreased 1.6 percentage points due primarily to net favorable items in the quarter.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

  • The Company generated $2.7 billion of free cash flow in the second quarter of 2020 versus $1.3 billion in the second quarter of 2019, driven primarily by the timing of tax payments.
  • The Company’s second quarter 2020 dividend of $1.60 per share was declared on March 4, 2020, and was paid on June 8, 2020, to all stockholders of record as of May 18, 2020, representing a 10% increase from 2019.
  • During the second quarter, the Company repurchased 2.6 million shares of common stock at a total cost of $591 million. At the end of the second quarter, the Company had $4.9 billion remaining under its stock repurchase authorization.
  • Cash and investments totaled $11.4 billion as of June 30, 2020, a decrease of $10.3 billion from the quarter ended June 30, 2019. This decrease was primarily due to the Otezla and BeiGene transactions, as well as cash returned to shareholders in the form of share repurchases and dividends, offset partially by free cash flow generated during the period and net proceeds from debt issuances.
  • Additionally, the Company issued $4 billion of long-term debt in May for general corporate purposes, including enhancing our working capital position, given favorable market conditions. Debt outstanding at the end of the quarter totaled $34.2 billion with a weighted-average interest rate of 3.5% and an average maturity of 14 years.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this news release, management has presented its operating results for the second quarters of 2020 and 2019, in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and on a non-GAAP basis. In addition, management has presented its full year 2020 EPS and tax rate guidance in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis. These non-GAAP financial measures are computed by excluding certain items related to acquisitions, restructuring and certain other items from the related GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations for these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the news release. Management has also presented Free Cash Flow (FCF), which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for the second quarters of 2020 and 2019. FCF is computed by subtracting capital expenditures from operating cash flow, each as determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to and facilitates additional analysis by investors. The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to enhance an investor’s overall understanding of the financial performance and prospects for the future of the Company’s ongoing business activities by facilitating comparisons of results of ongoing business operations among current, past and future periods. The Company believes that FCF provides a further measure of the Company’s liquidity.

The Company uses the non-GAAP financial measures set forth in the news release in connection with its own budgeting and financial planning internally to evaluate the performance of the business, including to allocate resources and to evaluate results relative to incentive compensation targets. The non-GAAP financial measures are in addition to, not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains forward-looking statements that are based on the current expectations and beliefs of Amgen. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements, including any statements on the outcome, benefits and synergies of collaborations, or potential collaborations, with any other company, including Adaptive Biotechnologies (including statements regarding such collaboration’s, or our own, ability to discover and develop fully-human neutralizing antibodies targeting SARS-CoV-2 to potentially prevent or treat COVID-19), BeiGene, Ltd., or the Otezla acquisition, including anticipated Otezla sales growth and the timing of non-GAAP EPS accretion, as well as estimates of revenues, operating margins, capital expenditures, cash, other financial metrics, expected legal, arbitration, political, regulatory or clinical results or practices, customer and prescriber patterns or practices, reimbursement activities and outcomes, effects of pandemics or other widespread health problems such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on our business, outcomes, progress, or effects relating to studies of Otezla as a potential treatment for COVID-19, and other such estimates and results. Forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those discussed below and more fully described in the Securities and Exchange Commission reports filed by Amgen, including our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and any subsequent periodic reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K. Unless otherwise noted, 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. Our results may be affected by our ability to successfully market both new and existing products domestically and internationally, clinical and regulatory developments involving current and future products, sales growth of recently launched products, competition from other products including biosimilars, difficulties or delays in manufacturing our products and global economic conditions. In addition, sales of our products are affected by pricing pressure, political and public scrutiny and 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 healthcare cost containment. 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, including our devices, after they are on the market. Our business may be impacted by government investigations, litigation and product liability claims. In addition, our business may be impacted by the adoption of new tax legislation or exposure to additional tax liabilities. 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, or we may fail to prevail in present and future intellectual property litigation. We perform a substantial amount of our commercial manufacturing activities at a few key facilities, including in Puerto Rico, and also depend on third parties for a portion of our manufacturing activities, and limits on supply may constrain sales of certain of our current products and product candidate development. An outbreak of disease or similar public health threat, such as COVID-19, and the public and governmental effort to mitigate against the spread of such disease, could have a significant adverse effect on the supply of materials for our manufacturing activities, the distribution of our products, the commercialization of our product candidates, and our clinical trial operations, and any such events may have a material adverse effect on our product development, product sales, business and results of operations. We rely on collaborations with third parties for the development of some of our product candidates and for the commercialization and sales of some of our commercial products. In addition, we compete with other companies with respect to many of our marketed products as well as for the discovery and development of new products. Discovery or identification of new product candidates or development of new indications for existing products cannot be guaranteed and movement from concept to product is uncertain; consequently, there can be no guarantee that any particular product candidate or development of a new indication for an existing product 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. Certain of our distributors, customers and payers have substantial purchasing leverage in their dealings with us. The discovery of significant problems with a product similar to one of our products that implicate an entire class of products could have a material adverse effect on sales of the affected products and on our business and results of operations. Our efforts to collaborate with or acquire other companies, products or technology, and to integrate the operations of companies or to support the products or technology we have acquired, may not be successful. A breakdown, cyberattack or information security breach could compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our systems and our data. Our stock price is volatile and may be affected by a number of events. 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. We may not be able to access the capital and credit markets on terms that are favorable to us, or at all.

(a) The adjustments related primarily to noncash amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions.
(b) For the three months ended June 30, 2020 the adjustment related primarily to legal settlement expenses. For the six months ended June 30, 2020 the adjustment related primarily to legal settlement expenses and an impairment charge associated with an in-process research and development asset.
(c) For the six months ended June 30, 2020 the adjustment related primarily to a gain from legal judgment proceeds offset partially by amortization of the basis difference from our BeiGene equity method investment.
(d) The tax effect of the adjustments between our GAAP and non-GAAP 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 the majority of amortization of intangible assets, whereas the tax impact of other adjustments, including restructuring initiatives, depends on whether the amounts are deductible in the respective tax jurisdictions 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 and six months ended June 30, 2020, were 18.5% and 19.6%, compared with 23.7% and 23.3% for the corresponding periods of the prior year.
(e) The adjustments related to certain acquisition items and prior period items excluded from GAAP earnings.
