 Lilly Reports Second-Quarter 2019 Financial Results, Raises 2019 EPS Guidance
   Tuesday, July 30, 2019 6:25:00 AM ET

INDIANAPOLIS, July 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2019.






























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's portfolio of newer medicines reached more patients in the second quarter, allowing the company to grow revenue despite headwinds, including the expiration of the U.S. patent for Cialis," said David A. Ricks, Lilly's chairman and CEO. "We are continuing to make significant investments in our business to ensure the success of our recent product launches. At the same time, we are expanding investment in our pipeline in order to develop new medicines that have the potential to more effectively treat patients that have diabetes, cancer, autoimmune disorders and other serious conditions."

Key Events Over the Last Three Months

Regulatory

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Cyramza® as a single agent for the treatment of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who have an alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) of =400 ng/mL and have been treated with sorafenib.
  • The FDA approved Emgality® for the treatment of episodic cluster headache in adults.
  • The FDA approved Baqsimi™ (glucagon) nasal powder 3 mg for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia in people with diabetes ages four years and above.
  • The FDA granted Fast Track designation to empagliflozin for the reduction of the risk of cardiovascular death and hospitalization for heart failure in people with chronic heart failure.
  • Based on an assessment of the totality of subcutaneous tanezumab data and an initial discussion with the FDA during second-quarter 2019, the company and Pfizer have decided to pursue a U.S. regulatory submission for tanezumab in patients with moderate-to-severe osteoarthritis that is expected to be filed with the FDA by the first quarter of 2020, to be followed by potential regulatory filings in the EU and Japan. At this time, regulatory submissions are not planned for tanezumab in patients with moderate-to-severe chronic low back pain. The company and Pfizer intend to maintain an open dialogue with regulatory authorities on potential future regulatory pathways for tanezumab.

Clinical

  • The company announced that Verzenio® demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in overall survival in a Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating Verzenio in combination with fulvestrant for the treatment of women with hormone receptor-positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) advanced or metastatic breast cancer previously treated with endocrine therapy. The results were from a pre-planned interim analysis and are definitive. The company plans to submit these data to regulatory authorities and present the detailed data at an upcoming medical meeting later this year.
  • The company announced that the clinical trial studying higher investigational doses (3.0 mg and 4.5 mg) of Trulicity® met its primary efficacy endpoint of superiority, significantly reducing HbA1c from baseline in people with type 2 diabetes, compared to once-weekly Trulicity 1.5 mg after 36 weeks. The trial also met the secondary efficacy endpoint for superiority on weight reduction. The safety and tolerability profile of the investigational dulaglutide doses was consistent with the known profile of Trulicity 1.5 mg. The clinical trial will continue through 52 weeks to evaluate longer-term safety data and is expected to complete in late 2019. The company plans to submit to regulatory authorities by late 2019 and will share detailed results at a future date.

Business Development/Other Developments

  • The company announced a license agreement to acquire the exclusive worldwide rights for CNTX-0290 from Centrexion Therapeutics Corporation. CNTX-0290 is a novel, small molecule somatostatin receptor type 4 agonist that is currently being studied in Phase 1 clinical testing as a potential non-opioid treatment for chronic pain conditions.

Second-Quarter Reported Results

In the second quarter of 2019, worldwide revenue was $5.637 billion, an increase of 1 percent compared with the second quarter of 2018. The increase in revenue was driven by a 6 percent increase due to volume, partially offset by a 3 percent decrease due to lower realized prices, and a 2 percent decrease due to the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange rates.

Revenue in the U.S. was essentially flat at $3.253 billion, as increased volume of 5 percent was almost entirely offset by lower realized prices. Increased U.S. volume for key growth products including Trulicity,  Taltz®, Jardiance®, Verzenio®, Basaglar®, and Emgality, was largely offset by decreased volume for products that have lost exclusivity, including Cialis® and Adcirca®, as well as the impact from the impending product withdrawal of Lartruvo. U.S. prices were negatively impacted by increased coverage gap funding requirements in Medicare Part D, primarily driven by Trulicity and Humalog®.

Revenue outside the U.S. increased 2 percent, to $2.384 billion, driven by increased volume of 9 percent, which was primarily from key growth products, including Trulicity, Olumiant®, Taltz, Jardiance, and Verzenio. The increase in revenue due to volume was largely offset by the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange rates and, to a lesser extent, lower realized prices.

Gross margin increased 4 percent, to $4.512 billion, in the second quarter of 2019 compared with the second quarter of 2018. Gross margin as a percent of revenue was 80.0 percent, an increase of 2.1 percentage points compared with the second 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 and the impact of lower realized prices on revenue.

Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2019, defined as the sum of research and development and marketing, selling, and administrative expenses, increased 8 percent to $2.989 billion compared with the second quarter of 2018. Research and development expenses increased 10 percent to $1.402 billion, or 24.9 percent of revenue, driven by higher development expenses for late-stage assets. Marketing, selling, and administrative expenses increased 7 percent, to $1.586 billion, primarily due to increased marketing expenses to support the recent U.S. launch of Emgality, as well as other key growth products.

In the second quarter of 2019, the company recognized acquired in-process research and development charges of $25.0 million, related to the previously announced business development transaction with Avidity Biosciences, Inc. In the second quarter of 2018, the company recognized acquired in-process research and development charges of $1.624 billion, related to the acquisitions of ARMO BioSciences and AurKa Pharma, as well as a collaboration with Sigilon Therapeutics.

Operating income (loss) in the second quarter of 2019 was income of $1.498 billion, compared to a loss of $4.9 million in the second quarter of 2018. The increase in operating income was primarily driven by lower acquired in-process research and development charges.

Other income (expense) was expense of $32.4 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared with income of $46.6 million in the second quarter of 2018. The decrease in other income was primarily driven by higher net interest expense.

The effective tax rate was 9.5 percent in the second quarter of 2019, reflecting a net discrete tax benefit resulting from the resolution of certain global income tax audits. During the second quarter of 2018, the company incurred $273.3 million of tax expense, despite earning $41.7 million of income before taxes, as a result of the non-deductible acquired in-process research and development charges totaling $1.558 billion related to the acquisitions of ARMO BioSciences and AurKa Pharma.

In the second quarter of 2019, net income and earnings per share were $1.327 billion and $1.44, respectively, compared with a net loss of $259.9 million and loss per share of $0.25 in the second quarter of 2018. The increases in net income and earnings per share in the second quarter of 2019 were primarily driven by lower acquired in-process research and development charges. Earnings per share in the second quarter of 2019 benefited compared to the second quarter of 2018 as a result of the Elanco exchange offer and share repurchases.

Second-Quarter Non-GAAP Measures

On a non-GAAP basis, second-quarter 2019 gross margin increased 2 percent, to $4.563 billion compared with the second quarter of 2018. Gross margin as a percent of revenue was 81.0 percent, an increase of 1.2 percentage points. The increase in gross margin percent was primarily due to the favorable effect of foreign exchange rates on international inventories sold and greater manufacturing efficiencies, partially offset by unfavorable product mix and the impact of lower realized prices on revenue.

Operating income on a non-GAAP basis decreased $122.7 million, or 7 percent, to $1.575 billion in the second quarter of 2019 compared with the second quarter of 2018, due to higher operating expenses, partially offset by higher gross margin.

The effective tax rate on a non-GAAP basis was 10.0 percent in the second quarter of 2019, compared with 16.7 percent in the second quarter of 2018. The lower effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2019 was primarily driven by a net discrete tax benefit resulting from the resolution of certain global income tax audits, as well as timing associated with the impact of U.S. tax reform.

On a non-GAAP basis, in the second quarter of 2019, net income decreased 3 percent, to $1.388 billion, while earnings per share increased 1 percent, to $1.50, compared with $1.431 billion and $1.48, respectively, in the second quarter of 2018. The decrease in net income was driven by lower operating income and, to a lesser extent, lower other income, partially offset by lower tax expense. Earnings per share increased due to a reduction in weighted average shares outstanding resulting from the company's share repurchase program. Non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding for both periods have been reduced by the approximately 65 million shares retired in the Elanco exchange offer.

For further detail of non-GAAP measures, see the reconciliation below as well as the Reconciliation of GAAP Reported to Selected Non-GAAP Adjusted Information table later in this press release.

2019 Financial Guidance

The company has updated certain elements of its 2019 financial guidance. On a reported basis, earnings per share for 2019 are now expected to be in the range of $8.58 to $8.68. On a non-GAAP basis, earnings per share are now expected to be in the range of $5.67 to $5.77.

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's 2019 non-GAAP financial guidance excludes the discontinued operations results for 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 and Olumiant. Revenue growth is also expected to benefit from the recent launch of Emgality and could benefit from the potential approval and launch of other medicines in 2019. 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, continued low- to mid-single digit realized price declines 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 impending 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 now 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 expense between $0 million and $150 million.

The 2019 effective tax rate is now expected to be in the range of 14 percent to 15 percent on a reported basis and 13 percent to 14 percent on a non-GAAP basis.

The following table summarizes the company's 2019 financial guidance:
