Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements – (Continued)


In many of these cases, the government or private litigants allege that the responsible parties are jointly and severally liable for the investigation and cleanup costs. Although the liability among the responsible parties, under certain circumstances, may be joint and several, these proceedings are frequently resolved so that the allocation of cleanup and other costs among the parties reflects the relative contributions of the parties to the site conditions and takes into account other pertinent factors. Teva’s potential liability varies greatly at each of the sites in the proceedings or for which claims have been asserted; for some sites the costs of the investigation, cleanup and natural resource damages have not yet been determined, and for others Teva’s allocable share of liability has not been determined. At other sites, Teva has been paying a share of the costs, the amounts of which have not been, and are not expected to be, material. Teva has taken an active role in identifying those costs, to the extent they are identifiable and estimable, which do not include reductions for potential recoveries of cleanup costs from insurers, indemnitors, former site owners or operators or other potentially responsible parties. In addition, enforcement proceedings relating to alleged federal, state, commonwealth or local regulatory violations at some of Teva’s facilities have resulted, or may result, in the imposition of significant penalties (in amounts not expected to materially adversely affect Teva’s results of operations) and the recovery of certain state or commonwealth costs and natural resource damages, and have required, or may require, that corrective measures and enhanced compliance measures be implemented.

NOTE 17 – Segments:

Teva has two reportable segments: generic and specialty medicines. The generic medicines segment develops, manufactures, sells and distributes generic or branded generic medicines. This segment includes Teva’s over-the-counter (“OTC”) business, including PGT, Teva’s consumer healthcare joint venture with P&G. Also included in this segment is Teva’s API manufacturing businesses. The specialty medicines segment engages in the development, manufacture, sale and distribution of branded specialty medicines, most significantly in the core therapeutic areas of central nervous system medicines and respiratory medicines, as well as other therapeutic areas, such as oncology, women’s health and selected other areas.

Teva’s other activities include distribution activities mainly in the United States, Israel and Hungary, sales of medical devices and contract manufacturing services related to divestment of products in connection with the Actavis Generics acquisition and other miscellaneous items.

Following the Actavis Generics and Anda acquisitions in 2016, Teva conducted an analysis of its business segments, resulting in a change to Teva’s segment reporting and goodwill assignment.

Teva’s management reassessed its organizational structure and concluded that in order to enhance its managers’ accountability and gain better control over all activities, its reporting segments will be reorganized as follows, commencing in the fourth quarter of 2016:


    The generic medicines segment includes all Teva legacy generics activity, with the addition of:


    All Actavis activities, excluding contract manufacturing services related to divestment of products in connection with the Actavis Generics acquisition; and


    Teva’s OTC business.


    The specialty medicines segment includes all Teva specialty activity without any change.


    Other non-segment activities include other Teva business (excluding the OTC business), with the addition of:


    Contract manufacturing services related to divestment of products in connection with the Actavis Generics acquisition; and


    Anda’s distribution activity.

All the above changes were reflected through retroactive revision of prior period segment information.

Teva’s chief executive officer, who is the chief operating decision maker (“CODM”), reviews financial information prepared on a consolidated basis, accompanied by disaggregated information about revenues and contributed profit by the two identified reportable segments, namely generic and specialty medicines to make decisions about resources to be allocated to the segments and assess their performance.
