JERUSALEM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 5, 2015-- Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE:TEVA) today reported results for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2014.

“In order to take a great leap forward you must first create a solid foundation from which to drive sustainable profitable growth. 2014 was that year for Teva, where we established a stable underlying base from which we will grow in the coming years. We reenergized our business around our core capabilities and growth engines – regaining our leading position in generics; narrowing the focus on core therapeutic areas in specialty; managing the lifecycle of key products; and significantly improving our operating profitability and cash-flow generation,” stated Erez Vigodman, CEO of Teva. “Looking forward, we will create the most competitive operational network in terms of efficiency, scale and capability and are prioritizing the commercial activities in our markets to ensure leadership and profitability. There is great promise in our specialty and generic pipelines with significant output expected already this year. We will take bold steps forward, both organic and inorganic, to position Teva for sustainable, profitable growth, create value for all of our stakeholders and deliver long-term shareholder return.”

Eyal Desheh, Chief Financial Officer of Teva, stated “Throughout the year, Teva placed great emphasis on the optimization of our global portfolio and the ongoing cost containment efforts, which resulted in an overall improvement in our non-GAAP operating margin of approximately 400 basis points. These efforts contributed to the strong financial results in 2014, which included achieving or exceeding the key metrics of our financial guidance. Teva generated an all-time high cash flow from operations, despite currency headwinds that impacted our annual operating profit by more than $120 million, as well as the expected increase in tax expense. We used a portion of these funds to resume our share repurchase program, purchasing $500 million of our stock in the fourth quarter and paying out more than $1.1 billion in dividends during 2014. We have a strong balance sheet with more than $2.6 billion in cash, about $10 billion in debt and a debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 1.67.”

Generic Medicines Revenues

Generic medicines revenues in the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $2.5 billion, a decrease of 8%, or 3% in local currency terms, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

Generic revenues consisted of:

  • U.S. revenues of $1.2 billion, flat compared to the fourth quarter of 2013, as higher sales of omega-3-acid ethyl esters (the generic equivalent of Lovaza®), capecitabine (the generic equivalent of Xeloda®), celecoxib (the generic equivalent of Celebrex®), raloxifene (the generic equivalent of Evista®) and entecavir (the generic equivalent of Baraclude®) were offset by lower revenues of products launched during 2013, mainly niacin ER (the generic equivalent of Niaspan®), following the loss of exclusivity.
  • European revenues of $759 million, a decrease of 16%, or 9% in local currency terms, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease resulted mainly from our strategy of pursuing profitable and sustainable business in the region, with lower revenues in Germany, France and Spain partially offset by higher revenues in certain other markets. This strategy has led to notable improvements in the profitability of our European generics business.
  • ROW revenues of $532 million, a decrease of 12%, but an increase of 1% in local currency terms, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase in local currency terms was mainly due to higher revenues in Russia and in Latin America, which were largely offset by lower revenues in Japan and Canada.
  • API sales to third parties of $178 million (which is included in the market revenues above), an increase of 2%, or 5% in local currency terms, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

Generic medicines revenues comprised 48% of our total revenues in the quarter, down from 49% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Generic Medicines Gross Profit

Gross profit from our generic medicines segment in the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $1.1 billion, a decrease of 6%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. The lower gross profit was mainly the result of lower revenues, partially offset by higher profitability of products launched in 2014 and of our European portfolio, improved pricing and higher gross profit of our APIs. Gross profit margin for our generic medicines segment in the fourth quarter of 2014 increased to 43.8%, from 43.1% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Generic Medicines Profit

Profit from our generic medicines segment amounted to $561 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of 9% compared to $514 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to our lower S&M expenses and lower R&D expenses, partially offset by lower gross profit. Generic medicines profit as a percentage of generic medicines revenues was 22.7% in the fourth quarter of 2014, up from 19.2% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Specialty Medicines Revenues

Specialty medicines revenues in the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $2.2 billion, an increase of 1%, or 5% in local currency terms, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. U.S. specialty medicines revenues amounted to $1.6 billion, up 6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

ROW specialty medicines revenues amounted to $167 million, down 2%, but up 23% in local currency terms, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

Specialty medicines revenues comprised 43% of our total revenues in the quarter, compared to 41% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The increase in local currency terms of specialty medicines revenues compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 was primarily due to higher sales of our oncology and CNS products, which were partially offset by lower revenues of women’s health products.

The following table presents revenues by therapeutic area and key products for our specialty medicines segment for the three months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013:

Global sales of Copaxone® (20 mg/mL and 40 mg/mL), the leading multiple sclerosis therapy in the U.S. and globally, amounted to $1.1 billion, a decrease of 2%, but an increase of 3% in local currency terms, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

In the United States, sales of Copaxone® amounted to $835 million, up 4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. At the end of the fourth quarter of 2014, according to December 2014 IMS data, our U.S. market shares for the Copaxone® products in terms of new and total prescriptions were 25.9% and 31.5%, respectively.

Sales outside the United States amounted to $286 million, a decrease of 15%, but flat in local currency terms, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013, as higher sales in Russia, due to the timing of a tender in Russia, were offset by lower revenues in other markets.

Our global Azilect® revenues amounted to $108 million, an increase of 10% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013, while global in-market revenues increased 6% to $141 million. The increase in our sales reflects volume growth and a price increase in the United States, as well as volume growth in Europe.

Sales of our oncology products amounted to $335 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of 25% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase resulted primarily from higher sales of Treanda®, as well as of our recently launched G-CSF products, Lonquex® and Granix®. Sales of Treanda® amounted to $226 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $177 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, following the launch of the new liquid formulation of the product in November 2014.

Sales of our respiratory products amounted to $252 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 1% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. ProAir® revenues amounted to $120 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, up 5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013, mainly due to volume growth which was partially offset by pricing variances.

Other Activities

Our OTC revenues related to PGT in the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $227 million, compared to $246 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. In local currency terms, revenues grew 9%. The increase in local currency terms was mainly due to higher sales in Russia and Latin America, partially offset by lower sales in Europe.

PGT’s in-market sales amounted to $372 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of $35 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. In local currency terms, revenues grew 3%. The increase in local currency terms was mainly due to higher sales in Latin America and Asia.

Our revenues from OTC products in the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $228 million, a decrease of 28% or 15% in local currency terms. The decline was mainly due to the sale of our U.S. OTC plants, previously purchased from P&G, back to P&G in July 2014.

Other revenues amounted to $228 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, mostly from the distribution of third-party products in Israel and Hungary, up 4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

Key Metrics for the Fourth Quarter 2014

Non-GAAP information: Net non-GAAP adjustments in the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $438 million. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS for the quarter are adjusted to exclude the following items:

  • Amortization of purchased intangible assets totaling $253 million, of which $244 million is included in cost of goods sold and the remaining $9 million in selling and marketing expenses;
  • Impairment of long lived assets of $179 million;
  • Restructuring and other expenses of $110 million;
  • Regulatory actions taken in facilities of $30 million;
  • Costs associated with cancellation of R&D projects of $27 million;
  • Income in connection with legal settlements and loss contingencies of $44 million; and
  • Related tax benefit of $117 million.

Teva believes that excluding such items facilitates investors' understanding of its business. See the attached tables for a reconciliation of the U.S. GAAP results to the adjusted non-GAAP figures.

Exchange rate differences between the fourth quarter of 2014 and the fourth quarter of 2013 decreased our revenues by $277 million and reduced our non-GAAP operating income by $55 million. Our GAAP operating income was reduced by $41 million.

Non-GAAP gross profit was $3.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2014, down 1% from the fourth quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP gross profit margin was 61.2% in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to 58.9% in the fourth quarter of 2013. GAAP gross profit was $2.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2014, flat compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. GAAP gross profit margin was 55.9% in the quarter, compared to 53.3% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Research and Development (R&D) expenditures (excluding costs associated with cancellation of R&D projects and purchase of in-process R&D) in the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $352 million, compared to $409 million, in the fourth quarter of 2013. R&D expenses were 6.8% of revenues in the quarter, compared to 7.5% in the fourth quarter of 2013. R&D expenses related to our generic medicines segment amounted to $133 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 6% compared to $141 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. R&D expenses related to our specialty medicines segment amounted to $217 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, down 14% compared to $253 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, mainly as a result of lower expenses in our non-core therapeutic areas and timing of expenses related to our respiratory pipeline.

Selling and Marketing (S&M) expenditures (excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets) amounted to $997 million, or 19.3% of revenues, in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $1.1 billion, or 20.6% of revenues, in the fourth quarter of 2013. S&M expenses related to our generic medicines segment amounted to $387 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 23% compared to $500 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, mainly due to lower royalty payments in the United States and to lower expenses in Europe and Russia. This decrease reflects our ongoing cost reduction efforts. S&M expenses related to our specialty medicines segment amounted to $545 million, an increase of 6% compared to $516 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to higher expenditures related to our launches of DuoResp Spiromax®, Lonquex®, Granix® and Adasuve®, as well as preparation for additional product launches planned for 2015.

General and Administrative (G&A) expenditures amounted to $320 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, or 6.2% of revenues, compared with $316 million, or 5.8% of revenues, in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Quarterly non-GAAP operating income was $1.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of 10% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. Quarterly GAAP operating income was $942 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $560 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP financial expenses amounted to $69 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $55 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. GAAP financial expenses for the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $70 million, compared to $59 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The provision for non-GAAP tax for the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $303 million on pre-tax non-GAAP income of $1.4 billion, for a quarterly tax rate of 21%. The provision for non-GAAP tax in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $91 million on non-GAAP pre-tax income of $1.3 billion, or 7%. GAAP tax expenses for the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $186 million on pre-tax income of $872 million, for a quarterly GAAP tax rate of 21%. In the fourth quarter of 2013, tax expenses amounted to $114 million on pre-tax income of $501 million for a quarterly GAAP tax rate of 23%.

The increase in our non-GAAP quarterly tax rate mainly reflects the lapse, in 2013, of our tax exemptions under the previous Israeli tax incentives regime. Our profits in Israel are now generally subject to a tax rate of 9%.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS were $1.1 billion and $1.31, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 7% and 8%, respectively, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. GAAP net income and GAAP diluted EPS were $687 million and $0.80, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2014, up 81% and 78%, respectively, compared to $380 million and $0.45, in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Cash flow from operations generated during the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to $1.8 billion, compared to $0.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase was mainly due to lower payments related to legal settlements. Free cash flow, excluding net capital expenditures amounted to $1.5 billion, compared to $0.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Cash and investments at December 31, 2014 amounted to $2.6 billion.

For the fourth quarter of 2014, the weighted average outstanding shares for the fully diluted earnings per share calculation was 861 million on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. At December 31, 2014, the outstanding shares for calculating Teva's market capitalization were approximately 852 million.

Shareholders’ equity was $23.4 billion at December 31, 2014, compared to $23.7 billion at September 30, 2014. The decrease primarily reflects a negative impact of $0.6 billion due to currency fluctuations, share repurchases of $0.5 billion and dividend payments of $0.3 billion, partially offset by GAAP net income of $0.7 billion, proceeds from exercise of options of $0.2 billion and $0.1 billion of unrealized gains (net) from derivative financial instruments.

Teva's Safe Harbor Statement under the U. S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995:

This release contains forward-looking statements, which are based on management’s current beliefs and expectations and involve a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause our future results, performance or achievements to differ significantly from the results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include risks relating to: our ability to develop and commercialize additional pharmaceutical products; competition for our innovative products, especially Copaxone® (including competition from orally-administered alternatives, as well as from potential purported generic equivalents) and our ability to migrate users to our new 40 mg/mL version; the possibility of material fines, penalties and other sanctions and other adverse consequences arising out of our ongoing FCPA investigations and related matters; our ability to achieve expected results from the research and development efforts invested in our pipeline of specialty and other products; our ability to reduce operating expenses to the extent and during the timeframe intended by our cost reduction program; our ability to identify and successfully bid for suitable acquisition targets or licensing opportunities, or to consummate and integrate acquisitions; the extent to which any manufacturing or quality control problems damage our reputation for quality production and require costly remediation; increased government scrutiny in both the U.S. and Europe of our patent settlement agreements; our exposure to currency fluctuations and restrictions as well as credit risks; the effectiveness of our patents, confidentiality agreements and other measures to protect the intellectual property rights of our specialty medicines; the effects of reforms in healthcare regulation and pharmaceutical pricing, reimbursement and coverage; governmental investigations into sales and marketing practices, particularly for our specialty pharmaceutical products; adverse effects of political or economic instability, major hostilities or acts of terrorism on our significant worldwide operations; interruptions in our supply chain or problems with internal or third-party information technology systems that adversely affect our complex manufacturing processes; significant disruptions of our information technology systems or breaches of our data security; competition for our generic products, both from other pharmaceutical companies and as a result of increased governmental pricing pressures; competition for our specialty pharmaceutical businesses from companies with greater resources and capabilities; the impact of continuing consolidation of our distributors and customers; decreased opportunities to obtain U.S. market exclusivity for significant new generic products; potential liability in the U.S., Europe and other markets for sales of generic products prior to a final resolution of outstanding patent litigation; our potential exposure to product liability claims that are not covered by insurance; any failure to recruit or retain key personnel, or to attract additional executive and managerial talent; any failures to comply with complex Medicare and Medicaid reporting and payment obligations; significant impairment charges relating to intangible assets, goodwill and property, plant and equipment; the effects of increased leverage and our resulting reliance on access to the capital markets; potentially significant increases in tax liabilities; the effect on our overall effective tax rate of the termination or expiration of governmental programs or tax benefits, or of a change in our business; variations in patent laws that may adversely affect our ability to manufacture our products in the most efficient manner; environmental risks; and other factors that are discussed in our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2014 and in our other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
