SEGMENT RESULTS

Pharmaceutical Segment

Fourth-quarter revenue for the Pharmaceutical segment decreased 1 percent to $24.3 billion. The decrease, primarily due to brand-to-generic conversions, was mostly offset by revenue from new customers. Segment profit for the quarter increased 15 percent to $354 million, driven by the overall strong performance of generic programs and the benefits of expanded business with new and existing customers, including strong contributions from retail independents. Segment profit also benefited from performance under branded agreements.

For the full year, revenue for the Pharmaceutical segment increased 4 percent to $97.9 billion, and segment profit increased 17 percent to $1.6 billion.
