*The pro forma revenues assume the company’s acquisition of Celgene (Celgene Acquisition) and its divestiture of Otezla® to Amgen Inc. (Otezla® Divestiture) occurred on January 1, 2019 and exclude foreign currency hedge gains and losses. Management believes that measuring revenue rates on a comparable pro forma basis is an appropriate way for investors to best understand the underlying performance of the business. The pro forma revenue is presented for informational purposes only and does not purport to represent what the company’s results of operations or financial position would have been if the company’s planned acquisition of MyoKardia, Inc. (MyoKardia) occurred on January 1, 2019 nor does it purport to project the results of operations or financial position for any future period or as of any future date. See “Worldwide Pro Forma Revenue” in Quarterly Package of Financial Information for this quarter, which is available on bms.com/investors/financial-reporting/quarterly-results, for information on the revenue of the company and Celgene on a stand-alone basis for the prior-year period.

THIRD QUARTER FINANCIAL RESULTS

All comparisons are made versus the same period in 2019 unless otherwise stated.

  • Bristol Myers Squibb posted third quarter revenues of $10.5 billion, an increase of 75% on a reported basis and 6% on a pro forma basis. The increase was driven primarily by the impact of the Celgene Acquisition, which was completed on November 20, 2019.
  • U.S. revenues increased 88% to $6.5 billion in the quarter. International revenues increased 58% to $4.0 billion in the quarter. When adjusted for foreign exchange impact, international revenues increased 57%.
  • Gross margin as a percentage of revenue increased from 70.2% to 76.3% in the quarter primarily due to product mix, partially offset by the unwinding of inventory purchase price accounting adjustments.
  • Marketing, selling and administrative expenses increased 62% to $1.7 billion in the quarter primarily due to $500 million of costs associated with the broader portfolio resulting from the Celgene Acquisition.
  • Research and development expenses increased 81% to $2.5 billion in the quarter primarily due to $900 million of costs associated with the broader portfolio resulting from the Celgene Acquisition.
  • Amortization of acquired intangible assets was $2.5 billion in the quarter primarily due to the Celgene Acquisition.
  • The effective tax rate was 16.8% in the quarter. The effective tax benefit rate was 1.3% in the same period a year ago due to jurisdictional tax rates and other tax impacts attributed to pension settlement charges and the UPSA business divestiture gain.
  • The company reported net earnings attributable to Bristol Myers Squibb of $1.9 billion, or $0.82 per share, in the third quarter, compared to net earnings of $1.4 billion, or $0.83 per share, for the same period a year ago. The results in the current quarter include costs and expenses resulting from purchase price accounting, contingent value rights fair value adjustments, equity investment gains and other acquisition and integration expenses.
  • The company reported non-GAAP net earnings attributable to Bristol Myers Squibb of $3.7 billion, or $1.63 per share, in the third quarter, compared to non-GAAP net earnings of $1.9 billion, or $1.17 per share, for the same period a year ago. A discussion of the non-GAAP financial measures is included under the “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information” section.

The 2020 non-GAAP EPS guidance further excludes other specified items as discussed under “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information.” A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measure and the reasons why management believes the use of these measures is important are provided in supplemental materials available on the company’s website. The 2021 non-GAAP EPS guidance incorporates the expected dilution from the MyoKardia acquisition. For the 2021 non-GAAP EPS guidance, there is no reliable or reasonably estimable comparable GAAP measure as discussed below.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP earnings and related EPS information that are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses and other specified items that are evaluated on an individual basis. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are available on the company’s website at www.bms.com.

These non-GAAP items are adjusted after considering their quantitative and qualitative aspects and typically have one or more of the following characteristics, such as being highly variable, difficult to project, unusual in nature, significant to the results of a particular period or not indicative of future operating results. Similar charges or gains were recognized in prior periods and will likely reoccur in future periods, including amortization of acquired intangible assets beginning in the fourth quarter of 2019, including product rights that generate a significant portion of our ongoing revenue, unwind of inventory fair value adjustments, acquisition and integration expenses, restructuring costs, accelerated depreciation and impairment of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets, R&D charges or other income resulting from upfront or contingent milestone payments in connection with the acquisition or licensing of third-party intellectual property rights, costs of acquiring a priority review voucher, divestiture gains or losses, stock compensation resulting from accelerated vesting of Celgene awards, certain retention-related employee compensation charges related to the Celgene Acquisition, pension, legal and other contractual settlement charges, interest expense on the notes issued in May 2019 incurred prior to the Celgene Acquisition and interest income earned on the net proceeds of those notes, equity investment and contingent value rights fair value adjustments and amortization of fair value adjustments of debt acquired from Celgene in our 2019 exchange offer, among other items. Deferred and current income taxes attributed to these items are also adjusted for considering their individual impact to the overall tax expense, deductibility and jurisdictional tax rates. Certain other significant tax items are also excluded such as the impact resulting from internal transfer of intangible assets and the Otezla® Divestiture. This earnings release also provides international revenues excluding the impact of foreign exchange.

Non-GAAP information is intended to portray the results of the company’s baseline performance, supplement or enhance management, analysts and investors overall understanding of the company’s underlying financial performance and facilitate comparisons among current, past and future periods. For example, non-GAAP earnings and EPS information are indications of the company’s baseline performance before items that are considered by us to not be reflective of the company’s ongoing results. In addition, this information is among the primary indicators that we use as a basis for evaluating performance, allocating resources, setting incentive compensation targets and planning and forecasting for future periods. This information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings or diluted EPS prepared in accordance with GAAP and may not be the same as or comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies due to possible differences in method and in the items being adjusted. We encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets were previously included in non-GAAP earnings and EPS information. These amounts have become significant to the financial results subsequent to the Celgene Acquisition and as a result, have been excluded in the non-GAAP results to better reflect our core operating performance. Comparable prior period non-GAAP results have not been revised to include this adjustment as the related amounts were insignificant ($25 million and $73 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively).

In connection with presenting our outlook, we are also affirming our non-GAAP EPS guidance for 2021. There is no reliable or reasonably estimable comparable GAAP measure for this because we are not able to reliably predict the impact of specified items beyond the next twelve months. As a result, the reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable effort. In addition, the company believes such a reconciliation would imply a degree of precision and certainty that could be confusing to investors. The variability of the specified items may have a significant and unpredictable impact on our future GAAP results.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This earnings release and the related attachments (as well as the oral statements made with respect to information contained in this release and the attachments) contain certain “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, regarding, among other things, statements relating to goals, plans and projections regarding the company’s financial position, results of operations, market position, product development and business strategy. These statements may be identified by the fact they use words such as “should,” “could,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “target,” “may,” “project,” “guidance,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “will” and other words and terms of similar meaning and expression in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance, although not all forward-looking statements contain such terms. One can also identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements are likely to relate to, among other things, the company’s ability to execute successfully its strategic plans, including its business development strategy generally and in relation to its ability to realize the projected benefits of the Celgene Acquisition and to complete and realize the anticipated benefits of its proposed acquisition of MyoKardia, the full extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the company’s operations and the development and commercialization of its products, including the increased possibility that the COVID-19 pandemic could delay the timing of the FDA’s approval decisions for liso-cel and ide-cel, the expiration of patents or data protection on certain products, including assumptions about the company’s ability to retain patent exclusivity of certain products, and the result of governmental investigations. No forward-looking statement can be guaranteed, including that the company’s future clinical studies will support the data described in this release, product candidates will receive necessary clinical and manufacturing regulatory approvals, pipeline products will prove to be commercially successful, clinical and manufacturing regulatory approvals will be sought or obtained within currently expected timeframes or contractual milestones will be achieved.

Such forward-looking statements are based on historical performance and current expectations and projections about the company’s future financial results, goals, plans and objectives and involve inherent risks, assumptions and uncertainties, including internal or external factors that could delay, divert or change any of them in the next several years, that are difficult to predict, may be beyond the company’s control and could cause the company’s future financial results, goals, plans and objectives to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, the statements. Such risks, uncertainties and other matters include, but are not limited to, risks relating to integrating the company’s and Celgene’s business and operations, including with respect to human capital management, portfolio rationalization, finance and accounting systems, sales operations and product distribution, pricing systems and methodologies, data security systems, compliance programs and internal controls processes, on the company’s ability to realize the anticipated benefits from the Celgene Acquisition; the impact of the company’s significant additional indebtedness that it incurred and its issuance of additional shares in connection with the Celgene Acquisition on its ability to operate the combined company; various risks related to public health outbreaks, epidemics and pandemics, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the company’s operations, the increased possibility of the COVID-19 pandemic delaying the timing of the FDA’s approval decisions (especially concerning the BLAs for liso-cel and ide-cel and that the company cannot reasonably assess or predict at this time the full extent of the adverse effect that the COVID-19 pandemic will have on its business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows; the conditions to complete the company’s proposed acquisition of MyoKardia not being satisfied or waived or the acquisition not being completed; the company’s ability to realize the anticipated benefits from the company’s proposed acquisition of MyoKardia if completed; challenges inherent in new product development, including obtaining and maintaining regulatory approval; increasing pricing pressures from market access, pharmaceutical pricing controls and discounting and other restrictions in the United States, the European Union and other regions around the world (including changes in rules and practices of managed care organizations and institutional and governmental purchasers and the proposals contained in the “American Patient First Blueprint” and the executive orders issued by the U.S. federal government in July 2020 designed to regulate prices and payment for pharmaceutical products); the possibility of difficulties and delays in product introduction and commercialization; the company’s ability to obtain and protect market exclusivity rights and enforce patents and other intellectual property rights; the risk of certain novel approaches to disease treatment (such as CAR T therapy); industry competition from other manufacturers; the risk of an adverse patent litigation decision or settlement and exposure to other litigation and/or regulatory actions; the impact of any U.S. healthcare reform and legislation or regulatory action in the U.S. and markets outside the U.S. affecting pharmaceutical product pricing, reimbursement or access; changes in tax law and regulations; any decline in the company’s future royalty streams; the failure of the company’s suppliers, vendors, outsourcing partners, alliance partners and other third parties to meet their contractual, regulatory and other obligations; the company’s ability to execute its financial, strategic and operational plans; the company’s ability to identify potential strategic acquisitions, licensing opportunities or other beneficial transactions; the company’s ability to attract and retain key personnel; the company’s ability to effectively manage acquisitions, divestitures, alliances and other portfolio actions and to successfully realize the expected benefits of such actions; the company’s dependency on several key products; potential difficulties, delays and disruptions in manufacturing, distribution or sale of products, including without limitation, interruptions caused by damage to the company’s and the company’s suppliers’ manufacturing sites; regulatory decisions impacting labeling, manufacturing processes and/or other matters; the impact on the company’s competitive position from counterfeit or unregistered versions of its products or stolen products; the adverse impact of cyber-attacks on the company’s information systems or products, including unauthorized disclosure of trade secrets or other confidential data stored in the company’s information systems and networks; political and financial instability of international economies and sovereign risk; interest rate and currency exchange rate fluctuations, credit and foreign exchange risk management; and issuance of new or revised accounting standards. In addition, the 2020 and 2021 financial guidance provided in this release relies on assumptions about the duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, timing of the return to a more stable business environment, patient and physician behaviors, buying patterns and clinical trial activities (together, the “Recovery Process”), among other things. If the actual Recovery Process differs materially from our assumptions, the impact of COVID-19 on our business could be worse than expected and our results may be negatively impacted.

Forward-looking statements in this earnings release should be evaluated together with the many risks and uncertainties that affect the company’s business and market, particularly those identified in the cautionary statement and risk factors discussion in the company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, as updated by the company’s subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The forward-looking statements included in this document are made only as of the date of this document and except as otherwise required by applicable law, the company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, changed circumstances or otherwise.
