Product Sales

Total product sales for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $5.7 billion, compared to $5.8 billion for the same period in 2017. Product sales for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $4.5 billion in the United States, $813 million in Europe and $398 million in other locations. Product sales for the fourth quarter of 2017 were $4.1 billion in the United States, $1.1 billion in Europe and $553 million in other locations.

Total product sales in 2018 were $21.7 billion, compared to $25.7 billion in 2017. For 2018, product sales were $16.2 billion in the United States, $3.7 billion in Europe and $1.8 billion in other locations. For 2017, product sales were $18.1 billion in the United States, $5.0 billion in Europe and $2.6 billion in other locations.

  • HIV product sales were $4.1 billion for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $3.4 billion for the same period in 2017. For 2018, HIV product sales were $14.6 billion compared to $13.0 billion in 2017. The increases were primarily due to the launch of Biktarvy® (bictegravir 50 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir alafenamide 25 mg) in 2018 and the continued uptake of Descovy® (emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir alafenamide 25 mg), Genvoya® (elvitegravir 150 mg/cobicistat 150 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir alafenamide 10 mg) and Odefsey® (emtricitabine 200 mg/rilpivirine 25 mg/tenofovir alafenamide 25 mg).
  • Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) product sales, which consist of Epclusa® (sofosbuvir 400 mg/velpatasvir 100 mg), Harvoni® (ledipasvir 90 mg/sofosbuvir 400 mg), Vosevi® (sofosbuvir 400 mg/velpatasvir 100 mg/voxilaprevir 100 mg) and Sovaldi® (sofosbuvir 400 mg), were $738 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $1.5 billion for the same period in 2017. For 2018, HCV product sales were $3.7 billion compared to $9.1 billion in 2017. The declines were primarily due to lower average net selling price and lower sales volume of Harvoni and Epclusa across all major markets as a result of increased competition and lower patient starts.
  • Yescarta® (axicabtagene ciloleucel), which was launched in the United States in October 2017, generated $81 million in sales during the fourth quarter of 2018 and $264 million in sales in 2018.
  • Other product sales, which include products from Gilead’s chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV), cardiovascular, oncology and other categories inclusive of Vemlidy® (tenofovir alafenamide 25 mg), Viread® (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg), Letairis® (ambrisentan 5 mg and 10 mg), Ranexa® (ranolazine 500 mg and 1000 mg), Zydelig® (idelalisib 150 mg) and AmBisome® (amphotericin B liposome for injection 50 mg/vial), were $797 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $886 million for the same period in 2017. For 2018, other product sales were $3.1 billion compared to $3.5 billion in 2017.

        December 31,     December 31,
(In millions, except percentages)       2018     2017     2018     2017
Cost of goods sold       $ 1,570       $ 1,256       $ 4,853       $ 4,371  
Non-GAAP cost of goods sold       $ 1,257       $ 966       $ 3,590       $ 3,422

Non-GAAP product gross margin       77.9 %     83.5 %     83.4 %     86.7 %
                                   

For the fourth quarter and full year 2018, compared to the same periods in 2017:

  • Cost of goods sold and non-GAAP cost of goods sold increased primarily due to reserves for excess raw material inventory. In the fourth quarter of 2018, inventory reserves of $410 million, or approximately $0.31 per diluted share, were recorded for excess raw materials primarily due to a sustained decrease in demand for Harvoni. The full year cost of goods sold also increased due to amortization expense related to intangible assets acquired in connection with Gilead’s acquisition of Kite.
  • Product gross margin and non-GAAP product gross margin decreased primarily due to the factors noted above.

Operating Expenses

        Three Months Ended     Twelve Months Ended
        December 31,     December 31,
(In millions)       2018     2017     2018     2017
Research and development (R&D) expenses       $ 1,950       $ 1,150       $ 5,018       $ 3,734

For the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to the same period in 2017:

  • R&D expenses increased primarily due to an $820 million impairment charge related to in-process R&D (IPR&D) for the KITE-585 program (an anti-BCMA being evaluated for the treatment of multiple myeloma), up-front collaboration expenses and higher investments to support the growth of Gilead’s business following the acquisition of Kite, partially offset by Gilead’s purchase of Cell Design Labs, Inc. in 2017.
  • SG&A expenses decreased primarily due to lower stock-based compensation expenses associated with the acquisition of Kite, partially offset by higher investments to support the growth of Gilead’s business following the acquisition of Kite.
  • Non-GAAP R&D expenses and non-GAAP SG&A expenses increased primarily due to higher investments to support the growth of Gilead’s business following the acquisition of Kite.

For the full year 2018, compared to 2017:

  • R&D expenses increased primarily due to an $820 million impairment charge related to IPR&D for the KITE-585 program, up-front collaboration expenses, a full year of investments to support the growth of Gilead’s business following the acquisition of Kite and higher stock-based compensation expenses associated with the acquisition of Kite.
  • SG&A expenses increased primarily due to a full year of investments to support the growth of Gilead’s business following the acquisition of Kite, partially offset by lower acquisition-related costs associated with the acquisition of Kite.
  • Non-GAAP R&D expenses and non-GAAP SG&A expenses increased primarily due to a full year of investments to support the growth of Gilead’s business following the acquisition of Kite.

Product & Pipeline Updates announced by Gilead during the Fourth Quarter of 2018 include:

HIV and Liver Diseases Programs

  • Announced that the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) approved Harvoni in China for the treatment of HCV genotype 1-6 infection in adults and adolescents aged 12 to 18 years.
  • Announced that the NMPA approved Descovy in China for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults and adolescents.
  • Announced that the NMPA approved Vemlidy in China for the treatment of chronic HBV infection in adults and adolescents.
  • Presented data at The Liver Meeting® 2018, which included the announcement of:
    • Results from studies investigating Epclusa in HCV infected patients with severe renal impairment undergoing dialysis and Harvoni in pediatric HCV patients aged three to five years, adding to the efficacy and safety profile of sofosbuvir-based regimens across diverse patient populations.
    • Results from Gilead’s HBV cure development program.
    • Results from Gilead’s clinical development program for advanced fibrosis due to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Data presented support the ongoing development of Gilead’s investigational compounds, evaluate the utility of noninvasive tests for the identification of patients with advanced fibrosis and demonstrate the significant burden of disease in affected patients.
    • Results demonstrating that treatment with GS-9674, an investigational, selective, nonsteroidal farnesoid X receptor agonist, led to significant improvements in liver biochemistry and markers of cholestasis in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis.
  • Presented data at the 2018 HIV Glasgow conference, which included the announcement of 96-week results from a Phase 3, randomized, double-blinded study evaluating the safety and efficacy of Biktarvy for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in treatment-naïve adults. In the ongoing study, Biktarvy was found to be statistically non-inferior to a regimen of dolutegravir and emtricitabine/tenofovir alafenamide through 96 weeks of therapy.

Oncology and Cell Therapy Programs

  • Presented data at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology, which included the announcement of:
    • Updated results from ZUMA-3, a single-arm Phase 1/2 study evaluating KTE-X19 (formerly KTE-C19), an investigational CD19 chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy, in adult patients with relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia. With a median follow-up of 15.1 months following a single infusion of KTE-X19, 69% of evaluable patients achieved complete tumor remission, defined as complete remission (CR) or CR with incomplete hematological recovery. The rate of undetectable minimal residual disease in patients who achieved complete tumor remission was 100%.
    • Two-year efficacy and safety data from the pivotal ZUMA-1 trial of Yescarta in patients with refractory large B-cell lymphoma. With a minimum follow-up of two years after a single infusion of Yescarta (median follow up of 27.1 months), 39% of patients were in an ongoing response.

Forward-looking Statements

Statements included in this press release that are not historical in nature are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Gilead cautions readers that forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. These risks and uncertainties include: Gilead’s ability to achieve its anticipated full year 2019 financial results; Gilead’s ability to sustain growth in revenues for its antiviral and other programs; the risk that private and public payers may be reluctant to provide, or continue to provide, coverage or reimbursement for new products, including Yescarta and Biktarvy; austerity measures in European countries that may increase the amount of discount required on Gilead’s products; an increase in discounts, chargebacks and rebates due to ongoing contracts and future negotiations with commercial and government payers; a larger than anticipated shift in payer mix to more highly discounted payer segments and geographic regions and decreases in treatment duration; availability of funding for state AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs); continued fluctuations in ADAP purchase driven by federal and state grant cycles as well as purchase by retail pharmacies and other non-wholesaler locations with whom we have no inventory management agreements may not mirror patient demand and may cause fluctuations in Gilead’s earnings; market share and price erosion caused by the introduction of generic versions of Viread and Truvada; an uncertain global macroeconomic environment; potential amendments to the Affordable Care Act or other government action that could have the effect of lowering prices or reducing the number of insured patients; Gilead’s ability to initiate clinical trials in its currently anticipated timeframes; the levels of inventory held by wholesalers and retailers which may cause fluctuations in Gilead’s earnings; Gilead’s ability to develop products under the collaborations with Agenus Inc., Scholar Rock Holding Corporation and Tango Therapeutics, Inc.; Gilead’s ability to submit new drug applications for new product candidates in the timelines currently anticipated; Gilead’s ability to receive regulatory approvals in a timely manner or at all, for new and current products; Gilead’s ability to successfully commercialize its products, including Yescarta; the risk that physicians and patients may not see advantages of these products over other therapies and may therefore be reluctant to prescribe the products; safety and efficacy data from clinical studies may not warrant further development of Gilead’s product candidates, including GS-9674, KTE-X19 and product candidates evaluated for advanced fibrosis due to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and under Gilead’s HBV cure program; Gilead’s ability to pay dividends or complete its share repurchase program due to changes in its stock price, corporate or other market conditions; fluctuations in the foreign exchange rate of the U.S. dollar that may cause an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact on Gilead’s future revenues and pre-tax earnings; and other risks identified from time to time in Gilead’s reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC). In addition, Gilead makes estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosures. Gilead bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other market specific and other relevant assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. There may be other factors of which Gilead is not currently aware that may affect matters discussed in the forward-looking statements and may also cause actual results to differ significantly from these estimates. Further, results for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of operating results for any future periods. You are urged to consider statements that include the words may, will, would, could, should, might, believes, estimates, projects, potential, expects, plans, anticipates, intends, continues, forecast, designed, goal or the negative of those words or other comparable words to be uncertain and forward-looking.
