Executive Commentary

Viatris CEO Scott A. Smith said: "2023 was an outstanding year for Viatris in which we delivered strong operational results, streamlined the Company and finished the year with our third consecutive quarter of operational revenue growth. As we begin 2024, we are already executing on our vision for our next chapter—balancing the return of capital to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends, continuing to fuel our base business and investing in future growth with today's announcement of what we expect will be a strategically significant global research and development collaboration with Idorsia. We remain focused on the many opportunities we see this year and beyond to continue to deliver on our mission to empower people worldwide to live healthier at every stage of life."

Viatris President Rajiv Malik said: "As we close Phase 1 of our strategy, I am incredibly proud of all that we have accomplished to integrate, simplify and, more importantly, stabilize the base business. Our strong results in 2023 reflect our consistent operational and scientific execution. Based on the stability of our core business and our deep pipeline, we believe the Company is well positioned for continued growth in 2024 and beyond."

Viatris CFO Sanjeev Narula said: "The Company had another solid year, we met our financial guidance and continued to generate strong and durable cash flow. Our substantial cash flow over the last three years has enabled us to execute on our capital allocation commitments in Phase 1 of debt paydown, business development and capital return. We believe we are in a strong financial position with the return to organic revenue growth serving to further strengthen our foundation and position us well for 2024 and beyond."

[1] With respect to the 2023 guidance ranges provided on November 7, 2023, Viatris did not provide forward-looking guidance for U.S. GAAP net earnings (loss) or a quantitative reconciliation of its 2023 Adjusted EBITDA guidance. U.S. GAAP net cash provided by operating activities for 2023 was estimated to be between $2.8 billion and $3.1 billion. As previously disclosed, such guidance ranges included the full year expected performance for the planned divestitures and excluded any potential related costs, such as taxes and transaction costs, as well as any similar costs related to the eye care acquisitions, and also excluded any acquired IPR&D. Please see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for additional information.

[2] For the quarter ended December 31, 2023, total net sales declined 1% on a U.S. GAAP basis and increased 1% on a divestiture-adjusted operational basis.

2024 Financial Guidance

The Company is providing the following financial guidance metrics for fiscal year 2024.

The Company is not providing forward-looking guidance for U.S. GAAP net earnings (loss) or U.S. GAAP earnings per share (EPS) or a quantitative reconciliation of its 2024 adjusted EBITDA or adjusted EPS guidance to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures, U.S. GAAP net earnings (loss) or U.S. GAAP EPS, respectively, because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of certain significant items, including integration, acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, restructuring expenses, asset impairments, litigation settlements, and other contingencies, such as changes to contingent consideration, acquired IPR&D and certain other gains or losses, including for the fair value accounting for non-marketable equity investments, as well as related income tax accounting, because certain of these items have not occurred, are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could have a material impact on U.S. GAAP reported results for the guidance period. U.S. GAAP net cash provided by operating activities for 2024 is estimated to be between $2.75 billion and $3.05 billion, with a midpoint of approximately $2.9 billion.

  • Brands performed in line with expectations, with overall solid year-over-year performance in key brands including Lipitor®, Yupelri® and Dona®.
  • Generics, which include diversified product forms such as oral solids, injectables, transdermals, topicals, and complex generics, performed ahead of expectations due to solid performance across the broader portfolio in Developed and Emerging Markets.
  • The Company generated approximately $107 million in new product revenues (as defined in "Certain Key Terms and Presentation Matters" below) in the fourth quarter (approximately $450 million for the year) primarily driven by Breyna™ in the U.S.
  • The Company had U.S. GAAP net cash provided by operating activities of $479 million in the fourth quarter ($2.80 billion for the year) and generated free cash flow of $314 million in the fourth quarter ($2.42 billion for the year), in each case primarily driven by strong operating results. U.S. GAAP net cash provided by operating activities and free cash flow included approximately $140 million for the fourth quarter ($219 million for the year) of transaction costs primarily related to the eye care acquisitions and the divestitures.
  • The Company paid down approximately $500 million in debt in the fourth quarter (approximately $1.25 billion for the year). The Company remains fully committed to maintaining its investment grade credit rating.

Certain Key Terms and Presentation Matters

New product sales, new product launches or new product revenues: Refers to revenue from new products launched in 2023 and the carryover impact of new products, including business development, launched within the last 12 months.

Operational change: Refers to constant currency percentage changes and is derived by translating amounts for the current period at prior year comparative period exchange rates, and in doing so shows the percentage change from 2023 constant currency net sales, revenues and adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding amount in the prior year.

Divestiture-adjusted operational change: Refers to operational changes, further adjusted for the impact of the results from the divested Biosimilars business and proportionate results from the divestitures that closed in 2023 from the 2022 period by excluding net sales from those divested businesses from comparable prior periods, and a reclassification to conform prior year-to-date amounts to current year presentation of divestiture-adjusted operational net sales. Also, for adjusted EBITDA refers to operational changes, adjusted as outlined in the previous sentence and further adjusted for the mark up for the TSA services provided to Biocon Biologics.

SG&A and R&D TSA reimbursement: Expenses related to TSA services provided to Biocon Biologics are recorded in their respective functional line item; however, reimbursement of those expenses plus the mark-up is included in other (income) expense, net. For comparability purposes, amounts related to the cost reimbursement are reclassified to adjusted SG&A and adjusted R&D. This reclassification has no impact on adjusted net earnings or adjusted EBITDA.

Closed divestitures or divestitures closed in 2023: Refers to the divestiture of the Company's rights to two women's healthcare products in certain countries (other than the U.K., which remains subject to regulatory approval) that closed in December 2023 and the divestitures of the commercialization rights in certain of the Upjohn Distributor markets that closed in 2023.

Remaining divestitures or pending announced divestitures: Refers to the remaining announced divestitures that have not been consummated to date, including the divestiture of substantially all of our over-the-counter ("OTC") business, women's healthcare business primarily related to oral and injectable contraceptives, active pharmaceutical ingredient ("API") business in India, and the remaining commercialization rights in the Upjohn Distributor Markets.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the presentation and discussion of certain financial information that differs from what is reported under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("U.S. GAAP"). These non-GAAP financial measures, including, but not limited to, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margins, adjusted net earnings, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, free cash flow excluding the impact of transaction costs; adjusted R&D and as a % of total revenues, adjusted SG&A and as a % of total revenues, adjusted earnings from operations, adjusted interest expense, adjusted other (income) expense, net, adjusted effective tax rate, constant currency total revenues, constant currency net sales, constant currency adjusted EBITDA, 2022 adjusted net sales ex divestitures, operational change, divestiture-adjusted operational change and adjusted EPS, are presented in order to supplement investors' and other readers' understanding and assessment of the financial performance of Viatris Inc. ("Viatris" or the "Company"). Free cash flow refers to U.S. GAAP net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. Adjusted EPS will be calculated as adjusted net earnings divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares of common stock outstanding. Management uses these measures internally for forecasting, budgeting, measuring its operating performance, and incentive-based awards. Primarily due to acquisitions and other significant events which may impact comparability of our periodic operating results, Viatris believes that an evaluation of its ongoing operations (and comparisons of its current operations with historical and future operations) would be difficult if the disclosure of its financial results was limited to financial measures prepared only in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures are useful supplemental information for our investors and when considered together with our U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our operations. The financial performance of the Company is measured by senior management, in part, using adjusted metrics included herein, along with other performance metrics. In addition, the Company believes that including EBITDA and supplemental adjustments applied in presenting adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors to demonstrate the Company's ability to comply with financial debt covenants and assess the Company's ability to incur additional indebtedness. The Company also believes that adjusted EBITDA better focuses management on the Company's underlying operational results and true business performance and is used, in part, for management's incentive compensation. We also report sales performance using the non-GAAP financial measures of "constant currency", also referred to herein as "operational change", total revenues, net sales and adjusted EBITDA. These measures provide information on the change in total revenues, net sales and adjusted EBITDA assuming that foreign currency exchange rates had not changed between the prior and current period. The comparisons presented at constant currency rates reflect comparative local currency sales at the prior year's foreign exchange rates. We routinely evaluate our net sales, total revenues and adjusted EBITDA performance at constant currency so that sales results can be viewed without the impact of foreign currency exchange rates, thereby facilitating a period-to-period comparison of our operational activities, and believe that this presentation also provides useful information to investors for the same reason. Divestiture-adjusted operational change refers to operational change, further adjusted for the impact of divestitures that have closed during 2022 and 2023 (including the divestiture of the Biosimilars business in November 2022 and the divestitures closed in 2023) by excluding net sales from those divested businesses from comparable prior periods, and a reclassification to conform prior year amounts to current year presentation of divestiture-adjusted operational net sales. The "Summary of Total Revenues by Segment" table below compares net sales on an actual and constant currency basis for each reportable segment for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 as well as for total revenues, as well as divestiture-adjusted operational change in net sales. Also, set forth below, Viatris has provided reconciliations of such non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures. Investors and other readers are encouraged to review the related U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures set forth below, and investors and other readers should consider non-GAAP measures only as supplements to, not as substitutes for or as superior measures to, the measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For additional information regarding the components and uses of Non-GAAP financial measures, refer to Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations--Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures section of Viatris' Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023.

With respect to the guidance ranges as provided on November 7, 2023, at that time the Company did not provide forward-looking guidance for U.S. GAAP net earnings (loss) or a quantitative reconciliation of its 2023 adjusted EBITDA guidance to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, U.S. GAAP net earnings (loss), because it was unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of certain significant items, including integration, acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, restructuring expenses, asset impairments, litigation settlements and other contingencies, such as changes to contingent consideration, acquired IPR&D and certain other gains or losses, including for the fair value for non-marketable equity investments, as well as related income tax accounting, because certain of these items had not occurred, were out of the Company's control and/or could be reasonably predicted without unreasonable effort. These items were uncertain, depended on various factors, and could have had a material impact on U.S. GAAP reported results for the guidance period. As previously disclosed, such guidance ranges included the full year expected performance for the planned divestitures and excluded any potential related costs, such as taxes and transaction costs, as well as any similar costs related to the eye care acquisitions, and also excluded any acquired IPR&D.

Because forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties, actual future results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to: the possibility that the Company may not realize the intended benefits of, or achieve the intended goals or outlooks with respect to, its strategic initiatives (including divestitures, acquisitions, or other potential transactions) or move up the value chain by focusing on more complex and innovative products to build a more durable higher margin portfolio; the possibility that the Company may be unable to achieve intended or expected benefits, goals, outlooks, synergies, growth opportunities and operating efficiencies in connection with divestitures, acquisitions, other transactions, or restructuring programs, within the expected timeframes or at all; with respect to previously announced divestitures that have not been consummated, including the divestiture of substantially all of our OTC Business, such divestitures not being completed on the expected timelines or at all and the risk that the conditions set forth in the definitive agreements with respect to such divestitures will not be satisfied or waived; with respect to previously announced divestitures, failure to realize the total transaction values for the divestitures and/or the expected proceeds for any or all such divestitures, including as a result of any purchase price adjustment or a failure to achieve any conditions to the payment of any contingent consideration; goodwill or impairment charges or other losses related to the divestiture or sale of businesses or assets (including but not limited to announced divestitures that have not yet been consummated); the Company's failure to achieve expected or targeted future financial and operating performance and results; the potential impact of public health outbreaks, epidemics and pandemics; actions and decisions of healthcare and pharmaceutical regulators; changes in relevant laws, regulations and policies and/or the application or implementation thereof, including but not limited to tax, healthcare and pharmaceutical laws, regulations and policies globally (including the impact of recent and potential tax reform in the U.S. and pharmaceutical product pricing policies in China); the ability to attract, motivate and retain key personnel; the Company's liquidity, capital resources and ability to obtain financing; any regulatory, legal or other impediments to the Company's ability to bring new products to market, including but not limited to "at-risk launches"; success of clinical trials and the Company's or its partners' ability to execute on new product opportunities and develop, manufacture and commercialize products; any changes in or difficulties with the Company's manufacturing facilities, including with respect to inspections, remediation and restructuring activities, supply chain or inventory or the ability to meet anticipated demand; the scope, timing and outcome of any ongoing legal proceedings, including government inquiries or investigations, and the impact of any such proceedings on the Company; any significant breach of data security or data privacy or disruptions to our IT systems; risks associated with having significant operations globally; the ability to protect intellectual property and preserve intellectual property rights; changes in third-party relationships; the effect of any changes in the Company's or its partners' customer and supplier relationships and customer purchasing patterns, including customer loss and business disruption being greater than expected following an acquisition or divestiture; the impacts of competition, including decreases in sales or revenues as a result of the loss of market exclusivity for certain products; changes in the economic and financial conditions of the Company or its partners; uncertainties regarding future demand, pricing and reimbursement for the Company's products; uncertainties and matters beyond the control of management, including but not limited to general political and economic conditions, inflation rates and global exchange rates; and inherent uncertainties involved in the estimates and judgments used in the preparation of financial statements, and the providing of estimates of financial measures, in accordance with U.S. GAAP and related standards or on an adjusted basis.
