Mr. Yanai continued, "Teva's strategy is focused on growth and on reducing dependence on any one particular market or product, and during 2011 we made important progress in reaching our strategic goals with the acquisitions of Cephalon and Taiyo, and the creation of a unique joint venture with Procter & Gamble.

Revenues by Geographies for Fourth Quarter 2011

Net revenues in the United States in the fourth quarter were $3.0 billion (representing 54% of total revenues), an increase of 32% compared to the fourth quarter of 2010, primarily as a result of the inclusion of Cephalon and strong revenues of our brand products, offset by slightly lower revenues from sales of generic products.

Net revenues in Europe in the fourth quarter were $1.5 billion (representing 26% of total revenues), an increase of 13% compared to the fourth quarter of 2010, or 15% in local currency terms. The growth in revenues resulted from stronger generic and brand product revenues, primarily in Italy and Spain. We continued to strengthen our unique position as the generics leader in Europe.

Net revenues in the Rest of the World (ROW, which includes Canada, Israel, certain markets in Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia) in the fourth quarter totaled $1.1 billion (representing 20% of total revenues), up 44% compared to the fourth quarter of 2010. In local currency terms, ROW revenues grew by 45%. The growth in revenues resulted primarily from higher revenues in Russia, Israel, and major markets in Latin America, and from the inclusion of Taiyo in Japan, acquired in July 2011, and of Teva-Kowa.

Revenues by Business Lines for Fourth Quarter 2011

Generic products net revenues in the fourth quarter were $3.0 billion (including API of $197 million), an increase of 12% compared to $2.7 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010. Generic revenues consist of U.S. revenues of $1.2 billion, a decrease of 5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2010, European revenues of $1.0 billion, an increase of 3%, and ROW revenues of $758 million, an increase of 81%. The U.S. generics business in the quarter benefited from the launch of generic Zyprexa® and our agreement with Ranbaxy relating to its launch of generic Lipitor®. The European generics business grew both organically and as a result of the inclusion for a full year of revenues from ratiopharm. The ROW generics business had a very strong quarter, primarily as a result of continued growth in Russia, Israel, certain markets in Latin America, and our acquisitions in Japan. The ability to continue and grow our global generics business demonstrates our balanced business model.

Branded products net revenues in the fourth quarter were $2.3 billion, an increase of 68% compared to $1.3 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010. Branded revenues consist of U.S. revenues of $1.8 billion, an increase of 76% compared to the fourth quarter of 2010, European revenues of $329 million, an increase of 65%, and ROW revenues of $155 million, an increase of 9%. Branded revenues comprised 40% of total revenues in the quarter, compared to 30% in the fourth quarter of 2010.

The increase in branded revenues was primarily due to the inclusion of Cephalon sales (mainly Provigil® with $350 million in revenues, Treanda® with $131 million and Nuvigil® with $86 million).

In addition, revenues were strong across almost all of Teva's branded products, including respiratory product revenues of $275 million, up 27% compared to the fourth quarter of 2010; Copaxone®, for which revenues recorded by Teva increased 11% to $927 million, while global in-market revenues increased 8% to $1.0 billion; and Azilect®, for which revenues recorded by Teva increased 26% to $83 million, while global in-market revenues increased 22% to a record $109 million.

OTC net revenues in the quarter were $217 million, an increase of 19% compared to $182 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Other net revenues, mostly distribution of third party products in Israel and Hungary, in the quarter were $223 million, compared to the $220 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Revenues by Geographies for Full Year 2011

Net revenues in the United States were $8.8 billion (representing 48% of total revenues), a decrease of 6% compared to 2010, primarily as a result of fewer significant new generic launches and decreases in revenues of key generic products compared to 2010, which was partially offset by higher revenues of branded products.

Net revenues in Europe were $5.7 billion (representing 31% of total revenues), an increase of 43% compared with 2010, or 37% in local currency terms. The growth in revenues resulted primarily from the inclusion for a full year of revenues from ratiopharm, the inclusion of Cephalon and Theramex, stronger revenues of our branded products, as well as organic growth of the business.

Net revenues in ROW totaled $3.9 billion (representing 21% of total revenues), an increase of 39% compared to 2010, or 34% in local currency terms. The growth in revenues resulted primarily from higher revenues in Russia, Israel and major markets in Latin America, and from the inclusion of Taiyo in Japan, which was acquired in July 2011, and of Teva-Kowa.

Revenues by Business Lines for Full Year 2011

Generic product net revenues were $10.2 billion, an increase of 3% compared to $9.9 billion for 2010. The rapid growth in our generic revenues in the European and ROW markets compensated for a decrease in U.S. generics revenues. Generic revenues consist of U.S. revenues of $4.0 billion, a decrease of 32% compared to 2010, European revenues of $3.8 billion, an increase of 44%, and ROW revenues of $2.4 billion, an increase of 64%. The decrease in U.S. generic revenues was due primarily to fewer significant new launches and decreases in revenues from key products compared to 2010 (most notably the generic equivalent of Effexor XR®, as well as generic equivalents of Cozaar® and Hyzaar®), and was affected by quality and supply issues, primarily from our Irvine and Jerusalem plants, particularly in the first three quarters. However, the fourth quarter of 2011 demonstrates a change in this trend in the U.S. generic business.

Branded products net revenues were $6.5 billion, an increase of 34% compared to the $4.9 billion for 2010. Branded revenues consist of U.S. revenues of $4.8 billion, an increase of 33%, European revenues of $1.1 billion, an increase of 48%, and ROW revenues of $588 million, an increase of 16%. The increase in branded revenues was primarily due to the inclusion of Cephalon products as well as increases in revenues across almost all of Teva's branded products, particularly Copaxone®, which increased 21% to $3.6 billion. The new diversity of our branded business has decreased our dependency on any single product.

OTC net revenues were $765 million, an increase of 54% compared to $496 million for 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to the inclusion for a full year of revenues from ratiopharm and our increased focus on this business on the background of the creation of our joint venture PGT Healthcare.

Other net revenues, mostly distribution of third party products in Israel and Hungary, were $858 million compared to $863 million for 2010.

Key Metrics for the Fourth Quarter 2011

Exchange rate differences between this quarter and the fourth quarter of 2010 reduced our revenues by approximately $29 million, while having a minor impact on operating income. The impact on revenues resulted primarily from the weakening of certain currencies (primarily the HUF and Euro) relative to the U.S. dollar.

Non-GAAP Information. Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP EPS for the quarter are adjusted to exclude the following items, the majority of which relate to Teva's acquisition of Cephalon, which closed in October 2011:

  • Acquisitions and restructuring of $123 million;
  • Inventory step-up of $308 million;
  • Impairment of intangible assets of $171 million;
  • Amortization of purchased intangible assets totaling $225 million;
  • Legal settlements of $255 million;
  • Costs related to regulatory actions taken in facilities of $40 million; and
  • Related tax benefits of $221 million.

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

For the fourth quarter, GAAP net income and GAAP EPS were $506 million and $0.57, compared with $771 million and $0.85 in the fourth quarter of 2010, primarily reflecting the significant impact of certain one-off charges resulting from the Cephalon acquisition.

For the full year 2011, GAAP net income was $2.8 billion, compared to $3.3 billion in 2010, primarily reflecting the significant impact of certain one-off charges resulting from the Cephalon acquisition. GAAP earnings per share totaled $3.09, compared to $3.67 in 2010.

Quarterly Non-GAAP operating income of $1.7 billion, up 34% compared to the fourth quarter of 2010. Quarterly GAAP operating income totaled $610 million, compared to $774 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Non-GAAP gross profit margin was 60.7% in the quarter, compared to 59.6% in the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase reflects a change in product mix - an increase in the contribution from branded products, primarily due to the integration of Cephalon, partially offset by a decrease in the contribution from certain high margin generic products in the U.S., primarily generic Effexor XR®. GAAP gross profit margin was 50.8% in quarter, compared to 55.8% in the fourth quarter of 2010. The decrease primarily reflects a one-time inventory step-up and amortization of purchased intangible assets related to the Cephalon acquisition and costs related to regulatory actions taken in facilities recorded in the current quarter.

Net Research & Development (R&D) expenditures (excluding purchase of in-process R&D) in the quarter totaled $371 million, or 6.5% of revenues, compared to $270 million, or 6.1% of revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase in R&D spending primarily reflects the inclusion of Cephalon. Gross R&D in the fourth quarter of 2011, before reimbursement from third parties for certain R&D expenses, totaled approximately $414 million, or 7.3% of revenues.

Selling and Marketing expenditures (excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets) totaled $1.0 billion, or 18.1% of revenues, in the quarter, compared to $816 million, or 18.5% of revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase was primarily due to the inclusion of Cephalon, Taiyo and Theramex as well as higher expenses on our expanded branded products portfolio.

General and Administrative (G&A) expenditures totaled $315 million in the quarter, or 5.5% of revenues, compared with $258 million, or 5.8% of revenues, for the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase was primarily due to the inclusion of Cephalon.

Non-GAAP net financial expense in the fourth quarter of 2011 totaled $68 million, compared with $54 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase resulted mainly from interest expenses related to the Cephalon and Taiyo acquisitions.

The Non-GAAP tax provision in the quarter was $239 million on pre-tax Non-GAAP income of $1.7 billion. Teva's annual tax rate on pre-tax Non-GAAP income for 2011 is 12%, compared to 13% of pre-tax Non-GAAP income for 2010. The 2011 Non-GAAP tax rate is based on a mix of products manufactured in jurisdictions where Teva benefits from tax incentives. The product mix in future years is expected to be different, and may result in a higher tax rate. On a GAAP basis, the annual tax rate for 2011 is 4%.

Cash flow from operations during the quarter was $1.4 billion, compared to $1.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010, an increase of 30%. Free cash flow - excluding net capital expenditures of $280 million and dividends of $190 million - was $958 million, an increase of 33% compared to the fourth quarter of 2010. Cash and marketable securities on December 31, 2011 amounted to $1.7 billion.

During the quarter, share repurchases totaled approximately 3.7 million shares for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $150 million. Since the beginning of December 2010, when a $1 billion share repurchase plan was authorized, Teva has repurchased 21.6 million shares for approximately $1 billion. As a result of these share repurchases and the redemption or conversion of convertible debentures in the first quarter of 2011, the fully diluted share count has been reduced by approximately 29 million shares from December 31, 2010 to December 31, 2011. In December 2011, the Board of Directors authorized an additional share repurchase program of $3 billion, to be implemented over a three-year period.

Total equity at December 31, 2011 was $22.3 billion, an increase of $0.3 billion, compared to $22.0 billion at December 31, 2010. The increase in total equity is primarily a result of the GAAP net income of $2.8 billion, offset by share repurchases, currency translation adjustments and dividends paid.

For the fourth quarter of 2011, the weighted average share count for the fully diluted earnings per share calculation was 886 million on both a GAAP and Non-GAAP basis. At December 31, 2011, the share count for calculating Teva's market capitalization was approximately 883 million.

Dividend

The Board of Directors, at its meeting on February 14, 2012, declared a cash dividend for the fourth quarter of 2011 of NIS 1.00 (approximately 26.8 cents according to the rate of exchange on February 14, 2011) per share.

The record date will be February 27, 2012, and the payment date will be March 12, 2012. Tax will be withheld at a rate of 25%.
