THIRD QUARTER FINANCIAL RESULTS

All comparisons are made versus the same period in 2021 unless otherwise stated.

  • Bristol Myers Squibb posted third quarter revenues of $11.2 billion, a decrease of 3%, driven by recent LOE products (primarily Revlimid) and foreign exchange impacts, partially offset by in-line products (primarily Eliquis and Opdivo) and our new product portfolio (primarily Opdualag, Abecma and Reblozyl). When adjusted for foreign exchange impacts, third quarter revenues remained consistent. Our in-line and new product portfolio increased 8% to $8.6 billion, or 13% when adjusted for foreign exchange impacts.
  • U.S. revenues increased 9% to $7.9 billion in the quarter. International revenues decreased 24% to $3.3 billion in the quarter. When adjusted for foreign exchange impacts, international revenues decreased 14%, primarily due to lower demand of Revlimid as a result of generic erosion, partially offset by in-line products (primarily Opdivo) and our new product portfolio.
  • Gross margin decreased from 80.3% to 79.0% and on a non-GAAP basis, decreased from 81.1% to 79.8% in the quarter primarily due to product mix, partially offset by foreign exchange impacts and related hedging settlements.
  • Marketing, selling and administrative expenses increased 8% to $1.9 billion in the quarter, primarily due to higher costs to support new product launches and cash settlement of Turning Point Therapeutics, Inc. (“Turning Point”) unvested stock awards, partially offset by foreign exchange impacts. On a non-GAAP basis, marketing, selling and administrative expenses increased 4% to $1.9 billion primarily due to higher investments to support new product launches, partially offset by foreign exchange impacts.
  • Research and development expenses decreased 19% to $2.4 billion in the quarter, primarily due to an in-process research and development (IPRD) impairment charge in 2021, timing of clinical development spend and foreign exchange impacts, partially offset by cash settlement of Turning Point unvested stock awards. On a non-GAAP basis, research and development expenses decreased 5% to $2.3 billion in the quarter primarily due to timing of clinical development spend and foreign exchange impacts.
  • Acquired IPRD decreased from $271 million in the same period a year ago to $30 million in the current quarter. Acquired IPRD in the current quarter is related to the GentiBio licensing transaction. Acquired IPRD in the same period a year ago was primarily related to the Agenus licensing transaction ($200 million).
  • Amortization of acquired intangible assets decreased 5% to $2.4 billion in the quarter, primarily due to a change in the expected expiration of the market exclusivity period for Pomalyst to the first quarter of 2026.
  • The GAAP effective tax rate changed from 28.0% to 27.2% in the quarter and non-GAAP effective tax rate changed from 14.6% to 16.9% in the quarter due to changes in previously estimated annual effective tax rates due to jurisdictional earnings mix.
  • The company reported net earnings attributable to Bristol Myers Squibb of $1.6 billion, or $0.75 per share, in the third quarter, compared to $1.5 billion, or $0.69 per share, for the same period a year ago. In addition to the items discussed above, the results include the impact of fair value adjustments on equity investments in both periods.
  • The company reported non-GAAP net earnings attributable to Bristol Myers Squibb of $4.3 billion, or $1.99 per share, in the third quarter, compared to non-GAAP net earnings of $4.3 billion, or $1.93 per share, for the same period a year ago.
  • In addition to the items discussed above, the earnings per share results in the current period include the impact of lower weighted-average common shares outstanding.

Beginning with the first quarter of 2022, significant R&D charges or other income resulting from upfront or contingent milestone payments in connection with asset acquisitions or licensing of third-party intellectual property rights are no longer excluded from non-GAAP results. These R&D charges that were previously specified are now presented in a new financial statement line item labeled Acquired IPRD. GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share include the net impact of Acquired IPRD charges and licensing income which increased by $0.02 per share in the third quarter of 2022 compared to a reduction of ($0.09) per share in the third quarter of 2021. For purposes of comparability, the non-GAAP financial results for the third quarter of 2021 have been updated to reflect this change. A discussion of the non-GAAP financial measures is included under the “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information” section.

REVENUE HIGHLIGHTS

In-Line Products

Revenues for in-line products in the third quarter were $8.1 billion compared to $7.7 billion in the prior year period, representing an increase of 5% or 10% when adjusted for foreign exchange. In-line products revenue was largely driven by:

  • Eliquis revenues grew 10% compared to the prior year period. U.S. revenues were $1.7 billion compared to $1.3 billion in the prior year period, representing an increase of 31% driven primarily by demand growth and favorable gross to net adjustments. International revenues were $926 million compared to $1.1 billion in the prior year period, representing a decrease of 16% driven by foreign exchange impacts and lower average net selling prices. When adjusted for foreign exchange impacts, Eliquis’ international revenues declined 2%.
  • Opdivo revenues increased 7% compared to the prior year period. U.S. revenues were $1.2 billion compared to $1.1 billion in the prior year period, representing an increase of 17% driven by higher demand across multiple indications, including Opdivo plus Yervoy-based combinations for non-small cell lung cancer, Opdivo plus Cabometyx® combination for kidney cancer, and Opdivo-based therapies for various gastric, bladder and esophageal cancers, partially offset by declining second-line eligibility across tumors and increased competition. International revenues were $804 million compared to $843 million in the prior year period, representing a decrease of 5% driven by foreign exchange impacts, partially offset by higher demand as a result of launches for additional indications and core indications. When adjusted for foreign exchange impacts, Opdivo’s international revenues increased 8%.

New Product Portfolio

  • New product portfolio revenues grew to $553 million compared to $344 million in the prior year period, representing growth of 61% driven by the launch of Opdualag and higher demand for Abecma and Reblozyl. Excluding foreign exchange, new product portfolio revenues grew 66%.

Recent LOE Products

  • Revlimid revenues declined by 28% compared to the prior year period. U.S. revenues decreased 6% to $2.2 billion as compared to the prior year period primarily driven by lower demand as a result of generic erosion. International revenues were $250 million compared to $1.0 billion in the prior year period, representing a decrease of 76% driven by lower demand as a result of generic erosion and to a lesser extent, foreign exchange impacts.

Regulatory

Camzyos®

(mavacamten)

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted our supplemental new drug application for Camzyos for an expanded indication for the treatment of adults with symptomatic New York Heart Association class II-III obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy to improve functional capacity, improve symptoms and reduce the need for septal reduction therapy. The FDA assigned a Prescription Drug User Fee Act goal date of June 16, 2023.

Clinical & Research

Milvexian

Phase 2 AXIOMATIC-SSP trial showed that milvexian had an approximate 30% relative risk reduction in recurrent symptomatic ischemic strokes (accepted regulatory endpoint) and favorable safety profile in three arms compared to placebo when used in combination with background dual antiplatelet therapy in patients with an acute non-cardioembolic ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack. The primary objective of this trial was to detect a dose response for the composite endpoint of symptomatic ischemic stroke + MRI detected covert brain infarction across a 16-fold dose range; a dose response was not observed for the composite endpoint. The trial was conducted by The Bristol Myers Squibb-Janssen Collaboration.

Regulatory

OpdualagTM

(nivolumab and relatlimab-rmbw)

The European Commission (EC) approved the fixed-dose combination of Opdualag for the first-line treatment of advanced (unresectable or metastatic) melanoma in adults and adolescents 12 years of age and older with tumor cell PD-L1 expression < 1%. The EC’s decision is based upon an exploratory analysis of results from the Phase 2/3 RELATIVITY-047 trial.

Clinical & Research

Opdivo®

(nivolumab)

Phase 3 CheckMate -76K trial evaluating Opdivo as a single agent in the adjuvant setting in patients with completely resected stage IIB/C melanoma met its primary endpoint and demonstrated a statistically significant and clinically meaningful benefit in recurrence-free survival versus placebo at a pre-specified interim analysis.

Part A of the Phase 3 CheckMate –914 trial, evaluating Opdivo plus Yervoy as an adjuvant treatment for patients with localized renal cell carcinoma who have undergone full or partial removal of the kidney and who are at moderate or high risk of relapse, did not meet the primary endpoint of disease-free survival as assessed by Blinded Independent Central Review. The safety profile was consistent with previously reported studies of the Opdivo plus Yervoy combination in solid tumors.

Clinical & Research

Abecma®

(idecabtagene vicleucel)

Positive topline results from the Phase 3 KarMMa-3 trial showed treatment with Abecma compared to standard combination regimens in adults with relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma after two to four prior lines of therapy and refractory to the last regimen met its primary endpoint of demonstrating a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival. Treatment with Abecma also showed an improvement in the key secondary endpoint of overall response rate compared to standard regimens. The trial was conducted with 2seventy bio (NASDAQ: TSVT).

SotyktuTM

(deucravacitinib)

The FDA approved Sotyktu, a first-in-class, oral, selective, allosteric tyrosine kinase 2 (TYK2) inhibitor, for the treatment of adults with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy.

In addition, Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare approved Sotyktu for the treatment of patients with plaque psoriasis, generalized pustular psoriasis, or erythrodermic psoriasis, who have had an inadequate response to conventional therapies. The approvals are based on results from the pivotal Phase 3 POETYK PSO-1 and POETYK PSO-2 clinical trials.

Clinical & Research

Sotyktu

Two-year results from the POETYK PSO long-term extension trial demonstrated that clinical efficacy was maintained with continuous Sotyktu treatment in adult patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis.

 

Zeposia®

(ozanimod)

New post hoc analyses from the Phase 3 True North trial evaluating duration of response following continuous Zeposia treatment for up to one year and following treatment interruption in patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis showed that Zeposia prevents disease relapse over one year of continuous treatment and maintains disease control even in the event of temporary interruption.

Business Development

  • In August, the company announced that it had completed its acquisition of Turning Point in an all-cash transaction. Through the transaction, the company gained repotrectinib, a next-generation, potential best-in-class tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting the ROS1 and NTRK oncogenic drivers of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and other advanced solid tumors.
