Pfizer Reports Second-Quarter 2011 Results

PfizerPfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) today reported financial results for second-quarter 2011. Second-quarter 2011 revenues were $17.0 billion, a decrease of 1% compared with the year-ago quarter. Revenues for second-quarter 2011 compared with the year-ago quarter were favorably impacted by $740 million, or 4%, due to foreign exchange, and $357 million, or 2%, due to the addition of legacy King products. Second-quarter 2011 revenues were reduced by $1.5 billion, or 9%, due to the impact of the loss of exclusivity for several products in certain geographies, and $158 million, or 1%, due to U.S. healthcare reform.

For second-quarter 2011, U.S. revenues were $6.7 billion, a decrease of 9% compared with the year-ago quarter. International revenues were $10.3 billion, an increase of 5% compared with the prior-year quarter, which reflected a 3% operational decline and an 8% favorable impact of foreign exchange. U.S. revenues represented 39% of total revenues in second-quarter 2011 compared with 43% in the year-ago quarter, while international revenues represented 61% of total revenues in second-quarter 2011 compared with 57% in the year-ago quarter.

Ian Read, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our performance this quarter was in-line with our expectations. Although results were impacted by losses of exclusivity of several key products in certain geographies, most notably in our Established Products business, I am pleased that many of our core products, primarily Lyrica, Enbrel and the Prevnar/Prevenar franchise, continued to perform well overall and the fundamentals of our business remain strong. We will continue to invest in areas that will enhance our presence, expand the breadth of our portfolio and position our businesses to better capitalize on high-growth opportunities."
