Genzyme Reports Financial Results For Fourth Quarter Of 2010 And Full Year
Genzyme Corp. (NASDAQ: GENZ) today reported fourth-quarter 2010 results that reflect increasing supplies of Cerezyme ® (imiglucerase for injection) and Fabrazyme ® (agalsidase beta), revenue growth across all major product lines, and reductions in operating expenses. Earlier today Genzyme and sanofi-aventis announced that they have reached a definitive agreement under which sanofi-aventis will acquire Genzyme for $74 per share plus a contingent value right. This news is covered in a separate press release.
Fourth-quarter GAAP net income was $471.9 million, or $1.76 per diluted share, compared with $23.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the same period in 2009. Non-GAAP net income was $221.1 million, or $0.82 per diluted share, compared with $78.1 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP 2010 income excludes items associated with business divestitures, Bayer oncology product acquisition expenses, and stock compensation expenses.
Full-year 2010 GAAP net income was $422.1 million, or $1.57 per diluted share, compared with $422.3 million, or $1.54 per diluted share, in 2009. Non-GAAP net income was $478.5 million, or $1.78 per diluted share, compared with $611.5 million, or $2.23 per diluted share, in 2009. Genzyme exited 2010 with $1.9 billion in cash and equivalents.
Fourth-quarter GAAP revenue grew 23 percent to $1.15 billion from $938.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2009; non-GAAP revenue was $1.13 billion. For the year, GAAP revenue was $4.05 billion compared with $3.98 billion in 2009; non-GAAP revenue was $4.03 billion. Non-GAAP revenue figures exclude the pharmaceuticals and cell therapy businesses, which Genzyme intends to divest.“Strong growth in the fourth quarter demonstrates that our recovery is fully underway,” said Henri A. Termeer, Genzyme’s chairman and CEO. “By executing on the opportunities provided by our core businesses and reducing our operating expenses, we were able to nearly double our earnings from the third quarter to the fourth.”
