______________________________________________(1) “Adjusted income” and “adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS)” are defined as reported U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) net income attributable to Pfizer Inc. and reported diluted EPS attributable to Pfizer Inc. common shareholders excluding purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related costs, discontinued operations and certain significant items. As described under Adjusted Income in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of Pfizer’s Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012, management uses Adjusted income, among other factors, to set performance goals and to measure the performance of the overall company. We believe that investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by disclosing this measure. The Adjusted income and Adjusted diluted EPS measures are not, and should not be viewed as substitutes for U.S. GAAP net income and diluted EPS.

We assume no obligation to update forward-looking statements contained in this earnings release and the attachments as a result of new information or future events or developments.
