Pfizer Reports Fourth-Quarter And Full-Year 2012 Results; Provides 2013 Financial Guidance

(b) Does not assume the completion of any business development transactions not completed as of December 31, 2012, including any one-time upfront payments associated with such transactions, and excludes the potential effects of the resolution of litigation-related matters not substantially resolved as of December 31, 2012.

(c) The 2013 financial guidance reflects the benefit of a full-year contribution from Zoetis. Adjusted (1) and Reported Diluted EPS guidance includes a $0.02 unfavorable impact for Zoetis-related interest expense and certain duplicative and other costs given its potential separation. Reported Diluted EPS guidance includes an additional $0.02 unfavorable impact for costs related to the establishment of Zoetis’ corporate and manufacturing support functions, and certain other costs related to the potential separation of Zoetis from Pfizer, including new branding, creation of a standalone infrastructure, site separation and certain legal registration and patent assignment costs.

(d) Includes amounts related to our initiatives to reduce R&D spending, including our realigned R&D footprint, and amounts related to other cost-reduction and productivity initiatives. These amounts are included in Certain Significant Items.


(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.

DISCLOSURE NOTICE: The information contained in this earnings release and the attachments is as of January 29, 2013. 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.
