Elan Reports Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2012 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: ELN

Until the Tysabri Transaction closes, in the ROW market, Biogen Idec is responsible for distribution, and Elan records as revenue its share of the profit or loss on ROW sales of Tysabri, plus Elan’s directly-incurred expenses on these sales. As a result, in the ROW market, Elan recorded net revenue of $76.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $74.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Elan’s net Tysabri ROW revenue is calculated as follows:

26.2 32.1 Tysabri SG&A expenses 96.1 113.2
57.1 58.9 Pro forma SG&A expenses 203.3 226.8

SG&A expenses increased slightly to $58.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, from $57.1 million for the same period of 2011, primarily as a result of increased investment in Tysabri commercial activities in the US, offset by reduced non-Tysabri cash expenses.
