Biogen Idec First Quarter 2014 Revenues Reach $2.1 Billion Driven By Continued Strength Of MS Franchise

Biogen Idec Inc. (NASDAQ: BIIB) today reported first quarter 2014 results, including revenue of $2.1 billion, a 51% increase compared to the first quarter of 2013. The revenue growth year-over-year was driven by strong TECFIDERA performance and from recording 100% of TYSABRI ® revenues following our acquisition of complete rights for the asset in the second quarter of 2013. First quarter 2014 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $2.47, an increase of 25% over the first quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP net income attributable to Biogen Idec for the year was $587 million, an increase of 25% over the first quarter of 2013.

On a reported basis, GAAP diluted EPS for the first quarter of 2014 were $2.02, an increase of 13% over the first quarter of 2013. GAAP net income attributable to Biogen Idec for the first quarter of 2014 was $480 million, an increase of 12% versus the same period in the prior year. (A reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP quarterly financial results and 2014 guidance can be found in Table 3 at the end of this release).

Diluted GAAP and non-GAAP EPS were reduced by approximately 35 cents as a result of a $118 million R&D expense related our new Alzheimer’s disease collaboration agreement with Eisai.

“Biogen Idec started 2014 on a strong note with the approval of TECFIDERA for MS patients in Europe and ALPROLIX for hemophilia B patients in the United States and Canada,” said Chief Executive Officer George A. Scangos, Ph.D. “Following an excellent first year of sales in the U.S., TECFIDERA is off to a solid start in Germany, with plans to launch in additional countries in the coming months. Through the remainder of 2014 we anticipate regulatory decisions on new products for hemophilia and MS, and several important early-stage proof-of-concept and clinical study read-outs – and through our collaboration with Eisai we are building one of the broadest research portfolios targeting Alzheimer’s disease.”
