Allergan reports rise in quarterly revenues

May 10
16:09 2016

downloadAllergan, today reported a 48% rise in quarterly profit, led by strong sales of Botox and Restasis.

The Irish based company whose $160 billion merger with Pfizer fell apart last month,reported a better than expected quarterly profit.

Allergan was known as Actavis until it bought Botox-maker Allergan last year and took on its name.

It also said today that its board had authorised a new share buyback programme of up to $10 billion.

The buyback follows Allergan’s agreement to sell its generic drug business to Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd for $40.5 billion. That deal is expected to close in June. The company’s shares were up slightly in premarket trading.

Allergan’s chief executive Brent Saunders said the close of the Teva deal would also allow Allergan to pay down debt, helping it maintain its investment rating, while preserving “significant firepower” to invest for growth.

Up to Monday’s close of $213.71, Allergan’s shares had fallen about 23 per cent since Pfizer scrapped the merger, which would have been the biggest-ever in the pharmaceutical sector. The deal collapsed after the US Treasury issued new rules curbing tax inversions, under which American companies move their domicile overseas to cut taxes.

Allegan said revenue in its US brands business, which includes Botox and Restasis, rose 27.3 per cent to $2.30 billion in the first quarter ended March 31. The unit accounts for about 60 per cent of the company’s total revenue.

Allergan reported net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of $186.1 million, or 47 cents per share, compared with a loss of $535.2 million, or $1.85 per share, a year earlier. Excluding items, the company earned $3.04 per share, slightly above the average analysts’ estimate of $3.01, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Total revenue rose 48 per cent to about $3.80 billion, short of the average estimate of $3.95 billion.
