Shire plc: Core Portfolio of Products Delivers 20% Sales Growth


The Medicaid rebate percentage was higher in Q2 2009 than the same period last year due to a higher proportion of gross sales being made through Medicaid and an increased unit rebate amount ("URA"). The rise in URA is a direct result of price increases and the inclusion of shipments of authorized generic ADDERALL XR to Teva in the URA calculation.


Product sales of DAYTRANA for the three months to June 30, 2009 decreased by 34% to $14.9 million (2008: $22.6 million). Product sales declined due to a 14% reduction in US prescription demand, following a decline in DAYTRANA's average share of the US ADHD market to 1.4% (2008: 1.8%) together with the impact of de-stocking in Q2 2009. These declines were partially offset by price increases taken since Q2 2008.


Following the acquisition of EQUASYM from UCB on March 31, 2009 the Company has recorded product sales of EQUASYM for the three months to June 30, 2009 of $4.9 million (2008: $nil).

US oral mesalamine market share

Shire's average market share of the US oral mesalamine market rose to 31.8% for the three months to June 30, 2009 (2008: 27.6%).

LIALDA/MEZAVANT - Ulcerative colitis

Product sales of LIALDA/MEZAVANT for the three months to June 30, 2009 increased by 71% to $54.6 million (2008: $32.0 million). US prescriptions increased by 53%, due to an increase in LIALDA's average share of the US oral mesalamine market to 15.9% (2008: 10.8%) and underlying growth in the US oral mesalamine market of 4%.

By June 30, 2009 MEZAVANT was available in eight countries outside the US, and further launches are planned in other countries throughout 2009 and 2010, subject to the successful conclusion of pricing and reimbursement negotiations.
