Amgen's First Quarter 2009 Adjusted Earnings Per Share Decreased 4 Percent to $1.08
Date:4/23/2009

ent to $736 million versus $749 million for the first quarter of 2008. The decline in first quarter 2009 sales reflects the negative impact of changes in foreign exchange, which aggregated approximately $69 million. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, total product sales decreased 7 percent and international product sales increased 7 percent.

Worldwide sales of Aranesp(R) (darbepoetin alfa) decreased 18 percent to $626 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $761 million during the first quarter of 2008. In the U.S., Aranesp sales decreased 28 percent to $292 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $405 million in the first quarter of 2008. U.S. sales in the first quarter of 2009 were negatively impacted by $12 million from changes in accounting estimates related to accruals for sales incentives for sales in prior periods. In addition, sales in the first quarter of 2008 were positively impacted by $22 million due to a change in the accounting estimate related to product sales return reserves. Excluding the impact of these changes in accounting estimates, U.S. sales of Aranesp declined 21 percent in the first quarter of 2009. The decrease was principally driven by a decline in demand reflecting the negative impact, primarily in the supportive cancer care setting, of additional product label changes which occurred in the third quarter of 2008, and, to a lesser extent, loss of segment share. The decline in sales in the first quarter of 2009 was slightly offset by favorable changes in wholesaler inventories. International Aranesp sales decreased 6 percent to $334 million versus $356 million in the first quarter of 2008 due to the negative impact of changes in foreign exchange, which aggregated approximately $29 million, partially offset by an increase in demand. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, worldwide product sales decreased 14 percent and international product sales increased 2 percent.
