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

(R) (Epoetin alfa) increased 2 percent to $565 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $554 million in the first quarter of 2008, primarily due to an increase in demand. The increase in demand is principally due to patient population growth and an increase in price, partially offset by changes in customer purchasing patterns.

Combined worldwide sales of Neulasta(R) (pegfilgrastim) and NEUPOGEN(R) (Filgrastim) decreased 1 percent to $1,073 million in the first quarter of 2009 versus $1,086 million for the first quarter of 2008.

This decline is due to the negative impact of changes in foreign exchange, which aggregated approximately $29 million, partially offset by an increase in demand driven by the continued conversion from NEUPOGEN to Neulasta. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, combined worldwide product sales of NEUPOGEN and Neulasta increased 1 percent and international product sales increased 4 percent.

Sales of Enbrel(R) (etanercept) decreased 20 percent in the first quarter to $758 million versus $951 million during the same period in 2008, driven primarily by unfavorable changes in wholesaler inventory and to a lesser extent a decline in demand. Sales of ENBREL benefited from approximately $120 million of wholesaler inventory loading due to a shift to wholesaler distribution in the first quarter of 2008. Excluding this positive impact to the fir
