2008 GUIDANCE

Bristol-Myers Squibb revises its 2008 earnings guidance for fully diluted earnings per share from continuing operations on a GAAP basis to be between $1.36 and $1.46 from $1.44 to $1.54, primarily reflecting the impact from the sale of the Medical Imaging business. The revised GAAP guidance includes estimated charges of approximately $500 million related to implementation of the Productivity Transformation Initiative, which will be dependent on timing of implementation and accounting treatment.

The company also revises its 2008 fully diluted earnings per share from continuing operations guidance on a non-GAAP basis to be between $1.60 and $1.70 from $1.65 to $1.75, primarily reflecting the impact of the Medical Imaging divestiture. The non-GAAP guidance excludes specified items as discussed under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information." Details reconciling adjusted non-GAAP amounts with the amounts reflecting specified items are provided in supplemental materials available on the company's website.

Further, the 2008 guidance excludes other specified items such as gains or losses from sale of businesses and product lines; from sale of equity investments and from discontinuations of operations; restructuring items that meet the requirements of SFAS 112 for severance and SFAS 146 for other exit costs; accelerated depreciation charges under SFAS 144 related to restructuring items described above; asset impairments; charges and recoveries relating to significant legal proceedings; upfront and milestone payments for in-licensing of products that have not achieved regulatory approval that are immediately expensed; copromotion or alliance charges and payments for in- process research and development which under GAAP are immediately expensed rather than amortized over the life of the agreement; income from upfront and milestone payments that is immediately recognized for out-licensing of products, including deferred income recognized upon termination; and significant tax events.

The company reaffirms guidance that it expects non-GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations to grow at a minimum of 15 percent compounded annual growth rate, from the 2007 base, for the next three years, excluding costs associated with the Productivity Transformation Initiative and other specified items that have not yet been identified and quantified. The guidance assumes certain other assumptions including mid to high single digit sales growth, continued improvement in its pharmaceutical margins driven by rationalization of its manufacturing network, flat marketing, selling and administrative expense over the time period with productivity initiatives offsetting investments in new product launches, mid single digit growth in research and development spending, and an increase in the effective tax rate from 2008 levels.

The financial guidance for 2008 and the three-year compound annual growth rate further assume that the company and its product partner, sanofi-aventis, maintain exclusivity for the PLAVIX(R) patent through at least 2010.

As previously disclosed, the composition of matter patent for PLAVIX(R), which expires in 2011, is subject to litigation in the U.S. with Apotex Inc. and Apotex Corp. (Apotex). Apotex's appeal of the U.S. District Court decision upholding the validity and enforceability of the main patent protection for PLAVIX(R) is still pending before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Activities relating to the damages phase of the litigation in the U.S. District Court continue to proceed.

Even though the company and its alliance partner, sanofi-aventis, prevailed in the U.S. District Court, if Apotex were to prevail on appeal, the company could expect to face renewed generic competition for PLAVIX(R) promptly thereafter. There are other pending PLAVIX(R) patent litigations in the United States and in other less significant markets for the product. The company continues to believe that the PLAVIX(R) patents are valid and infringed, and with its alliance partner, sanofi-aventis, is vigorously pursuing these cases.

It is not possible at this time reasonably to assess the ultimate outcome of the appeal by Apotex of the patent litigation or of the other PLAVIX(R) patent litigations, or the timing of any renewed generic competition for PLAVIX(R) from Apotex or additional generic competition for PLAVIX(R) from other generic pharmaceutical companies. Loss of market exclusivity of PLAVIX(R) and/or the development of sustained generic competition would be material to the company's sales of PLAVIX(R), results of operations and cash flows, and could be material to the company's financial condition and liquidity. PLAVIX(R) is the company's largest product by net sales, and U.S. net sales for PLAVIX(R) were $4.1 billion and $2.7 billion in 2007 and 2006, respectively.

Among the items in GAAP earnings but excluded for purposes of determining adjusted earnings are: charges related to implementation of the Productivity Transformation Initiative; gains or losses from sale of businesses and product lines; from sale or write-down of equity investments and from discontinuations of operations; restructuring items that meet the requirements of SFAS 112 for severance and SFAS 146 for other exit costs; accelerated depreciation charges under SFAS 144 related to restructuring items described above; asset impairments; charges and recoveries relating to significant legal proceedings; upfront and milestone payments for in-licensing of products that have not achieved regulatory approval that are immediately expensed; co promotion or alliance charges and payments for in- process research and development which under GAAP are immediately expensed rather than amortized over the life of the agreement; income from upfront and milestone payments that is immediately recognized for out-licensing of products, including deferred income recognized upon termination; costs of early debt retirement; impairments to marketable securities; and significant tax events.

ased 12%, including a 3% favorable foreign exchange impact, to $19.3 billion compared to the same period in 2006. Net earnings from continuing operations in the twelve months of 2007 on a GAAP basis were $2.0 billion, or $0.99 per diluted share, compared to $1.4 billion, or $0.73 per diluted share for the same period last year. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding specified items, Bristol-Myers Squibb reported net earnings from continuing operations of $2.7 billion, or $1.38 per diluted share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2007, compared to $2.0 billion, or $1.01 per diluted share for the same period last year. Included in discontinued operations were Medical Imaging full year 2007 and 2006 net sales of $629 million and $658 million, respectively, and basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.10 and $0.08 in 2007 and 2006, respectively.

NEW PRODUCT AND PIPELINE DEVELOPMENTS

In December, the European Commission granted marketing authorization for ATRIPLA(R) (efavirenz 600 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg), formally approving ATRIPLA(R) for commercialization in the 27 countries of the European Union, as well as in Norway and Iceland. ATRIPLA(R) has been launched in the United Kingdom, Germany and Austria.

In December, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Medarex, Inc. announced top-line data from three registrational trials that constitute the monotherapy program for ipilimumab in patients with metastatic melanoma. The companies plan to meet with regulatory agencies in the near future to discuss possible regulatory pathways forward based on these data.

In November, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pierre Fabre Medicament announced the termination of the license agreement for the development of vinflunine, a chemotherapy agent under investigation for the treatment of advanced or metastatic bladder cancer and other tumor types.

In November, ABILIFY(R) (aripiprazole) was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as adjunctive, or add-on, treatment to antidepressant therapy (ADT) in adults with major depressive disorder (MDD). ABILIFY(R) is the first medication approved by the FDA as add-on treatment for MDD. The FDA also approved ABILIFY(R) for the treatment of schizophrenia in adolescent patients (ages 13-17) and accepted for Priority Review the supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for the treatment of pediatric patients (ages 10-17) with Bipolar I Disorder.

In November, the FDA approved new labeling for SPRYCEL(TM) to include a lower recommended starting dose of 100 mg once daily and safety and efficacy data in a greater number of patients with chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) resistant or intolerant to prior therapy including GLEEVEC(R) (imatinib mesylate). The previous recommending starting dose was 70 mg twice daily.

In October, the company launched IXEMPRA(TM) (ixabepilone), for the treatment of patients with metastatic or locally advanced breast cancer, in the U.S. In addition, the Japanese New Drug Application for ixabepilone was submitted in December, and the Marketing Authorization Application for ixabepilone is under review by the European Medicines Evaluation Agency following submission in September.

PRODUCTIVITY TRANSFORMATION INITIATIVE

The company undertook a broad range of actions in the fourth quarter as part of the previously announced, three-year Productivity Transformation Initiative, which is reducing costs, streamlining operations and rationalizing global manufacturing. The initiative, which is on track to achieve $1.5 billion in cost savings and cost avoidance by 2010, is central to the company's strategy to become a more nimble and flexible Next Generation BioPharma enterprise. In line with the previously announced guidance, the company recorded a $292 million charge in the fourth quarter in connection with the initiative. Among the many productivity activities across the entire company this quarter, the company announced the impending closure of several manufacturing facilities, including Barceloneta, Puerto Rico and Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.

FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

-- Fourth quarter 2007 net sales from continuing operations increased 33%

to $5.4 billion, including a 5% favorable foreign exchange impact

compared to the same period in 2006. U.S. net sales from continuing

operations increased 51% to $3.0 billion for the quarter compared to

2006, primarily due to increased PLAVIX(R) sales, as well as the

continued growth of key and newer products. International net sales

from continuing operations increased 15% to $2.4 billion, including a

10% favorable foreign exchange impact.

-- Cost of products sold, as a percentage of net sales, decreased to 33.8%

in the fourth quarter of 2007 compared to 34.4% in the same period in

2006. The margin improvement was primarily due to sales growth of

higher margin products in 2007.

-- Marketing, selling and administrative expenses increased by 5% to $1.3

billion in the fourth quarter of 2007 compared to the same period in

2006, primarily due to foreign exchange impact.

-- Advertising and product promotion spending increased by 16% to $483

million in the fourth quarter of 2007 from $415 million in the same

period in 2006, driven primarily by increased spending for

direct-to-consumer advertising for PLAVIX(R), ABILIFY(R) and

ORENCIA(R), as well as investments to support the launch of

IXEMPRA(TM).

-- Research and development expenses increased 42% to $1,138 million in

the fourth quarter of 2007 from $799 million in the same period in

2006. This increase primarily reflects the in-process research and

development charge of $230 million in 2007 in connection with the

acquisition of Adnexus.

INCOME TAXES

The effective tax rate on income from continuing operations before minority interest and income taxes was 67.8% for the three months ended December 31, 2007, compared with a tax benefit of 54.3% on the loss from continuing operations before minority interest and income taxes for the three months ended December 31, 2006. The fourth quarter 2007 tax rate was impacted by an impairment on the company's investment in certain financial instruments with no tax benefit and the non-deductible write-off of acquired in-process research & development expenses related to the acquisition of Adnexus. The fourth quarter 2006 tax benefit was in part attributable to the reinstatement of the U. S. Federal Research and Development credit in December 2006, which was partially offset by the treatment of provisions for a portion of certain litigation reserves as non-deductible.

SPECIFIED ITEMS, INCLUDING IMPAIRMENT CHARGE

In the three months ended December 31, 2007 and 2006, the company recorded specified income and expense items that affected the comparability of the results. This included fourth quarter 2007 charges of $292 million in connection with the execution of the previously announced Productivity Transformation Initiative, $230 million for acquired in-process research and development relating to the acquisition of Adnexus and $275 million relating to an impairment of the company's investment in certain auction rate securities (ARS).

As of December 31, 2007, the company had approximately $2.2 billion of cash, cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities. In addition, the company had $811 million of principal invested in ARS. The ARS held by the company are private placement securities with long-term nominal maturities for which the interest rates are reset through a dutch auction each month. The monthly auctions historically have provided a liquid market for these securities. The company's investments in ARS represent interests in collateralized debt obligations supported by pools of residential and commercial mortgages or credit cards, insurance securitizations and other structured credits, including corporate bonds. Some of the underlying collateral for the ARS held by the company consists of sub-prime mortgages.

Consistent with the company's investment policy guidelines, the ARS investments held by the company all had AAA/Aaa credit ratings at the time of purchase. With the liquidity issues experienced in global credit and capital markets, the ARS held by the company at December 31, 2007 have experienced multiple failed auctions as the amount of securities submitted for sale has exceeded the amount of purchase orders. In addition, in the fourth quarter of 2007, $79 million of principal invested in ARS held by the company were downgraded and others were placed on credit watch. All of these securities retain at least one AAA rating.

The estimated market value of the company's ARS holdings at December 31, 2007 was $419 million, which reflects a $392 million adjustment to the principal value of $811 million. Although the ARS continue to pay interest according to their stated terms, based on third-party valuation models and an analysis of other-than-temporary impairment factors, the company has recorded an impairment charge of $275 million in the fourth quarter, reflecting the portion of ARS holdings that the company has concluded have an other-than- temporary decline in value. In addition, the company recorded an unrealized pre-tax loss of $142 million in other comprehensive income as a reduction in shareholders' equity, reflecting $117 million of adjustments to ARS holdings and $25 million of other marketable securities that the company has concluded have a temporary decline in value. The $275 million impairment charge does not have a material impact on the company's liquidity or financial flexibility.

Historically, given the liquidity created by the auctions, ARS were presented as current assets under marketable securities on the company's balance sheet. Given the failed auctions, the company's ARS are illiquid until there is a successful auction for them. Accordingly, the entire amount of such remaining ARS has been reclassified from current to non-current assets on the company's balance sheet.

If uncertainties in the credit and capital markets continue, these markets deteriorate further or the company experiences any additional ratings downgrades on any investments in its portfolio (including on ARS), the company may incur additional impairments to its investment portfolio, which could negatively affect the company's financial condition, cash flow and reported earnings. The company believes that based on the company's current cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balances of $2.2 billion at December 31, 2007 and expected operating cash flows, the current lack of liquidity in the credit and capital markets will not have a material impact on the company's liquidity, cash flow, financial flexibility or its ability to fund its operations, including the dividend.

For information on specified items, see Appendix 2. Details reconciling these non-GAAP amounts with GAAP amounts including specified items are provided in Appendix 1 attached and in supplemental materials available on the company's website.

PHARMACEUTICALS

Worldwide pharmaceutical sales increased 39% to $4.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2007, including a 5% favorable foreign exchange impact, compared to the same period in 2006.

U.S. pharmaceutical sales increased 65% to $2.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2007 compared to the same period in 2006, primarily due to increased PLAVIX(R) sales, as well as the continued growth of ABILIFY(R), REYATAZ(R), the SUSTIVA(R) Franchise and ERBITUX(R), and sales of newer products ORENCIA(R), BARACLUDE(R), SPRYCEL(TM) and IXEMPRA(TM).

International pharmaceutical sales increased 16%, including a 10% favorable foreign exchange impact, to $1.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2007 compared to the same period in 2006. The increase was primarily due to sales growth in REYATAZ(R) and ABILIFY(R) and newer products ORENCIA(R), BARACLUDE(R) and SPRYCEL(TM), partially offset by increased generic competition for PRAVACHOL(R) and TAXOL(R). The company's reported international sales do not include copromotion sales reported by its alliance partner, sanofi-aventis, for PLAVIX(R) and AVAPRO(R)/AVALIDE(R), which continue to show growth in the fourth quarter of 2007.

Product Sales

-- Sales of PLAVIX(R), a platelet aggregation inhibitor that is part of

the company's alliance with sanofi-aventis increased 177%, including a

4% favorable foreign exchange impact, to $1,374 million in the fourth

quarter of 2007, from $496 million in the same period in 2006. Sales

of PLAVIX(R) increased in the U.S. to $1,178 million in the fourth

quarter of 2007 from $343 million in the same period in 2006. The

comparison to the fourth quarter 2006 sales reflects the adverse impact

of generic competition for PLAVIX(R) in 2006, which the company

estimates to be in the range of $700 million to $750 million.

Estimated total U.S. prescription demand for clopidogrel bisulfate

(branded and generic) increased by 6% in the fourth quarter of 2007

compared to 2006. Estimated total U.S. prescription demand for branded

PLAVIX(R) increased by 295% in the same period.

-- Sales of AVAPRO(R)/AVALIDE(R), an angiotensin II receptor blocker for

the treatment of hypertension, also part of the sanofi-aventis

alliance, increased 7%, including a 5% favorable foreign exchange

impact, to $328 million in the fourth quarter of 2007 from $307 million

in the same period in 2006. U.S. sales increased 1% to $183 million in

the fourth quarter of 2007
