  • Total revenue guidance range unchanged at $17.8 billion to $18.2 billion.
  • Adjusted EPS to be above the midpoint of the range of $7.05–$7.35.
  • Adjusted tax rate to be in the range of 11 percent to 12 percent.  This reflects the impact of a higher excise tax enacted by the Puerto Rico government, to be effective July 1 of this year. The tax, which is charged to Cost of Sales, is creditable against U.S. federal income taxes.  Excluding the Puerto Rico excise tax, Amgen expects the adjusted tax rate for 2013 to be in the range of 15 percent to 16 percent.
  • Capital expenditures guidance unchanged at approximately $700 million.
  • First Quarter Product and Pipeline Update The Company provided the following information on clinical programs:

  • Talimogene laherparepvec:  The Company discussed that data from a Phase 3 study in melanoma will be presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2013 Annual Meeting in June.  The Company also discussed that primary analysis of the overall survival secondary end point is expected in late 2013.

  • Biosimilars:  The Company discussed plans to commence a pivotal study for biosimilar Herceptin® (trastuzumab) in the second quarter.

    Forward-Looking Statements
    This news release contains forward-looking statements that involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those discussed below and others that can be found in our Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012, and in any subsequent periodic reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K.  Amgen is providing this information as of the date of this news release and does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this document as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

    No forward-looking statement can be guaranteed and actual results may differ materially from those we project.  The Company's results may be affected by our ability to successfully market both new and existing products domestically and internationally, clinical and regulatory developments (domestic or foreign) involving current and future products, sales growth of recently launched products, competition from other products (domestic or foreign), and difficulties or delays in manufacturing our products.  In addition, sales of our products are affected by reimbursement policies imposed by third-party payors, including governments, private insurance plans and managed care providers and may be affected by regulatory, clinical and guideline developments and domestic and international trends toward managed care and healthcare cost containment as well as U.S. legislation affecting pharmaceutical pricing and reimbursement.  Government and others' regulations and reimbursement policies may affect the development, usage and pricing of our products.  Furthermore, our research, testing, pricing, marketing and other operations are subject to extensive regulation by domestic and foreign government regulatory authorities.  We or others could identify safety, side effects or manufacturing problems with our products after they are on the market.  Our business may be impacted by government investigations, litigation and product liability claims.  If we fail to meet the compliance obligations in the corporate integrity agreement between us and the U.S. government, we could become subject to significant sanctions.  Further, while we routinely obtain patents for our products and technology, the protection offered by our patents and patent applications may be challenged, invalidated or circumvented by our competitors.  We depend on third parties for a significant portion of our manufacturing capacity for the supply of certain of our current and future products and limits on supply may constrain sales of certain of our current products and product candidate development.  In addition, we compete with other companies with respect to some of our marketed products as well as for the discovery and development of new products.  Discovery or identification of new product candidates cannot be guaranteed and movement from concept to product is uncertain; consequently, there can be no guarantee that any particular product candidate will be successful and become a commercial product.  Further, some raw materials, medical devices and component parts for our products are supplied by sole third-party suppliers.  Our business performance could affect or limit the ability of our Board of Directors to declare a dividend or our ability to pay a dividend or repurchase our common stock.  Amgen Inc.Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income - GAAP(In millions, except per share data)(Unaudited)Three months endedMarch 31, 20132012Revenues:Product sales$ 4,151$ 3,901Other revenues87147Total revenues4,2384,048Operating expenses:Cost of sales744750Research and development878736Selling, general and administrative1,1581,079Other166Total operating expenses2,7962,571Operating income1,4421,477Interest expense, net263235Interest and other income, net164124Income before income taxes1,3431,366Provision for income taxes(91)182Net income$ 1,434$ 1,184Earnings per share:Basic$   1.91$   1.50Diluted$   1.88$   1.48Average shares used in calculation of earnings per share:Basic751791Diluted764800

Due to these factors, the effective tax rates for the adjustments to our GAAP income before income taxes, for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, were 28.2% and 35.2%, respectivelyNote:For the three months ended March 31, 2012, expenses related to amortization of certain acquired intangible assets within operating expenses have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentationAmgen Inc.Reconciliation of Free Cash Flow(In millions)(Unaudited)Three months endedMarch 31, 20132012Cash Flows from Operations
