Hospira Reports First-Quarter 2011 Results
Date:4/26/2011

LAKE FOREST, Ill., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hospira, Inc. (NYSE: HSP), a leading global specialty pharmaceutical and medication delivery company, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011. Net sales for the quarter were $1.0 billion, and adjusted* diluted earnings per share were $0.93. (Adjusted* measures exclude certain specified items as described later in this press release and the attached schedules.)

"Hospira started out the year with a stronger-than-expected first quarter, aided by strong U.S. sales of docetaxel and gemcitabine, two major oncolytic pharmaceuticals," said Christopher B. Begley, executive chairman and former chief executive officer (CEO). "During the quarter, we gained momentum on several of our existing and newly launched specialty pharmaceuticals and made good progress in decreasing our level of backorders to better serve our customers. We remain focused on driving quality enhancements throughout the organization and on improving shareholder value through strong execution and sustainable growth."

Continued Begley, "During the quarter, we also welcomed new CEO F. Michael Ball, who joined Hospira on March 28. Mike is the perfect fit for Hospira, and after his first few weeks with us, I am even more confident he is the right person to lead the company and build on all we have accomplished over the past seven years."

Net sales were $1.0 billion in the first quarter of 2011, relatively flat with the first quarter of 2010. Although Specialty Injectable Pharmaceuticals (SIP) delivered strong performance in the first quarter of 2011, driven mainly by the U.S. net sales of the recently launched generic oncolytic docetaxel and several other recently launched compounds, the year-over-year comparison was made difficult because of the benefit realized in the first quarter of 2010 from the U.S. net sales impact of generic oncolytic oxaliplatin, which Hospira temporarily discontinued in mid-2010.  

Adjusted* income from operations decreased 15 percent to $203 million in the first quarter of 2011, compared to $240 million in the first quarter of 2010. The decline was a result of a difficult year-over-year comparison driven by strong margin contribution from U.S. net sales of oxaliplatin in the first quarter of 2010.  Improved manufacturing efficiency from the company's Project Fuel optimization initiatives and margin contribution from U.S. sales of docetaxel in the first quarter of 2011 were tempered by the joint-venture arrangement related to the production of docetaxel, as well as by higher research and development expenses associated with new product development programs.

The effective tax rate on an adjusted basis* in the quarter was 23.0 percent compared to 27.1 percent in the first quarter of 2010. The decrease primarily reflects the impact of the renewal by the U.S. federal government of several tax extender bills that were not in effect in the first quarter of 2010.

Cash Flow Cash flow from operations for the first quarter resulted in an inflow of $6 million. Higher inventory levels and accounts receivables related to U.S. sales of docetaxel somewhat offset the otherwise strong operating performance in the quarter.

Capital expenditures were $62 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared to $41 million for the same period in 2010. The increase is primarily associated with investments related to manufacturing optimization and information technology (IT) initiatives.

Stock Repurchase AuthorizationOn April 25, 2011, Hospira announced that its board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to $1.0 billion in common stock. The multi-year program reaffirms Hospira's commitment to return value to its shareholders, yet provides the flexibility to reinvest in the business and pursue future growth opportunities. The company recently completed a $400 million share repurchase authorization initiated in 2006.

2011 Projections Hospira is maintaining guidance for net sales growth of approximately 5 to 7 percent on a constant-currency basis, with foreign exchange expected to contribute a positive 1 percent.

Adjusted* diluted earnings per share projections for full-year 2011 remain between $3.90 and $4.00 per share, or year-over-year growth of 18 to 21 percent.

The reconciliation between the projected 2011 adjusted* diluted earnings per share and GAAP diluted earnings per share follows:

Diluted earnings per share -- adjusted*$3.90 - $4.00Charges related to Project Fuel initiativescompleted in March 2011

($0.04)Charges related to facilities optimization initiatives

($0.03)Tax benefit from the settlement of aU.S. income tax audit$0.12Estimated $70 million for the amortization and impairment of intangible assets related to certain acquisitions

$3.67 - $3.77The adjusting items are shown net of tax in aggregate of $28 million, which is calculated for the specified adjustments stated above, based on the statutory tax rate in the various tax jurisdictions in which the items are expected to occur.

The company is maintaining its guidance for cash flow from operations to range between $650 million and $700 million. Depreciation and amortization also remain unchanged, in the range of $230 million to $250 million. Capital expenditures are now projected to range between $375 million and $400 million as a result of capacity expansion efforts.

The Non-GAAP financial measures contained in this press release include comparisons at constant currency rates (reflecting comparative local currency balances at prior period foreign exchange rates), which we define as current period net sales excluding the impact of the change in foreign exchange rates less prior period reported net sales divided by prior period reported net sales. This financial measure provides information on the change in net sales assuming that foreign currency exchange rates have not changed between the prior and the current period. Management believes the use of this financial measure aids in the understanding of our change in net sales without the impact of foreign currency. All Non-GAAP financial measures are intended to supplement the applicable GAAP measures and should not be considered in isolation from, or a replacement for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
