2016 second-quarter and first-half Aggregate Sanofi sales

Unless otherwise indicated, all percentage changes in sales in this press release are stated at CER(7).

In the second quarter of 2016, Aggregate Company sales were €8,868 million, down 4.3% at 2016 exchange rates. Exchange rate movements had a negative effect of 4.1 percentage points with the adverse evolution of the U.S. dollar as well as several emerging market currencies more than offsetting the positive effects from the Japanese Yen. At CER, Aggregate Company sales decreased 0.2%. First-half Aggregate Company sales reached €17,411 million, down 3.2% at 2016 exchange rates. Exchange rate movements had an unfavorable effect of 3.4 percentage points.

This performance included a negative currency impact related to the change of exchange rate applied for the translation of Venezuela operations, resulting from the evolution of the exchange system in February 2016 as well as from the persistent inability to exchange Venezuelan bolivars for U.S. dollars at the privileged official rate(8). In addition, in the second quarter of 2015, Sanofi benefited from a significant increase in product demand in Venezuela, due to buying patterns associated with local market conditions. As a consequence, sales in Venezuela were €6 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to €199 million in the second quarter of 2015. Excluding Venezuela, Aggregate Company sales increased 1.9% and 2.5% in the second quarter and in the first half of 2016, respectively.

Over the quarter, sales of Lantus® were €1,465 million down 11.2%.

Second-quarter Consumer Healthcare (CHC) sales were €800 million, down 4.3%. Excluding Venezuela and the divestiture of smaller products, CHC sales were up 2.7% driven by the strong performance in Australia, Mexico and Argentina, which was partially offset by Russia. Second-quarter sales of CHC in the U.S. were down 0.8% to €229 million reflecting a mild allergy season impacting sales of Allegra® (down 18.3% to €56 million). In Emerging Markets, sales were down 13.0% to €289 million (down 1.8% excluding Venezuela) impacted by lower sales in Russia. In the Rest of the World, second-quarter sales grew 18.0% to €69 million sustained by the allergy franchise and the vitamins business in Australia. Over the quarter, in Europe, sales increased 0.9% to €213 million (impacted by divestitures of small products), buoyed by a strong Doliprane® performance due to a successful DTC campaign. First-half sales of CHC reached €1,705 million, down 3.6% and up 3.4% excluding Venezuela and the divestiture of several small products.

On June 27, 2016, Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim announced the signing of contracts to secure the strategic transaction initiated in December 2015 which consists of an exchange of Sanofi’s animal health business and Boehringer Ingelheim’s consumer healthcare business. This step marks a major milestone before closing of the transaction which is expected by year-end 2016 and remains subject to approval by all regulatory authorities in different territories.

Generics

Second-quarter sales of Generics were down 1.9% to €474 million. Excluding Venezuela, sales were up 0.4% driven by Emerging Markets (up 8.2%) offsetting lower sales of the Plavix authorized generic in Japan. First-half sales of Generics increased 0.6% to €933 million (up 3.3% excluding Venezuela).

VaxServe sales

VaxServe is a U.S. entity of the Vaccines segment. VaxServe activities include products distribution in the U.S. in channels that are not the primary focus of Sanofi Pasteur. VaxServe complements its Sanofi Pasteur products offering by distributing vaccines and other products from third party manufacturers. All VaxServe sales were reported on the line Net sales in the past.

In order to provide more relevant published information, VaxServe sales of non-Sanofi products are reported on the line Other revenues in the income statement from January 1, 2016. Accordingly, prior period comparative net sales have been reclassified to the line Other revenues.

The 2015 quarterly and full-year 2015 business P&L as well as sales of GBUs and franchises by geographic region reflecting this reclassification are available on the Investors section of Sanofi’s website.

In the second quarter of 2015 and in full-year 2015, sales of VaxServe(9) of non-Sanofi products were €110 million and €482 million, respectively.

Vaccines

In the second quarter, consolidated vaccines sales were up 6.3% to €797 million driven by the Polio/Pertussis/Hib Vaccines franchise in Emerging Markets and Travel and other endemics vaccines. In the U.S., sales of vaccines decreased 2.3% to €331 million due to increased competitive pressure on Adacel® and lower sales of Menactra® reflecting favorable CDC order phasing in the U.S during the first quarter of 2016. In Emerging Markets sales of vaccines increased 9.8% driven by Pentaxim® and Hexaxim® growth. First-half sales of Sanofi Pasteur were up 7.1% to €1,422 million.

Second quarter sales of Polio/Pertussis/Hib Vaccines were up 28.6% to €339 million. In Emerging Markets, sales of the franchise increased 43.6% to €178 million driven by the growth of Pentaxim® and Hexaxim® in the Middle-East, Africa, Turkey and Mexico. This performance more than offset lower sales of Pentaxim® and Polio vaccines in China due to local market disruption. In the U.S., sales of Polio/Pertussis/Hib Vaccines were down 1.1% to €88 million reflecting a slight decrease in sales of IPV vaccines. Pentacel® sales in the U.S. were €56 million, up 1.8%. As previously communicated, Sanofi Pasteur is experiencing Pentacel® manufacturing delays and is not meeting all current demand. Supply improvements are expected in the second half of 2016. First-half sales of Polio/Pertussis/Hib vaccines increased 17.1% to €627 million.

Dengvaxia®, the world’s first dengue vaccine is now approved in five countries (Mexico, the Philippines, Brazil, El Salvador and Costa Rica). Dengvaxia® was launched in the Philippines in the first quarter and in El Salvador in July. Additionally, a public vaccination program in Paraná State in Brazil was announced in late July and is expected to cover half a million people. Despite these developments, the overall uptake of Dengvaxia® is delayed by recent political changes and economic volatility in Latin America. With only a limited number of public immunization programs confirmed to date in endemic countries and the majority of regulatory approvals still pending in Asia, Dengvaxia® is unlikely to meet Sanofi’s prior sales expectations for 2016. Dengvaxia® sales in the second quarter were limited to private market sales in the Philippines. First-half sales of Dengvaxia® were €20 million corresponding to the sales of the first dose of the first public dengue immunization program in the Philippines in the first quarter of 2016.

Sales of Influenza Vaccines were €96 million, a decrease of 10.5% reflecting lower sales in Brazil due to increased supply of the Butantan Institute.

(9) Sales of VaxServe in Q2 2016 and first-half 2016 are provided in the Financial Results

Menactra® sales were €126 million, a decrease of 3.0% due to favorable CDC order phasing in the U.S in the first quarter of 2016. First-half sales of Menactra® increased 10.0% to €237 million.

Second-quarter Adult Booster Vaccines sales were down 9.3% to €104 million reflecting increased Adacel® competitive pressure in the U.S. First-half sales of Adult Booster vaccines decreased 12.2% to €184 million.

Second-quarter sales of Travel and Other Endemic Vaccines increased 7.2% to €101 million driven by increased sales of rabies and typhoid vaccines. First-half sales of Travel and Other Endemic Vaccines were up 6.1% to €184 million.

Sales of Sanofi Pasteur MSD (not consolidated), the joint venture with Merck & Co. in Europe, increased 9.0% (on a reported basis) to €175 million and 13.4% (on a reported basis) to €340 million in the second quarter and first half of 2016, respectively. In March, Sanofi Pasteur and Merck announced their intent to end their joint vaccines operations in Europe, Sanofi Pasteur MSD, to pursue their own distinct growth strategies in Europe. Sanofi Pasteur and Merck expect the project to be completed by the end of 2016, subject to local labor laws and regulations and regulatory approvals.

In the second quarter, Animal Health sales were up 9.1% to €725 million driven by the success of NexGard® family of products, Merial’s next generation flea and tick products for dogs, in the U.S., Europe and Japan.

Second-quarter sales of the Companion Animals segment increased 8.6% to €493 million boosted by the success of NexGard® and NexGard® Spectra which more than offset the decline in the Frontline® family of products. HeartGard® also contributed to growth in the Companion Animals segment.

Sales of the Production Animals segment increased 10.1% to €232 million in the second quarter reflecting strong performance of the Avian business in Emerging Markets as well as Ruminant business in the U.S. and Europe.

In the second quarter, sales in the U.S. increased 1.3% to €3,118 million. The strong performance of the multiple sclerosis franchise (up 62.6%), rare disease franchise (up 12.3%) and Animal Health (up 4.6%) more than offset lower sales of the diabetes franchise (down 7.1%), Vaccines (down 2.3%) and the Auvi-Q® impact.

(10) Merial is reported on a single line in the consolidated income statements in accordance with IFRS 5 (Non-current assets held for sale and discontinued operations). Sanofi will continue to manage and report the performance of Merial, which will remain an operating segment consistent with IFRS 8.

First-half sales in the U.S. increased 1.4% to €6,084 million.

Aggregate sales in Emerging Markets were down 0.5% to €2,534 million in the second quarter. Excluding Venezuela, Aggregate sales in Emerging Markets grew 6.7% driven by Diabetes (up 11.7%), Rare Diseases (up 28.2%), Vaccines (up 11.5%) and Animal Health (up 15.6%). In the Asia region, Aggregate sales were up 5.3% to €804 million in the second quarter. Over the quarter, sales in China increased 2.6% to €512 million; the strong performance of Pharmaceuticals (up 11.7%) was partially offset by lower vaccines sales (-84.9%). In Latin America, second-quarter Aggregate sales were down 15.1% to €698 million and up 5.7% excluding Venezuela driven by sales in Argentina, Colombia and Mexico. Aggregate sales in Brazil were down 3.3% to €280 million impacted by lower sales of Flu vaccines and Renagel®. Aggregate sales in the Eurasia region increased 4.3% to €270 million driven by Turkey. Sales in Russia were down 12.6% to €110 million associated with the CHC business. In Africa, the Middle-East and South Asia, Aggregate sales were up 10.3% to €736 million sustained by the strong performance in Africa (up 16.6%). In the Emerging Markets, first-half sales increased 1.7% to €4,907 million. Excluding Venezuela, Aggregate first-half sales in Emerging Markets grew 9.7%.  

Aggregate sales in Europe were up 3.3% to €2,360 million in the second quarter. The performance of Multiple Sclerosis (up 78.3%), Rare Diseases (up 10.7%) and Vaccines (up 34.9%) franchises was partially offset by lower sales of Established Rx products (down 3.0%) mainly impacted by generic competition to Renagel®. In Europe, first-half sales increased 2.5% to €4,732 million.

Aggregate second-quarter sales in Japan decreased 24.4% to €446 million, impacted by generic competition to Plavix® (down 59.1%). In Japan, first-half sales decreased 24.9% to €893 million.

R&D update

Consult Appendix 8 for full overview of Sanofi’s R&D pipeline

Regulatory update

Regulatory updates since the publication of the first quarter results on April 29, 2016 include the following:

  • In July, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in Japan granted marketing authorization for Praluent® (alirocumab) for the treatment of uncontrolled low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in certain adult patients with hypercholesterolemia at high cardiovascular risk. The 300mg once-monthly dosing of Praluent® was also filed in U.S. and EU.
  • In July, the file for the Marketing Authorization Application for sarilumab in Rheumatoid Arthritis was accepted for review by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
  • In May, the Endocrinologic and Metabolic Drugs Advisory Committee (EMDAC) of the FDA recommended the approval(11) of the New Drug Application (NDA) for Adlyxin® (lixisenatide) and for the fixed-ratio combination of basal insulin glargine 100 Units/mL and GLP-1 receptor agonist lixisenatide for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes. The fixed-ratio combination of basal insulin glargine and GLP-1 receptor agonist lixisenatide is undergoing FDA review, with decisions anticipated in August 2016. Adlyxin® (lixisenatide) was approved in the U.S. at the end of July.

At the end of July 2016, the R&D pipeline contained 44 pharmaceutical new molecular entities (excluding Life Cycle Management) and vaccine candidates in clinical development of which 14 are in Phase III or have been submitted to the regulatory authorities for approval.

Portfolio update

Phase III:

  • In June, the results of the pivotal Phase III LixiLan-O and LixiLan-L clinical trials with the investigational titratable fixed-ratio combination of basal insulin glargine 100 Units/mL and lixisenatide in adults with type 2 diabetes were presented at the American Diabetes Association scientific Sessions. Both studies met their primary endpoints, demonstrating statistically superior reduction of HbA1c with the titratable fixed-ratio combination versus comparators (lixisenatide and insulin glargine 100 Units/mL, respectively).

(11) The members of the Advisory Committee voted 12-2 for an approval of LixiLan

  • In June, Sanofi and Regeneron announced that a one-year Phase III study, known as LIBERTY AD CHRONOS, evaluating investigational dupilumab met its primary and key secondary endpoints. In the study, dupilumab with topical corticosteroids (TCS) was compared to TCS alone in moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis adult patients. Patients enrolled in the study were inadequately controlled by TCS with or without topical calcineurin inhibitor. Dupilumab with TCS significantly improved measures of overall disease severity at 16 and 52 weeks, when compared to placebo with TCS.
  • Based on the results of the FIRSTANA Phase III study comparing Jevtana® (cabazitaxel) versus Taxotere® (docetaxel) in chemotherapy-naïve metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer, the decision was made not to submit a first line indication for Jevtana® as the results did not provide the level of benefit that is needed for claiming new indication. Jevtana® currently has a second line indication and FIRSTANA was conducted as part of the post marketing commitment with the FDA.

Phase II:

  • SAR439684, a PD-1 inhibitor (alliance with Regeneron), entered Phase II in advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma.

Phase I:

  • It has been decided not to pursue the development of SAR438544, a stable glucagon analog, in diabetes.

In the first half of 2016, the ratio of Aggregate R&D to Aggregate sales was 1.2 percentage points higher at 15.0% compared to the same period of 2015.

Aggregate selling general and administrative expenses (SG&A) increased 0.1% to €2,650 million in the second quarter. At CER, Aggregate SG&A was up 3.9% mainly reflecting the U.S. launch expenses of Praluent®, and pre-launch costs for sarilumab and dupilumab. The ratio of Aggregate SG&A to Aggregate sales increased 1.3 percentage points to 29.9% compared with the second quarter of 2015. In the first half of 2016, the ratio of Aggregate selling and general expenses to Aggregate sales was 0.8 percentage points higher to 29.1% compared with the first half of 2015.

Second-quarter Aggregate other current operating income net of expenses was -€23 million versus -€20 million for the same period of 2015. In the second quarter of 2015, this line included a foreign exchange loss of €34 million booked in connection with Sanofi‘s Venezuelan operations. First-half Aggregate other current operating income net of expenses was €56 million versus -€87 million in the first half of 2015.

The Aggregate share of profits from associates was stable at €30 million in the second quarter. The Aggregate share of profits from associates included Sanofi’s share in Regeneron profit as well as Sanofi’s share of profit in Sanofi Pasteur MSD (the Vaccines joint venture with Merck & Co. in Europe). In the first half, the share of profits from associates was €53 million versus €61 million for the same period of 2015.

Aggregate non-controlling interests were -€23 million in the second quarter versus -€29 million in the second quarter of 2015. First-half non-controlling interests were -€50 million versus -€62 million for the same period of 2015.

Aggregate business operating income was €2,285 million, down 11.0%. At CER, Aggregate business operating income decreased 5.8%. The ratio of Aggregate business operating income to Aggregate net sales decreased 1.9 percentage points to 25.8% versus the same period of 2015. First-half Aggregate business operating income was €4,669 million, down 5.9% (or down 1.6% at CER). In the first half of 2016, the ratio of Aggregate business operating income to Aggregate sales decreased 0.8 percentage points to 26.8%.

Net Aggregate financial expenses were €76 million in the second quarter versus €112 million in the second quarter of 2015. In the second quarter of 2016, this line included a limited capital gain on a minor asset sale. First-half net financial expenses were €194 million versus €209 million in the first half of 2015.

Second-quarter and first-half 2016 effective tax rate (including Animal Health) were 24.0% compared with 25.0% in the same periods of 2015.

Second-quarter business net income(12) decreased 8.7% to €1,680 million (down 3.3% at CER). The ratio of business net income to Aggregate sales was 18.9%, a decrease of 1.0 percentage points compared with the second quarter of 2015. First-half business net income decreased 4.6% to €3,402 million, (stable at CER). The ratio of business net income to net sales decreased 0.3 percentage points to 19.5% compared to the first half of 2015.

(13) See page 7, chapter on Vaccines

In the second quarter of 2016, business earnings per share(12) (EPS) was €1.31, a decrease of 7.1% on a reported basis and 2.1% at CER. The average number of shares outstanding was 1,286.8 million in the second quarter of 2016 versus 1,305.9 million in the second quarter of 2015. In the first half of 2016, business earnings per share(12) was €2.64, down 3.3% on a reported basis and up 1.5% at CER. The average number of shares outstanding was 1,287.6 million in the first half versus 1,307.2 million in the first half of 2015.

2016 guidance

Sanofi continues to expect 2016 Business EPS to be broadly stable at CER, barring unforeseen major adverse events. In addition, the currency impact on 2016 full-year business EPS is estimated to be around -4%, applying June 2016 average rates to the two remaining quarters of 2016.

From business net income to IFRS net income reported (see Appendix 3)

In the first half of 2016, the main reconciling items between business net income and IFRS net income reported were:

  • A €877 million amortization charge related to fair value remeasurement on intangible assets of acquired companies (primarily Aventis: €276 million and Genzyme: €431 million) and to acquired intangible assets (licenses/products: €68 million). A €433 million amortization charge on intangible assets related to fair value remeasurement of acquired companies (primarily Aventis: €136 million and, Genzyme: €213 million), and to acquired intangible assets (licenses/products: €34 million) was booked in the second quarter. These items have no cash impact on the Company.
  • An impairment of intangible assets of €52 million recorded in the second quarter linked to small products. This item has no cash impact on the Company.
  • A charge of €67 million (of which €38 million in the second quarter) reflecting an increase of Bayer contingent considerations linked to Lemtrada® (charge of €41 million, of which €12 million on the second quarter) and CVR fair value adjustment.
  • Restructuring costs of €627 million (including €127 million in the second quarter mainly related to transformation in Europe and North America).
  • A €548 million tax effect arising from the items listed above, comprising €307 million of deferred taxes generated by amortization charged against intangible assets, €210 million associated with restructuring costs, €16 million associated with impairment of intangible assets and €15 million associated with fair value remeasurement of contingent consideration liabilities The second quarter tax effect was €210 million, including €151 million of deferred taxes generated by amortization charged against intangible assets, €39 million associated with restructuring costs and a charge of €16 million associated with impairment of intangible asset (see Appendix 3).
  • In “Share of profits/losses from associates and joint-ventures”, an income of €54 million net of tax (which included a charge of €16 million related to second quarter of 2016), mainly relating to the share of fair-value re-measurement on asset and liabilities of associates and the share of amortization of intangible assets of acquired associates and joint-ventures. This item has no cash impact on the Company.
  • A tax of €113 million on dividends paid to shareholders of Sanofi.
  • In Animal Health items, a net expense of €13 million (which included an income of €58 million related to the second quarter of 2016), mainly relating to a change in deferred tax charge resulting from taxable temporary differences relating to investments in subsidiaries since it is likely that these differences will reverse.

Capital Allocation

In the first half of 2016, net cash generated by operating activities decreased by 17.6% to €2,541 million after capital expenditures of €700 million and an increase in working capital of €753 million. This net Cash Flow has contributed to finance a share repurchase (€1,403 million), dividend paid by Sanofi (€3,759 million), acquisitions and partnerships net of disposals (€663 million) and restructuring costs and similar items (€347 million). As a consequence, net debt increased from €7,254 million at December 31, 2015 to €11,001 million at the end of June 2016 (amount net of €6,076 million cash and cash equivalents).

Company

“Company” corresponds to Sanofi and its subsidiaries

Aggregate

Sanofi comments include Animal Health Business for every income statement line using “Aggregate” wording;

Aggregate Company sales at constant exchange rates (CER)

When we refer to changes in our Aggregate net sales “at constant exchange rates” (CER), this means that we exclude the effect of changes in exchange rates.

We eliminate the effect of exchange rates by recalculating Aggregate net sales for the relevant period at the exchange rates used for the previous period.
