Pfizer Reports Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2012 Financial Results

Pfizer has reported financial results for fourth-quarter and full-year 2012. Fourth-quarter 2012 revenues were $15.1 billion, a decrease of 7% compared with $16.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011, which reflects an operational decline of $802 million, or 5%, and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange of $271 million, or 2%.

Pfizer's fourth-quarter 2012 US revenues were $5.8 billion, a decrease of 9% compared with the year-ago quarter. The company notes that the decrease was primarily the result of the loss of exclusivity of Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) in November 2011 and Geodon (ziprasidone) in March 2012. International revenues were $9.3 billion, a decrease of 5% compared with the prior-year quarter, mainly due to the losses of exclusivity of Lipitor in developed Europe during second-quarter 2012 and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange. US revenues represented 38% of total revenues in fourth-quarter 2012 compared with 39% in the year-ago quarter, while international revenues represented 62% of total revenues in fourth-quarter 2012 compared with 61% in the year-ago quarter.

Full-year 2012 revenues were $59.0 billion, a decrease of 10% compared with $65.3 billion in full-year 2011, which reflects an operational decline of $4.8 billion, or 8%, and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange of $1.5 billion, or 2%. For full-year 2012, US revenues were $23.1 billion, a decrease of 14% compared with full-year 2011. Pfizer has also attributed the decrease to the aforementioned loss of exclusivity of Lipitor. International revenues were $35.9 billion, a decrease of 6% compared with the prior year, mainly due to the previously mentioned losses of exclusivity of Lipitor and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange. US revenues represented 39% of total revenues in full-year 2012 compared with 41% in the previous year, while international revenues represented 61% of total revenues in full-year 2012 compared with 59% in full-year 2011.
