Second-quarter and first-half 2017 accounts reflect the acquisition of the former Boehringer Ingelheim Consumer Healthcare (CHC) business and the disposal of the Animal Health business (completed on January 1, 2017(4)). In accordance with IFRS 5 (Non-Current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations), Animal Health results in 2016 and gain on disposal in 2017 are reported separately. Second-quarter and first-half 2017 income statements also reflect the consolidation of European operations related to Sanofi vaccine portfolio, following the termination of the Sanofi Pasteur MSD joint venture (SPMSD JV) with Merck at the end of December 2016.

 

Q2 2017 sales growth supported by Specialty Care, Vaccines and Emerging Markets

  • Net sales were €8,663 million, up 6.4% on a reported basis and 5.5%(2) at CER reflecting the change in scope of the CHC and vaccines Global Business Units (GBUs). At CER and CS(3), net sales were up 0.6%.
  • Sanofi Genzyme GBU grew 14.3% at CER driven primarily by continued strong sales growth in Multiple Sclerosis; strong U.S. launch of Dupixent® in atopic dermatitis driven by high unmet medical need and early market access.
  • Sanofi Pasteur GBU grew 19.2% at CER and CS as a result of strong sales of pediatric combinations and Menactra®.
  • Diabetes and Cardiovascular GBU sales were down 15.0% at CER; Global Diabetes franchise sales decreased 12.2%.
  • CHC GBU sales were stable at CER and CS mainly due to seasonality in Europe.
  • Emerging Markets(5) sales increased 6.6% at CER and CS driven by robust contribution from China.

2017 business EPS guidance at CER raised on first-half financial results and disciplined expense management

  • Q2 2017 business operating income of €2,299 million, up 4.1% at CER and constant structure.
  • Q2 2017 business EPS(1) grew 1.5% at CER to €1.35 and increased 3.1% on a reported basis.
  • Sanofi now expects 2017 business EPS(1) to be broadly stable(6) at CER, barring unforeseen major adverse events.
  • Currency impact on 2017 business EPS is estimated to be approximately +1% at the average June 2017 exchange rates.

Sustaining innovation in R&D

  • Positive CHMP opinion received for Dupixent® in the EU.
  • Kevzara®, an anti IL6 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, approved in the EU in June.
  • Initiation of Phase 3 ATLAS program for fitusiran in patients with hemophilia.
  • Phase 2/3 studies started for SAR439684 (anti PD-1) in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Basal Cell Carcinoma.

 

Sanofi Chief Executive Officer, Olivier Brandicourt, commented:

"Sanofi Genzyme, Sanofi Pasteur and Emerging Markets were once again major contributors to our performance in the quarter. The continued growth of these businesses, together with disciplined expense management, enabled us to more than offset the headwinds in our Diabetes franchise. Consequently, we feel confident in our full-year outlook and raise our 2017 business EPS guidance. We are also encouraged by the strong uptake of Dupixent® in the U.S. and the approval of Kevzara®. The initiation of Phase 3 studies in additional indications for dupilumab, the Phase 2/3 programs with the anti PD-1 in multiple cancer indications and fitusiran in hemophilia were significant R&D milestones in the second quarter."

2017 second-quarter and first-half Sanofi sales

 

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

 

In the second quarter of 2017, Company sales were €8,663 million, up 6.4% on a reported basis. Exchange rate movements had a favorable effect of 0.9 percentage points mainly reflecting the positive evolution of the U.S. dollar, Brazilian Real and Russian Ruble which more than offset the negative impact from the Egyptian Pound, Turkish Lira, British Pound and Chinese Yuan. Company sales benefited from the acquisition of Boehringer Ingelheim's CHC business and full consolidation of Sanofi's European vaccines operations leading to an increase of 5.5% at CER. At CER and constant structure, Company sales were up 0.6%.

 

First-half Company sales reached €17,311 million, up 8.7% on a reported basis. Exchange rate movements had a favorable effect of 1.7 percentage points. At CER and constant structure, Company sales were up 2.0%.

In the second quarter, Diabetes sales decreased 12.2% to €1,647 million, reflecting lower Lantus® sales in the U.S. Second-quarter U.S. Diabetes sales were down 23.0% to €814 million. First-half U.S. Diabetes sales decreased 19.1% to €1,653 million. In the second half of 2017, Sanofi expects an accelerated decline of U.S. diabetes sales relative to the first half of 2017. This reflects the phased impact of exclusions in commercial formularies at CVS and United Health as well as a high basis of comparison in last year's fourth quarter. Second-quarter sales in Emerging Markets increased 8.4% to €383 million. Sales in Europe were €325 million, a decrease of 3.0% in the second quarter. First-half Diabetes sales decreased 9.2% to €3,310 million.

 

In the second quarter, Sanofi glargine (Lantus® and Toujeo®) sales decreased 13.5% to €1,407 million. In the U.S., Sanofi glargine sales of €782 million were down 23.9% and reflected the impact of the exclusion from various CVS commercial formularies from January 1, 2017 as well as from the United Health commercial formulary which became effective on April 1, 2017. In Europe, Sanofi glargine sales decreased 2.0% to €248 million due to biosimilar competition in several European markets. First-half Sanofi glargine sales decreased 10.7% to €2,825 million.

 

Over the quarter, Lantus® sales were €1,197 million down 19.2%. In the U.S., Lantus® sales decreased 28.1% to €660 million mainly reflecting lower average net price and the aforementioned impact of formulary exclusions. In Europe, second-quarter Lantus® sales were €194 million (down 14.0%) due to biosimilar competition and patients switching to Toujeo®. In Emerging Markets, sales were up 5.6% to €262 million. First-half Lantus® sales decreased 16.7% to €2,423 million.

 

Second-quarter Toujeo® sales were €210 million (up 46.1%) of which €122 million (up 12.3%) were recorded in the U.S., €54 million in Europe (versus €27 million in the second quarter of 2016) and €19 million in Emerging Markets (versus €1 million in the second quarter of 2016). First-half Toujeo® sales increased 59.8% to €402 million.

 

Amaryl® sales were €85 million, down 5.4% in the second quarter, of which €69 million were generated in Emerging Markets (down 2.7%). First-half Amaryl® sales were stable at €174 million.

 

Second-quarter Apidra® sales decreased 2.2% to €93 million. Lower sales in the U.S. (down 13.3% to €27 million) were partially offset by double-digit growth in Emerging Markets (up 15.0% to €23 million). First-half Apidra® sales increased 5.6% to €191 million.

 

Soliqua® 100/33 / SuliquaTM (insulin glargine 100 Units/mL & lixisenatide 33 mcg/mL injection) was launched in the U.S. in January 2017 and SuliquaTM recently in the first European country, the Netherlands. Soliqua® 100/33 / SuliquaTM sales were €5 million in the second quarter and €9 million in the first half.

 

Cardiovascular franchise

 

Second-quarter Praluent® sales (collaboration with Regeneron) were €42 million of which €29 million was in the U.S. and €11 million in Europe. This reflected significant payer utilization management restrictions in the U.S. and limited market access in Europe. First-half Praluent® sales were €76 million versus €33 million in the first half of 2016. In January 2017, the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware issued an injunction that required Sanofi and Regeneron to stop marketing, selling and manufacturing Praluent® in the U.S. starting from February 21, 2017. However, on February 8, 2017, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit stayed (suspended) the permanent injunction for Praluent® during the companies' appeal. As a result, Sanofi and Regeneron will continue marketing, selling and manufacturing Praluent® in the U.S. during the appeal process. The Court of Appeals oral arguments were heard on June 6, 2017. The companies now await a decision from the Court of Appeals on the appeal issues. It is at the Court's discretion when to issue a decision.

 

Second-quarter and first-half Multaq® sales were €83 million (down 3.6%) and €181 million (up 3.5%), respectively.

In the second quarter, Established Rx Products sales decreased 2.3% to €2,559 million. This reflected a decline in sales in Europe (down 6.3% to €881 million) and the impact of generic competition to Plavix® in Japan, which more than offset a solid Emerging Markets performance (up 3.5% to €967 million). First-half Established Rx Products sales decreased 0.9% to €5,199 million.

 

Lovenox® sales decreased 2.4% to €402 million in the second quarter, reflecting increased competition in Europe (down 7.3% to €243 million) following the availability of a biosimilar, which offset the strong performance in Emerging Markets (up 9.7% to €123 million). First-half Lovenox® sales were stable at €817 million.

 

In the second quarter, Plavix® sales were down 0.3% to €385 million due to generic competition in Japan that started in June 2015 (sales in Japan were down 31.2% to €64 million). In Emerging Markets, Plavix sales increased 12.8% to €266 million sustained by the performance in China. First-half Plavix® sales decreased 1.0% to €765 million.

 

Second-quarter Renvela®/Renagel® sales increased 16.8% to €248 million driven by the U.S. performance (up 20% to €209 million). In the U.S. the first generics of Renvela®/Renagel® powder and tablet formulations were approved in June and July, respectively. In Europe, Renvela®/Renagel® sales were down 14.3% to €19 million due to generic competition. First-half Renvela®/Renagel® sales increased 9.0% to €494 million.

 

Aprovel®/Avapro® sales were up 9.1% (to €190 million) driven by product sales to Sanofi's partner in Japan and sales in China. First-half Aprovel®/Avapro® sales increased 11.0% to €383 million.

*CS: constant structure

 

In the second quarter, Consumer Healthcare (CHC) sales increased 42.5% to €1,163 million reflecting the closing of the acquisition of Boehringer Ingelheim CHC business on January 1st, 2017. At constant structure, Sanofi CHC sales were stable in the second quarter and were impacted by an early start of the Cough and Cold season in Europe in the first quarter of the year. At constant structure, first-half CHC sales increased 2.4% to €2,504 million.

 

In Europe, second-quarter CHC sales were up 44.6% to €308 million. At constant structure, sales decreased 7.8%, following an early Cough and Cold season in the first quarter of 2017. Sales of the Allergy Cough and Cold and Pain products were down 14.5% and 10.3%, respectively. At constant structure, first-half CHC sales in Europe increased 1.6% to €714 million.

 

In the U.S., second-quarter CHC sales increased 24.0% to €293 million. At constant structure, CHC sales were up 2.5% driven by the Pain and Allergy portfolios. In the allergy segment, Sanofi gained market share thanks to the good performance of Allegra® and the launch of Xyzal® Allergy 24HR (approved in February as an over-the-counter treatment for the relief of symptoms associated with seasonal and year-round allergies) in a competitive environment. Second-quarter sales of the Digestive category were down 9.3% reflecting lower Zantac® sales mostly due to retailer delistings of DUO fusionTM. In the U.S., at constant structure, first-half CHC sales increased 2.5% to €641 million.

 

In Emerging Markets, second-quarter CHC sales increased 33.9% to €401 million. At constant structure, CHC sales were up 4.6% reflecting the start of recovery in Russia. In the first half, Emerging Markets CHC sales increased 3.0% to €805 million at constant structure.

 

In the Rest of the World, CHC sales were up 133.3% to €161 million. At constant structure, CHC sales were up 0.6% negatively impacted by lower sales of the Allergy Cough and Cold products in Japan and the Nutritional portfolio in Australia. In the Rest of the World, at constant structure, first-half CHC sales increased 2.8% to €344 million.

 

Generics

 

In the second quarter, Generics sales decreased 8.0% to €442 million reflecting lower sales in Europe (down 7.3% to €190 million), the U.S. (down 28.9% to €32 million) and Emerging Markets (down 9.4% to €189 million). In Emerging Markets, sales were impacted primarily by the divestment of a third party distribution business in China and unfavorable phasing in Latin America. First-half Generics sales decreased 5.0% to €910 million.

Second-quarter Vaccines sales were up 26.2% to €1,016 million and reflected the termination of the Sanofi Pasteur MSD joint-venture in Europe from December 31, 2016. At constant structure, sales were up 19.2% mainly driven by the Polio/Pertussis/Hib franchise and Menactra®. In the U.S., sales were up 12.7% to €378 million. In Emerging Markets, sales grew 22.2% to €414 million. In Europe, sales were up 140.4% to €135 million reflecting the termination of SPMSD JV. At constant structure, European sales which are now fully managed by Sanofi Pasteur, were up 31.7%. First-half Vaccines sales grew 16.5% at constant structure to €1,800 million.

 

In the second quarter, Polio/Pertussis/Hib (PPH) vaccines sales increased 37.2% to €469 million. At constant structure, PPH sales grew 31.4% reflecting increased release of Pentaxim® batches in China and strong performance of Hexaxim® in Europe as well as in some Emerging markets. At constant structure, first-half Polio/Pertussis/Hib vaccines sales increased 34.4% to €901 million.

 

Second-quarter Menactra® sales increased 41.3% to €181 million reflecting the CDC ordering pattern in the U.S., an outbreak in Australia and phasing in the Middle East. First-half Menactra® sales increased 11.8% to €271 million.

 

Influenza vaccines sales were stable (€98 million) in the second quarter and up 14.7% (€136 million) in the first half driven by the South Hemisphere campaign. For the North Hemisphere, first shipment for U.S. Flu season was completed on July 17th and Sanofi Pasteur expects to deliver a similar number of Flu vaccine doses in the U.S. as in 2016.

 

Second-quarter Adult Booster vaccines sales were €115 million, up 11.5% and down 6.5% at constant structure due to the continuing impact of Repevax® supply disruption in Europe. At constant structure, first-half Adult Booster vaccines sales decreased 13.9% to €194 million.

 

Second-quarter Travel and other endemic vaccines sales were €113 million up 10.9% and stable at constant structure.  At constant structure, first-half Travel and other endemic vaccines sales were up 3.8% to €219 million.

 

Second-quarter and first-half Dengvaxia® sales were €1 million and €18 million, respectively.

 

In July, Sanofi announced it will acquire Protein Sciences, a U.S. privately held vaccines biotechnology company. This acquisition will allow Sanofi Pasteur to broaden its flu portfolio with the addition of a non-egg based vaccine. The acquisition, which has been unanimously approved by the board of directors of Protein Sciences and a majority of Protein Sciences shareholders, is expected to close in the third quarter of 2017, subject to customary regulatory approvals.

Second-quarter sales in the U.S. were €2,798 million, a decrease of 1.0% or 2.7% at constant structure impacted by the decline of Diabetes sales (down 23.0%) which was not fully offset by the strong performance of the Multiple Sclerosis franchise (up 25.0%), Vaccines (up 12.7%) as well as the launch of Dupixent®. In the U.S., at constant structure, first-half sales decreased 0.8% to €5,562 million.

 

Second-quarter sales in Emerging Markets were €2,629 million, up 10.2% or 6.6% at constant structure driven by Vaccines (up 22.2%), Established Rx products (up 3.5%) and Diabetes (up 8.4%). In Asia, second quarter sales were up 11.7% (up 10.0% at constant structure) to €934 million reflecting strong performance in China (up 17.1% at constant structure to €550 million), driven by the recovery in Vaccines and growth of Established products. In Latin America, second quarter sales increased 10.1% (up 3.9% at constant structure) to €729 million. Second-quarter sales in Brazil decreased 3.0% at constant structure to €284 million. Second-quarter sales in the Eurasia region increased 17.9% (15.2% at constant structure) to €312 million supported by strong growth in Russia and Turkey. Over the quarter, sales in Russia were €163 million up 33.7% and 25.2% at constant structure driven by CHC sales growth. In Africa and the Middle East, sales were €626 million up 4.7% and 1.4% at constant structure. In Emerging Markets, at constant structure, first-half sales increased 7.5% to €5,172 million.

 

Second-quarter sales in Europe were €2,350 million, up 6.8% or down 1.0% at constant structure impacted by lower Established products (down 6.9% at constant structure) and CHC sales (down 7.8% at constant structure) which were not fully offset by the strong performance of the Multiple Sclerosis franchise (up 35.8%) and Vaccines (up 31.7%). In Europe, at constant structure, first-half sales increased 0.4% to €4,761 million.

 

Sales in Japan increased 10.0% to €472 million in the second quarter. At constant structure, sales in Japan were down 7.5% impacted by generic Plavix® competition which was partially offset by strong growth of Vaccines sales.

R&D update

 

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

 

Regulatory update

 

Regulatory updates since the publication of first-quarter results on April 28, 2017 include the following:

 

  • The European Commission granted marketing authorization for Insulin lispro Sanofi® (100 Units/mL) in July for the treatment of diabetes in adults and children. This followed the European Medicines Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) positive opinion in May.

 

  • In July, the European Medicines Agency's CHMP adopted a positive opinion recommending the granting of the marketing authorization of Dupixent® (dupilumab) for use in adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis who are candidates for systemic therapy.

 

  • In June, the European Commission granted marketing authorization for Kevzara® (sarilumab) in combination with methotrexate for the treatment of moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in adult patients. In May, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also approved Kevzara® for the treatment of adult patients with moderately to severely active RA.

 

At the end of July 2017, the R&D pipeline contained 47 pharmaceutical new molecular entities (excluding Life Cycle Management) and vaccine candidates in clinical development of which 13 are in Phase 3 or have been submitted to the regulatory authorities for approval.

 

Portfolio update

 

Phase 3:

  • In June, positive results from two Phase 3b/4 ODYSSEY-DM trials in patients with diabetes were announced. In the studies, Praluent® (alirocumab), when administered on top of maximally tolerated doses of statins, significantly reduced low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), the primary endpoint of the ODYSSEY DM-INSULIN study, and was superior to usual care in reducing non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C), the primary endpoint of the ODYSSEY DM-DYSLIPIDEMIA study.

 

  • In June, a Phase 3 study evaluating dupilumab in persistent asthma despite the use of medium to high dose of Inhaled Corticosteroid and a LABA (Long-Acting Beta Agonist) was initiated in 6-11 years population. Another Phase 3 evaluating dupilumab in moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in 12-17 years population was initiated in April.

 

  • In May, a Phase 3 study evaluating SAR439684, a PD-1 inhibitor, in 1st line Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer started.

 

Phase 2:

  • In July, Sanofi and Alnylam announced new positive results from the ongoing Phase 2 open-label extension (OLE) study with fitusiran in patients with hemophilia A and B, with or without inhibitors. These results were presented at the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) 2017 Congress. The updated clinical results of this study showed that the safety and tolerability profile of fitusiran remains encouraging, with no thromboembolic events. Based on these results, the companies initiated the Phase 3 ATLAS program for fitusiran in patients with hemophilia A and B with or without inhibitors.

 

  • In July, a Phase 2 study evaluating SAR439684, a PD-1 inhibitor, in advanced Basal Cell Carcinoma started.

 

Phase 1:

  • SAR439459 (anti-TGF-ß) entered into Phase 1 in monotherapy and combination with SAR439684 (PD-1 inhibitor) in patients with advanced solid tumors.

 

2017 Second-quarter and first-half financial results(8)

 

Business Net Income(8)

 

In the second quarter of 2017, Sanofi generated sales of €8,663 million, an increase of 6.4% (up 5.5% at CER). First-half sales were €17,311 million, up 8.7% on a reported basis (up 7.0% at CER).

 

Second-quarter other revenues increased 63.6% (up 61.2% at CER) to €270 million including VaxServe sales of non-Sanofi products of €195 million (versus €89 million in the second quarter of 2016). First-half other revenues increased 67.4% to €519 million of which €368 million were generated by VaxServe (up 108.1% at CER).

 

Second-quarter Gross Profit increased 6.1% to €6,136 million (up 4.9% at CER). At CER and CS*, Gross Profit increased 0.3%. The gross margin ratio decreased 0.2 percentage points to 70.8% versus the second quarter of 2016. The positive impact of the growing Multiple Sclerosis business, Vaccines and China was offset by the negative U.S. Diabetes net price evolution. In the second quarter, the gross margin ratio of Pharmaceuticals was 72.6%, a decrease of 0.5 percentage points and the gross margin ratio of Vaccines improved 5.2 percentage points to 57.5%. First-half Gross Profit increased 9.5% to €12,336 million (up 7.7% at CER and up 2.8% at CER and CS*). In the first half of 2017, the gross margin ratio improved by 0.6 percentage points to 71.3% versus the first half of 2016. Sanofi expects its gross margin ratio to be between 70% and 71% at CER in 2017.

 

Research and Development (R&D) expenses increased 6.2% to €1,358 million (up 5.1% at CER) in the second quarter. At CER and CS*, R&D expenses were up 3.1% reflecting mainly the increased spending on our development programs in immuno-oncology (isatixumab, PD-1) and sotagliflozin. First-half R&D expenses increased 6.1% to €2,667 million (up 4.6% at CER and up 2.6 % at CER and constant structure).

 

Second-quarter selling general and administrative expenses (SG&A) were up 7.1% to €2,568 million (up 6.1% at CER). At CER and CS*, SG&A expenses were down 0.9% mainly reflecting disciplined cost management. General expenses decreased 5.1% at CER and CS*, and Marketing expenses benefited from the reduction of the Diabetes sales and marketing spending in the U.S.  These savings offset launch costs for Dupixent®, Kevzara® and Xyzal® as well as commercial and marketing investments behind key Emerging countries and Vaccines. In the second-quarter, the ratio of SG&A to sales increased 0.2 percentage points to 29.6% compared to the second quarter of 2016. First-half SG&A expenses increased 9.5% to €5,046 million (up 7.7% at CER and up 0.4% at CER and CS*). In the first half of 2017, the ratio of SG&A to sales was 0.2 percentage points higher at 29.1% compared to the same period of 2016.

 

Second-quarter other current operating income net of expenses was €68 million versus -€23 million for the same period of 2016 and included a minor capital gain. First-half other current operating income net of expenses was €102 million versus €70 million in the first half of 2016.

 

The share of profits from associates was €51 million in the second quarter versus €30 million for the same period of 2016. The share of profits from associates included Sanofi's share in Regeneron profit. In the first half, the share of profits from associates was €81 million versus €53 million for the same period of 2016.

 

In the second quarter, non-controlling interests were -€30 million versus -€23 million in the second quarter of 2016. First-half non-controlling interests were -€65 million versus -€50 million for the same period of 2016.

 

Second-quarter business operating income increased 9.8% to €2,299 million. At CER, business operating income increased 8.5%. At CER and CS*, business operating income increased 4.1%. The ratio of business operating income to net sales increased 0.8 percentage points to 26.5% versus the same period of 2016. In the second quarter, the business operating income ratio of Pharmaceuticals was 27.3%, 0.2 percentage points lower and the business operating income ratio of Vaccines increased 8.1 percentage points to 20.0%. First-half business operating income was €4,741 million, up 12.5% (or up 10.1% at CER). At CER and CS*, business operating income increased 5.8%. In the first half of 2017, the ratio of business operating income to net sales increased 0.9 percentage point to 27.4%.

 

Net financial expenses were €60 million in the second quarter versus €74 million in the second quarter of 2016. First-half net financial expenses were €123 million versus €191 million in the first half of 2016.

 

Second-quarter (and first-half) effective tax rate was 24.5% compared to 23.2% in the second quarter of 2016.

 

Second-quarter business net income(9) increased 1.0% to €1,696 million (down 0.5% at CER). The ratio of business net income to net sales increased 0.5 percentage points to 19.6% versus the same period of 2016 (excluding Animal Health business).

 

(8) See Appendix 3 for 2017 second-quarter and first-half consolidated income statement; see Appendix 10 for definitions of financial indicators, and Appendix 4 for reconciliation of IFRS net income reported to business net income.

* Adjusted for BI CHC business and termination of SPMSD and others.

 

First-half business net income increased 2.6% to €3,491 million, (up 0.3% at CER). The ratio of business net income to net sales increased 0.7 percentage points to 20.2% compared to the first half of 2016 (excluding Animal Health business).

 

In the second quarter of 2017, business earnings per share(8) (EPS) increased 3.1% to €1.35 on a reported basis and 1.5% at CER. The average number of shares outstanding was 1,258.2 million in the second quarter of 2017 versus 1,286.8 million in the second quarter of 2016.

In the first half of 2017, business earnings per share(8) was €2.77, up 4.9% on a reported basis and up 2.7% at CER. The average number of shares outstanding was 1,260.3 million in the first half of 2017 versus 1,287.6 million in the first half of 2016.

 

2017 Guidance

 

Sanofi raises full-year 2017 business EPS(8) guidance to broadly stable at CER, barring unforeseen major adverse events. The currency impact on 2017 business EPS is estimated to be approximately +1% at the average June 2017 exchange rates. As announced in the first quarter 2017 financial results, Sanofi previously expected full-year 2017 business EPS to be stable to -3% at CER, barring unforeseen major adverse events.

 

Reconciliation of IFRS net income reported to business net income (see Appendix 4)

 

In the first half of 2017, the IFRS net income was €6,738 million reflecting the acquisition of BI's CHC business and full consolidation of Sanofi's European vaccine operations. The main items excluded from the business net income were:

 

  • A net gain of €4,421 million resulting from the divestment of the Animal Health business.

 

  • An amortization charge of €990 million related to fair value remeasurement on intangible assets of acquired companies (primarily Aventis: €204 million, Genzyme: €458 million and BI CHC business €133 million) and to acquired intangible assets (licenses/products: €71 million). An amortization charge of €487 million related to fair value remeasurement on intangible assets of acquired companies (primarily Aventis: €100 million, Genzyme: €227 million and BI CHC business €67 million), and to acquired intangible assets (licenses/products: €34 million) was recorded in the second quarter. These items have no cash impact on the Company.

 

  • An impairment of intangible assets of €12 million (recorded in the second quarter). This item has no cash impact on the Company.

 

  • A charge of €100 million (of which €64 million in the second quarter) mainly reflecting an increase of Bayer contingent considerations linked to Lemtrada® (charge of €84 million of which €63 million in the second quarter 2017).

 

  • Expenses of €176 million (of which €88 million in the second quarter) arising from the impact of the acquisition of BI CHC business and the European Vaccines business on inventories.

 

  • Restructuring costs and similar items of €364 million (of which €245 million in the second quarter) mainly related to the organizational transformation at the industrial level in Europe and North America.

 

  • A €628 million tax effect arising from the items listed above, comprising €345 million of deferred taxes generated by amortization charged against intangible assets, €126 million associated with restructuring costs and similar items, €56 million associated with the impact of acquisition on inventories and €31 million associated with fair value remeasurement of contingent consideration liabilities. The second quarter tax effect was €380 million, including €163 million of deferred taxes on amortization charged against intangible assets, €83 million associated with restructuring costs and similar items, €28 million associated with the impact of acquisition on inventories, €25 million associated with fair value remeasurement of contingent consideration liabilities (see Appendix 4).  

 

  • A tax of €111 million on dividends paid to shareholders of Sanofi.

 

(8) See Appendix 3 for 2017 second-quarter and first-half consolidated income statement; see Appendix 10 for definitions of financial indicators, and Appendix 4 for reconciliation of IFRS net income reported to business net income.

 

  • An expense of €43 million net of tax (of which €19 million in the second quarter) related to expenses arising from the impact of acquisitions on associates and joint-ventures.

 

Capital Allocation

 

In the first half of 2017, net cash generated by operating activities was €2,299 million after capital expenditures of €688 million and an increase in working capital of €1,185 million. This net cash flow funded acquisitions and partnerships net of disposals (€246 million) and restructuring costs and similar items (€438 million). The swap between BI CHC business and Sanofi Animal Health business generated a net cash flow of €4,349 million, partially used to finance share repurchases (€1,698 million) over the period. As a consequence, net debt decreased from €8,206 million at December 31, 2016 to €7,463 million at June 30, 2017 (amount net of €10,877 million cash and cash equivalents).

These risks and uncertainties include among other things, the uncertainties inherent in research and development, future clinical data and analysis, including post marketing, decisions by regulatory authorities, such as the FDA or the EMA, regarding whether and when to approve any drug, device or biological application that may be filed for any such product candidates as well as their decisions regarding labelling and other matters that could affect the availability or commercial potential of such product candidates, the absence of guarantee that the product candidates if approved will be commercially successful, the future approval and commercial success of therapeutic alternatives, Sanofi's ability to benefit from external growth opportunities and/or obtain regulatory clearances, risks associated with intellectual property and any related pending or future litigation and the  ultimate outcome of such litigation,  trends in exchange rates and prevailing interest rates, volatile economic conditions, the impact of cost containment initiatives and subsequent changes thereto, the average number of shares outstanding as well as those discussed or identified in the public filings with the SEC and the AMF made by Sanofi, including those listed under "Risk Factors" and "Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" in Sanofi's annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2016. Other than as required by applicable law, Sanofi does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information or statements.

Company

"Company" corresponds to Sanofi and its subsidiaries

 

Company sales at constant exchange rates (CER)

When we refer to changes in our 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 net sales for the relevant period at the exchange rates used for the previous period.
