Johnson & Johnson Reports Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2007 Results

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Johnson & Johnson today announced record sales of $16.0 billion for the fourth quarter of 2007, an increase of 16.6% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2006. Operational growth was 11.9% and currency contributed 4.7%. Domestic sales were up 9.1%, while international sales increased 25.8%, reflecting operational growth of 15.3% and a positive currency impact of 10.5%. Worldwide sales for the year 2007 were $61.1 billion, an increase of 14.6% over 2006. Operational growth was 11.5% with currency contributing 3.1%. On a proforma basis, including the net impact of the acquisition of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare in both periods, worldwide sales increased operationally 4.6% and 4.2% for the fourth-quarter and full-year 2007, respectively.

Net earnings and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2007 were $2.4 billion and $.82 respectively, representing increases of 9.5% and 10.8% respectively, compared to the same period in 2006. Net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2007 included an after-tax, non-cash charge of $441 million for the write-down of the intangible asset related to NATRECOR (nesiritide) and a tax gain of $267 million associated with the restructuring of certain international subsidiaries. Net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2006 included an after-tax charge for in-process research and development of $217 million associated with the acquisition of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. Excluding these special items, 2007 fourth-quarter net earnings were $2.5 billion and earnings per share were $.88, representing increases of 6.8% and 8.6%, respectively, as compared with the same period in 2006. *

Net earnings and diluted earnings per share for the year, as reported, were $10.6 billion and $3.63, decreases of 4.3% and 2.7%, respectively, as compared with 2006. Full-year 2007 net earnings included after-tax charges of $807 million for in-process research and development; $528 million for restructuring; an after-tax, non-cash charge of $441 million for the write- down of the intangible asset related to NATRECOR (nesiritide); and a gain of $267 million for international tax restructuring. Full-year 2006 net earnings included after-tax charges for in-process research and development of $448 million and an after-tax gain of $368 million associated with the termination of the Guidant acquisition agreement. Excluding these special items, net earnings for 2007 were $12.1 billion and earnings per share were $4.15, representing increases of 8.6% and 10.4%, respectively, as compared with the same period in 2006. * The Company announced its earnings guidance for full- year 2008 of $4.39 to $4.44 per share, which excludes the impact of in-process research and development charges or other special items.

"Despite challenges in certain markets, our broad base of businesses allowed us to achieve solid results in 2007, building on our foundation of long-term profitable growth," said William C. Weldon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "It was a year of significant progress in our pipeline; the successful integration of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare; and the creation of new organizational structures focused on future growth."

Worldwide, the Medical Devices and Diagnostics segment achieved annual sales of $21.7 billion in 2007, representing an increase over the prior year of 7.2% with operational growth of 3.9% and a positive currency impact of 3.3%. Domestic sales increased 3.2%, while international sales increased 11.1% (4.6% from operations and 6.5% from currency).

Primary contributors to the operational growth included Vistakon's disposable contact lenses; LifeScan's blood glucose monitoring and insulin delivery products; Ethicon Endo-Surgery's minimally invasive products; DePuy's orthopaedic joint reconstruction and sports medicine businesses; Ortho- Clinical Diagnostics' professional products; and Ethicon's wound care and women's health products. Growth was negatively impacted by lower sales of drug-eluting stents in our Cordis franchise due primarily to a decline in the market versus the prior year.

During the quarter, the Company completed the acquisition of certain assets, including intellectual property rights, related to the treatment of vertebral compression fractures from Disc-O-Tech Medical Technologies, Ltd., a privately-held company, and its subsidiary.

Worldwide Pharmaceutical sales of $24.9 billion for the full-year 2007 represented an increase of 6.9% versus the prior year with operational growth of 4.3% and a positive impact from currency of 2.6%. Domestic sales increased 3.4%, while international sales increased 13.3% (5.9% from operations and 7.4% from currency).

Sales growth reflects the strong performance of RISPERDAL CONSTA and the launch of INVEGA, both antipsychotic medications; TOPAMAX, an antiepileptic and a treatment for the prevention of migraine headaches; REMICADE, a biologic approved for the treatment of a number of immune mediated inflammatory diseases; VELCADE, a treatment for multiple myeloma; CONCERTA, a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; and LEVAQUIN, an anti-infective. Growth was negatively impacted by lower sales of PROCRIT, a product for the treatment of anemia, due to a decline in the market. This market decline is related to labeling changes made during the year and a decision memorandum issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services under its national coverage analysis process.

During the quarter, the Company made significant progress in advancing its pharmaceutical pipeline with several new drug applications submitted for approval to regulatory authorities in the U.S. and Europe. These submissions included:

- Paliperidone palmitate in the U.S. -- a once-monthly atypical antipsychotic intramuscular injection for the treatment of schizophrenia; - Ustekinumab (CNTO 1275) in the U.S. and Europe -- a new, human monoclonal antibody for the treatment of adult patients with chronic moderate to severe plaque psoriasis; - Dapoxetine in Europe for the treatment of premature ejaculation in men 18-64 years of age; - VELCADE in Europe for the treatment of patients with previously untreated multiple myeloma; and - PREZISTA in the U.S. for traditional approval, including an expanded indication for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in antiretroviral treatment-naive adult patients.

In January 2008, the Company received accelerated approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for INTELENCE (etravirine) tablets, an anti-HIV medication. INTELENCE, formerly known as TMC125, is the first non- nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) to show antiviral activity in treatment-experienced adult patients with NNRTI-resistant virus.

The Worldwide Consumer segment achieved annual sales in 2007 of $14.5 billion, an increase of 48.3% over the prior year with operational growth of 44.2% and a positive impact from currency of 4.1%. Domestic sales increased 40.1%, while international sales increased 55.5% (47.8% from operations and 7.7% from currency). On a proforma basis, including the net impact of the acquisition of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare in both periods, worldwide sales for the Consumer segment increased 4.6% operationally.

Sales results reflect the strong performance of LISTERINE antiseptic mouthrinse and the launch of whitening products; Baby and Kids Care products; the skin care lines of AVEENO, CLEAN & CLEAR, and NEUTROGENA; SPLENDA sweetener; ROGAINE hair regrowth treatment; and IMODIUM A-D, an antidiarrheal.

During the quarter, the Company received approval from the FDA for the allergy treatments ZYRTEC (cetirizine HCl) and ZYRTEC-D 12 HOUR (cetirizine HCl 5 mg/pseudoephedrine HCl 120 mg) to be used without a prescription for adults and children.
