Allergan beats estimates on Q1 results, raises full-year guidance

Allergan plc (NYSE: AGN) topped market forecasts on revenue and earnings for the first quarter of 2019. Despite the beat, shares fell 0.5% in premarket hours on Tuesday.

Total revenue decreased 2% year-over-year to $3.60 billion. The company’s core business grew 4.4% year-over-year across its four key therapeutic areas, helped by growth of products such as BOTOX Cosmetic, BOTOX Therapeutic, VRAYLAR, JUVEDERM and Lo LOESTRIN.

In US Specialized Therapeutics, revenues decreased 2.3% year-over-year to $1.54 billion due to lower revenues in CoolSculpting and RESTASIS as well as the divestiture of the Medical Dermatology business, which offset the demand growth in BOTOX and JUVEDERM.

US General Medicine revenues grew 2.1% to $1.25 billion, primarily due to growth in VRAYLAR and Lo LOESTRIN. International revenues grew 1.3% to $801.5 million, due to growth in Facial Aesthetics.
