Eli Lilly beats Q3 earnings expectations; revenues miss estimates

Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) surpassed earnings expectations for the third quarter of 2019 but revenues came in shy of estimates. Shares fell over 3% in premarket hours on Wednesday.

Total revenue grew 3% year-over-year to $5.47 billion, but fell short of estimates of $5.5 billion. Revenues grew 4% excluding foreign currency impacts. Revenue growth was driven by an 8% increase in volume.

GAAP net income was $1.25 billion, or $1.37 per share, compared to $1.15 billion, or $1.12 per share, in the prior-year period. Adjusted net income increased 5% to $1.36 billion, while EPS increased 10% to $1.48. Analysts had forecast adjusted EPS of $1.40.  

Revenue in the US remained relatively flat at $3 billion versus the prior-year period due to lower realized prices. Revenues outside the US rose 8% to $2.4 billion, driven by a volume growth of 12% mainly from key growth products like Trulicity, Jardiance and Taltz.

In the third quarter, the company recognized acquired in-process R&D charges of $77.7 million, related to the business development transactions with Centrexion Therapeutics Corporation and AC Immune SA.

During the quarter, Eli Lilly saw double-digit growth in revenues from Trulicity, Taltz, Basaglar, Cyramza and Jardiance. Cialis posted the highest decline in revenues of 61%.
