PFE shares fell 0.2% immediately following the announcement. The stock has fallen 2.5% since the beginning of this year.
CFO Frank D’Amelio said, “In the first nine months of the year, our Biopharma business grew 7% operationally, despite a COVID-19-related negative impact of approximately 2%, driven by the strong performance of many of our key brands. This performance adds to our confidence in our ability to achieve our expectation of at least a 6% compound annual revenue growth rate through 2025 for New Pfizer.”
