FLORHAM PARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$ZTS #animalhealthZoetis
Inc
. (NYSE:ZTS) today reported its financial results for the second
quarter of 2016 and increased its revenue and adjusted net income
guidance for full year 2016.

The company reported revenue of $1.2 billion for the second quarter of
2016, an increase of 3% compared with the second quarter of 2015. Net
income for the second quarter of 2016 was $224 million, or $0.45 per
diluted share, compared with a net loss of $37 million for the second
quarter of 2015, on a reported basis.

Adjusted net income1 for the second quarter of 2016 was $246
million, or $0.49 per diluted share, an increase of 14%. Adjusted net
income for the second quarter of 2016 excludes the net impact of $22
million for purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related costs
and certain significant items.

On an operational2 basis, revenue for the second quarter of
2016 increased 6%, excluding the impact of foreign currency. Adjusted
net income for the second quarter of 2016 increased 22% operationally,
excluding the impact of foreign currency.

EXECUTIVE COMMENTARY

“We have continued our positive momentum through the first half of the
year based on the strengths of our diverse portfolio and dedicated
Zoetis colleagues,” said Zoetis Chief Executive Officer Juan Ramón
Alaix. “In the second quarter, we delivered 6% operational revenue
growth, driven by strong sales of our companion animal products and the
positive performance of the U.S. cattle business. We also grew adjusted
net income significantly faster than revenue – 22% operationally – as
cost controls and efficiency improvements are progressing.

“We also continue to reap the benefits of a productive, world-class R&D
organization focused on new discoveries like APOQUEL and SIMPARICA, as
well as lifecycle innovations across our approximately 300 product
lines,” said Alaix. “Our investments in internal R&D and external
business development opportunities have us well-positioned as the world
leader in animal health today and into the future.”

“We’ve made a number of operational efficiency changes over the last
year that have and will negatively impact our reported revenue growth in
2016. However, our go-forward product portfolio and revised
international footprint delivered strong revenue growth in the second
quarter and over the first half of 2016,” said Paul Herendeen, Executive
Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Zoetis. “These efficiency
improvements and our execution of new product launches have us on track
to achieve our updated financial guidance for 2016 and improve our
profitability for the long term.”

QUARTERLY HIGHLIGHTS

Zoetis organizes and manages its business across two regional operating
segments: the United States (U.S.) and International. Within these
segments, the company delivers a diverse portfolio of products for
livestock and companion animals tailored to local trends and customer
needs. In the second quarter of 2016:

  • Revenue in the U.S. segment was $594 million, an increase of
    10% compared with the second quarter of 2015. Sales of companion
    animal products grew 17%, due primarily to increased sales of APOQUEL®
    and several new product launches, including SIMPARICA™.
    Livestock revenue grew 2%, driven by increased sales of our cattle
    products as a result of improving market conditions and expanding herd
    sizes. Livestock revenue growth was partially offset by product
    rationalizations as part of the company’s operational efficiency
    initiative that impacted poultry and swine; swine also
    declined due to increased competition.
  • Revenue in the International segment was $602 million, a
    decrease of 3% on a reported basis and an increase of 2% operationally
    compared with the second quarter of 2015. Sales of companion animal
    products grew 2% on a reported basis and 6% operationally, driven
    primarily by sales of APOQUEL across a variety of markets and growth
    in China, primarily from the company’s vaccines portfolio. Growth in
    companion animal products was partially offset by product
    rationalizations as a result of the company’s operational efficiency
    initiative and business reductions in Venezuela. Sales of livestock
    products decreased 5% on a reported basis and grew 1% operationally,
    primarily from the addition of revenue from PHARMAQ and growth in
    China due to favorable market conditions in the swine market. Poultry
    and cattle products declined primarily due to business reductions in
    Venezuela and India, in addition to product rationalizations as a
    result of the company’s operational efficiency initiative.

Zoetis continues to drive demand and strengthen its diverse portfolio of
products through lifecycle innovations, strong customer relationships
and access to new markets and technologies. The company is focused on
improving the performance and delivery of its current product lines;
expanding product indications across species; pursuing approvals in new
geographies; and developing and marketing innovative medicines,
treatments and solutions for emerging diseases and unmet customer needs.
Some recent highlights include:

  • On the companion animal side, Zoetis strengthened its vaccine
    portfolio, expanding its VERSICAN® Plus
    and VANGUARD® vaccine franchises with new
    approvals in Europe and Canada.

    • VERSICAN Plus, a combination vaccine for dogs containing
      nine vaccine antigens that help protect against ten canine
      diseases, was first approved in the European Union in 2014, and
      this quarter received additional approvals in the United Kingdom,
      Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands for smaller combinations of
      the vaccine. These smaller combinations provide veterinarians with
      further flexibility to tailor their vaccination programs to meet
      the needs of their patients. Additionally, VERSICAN Plus Rabies
      gained approval for a new claim – three years duration of immunity
      – in the European Union.
    • VANGUARD® B Oral and VANGUARD®
      crLyme
      vaccines were approved in Canada. These vaccines, which
      were granted United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)
      licensure in December 2015, help protect against Bordetella
      bronchiseptica
      , a common pathogen in canine infectious
      respiratory disease, and Borrelia burgdorferi, the
      causative agent of Lyme disease in dogs.
  • Zoetis also gained approval in Spain for a livestock variation of its WITNESS®
    diagnostic test kits. This product delivers accurate, fast and clear
    point-of-care results facilitating timely and informed diagnoses of
    intestinal disease in cattle, without disrupting clinical consultation.
  • On the livestock side, the company received approval of a new label
    claim in Europe for DRAXXIN® (tulathromycin)
    and DRAXXIN® 25 (tulathromycin
    injection), one of the company’s largest global product lines, which
    was first introduced in 2005. This injectable anti-infective is an
    effective tool for treating swine respiratory disease, and can now
    also be used to treat respiratory diseases caused by Bordetella
    bronchiseptica
    infections in swine.
  • Zoetis also continues to pursue partnerships that can help broaden and
    strengthen its product portfolio. In May, Zoetis launched SILEO®
    (dexmedetomidine oromucosal gel), the first and only medication
    approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment
    of noise aversion in dogs. SILEO is available from veterinarians by
    prescription and can be safely administered at home by pet owners to
    help calm dogs without sedating them. Zoetis markets and distributes
    SILEO in the U.S. under an exclusive agreement with Orion Corporation,
    Orion Pharma Finland, which developed and manufactures SILEO.

FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

Zoetis’ guidance for the full year 2016 has been increased to reflect
the company’s strong performance in the first half of the year, the
continued strength of its business model, and its confidence in the
outlook for the remainder of the year. The company’s guidance for the
full year 2016 is the following:

  • Revenue of between $4.800 billion to $4.900 billion
  • Reported diluted EPS for the full year of between $1.52 to $1.63 per
    share
  • Adjusted diluted EPS for the full year between $1.86 to $1.93 per share

Additional guidance on other items such as expenses and tax rate is
included in the financial tables and will be discussed on the company’s
conference call this morning. This guidance reflects foreign exchange
rates as of late July.

WEBCAST & CONFERENCE CALL DETAILS

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

adjusted diluted earnings per share and operational results (which

because they provide greater transparency regarding our operating
performance. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this press
release should not be considered alternatives to measurements required
by GAAP, such as net income, operating income, and earnings per share,
and should not be considered measures of liquidity. These non-GAAP
financial measures are unlikely to be comparable with non-GAAP
information provided by other companies. Reconciliation of non-GAAP
financial measures and GAAP financial measures are included in the
tables accompanying this press release and are posted on our website at

(b) Non-GAAP adjusted net income and its components and non-GAAP
adjusted diluted EPS are not, and should not be viewed as,
substitutes for U.S. GAAP net income and its components and diluted
EPS. Despite the importance of these measures to management in goal
setting and performance measurement, non-GAAP adjusted net income
and its components and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS are non-GAAP
financial measures that have no standardized meaning prescribed by
U.S. GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to
investors. Because of the non-standardized definitions, non-GAAP
adjusted net income and its components and non-GAAP adjusted diluted
EPS (unlike U.S. GAAP net income and its components and diluted EPS)
may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of
other companies. Non-GAAP adjusted net income and its components,
and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS are presented solely to permit
investors to more fully understand how management assesses
performance.

negative decision on the excess profits rulings in Belgium. These
net charges relate to the Belgium government’s recovery of prior
