Novo Nordisk Announces Earnings Results for the First Quarter of 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

Novo Nordisk announced sales results for the first quarter of 2015. For the quarter, the net sales were DKK 25,200 million against DKK 20,343 million last year. Operating profit increased by 73% in Danish kroner and by 47% in local currencies to DKK 13,857 million against DKK 8,033 million last year. Adjusted for the DKK 2.4 billion non-recurring income related to the partial divestment of NNIT, operating profit in local currencies increased by 17%. Profit before income taxes was DKK 12,485 million against DKK 8,301 million last year. Net profit increased by 53% to DKK 9,876 million against DKK 6,458 million last year. Diluted earnings per share increased by 56% to DKK 3.79 against DKK 2.43 last year. Adjusted for the partial divestment of NNIT, net profit and diluted earnings per share increased by 22% and 24% respectively. Net cash generated from operating activities was DKK 4,106 million compared with DKK 4,069 million in 2014. Net capital expenditure for property, plant and equipment was DKK 764 million compared with DKK 693 million in 2014. Net capital expenditure was primarily related to investments in additional insulin filling capacity, construction of new research facilities and an expansion of the manufacturing capacity for biopharmaceutical products. Purchase of intangible assets and other financial assets was DKK 30 million compared with DKK 104 million in 2014. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was DKK 767 million compared with DKK 697 million in 2014. Free cash flow was DKK 5,643 million compared with DKK 3,272 million in 2014. The increase of 72% compared with 2014 primarily reflects the non-recurring proceeds from the initial public offering of NNIT. The company has slightly revised it's forecast for 2015. The company now forecasts sales growth of around 7% to 9% in local currencies, up from 6% to 9%, whereas operating profit growth measured in local currencies is expected to be around 17%, up from 10%. This increase has been attributed to what the company sees as strong potential sales of its modern insulin, Victoza, and Tresiba products. The company suggests that it may report losses of around DKK 6 billion for the year, this is up from earlier forecasts of DKK 5 billion. Effective tax rate is expected to be around 21%, down from the previous guidance of 22%. The effective tax rate for 2015 reflected the non- recurring tax exempt income from the partial divestment of NNIT. Capital expenditure is expected to be around DKK 5 million, as the same of the previous guidance, primarily related to investments in an expansion of the manufacturing capacity for biopharmaceutical products, additional capacity for insulin active pharmaceutical ingredient production, construction of new research facilities and an expansion of the insulin filling capacity. Depreciation, amortization and impairment losses are expected to be around DKK 3 million, as the same with that of the previous guidance. Free cash flow is expected to be around DKK 32 million to DKK 34 million against the previous guidance of DKK 29 million to DKK 31 million.
