ough the company’s three operating segments: GIP, GEP, and VOC. Marketing and Customers In the company’s global biopharmaceutical businesses, the company promotes its products to healthcare providers and patients. Through its marketing organizations, the company explains the approved uses, benefits, and risks of its products to healthcare providers, such as doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and the managed care organizations that provide insurance coverage, such as hospitals, integrated delivery systems, pharmacy benefit managers, health plans, employers, and government agencies. The company also markets directly to consumers in the U.S. through direct-to-consumer advertising that communicates the approved uses, benefits, and risks of its products. The company’s prescription pharmaceutical products are sold principally to wholesalers, and it also sells directly to retailers, hospitals, clinics, government agencies, and pharmacies; and in the case of Prevnar 13 in the U.S., the company primarily sells directly to individual provider offices, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and wholesalers. During 2014, the company’s three major biopharmaceutical wholesalers in the U.S. were McKesson, Inc.; Cardinal Health, Inc.; and AmerisourceBergen Corporation, which accounted for 13%, 10%, and 9% of the company’s total revenues, respectively. Sales to these wholesalers were concentrated in the biopharmaceutical businesses. The company’s global Consumer Healthcare business utilizes its own sales and marketing organizations to promote its products, and occasionally uses distributors in smaller markets. Consumer Healthcare products are sold through various channels, including distributors, pharmacies, retail chains, and grocery and convenience stores.
