Product Sales Decrease

Given the cyclical nature of historic patterns of Enbrel, Otezla, and Aimovig sales, the lower Q1 2020 sales numbers are to be expected. Benefit plan changes being implemented, insurance reverifications, and increased co-pay expenses are largely to account for the sales of the first quarter historically being lower than for the rest of the year. Total product sales fell by 5% in Q1 2021 compared to the same time period of the previous year. While net selling price suffered by 7%, unit volumes were up by 4%.

AMGN Liquidity Position

With USD$1.9 billion of free cash flow having been generated in Q1 2021, the company’s cash and investments totaled USD$10.6 billion at the end of the quarter. Outstanding debt as of the end of Q1 2021 was USD$32.7 billion. Q1 2020 also saw AMGN repurchase 3.7 million shares of its common stock, with the total transaction costing the company USD$865 million. As of the end of Q1 2021, AMGN reported USD$5.5 billion left as per its stock repurchase authorization.
