Fourth-quarter and 2017 accounts reflect the acquisition of the former Boehringer Ingelheim Consumer Healthcare (CHC) business and the disposal of the Animal Health business (completed on January 1, 2017). In accordance with IFRS 5 (Non-Current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations), Animal Health results in 2016 and gain on disposal in 2017 are reported separately. Fourth-quarter and 2017 income statements also reflect the consolidation of European operations related to Sanofi vaccine portfolio, following the termination of the Sanofi Pasteur MSD joint venture (SPMSD JV) with Merck at the end of 2016.

Q4 2017 sales reflect strong Dupixent® launch offset by anticipated declines in U.S. diabetes and Renagel®

  • Net sales were €8,691 million, down 2.0% on a reported basis and up 4.1%(3) at CER. At CER/CS(3), net sales were down 1.6%.

  • CHC sales grew 2.5% at CER/CS.
  • Diabetes and Cardiovascular GBU sales down 19.1%.
  • Emerging Markets(4) sales increased 2.1% at CER/CS, driven by Pharmaceuticals which increased 4.0% at CER/CS.

Sanofi Genzyme, Sanofi Pasteur and Emerging Markets sales growth more than offset Diabetes sales decline in 2017

  • Net sales in 2017 were €35,055 million, up 3.6% on a reported basis and 5.6%(2) at CER. Net sales were up 0.5% at CER/CS.

Sanofi meets its full-year 2017 business EPS guidance

  • Q4 2017 business EPS(1) decreased 8.8% at CER to €1.06, including financial impact from Dengvaxia® (-€0.10).
  • 2017 business EPS(1) of €5.54 (-0.4% at CER) and IFRS EPS of €6.71 (+83.3% on a reported basis).
  • Net debt was €5,229 million at the end of 2017, a decrease from €8,206 million at the end of 2016.
  • Board proposes dividend of €3.03, an increase of 2.4%.
  • 2017 business net income (BNI) effective tax rate unaffected by the U.S. tax reform. In 2018, Sanofi expects the BNI effective tax rate to be around 22% primarily as a result of U.S. tax reform(5).

Sanofi progresses on its strategic priorities

  • Sanofi to acquire Bioverativ(6) for $11.6 billion to expand in specialty care and strengthen its leadership in rare diseases.
  • Sanofi to acquire Ablynx(6) for €3.9 billion to strengthen its R&D strategy with innovative Nanobody® technology platform.
  • Agreement signed with Regeneron to accelerate and expand investments for the development of cemiplimab and dupilumab.
  • FDA supplemental BLA submission for dupilumab in uncontrolled persistent asthma for adults and adolescents.

2018 financial outlook

  • Sanofi expects 2018 business EPS(1) to grow between 2% and 5%(7) at CER, including the anticipated contribution from the recently announced acquisitions, barring unforeseen major adverse events. Applying the average December 2017 exchange rates, the currency impact on 2018 business EPS is estimated to be -3% to -4%.
Sanofi Chief Executive Officer, Olivier Brandicourt, commented:
"In 2017, we continued to execute on our strategic goals with the strong launch of Dupixent®, the positive pivotal data for cemiplimab and for dupilumab in asthma. At the same time, we managed the challenges in U.S. diabetes as well as the impact from sevelamer generics and Dengvaxia®. Recently, we announced a series of strategic steps - we are obtaining the global rights to fitusiran and plan to acquire Bioverativ and Ablynx - which will establish Sanofi as a new global leader in rare blood disorders. Additionally, these actions will further strengthen our pipeline and provide us with the powerful new Nanobody® technology platform. Overall, after a period of significant reshaping since 2015, we are positioned to drive growth in 2018."

New segmentation

During 2017, Sanofi has progressively integrated the Consumer Healthcare operations of Boehringer Ingelheim, acquired on January 1, 2017. Following the completion of the integration process and effective December 31, 2017, the CHC business formed a distinct operating segment. Additionally, Sanofi achieved the realignment of its management reporting in accordance with its revised organizational structure in 2017. As a result, the costs of the global functions (Medical Affairs, External Affairs, Finance, Human Resources, Legal Affairs, Information Solutions & Technologies, Sanofi Business Services, etc.) will be included in "Other", as reconciling items to Group numbers. However, comparative information for the previous year will not be restated to reflect the changes described above because the necessary information is not available and would be too complex to develop. The Q1 2018 earnings press release will be based on this new segmentation. Sanofi's Annual report Form 20-F and Document de Référence will contain the information for the year 2017 on both the old basis (with comparative earlier periods) and the segmentation principles.

2018 adoption of IFRS15 and IFRS9

Based on the current assessment, Sanofi does not expect a material revenue recognition change under the new IFRS15 revenue standard which becomes effective in 2018. Sanofi will provide restated figures in the preview document related to Q1 2018. In addition, the Group does not anticipate a material restatement of 2017 Business EPS from the adoption of IFRS9, the new IFRS standard for financial instruments, also effective in 2018.

2017 fourth-quarter and full-year Sanofi sales

Unless otherwise indicated, all percentage changes in sales in this press release are stated at CER(8).

In the fourth quarter of 2017, Company sales were €8,691 million, down 2.0% on a reported basis. Exchange rate movements had a negative effect of 6.1 percentage points mainly driven by the movement of the U.S. Dollar accompanied by the Japanese Yen, Turkish Lira and Chinese Yuan. Company sales benefited from the acquisition of Boehringer Ingelheim's CHC business and full consolidation of Sanofi's European vaccines operations leading to an increase of 4.1% at CER. At CER and CS, Company sales were down 1.6%.

2017 Company sales reached €35,055 million, up 3.6% on a reported basis. Exchange rate movements had a negative effect of 2.0 percentage points. At CER and CS, Company sales were up 0.5%.

In Europe, Sanofi glargine sales increased 2.5% to €246 million due to the Toujeo® strong performance despite biosimilar glargine competition in several European markets. Full-year 2017 Sanofi glargine sales decreased 13.0% to €5,438 million.

In the fourth quarter, Lantus® sales were €1,076 million, down 20.9%. In the U.S., Lantus® sales decreased 31.4% to €584 million mainly reflecting lower average net price, the aforementioned impact of formulary exclusions as well as a high basis of comparison in the fourth quarter of 2016. In Europe, fourth-quarter Lantus® sales were €183 million (down 7.5%) due to biosimilar glargine competition and patients switching to Toujeo®.

*CS: constant structure

In the fourth quarter, Consumer Healthcare (CHC) sales increased 51.8% to €1,196 million reflecting the closing of the acquisition of Boehringer Ingelheim CHC business on January 1, 2017. At CS, Sanofi CHC sales increased 2.5% in the fourth quarter, driven by Europe (up 5.7% to €387 million) and the U.S. (up 3.8% to €251 million) which offset the slight decline in Emerging Markets (down 0.5% to €400 million). At CS, full-year 2017 CHC sales increased 2.1% to €4,832 million.

In Europe, fourth-quarter CHC sales were up 69.0% to €387 million. At CS, sales increased 5.7% mainly driven by Doliprane® and Mucosolvan®, reflecting an unusual spike in demand at the end of the year, earlier than in previous seasons. At CS, full-year 2017 CHC sales in Europe increased 2.0% to €1,422 million.

In the U.S., fourth-quarter CHC sales increased 31.1% to €251 million. At CS, CHC sales were up 3.8% reflecting strong performance of allergy franchise as well as Gold Bond®. Fourth-quarter Xyzal® Allergy 24HR sales (approved in February) were €7 million. Fourth-quarter sales of the Digestive category were down 16.4%, reflecting lower Zantac® sales. At CS, full-year 2017 CHC sales increased 1.3% to €1,133 million.

In Emerging Markets, fourth-quarter CHC sales increased 32.8% to €400 million. At CS, CHC sales were down 0.5% reflecting lower sales in Russia and Mexico. Full-year 2017 Emerging Markets CHC sales increased 3.0% to €1,616 million at CS.

Generics

In the fourth quarter, Generics sales decreased 2.1% to €435 million reflecting lower sales in Europe (down 1.6% to €189 million) and in Emerging Markets (down 4.3% to €183 million).

Fourth-quarter Vaccines sales were up 8.7% to €1,385 million and reflected the termination of the Sanofi Pasteur MSD joint venture in Europe from December 31, 2016. At CS, sales were up 1.2%. In Europe, sales were up 347.7% to €196 million and up 37.8% at CS driven by Polio/Pertussis/Hib, Boosters and Flu franchises. This strong performance offset lower sales in Emerging Markets (down 6.1% to €471 million), as a result of a phasing effect of Hexaxim® sales and the buy back of unused doses of Dengvavia® following the announced label update in November. In the U.S. (down 0.4% to €642 million) sales were impacted by decreased sales of Polio/Pertussis/Hib and Boosters vaccines. Full-year 2017 Vaccines sales grew 8.3% at CS to €5,101 million.

In the fourth quarter, Polio/Pertussis/Hib (PPH) vaccines sales decreased 3.9% to €493 million. At CS, PPH sales were down 9.8%. In the U.S., PPH franchise sales decreased 27.1% reflecting the high sales level in the fourth quarter of 2016 which benefited from a stock replenishment effect on Pentacel®. The strong performance of Hexaxim® in Europe and Pentaxim® in China offset lower sales of the Pediatric AcXim combination family in Emerging Markets mainly reflecting the timing of public tenders. In China, Sanofi Pasteur expects supply of Pentaxim® to be constrained in the first half of 2018 due to a testing issue which, together with the high base for comparison on Menactra®, is expected to result in lower overall Vaccines GBU sales over this time period. At CS, full-year 2017 Polio/Pertussis/Hib vaccines sales increased 15.3% to €1,827 million.

 (9) Following completion of the dialogue with social partners

Fourth-quarter Influenza vaccines sales increased 28.4% to €502 million and 20.5% at CS. This was driven by a strong performance in the U.S. (up 25.4%) reflecting €43 million of pandemic flu vaccines sales to BARDA (Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority) and by the success of VaxigripTetraTM in Europe (flu vaccines sales were up 45.5% in Europe). Full-year 2017 Influenza vaccines sales were €1,589 million, up 8.2% at CS.
Fourth-quarter Menactra® sales decreased 19.6% to €79 million due to lower sales in the U.S., reflecting the phasing effect from CDC (Centers for Disease Control) orders. Full-year 2017 Menactra® sales were up 4.6% to €600 million.

Fourth-quarter Adult Booster vaccines sales were €137 million, up 13.2% and down 0.7% at CS reflecting lower Adacel® sales in the U.S despite improved supply of Repevax® in Europe. At CS, full-year 2017 Adult Booster vaccines sales were broadly stable at €474 million.

Fourth-quarter Travel and other endemic vaccines sales were €160 million up 55.1% (up 33.9% at CS) reflecting improved supply of Rabies and Hepatitis A vaccines. At CS, full-year 2017 Travel and other endemic vaccines sales were up 19.0% to €493 million.

On November 29, 2017, Sanofi announced that it will ask health authorities to update information provided to physicians and patients on its dengue vaccine Dengvaxia® in countries where it is approved. The request was based on a new analysis of long-term clinical trial data, which found differences in vaccine performance based on prior dengue infection.
Fourth-quarter Dengvaxia® sales were -€19 million reflecting the buy back of unused doses. Full-year 2017 Dengvaxia® sales were €3 million.

Regulatory update

Regulatory updates since December 13, 2017 include the following:

  • In January, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) in Japan granted marketing and manufacturing authorization for Dupixent® for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in adults not adequately controlled with existing therapies.
     
  • In December, a marketing authorization application for patisiran (partnership with Alnylam), an investigational RNAi therapeutic targeting transthyretin for the treatment of adults with hereditary transthyretin-mediated amyloidosis, was submitted by Alnylam to the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
     
  • In December a supplemental biologics license application for dupilumab (partnership with Regeneron) was submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for uncontrolled, persistent asthma for patients aged 12 and over.

At the beginning of February 2018, the R&D pipeline contained 70 projects including 36 new molecular entities and novel vaccines in clinical development. 25 projects are in Phase 3 or have been submitted to the regulatory authorities for approval.

Portfolio update

Phase 3:

  • At the end of 2017, the phase 3 program evaluating efpeglenatide (partnership with Hanmi), a weekly GLP-1 agonist, in type 2 diabetes was initiated.
     
  • In December 2017, the FDA lifted the hold on clinical studies with fitusiran (an investigational RNAi therapeutic targeting antithrombin for the treatment of patients with hemophilia A and B; partnership with Alnylam), including the Phase 2 open-label extension (OLE) study and the ATLAS Phase 3 program.

Phase 1:

  • In November 2017, Sanofi announced that Principia will grant Sanofi an exclusive, worldwide license to develop and commercialize SAR442168/PRN2246. This is a low dose covalent BTK inhibitor which crosses the blood brain barrier. Recently a Phase 1 clinical trial in healthy volunteers was initiated in multiple sclerosis.

Alliances/Collaboration

  • In January, 2018, Sanofi and Alnylam announced a strategic restructuring of their RNAi therapeutics alliance to streamline and optimize development and commercialization of certain products for the treatment of rare genetic diseases. Specifically:
     
    • Sanofi will obtain global development and commercialization rights to fitusiran, an investigational RNAi therapeutic, currently in development for the treatment of people with hemophilia A and B.
       
    • Alnylam will obtain global development and commercialization rights to its investigational RNAi therapeutics programs for the treatment of ATTR amyloidosis, including patisiran and ALN-TTRsc02.
       
  • Sanofi recently signed a clinical collaboration agreement with Roche to explore the role of atezolizumab in combination with isatuximab in certain solid tumors, reflecting scientific evidence that checkpoint inhibition by CD38 may reverse resistance to PD-L1.

2017 fourth-quarter and full-year 2017 financial results(10)

Business Net Income(10)
In the fourth quarter of 2017, Sanofi generated net sales of €8,691 million, a decrease of 2.0% (up 4.1% at CER). Full-year 2017 net sales were €35,055 million, up 3.6% on a reported basis (up 5.6% at CER).

Fourth-quarter other revenues decreased 6.5% (up 1.6% at CER) to €290 million, reflecting VaxServe sales contribution of non-Sanofi products of €223 million (up 10.0% at CER). In 2017, other revenues increased 29.5% (up 32.9% at CER) to €1,149 million, reflecting VaxServe sales contribution of €859 million (up 51.8% at CER).

The gross margin ratio was 67.7% versus 70.2% in the fourth quarter of 2016. The positive gross margin impact of multiple sclerosis franchise, Dupixent® and China was more than offset by the negative U.S. Diabetes net price evolution, the impact of the Dengvagia®, lower sales of Pentacel® and Renagel® and currency variations. In the fourth quarter, the gross margin ratio of Pharmaceuticals was 70.1%, a decrease of 1.6 percentage points and the gross margin ratio of Vaccines was 54.9%, a decrease of 6.7 percentage points. In 2017, the gross margin ratio was 70.6%, a decrease of 0.4 percentage points.

In the fourth quarter, non-controlling interests were -€30 million versus -€32 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. In 2017, non-controlling interests were -€125 million versus -€113 million in 2016.

Fourth-quarter business operating income decreased 20.4% to €1,691 million. At CER, business operating income decreased 14.0%. At CER and CS*, business operating income decreased 18.5%, and 11.4% excluding the €158 million impact linked to Dengvaxia®. The ratio of business operating income to net sales decreased 4.5 percentage points to 19.5% versus 2016. In the fourth quarter, the business operating income ratio of Pharmaceuticals was 20.3%, 2 percentage points lower and the business operating income ratio of Vaccines was 16.8%, 18.9 percentage points lower. Full-year 2017 business operating income increased 0.6% (or up 3.0% at CER) to €9,343 million. At CER and CS*, business operating income decreased 1.1%. In 2017, the ratio of business operating income to net sales decreased 0.8 percentage points to 26.7%.

Net financial expenses were €73 million in the fourth quarter versus €125 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Full-year 2017 net financial expenses were €273 million versus €399 million in 2016.

The fourth-quarter effective tax rate was 18.6% compared to 24.0% in the fourth quarter of 2016 reflecting variances in the geographic profile mix. The full-year 2017 effective tax rate was 23.5% compared to 23.3% in 2016. Taken into account an estimated net positive impact from the recent U.S. tax reform and reduction of tax rates in various countries, Sanofi expects that the 2018 effective tax rate should be around 22%.

Fourth-quarter business net income(10) decreased 17.1% to €1,332 million (down 10.8% at CER). The ratio of business net income to net sales decreased 1.9 percentage points to 15.3% versus 2016 (excluding Animal Health business). Full-year 2017 business net income decreased 4.7% to €6,964 million (down 2.6% at CER).
(10) See Appendix 3 for 2017 fourth-quarter and 2017 consolidated income statement; see Appendix 10 for definitions of financial indicators, and Appendix 4 for reconciliation of IFRS net income reported to business net income.
* Adjusted for BI CHC business and termination of SPMSD and others.

The ratio of business net income to net sales decreased 0.3 percentage points to 19.9% compared to 2016 (excluding Animal Health business).

In the fourth quarter of 2017, business earnings per share(10) (EPS) decreased 15.2% to €1.06 on a reported basis and 8.8% at CER. The average number of shares outstanding was 1,252.9 million versus 1,282.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

In 2017, business earnings per share(10) was €5.54, down 2.5% on a reported basis and down 0.4% at CER. The average number of shares outstanding was 1,256.9 million versus 1,286.6 million in 2016.

2018 Guidance

Sanofi expects 2018 Business EPS to grow between 2% and 5% at CER, including the anticipated contribution from the recently announced acquisitions, barring unforeseen major adverse events. Applying the average December 2017 exchange rates, the currency impact on 2018 Business EPS is estimated to be -3% to -4%.

Dividend

The Board of Directors convened on February 6, 2018, and proposed a dividend of €3.03 per share.

(10) See Appendix 3 for 2017 fourth-quarter and 2017 consolidated income statement; see Appendix 10 for definitions of financial indicators, and Appendix 4 for reconciliation of IFRS net income reported to business net income.

  • A charge of €742 million was recorded in 2017 of which €631 million recorded in the fourth quarter mainly reflecting:
    • A charge of €1,193 million associated with consequences of the U.S. tax reform, notably repatriation cost of foreign earnings estimated at €1,084 million to be paid over the next 8 years and a charge of €109 million due to, on the one hand, reevaluation of deferred taxes following Corporate tax rate reduction and, on the other hand, adjustment to the deferred taxes on the fair value of investments in affiliates(11).

Capital Allocation

In 2017, net cash generated by operating activities was €6,715 million after capital expenditures of €1,500 million and an increase in working capital of €589 million. This net cash flow funded acquisitions and partnerships net of disposals (€1,053 million), restructuring costs and similar items (€754 million) and the dividend paid by Sanofi (€3,710 million). The swap between BI CHC business and Sanofi Animal Health business generated a net cash flow of €3,535 million, partially used to finance share repurchases (€2,158 million) over the period. Net debt decreased from €8,206 million at December 31, 2016 to €5,229 million at December 31, 2017 (amount net of €10,315 million cash and cash equivalents).

 (11) The U.S. Tax reform impacts are preliminary based on the Company's initial analysis of the 2017 Act. The final impact may differ and will be adjusted accordingly during 2018, due to, among other things, changes in the Company's interpretations and assumptions as well as additional guidance from the U.S. legislators, the U.S.Internal Revenue Services, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or the Financial Accounting Standards Board.

Appendix 10: Definitions of non-GAAP financial indicators

Company


"Company" corresponds to Sanofi and its subsidiaries

Company sales at constant exchange rates (CER)

When we refer to changes in our net sales "at constant exchange rates" (CER), this means that we exclude the effect of changes in exchange rates.

We eliminate the effect of exchange rates by recalculating net sales for the relevant period at the exchange rates used for the previous period.

Reconciliation of net sales to Company sales at constant exchange rates for the fourth quarter and full-year 2017

€ million Q4 2017 2017
Net sales 8,691 35,055
Effect of exchange rates (539) (672)
Company sales at constant exchange rates 9,230 35,727

Business net income

Sanofi publishes a key non-GAAP indicator.
Business net income is defined as net income attributable to equity holders of Sanofi excluding:

  • amortization of intangible assets,
  • impairment of intangible assets,
  • fair value remeasurement of contingent consideration related to business combinations or to disposals,
  • other impacts associated with acquisitions (including impacts of acquisitions on associates and joint ventures),
  • restructuring costs and similar items(1),
  • other gains and losses (including gains and losses on disposals of non-current assets(1)),
  • costs or provisions associated with litigation(1),
  • tax effects related to the items listed above as well as effects of major tax disputes,
  • tax (3%) on dividends paid to Sanofi shareholders,
  • the effects of the application of (and transactions related to) US tax reforms, and the consequences of the French Constitutional Council ruling of October 6, 2017 on the additional 3% levy on dividends paid out in cash,
  • Impairments loss on Alnylam investment for the difference between the market value based on the stock price as of December 31, 2016 and historical cost,
  • Animal Health items out of business net income(2),
  • Net income attributable to non-controlling interests related to the items listed above,
  • Other items relating to the Sanofi Pasteur MSD joint venture.

(1)      Reported in the line items Restructuring costs and similar items and Gains and losses on disposals, and litigation, which are defined in Note B.20. to our consolidated financial statements.
(2)      In 2016, impact of discontinuation of depreciation and impairment of Property, Plant and Equipment starting at IFRS 5 application (non-current assets held for sales and discontinued operations), amortization and impairment of intangible assets until IFRS 5 application and costs incurred as a result of the divestment as well as tax effect of these items; and in 2017 gain on the disposal of the Animal Health business, net of tax.
