Recent Events

AbbVie and Allergan plc announced that the companies have entered into a definitive transaction agreement under which AbbVie will acquire Allergan in a cash and stock transaction for a transaction equity value of approximately $63 billion. The proposed acquisition is transformational for both companies and provides immediate scale, diversity and profitability to AbbVie’s growth platform; enhances long-term R&D investment and sustained focus on innovative science; and increases global commercial scale to further maximize the value of Allergan’s portfolio. The combined company will produce robust cash flow to support continued dividend growth and reduction of debt levels. Additional information on the transaction can be found at www.abbvie.com/abbvie-allergan.html

AbbVie announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Commission (EC) approvals of SKYRIZI (risankizumab) for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in adult patients who are candidates for systemic therapy. The approvals are based on results from four pivotal Phase 3 studies, ultIMMa-1, ultIMMa-2, IMMvent and IMMhance evaluating more than 2,000 patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. SKYRIZI is part of a collaboration between Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) and AbbVie, with AbbVie leading development and commercialization globally.

At the World Congress of Dermatology, AbbVie presented new two-year data showing SKYRIZI patients with moderate to severe psoriasis maintained complete skin clearance. Longer-term results from the Phase 3 IMMhance study showed 73 percent and 72 percent of patients treated with continuous SKYRIZI experienced complete skin clearance (defined as static Physician Global Assessment (sPGA) 0 and Psoriasis Area and Severity Index 100, respectively) at week 94, among patients who achieved a sPGA 0/1 at week 28. No new safety findings were observed at two years.

At the European Congress of Rheumatology, AbbVie presented new long-term data from upadacitinib Phase 3 studies SELECT-EARLY and SELECT-COMPARE showing a significantly higher proportion of patients with rheumatoid arthritis treated with upadacitinib monotherapy or in combination with methotrexate (MTX) maintained clinical remission compared with MTX or adalimumab plus MTX, respectively, at 48 weeks. Additionally, findings from an integrated safety analysis across five studies in the SELECT Phase 3 clinical program support the well-characterized safety profile of upadacitinib in patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis.

AbbVie announced FDA approval for VENCLEXTA (venetoclax) in combination with obinutuzumab as a chemotherapy-free combination regimen for previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) patients. The FDA reviewed the submission under the Real-Time Oncology Review pilot program and approval was based on data from the Phase 3 CLL14 trial evaluating VENCLEXTA in combination with obinutuzumab compared to patients who received chlorambucil plus obinutuzumab. This is the fourth approval and the fifth Breakthrough Therapy designation for VENCLEXTA. Venetoclax is being developed by AbbVie and Roche and is jointly commercialized by AbbVie and Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, in the U.S. and by AbbVie outside of the U.S.

At the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting and European Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Congress, AbbVie presented over forty abstracts including results from the Phase 3 CLL14 trial of VENCLEXTA plus obinutuzumab in previously untreated CLL patients, results from the Phase 3 BELLINI trial of VENCLEXTA plus bortezomib and dexamethasone in patients with relapsed/refractory (r/r) multiple myeloma (MM) and results from the Phase 3 CLL12 trial of IMBRUVICA (ibrutinib) in the asymptomatic watch and wait population of CLL. AbbVie also presented new IMBRUVICA six-year and five-year data from the Phase 3 RESONATE and RESONATE-2 trials, respectively, evaluating its long-term safety and efficacy benefit in CLL/SLL patients. IMBRUVICA is jointly developed and commercialized with Janssen Biotech, Inc.

Recent Events (continued)

AbbVie announced the FDA lifted the partial clinical hold placed on CANOVA, a Phase 3 trial evaluating VENCLEXTA for the investigational treatment of r/r MM. The CANOVA trial evaluates VENCLEXTA in combination with dexamethasone versus pomalidomide in combination with dexamethasone in patients with r/r MM positive for the translocation (11;14) abnormality. The partial clinical hold removal is based upon agreement on revisions to the CANOVA study protocol, including new risk mitigation measures, protocol-specified guidelines and updated futility criteria. The t(11;14) genetic biomarker is among the most common and routinely tested genetic abnormalities in patients with MM.

AbbVie provided an update on the depatuxizumab mafodotin (Depatux-M) glioblastoma program, announcing that the Phase 3 INTELLANCE-1 study did not meet its primary endpoint of overall survival at the interim analysis and demonstrated no survival benefit for newly diagnosed patients receiving Depatux-M. The Independent Data Monitoring Committee responsible for interim analysis data review recommended stopping the study due to lack of survival benefit for patients receiving Depatux-M and enrollment in all ongoing Depatux-M studies has been halted. Results will be submitted for presentation at a medical conference and for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

At the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting, AbbVie presented six abstracts, including two oral presentations showing AbbVie’s research progress in difficult to treat neurological conditions. Investigators presented pharmacokinetics and safety/tolerability data on ABBV-951, a levodopa/carbidopa prodrug, delivering a 24-hour continuous, subcutaneous infusion under investigation for the treatment for advanced Parkinson's disease. Investigators also presented data from a Phase 1, multiple-dose study of elezanumab in patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis.

AbbVie announced that it has resolved U.S. HUMIRA (adalimumab) litigation with BI. Under the terms of the resolution, AbbVie will grant BI a non-exclusive license to its HUMIRA-related intellectual property in the United States. The U.S. license for BI will begin on July 1, 2023. BI will pay royalties to AbbVie for licensing its HUMIRA patents and acknowledges the validity and enforceability of the licensed patents. AbbVie will make no payments of any form to BI.

AbbVie announced the acquisition of Mavupharma, a privately held biopharmaceutical company focused on novel approaches to target the STING (STimulator of INterferon Genes) pathway for the treatment of cancer. STING pathway signaling plays an important role in the generation of an immune response directed at tumors, and enhancing STING signaling has shown promise in a variety of tumor models. STING pathway stimulation has the potential to increase the susceptibility of tumors and broaden treatment options for patients. The collaboration broadens AbbVie's oncology research platform to expand the development of potentially life-changing treatments for patients.

Full-Year 2019 Outlook
 
AbbVie is updating its GAAP diluted EPS guidance for the full-year 2019 from $7.26 to $7.36 to $5.69 to $5.79, representing growth of 56.8 percent at the midpoint, inclusive of a non-cash charge for SKYRIZI contingent consideration following regulatory approvals in the second quarter. AbbVie is raising its previously announced adjusted EPS guidance range for the full-year 2019 from $8.73 to $8.83 to $8.82 to $8.92, representing growth of 12.1 percent at the midpoint. The company's 2019 adjusted diluted EPS guidance excludes $3.13 per share of intangible asset amortization expense, non-cash charges for contingent consideration adjustments and other specified items.
