06:35 EDTLLYEli Lilly still sees FY14 adjusted EPS $2.72-$2.80, consensus $2.81
Now sees FY14 reported EPS $2.70-$2.78. Sees FY14 revenue $19.4B-$20B, consensus $19.75B. . As described in the company's initial guidance, patent expirations are expected to drive a rapid and severe decline in U.S. Cymbalta and U.S. Evista sales. These revenue declines are expected to be partially offset by growth from a portfolio of other products including Humalog, TrajentaŽ, Cialis, Forteo and Alimta, as well as the animal health business. In addition, strong revenue growth is expected in China, while a weaker Japanese yen will dampen revenue growth in Japan.The company now anticipates that gross margin as a percent of revenue will be approximately 73% in 2014. Total operating expenses in 2014 are expected to decrease substantially compared to 2013. The 2014 tax rate is now expected to be approximately 19%, assuming a full-year 2014 benefit of the R&D tax credit and other tax provisions up for extension. If these items are not extended, the 2014 tax rate would be approximately 2 percentage points higher. The company now expects 2014 net income to be at least $2.9B and still expects operating cash flow to be at least $4B. Operating cash flows are still expected to be sufficient to pay the company's dividend of approximately $2.1B, allow for capital expenditures of approximately $1.3B, and fund certain business development activity and share repurchases. The company's 2014 financial guidance assumes that the acquisition of Novartis Animal Health does not close during this calendar year. Should the acquisition close during 2014, the company will revise its 2014 financial guidance, if necessary.

07:05 EDTLLYEli Lilly and Immunocore partner to develop cancel therapies
Eli Lilly and Immunocore today announced they have entered into a co-discovery and co-development collaboration to research and potentially develop novel T cell-based cancer therapies. Immunocore will receive an upfront fee of $15M per program for the discovery of novel ImmTACs against jointly-selected cancer targets in order to generate preclinical candidate packages. If Lilly accepts a preclinical candidate package to develop and potentially commercialize, Immunocore will receive an opt-in fee of $10M and will have an option to continue co-development with Lilly on a cost-sharing and profit-sharing basis. If Immunocore does not exercise its option, it will be entitled to potential future significant milestone and royalty payments.

07:35 EDTLLYPerrigo potential buyers list could be limited, says Jefferies
After Globes reported that Perrigo retained an investment bank to assist with a potential merger, Jefferies says the list of potential buyers could be limited since the store brand business is fundamentally a high volume, lower margin model. The firm notes U.S. companies that currently do not have large over-the-counter divisions include Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) and Merck (MRK). Jefferies views the merger speculation surrounding Perrigo as not surprising given the company's strong long-term fundamentals and attractive Irish domicile. It has a Buy rating on the stock with a $160 price target.
05:47 EDTLLYEli Lilly announces results from five datasets from Alzheimer's disease study
Eli Lilly announced results from an analyses of five datasets evaluating the relationship between cognitive and functional impairment in patients with mild Alzheimer's disease in the natural course of the disease. Analysis findings demonstrate that cognitive deficits predict subsequent functional deficits and suggest that cognitive decline experienced by patients is followed by an observable related decline in function, consistent with previously proposed hypotheses. These data were presented today at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark as part of the featured research session, "Statistics in the Race against Alzheimer's Disease." Hong Liu-Seifert, Ph.D., study research advisor at Eli Lilly stated, "These data support the concept that decline in cognition is later reflected in changes in function. This suggests that with treatments that target the underlying neuropathology of disease, effects on function may take longer to observe in clinical studies. Currently available scales were not developed to assess subtle functional changes or treatment effects on these deficits in patients with early or mild Alzheimer's disease, and there is debate as to how much variability exists in these scales globally. Therefore, we support discussion of alternative ways to demonstrate clinical meaningfulness in early or mild Alzheimer's disease."
