06:19 EDTLLYEli Lilly announces unfavorable court ruling in Altima patent lawsuit
Eli Lilly announced that the English High Court has determined that the vitamin dosage regimen patents for Alimta would not be infringed by a generic competitor that has stated an intent to market certain alternative salt forms of pemetrexed in several European countries upon expiry of the Alimta compound patents in 2015. The decision came in the case of Actavis UK Limited and others v. Eli Lilly. The English court ruled that Alimta's vitamin dosage regimen patent would not be infringed by a generic competitor that had stated its intent to market certain alternative salt forms of pemetrexed in the United Kingdom prior to the U.K. patent's expiration in mid-2021. In addition, the English court granted corresponding declarations of non-infringement regarding Alimta's vitamin dosage regimen patents in France, Italy and Spain. Lilly plans to seek permission to appeal today's ruling to the Court of Appeal. The compound patents for Alimta in major European countries remain in force and are expected to provide exclusivity through 2015. In a parallel infringement case on one of the alternative salt forms of pemetrexed earlier this year, the Regional Court of Dusseldorf in Germany ruled in Lilly's favor regarding infringement of Alimta's vitamin dosage regimen patent under German law. Lilly agrees with the decision in Germany, which is currently under appeal.

14:35 EDTLLYEarnings Watch: Lilly to report Q1 results amid patent expirations
Eli Lilly and Company (LLY) is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the market open on Thursday, April 23 with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. Lilly is a global pharmaceutical manufacturer that also has an animal health business segment. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 77c on revenue of $4.62B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 64c-99c on revenue of $4.54B-$4.7B. LAST QUARTER: Eli Lilly reported fourth quarter EPS of 75c, compared to consensus estimates of 74c, on revenue of $5.12B against estimates of $5.2B. The company said it sees fiscal year 2015 EPS of $3.10-$3.20 on revenue of $19.5B-$20B. Lilly's CEO John Lechleiter commented on the quarter, "While Lilly's fourth quarter 2014 results continue to reflect the impact of patent expirations, we are moving to a period of growth led by diabetes, oncology and animal health. Despite the loss of significant revenue for Cymbalta and Evista following the expiration of our U.S. patents, we saw strong performance from many other products. At the same time, we made excellent progress with our innovation-based strategy, and we continue to advance our pipeline." STREET RESEARCH: On March 25, Suntrust raised its price target on Lilly shares to $95 from $80. After meeting with Eli Lilly's management, SunTrust said it expects the company's oncology and diabetes sales to double over the next five years. The firm is upbeat about the short-term outlook of the company's diabetes treatment, and says that its late stage autoimmune, Alzheimer's and cardiovascular treatments are advancing, while its Alzheimer's programs remain underappreciated. SunTrust said it expects the company's earnings CAGR to be in the mid teens between 2015-2020. It kept a Buy rating on Lilly shares. PRICE ACTION: Lilly shares are relatively flat since the company's last earnings report on January 30, and are trading up fractionally to $72.40 in midday trading ahead of Thursday's earnings release.
