10:35 EDTTEVATeva sees 2013 EPS, sales below estimates but long-term cost savings
Teva Pharmaceutical (TEVA) this morning said its FY13 adjusted EPS and net revenue would miss analysts' estimates. For the year, the company is guiding adjusted EPS $4.85-$5.15, well below the consensus of $5.65, on total net revenue $19.5B-$20.5B, also below the consensus of $20.82B. By region, the company forecast U.S. net revenue $10B-$10.6B and Europe revenue $5.5B-$6.1B. Additionally, Teva guided generic medicines net revenue of $10.3B-$10.7B and branded medicines net revenue $7.6B-$8B, including $3.7B-$3.9B in global net revenue for Copaxone and $600M-$700M in global net revenue for Treanda. Teva also provided guidance for FY13 free cash flow of $2.5B-$2.8B, cash flow from operations of $4.5B-$4.8B and adjusted gross profit margin of 59%-61%. On its conference call discussing the 2013 outlook, CFO Eyal Desheh said the company's planned reshaping is expected to yield significant cost savings of $1.5B-$2B over the next five years, and noted that the company will discontinue some legacy R&D programs. The executive also said that Teva is taking a "careful approach" to its Copaxone forecast, guiding for a slight y/y decrease in Copaxone sales. Desheh said the company is looking at the dividend policy on a regular basis with the board, and remains committed to dividends. The company said it is not currently contemplating large acquisitions. Teva CEO Jeremy Levin said that "Going forward you will find that Teva looks like a very different company from the Teva of the past." Following the 2013 guidance and conference call, Teva was positively mentioned at Deutsche Bank. Teva is trading up 50c, or 1.24%, to $40.72 in mid-morning trading.

09:10 EDTTEVAGevo announces Supreme Court rules in favor of Gevo
Gevo (GEVO) announced that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Gevo's favor and overturned an earlier Federal Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on the interpretation of key patent claims. The result is that Gevo's victory in the Delaware District Court is reinstated, and that the case has been remanded back to the Appeals Court for consideration in light of the new standard of appellate review that was decided in the Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., v. Sandoz, Inc. case last week. In Teva (TEVA), the Supreme Court ruled that the Appeals Court must apply a more stringent "clear error" standard of review, rather than a "de novo" standard of review. In Gevo's case, the Appeals Court must now apply the "clear error" standard of review and cannot set aside the Delaware District Court's findings of fact in Gevo's favor unless they were clearly erroneous. The Supreme Court's decision effectively reinstates Gevo's victory at the District Court where a final judgment of non-infringement was entered in Gevo's favor following the acknowledgment by Butamax Advanced Biofuels LLC that Gevo does not infringe Butamax's Patent Nos. 7,851,188 and 7,993,889.

11:29 EDTTEVATeva says Supreme Court reverses circuit court judgment on Copaxone 20 mg/mL
Teva Pharmaceutical announced the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. et al. Petitioners v. Sandoz Inc. et al. that reversed the Federal Circuit Court’s judgment of invalidity of Teva’s ‘808 patent for COPAXONE 20 mg/mL. The Supreme Court remanded the case to the Federal Circuit for further review in light of the applicable standard the Supreme Court laid out for appellate review of claim construction. A ruling last year by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit upheld four Teva patents that expired in May 2014, while invalidating the ‘808 patent that is set to expire on September 1, 2015. “We are encouraged by the U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision and look forward to the Federal Circuit’s review. We will continue to explore all available avenues to protect our intellectual property for COPAXONE 20mg/mL,” said Erez Vigodman, President and CEO of Teva. “There is currently no FDA-approved follow-on version of Teva’s COPAXONE. We are encouraged by the FDA’s willingness to date to have dialogue regarding the complexities of COPAXONE 20 mg/mL and the potential limitations and other unknowns of purported follow-on versions,” added Rob Koremans, MD, President and CEO of Global Specialty Medicines at Teva.
