Pfizer shares fall 5% following miss on EPS and revenues and lowered guidance

The operational decrease was primarily the result of the losses of exclusivity of Lipitor during second-quarter 2012 in developed Europe and Geodon in March 2012 in the U.S., the impact of purchasing patterns of Prevnar/Prevenar 13 in various markets, and certain other events, primarily within the Emerging Markets unit highlighted below.

The company issued guidance for fiscal year 2013 to reflect the impact of recent changes in FX and the Zoetis IPO, lowers EPS to $2.14-2.24, excluding non-recurring items, from $2.20-2.30 vs. $2.27 Capital IQ Consensus Estimate; lowers FY13 revs to $55.3-57.3 bln from $56.2-58.2 billion versus the $57.25 billion consensus. Revenues and expenses of Zoetis continue to be included in the 2013 financial guidance, except that Adjusted and Reported Diluted EPS guidance excludes the earnings from the 19.8% divested interest effective February 7, 2013. The financial guidance has been updated to reflect the following: Reported Revenues: The changes in foreign exchange rates in relation to the U.S. dollar from mid-January 2013 to mid-April 2013, notably the weakening of the Japanese yen. Adjusted Diluted EPS: The aforementioned changes in foreign exchange rates ($0.04 per share) as well as the impact of the Zoetis IPO ($0.02 per share) noted above. which reflects an operational decline of $1.3 billion, or 8%, and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange of $118 million, or 1%.
