Product Sales

Compared to the first quarter of 2013, U.S. product sales for the first quarter of 2014 increased to $3.63 billion from $1.40 billion and Europe product sales increased to $1.02 billion from $818.3 million.

Antiviral Product Sales

Antiviral product sales increased to $4.51 billion for the first quarter of 2014, up from $2.06 billion for the first quarter of 2013 largely due to sales of Sovaldi® (sofosbuvir 400 mg), which launched in December 2013, and increases in sales of Stribild® (elvitegravir 150 mg/cobicistat 150 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg) and Complera/Eviplera® (emtricitabine 200 mg/rilpivirine 25 mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg). This increase was partially offset by a decrease in wholesaler and sub-wholesaler inventories in the United States associated primarily with our HIV products, which also impacted antiviral product sales in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

  • Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased to support the expansion of Gilead's business, particularly in hepatitis C virus (HCV) and in preparation for the anticipated launch of idelalisib.

Cash, Cash Equivalents and Marketable Securities

As of March 31, 2014, Gilead had $6.86 billion of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities compared to $2.57 billion as of December 31, 2013. This increase was primarily due to the issuance of senior unsecured notes in March 2014 for a total aggregate principal amount of $4.00 billion. These proceeds will be for general corporate purposes, which may include the repayment of debt and related payments, working capital and the repurchase of outstanding common stock under the authorized share repurchase program. During the first three months of 2013, Gilead generated $1.57 billion in operating cash flow.

Full Year 2014 Guidance

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Gilead has presented certain financial information in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and also on a non-GAAP basis. Management believes this non-GAAP information is useful for investors, when considered in conjunction with Gilead's GAAP financial statements, because management uses such information internally for its operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and should only be used to supplement an understanding of Gilead's operating results as reported under GAAP. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial information is provided in the table on pages 7 and 8.

Forward-looking Statements

Statements included in this press release that are not historical in nature are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Gilead cautions readers that forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. These risks and uncertainties include: Gilead's ability to achieve its anticipated full year 2014 financial results; Gilead's ability to sustain growth in revenues for its antiviral, cardiovascular and respiratory programs; availability of funding for state AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs); continued fluctuations in ADAP purchases driven by federal and state grant cycles which may not mirror patient demand and may cause fluctuations in Gilead's earnings; the possibility of unfavorable results from clinical trials involving sofosbuvir, including in combination with other product candidates such as LDV; the levels of inventory held by wholesalers and retailers which may cause fluctuations in Gilead's earnings; Gilead's ability to submit NDAs for new product candidates in the timelines currently anticipated; Gilead's ability to receive regulatory approvals in a timely manner or at all, for new and current products, including the fixed-dose combination of LDV/SOF and idelalisib; Gilead's ability to successfully commercialize its products, including Sovaldi, Stribild, Vitekta and Tybost; the risk that estimates of patients with HCV or anticipated patient demand may not be accurate; Gilead's ability to successfully develop its respiratory, cardiovascular and oncology/inflammation programs; safety and efficacy data from clinical studies may not warrant further development of Gilead's product candidates; the potential for additional austerity measures in European countries that may increase the amount of discount required on Gilead's products; fluctuations in the foreign exchange rate of the U.S. dollar that may cause an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact on Gilead's future revenues and pre-tax earnings; and other risks identified from time to time in Gilead's reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In addition, Gilead makes estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosures. Gilead bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other market specific and other relevant assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ significantly from these estimates. You are urged to consider statements that include the words may, will, would, could, should, might, believes, estimates, projects, potential, expects, plans, anticipates, intends, continues, forecast, designed, goal, or the negative of those words or other comparable words to be uncertain and forward-looking. Gilead directs readers to its press releases, Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and other subsequent disclosure documents filed with the SEC. Gilead claims the protection of the Safe Harbor contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 for forward-looking statements.
