Anglo-Swedish pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca announced that revenue for the full year was unchanged at constant exchange rates (CER) at $33,269 million. Strong revenue growth in markets outside the US (up 7% at CER) broadly offset the loss of more than $1.6 billion of revenue in the US from generic competition on several products and the absence of H1N1 pandemic influenza vaccine revenue. Strong double-digit sales growth at CER for Crestor, Symbicort and Seroquel XR. Crestor and Seroquel franchise sales now exceed $5 billion each for the full year. Revenue in Emerging Markets grew to over $5.1 billion, a 16% increase at CER. China increased to over $1.0 billion in annual revenue. Core operating profit for the full year unchanged at CER at $13,603 million. Core EPS for the full year increased by 5% at CER to $6.71. Available video includes headquarters, laboratory and production shots.
