NORTH CHICAGO, Ill., Feb. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV) announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022.

"2022 was another highly productive year capping a decade of outstanding performance.

"Looking forward, we have a solid foundation which will allow us to absorb the U.S. Humira loss of exclusivity, return to strong top-line growth in 2025 and drive top-tier financial performance over the long term."

Note: "Operational" comparisons are presented at constant currency rates that reflect comparative local currency net revenues at the prior year's foreign exchange rates.

Recent Events

  • AbbVie announced the European Commission (EC) approved Skyrizi (risankizumab, 600 mg intravenous induction and 360 mg subcutaneous maintenance therapy) as the first specific interleukin-23 (IL-23) inhibitor for the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active Crohn's disease (CD) who have had inadequate response, lost response or were intolerant to conventional or biologic therapy. The approval is supported by results from three Phase 3 studies in which Skyrizi demonstrated significant improvement in clinical remission and endoscopic response, compared to placebo, as both induction and maintenance therapy. This approval marks the third indication for Skyrizi in the European Union (EU). Skyrizi is part of a collaboration between Boehringer Ingelheim and AbbVie, with AbbVie leading development and commercialization globally.
  • At the American College of Rheumatology's (ACR) annual meeting, AbbVie shared 36 abstracts that underscore AbbVie's commitment to advancing research to help more people living with rheumatic diseases. Analyses presented showcased data from the clinical trial programs evaluating Rinvoq (upadacitinib) for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and axial spondyloarthritis (AS) as well as data evaluating Skyrizi for the treatment of psoriasis (PsO) and PsA.
  • AbbVie announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted, for priority review, the Biologics License Application (BLA) for epcoritamab, an investigational subcutaneous bispecific antibody for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed/refractory (r/r) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL). Additionally, AbbVie announced the European Medicines Agency (EMA) validated AbbVie's Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for epcoritamab for the treatment of adult patients with r/r diffuse LBCL. Both applications are supported by data from the EPCORE NHL-1 Phase 2 trial evaluating the safety and preliminary efficacy of subcutaneous epcoritamab in adult patients with relapsed, progressive or refractory CD20+ mature B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Epcoritamab is being co-developed by Genmab and AbbVie.
  • At the American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting, AbbVie presented results from nearly 65 abstracts, including 15 oral presentations, across eight types of cancer. Highlights included four oral presentations evaluating investigational epcoritamab for the treatment of r/r follicular lymphoma (FL), previously untreated FL, r/r diffuse LBCL as well as Richter's syndrome; data from cohort three of the Phase 2 REFINE study evaluating navitoclax in combination with ruxolitinib in JAK inhibitor-naïve patients with myelofibrosis (MF); data from the Phase 2 CAPTIVATE and Phase 3 GLOW studies evaluating fixed-duration treatment in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic leukemia (SLL) who received the Imbruvica (ibrutinib) + Venclexta (venetoclax) combination regimen. AbbVie also presented multiple abstracts evaluating Venclexta in approved CLL and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) indications and the investigational multiple myeloma (MM) indication. Imbruvica is jointly developed and commercialized with Janssen Biotech, Inc. Venetoclax is being developed by AbbVie and Roche and is jointly commercialized by AbbVie and Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, in the U.S. and by AbbVie outside of the U.S.
  • AbbVie announced that the FDA approved Vraylar (cariprazine) as an adjunctive therapy to antidepressants for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) in adults. The approval marks the fourth indication for Vraylar, which is now the first and only dopamine and serotonin partial agonist FDA-approved for the most common forms of depression – as an adjunctive treatment for MDD and the treatment of depressive episodes associated with bipolar I disorder. The approval is supported by clinical data demonstrating the efficacy and well-established tolerability of Vraylar as an adjunctive treatment for MDD with an antidepressant therapy. Vraylar is being co-developed by AbbVie and Gedeon Richter Plc.
  • At the European Headache Federation Congress (EHC) 2022, AbbVie shared 15 abstracts which underscore its commitment to people living with migraine. Presentations highlighted late-breaking data from the Chronic Migraine Epidemiology and Outcomes - International (CaMEO-I) study, evaluating the frequency and burden of neck pain with headache among people with and without migraine, as well as results from the Phase 3 PROGRESS trial evaluating Qulipta (atogepant) for the preventive treatment of chronic migraine (CM) in patients living in Europe.
  • AbbVie announced new results from its exploratory NOVA phase 2 dose-ranging study evaluating the efficacy and safety of AGN-151607, a novel investigational neurotoxin for the prevention of postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) in cardiac surgery patients, at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions meeting. The study's primary endpoint was not met for the modified intent-to-treat (mITT) population; however, the data showed relative risk reduction in specific study populations such as coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients and patients aged 65 years and older, as well as overall lower rates of rehospitalization within 30 days compared to placebo. Adverse Events (AEs) were numerically similar across all treatment groups.
  • AbbVie and HotSpot Therapeutics, Inc., a biotechnology company pioneering the discovery and development of small molecule allosteric therapies for the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases, announced an exclusive worldwide collaboration and option to license agreement for HotSpot's discovery-stage interferon regulatory factor 5 (IRF5) inhibitor program for the potential treatment of autoimmune diseases.
  • AbbVie and Immunome, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that utilizes its human memory B cell platform to discover and develop first-in-class antibody therapeutics, announced a worldwide collaboration and option agreement directed to the discovery of up to 10 novel antibody-target pairs arising from three specified tumor types using Immunome's Discovery Engine.
  • AbbVie and Anima Biotech, announced a collaboration to discover and develop mRNA biology modulators for three targets across Immunology and Oncology. Anima will use its mRNA Lightning platform to discover novel mRNA biology modulators against the collaboration targets providing AbbVie exclusive rights to license and further develop and commercialize the programs.

Full-Year 2023 Outlook

AbbVie is issuing its adjusted diluted EPS guidance for the full-year 2023 of $10.70 to $11.10. The company's 2023 adjusted diluted EPS guidance excludes any impact from acquired IPR&D and milestones that may be incurred during 2023, as both cannot be reliably forecasted.

Non-GAAP Financial Results

Financial results for 2022 and 2021 are presented on both a reported and a non-GAAP basis. Reported results were prepared in accordance with GAAP and include all revenue and expenses recognized during the period. Non-GAAP results adjust for certain non-cash items and for factors that are unusual or unpredictable, and exclude those costs, expenses, and other specified items presented in the reconciliation tables later in this release. Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, the company includes the impact of upfront and milestone payments related to collaborations, licensing agreements, and other asset acquisitions in its reported non-GAAP financial measures. Prior periods have been revised to conform to the current period presentation. AbbVie's management believes non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors regarding AbbVie's results of operations and assist management, analysts, and investors in evaluating the performance of the business. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, AbbVie changed its classification of development milestone expense
associated with licensing and collaboration arrangements in the consolidated statement of earnings. Milestone payments
incurred prior to regulatory approval, which were previously included in research and development expense, are now
presented as acquired IPR&D and milestones expense. The reclassification decreased research and development
expense and increased acquired IPR&D and milestones expense by $162 million for the twelve months ended
December 31, 2021 and had no impact on the three months ended December 31, 2021. The company believes this
presentation assists users of the financial statements to better understand the total upfront and subsequent development
milestone payments incurred to acquire in-process research and development projects. Prior periods have been revised
to conform to the current period presentation. The reclassification had no impact on total operating costs and expenses,
operating earnings, net earnings, net earnings attributable to AbbVie, Inc., earnings per share, or total equity.
