Financial Performance

Teva's revenue has been declining since 2017. Its net income suffered consecutive net losses since 2017.

Teva's revenues in 2019 were $16.9 million, a decrease of 8% in US dollar, or 5% in local currency terms, compared to 2018, mainly due to generic competition to COPAXONE, a decline in revenues from its US generics business, BENDEKA/TREANDA and Japan, partially offset by higher revenues from AUSTEDO, AJOVY and QVAR in the United States.

Net loss attributable to Teva was $999 million in 2019, compared to a net loss of $2.2 million in 2018.

Teva ended 2018 with $2 billion in net cash, 11% more than what it had at the end of 2018. Operating activities provided $748 million and investing activities provided another $1.4 billion, while financing activities (primarily the repayment of liabilities) used $1.9 billion.

Strategy

In December 2017, Teva announced a comprehensive two-year restructuring plan intended to reduce its cost base by $3 billion, unify and simplify its organization and improve business performance, profitability, cash flow generation and productivity. This plan achieved its goals, including a total cost base reduction of $3 billion by the end of 2019. The company is continuing to evaluate opportunities to further optimize its manufacturing and supply network to achieve additional operational efficiencies.

All of the company's R&D activities are concentrated under one global group with overall responsibility for generics, specialty and biologics, enabling better focus and efficiency.

A strong focus for Teva is the development of new generic medicines. Teva develops generic products for the United States, Europe, and its International Markets segment. The company's focus is on developing complex formulations with complex technologies, which have higher barriers to entry. Generic R&D activities, which are carried out in development centers located around the world, include product formulation, analytical method development, stability testing, management of bioequivalence, bio-analytical studies, other clinical studies and registration of generic drugs in all of the markets where Teva operates.
