NEW HAVEN, Conn., April 26, 2018- Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALXN) today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2018. Total revenues in the first quarter were $930.9 million, a 7 percent increase compared to the same period in 2017. First quarter 2017 revenues included a benefit of $49.2 million due to both the recognition of deferred revenue and timing of orders from certain non-U.S. markets that access Alexion's products through a tender process. The benefit of foreign currency on total revenues year-over-year was 2 percent or $13.7 million, net of hedging activities. On a GAAP basis, diluted earnings per share (EPS) in the quarter was $1.11 per share, a 48 percent increase versus the prior year. Non-GAAP diluted EPS for the first quarter of 2018 was $1.68 per share, a 22 percent increase versus the prior year.

"In the first quarter of 2018 we had strong momentum in our complement and metabolic portfolios. We continue to see robust underlying growth of Soliris and I am particularly pleased with the U.S. launch in patients with gMG. In addition, Strensiq remains a key driver of growth as we continue to serve new patients with HPP," said Ludwig Hantson, Chief Executive Officer of Alexion. "Along with growing our in-line business, we announced positive topline results from both the ALXN1210 Phase 3 PNH Naive and Switch studies, and executed on our disciplined business development plan with the anticipated acquisition of Wilson Therapeutics to begin to rebuild the clinical pipeline. We are delivering on our 2018 objectives to drive sustainable long-term growth and I look forward to providing updates on our progress throughout the year."
