"In 2020, Teva continued to provide essential medicines to millions of patients around the world every day, and despite the COVID-19 pandemic challenges, we saw minimal impact on our supply chain, R&D programs and product launches. Following a strong fourth quarter performance, we have met all components of our 2020 financial guidance," said Mr. Kåre Schultz, Teva’s President and CEO.

"Our key growth drivers delivered promising results and milestones, including the continued growth of AUSTEDO® and our leading biosimilar TRUXIMA®, as AJOVY® sales continued to improve following the launch of the auto-injector. Our generic performance was boosted by the successful launch of the generic versions of HIV-1 treatments Truvada® and Atripla® tablets in the U.S. We have also taken steps to strengthen our biopharmaceutical pipeline, with a biosimilar commercialization agreement, and are advancing other pipeline assets, including the recently announced positive results from the phase 3 trial of risperidone extended-release injectable for patients with schizophrenia."

Mr. Schultz continued, “Looking ahead, we will continue to optimize our manufacturing network, portfolio and pipeline, improve our profitability and generate cash, as we remain on track to repay our debt and achieve our long-term financial targets."
