At a virtual meeting with the investment community today, Viatris Inc. (NASDAQ: VTRS) will outline how the company expects to lead as a new kind of healthcare company with a unique and differentiated business model, high-quality operational platform and clear focus on ensuring its sustainability priorities and financial commitments are met.

Viatris CEO Michael Goettler said, "Building on a strong, combined foundation, we are embarking on a multi-year journey to transform our company. We believe that we are well positioned to achieve our goals by leveraging our strengths and unique capabilities. We are relentless in our commitment to continuous improvement and high quality. Our obsession to create value in everything we do will serve as our north star. With talented and committed colleagues, an engaged culture and clear strategy, we are confident we can deliver enhanced shareholder value as we execute.

"Together we are confident we will be able to pursue our mission to empower people worldwide to live healthier at every stage of life while maintaining a strong balance sheet, rebalancing our business, generating strong and growing free cash flows, rapidly de-leveraging and building the foundation for future growth fueled by our Global Healthcare Gateway®," Goettler said.

During the event, members of Viatris' management team will provide insight into the company's powerful new platform and will also outline how Viatris intends to generate value for its patients, employees, customers and shareholders. This includes how Viatris expects to:

  • Leverage its unique and differentiated business model. Viatris has built a unique and differentiated business model that has enhanced global scale and geographic reach, a sustainable, diverse and differentiated portfolio and pipeline, a powerful operating platform and commercial capabilities, a performance-driven culture focused on transparency and accountability and sustainable cash flows that it expects will enable disciplined capital allocation.
  • Deliver on its financial commitments. In the near term Viatris is focused on de-levering and rebalancing its business and meeting its financial commitments, including that 2021 is expected to be a trough year in terms of revenue, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flows, that the company will realize $1 billion in synergies within 3 years and that its strong and growing free cash flow will enable the company to initiate a dividend in the second quarter of this year and repay approximately $6.5 billion in debt by the end of 2023.
  • Ensure its sustainability priorities are embedded and aligned with business objectives. Viatris is starting its journey from a position of strength in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility with a powerful global platform to create sustainable access to medicines for patients and partnerships with more than 60 organizations around the world to advance and amplify its impact. The company intends to leverage this strong foundation to deliver on its mission for patients, employees, customers and shareholders.
  • Drive future growth through its Global Healthcare Gateway®. Viatris believes the Global Healthcare Gateway® will become the heart of the company providing opportunity not only for Viatris to leverage its unique global platform to connect more patients to more products and services, but also allowing partners to do the same.
