Diversification Strategy and Strong Execution Continue to Drive Solid Performance;

Robust Pipeline Continues To Advance and Build Long-Term Value

KENILWORTH, N.J., July 21, 2009 – Corporation (NYSE: SGP) today reported financial results for the 2009 second quarter.

      "Our successful diversification strategy and strong execution by our people have given us the strength to again power through tough challenges – delivering operational sales growth and reconciled earnings-per-share growth for the second quarter," said Fred Hassan, chairman and CEO.

      "Meantime, we can see that six years of focus and investment in our R&D pipeline have created enormous long-term value," said Hassan.  "Our rich late-stage pipeline continues to advance.  We continue to achieve positive regulatory actions in major markets – for example, the recent approval of two products – ASMANEX and REMERON – on the same day in Japan, and a recommendation for approval in Europe of SIMPONI, a novel biologic treatment for inflammatory diseases.  In our industry, long-term strength comes from creating a continuous flow of new innovations.  We are proud that we have created such a strong and productive R&D engine at Schering-Plough."

      For the 2009 second quarter, Schering-Plough reported net income available to common shareholders of $633 million or 38 cents per common share on a GAAP basis.  Earnings per common share for the 2009 second quarter would have been 46 cents on net income of $769 million on a reconciled basis, which excludes purchase accounting adjustments related to the acquisition of Organon BioSciences (OBS) and special, merger- and acquisition-related items.  For the 2008 second quarter, Schering-Plough reported net income available to common shareholders of $424 million or 26 cents per common share on a GAAP basis and earnings of 45 cents per common share on a reconciled basis.

      GAAP net sales for the 2009 second quarter totaled $4.6 billion, down 6 percent as compared to the second quarter of 2008, reflecting operational growth of 4 percent and an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange of 10 percent during the quarter.  

      Net sales of the cholesterol joint venture with Merck & Co., Inc., which include VYTORIN and ZETIA, totaled $1.0 billion in the 2009 second quarter.  Schering-Plough does not record sales of its cholesterol joint venture with Merck as the venture is accounted for under the equity method.  Including an adjustment of an assumed 50 percent of the global cholesterol joint venture net sales, Schering-Plough's adjusted net sales for the 2009 second quarter would have been $5.2 billion.

      "Our diverse product strength – from REMICADE to TEMODAR to NUVARING to MIRALAX – and our rich geographic diversity helped drive our operational growth.  In fact, we grew sales in most regions around the world on an operational basis.  Achieving operational growth on such a broad front in the midst of a severe global recession is no small feat," said Hassan.  

      Regarding the company's R&D strength, the company highlighted its strong R&D engine and steady product flow as a special asset at a time when R&D innovation in the industry is so critical.  The company noted that the "Five Stars" in its product pipeline, highlighted at its November 2008 R&D Update meeting, continued to advance:  thrombin receptor antagonist (TRA), in Phase III for atherothrombosis; SIMPONI (golimumab), a subcutaneous treatment for certain inflammatory diseases; SAPHRIS (asenapine), for the acute treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; boceprevir, a protease inhibitor in Phase III for hepatitis C; and BRIDION (sugammadex), an innovative agent for use in anesthesiology.

      The company's R&D engine has produced a number of recent regulatory and pipeline advances, including:

  • Approvals in Japan, the world's second-largest pharmaceutical market, in July of ASMANEX (mometasone furoate) for asthma and REMERON (mirtazapine) for depression; these approvals bring the number of new products approved in Japan to eight since the beginning of 2007;
  • Positive opinion from the EU's regulatory authority in June recommending approval of SIMPONI as a once-monthly, subcutaneous therapy for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis; SIMPONI was also launched in Canada in June as the first once-monthly subcutaneous treatment;
  • Acceptance for review by the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) in June of the marketing application for asenapine (to be marketed as SYCREST in Europe) sublingual tablets for schizophrenia and bipolar I disorder;
  • Initiation of patient enrollment in a Phase III trial (RED-CABG) in May for acadesine, an investigational, potentially first-in-class adenosine regulating agent for use in heart bypass surgery; and
  • In Animal Health, the launch of the first vaccine against canine influenza virus, which was granted a conditional product license by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in May.

      Regarding the planned merger with Merck announced on March 9, 2009, the company noted that pre-integration planning teams at both Schering-Plough and Merck have been meeting collaboratively to plan for a smooth and effective integration.  The merger is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2009.  Until the merger closes, both companies will continue to operate independently.

Second Quarter 2009 Results

For the 2009 second quarter, Schering-Plough reported net income available to common shareholders of $633 million or 38 cents per common share on a GAAP basis.  Earnings per common share for the 2009 second quarter would have been 46 cents on net income of $769 million on a reconciled basis, which excludes purchase accounting adjustments related to the OBS acquisition and special, merger- and acquisition-related items.  For the 2008 second quarter, Schering-Plough reported net income available to common shareholders of $424 million or 26 cents per common share on a GAAP basis and earnings of 45 cents per common share on a reconciled basis.

      GAAP net sales for the 2009 second quarter totaled $4.6 billion, down 6 percent as compared to the second quarter of 2008, reflecting operational growth of 4 percent and an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange of 10 percent during the quarter.

      Net sales of the cholesterol franchise, which include sales of the cholesterol joint venture plus sales recorded by Schering-Plough in non-joint venture territories (such as Japan and Latin America), declined 8 percent in the second quarter of 2009 to $1.1 billion, reflecting a 2 percent operational decrease and a 6 percent unfavorable impact from foreign exchange.  Sales declined 10 percent in the U.S.  In international markets, sales declined 4 percent, reflecting operational growth of 10 percent and a 14 percent unfavorable impact from foreign exchange.  ZETIA in Japan, sold under a co-marketing agreement with Bayer, contributed $41 million to cholesterol franchise sales in the 2009 period.    

      Sales of Prescription Pharmaceuticals for the 2009 second quarter decreased 3 percent to $3.6 billion, reflecting 7 percent operational growth and an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange of 10 percent.

      Sales of REMICADE increased 2 percent (19 percent operational growth offset by 17 percent unfavorable foreign exchange impact) to $565 million in the second quarter of 2009 due to continued market growth.  REMICADE is a treatment for inflammatory diseases that Schering-Plough markets in countries outside the U.S. (except in Japan and certain other Asian markets) for rheumatoid arthritis, early rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, plaque psoriasis, Crohn's disease, pediatric Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

      Global sales of NASONEX, an inhaled nasal corticosteroid for allergies, increased 3 percent to $321 million in the 2009 second quarter (10 percent operational growth offset by 7 percent unfavorable foreign exchange impact) as compared to $311 million in the second quarter of 2008.  Operational sales were strong in both the U.S. and internationally as compared to the 2008 period.

      Sales of TEMODAR, a treatment for certain types of brain tumors, increased 2 percent (11 percent operational growth offset by 9 percent unfavorable foreign exchange impact) to $256 million, with higher sales in the U.S. and Japan.

      Sales of PEGINTRON for hepatitis C decreased 6 percent to $215 million in the 2009 second quarter, primarily due to the unfavorable foreign exchange impact of 6 percent.

      In women's health care, sales of FOLLISTIM/PUREGON, a fertility treatment, for the second quarter of 2009 decreased 11 percent (1 percent operational decrease and 10 percent unfavorable foreign exchange impact) to $145 million as compared to the second quarter of 2008.  Sales of NUVARING, a contraceptive product, in the second quarter of 2009 increased 11 percent (19 percent operational growth offset by 8 percent unfavorable foreign exchange impact) to $129 million as compared to $116 million in the second quarter of 2008.  

      Global sales of CLARINEX, a nonsedating antihistamine, were $226 million, a decrease of 6 percent (4 percent operational growth offset by 10 percent unfavorable foreign exchange impact) as compared to the second quarter of 2008.  

      Sales of CLARITIN in the prescription business were $96 million, a 13 percent decrease (6 percent operational decrease and 7 percent unfavorable foreign exchange impact) compared to sales of $111 million in the second quarter of 2008.

      Animal Health sales totaled $677 million in the 2009 second quarter, a 17 percent decrease as compared to $818 million in the second quarter of 2008 (7 percent operational decrease and 10 percent unfavorable foreign exchange impact).  The sales decline was a result of the overall economic environment, difficult comparisons against the 2008 launch of bluetongue vaccine and the impact of 2008 product divestitures.

      Consumer Health Care sales were $381 million in the 2009 second quarter, down 5 percent versus the 2008 period.  The decrease was primarily due to lower sales of sun care products, which primarily reflected the impact of unseasonable weather conditions in many parts of the U.S.  Higher sales of MIRALAX helped offset lower sales of OTC CLARITIN.

      Schering-Plough does not record sales of its cholesterol joint venture and incurs substantial costs such as selling, general and administrative costs that are not reflected in "Equity income" and are borne by the overall cost structure of Schering-Plough.  As a result, Schering-Plough's gross margin and ratios of selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses and R&D expenses as a percentage of sales do not reflect the benefit of the impact of the cholesterol joint venture's operating results.

      Schering-Plough's gross margin on a GAAP basis was unfavorably affected by purchase accounting adjustments and totaled 65.1 percent for the 2009 second quarter as compared to 61.2 percent in the 2008 period.  On a reconciled basis, the gross margin percentage decreased to 68.1 percent for the second quarter of 2009 as compared to 68.4 percent for the second quarter of 2008, primarily due to the unfavorable impact from foreign exchange.

      SG&A expenses were $1.6 billion in the second quarter of 2009, a 13 percent decrease versus the second quarter of 2008 primarily due to the impact of foreign exchange and the company's Productivity Transformation Program (PTP).

      Research and development spending for the 2009 second quarter totaled $863 million, a 5 percent decrease, primarily due to the impact of foreign exchange.

Note: The Company incurs substantial costs related to the cholesterol joint venture, such as selling, general and administrative costs, that are not reflected in the "Equity income" and are borne by the overall cost structure of Schering-Plough.

1/ Cost of sales for the three months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 include purchase accounting adjustments of $131 million and $354 million, respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, cost of sales includes purchase accounting adjustments of $256 million and $1.0 billion, respectively.

2/   Special, merger and acquisition-related charges relate to the Productivity Transformation Program (PTP) and costs incurred related to the proposed merger with Merck. For the three months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 these charges were $29 million ($18 million for severance costs and $11 million for merger costs) and $94 million ($77 million for severance costs and $17 million for integration-related costs), respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 these charges were $104 million ($74 million for severance costs and $30 million for merger costs) and $117 million ($84 million for severance costs and $33 million for integration-related costs), respectively.

3/ Included in Equity income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008 was $64 million of income related to the termination of a respiratory joint venture with Merck.

4/ Diluted EPS for the three months ended June 30, 2009 is calculated based on net income available to common shareholders and average diluted shares - common and participating - outstanding. For the three months ended June 30, 2009, approximately 91 million common shares obtainable upon conversion of Schering-Plough's 2007 mandatory convertible preferred stock were excluded from the computation of diluted EPS because their effect would have been antidilutive. For the six months ended June 30, 2009, diluted EPS is calculated based on net income and average diluted shares - common and participating - outstanding. For the six months ended June 30, 2009, approximately 91 million common shares obtainable upon conversion of Schering-Plough's 2007 mandatory convertible preferred stock were included in the computation of diluted EPS because their effect would have been dilutive.


SCHERING-PLOUGH CORPORATION

Reconciliation from Reported Net Income Available to Common Shareholders

and Reported Diluted Earnings Per Common Share to As Reconciled Amounts for Net Income

Available to Common Shareholders and Diluted Earnings per Common Share

(Amounts in Millions, except per share figures)

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP), Schering-Plough is providing the supplemental financial information below and on the following pages to reflect "As Reconciled" amounts related to Net income available to common shareholders and Diluted earnings per common share.  "As Reconciled" amounts exclude the effects of purchase accounting adjustments, special and acquisition-related items and other specified items.

"As Reconciled" amounts related to Net income available to common shareholders and Diluted earnings per common share are non-U.S. GAAP measures used by management in evaluating the performance of Schering-Plough's overall business.  The effects of purchase accounting adjustments, special and acquisition-related items and other specified items have been excluded from Net income available to common shareholders and Diluted earnings per common share as management of Schering-Plough does not consider these charges to be indicative of continuing operating results.  Schering-Plough believes that these "As Reconciled" performance measures contribute to a more complete understanding by investors of the overall results of the company and enhances investor understanding of items that impact the comparability of results between fiscal periods.  Net income available to common shareholders and Diluted earnings per common share, as reported, are required to be presented under U.S. GAAP.

a/ Total Net sales of the cholesterol joint venture for the three months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 were $1.0 billion and $1.1 billion, respectively.  Total Net sales of the cholesterol joint venture for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 were $1.9 billion and $2.3 billion, respectively.

NOTE:  Adjusted net sales, defined as net sales plus an assumed 50 percent of global cholesterol joint venture net sales, is a non-U.S. GAAP measure used by management in evaluating the performance of the Schering-Plough's overall business.  Schering-Plough believes that this performance measure contributes to a more complete understanding by investors of the overall results of the company.  Schering-Plough provides this information to supplement the reader's understanding of the importance to the company of its share of results from the operations of the cholesterol joint venture.  Net sales (excluding the cholesterol joint venture net sales) is required to be presented under U.S. GAAP.  The cholesterol joint venture's net sales are included as a component of income from operations in the calculation of Schering-Plough's "Equity income."  Net sales of the cholesterol joint venture do not include net sales of cholesterol products in non-joint venture territories.
