Note 1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

Basis of Consolidation

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company ("BMS" or "the Company") prepared these unaudited consolidated financial statements following the requirements of the SEC and U.S. GAAP for interim reporting. Under those rules, certain footnotes and other financial information that are normally required for annual financial statements can be condensed or omitted. The Company is responsible for the consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which include all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. These financial statements and the related notes should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020 included in the 2020 Form 10-K. Refer to the Summary of Abbreviated Terms at the end of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for terms used throughout the document.

Business Segment Information

BMS operates in a single segment engaged in the discovery, development, licensing, manufacturing, marketing, distribution and sale of innovative medicines that help patients prevail over serious diseases. A global research and development organization and supply chain organization are responsible for the discovery, development, manufacturing and supply of products. Regional commercial organizations market, distribute and sell the products. The business is also supported by global corporate staff functions. Consistent with BMS's operational structure, the Chief Executive Officer ("CEO"), as the chief operating decision maker, manages and allocates resources at the global corporate level. Managing and allocating resources at the global corporate level enables the CEO to assess both the overall level of resources available and how to best deploy these resources across functions, therapeutic areas, regional commercial organizations and research and development projects in line with our overarching long-term corporate-wide strategic goals, rather than on a product or franchise basis. The determination of a single segment is consistent with the financial information regularly reviewed by the CEO for purposes of evaluating performance, allocating resources, setting incentive compensation targets, and planning and forecasting future periods. For further information on product and regional revenue, see "-Note 2. Revenue."

Use of Estimates and Judgments

Revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities can vary during each quarter of the year. Accordingly, the results and trends in these unaudited consolidated financial statements may not be indicative of full year operating results. The preparation of financial statements requires the use of management estimates, judgments and assumptions. The most significant assumptions are estimates used in determining accounting for acquisitions; impairments of intangible assets; sales rebate and return accruals; legal contingencies; and income taxes. Actual results may differ from estimates.

Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications were made to conform the prior period consolidated financial statements to the current period presentation. Cash payments resulting from licensing arrangements, including up-front and contingent milestones previously included in operating activities in the consolidated statements of cash flows are now presented in investing activities. The adjustment resulted in an increase to net cash provided by operating activities and net cash used in investing activities of $315 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Proceeds received from the sale of equity investment securities previously presented in Divestiture and other proceeds in the consolidated statements of cash flows is now presented separately in Proceeds from sales of equity investment securities. These reclassifications did not have an impact on net assets or net earnings.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

In December 2019, the FASB issued amended guidance on the accounting and reporting of income taxes. The guidance is intended to simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing exceptions related to certain intraperiod tax allocations and deferred tax liabilities; clarifying guidance primarily related to evaluating the step-up tax basis for goodwill in a business combination; and reflecting enacted changes in tax laws or rates in the annual effective tax rate. BMS adopted the new guidance effective January 1, 2021. The amended guidance did not have a material impact on BMS's results of operations.

Note 2. REVENUE

The following table summarizes the disaggregation of revenue by nature:
Three Months Ended September 30, Nine Months Ended September 30,
Dollars in Millions 2021 2020 2021 2020
Net product sales $ 11,243 $ 10,197 $ 33,446 $ 30,555

Other revenues 187 159 459 443
Total Revenues $ 11,624 $ 10,540 $ 34,400 $ 31,450

Products are sold principally to wholesalers, distributors, specialty pharmacies, and to a lesser extent, directly to retailers, hospitals, clinics and government agencies. Customer orders are generally fulfilled within a few days of receipt resulting in minimal order backlog. Contractual performance obligations are usually limited to transfer of control of the product to the customer. The transfer occurs either upon shipment, upon receipt of the product after considering when the customer obtains legal title to the product, or upon infusion for cell therapies and when BMS obtains a right of payment. At these points, customers are able to direct the use of and obtain substantially all of the remaining benefits of the product.

Contract assets were not material at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

Note 3. ALLIANCES

BMS enters into collaboration arrangements with third parties for the development and commercialization of certain products. Although each of these arrangements is unique in nature, both parties are active participants in the operating activities of the collaboration and exposed to significant risks and rewards depending on the commercial success of the activities. BMS may either in-license intellectual property owned by the other party or out-license its intellectual property to the other party. These arrangements also typically include research, development, manufacturing, and/or commercial activities and can cover a single investigational compound or commercial product or multiple compounds and/or products in various life cycle stages. The rights and obligations of the parties can be global or limited to geographic regions. BMS refers to these collaborations as alliances and its partners as alliance partners.

Selected financial information pertaining to alliances was as follows, including net product sales when BMS is the principal in the third-party customer sale for products subject to the alliance. Expenses summarized below do not include all amounts attributed to the activities for the products in the alliance, but only the payments between the alliance partners or the related amortization if the payments were deferred or capitalized.

Eisai

In the second quarter of 2021, BMS and Eisai commenced an exclusive global strategic collaboration for the co-development and co-commercialization of MORAb-202, a selective folate receptor alpha antibody-drug conjugate being investigated in endometrial, ovarian, lung and breast cancers. MORAb-202 is currently in Phase I/II clinical trials for solid tumors.

BMS and Eisai will jointly develop and commercialize MORAb-202 in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Russia, Japan, China and certain other countries in the Asia-Pacific region (the "collaboration territory"). Eisai will be responsible for the global manufacturing and supply. Profits, research and development and commercialization costs are shared in the collaboration territories. BMS will be responsible for development and commercialization outside of the collaboration territory and will pay a royalty on those sales.

A $650 million up-front collaboration fee was included in Research and development expense in the second quarter of 2021. BMS is also obligated to pay up to $2.5 billion upon the achievement of contingent development, regulatory and sales-based milestones.

AGEN1777 is being studied in oncology and a Phase I clinical trial was initiated in October 2021. BMS will be responsible for the development and any subsequent commercialization of AGEN1777 and its related products worldwide, including strategic decisions, regulatory responsibilities, funding and manufacturing. The transaction included an up-front payment of $200 million which was included in Research and development expense and Agenus is eligible to receive contingent development, regulatory and sales-based milestones up to $1.4 billion as well as royalties on global net sales.

In 2019, a restructuring and integration plan was implemented as an initiative to realize sustainable run rate synergies resulting from cost savings and avoidance from the Celgene acquisition that are currently expected to be approximately $3.0 billion. The synergies are expected to be realized in Cost of products sold (10%), Marketing, selling and administrative expenses (55%) and Research and development expenses (35%). Charges of approximately $3.0 billion are expected to be incurred through 2022. Cumulative charges of approximately $2.4 billion have been recognized to date including integration planning and execution expenses, employee termination benefit costs and accelerated stock-based compensation, contract termination costs and other shutdown costs associated with site exits. Cash outlays in connection with these actions are expected to be approximately $2.5 billion. Employee workforce reductions were approximately 320 and 1,400 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

MyoKardia Acquisition Plan

In 2020, a restructuring and integration plan was initiated to realize expected cost synergies resulting from cost savings and avoidance from the MyoKardia acquisition. Charges of approximately $150 million are expected to be incurred through 2022, and consist of integration planning and execution expenses, employee termination benefit costs and other costs. Cumulative charges of approximately $113 million have been recognized for these actions to date.

Company Transformation

In 2016, a restructuring plan was announced to evolve and streamline BMS's operating model. Cumulative charges of approximately $1.5 billion were recognized for these actions since the announcement. Actions under the plan were completed as of December 31, 2020.

Excludes $12 million and $64 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, of accelerated stock-based compensation relating to the Celgene Acquisition Plan.

Note 7. INCOME TAXES
Three Months Ended September 30, Nine Months Ended September 30,
Dollars in Millions 2021 2020 2021 2020
Earnings Before Income Taxes $ 2,157 $ 2,257 $ 6,240 $ 3,580
Provision for Income Taxes 605 379 1,598 2,548
Effective Tax Rate 28.0 % 16.8 % 25.6 % 71.2 %

Income taxes in interim periods are determined based on the estimated annual effective tax rates and the tax impact of discrete items that are reflected immediately. The effective tax rates in 2021 and 2020 were impacted by low jurisdictional tax rates attributed to the unwinding of inventory fair value adjustments and intangible asset amortization, an IPRD impairment charge and contingent value rights fair value adjustments that are not taxable or deductible. The nine months ended September 30, 2020 includes an $853 million deferred tax charge resulting from an internal transfer of certain intangible assets to the U.S. and an additional $266 million GILTI tax charge upon finalization of the Otezla*divestiture tax consequences with tax authorities. Additional changes to the effective tax rate may occur in future periods due to various reasons, including changes to the estimated pretax earnings mix and tax reserves and revised interpretations or changes to the relevant tax code.

It is reasonably possible that the amount of unrecognized tax benefits at September 30, 2021 could decrease in the range of approximately $430 million to $480 million in the next twelve months as a result of the settlement of certain tax audits and other events. The expected change in unrecognized tax benefits may result in the payment of additional taxes, adjustment of certain deferred taxes and/or recognition of tax benefits.

BMS is currently under examination by a number of tax authorities, which have proposed or are considering proposing material adjustments to tax positions for issues such as transfer pricing, certain tax credits and the deductibility of certain expenses. As previously disclosed, BMS received several notices of proposed adjustments from the IRS related to transfer pricing and other tax positions for the 2008 to 2012 tax years. BMS disagrees with the IRS's positions and continues to work cooperatively with the IRS to resolve these open tax audits. It is reasonably possible that new issues will be raised by tax authorities that may increase unrecognized tax benefits; however, an estimate of such increases cannot reasonably be made at this time. BMS believes that it has adequately provided for all open tax years by tax jurisdiction.

Note 9. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are summarized below:

Dollars in Millions Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 1 Level 2 Level 3
Cash and cash equivalents - money market and other securities $ - $ 11,660 $ - $ - $ 12,361 $ -

Contingent consideration liability:
Contingent value rights 9 - - 530 - -
Other acquisition related contingent consideration - - 67 - - 78

As further described in "Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data-Note 9. Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements" in the Company's 2020 Form 10-K, the Company's fair value estimates use inputs that are either (1) quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets (Level 1 inputs); (2) observable prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets or for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active (Level 2 inputs); or (3) unobservable inputs (Level 3 inputs).

Contingent consideration obligations are recorded at their estimated fair values and these obligations are revalued each reporting period until the related contingencies are resolved. The contingent value rights are adjusted to fair value using the traded price of the securities at the end of each reporting period. The fair value measurements for other contingent consideration liabilities are estimated using probability-weighted discounted cash flow approaches that are based on significant unobservable inputs related to product candidates acquired in business combinations and are reviewed quarterly. These inputs include, as applicable, estimated probabilities and timing of achieving specified development and regulatory milestones and the discount rate used to calculate the present value of estimated future payments. Significant changes which increase or decrease the probabilities of achieving the related development and regulatory events or shorten or lengthen the time required to achieve such events would result in corresponding increases or decreases in the fair values of these obligations. The fair value of other acquisition related contingent consideration as of September 30, 2021 was calculated using the following significant unobservable inputs:
Ranges (weighted average) utilized as of:
Inputs September 30, 2021
Discount rate
0.3% to 1.3% (0.6%)

Qualifying Hedges and Non-Qualifying Derivatives

Cash Flow Hedges - Foreign currency forward contracts are used to hedge certain forecasted intercompany inventory purchases and sales transactions and certain foreign currency transactions. The fair value for contracts designated as cash flow hedges is temporarily reported in Accumulated other comprehensive loss and included in earnings when the hedged item affects earnings. The net gain or loss on foreign currency forward contracts is expected to be reclassified to net earnings (primarily included in Cost of products sold and Other (income)/expense, net) within the next 12 months. The notional amount of outstanding foreign currency forward contracts was primarily attributed to the euro of $3.0 billion and Japanese yen of $1.0 billion at September 30, 2021.

14


The earnings impact related to discontinued cash flow hedges and hedge ineffectiveness was not material during all periods presented. Cash flow hedge accounting is discontinued when the forecasted transaction is no longer probable of occurring within 60 days after the originally forecasted date or when the hedge is no longer effective. Assessments to determine whether derivatives designated as qualifying hedges are highly effective in offsetting changes in the cash flows of hedged items are performed at inception and on a quarterly basis. Foreign currency forward contracts not designated as hedging instruments are used to offset exposures in certain foreign currency denominated assets, liabilities and earnings. Changes in the fair value of these derivatives are recognized in earnings as they occur.

BMS may hedge a portion of its future foreign currency exposure by utilizing a strategy that involves both a purchased local currency put option and a written local currency call option that are accounted for as hedges of future sales denominated in that local currency. Specifically, BMS sells (or writes) a local currency call option and purchases a local currency put option with the same expiration dates and local currency notional amounts but with different strike prices. The premium collected from the sale of the call option is equal to the premium paid for the purchased put option, resulting in no net premium being paid. This combination of transactions is generally referred to as a "zero-cost collar." The expiration dates and notional amounts correspond to the amount and timing of forecasted foreign currency sales. If the U.S. dollar weakens relative to the currency of the hedged anticipated sales, the purchased put option value reduces to zero and BMS benefits from the increase in the U.S. dollar equivalent value of our anticipated foreign currency cash flows; however, this benefit would be capped at the strike level of the written call, which forms the upper end of the collar.

Net Investment Hedges -Non-U.S. dollar borrowings of €950 million ($1.1 billion) at September 30, 2021 are designated as net investment hedges to hedge euro currency exposures of the net investment in certain foreign affiliates and are recognized in long-term debt. The effective portion of foreign exchange gain on the remeasurement of euro debt was included in the foreign currency translation component of Accumulated other comprehensive loss with the related offset in long-term debt.

Cross-currency interest rate swap contracts of $600 million at September 30, 2021 are designated to hedge Japanese yen currency exposure of BMS's net investment in its Japan subsidiaries. Contract fair value changes are recorded in the foreign currency translation component of Accumulated other comprehensive loss with a related offset in Other non-current assets or Other non-current liabilities.

Fair Value Hedges -Fixed to floating interest rate swap contracts are designated as fair value hedges and used as an interest rate risk management strategy to create an appropriate balance of fixed and floating rate debt. The contracts and underlying debt for the hedged benchmark risk are recorded at fair value. The effective interest rate for the contracts is one-month LIBOR (0.08% as of September 30, 2021) plus an interest rate spread of 4.6%. Gains or losses resulting from changes in fair value of the underlying debt attributable to the hedged benchmark interest rate risk are recorded in interest expense with an associated offset to the carrying value of debt. Since the specific terms and notional amount of the swap are intended to align with the debt being hedged, all changes in fair value of the swap are recorded in interest expense with an associated offset to the derivative asset or liability on the consolidated balance sheet. As a result, there was no net impact in earnings. If the underlying swap is terminated prior to maturity, then the fair value adjustment to the underlying debt is amortized as a reduction to interest expense over the remaining term of the debt.

The fair value of long-term debt was $49.8 billion at September 30, 2021 and $58.5 billion at December 31, 2020 valued using Level 2 inputs, which are based upon the quoted market prices for the same or similar debt instruments. The fair value of short-term borrowings approximates the carrying value due to the short maturities of the debt instruments.

In the first quarter of 2021, BMS purchased aggregate principal amount of $3.5 billion of certain of its debt securities for approximately $4.0 billion of cash in a series of tender offers and "make whole" redemptions. In connection with these transactions, a $281 million loss on debt redemption was recognized based on the carrying value of the debt and included in Other (income)/expense, net.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the $500 million 2.875% Notes, $1.0 billion 2.550% Notes and $500 million 2.250% Notes matured and were repaid.

Interest payments were $1.2 billion and $1.3 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, net of amounts related to interest rate swap contracts.

As of September 30, 2021, BMS had four separate revolving credit facilities totaling $6.0 billion, which consisted of a 364-day $2.0 billion facility expiring in January 2022, a three-year $1.0 billion facility expiring in January 2022 and two five-year $1.5 billion facilities that were extended to September 2025 and July 2026, respectively. The facilities provide for customary terms and conditions with no financial covenants and may be used to provide backup liquidity for BMS's commercial paper borrowings and are extendable annually by one year on the anniversary date with the consent of the lenders. No borrowings were outstanding under any revolving credit facility at September 30, 2021 or December 31, 2020.

In the third quarter of 2021, a $610 million IPRD impairment charge for an investigational compound was recorded in Research and development expense primarily resulting from changes in clinical timelines, expected launch dates and competitive landscape. The compound is being studied as a potential treatment for hematologic diseases and was acquired in the acquisition of Celgene. The charge represented a partial write-down of its carrying value based on the estimated fair value determined using discounted cash flow projections.

In the second quarter of 2021, a $230 million IPRD impairment charge was recorded in Research and development expense following a decision to discontinue development of an investigational compound in connection with the prioritization of current pipeline opportunities. The compound was being studied as a potential treatment for fibrotic diseases and was acquired in the acquisition of Celgene. The charge represented a full write-down based on the estimated fair value determined using discounted cash flow projections.

In the first quarter of 2021, InrebicEU regulatory approval milestones of $300 million were achieved resulting in a $385 million increase to the acquired marketed product rights intangible asset, after establishing the applicable deferred tax liability. An impairment charge of $315 million was recognized in Cost of products sold as the carrying value of this asset exceeded the projected undiscounted cash flows of the asset. The charge was equal to the excess of the asset's carrying value over its estimated fair value using discounted cash flow projections.

BMS has a share repurchase program, authorized by its Board of Directors, allowing for repurchases of its shares. The share repurchase program does not obligate us to repurchase any specific number of shares, does not have a specific expiration date and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. Treasury stock is recognized at the cost to reacquire the shares. Shares issued from treasury are recognized utilizing the first-in first-out method.

The outstanding share repurchase authority authorization under the program was $4.4 billion as of December 31, 2020. In January 2021, the Board of Directors approved an increase of $2.0 billion to the share repurchase authorization for BMS's common stock. BMS repurchased approximately 54 million shares of its common stock for $3.5 billion during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The remaining share repurchase capacity under the share repurchase program was approximately $2.9 billion as of September 30, 2021.

BMS repurchased 1.4 million shares of its common stock for $81 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

In the fourth quarter of 2019, BMS executed accelerated share repurchase ("ASR") agreements to repurchase an aggregate $7 billion of common stock. The ASR was funded with cash on-hand. In the fourth quarter of 2019, approximately 99 million shares of common stock (80% of the $7 billion aggregate repurchase price) were received by BMS and included in treasury stock. In the second quarter of 2020, the agreement was settled and approximately 16 million shares of common stock were received by BMS and transferred to treasury stock.

Note 17. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS AND CONTINGENCIES

BMS and certain of its subsidiaries are involved in various lawsuits, claims, government investigations and other legal proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of business. These claims or proceedings can involve various types of parties, including governments, competitors, customers, suppliers, service providers, licensees, employees, or shareholders, among others. These matters may involve patent infringement, antitrust, securities, pricing, sales and marketing practices, environmental, commercial, contractual rights, licensing obligations, health and safety matters, consumer fraud, employment matters, product liability and insurance coverage, among others. The resolution of these matters often develops over a long period of time and expectations can change as a result of new findings, rulings, appeals or settlement arrangements. Legal proceedings that are significant or that BMS believes could become significant or material are described below.

While BMS does not believe that any of these matters, except as otherwise specifically noted below, will have a material adverse effect on its financial position or liquidity as BMS believes it has substantial defenses in the matters, the outcomes of BMS's legal proceedings and other contingencies are inherently unpredictable and subject to significant uncertainties. There can be no assurance that there will not be an increase in the scope of one or more of these pending matters or any other or future lawsuits, claims, government investigations or other legal proceedings will not be material to BMS's financial position, results of operations or cash flows for a particular period. Furthermore, failure to enforce BMS's patent rights would likely result in substantial decreases in the respective product revenues from generic competition.

Unless otherwise noted, BMS is unable to assess the outcome of the respective matters nor is it able to estimate the possible loss or range of losses that could potentially result for such matters. Contingency accruals are recognized when it is probable that a liability will be incurred and the amount of the related loss can be reasonably estimated. Developments in legal proceedings and other matters that could cause changes in the amounts previously accrued are evaluated each reporting period. For a discussion of BMS's tax contingencies, see "-Note 7. Income Taxes".

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Anti-PD-1 Antibody Litigation
In September 2015, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute ("Dana-Farber") filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts seeking to correct the inventorship on up to six related U.S. patents directed to methods of treating cancer using PD-1 and PD-L1 antibodies. Specifically, Dana-Farber is seeking to add two scientists as inventors to these patents. In October 2017, Pfizer was allowed to intervene in this case alleging that one of the scientists identified by Dana-Farber was employed by a company eventually acquired by Pfizer during the relevant period. In February 2019, BMS settled the lawsuit with Pfizer. A bench trial in the lawsuit with Dana-Farber took place in February 2019. In May 2019, the District Court issued an opinion ruling that the two scientists should be added as inventors to the patents, which was affirmed on appeal. In May 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to consider the case. In June 2019, Dana-Farber filed a new lawsuit in the District of Massachusetts against BMS seeking damages as a result of the District Court's decision adding the scientists as inventors. In February 2021, BMS filed a motion to dismiss the complaint. In August 2021, the Court denied the motion to dismiss, but ruled that Dana-Farber's claims for damages before May 17, 2019-the date of the District Court's ruling that Dana-Farber was a co-inventor of the patents-are preempted by federal patent law. Discovery is proceeding.

CAR T
In October 2017, Juno and Sloan Kettering Institute for Cancer Research ("SKI") filed a complaint for patent infringement against Kite Pharma, Inc. ("Kite") in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The complaint alleged that Kite's Yescarta*product infringes certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 7,446,190 (the "'190 Patent") concerning CAR T cell technologies. Kite filed an answer and counterclaims asserting non-infringement and invalidity of the '190 Patent. In December 2019, following an eight-day trial, the jury rejected Kite's defenses, finding that Kite willfully infringed the '190 Patent and awarding to Juno and SKI a reasonable royalty consisting of a $585 million upfront payment and a 27.6% running royalty on Kite's sales of Yescarta*through the expiration of the '190 Patent in August 2024. In January 2020, Kite renewed its previous motion for judgment as a matter of law and also moved for a new trial, and Juno filed a motion seeking enhanced damages, supplemental damages, ongoing royalties, and prejudgment interest. In March 2020, the Court denied both of Kite's motions in their entirety. In April 2020, the Court granted in part Juno's motion and entered a final judgment awarding to Juno and SKI approximately $1.2 billion in royalties, interest and enhanced damages and a 27.6% running royalty on Kite's sales of Yescarta* from December 13, 2019 through the expiration of the '190 Patent in August 2024. In April 2020, Kite appealed the final judgment to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the Court held an oral hearing on July 6, 2021. In August 2021, a Federal Circuit panel reversed the jury verdict and district court decision and found the '190 Patent to be invalid. Juno and SKI plan to appeal the Federal Circuit panel's decision.

Eliquis- Europe
In November 2020 and January 2021, Sandoz Limited ("Sandoz") and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. ("Teva Limited"), respectively, filed lawsuits in the United Kingdom seeking revocation of the UK apixaban composition of matter patent and related Supplementary Protection Certificate. BMS subsequently filed counterclaims for infringement in both actions. A trial is scheduled to begin in early 2022.

There are similar lawsuits filed in France, Italy, the Netherlands, the Republic of Ireland, and Sweden seeking revocation of a composition of matter patent relating to Eliquis.

Additional infringement and invalidity actions involving Eliquispatents may be filed in various countries in Europe in the coming months.

Eliquis- U.S.
In 2017, BMS received Notice Letters from twenty-five generic companies notifying BMS that they had filed aNDAs containing paragraph IV certifications seeking approval of generic versions of Eliquis. As a result, twoEliquispatents listed in the FDA Orange Book are being challenged: the composition of matter patent claiming apixaban specifically and a formulation patent. In response, BMS, along with its partner Pfizer, initiated patent infringement actions under the Hatch-Waxman Act against all generic filers in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware in April 2017. In August 2017, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted patent term restoration to the composition of matter patent to November 2026, thereby restoring the term of the Eliquiscomposition of matter patent, which is BMS's basis for projected LOE. BMS settled with a number of aNDA filers. These settlements do not affect BMS's projected LOE for Eliquis. A trial with the remaining aNDA filers took place in late 2019. In August 2020, the U.S. District Court issued a decision finding that the remaining aNDA filers' products infringed the Eliquiscomposition of matter and formulation patents and that both Eliquispatents are not invalid. In September 2021, the Federal Circuit affirmed the lower court decision.

24


Plavix*- Australia
Sanofi was notified that, in August 2007, GenRx Proprietary Limited ("GenRx") obtained regulatory approval of an application for clopidogrel bisulfate 75mg tablets in Australia. GenRx, formerly a subsidiary of Apotex Inc., subsequently changed its name to Apotex ("GenRx-Apotex"). In August 2007, GenRx-Apotex filed an application in the Federal Court of Australia seeking revocation of Sanofi's Australian Patent No. 597784 (Case No. NSD 1639 of 2007). Sanofi filed counterclaims of infringement and sought an injunction. On September 21, 2007, the Federal Court of Australia granted Sanofi's injunction. A subsidiary of BMS was subsequently added as a party to the proceedings. In February 2008, a second company, Spirit Pharmaceuticals Pty. Ltd., also filed a revocation suit against the same patent. This case was consolidated with the GenRx-Apotex case. On August 12, 2008, the Federal Court of Australia held that claims of Patent No. 597784 covering clopidogrel bisulfate, hydrochloride, hydrobromide, and taurocholate salts were valid. The Federal Court also held that the process claims, pharmaceutical composition claims, and claim directed to clopidogrel and its pharmaceutically acceptable salts were invalid. BMS and Sanofi filed notices of appeal in the Full Court of the Federal Court of Australia ("Full Court") appealing the holding of invalidity of the claim covering clopidogrel and its pharmaceutically acceptable salts, process claims, and pharmaceutical composition claims. GenRx-Apotex appealed the holding of validity of the clopidogrel bisulfate, hydrochloride, hydrobromide, and taurocholate claims. On September 29, 2009, the Full Court held all of the claims of Patent No. 597784 invalid. In March 2010, the High Court of Australia denied a request by BMS and Sanofi to hear an appeal of the Full Court decision. The case was remanded to the Federal Court for further proceedings related to damages sought by GenRx-Apotex. BMS and GenRx-Apotex settled, and the GenRx-Apotex case was dismissed. The Australian government intervened in this matter seeking maximum damages up to 449 million AUD ($326 million), plus interest, which would be split between BMS and Sanofi, for alleged losses experienced for paying a higher price for branded Plavix*during the period when the injunction was in place. BMS and Sanofi dispute that the Australian government is entitled to any damages. A trial was concluded in September 2017. In April 2020, the Federal Court issued a decision dismissing the Australian government's claim for damages. In May 2020, the Australian government appealed the Federal Court's decision and an appeal hearing concluded in February 2021.

Pomalyst - Canada
Celgene received a Notice of Allegation in January 2020 from Natco Pharma (Canada) Inc. ("Natco Canada") notifying Celgene that it had filed an Abbreviated New Drug Submission ("aNDS") with Canada's Minister of Health with respect to certain of Celgene's Canadian patents. Natco Canada is seeking to market a generic version of Pomalystin Canada. In response, Celgene initiated a patent infringement action in the Federal Court of Canada. Natco Canada alleges that the asserted patents are invalid and/or not infringed. In September 2021, Celgene and Natco Canada entered into a confidential settlement agreement and the case was discontinued.

Celgene received a second Notice of Allegation in November 2020 from Natco Canada notifying Celgene that it had filed a second aNDS with Canada's Minister of Health with respect to certain of Celgene's Canadian patents. In response, Celgene initiated a patent infringement action in the Federal Court of Canada. Natco Canada alleges that the asserted patents are invalid and/or not infringed. In September 2021, Celgene and Natco Canada entered into a confidential settlement agreement and the case was discontinued.

Pomalyst- U.S.
Beginning in 2017, Celgene received Notice letters on behalf of, among others that settled in previous reporting periods, Hetero Labs Limited, Hetero Labs Limited Unit-V, Hetero Drugs Limited, Hetero USA, Inc. (collectively, "Hetero") and Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc. notifying Celgene that they had filed aNDAs containing paragraph IV certifications seeking approval to market generic versions of Pomalystin the U.S. In response, Celgene filed patent infringement actions against the companies in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey asserting certain FDA Orange Book-listed patents and the companies filed answers, counterclaims and declaratory judgment actions alleging that the asserted patents are invalid, unenforceable, and not infringed. These litigations were subsequently consolidated.

In February and March 2019, Celgene filed additional patent infringement actions in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against the companies asserting certain patents that are not listed in the FDA Orange Book and that cover polymorphic forms of pomalidomide, and the companies filed answers and/or counterclaims alleging that each of these patents is invalid and/or not infringed. These actions were consolidated with the earlier-filed actions against the companies. In March 2020, Celgene subsequently filed additional patent infringement actions in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against each of the companies asserting a newly-issued patent that is listed in the FDA Orange Book and that covers formulations comprising pomalidomide. The companies each filed responsive pleadings alleging that the patent is invalid and not infringed. The Court consolidated these additional litigations with the previously-consolidated litigations.

In September 2020, the Court granted Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc.'s motion to dismiss, and Celgene appealed that decision. The Federal Circuit held an oral hearing on Celgene's appeal on September 2, 2021.

In August 2021, Celgene entered into a confidential settlement agreement with Hetero, settling all outstanding claims in the litigation with Hetero.

25


In June 2019, Celgene received a Notice Letter from Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, Ltd. and Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, Inc. (together, "DRL") notifying Celgene that they had filed an aNDA containing paragraph IV certifications seeking approval to market a generic version of Pomalystin the U.S. In response, Celgene initiated a patent infringement action against DRL in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey asserting certain FDA Orange Book-listed patents, and DRL filed an answer and counterclaims alleging that each of the patents is invalid and/or not infringed. In March 2020, Celgene filed an additional patent infringement action in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against DRL asserting a newly-issued patent that is listed in the FDA Orange Book and that covers formulations comprising pomalidomide, which has been consolidated with the above DRL case. In April 2021, DRL received tentative approval from the FDA of its aNDA. The Court has not set a trial date in this consolidated action.

In February 2021, Celgene filed an additional patent infringement action in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against DRL asserting certain patents that are not listed in the FDA Orange Book and that cover polymorphic forms of pomalidomide. No trial date has been set for this matter.

Revlimid- U.S.
Celgene has received Notice Letters on behalf of, among others that settled in previous reporting periods, Hetero; Lupin Limited ("Lupin"); Hikma Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. ("Hikma"); Biocon Pharma Limited, Biocon Limited, and Biocon Pharma, Inc. ("Biocon"); and Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited and Torrent Pharma Inc. ("Torrent") notifying Celgene that they had filed aNDAs containing paragraph IV certifications seeking approval to market generic versions of Revlimidin the U.S. In response, Celgene filed patent infringement actions against the companies in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey asserting certain FDA Orange Book-listed patents as well as other litigations asserting other non-FDA Orange Book-listed patents against certain defendants, who have filed answers and/or counterclaims alleging that the asserted patents are invalid and/or not infringed. No trial date has been scheduled in any of these actions. In August and September 2021, Celgene entered into confidential settlement agreements with Torrent, Biocon and Hetero, settling all outstanding claims in the litigations with Torrent, Biocon and Hetero.

Sprycel- U.S.
In August 2021, BMS received a Notice Letter from Alembic Pharmaceuticals, Ltd notifying BMS that it had filed an aNDA containing paragraph IV certifications seeking approval of a generic version of Sprycelin the U.S. and challenging two FDA Orange Book-listed monohydrate form patents expiring in 2025 and 2026. In response, BMS filed a patent infringement action in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.

Zeposia- U.S.
On October 15, 2021, Actelion Pharmaceuticals LTD and Actelion Pharmaceuticals US, INC ("Actelion"), filed a complaint for patent infringement in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey against the Company for alleged infringement of U.S. Patent No. 10,251,867 (the "'867 Patent"). The Complaint alleges that the sale of Zeposiainfringes certain claims of the '867 Patent and Actelion is seeking damages and injunctive relief.

PRICING, SALES AND PROMOTIONAL PRACTICES LITIGATION

Plavix*State Attorneys General Lawsuits
BMS and certain Sanofi entities are defendants in consumer protection actions brought by the attorneys general of Hawaii and New Mexico relating to the labeling, sales and/or promotion of Plavix*. A trial in the Hawaii matter occurred in 2020. In February 2021, the Court issued a decision against Sanofi and BMS, imposing penalties in the total amount of $834 million, with $417 million attributed to BMS. Sanofi and BMS disagree with the decision and are appealing it. BMS remains confident in the merits of its case and its likelihood of success on appeal and BMS does not believe establishing a reserve is warranted for this matter. A trial in the New Mexico matter has been set for the court's April 2022 trial docket.

PRODUCT LIABILITY LITIGATION

BMS is a party to various product liability lawsuits. Plaintiffs in these cases seek damages and other relief on various grounds for alleged personal injury and economic loss. As previously disclosed, in addition to lawsuits, BMS also faces unfiled claims involving its products.

26


Abilify*
BMS and Otsuka are co-defendants in product liability litigation related to Abilify*. Plaintiffs allege Abilify*caused them to engage in compulsive gambling and other impulse control disorders. There have been over 2,500 cases filed in state and federal courts and additional cases are pending in Canada. The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation consolidated the federal court cases for pretrial purposes in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida. In February 2019, BMS and Otsuka entered into a master settlement agreement establishing a proposed settlement program to resolve all Abilify*compulsivity claims filed as of January 28, 2019 in the MDL as well as various state courts, including California and New Jersey. To date, approximately 2,700 cases, comprising approximately 3,900 plaintiffs, have been dismissed based on participation in the settlement program or failure to comply with settlement related court orders. In the U.S., less than 10 cases remain pending on behalf of plaintiffs, who either chose not to participate in the settlement program or filed their claims after the settlement cut-off date. There are eleven cases pending in Canada (four class actions, seven individual injury claims). Out of the eleven cases, only two are active (the class actions in Quebec and Ontario). Both class actions have now been certified and will proceed separately, subject to a potential further appeal of the Ontario class certification decision.

Byetta*
Amylin, a former subsidiary of BMS, and Lilly are co-defendants in product liability litigation related to Byetta*.This litigation involved approximately 590 separate lawsuits pending on behalf of approximately 2,250 active plaintiffs (including pending settlements), which include injury plaintiffs as well as claims by spouses and/or other beneficiaries, in various courts in the U.S. The majority of these cases have been brought by individuals who allege personal injury sustained after using Byetta*, primarily pancreatic cancer, and, in some cases, claiming alleged wrongful death. The majority of cases are pending in Federal Court in San Diego in an MDL or in a coordinated proceeding in California Superior Court in Los Angeles ("JCCP"). In April 2020 the defendants filed a motion for summary judgment based on federal preemption and a motion for summary judgment based on the absence of general causation evidence in the MDL and JCCP. Both motions were granted in March 2021 and April 2021, respectively. The orders will result in the dismissal of all claims alleging an injury of pancreatic cancer in the MDL and JCCP. Plaintiffs initially appealed the MDL order, but subsequently filed a motion to dismiss their appeal as to Amylin and Lilly. That motion to dismiss was granted on October 5, 2021 making the MDL decision final as to Amylin and Lilly. Plaintiffs may seek appeals in the JCCP. As of September 30, 2021, Plaintiffs' counsel have submitted dismissals with prejudice in exchange for a waiver of costs on behalf of approximately 1,086 plaintiffs (which includes injury plaintiffs and spouse/ beneficiary plaintiffs) in the MDL and JCCP alleging claims against Amylin and Lilly. Additional dismissals are anticipated. BMS sold Byetta* to AstraZeneca in February 2014 as part of BMS's global diabetes business divestiture and any additional liability to Amylin with respect to Byetta* is expected to be shared with AstraZeneca.

Onglyza*
BMS and AstraZeneca are co-defendants in product liability litigation related to Onglyza*. Plaintiffs assert claims, including claims for wrongful death, as a result of heart failure or other cardiovascular injuries they allege were caused by their use of Onglyza*. As of June 2021, claims are pending in state and federal court on behalf of approximately 270 individuals who allege they ingested the product and suffered an injury. In February 2018, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered all federal cases to be transferred to an MDL in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky. A significant majority of the claims are pending in the MDL, with others pending in a coordinated proceeding in California Superior Court in San Francisco ("JCCP"). In August 2021, the MDL and JCCP courts jointly heard evidence regarding the parties' motions to exclude general causation experts, and on September 24, 2021, the JCCP court granted defendants' motion to exclude plaintiffs' only general causation expert and largely denied plaintiffs' motions to exclude defendants' general causation experts. The parties await a ruling on the motions from the MDL court. As part of BMS's global diabetes business divestiture, BMS sold Onglyza*to AstraZeneca in February 2014 and any potential liability with respect to Onglyza*is expected to be shared with AstraZeneca.

SECURITIES LITIGATION

BMS Securities Class Action
Since February 2018, two separate putative class action complaints were filed in the U.S. District for the Northern District of California and in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against BMS, BMS's Chief Executive Officer, Giovanni Caforio, BMS's Chief Financial Officer at the time, Charles A. Bancroft and certain former and current executives of BMS. The case in California has been voluntarily dismissed. The remaining complaint alleges violations of securities laws for BMS's disclosures related to the CheckMate-026 clinical trial in lung cancer. In September 2019, the Court granted BMS's motion to dismiss, but allowed the plaintiffs leave to file an amended complaint. In October 2019, the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint. In September 2020, the Court granted BMS's motion to dismiss the amended complaint with prejudice. The plaintiffs appealed the Court's decision in October 2020. In October 2021, oral argument on the appeal was held in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Celgene Securities Class Action
Beginning in March 2018, two putative class actions were filed against Celgene and certain of its officers in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey (the "Celgene Securities Class Action"). The complaints allege that the defendants violated federal securities laws by making misstatements and/or omissions concerning (1) trials of GED-0301, (2) Celgene's 2020 outlook and projected sales of Otezla*, and (3) the new drug application for Zeposia. The Court consolidated the two actions and appointed a lead plaintiff, lead counsel, and co-liaison counsel for the putative class. In February 2019, the defendants filed a motion to dismiss plaintiff's amended complaint in full. In December 2019, the Court denied the motion to dismiss in part and granted the motion to dismiss in part (including all claims arising from alleged misstatements regarding GED-0301). Although the Court gave the plaintiff leave to re-plead the dismissed claims, it elected not to do so, and the dismissed claims are now dismissed with prejudice. In November 2020, the Court granted class certification with respect to the remaining claims. In December 2020, the defendants sought leave to appeal the Court's class certification decision, which was denied without prejudice in March 2021. No trial date has been scheduled.

In April 2020, certain Schwab management investment companies on behalf of certain Schwab funds filed an individual action in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey asserting largely the same allegations as the Celgene Securities Class Action against the same remaining defendants in that action. In July 2020, the defendants filed a motion to dismiss the plaintiffs' complaint in full. In March 2021, the Court granted in part and denied in part defendants' motion to dismiss consistent with its decision in the Celgene Securities Class Action.

The California Public Employees' Retirement System in April 2021, DFA Investment Dimensions Group Inc., on behalf of certain of its funds, and American Century Mutual Funds, Inc., on behalf of certain of its funds, in July 2021, and GIC Private Limited in September 2021, filed separate individual actions in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey asserting largely the same allegations as the Celgene Securities Class Action and the Schwab individual action against the same remaining defendants in those actions.

Contingent Value Rights Litigation
In June 2021, an action was filed against BMS in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York asserting claims of alleged breaches of a Contingent Value Rights Agreement ("CVR Agreement") entered into in connection with the closing of BMS's acquisition of Celgene Corporation in November 2019. The successor trustee under the CVR Agreement alleges that BMS breached the CVR Agreement by allegedly failing to use "diligent efforts" to obtain FDA approval of liso-cel (Breyanzi) before a contractual milestone date, thereby avoiding a $6.4 billion potential obligation to holders of the contingent value rights governed by the CVR Agreement and by allegedly failing to permit inspection of records in response to a request by the successor trustee. The successor trustee seeks damages in an amount to be determined at trial and other relief, including interest and attorneys' fees. BMS disputes the successor trustee's allegations and filed a Motion to Dismiss on July 23, 2021. All discovery is stayed until there is a decision on the Motion to Dismiss.

On October 6, 2021, alleged Celgene stockholders filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York asserting claims on behalf of a putative class of Celgene stockholders for violations of sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that the joint proxy statement dated February 22, 2019, seeking stockholder approval for the proposed merger transaction between Celgene and BMS, was materially false or misleading because it failed to disclose that allegedly BMS had no intention at the time to obtain FDA approval for liso-cel by a contractual milestone date, which was one of the conditions for payment to holders of Contingent Value Rights that would be issued by BMS in connection with the Celgene transaction. The complaint asserts claims against BMS and the members of its board of directors at the time of the joint proxy statement.

Nimbus
In August 2021, a complaint was filed by Nimbus Therapeutics, LLC and Nimbus Lakshmi, Inc. (collectively, "Nimbus") in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Celgene and BMS. The complaint relates to a warrant agreement for a tyrosine kinase 2 ("Tyk2") product between Celgene and Nimbus Lakshmi, Inc. Nimbus's complaint alleges breach of contract and violations of federal antitrust laws stemming from BMS's acquisition of Celgene in 2019 as well as actions taken by Celgene to exercise or assign its rights under the agreement. In addition to damages, Nimbus seeks a declaratory judgment. On the same day it filed this complaint, Nimbus also sent Celgene and BMS a letter purporting to terminate the relevant warrant agreement under the same theories set forth in its complaint. BMS disputes Nimbus's allegations and the validity of its attempts to terminate the warrant agreement. In September 2021, Celgene and BMS filed counterclaims against Nimbus, alleging breach of contract and tortious interference claims based on Nimbus's efforts to prevent Celgene from acting on its rights under the warrant agreement and similarly seeking damages and a declaratory judgment. On October 14, 2021, the Court granted Celgene and BMS's motion to preliminarily enjoin Nimbus from selling, transferring, encumbering, or otherwise disposing of, in part or in whole, the Tyk2 product until there is a final judgment on the merits. This case is scheduled to be ready for trial on February 17, 2022.

OTHER LITIGATION

Average Manufacturer Price Litigation
BMS is a defendant in a qui tam (whistleblower) lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, in which the U.S. Government declined to intervene. The complaint alleges that BMS inaccurately reported its average manufacturer prices to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to lower what it owed. Similar claims have been filed against other companies. In January 2020, BMS reached an agreement in principle to resolve this matter subject to the negotiation of a definitive settlement agreement and other contingencies. In March 2021, BMS finalized an agreement with the U.S. government and qui tam relator to resolve the claims asserted in the lawsuit. BMS has paid $75 million plus interest to the federal and state governments. On July 30, 2021, the Company finalized individual settlement agreements with all 50 states and the District of Columbia, resolving related state law claims. On September 27, 2021 and consistent with the terms of the settlement agreements, the case against the Company was dismissed.

HIV Medication Antitrust Lawsuits
BMS and two other manufacturers of HIV medications are defendants in related lawsuits pending in the Northern District of California. The lawsuits allege that the defendants' agreements to develop and sell fixed-dose combination products for the treatment of HIV, including Atripla*and Evotaz, violate antitrust laws. The currently pending actions, asserted on behalf of indirect purchasers, were initiated in 2019 in the Northern District of California and in 2020 in the Southern District of Florida. The Florida matter was transferred to the Northern District of California. In July 2020, the Court granted in part defendants' motion to dismiss, including dismissing with prejudice plaintiffs' claims as to an overarching conspiracy and plaintiffs' theories based on the alleged payment of royalties after patent expiration. Other claims, however, remain. In September and October 2020, two purported class actions have also been filed asserting similar claims on behalf of direct purchasers. In March 2021, the Court dismissed one of the direct purchaser cases and limited the claims of the remaining direct purchaser case to those arising in 2016 or later. However, the Court gave plaintiffs leave to amend their complaints, and one plaintiff filed an amended complaint on March 16, 2021. On September 22, 2021, two additional non-class action direct purchaser complaints were filed by a number of retail pharmacy and grocery store chains against BMS and two other manufacturers of HIV medications. These complaints make allegations similar to those raised in the other federal court cases and the New Mexico state court case described below. No trial date has been scheduled for the case filed by the retail pharmacies and grocery store chains. On October 13, 2021, BMS entered into a settlement agreement with the putative class of indirect purchasers. And on October 20, 2021, BMS reached an agreement in principle to settle claims filed by the putative class of direct purchasers. Both settlements are subject to court approval.

In February 2021, BMS and two other manufacturers of HIV medications were sued in State Court in New Mexico by the Attorney General of the State of New Mexico in a case alleging that the defendants' agreements to develop and sell various fixed-dose combination products for the treatment of HIV, including Atripla*, and agreements to settle certain patent litigation violate the antitrust laws of the State of New Mexico. No schedule has been set for the case.

Thalomidand RevlimidLitigations
Beginning in November 2014, certain putative class action lawsuits were filed against Celgene in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey alleging that Celgene violated various antitrust, consumer protection, and unfair competition laws by (a) allegedly securing an exclusive supply contract for the alleged purpose of preventing a generic manufacturer from securing its own supply of thalidomide active pharmaceutical ingredient, (b) allegedly refusing to sell samples of Thalomidand Revlimidbrand drugs to various generic manufacturers for the alleged purpose of bioequivalence testing necessary for aNDAs to be submitted to the FDA for approval to market generic versions of these products, (c) allegedly bringing unjustified patent infringement lawsuits in order to allegedly delay approval for proposed generic versions of Thalomidand Revlimid, and/or (d) allegedly entering into settlements of patent infringement lawsuits with certain generic manufacturers that allegedly have had anticompetitive effects. The plaintiffs, on behalf of themselves and putative classes of third-party payers, sought injunctive relief and damages. The various lawsuits were consolidated into a master action for all purposes. In March 2020, Celgene reached a settlement with the class plaintiffs. In October 2020, the Court entered a final order approving the settlement and dismissed the matter. That settlement did not resolve the claims of certain entities that opted out of the settlement.

In May 2018, Humana, Inc. ("Humana") filed a lawsuit against Celgene in the Pike County Circuit Court of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Humana's complaint alleges Celgene engaged in unlawful off-label marketing in connection with sales of Thalomidand Revlimidand asserts claims against Celgene for fraud, breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment and violations of New Jersey's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. The complaint seeks, among other things, treble and punitive damages, injunctive relief and attorneys' fees and costs. In April 2019, Celgene filed a motion to dismiss Humana's complaint, which the Court denied in January 2020. No trial date has been scheduled.

29


In March 2019, Humana filed a lawsuit against Celgene in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. Humana's complaint makes largely the same claims and allegations as were made in the class action litigation. The complaint purports to assert claims on behalf of Humana and its subsidiaries in several capacities, including as a direct purchaser and as an indirect purchaser, and seeks, among other things, treble and punitive damages, injunctive relief and attorneys' fees and costs. In May 2019, Celgene filed a motion to dismiss Humana's complaint, and the Court has stayed discovery pending adjudication of that motion. No trial date has been scheduled.

In March 2020, United HealthCare Services, Inc. ("UHS"), affiliates of which opted out of the first settlement in the Thalomidand RevlimidAntitrust Class Action Litigation, filed a lawsuit against Celgene in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. UHS's complaint makes largely the same claims and allegations as were made in the class action litigation in addition to certain claims regarding donations directed to copay assistance. The complaint purports to assert claims on behalf of UHS and its subsidiaries in several capacities, including as a direct purchaser and as an indirect purchaser, and seeks, among other things, treble and punitive damages, injunctive relief and attorneys' fees and costs. In December 2020, Celgene's motion to transfer the action to the District of New Jersey was granted and the case is now pending in that Court. In January 2021, Celgene filed a motion to dismiss UHS's complaint, which the Court administratively terminated in June 2021 pending its decision on Celgene's pending motion to dismiss Humana's complaint. No trial date has been scheduled.

In May 2020, Celgene filed suit against Humana Pharmacy, Inc. ("HPI"), a Humana subsidiary, in Delaware Superior Court. Celgene's complaint alleges that HPI breached its contractual obligations to Celgene by assigning claims to Humana that Humana is now asserting. The complaint seeks damages for HPI's breach as well as a declaratory judgment. In September 2020, HPI filed a motion to dismiss Celgene's complaint, which was denied in February 2021. A trial has been scheduled for March 2023.

In July 2020, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association ("BCBSA") sued Celgene and BMS on behalf of the Federal Employee Program in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. BCBSA's complaint makes largely the same claims and allegations as were made in the class action litigation. In April 2021, the parties' joint motion to transfer the action to the District of New Jersey was granted and the case is now pending in that Court. No trial date has been scheduled.

In August 2020, BCBSM Inc., Health Care Service Corporation ("HCSC"), Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Inc., and Molina Healthcare, Inc. ("Molina") sued Celgene and BMS in a Minnesota state court. The complaint makes largely the same claims and allegations as were made in the class action litigation but adds allegations on behalf of HCSC only as to alleged off-label marketing of Thalomidand Revlimid. In September 2020, Celgene and BMS removed the action to the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. In March 2021, that Court denied plaintiffs' motion to remand the action to state court, dismissed Molina for lack of personal jurisdiction and granted defendants' motion to transfer the action to the District of New Jersey. The case is now pending in the District of New Jersey. No trial date has been scheduled.

In January 2021, Cigna Corporation ("Cigna") sued Celgene and BMS in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Cigna's complaint makes largely the same claims and allegations as were made in the class action litigation. Cigna's complaint purports to assert claims on behalf of Cigna and its subsidiaries in several capacities, including as a direct purchaser and as an indirect purchaser. In May 2021, the parties' joint motion to transfer the action to the District of New Jersey was granted and the case is now pending in that Court. No trial date has been scheduled.

In May 2021, Molina sued Celgene and BMS in San Francisco Superior Court. Molina's complaint makes largely the same claims and allegations as were made in the class action litigation. In July 2021, Celgene and BMS removed the action to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California; motions to transfer to the District of New Jersey, to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction and to remand to the state court are currently pending. No trial date has been scheduled.

GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATIONS

Like other pharmaceutical companies, BMS and certain of its subsidiaries are subject to extensive regulation by national, state and local authorities in the U.S. and other countries in which BMS operates. As a result, BMS, from time to time, is subject to various governmental and regulatory inquiries and investigations as well as threatened legal actions and proceedings. It is possible that criminal charges, substantial fines and/or civil penalties, could result from government or regulatory investigations.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROCEEDINGS

As previously reported, BMS is a party to several environmental proceedings and other matters, and is responsible under various state, federal and foreign laws, including CERCLA, for certain costs of investigating and/or remediating contamination resulting from past industrial activity at BMS's current or former sites or at waste disposal or reprocessing facilities operated by third parties.

30


CERCLA Matters

With respect to CERCLA matters for which BMS is responsible under various state, federal and foreign laws, BMS typically estimates potential costs based on information obtained from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, or counterpart state or foreign agency and/or studies prepared by independent consultants, including the total estimated costs for the site and the expected cost-sharing, if any, with other "potentially responsible parties," and BMS accrues liabilities when they are probable and reasonably estimable. BMS estimated its share of future costs for these sites to be $79 million at September 30, 2021, which represents the sum of best estimates or, where no best estimate can reasonably be made, estimates of the minimal probable amount among a range of such costs (without taking into account any potential recoveries from other parties). The amount includes the estimated costs for any additional probable loss associated with the previously disclosed North Brunswick Township High School Remediation Site.

Item 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Management's discussion and analysis of results of operations and financial condition is provided as a supplement to and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to enhance the understanding of our results of operations, financial condition and cash flows.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company is a global biopharmaceutical company whose mission is to discover, develop and deliver innovative medicines that help patients prevail over serious diseases. Our principal strategy is to combine the resources, scale and capability of a pharmaceutical company with the speed and focus on innovation of the biotech industry. Our focus as a biopharmaceutical company is on discovering, developing and delivering transformational medicines for patients facing serious diseases in areas where we believe that we have an opportunity to make a meaningful difference: oncology (both solid tumors and hematology), immunology, cardiovascular and fibrosis. Our four strategic priorities are to drive enterprise performance, maximize the value of our commercial portfolio, ensure the long-term sustainability of our pipeline through combined internal and external innovation and establish our new culture and embed our people strategy. For further information on our strategy, see "Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Executive Summary-Strategy" in our 2020 Form 10-K. Refer to the Summary of Abbreviated Terms at the end of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for terms used throughout the document.

In 2021, we received 19 approvals for new medicines and additional indications and formulations of currently marketed medicines in major markets (the U.S., EU and Japan), including advancement in hematology malignancies through regulatory approvals of Breyanziand Abecma, the first approvals of our cell therapy portfolio. In support of our continued investment in our cell therapy portfolio, we are expanding our manufacturing capabilities through the construction of new state-of-the-art cell therapy manufacturing facilities in Devens, Massachusetts and Leiden, Netherlands. We continue to see momentum in our oncology portfolio with the approvals for both Opdivoand Opdivo+Yervoyin various indications. We continue to expand our portfolio in immunology with the FDA approval of Zeposiafor the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active UC and have an important opportunity for deucravacitinib, our TYK2 inhibitor, for the treatment of psoriasis and other diseases. We bolstered our leading cardiovascular franchise by adding mavacamten with the acquisition of MyoKardia in 2020. In March 2021, the FDA accepted the NDA for mavacamten for patients with symptomatic obstructive HCM with an assigned PDUFA goal date of January 28, 2022.

Our revenues increased by 9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 due to Eliquis, Revlimid, our IO and new product portfolios(1) and foreign exchange, partially offset by lower demand for Established Brands. The $1.61 change in GAAP EPS primarily resulted from specified items including, lower unwinding of inventory fair value adjustments and tax charges and higher equity investment fair value adjustments, partially offset by higher licensing, acquisition and impairment charges. After adjusting for specified items, non-GAAP EPS increased $0.69 as a result of higher revenues, partially offset by higher costs and expenses to support product launches and the broader portfolio.

Economic and Market Factors

COVID-19

In December 2019, COVID-19 emerged and subsequently expanded to a pandemic, resulting in international, federal, state and local public health and governmental authorities taking a number of actions to limit the spread of COVID-19 and address material disruptions in the U.S. and global economy. We have and continue to experience impacts on revenues from COVID-19 primarily due to lower new patient starts and patient visits, however, the pandemic has not significantly impacted our results of operations. It remains difficult to reasonably assess or predict the full extent of the negative impact that the COVID-19 pandemic may have on our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows. The future financial and operational impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on BMS will depend on developments such as the ultimate duration and recovery from the pandemic, government actions, impact on the U.S. and global economies, customer behavior changes and timing for resumption to our normal operations, among others. See the Company's risk factor relating to the COVID-19 pandemic included under "Part I-Item 1A. Risk Factors-COVID-19 Pandemic Risks-The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our business and could have a material adverse effect on us" in our 2020 Form 10-K.

As the COVID-19 pandemic affected global healthcare systems as well as major economic and financial markets, we adopted several procedures focused on ensuring the continued supply of our medicines to our patients and protecting the health, wellbeing and safety of our workforce:

Workplace and Community

We are maintaining our steadfast commitment to protecting our workforce, communities and patients, and ensuring the continued supply of life-saving medicines.
As a science-based company, we have a social responsibility to help reduce the spread of the virus. We are encouraged that approximately 94% of our employees in the U.S. and Puerto Rico are vaccinated against COVID-19, and as of November 1, 2021, vaccinations will be required for the majority of our colleagues in these regions. Although local regulations and conditions in other ex-U.S. jurisdictions may limit or restrict vaccine mandates, we are committed to implementing similar requirements in other markets wherever possible. Medical or religious accommodations are being considered on an individual basis.
As we return workers to the office, we will continue to assess the need to require weekly asymptomatic testing, mask wearing, and physical distancing of all colleagues onsite at our facilities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. We also keep our workforce safe by conducting regular deep cleaning of our sites.
Our manufacturing sites have remained open throughout the pandemic supported by on site personnel. We have taken a thoughtful and phased approach to bringing the rest of our workforce back to our 250 plus sites around the world, guided by the following principles:
Serving the needs of our patients and customers
Prioritizing health and safety
Following medical advice and government direction
Leading with compassion and flexibility
Modeling key learnings
No single approach fits for every site or market - our timelines and circumstances have varied across the globe. We are monitoring local conditions and government direction closely and adjusting our plans as appropriate.

Supply of Our Medicines and Support to Patients, Physicians and Advocacy Groups

An important element of keeping our promise to patients, their families and our healthcare providers is to ensure that our supply chain is robust and carefully managed. Our clinical and commercial supply chain teams have proactively used mitigation plans to ensure our products reach our markets, clinical sites and patients over the past months. Thanks to these efforts, we have not seen any disruption in our clinical or commercial supply chain due to the pandemic.
We recognize this remains a challenging time for everyone, and we know patients may be facing additional hardships. We expanded our existing patient support programs to help eligible unemployed patients in the U.S. who have lost their health insurance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The expanded program offers access to Bristol Myers Squibb medicines for free, including some of the company's most widely prescribed products, as well as those prescribed via telehealth services.
All of our U.S. and Puerto Rico personnel are required to be vaccinated to interact with customers, vendors and people at our clinical trial sites. We are also continuing to employ remote interactions as appropriate to ensure continued support for healthcare professionals, patient care, and access to our medicines across our global markets.

33


Our Clinical Trials and Research

We are working with health authorities and investigators to protect our trial participants and personnel at BMS and our clinical trial sites, while ensuring regulatory compliance and the integrity of our science.
We have provided clinical trial investigators with overarching principles and guidance regarding the conduct of BMS clinical trials worldwide in light of COVID-19, and are taking into account guidance from health authorities, where applicable.

Governmental Actions

Additional regulations in the U.S. and internationally may occur in the future, including healthcare reform initiatives, further changes to tax laws and pricing laws and potential importation restrictions, that may reduce our results of operations (including intangible asset impairment charges), operating cash flow, liquidity and financial flexibility. For example, Congress is currently considering a number of different proposals that would potentially: (i) allow the government to set prices for prescription drugs, including benchmarking those prices to prices paid in other countries, (ii) penalize manufacturers for price increases beyond inflationary measures, (iii) redesign the Part D benefit with new out of pocket limits for patients and new mandated discounts for manufacturers, (iv) increase the U.S. corporate tax rate, and (v) increase the U.S. taxation of our international business operations. The outcome of these Congressional actions remains highly uncertain. In addition, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development recently reached agreement on a global minimum tax pursuant to which countries are expected to implement changes to their tax laws and updates to international tax treaties. See risk factor on the Company's risk factors on these items included under "Part I-Item 1A. Risk Factors-Product, Industry and Operational Risks-Increased pricing pressure and other restrictions in the U.S. and abroad continue to negatively affect our revenues and profit margins" and "-Changes to tax regulations could negatively impact our earnings" in our 2020 Form 10-K.

FDA approval of Opdivoin combination with Cabometyx* for the first-line treatment of patients with advanced RCC.

The FDA has indicated it is undertaking an industry-wide review of indications that received accelerated approval and for which the confirmatory studies did not meet their primary endpoints. This is not specific to BMS, but we have two Opdivoindications that are subject to this review by the FDA in the third-line treatment of SCLC and second-line treatment of HCC. In consultation with the FDA, we have withdrawn the Opdivoindication in the third-line treatment of SCLC. Additionally, we decided to withdraw the Opdivoindication in the second-line treatment of HCC.

In September 2021, the Bristol Myers Squibb-Pfizer Alliance announced that the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed the U.S. District Court's August 2020 decision finding the composition of matter patent and formulation patent covering Eliquisvalid and infringed. Given the decision, the earliest that generic manufacturers are permitted to launch their apixaban products is April 1, 2028, subject to additional appeals and challenges.

Following the May 2021 expiration of regulatory exclusivity for Eliquisin Europe, generic manufacturers may seek to market generic versions of Eliquisin Europe prior to the expiration of our patents, which may lead to additional, infringement and invalidity actions involving our Eliquispatents being filed in various countries in Europe. We believe in the innovative science behind Eliquisand the strength of our intellectual property, which we will defend against infringement. Refer to "Item 1. Financial Statements-Note 17. Legal Proceedings and Contingencies-Intellectual Property" for further information.

Estimated End-User Demand

Pursuant to the SEC Consent Order described in our 2020 Form 10-K, we monitor inventory levels on hand in the U.S. wholesaler distribution channel and outside of the U.S. in the direct customer distribution channel. We are obligated to disclose products with levels of inventory in excess of one month on hand or expected demand, subject to a de minimisexception. Estimated levels of inventory in the distribution channel in excess of one month on hand for the following products were not material to our results of operations as of the dates indicated:

Abraxanehad 1.9 months of inventory on hand internationally in the distribution channel at June 30, 2021 compared to 0.5 months of inventory on hand at March 31, 2021 due to on-going business transition from a distributor and to avert a forecasted back order in Latin America.

In the U.S., we generally determine our months on hand estimates using inventory levels of product on hand and the amount of out-movement provided by our three largest wholesalers, which account for approximately 87% of total gross sales of U.S. products for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Factors that may influence our estimates include generic competition, seasonality of products, wholesaler purchases in light of increases in wholesaler list prices, new product launches, new warehouse openings by wholesalers and new customer stockings by wholesalers. In addition, these estimates are calculated using third-party data, which may be impacted by their recordkeeping processes.

Revlimid and Pomalystare distributed in the U.S. primarily through contracted pharmacies under the RevlimidREMS and PomalystREMS programs, respectively. These are proprietary risk-management distribution programs tailored specifically to provide for the safe and appropriate distribution and use of Revlimid and Pomalyst. Internationally, Revlimid and Imnovidare distributed under mandatory risk-management distribution programs tailored to meet local authorities' specifications to provide for the products' safe and appropriate distribution and use. These programs may vary by country and, depending upon the country and the design of the risk-management program, the product may be sold through hospitals or retail pharmacies.

43


Our non-U.S. businesses have significantly more direct customers. Information on available direct customer product level inventory and corresponding out-movement information and the reliability of third-party demand information varies widely. We limit our direct customer sales channel inventory reporting to where we can influence demand. When this information does not exist or is otherwise not available, we have developed a variety of methodologies to estimate such data, including using historical sales made to direct customers and third-party market research data related to prescription trends and end-user demand. Given the difficulties inherent in estimating third-party demand information, we evaluate our methodologies to estimate direct customer product level inventory and to calculate months on hand on an ongoing basis and make changes as necessary. Factors that may affect our estimates include generic competition, seasonality of products, price increases, new product launches, new warehouse openings by direct customers, new customer stockings by direct customers and expected direct customer purchases for governmental bidding situations. As such, all of the information required to estimate months on hand in the direct customer distribution channel for non-U.S. business for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 is not available prior to the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. We will disclose any product with levels of inventory in excess of one month on hand or expected demand for the current quarter, subject to a de minimisexception, in our next Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Cost of Products Sold

Cost of products sold decreased by $211 million in the third quarter 2021 and $1.3 billion year-to-date, primarily due to lower unwinding of inventory fair value adjustments ($359 million in the third quarter 2021 and $2.3 billion year-to-date), partially offset by higher Eliquisprofit sharing ($165 million in the third quarter 2021 and $560 million year-to-date). Year-to-date 2021 was impacted by impairment charges related to Inrebicregulatory approval milestones in the EU ($315 million) and foreign exchange.

Marketing, Selling and Administrative

Marketing, selling and administrative expenses increased by $82 million in the third quarter 2021 and $396 million year-to-date, primarily due to higher advertising and promotion expenses and higher costs to support new product launches.

Research and Development

Research and development expense increased $752 million in the third quarter 2021 and $1.4 billion year-to-date, primarily due to IPRD impairment charges, higher license and asset acquisition charges and higher costs associated with the broader portfolio. The third quarter 2021 included a $610 million IPRD impairment charge relating to an investigational compound being studied as a potential treatment for hematologic diseases. Year-to-date 2021 also included a $230 million IPRD impairment charge relating to an investigational compound being studied as a potential treatment for fibrotic diseases.

Amortization of Acquired Intangible Assets

Amortization of acquired intangible assets increased by $55 million in the third quarter 2021 and $444 million year-to-date, due to the timing of additional product approvals.

Other (Income)/Expense, Net

Other (income)/expense, net changed by $506 million in the third quarter 2021 and $625 million year-to-date, primarily due to fair value adjustments to contingent value rights and equity investments and other items discussed below.

Other (12) 23 (32) 2
Other (income)/expense, net $ (409) $ (915) $ (1,113) $ (488)

Contingent consideration primarily includes fair value adjustments resulting from the change in the traded price of contingent value rights issued with the Celgene acquisition. The contractual obligation to pay the contingent value rights terminated in January 2021 because the FDA did not approve liso-cel (JCAR017) by December 31, 2020.
Royalties and licensing income includes diabetes business royalties, Keytruda* royalties, Tecentriq* royalties, up-front licensing fees and milestones for products that have not obtained commercial approval. Refer to "Item 1. Financial Statements-Note 4. Divestitures, Licensing and Other Arrangements" for further information.
Equity investment gains includes fair value adjustments for investments that have readily determinable fair value and observable price changes for investments without readily determinable fair values resulting primarily from initial public offerings or third-party acquisitions of entities which we held an ownership interest. Our share of income from equity method investments are primarily due to fair value adjustments attributed to limited partnerships. Refer to "Item 1. Financial Statements-Note 9. Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements" for more information.
Integration expenses primarily includes consulting fees to implement Celgene integration initiatives related to processes and systems.
Provision for restructuring includes exit and other costs primarily related to the Celgene acquisition plan. We are on track to achieve the annualized pre-tax cost savings of approximately $3.0 billion through 2022 as detailed in the restructuring activities. Refer to "Item 1. Financial Statements-Note 6. Restructuring" for further information.
Investment income decreased year-to-date 2021 primarily due to lower interest rates.
Reversion excise tax resulted from the transfer of the retiree medical plan assets back to the Company in the first quarter 2020.
A loss on debt redemption resulted from the early redemption of $3.5 billion long-term debt obligations in the first quarter 2021.

Income Taxes
Three Months Ended September 30, Nine Months Ended September 30,
Dollars in Millions 2021 2020 2021 2020
Earnings Before Income Taxes $ 2,157 $ 2,257 $ 6,240 $ 3,580
Provision for Income Taxes 605 379 1,598 2,548
Effective Tax Rate 28.0 % 16.8 % 25.6 % 71.2 %
Impact of Specified Items 13.1 % (0.3) % 9.4 % 55.5 %
Effective Tax Rate Excluding Specified Items 14.9 % 17.1 % 16.2 % 15.7 %

The tax impact attributed to specified items was primarily due to low jurisdictional tax rates attributed to the unwinding of inventory fair value adjustments and intangible asset amortization, an IPRD impairment charge and contingent value rights fair value adjustments that are not taxable or deductible. The nine months ended September 30, 2020 includes an $853 million deferred tax charge resulting from an internal transfer of certain intangible assets to the U.S. and an additional $266 million GILTI tax charge upon finalization of the Otezla* divestiture tax consequences with tax authorities. The 2.2% reduction in the effective tax rate excluding specified items during the third quarter 2021 resulted primarily from changes in previously estimated annual effective tax rates in 2020 due to jurisdictional earnings mix. Refer to "Item 1. Financial Statements-Note 7. Income Taxes" for additional information.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our non-GAAP financial measures, such as non-GAAP earnings and related EPS information, are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses and other specified items that are evaluated on an individual basis. These items are adjusted after considering their quantitative and qualitative aspects and typically have one or more of the following characteristics, such as being highly variable, difficult to project, unusual in nature, significant to the results of a particular period or not indicative of future operating results. Similar charges or gains were recognized in prior periods and will likely reoccur in future periods including (i) amortization of acquired intangible assets, including product rights that generate a significant portion of our ongoing revenue and will recur until the intangible assets are fully amortized, (ii) unwind of inventory fair value adjustments, (iii) acquisition and integration expenses, (iv) restructuring costs, (v) accelerated depreciation and impairment of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets, (vi) R&D charges or other income resulting from up-front or contingent milestone payments in connection with the acquisition or licensing of third-party intellectual property rights, (vii) divestiture gains or losses, (viii) stock compensation resulting from accelerated vesting of Celgene awards and certain retention-related employee compensation charges related to the Celgene transaction, (ix) pension, legal and other contractual settlement charges, (x) equity investment and contingent value rights fair value adjustments, including fair value adjustments attributed to limited partnership equity method investments and (xi) amortization of fair value adjustments of debt acquired from Celgene in our 2019 exchange offer, among other items. Deferred and current income taxes attributed to these items are also adjusted for considering their individual impact to the overall tax expense, deductibility and jurisdictional tax rates. Certain other significant tax items are also excluded such as the impact resulting from internal transfer of intangible assets and the Otezla* divestiture in the second quarter 2020. We also provide international revenues for our priority products excluding the impact of foreign exchange. We calculate foreign exchange impacts by converting our current-period local currency financial results using the prior period average currency rates and comparing these adjusted amounts to our current-period results. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are included in Exhibit 99.2 to our Form 8-K filed on October 27, 2021 and are incorporated herein by reference.

Non-GAAP information is intended to portray the results of our baseline performance, supplement or enhance management, analysts and investors' overall understanding of our underlying financial performance and facilitate comparisons among current, past and future periods. For example, non-GAAP earnings and EPS information is an indication of our baseline performance before items that are considered by us to not be reflective of our ongoing results. In addition, this information is among the primary indicators that we use as a basis for evaluating performance, allocating resources, setting incentive compensation targets and planning and forecasting for future periods. This information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings or diluted EPS prepared in accordance with GAAP and may not be the same as or comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies due to possible differences in method and in the items being adjusted. We encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

We regularly assess our anticipated working capital needs, debt and leverage levels, debt maturities, capital expenditure requirements, dividend payouts, potential share repurchases and future investments or acquisitions in order to maximize shareholder return, efficiently finance our ongoing operations and maintain flexibility for future strategic transactions. We also regularly evaluate our capital structure to ensure financial risks, adequate liquidity access and lower cost of capital are efficiently managed, which may lead to the issuance of additional debt securities, the repurchase of debt securities prior to maturity or the issuance or repurchase of common stock. We believe that our existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable debt securities together with cash generated from operations and, if required, from the issuance of commercial paper will be sufficient to satisfy our anticipated cash needs for at least the next few years, including dividends, capital expenditures, milestone payments, working capital, restructuring initiatives, business development, repurchase of common stock, debt maturities of approximately $11.5 billion through 2024 as well as any debt repurchases through redemptions or tender offers.

We have a share repurchase program authorized by our Board of Directors allowing for repurchases of our shares. The specific timing and number of shares repurchased will be determined by our management at its discretion and will vary based on market conditions, securities law limitations and other factors. The share repurchase program does not obligate us to repurchase any specific number of shares, does not have a specific expiration date and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. The repurchases may be effected through a combination of one or more open market repurchases, privately negotiated transactions, transactions structured through investment banking institutions and other derivative transactions, relying on Rule 10b-18 and Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act. The outstanding share repurchase authority authorization under the program was $4.4 billion as of December 31, 2020. In January 2021, our Board of Directors approved an increase of $2.0 billion to the share repurchase authorization for our common stock, increasing the total outstanding share repurchase authorization to approximately $6.4 billion. We repurchased approximately 54 million shares of our common stock for $3.5 billion during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 reducing the remaining share repurchase capacity under the share repurchase program to approximately $2.9 billion as of September 30, 2021. Refer to "Item 1. Financial Statements-Note 15. Equity" for additional information.

Dividend payments were $3.3 billion in the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Dividends declared per common share were $1.47 in the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Dividend decisions are made on a quarterly basis by our Board of Directors.

Annual capital expenditures were approximately $750 million in 2020 and are expected to be approximately $1.0 billion in 2021 and $1.2 billion in 2022. We continue to make capital expenditures in connection with the expansion of our manufacturing capabilities, research and development and other facility-related activities.

Under our commercial paper program, we may issue a maximum of $5.0 billion unsecured notes that have maturities of not more than 366 days from the date of issuance. There were no commercial paper borrowings outstanding as of September 30, 2021.

In 2021, we purchased aggregate principal amount of $3.5 billion of certain of our debt securities for approximately $4.0 billion of cash in a series of tender offers and "make whole" redemptions and $2.0 billion of notes matured and were repaid.

As of September 30, 2021, we had four separate revolving credit facilities totaling $6.0 billion, which consisted of a 364-day $2.0 billion facility expiring in January 2022, a three-year $1.0 billion facility expiring in January 2022 and two five-year $1.5 billion facilities that were extended to September 2025 and July 2026, respectively. The revolving facilities provide for customary terms and conditions with no financial covenants, may be used to provide backup liquidity for our commercial paper borrowings and are extendable annually by one year on the anniversary date with the consent of the lenders. No borrowings were outstanding under revolving credit facilities at September 30, 2021 or December 31, 2020.

Our investment portfolio includes non-current marketable debt securities, which are subject to changes in fair value as a result of interest rate fluctuations and other market factors. Our investment policy establishes limits on the amount and time to maturity of investments with any institution. The policy also requires that investments are only entered into with corporate and financial institutions that meet high credit quality standards. Refer to "Item 1. Financial Statements-Note 9. Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements" for further information.

Credit Ratings

Our current long-term and short-term credit ratings assigned by Moody's Investors Service are A2 and Prime-1, respectively, with a stable long-term credit outlook, and our current long-term and short-term credit ratings assigned by Standard & Poor's are A+ and A-1, respectively with a negative long-term credit outlook. The long-term ratings reflect the agencies' opinion that we have a low default risk but are somewhat susceptible to adverse effects of changes in circumstances and economic conditions. The short-term ratings reflect the agencies' opinion that we have good to extremely strong capacity for timely repayment. Any credit rating downgrade may affect the interest rate of any debt we may incur, the fair market value of existing debt and our ability to access the capital markets generally.

Cash Flows

The following is a discussion of cash flow activities:
Nine Months Ended September 30,
Dollars in Millions 2021 2020
Cash flow provided by/(used in):
Operating activities $ 12,150 $ 10,697
Investing activities (939) 953
Financing activities (12,257) (4,634)

Operating Activities

Cash flow from operating activities represents the cash receipts and disbursements from all our activities other than investing and financing activities. Operating cash flow is derived by adjusting net earnings for noncontrolling interest, non-cash operating items, gains and losses attributed to investing and financing activities and changes in operating assets and liabilities resulting from timing differences between the receipts and payments of cash and when the transactions are recognized in our results of operations. As a result, changes in cash from operating activities reflect the timing of cash collections from customers and alliance partners; payments to suppliers, alliance partners and employees; customer discounts and rebates; and tax payments in the ordinary course of business. For example, annual employee bonuses are typically paid in the first quarter of the subsequent year.

The $1.5 billion change in cash flow from operating activities compared to 2020 was primarily due to lower tax payments of approximately $700 million and higher cash collections and timing of payments in the ordinary course of business.

Investing Activities

Cash requirements from investing activities include cash used for acquisitions, manufacturing and facility-related capital expenditures and purchases of marketable securities with original maturities greater than 90 days at the time of purchase, proceeds from business divestitures (including royalties), the sale and maturity of marketable securities, sale of equity investments and upfront and contingent milestones from licensing arrangements.

The $1.9 billion change in cash flow from investing activities compared to 2020 was primarily attributable to changes in the amount of marketable debt securities held of $2.1 billion, higher licensing and asset acquisition payments of approximately $700 million in 2021, partially offset by higher proceeds from sales of equity investments of approximately $1.0 billion.

Financing Activities

Cash requirements from financing activities include cash used to pay dividends, repurchase common stock and repay long-term debt and other borrowings reduced by proceeds from the exercise of stock options and issuance of long-term debt and other borrowings.

The $7.6 billion change in cash flow from financing activities compared to 2020 was primarily due to higher debt repayments of $4.5 billion, including a series of tender offer and "make whole" redemptions, and higher share repurchases of $3.5 billion in 2021.

Product and Pipeline Developments

Our R&D programs are managed on a portfolio basis from early discovery through late-stage development and include a balance of early-stage and late-stage programs to support future growth. Our late stage R&D programs in Phase III development include both investigational compounds for initial indications and additional indications or formulations for marketed products. The following are the developments in our marketed products and our late-stage pipeline since the start of the third quarter:
Product Indication Date Developments
Opdivo Bladder August 2021
Announced FDA approval for Opdivofor the adjuvant treatment of patients with urothelial carcinoma who are at high risk of recurrence after undergoing radical resection, regardless of prior neoadjuvant chemotherapy, nodal involvement or PD-L1 status. The approval is based on the Phase III CheckMate-274 trial.
Gastric and Esophageal Cancers October 2021
Announced EC approval of Opdivoin combination with fluoropyrimidine- and platinum-based combination chemotherapy for the first-line treatment of adult patients with HER2-negative advanced or metastatic gastric, gastroesophageal junction, or esophageal adenocarcinoma whose tumors express PD-L1 with a combined positive score ≥ 5.

September 2021
Ono, our alliance partner for Opdivoin Japan, announced that the companies have submitted supplemental applications in Japan for Opdivoin combination with Yervoy and Opdivoin combination with chemotherapy for the first-line treatment of unresectable, advanced or recurrent esophageal cancer, for a partial change in approved items of the manufacturing and marketing approvals in Japan. The applications are based on results from the Phase III CheckMate-648 trial.
August 2021
Announced that the EMA validated its MAA for both Opdivoin combination with Yervoyand Opdivoin combination with fluoropyrimidine- and platinum-containing chemotherapy as first-line treatments for adult patients with unresectable advanced, recurrent or metastatic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Validation of these applications confirm that the submissions are complete and begins the EMA's centralized review process. The applications are based on results from the pivotal Phase III CheckMate-648 trial.
Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma September 2021
Announced three-year data from the CheckMate-743 trial that demonstrated a durable survival benefit with first-line treatment with Opdivoplus Yervoycompared to platinum-based standard-of-care chemotherapy in patients with unresectable malignant pleural mesothelioma, regardless of histology.
RCC September 2021
Announced that Opdivoplus Yervoycontinued to demonstrate durable, long-term survival in the Phase III CheckMate-214 trial, with a five-year survival rate of 48% in patients with previously untreated advanced or metastatic RCC. After a median follow-up of 67.7 months, Opdivoplus Yervoymaintained superior overall survival and response benefits versus sunitinib in both patients with intermediate- and poor-risk prognostic factors, the primary endpoint population, and across all randomized patients.
SCCHN July 2021
Announced an update on the Phase III CheckMate-651 trial comparing Opdivoplus Yervoyto the EXTREME regimen (cetuximab, cisplatin/carboplatin and fluorouracil) as a first-line treatment in platinum-eligible patients with recurrent or metastatic SCCHN. Although OpdivoplusYervoyshowed a clear, positive trend towards overall survival in patients whose tumors express PD-L1 with a combined positive score ≥ 20, the study did not meet its primary endpoints.
Orencia aGvHD August 2021
Announced that the FDA has accepted the sBLA for Orenciafor the prevention of moderate to severe aGvHD in patients 6 years of age and older receiving unrelated donor hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The FDA granted the application Priority Review and assigned a PDUFA goal date of December 23, 2021. The sBLA is based on results from the Phase II ABA2 trial and a registry trial based on real world evidence.
Zeposia UC October 2021
Received a positive CHMP opinion of Zeposiafor the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active UC who have had an inadequate response, lost response, or were intolerant to either conventional therapy or a biologic agent. The opinion is based on data from the Phase III True North trial.
MS October 2021
Announced interim results from the Phase III open-label extension trial DAYBREAK, demonstrating the long-term efficacy and safety profile of Zeposiain patients with relapsing forms of MS. In the DAYBREAK extension study, safety was consistent with prior findings and no new safety signals emerged during the reporting period with long-term use of Zeposia. Treatment with Zeposiademonstrated a low annualized relapse rate of 0.103. At months 36 and 48, 75% and 71% of participants were relapse-free and 3- and 6-month confirmed disability progression was observed in 13.9% and 11.4% of participants in the trial, respectively.
Abecma Multiple Myeloma August 2021
Announced EC approval for Abecmafor the treatment of adult patients with relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma, who have received at least three prior therapies, including an immunomodulatory agent, a proteasome inhibitor and an anti-CD38 antibody and have demonstrated disease progression on the last therapy. The approval is based on results from the pivotal KarMMa study.
deucravacitinib UC October 2021 Announced the Phase II LATTICE-UC study evaluating deucravacitinib compared to placebo in moderate to severe UC did not meet the primary efficacy endpoint of clinical remission at Week 12, nor secondary efficacy endpoints. The safety profile of deucravacitinib was consistent with previously reported studies in psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, and no new safety signals were observed. The potential of deucravacitinib in UC continues to be evaluated in IM011-127, a second Phase II trial that also includes a higher dose.
mavacamten Obstructive HCM October 2021 Announced that the EMA validated its MAA for mavacamten for the treatment of patients with obstructive HCM. Validation of the application confirm that the submission is complete and begins the EMA's centralized review process.

September 2021 Announced that the FDA has accepted for priority review the BLA for the fixed dose combination of relatlimab and nivolumab for the treatment of adult and pediatric patients with unresectable or metastatic melanoma. The FDA assigned a PDUFA goal date of March 19, 2022. The BLA submission was based on the Phase II/III RELATIVITY-047 trial.

Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of financial statements requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses. Our critical accounting policies are those that significantly impact our financial condition and results of operations and require the most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. Because of this uncertainty, actual results may vary from these estimates. For a discussion of our critical accounting policies, refer to "Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in our 2020 Form 10-K. There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. For information regarding the impact of recently adopted accounting standards, refer to "Item 1. Financial Statements-Note.1 Basis of Presentation and Recently Issued Accounting Standards."

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (including documents incorporated by reference) and other written and oral statements we make from time to time contain certain "forward-looking" statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. You can identify these forward-looking statements by the fact they use words such as "should," "could," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "target," "may," "project," "guidance," "intend," "plan," "believe," "will" and other words and terms of similar meaning and expression in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance. One can also identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. Such forward-looking statements are based on historical performance and current expectations and projections about our future financial results, goals, plans and objectives and involve inherent risks, assumptions and uncertainties, including internal or external factors that could delay, divert or change any of them in the next several years, and could cause our future financial results, goals, plans and objectives to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, the statements. These statements are likely to relate to, among other things, our goals, plans and objectives regarding our financial position, results of operations, cash flows, market position, product development, product approvals, sales efforts, expenses, performance or results of current and anticipated products, our business development strategy generally and in relation to our ability to realize the projected benefits of our acquisitions of Celgene and MyoKardia, the full extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations and the development and commercialization of our products, potential laws and regulations to lower drug costs, market actions taken by private and government payers to manage drug utilization and contain costs, the expiration of patents or data protection on certain products, including assumptions about our ability to retain patent exclusivity of certain products, and the outcome of contingencies such as legal proceedings and financial results. No forward-looking statement can be guaranteed. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, our 2020 Form 10-K, particularly under the section "Item 1A. Risk Factors," and our other filings with the SEC, include additional information on the factors that we believe could cause actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statement.
