The company operates as a single segment but classifies its product portfolio in two subcategories: prioritized brands and established brands.

  • Prioritized brands include products like Eliquis, Opdivo, Orencia, Empliciti, Sprycel, and Yervoy. The revenues for these brands totaled $3.90 billion in 2Q17, driven by strong sales.
  • Established brands include products from the Hepatitis C and Hepatitis B portfolio and HIV portfolio as well as other established drugs. Revenues for established brands stood at $1.24 billion in 2Q17, a fall from the $1.94 billion in 2Q16, due to lower sales of major drugs in established brands.
