ELI LILLY AND COMPANY (NYSE:LLY) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition

On December 19, 2018, the Company issued a press release updating financial guidance for 2018, reaffirming financial expectations through the remainder of the decade, and announcing financial guidance for 2019. In addition, on the same day, the Company held a teleconference for analysts and media to discuss this guidance. The teleconference was web cast on the Company’s web site. The press release is attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures that differ from financial statements reported in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and the attached press release includes a description of certain non-GAAP items that may affect our financial expectations for 2018 and 2019. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures adjust reported results to exclude amortization of intangibles and items that are typically highly variable, difficult to predict, and/or of a size that could have a substantial impact on the Company’s reported operations for a period. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors. Among other things, they may help investors evaluate the Company’s ongoing operations. They can assist in making meaningful period-over-period comparisons and in identifying operating trends that would otherwise be masked or distorted by the items subject to the adjustments. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate the performance of the business, including to allocate resources and to evaluate results relative to incentive compensation targets. Investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The information in this Item 2.02, including Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as otherwise expressly stated in such filing.
