31 January 2020 -

Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN), a United States-based biopharmaceutical company, announced on Thursday, its financial results for 2019.

The company reported total revenues at USD23.4bn in 2019, down 2% compared to the year-ago period.

The firm generated USD8.5bn of free cash flow for 2019 compared to USD10.6bn in 2018.

GAAP EPS increased 2% to USD12.88 for the full year driven by lower weighted-average shares outstanding, offset partially by lower operating income.
