Financial Outlook


Lundbeck’s financial results for 2019 are expected to be driven by the continued strong growth of Abilify Maintena®, Brintellix®/ Trintellix®, Northera® and Rexulti® which partially can offset the continued erosion of mature products such as Onfi®.
Lundbeck’s total revenue is expected to reach between DKK 16.1 billion and 16.7 billion in 2019 and EBIT is expected to be in the range between DKK 4.2 billion and 4.6 billion. Lundbeck’s main currencies are the USD, CNY and CAD. The financial guidance is based on currency levels as per end-January 2019 and includes an expected hedging effect of a loss of DKK 150-200 million. The financial guidance is summarized below:


DKK  2018 actual 2019 guidance
Revenue 18,117m 16.3-16.7bn
EBIT 5,301m 4.2-4.6bn
Tax rate 26.1% 26-28%
