2020 segment business P&L (Appendix 2 of the quarterly earnings press release) reflecting the following changes.
• The costs related to projects led by the new Digital organization will be centrally allocated. Approximately €350million of Information Technology expenses will be reported in the “Others” segment that were previously allocated to Pharmaceuticals, Consumer Healthcare and Vaccines segments.
• The CHC segment will include approximately €30million of expenses previously mainly allocated to Pharmaceuticals to reflect the ongoing implementation of the standalone structure.
Restated business P&L following the sale of the equity investment in Regeneron
On May 29, 2020, Sanofi announced the sale of its equity investment in Regeneron, excluding 400,000 Regeneron shares, which Sanofi is retaining, for total gross proceeds amounting to $11.7 billion.
As a result of this sale, Sanofi’s Q2 2020 non-GAAP business net income statement will exclude the effect of the equity method of accounting for the Regeneron investment in the share of profit/loss of associates and joint ventures line. The effect of the equity method of accounting for the Regeneron investment up to May 29, 2020 will be presented as a reconciling item between IFRS net income and business net income. In addition, Sanofi has restated its previously reported business net income statement for 2019 by quarter and for Q1 2020.
Please find below an Excel file reflecting quarterly 2019 and Q1 2020 restated business P&Ls.
Updated Appendix 1 of all 2019 quarterly earnings press releases reflecting the new GBU structure and product reclassifications / 2019 business P&L including the effect of FRS 16 and some expenses reported differently
As previously communicated, Sanofi has changed the organizational structure of its Global Business Units (GBU) and is now structured with three core GBUs to support the company’s strategy:
• Specialty Care (Dupixent®, Multiple Sclerosis/Neurology/Other Immunology & Inflammation, Rare Disease, Oncology, Rare Blood Disorder);
• General Medicines (Diabetes, Established Products);
Consumer Healthcare (CHC) will be a standalone business unit (ongoing process) with integrated R&D and manufacturing functions.
In order to align with the new structure, for reporting purposes the new geographic breakdown will be: Europe(1), United States and Rest of the World.
The new GBU structure incorporates certain product reclassifications in:
• Oncology. A number of older oncology products(2) have been transferred to Established Products within the General Medicines GBU;
• Cardiovascular. The cardiovascular franchise(3) has been transferred to Established products within the General Medicines GBU;
• CHC. Some CHC products have been transferred to the General Medicines GBU and vice versa, resulting in an almost neutral sales impact to the two business units;
• Rare Disease. The endocrinology products(4) have been transferred to Established products within the General Medicines GBU.

IFRS 16 standard is effective as of 1 January 2019. The impact on business EPS is -2 cents in 2019.

2018 sales with new GBU structure
As previously communicated, Sanofi changed the organizational structure of two of its Global Business Units (GBU) to provide greater focus on its operations. The company created a new Primary Care GBU that combines the product portfolios of Sanofi’s existing Diabetes and Cardiovascular (DCV) GBU with Established Products in mature markets, which was part of the General Medicines & Emerging Markets (GEM) GBU. The new Primary Care unit will focus exclusively on mature markets. In addition, Sanofi created a second new global business unit called China & Emerging Markets. The two new GBUs were launched at the beginning of 2019.
