Reasons to Invest
By every measure, 2002 was another outstanding year for Pfizer.
Revenue growth was led by the Company's human pharmaceutical operations, which achieved fourth-quarter revenues of $8.253 billion (up 15 percent) and full-year revenues of $28.288 billion (up 12 percent).
Thanks to the hard work and talent of the people of Pfizer, the company has achieved double-digit revenue growth, and even stronger earnings growth, while continuing to fund the world's largest private discovery and development efforts seeking new and better prescription medicines.
Pfizer met the needs of millions of patients around the world as they market eight of the world's 30 largest-selling medicines, and four of the top 10. On a stand-alone basis, Pfizer is exceptionally well positioned to maintain a strong momentum in 2003 and beyond. The acquisition of Pharmacia will give them an even stronger global platform for discovering, developing, manufacturing, and marketing innovative medicines and consumer products."
