Mylan posts better-than-expected Q3 profit

Global pharmaceutical company Mylan N.V. (MYL) reported 100% surge in earnings for the third quarter helped by lower costs and expenses as well as a drop in income tax provision. The bottom line came in ahead of analysts’ expectations while the top line missed consensus estimates. Following this, the stock inched up over 6% in the after-market session.

Net income soared 100% to $176.7 million and earnings surged 113% to $0.34 per share. Adjusted earnings increased 14% to $1.25 per share.

A dip in sales from existing products hurt the total revenues that declined by 4% to $2.86 billion. The decrease in total revenues included lower net sales in the North America segment.
