Bayer’s earnings drop due to contraceptive lawsuits

Posted on August 2nd, 2012 No Comments

Chemical and drug company Bayer AG published its its second-quarter earnings earlier this week and revealed that its profits had dropped nearly 34 percent compared to this time last year.

According to the Associated Press, Bayer’s earnings were hit due to one-time charges, such as setting aside money to settle lawsuits concerning dangerous side effects of birth control pills. From April-June this year, Bayer earned $606 million. Last year, it earned more than $907 million.

Bayer would have made $936 million in the second quarter had they not saved more than $602 million for Yaz and Yasmin settlements. Despite a slump in profits, the drug company’s revenue increased by $109 million from last year.

Heart disease is currently the leading cause of death for Americans and stroke is the 4th leading cause. These levels are very concerning because they are much too high. Now is the time to learn how to improve your heart health and reduce strokes.

Medicare has now introduced the Million Hearts campaign that is aiming to prevent at least 1 million heart attacks in the next five year period. Heart disease can mean many different conditions and the most common is coronary heart disease.
