Outlook 2019 confirmed

The acquisition of Ra Pharma will not impact UCB’s 2019 financial guidance. The acquisition would be dilutive to UCB’s mid-term earnings level due to additional planned R&D investments. As a result, the mid-term target of UCB reaching a REBITDA ratio (to revenue) of 31% would move to 2022 from 2021 as previously guided.

2019 revenue reporting to reach approximately

€ 4.6-4.7 billion 

Recurring EBITDA [Operating profit adjusted for amortisation, depreciation, impairment charges, restructuring expenses and other exceptional income and expenses.] in the range of

27-29% of revenue 

Core earnings per share are therefore expected in the range of

€ 4.40-4.80

based on an average of
188 million shares outstanding
