    the economic and debt crisis has cast ashadow over europe and the united statesfor more than four years, and it signicantlyaffected 2012, as well. Despite major con-certed efforts, the end of this troublingperiod is not yet in sight.

    Even the regions and markets that have sofar escaped the crisis are now in danger ofbeing affected by its socioeconomic sideeffects. Protectionist market interventions,monetary expansion and over-regulation all signs of reactive politics are increasingand can lead to a deepening of structuraldecits. Persistent weak growth is likely,despite low interest rates and monetary ex-pansion. High levels of public debt make theproblemworse inmany countries, and thereis no certainty as to whether pension fundsand social welfare institutions will be able tomeet their promises in the medium term.

    despite this ominousbackdrop,Novartis onceagain posted strong results in 2012. This isall the more remarkable given that we were

    forced to deal with increased price pressure,the patent expiration for our successful heartdrug Diovan, and persistent turbulence onnancial and currency markets. moreover,quality problems at sandoz and consumerHealth led to production downtime, whichalso affected results.

    Despite these far-reaching events, Novartiswas able to provide 1.2 billion patients world-wide with medical care in 2012 exceedingthe record-setting level of previous years thanks to recently launched products and thefurther expansion in fast-growing markets.

    The Groups net sales reached UsD 56.7 bil-lion (3%, unchanged in constant curren-cies), while net income increased by 4% (7%in constant currencies) to UsD 9.6 billion.

    The pharmaceuticals Division (UsD 32.2 bil-lion, 2% in constant currencies) rejuvenatedits product portfolio with the help of recentlylaunched products such as leukemia drugTasigna and ophthalmic medicine Lucentis,which helped balance the Diovan patent loss.moreover, groundbreaking therapies suchas Gilenya and Afinitor which in 2012posted revenue growth in constant curren-cies of 147% and 85%, respectively areexpected to generate sustainable growth inthe future.
