Zoetis Inc discovers, develops, manufactures & commercializes animal health medicines & vaccines for livestock & companion animals. Its products include anti-infectives, vaccines, parasiticides, medicated feed additives & other pharmaceutical products.

Zoetis Inc was incorporated in Delaware in July 2012. It is engaged in the discovery, development, manufacture and commercialization of animal health medicines and vaccines, with a focus on both livestock and companion animals. It has a diversified business, marketing products across eight core species: cattle, swine, poultry, sheep and fish (collectively, livestock) and dogs, cats and horses (collectively, companion animals); and within five product categories: anti-infectives, vaccines, parasiticides, medicated feed additives and other pharmaceuticals. The Company organizes and operates its business in two geographic regions: the United States (U.S.) and International. Within each of these operating segments, it offers a diversified product portfolio for both livestock and companion animal customers. The Company directly markets its products in approximately 45 countries across North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and South America. The Company sells its livestock products directly to a diverse set of livestock producers, including beef and dairy farmers as well as pork, poultry and aquaculture operations, and to veterinarians, third-party veterinary distributors and retail outlets that typically then sell the products to livestock producers. It sells the companion animal products to veterinarians or to third-party veterinary distributors that typically then sell its products to veterinarians, and in each case veterinarians then typically sell its products to pet owners. Its primary competitors include animal health medicines and vaccines companies such as Merck Animal Health, the animal health division of Merck & Co., Inc.; Merial, the animal health division of Sanofi S.A.; Elanco, the animal health division of Eli Lilly and Company; Bayer Animal Health, the animal health division of Bayer AG; and Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, the animal health division of Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH. In addition, it competes with hundreds of other animal health product producers throughout the world. It is subject to various federal, state, local and foreign environmental, health and safety laws and regulations.

Guru Investment Theses on Zoetis Inc

Bill Ackman Comments on Zoetis Inc. - May 11, 2016

Zoetis (NYSE:ZTS) is the only large, independent, publicly traded animal health company in the world. The company has a market capitalization of ~$23 billion and $5 billion in revenue. The Pershing Square funds currently own a 5.0% economic stake in the company, down from 8.6% as a result of a recent block sale.

During the first quarter, adjusted revenue grew 6%. The Companion Animal segment was the star of the quarter, with growth of 20% driven by new product launches. Livestock revenue growth was nominal at 1% due to competition in U.S. swine products and mild U.S. weather.

Gross margins and SG&A spending were both better than expectations. Management continues to execute well on the cost efficiency program announced in May 2015. SG&A fell by 6% YoY, despite six extra days in the quarter. Operating margins expanded ~500 bps from the prior year. Management now believes savings from the efficiency program will exceed the original $300 million targeted when the program was announced last May. All savings from this program are expected to be realized by 2017.

Good performance and favourable FX allowed management to increase earnings guidance by $0.10/share in 2016 and $0.06/share in 2017.

We executed a block sale of 16.85 million shares on May 9th, reducing our ownership of the company from 8.6% to 5.0%. We continue to be pleased with management’s performance and have high expectations for the company. As with CP and Mondelez, we reduced our position for portfolio management reasons.

Bill Doyle, who has represented Pershing Square on the ZTS board since February 4, 2015, will not stand for re-election at the annual meeting on May 12th. We no longer feel that our presence on the board is required as the company continues to generate strong progress as evidenced by first quarter results.

From Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio)'s first quarter shareholder letter.

Bill Ackman Comments on Zoetis Inc. - Dec 16, 2015

Zoetis, Inc. (NYSE:ZTS)

On November 3rd, Zoetis reported another strong quarter. Operational revenue grew 9% and operational adjusted net income grew 31%, excluding the impact of foreign exchange. Growth was driven by strong performance in the U.S. livestock business, the integration of the Abbott Animal Health business that was acquired in the first quarter of 2015, and growth in recently launched products in the companion animal sector. Reported revenue of $1.2 billion was flat year-on-year, while reported EPS of $0.38 represented a 15% increase over third quarter 2014 reported EPS.

Adjusted diluted net income per share, which excludes purchase accounting adjustments and certain one-time costs, was $0.50. This is an increase of 22% compared to third quarter 2014, and significantly in excess of the Wall Street consensus adjusted EPS estimate of $0.40 per share.

Management continues to demonstrate its expense discipline. Operating expenses grew 3% while operational revenue grew 9% excluding the impact of foreign exchange. Management reaffirmed its commitment to meet or exceed the previously announced $300 million expense reduction target by 2017.

During the quarter, the company announced the $765 million acquisition of PHARMAQ, the global leader in vaccines for aquaculture, or farmed fish. Aquaculture is the fastest growing segment of the global animal health industry and is the only segment in which Zoetis had limited presence. The PHARMAQ acquisition provides a market-leading portfolio of vaccines and pharmaceuticals for farmed fish as well as a late-stage development pipeline anticipated to deliver important new vaccines and next-generation parasiticides in the near term. PHARMAQ is a good strategic fit with Zoetis, and provides another pillar for long-term growth. The company believes this acquisition will enjoy a long period of sustainable growth in revenue, profits, and cash flow when added into its business.

From Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio)'s Pershing Square Holdings third quarter 2015 letter to shareholders.

Bill Ackman Comments on Zoetis Inc. - Sep 11, 2015

Zoetis, Inc. (NYSE:ZTS)



Second quarter earnings exceeded analyst expectations. Management raised 2015 earnings guidance modestly for the year. Revenue growth in the quarter was impressive. Organic revenue adjusted for foreign exchange was 9%. Approximately 80% of revenue growth in the quarter is attributable to volume growth of recently launched and existing products. Operating expenses, adjusted for foreign exchange, rose only 1%, despite an 11% increase in revenue. Management announced significant progress in its R&D portfolio, including advances in new product innovation and improvements to existing products.



In May, Zoetis announced a large cost restructuring program. Management has begun to take its first steps towards achieving this plan and believes it is on track to deliver its target of at least $300 million of savings, which will increase Zoetis’ operating profit margin from 25% in 2014 to 34% in 2017 according to the company’s second quarter conference call. Thereafter, management expects a combination of continued cost discipline, strong revenue growth, and execution of management’s supply chain efficiency program will result in continuing improvements in operating profit margins.
