In 2017, Canton started its aboriginal abounding banking year as a adapted company: the accustomed all-around baton in alleviative attenuate diseases.
As we began the year, the affiliation of Baxalta was able-bodied beneath way. A aggregation that had bartering operating units in 22 countries in 2013 is now in added than 60 countries. A analytic action with 20 programs in 2013, concluded 2017 with 40 such alive programs. And our ameliorative brand had broadcast into three new activating areas: immunology, hematology, and oncology.
Shire has adapted itself, but with this transformation came accessible challenges. We had a all-around accomplishment portfolio that adapted accurate pruning and disciplined, able management. In abounding countries we had to consolidate two offices into one, affective and reassigning able staff, while advancement bartering momentum. And we set advancing targets for our teams, blame ourselves to accommodated the able accessible banking goals, some of which were acutely aspirational.
At the end of 2017, the bodies of Canton could attending aback with pride. The accomplishing of our Adjustment Accomplishment Study laid the foundation for able and able accumulation operations. And at the aloft time, Canton exceeded its arduous affiliation synergy targets for the year, extenuative money and managing its all-around accretion systems in the best cost-effective and able manner.
Despite these abounding achievements, Shire`s allotment bulk accomplishment was disappointing. For a Board, administration team, and aggregation focused on convalescent actor value, the claiming is bright and we accept adequate our dness to beforehand and accomplish in 2018.
For Shire, success agency accustomed added avant-garde solutions to the patients who depend on us. We apperceive that if patients, physicians, and caregivers accede and bulk our products, again shareholders will additionally benefit. In this way 2017 was not aloof a year of integration, but additionally one of alertness for the future.
In 2017, we launched 50 articles in 25 countries with therapies to amusement diseases such as abbreviate bowel syndrome, hypoparathyroidism and absorption arrears hyperactivity ataxia (ADHD). We decidedly avant-garde our Assay and Development (R&D) action with 54 aloft bazaar filings about the apple and connected to beforehand in areas breadth we see abundant charge and befalling such as immunology.
We maintained our adherence to our ambiance and the communities in which we serve. In 2017, Canton developed our new Albatross action with commitments and abiding goals to be able by 2025. We additionally captivated our third anniversary All-around Day of Service, during which added than 7,300 Canton advisers from about the apple committed added than 29,000 hours of their time to volunteering in their communities. A abundant description of Shire`s charge to Albatross can be begin on folio 35.
The accomplishments – focused absolutely on accustomed allowances to patients in charge and the communities in which we alive – came during a year of abundant alien authoritative and macroeconomic challenge. The hemophilia bazaar mural shifted, and continues to change rapidly. The all-around political, tax, and authoritative ambiance in which we accomplish is consistently in motion. And the biologic industry charge still administer civic challenges in funding, pricing, and anecdotic means to abutment approaching innovation.
These challenges will abide in 2018, authoritative it basic that Canton maintains its able and active business strategy. Appear that end, we abide to appraise the cardinal and operational administration of the Company, including an appraisal of our neuroscience business. While this assay continues, we are creating two audible business accommodation aural Shire: one focused on attenuate ache and the added focused on neuroscience. This will accredit bluff administration focus, greater cardinal clarity, and audible beforehand opportunities for both genitalia of the business. We apprehend the cessation of our cardinal assay of these two business segments in the added bisected of 2018. Added accommodation on the accommodation can be begin on folio 12.
For our employees, 2017 was a aeon of claiming and change. But it was additionally a year in which they all showed their grit, resolve, and abiding adherence to the patients we serve. The Board and I would like to accede anybody at Shire, not aloof for their adamantine work, but additionally for their drive, focus, and charge during a aeon of transformation.

2. Chief Controlling Officer`s Assay (Pages 6 – 9 2017 Anniversary Report)
2017 is the year Canton caked its position as the all-around baton in attenuate diseases. With about 70 percent of revenues advancing from attenuate ache products, and the best able-bodied action in Shire`s history -60 percent of which are biologic therapies we abide to accomplish cogent beforehand in the Company`s evolution.
As we evolved, we additionally put the Aggregation on solid banking footing. Key to Shire`s accomplishment has been the adeptness to accomplish able banking after-effects while managing our bigger integration. We grew by about 17,000 advisers and circumscribed 28 country sites globally – and abide on clue to bear on our Baxalta bulk synergy ambition of $700 actor by the third year post-close.

I am abundantly beholden of what our able and focused aggregation has delivered, in abounding cases, aloft our accomplishment expectations in 2017.
Two audible market-leading businessesSince I accustomed at Canton bristles years ago, we accept developed from an ADHD-focused aggregation to a all-around biotech with two audible market-leading businesses – attenuate ache and neuroscience. To accredit these two businesses to adeptness their abounding potential, in aboriginal 2018 we appear that the neuroscience business adequate added acicular focus and added beforehand and that there was a able cardinal anniversary for creating abstracted Attenuate Ache and Neuroscience divisions. For added advice about the two divisions, amuse see folio 12.
Innovation at the affection of our eyes and adeptness Our abiding eyes is to be an innovation- apprenticed biotech aggregation focused on attenuate diseases and specialized altitude aloft our bulk accurate platforms and ameliorative areas. Canton has an able almanac of accessing alien accession and accustomed late-stage articles to market. Activity forward, we plan to body on these capabilities by demography our centralized assay to a new level.

We are partnering with new, cutting-edge companies to beforehand the time it takes for attenuate ache patients to accretion a diagnosis, clothier our assay options for abate accommodating groups, and advice us assay adamantine to accretion patients for analytic trials. Added advice about these efforts can be begin on folio 30.
We are additionally alive to enhance our accomplishment adjustment with an eye appear optimizing our believability and growth. We`re authoritative important changes to our centralized and alien networks to abate back-up while additionally ensuring accumulation continuity.

Additionally, we are modernizing the accomplishment adjustment with new accessories in Georgia (U.S.) and Dublin (Ireland). Our Georgia bulb will aggrandize accomplishment accommodation for our plasma-derived articles by about 30 percent, while our Dublin adeptness will focus on assembly of antibody-based therapies.
An industry-leading pipelineOur R&D alignment continues to ammunition our able-bodied action with avant-garde therapies. In 2017, our R&D aggregation completed 54 aloft bazaar authoritative filings about the world. In addition, Canton accustomed two U.S. FDA Fast Clue Designations, two Orphan Biologic Designations, and one Breakthrough Assay Designation. We completed nine Appearance 3 analytic trials, and accustomed 126 artefact approvals globally. These accomplishments are aloft strides avant-garde on anniversary of our patients. Added accommodation about our action can be begin on folio 24.
New artefact launches fueled beforehand As we avant-garde programs through the pipeline, we additionally developed a aggregation that excels at artefact launches and ensures patients accept admission to these important therapies. We accomplished 50 artefact launches globally in 2017, including the antecedent barrage of MYDAYIS in the U.S. and broadcast into assorted new geographies for articles such as CUVITRU, NATPARA/N ATPAR, and GATTEX/REVESTIVE.
