1. Company general info.
It's nearly impossible to get well without Johnson & Johnson (J&J). The diversified health care giant operates in three
segments through more than 250 operating companies. Its pharmaceuticals unit makes drugs -- including best-selling
schizophrenia medication Risperdal -- for an array of ailments, such as neurological conditions, blood disorders,
autoimmune diseases, and chronic pain. J&J's medical devices and diagnostics division offers surgical equipment,
monitoring devices, orthopedic products, and disposable contact lenses, among other things. Its consumer products
segment makes over-the-counter drugs and products for skin and hair care, baby care, oral care, first aid, and
women's health.

Within its pharmaceuticals division, sales for blockbuster drug Risperdal are up, accounting for 8% of J&J's total sales
and close to 20% of its pharmaceutical sales. Other drugs experiencing strong growth are Crohn's disease treatment
Remicade (which the FDA approved for treatment of psoriasis in 2006); epilepsy drug Topamax; and attention deficit
disorder drug CONCERTA. Looming generic competition may hurt CONCERTA's sales, however, as it has the
contraceptives business of subsidiary Ortho-McNeil.

In 2006 J&J purchased the consumer healthcare unit of Pfizer, adding about 40 brands to J&J's offerings. The
company plans to combine its own consumer brands (including Tylenol pain reliever, Neutrogena skin products, and
Johnson's baby shampoo) with Pfizer's lineup (Listerine, Sudafed, Rolaids antacid, Benadryl allergy medicine,
Rogaine baldness treatment, Zantac antacid, Bengay analgesic, and Lubriderm skin lotion). In order to clear some
FTC hurdles, the companies agreed to sell US marketing rights for Zantac to Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals
for a little more than $500 million. J&J has also sold five brands (Act mouthwash, Unisom sleep aid, Cortizone anti-
itch treatment, Kaopectate anti-diarrhea medication, and Balmex for diaper rash) to Chattem.

In 2006 J&J aggressively pushed to add cardiac defibrillator maker Guidant to its medical device portfolio, but was
thwarted at every turn by counter-bids from niche rival Boston Scientific. Boston Scientific emerged victorious from
that battle, paying some $27 billion for Guidant.

The company had better luck on the acquisition market in 2007, acquiring drug-coated stent maker Conor
Medsystems. The acquired company will become part of J&J's Cordis cardiac device business.

2.   In the news

November 15, 2007 - Johnson & Johnson Announces Changes To Accelerate Growth - Three New Units to Focus on
Convergence and New Opportunities
Johnson & Johnson today announced a series of organizational changes to sharpen its focus on opportunities outside its
traditional areas of interest and in the growing intersections of health care. These include the creation of a new strategy and
growth organization and two new business operating groups. The changes are designed to accelerate growth for Johnson &
Johnson by building on the unique strengths afforded by the Company's broad base of businesses and decentralized
structure. A new Office of Strategy and Growth will identify opportunities for future growth that are distinct from those
being pursued by the Company's existing businesses; a Surgical Care Group will focus on advancing technologies,
solutions and services to enhance patient care in the surgical setting; and a Comprehensive Care Group will create
portfolios to address some of the world’s most chronic and pervasive conditions, such as metabolic disorders, through the
convergence of technologies, products and services. "These decisions recognize that a new environment is emerging in
human health and well-being," said William C. Weldon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Johnson & Johnson. "They
reflect our assessment of the best way for us to capture and develop the opportunities associated with those changes and
they capitalize on the unique, broadly-based, decentralized approach of Johnson & Johnson."

June 7, 2007 - Johnson & Johnson Highlights Growth Strategies for Pharmaceutical and Consumer Businesses -
Expects to File for Five More New Pharmaceutical Compounds by End of 2007; Anticipates Another 7 to 10 New
Compound Filings by End of 2010
Johnson & Johnson highlighted its Pharmaceutical and Consumer businesses at a meeting with financial analysts today,
describing its broadly based health care business as strong and poised for continued growth in the coming years. Johnson &
Johnson's Vice Chairman Christine Poon underscored how the company believes it is uniquely positioned with its breadth of
businesses and flexible operating model to outperform its competitors in a $4 trillion global market for health solutions. "Being
broadly based is a cornerstone of our success and will amplify our growth going forward," Poon said in her opening remarks.
"We have the people, proprietary technology and capabilities of many diverse, entrepreneurial companies," said Poon. "This
enables us to innovate at the intersections of our businesses. That's an important competitive advantage and why we’re truly
more than the sum of our many vibrant businesses."
Pharmaceuticals – Most Robust Pipeline in its History
Johnson & Johnson's Pharmaceutical segment generated $23.2 billion in revenues last year, which would make it the fifth
largest pharmaceutical business and third largest biotech business in the world if it were a stand-alone company, according
to IMS Health. The company said that it continues to see a great deal of growth potential for its pharmaceutical business in
the coming years as it looks to address a nearly $650 billion global market opportunity. "The lion's share of future industry
growth will go to those companies with the size, scale and know-how to take advantage of the rapidly changing dynamics of
this marketplace – both scientific and economic," said Joe Scodari, Worldwide Chairman of the Pharmaceutical segment for
Johnson & Johnson. "We believe we are one of those companies." Scodari continued, "We invested approximately $5 billion
in R&D in 2006. More important than the level of investment, of course, is the level of productivity that this investment
generates, and we believe our pipeline is more robust today than at any point in our history."
Creating the World's Premier Consumer Health Care Company
In 2006, Johnson & Johnson's Consumer segment, including the recently acquired Pfizer Consumer Healthcare (PCH)
business, generated $13.6 billion dollars in sales on a pro forma basis . Its collection of some of the world's leading brands
are spread across six consumer franchises -- OTC Medicines and Nutritionals; Skin Care; Baby Care; Oral Care; Women’s
Health and Wound Care – and compete in a $315 billion global consumer products market. "Each of our franchises has an
extraordinary lineup of brands, known and trusted by millions of consumers around the world," said Colleen Goggins,
Worldwide Chairman of the Johnson & Johnson Consumer segment. "Looking ahead, we will continue to drive growth by
building on our iconic brands through superior science, consumer insight and excellence in professional and consumer
marketing," said Goggins. "We will grow through further expansion in developing markets, through new technologies, and we
continue to look for selected acquisitions that offer new avenues for growth."
