DEVELOPMENT IN COSTS AND OPERATING PROFIT

El cost of goods sold increased by 12% measured in Danish kroner and by 14% at CER to DKK 11,358 million, resulting in a gross margin of 83.0% measured in Danish kroner compared with 84.1% in 2020. The decline in gross margin reflects lower realised prices in the US, a negative currency impact of 0.7% percentage point and amortisation of intangible assets related to the acquisition of Emisphere Technologies Inc. in 2020. This is countered by a positive product mix driven by increased GLP-1 sales and productivity improvements in line with the strategic aspiration of driving operational efficiencies.

Sales and distribution costs increased by 8% measured in Danish kroner and by 15% at CER to DKK 16,257 million. The increase in costs is driven by both International Operations and North America Operations. In International Operations, promotional spend is related to launch activities for Rybelsus® and Ozempic®, field force expansion in China as well as Obesity care market development activities. In North America Operations, the cost increase is driven by promotional activities for Rybelsus® and Ozempic®, partially offset by lower promotional spend related to insulin. The cost increase was impacted by low activity level in the second quarter of 2020 due to COVID-19.

Research and development costs increased by 12% measured in Danish kroner and by 15% at CER to DKK 7,888 million. Increased activities within Other serious chronic diseases are driving the cost increase reflecting the progression of the pipeline within cardiovascular disease and NASH as well as increased costs within Obesity care driven by the ongoing cardiovascular outcomes trials, SOUL and SELECT. The cost increase was impacted by low activity level in the second quarter of 2020 due to COVID-19.

Administration costs increased by 5% measured in Danish kroner and by 8% at CER to DKK 1,836 million, reflecting low spend in the second quarter of 2020 due to COVID-19 impact on activities.

Other operating income (net) was DKK 255 million compared with DKK 227 million in the first six months of 2020.

Operating profit decreased by 1% measured in Danish kroner and increased by 9% at CER to DKK 29,761 million.

The foreign exchange result was a net gain of DKK 1,049 million compared with a net loss of DKK 1,555 million in the first six months of 2020. This reflects gains on hedged currencies, primarily the US dollar.

As per the end of June 2021, a negative market value of financial contracts of approximately DKK 0.4 billion has been deferred for recognition later in 2021 and 2022.

The effective tax rate is 19.8% in the first six months of 2021 compared with an effective tax rate of 20.8% in the first six months of 2020, reflecting favourable changes to tax positions covering prior years.

Free cash flowDKK 39-44 billionDKK 37-42 billion

For 2021, sales growth is now expected to be 10% to 13% at CER. The guidance reflects expectations for continued sales growth in both International Operations and in North America Operations. The guidance reflects expectations for sales growth across therapy areas, mainly driven by Diabetes and Obesity care. Intensifying competition within both Diabetes care and Biopharm is also reflected in the guidance. Furthermore, continued pricing pressure within Diabetes care, especially in the US, is expected to negatively impact sales development. Given the current exchange rates versus the Danish krone, growth reported in DKK is still expected to be around 4 percentage points lower than at CER.

Operating profit growth is now expected to be 9% to 12% at CER. The expectation for operating profit growth primarily reflects the sales growth outlook and continued investments in current and future growth drivers across the operating units, including the continued roll-out of Ozempic® and Rybelsus® as well as global investments in building the anti-obesity market and the launch of Wegovy™. Furthermore, resources are allocated to both early and late-stage pipeline activities, including expected initiations of several phase 3a clinical trial programmes in 2021. Given the current exchange rates versus the Danish krone, growth reported in DKK is now expected to be around 5 percentage points lower than at CER.

The current COVID-19 pandemic causes uncertainty to the outlook regarding the number of patients initiating treatment and societal impacts such as the unemployment rate in the US, which is impacting healthcare insurance coverage. The outlook is based on a number of assumptions related to the severity and duration of impacts from COVID-19. Consequently, volatility in quarterly results should be expected.

For 2021, Novo Nordisk now expects financial items (net) to amount to a gain of around DKK 0.6 billion, mainly reflecting gains associated with foreign exchange hedging contracts.

El effective tax rate for 2021 is now expected to be in the range of 19-21%.

Capital expenditure is still expected to be around DKK 7.5 billion in 2021.

Depreciation, amortisation and impairment losses are now expected to be around DKK 5.5 billion reflecting phasing of depreciation of the new production facility for diabetes active pharmaceutical ingredients in Clayton, North Carolina, US.

El free cash flow is now expected to be DKK 39-44 billion reflecting higher net profit expectations.

All of the above expectations are based on assumptions that the global or regional macroeconomic and political environment will not significantly change business conditions for Novo Nordisk during 2021, including the potential

implications from major healthcare reforms and legislative changes as well as outcome of legal cases, and that the currency exchange rates, especially the US dollar, will remain at the current level versus the Danish krone. Neither does the guidance include the financial implications of significant business development transactions during the remainder of 2021.

INNOVATION AND THERAPEUTIC FOCUS

Diabetes care

Resubmission of once-weekly semaglutide 2.0 mg for the treatment of type 2 diabetes for US regulatory approval

On 28 May 2021, Novo Nordisk resubmitted a label expansion application to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Ozempic®, a once-weekly GLP-1 analogue, to introduce a new dose of 2.0 mg. The resubmission follows the Refusal to File letter received by the FDA on 22 March 2021. The standard review time by the FDA is ten months.

Phase 2 trial initiated with cagrilintide in combination with semaglutide in people with type 2 diabetes

In August 2021, Novo Nordisk initiated a 37-week phase 2 trial comparing the effect on glycaemic control and body weight of cagrilintide in combination with semaglutide compared to semaglutide in people with type 2 diabetes.

Obesity care

Wegovy™ (semaglutide 2.4 mg) approved in the US for weight management

On 4 June 2021, Wegovy™, once-weekly subcutaneous semaglutide 2.4 mg, was approved by the FDA as an adjunct to diet and exercise for chronic weight management in adults living with obesity (BMI > 30 kg/m2) or overweight (BMI > 27 kg/m2) with at least one weight-related comorbidity. The approval is based on the results from the STEP phase 3a clinical trial programme. Across trials in people without type 2 diabetes, an average weight loss from a baseline of 17-18% sustained over 68 weeks was reported for people with obesity treated with Wegovy™ (based on the trial product estimand, secondary statistical approach: treatment effect if all people adhered to treatment and did not initiate other anti-obesity therapies. When using a treatment policy estimand, 15-17% weight loss was reported). Wegovy™ demonstrated a safe and well-tolerated profile across the programme, with the most common adverse events being gastrointestinal. Novo Nordisk launched Wegovy™ in the US in June 2021.

In May and June 2021, Novo Nordisk successfully completed two phase 3b trials with Wegovy investigating weight loss after two years of treatment compared to placebo (STEP 5) and comparing the weight loss effect with Saxenda® and placebo (STEP 8) in people with obesity (BMI > 30 kg/m2) or overweight (BMI > 27 kg/m2) without type 2 diabetes. In STEP 5, participants treated with Wegovyachieved a statistically significant and superior body weight reduction compared to placebo (16.7% versus 0.6%) from baseline to week 104. In STEP 8, treatment with Wegovyresulted in a statistically significant body weight reduction of 17.1% compared to 6.6% for Saxenda® and 1.8% for placebo. Both Wegovyand Saxenda® appeared to have safe and well-tolerated profiles in the trials.

Phase 2 trial initiated with PYY 1875 in people with obesity

In July 2021, Novo Nordisk initiated a phase 2 proof of concept trial with PYY 1875 for weight management. The trial is investigating safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of different doses of PYY 1875 in combination with semaglutide 2.4 mg compared to placebo. The 42-week trial is expected to enrol around 75 people with obesity.

Other serious chronic diseases

Phase 3 programme initiated with oral semaglutide 14 mg in Alzheimer’s Disease

In May 2021, Novo Nordisk initiated two phase 3a trials, evoke and evoke+, investigating the efficacy and safety of oral semaglutide in early Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The randomised, placebo-controlled trials assess efficacy and safety of oral semaglutide 14 mg in a total of 3,680 people with early AD (mild cognitive impairment and mild dementia). The duration of the trials is three years.

Phase 2 trial initiated with oral PCSK9i

In August 2021, Novo Nordisk initiated a phase 2 dose finding trial with a novel oral PCSK9i. The 12-week phase 2 trial is investigating efficacy, pharmacokinetics and safety of several doses of PCSK9i compared to evolucumab and placebo. The phase 2 trial is based on results from a phase 1 trial with a subcutaneous formulation of the PCSK9i and it is expected to enrol around 250 people with high LDL-cholesterol.

Purpose and sustainability

Circular for Zero

As part of the environmental strategy 'Circular for Zero', Novo Nordisk has a target of all direct suppliers supply Novo Nordisk using 100% renewable power by 2030. Since the launch of the target in September 2020, suppliers representing approximately 25% of supply chain carbon emissions have committed to use renewable power when supplying to Novo Nordisk. This change has already reduced Novo Nordisk's direct supply chain carbon emissions by more than 15%. Further, to reduce carbon emissions from travel, new guidelines to limit business travel and encourage online meetings are being implemented.

Novo Nordisk carbon emissions from operations and transport decreased by 45% to 83,215 tons in the first six months of 2021 compared to the first six months of 2019. The decrease was driven by renewable energy projects and impacts from COVID-19 on travelling. 2019 is used as baseline as 2020 was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Social

Defeat Diabetes

Novo Nordisk continues to take action under the social responsibility strategy ‘Defeat Diabetes’ with a keen focus on access and affordability and prevention. Within access and affordability, Novo Nordisk is expanding the Changing Diabetes® in Children partnership aspiring to reach 100,000 children and young people with type 1 diabetes in low-resource settings by 2030. Together with global partners – F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG, International Society for Paediatric and Adolescent Diabetes and the World Diabetes Foundation – Novo Nordisk is including new countries in the programme, most recently Ghana in June 2021. 15 countries are now included.

Within prevention, Novo Nordisk launched the Prevention Accelerator in June, inviting start-ups developing digital solutions to submit ideas for how to enable individuals and societies to predict or prevent obesity. This initiative comes in addition to the Healthy Food Challenge, launched in January in partnership with the EAT Foundation. The Healthy Food Challenge invited community stakeholders and private businesses to prevent obesity through solutions that advance healthy and sustainable food environments for vulnerable people.

Employees

The number of full-time employees at the end of the first six months of 2021 increased by 3.3% compared to 12 months ago. The total number of employees was 46,574 corresponding to 45,971 full-time positions. The increase is driven by International Operations, Product Supply and R&D, partially countered by North America Operations.

Diversity and inclusion

Being a sustainable employer offering an inclusive and diverse working environment is an integrated part of being a sustainable business. While a number of initiatives have been launched to progress gender diversity in Novo Nordisk, only gradual progress has been made as the current share of women in senior leadership positions is 35% (defined as vice presidents, corporate vice presidents, senior vice presidents and executive vice presidents).

To underline Novo Nordisk’s commitment, accelerate progress and ensure leadership accountability, Novo Nordisk has defined the following global aspirational targets:

Create an inclusive culture where all employees have a sense of belonging and equitable opportunities to realise their potential

Achieve a balanced gender representation across all managerial levels

Achieve a minimum of 45% women and a minimum of 45% men in senior leadership positions by the end of 2025

Balanced is defined as the range between 45%-55% to leave up to 10% flexibility for women and men and also allow for non-binary gender recognising that some employees may not wish to be categorised.

While gender is one dimension of diversity, Novo Nordisk fully recognises that diversity is any dimension that differentiates people and enables a diverse line of thought.

APPENDIX 7: NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASURES (ADDITIONAL INFORMATION)

In this Company Announcement, Novo Nordisk discloses certain financial measures of the Group’s financial performance, financial position and cash flows that reflect adjustments to the directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS. These non-IFRS financial measures may not be defined and calculated by other companies in the same manner and may thus not be comparable with such measures. The non-IFRS financial measures presented in the Company Announcement are Sales and operating profit at CER, Free cash flow and Financial reserves.

Sales and operating profit growth at CER

'Growth at CER’ means that the effect of changes in exchange rates is excluded. It is defined as Net sales/Operating profit for the period measured at the average exchange rates for the same period prior year compared with Net sales/Operating profit for the same period prior year. Price adjustments within hyperinflation countries as defined in IAS 29 ‘Financial reporting in hyperinflation economies’ are excluded from the calculation to avoid growth at CER being artificially inflated.

Growth at CER is considered to be relevant information for investors in order to understand the underlying development in sales and operating profit by adjusting for the impact of currency fluctuations.

Free cash flow

Novo Nordisk defines free cash flow as ’net cash generated from operating activities’, less ‘net cash used in investing activities’, less repayment on lease liabilities and excluding net change of marketable securities. Free cash flow is a measure of the amount of cash generated in the period which is available for the Board of Directors to allocate between Novo Nordisk's capital providers, through eg dividends, share repurchases and repayment of debt (excluding lease liability repayments) or for retaining in the business to fund future growth.

The following table shows a reconciliation of Free cash flow with Net cash generated from operating activities, the most directly comparable IFRS financial measure:
