  • 1. The MERCK GRoup AN OVERVIEW 3_013_FACTS+FIGURES_EN.indd 1 13.03.13 15:0
  • 2. OUR FIELDS: PHARMACEUTICALS. CHEMICALS. LIFE SCIENCE. At Merck, around 39,000 people in 66 countries develop pharmaceutical, chemical and life science innovations. We operate our businesses in four divisions: Merck Serono, Consumer Health, Performance Materials and Merck Millipore. PHARMACEUTICALS: We discover, develop, manufacture and commercialize innovative prescription drugs and therapies for high unmet medical needs. Through their targeted effect, these help patients to live a longer and better life (Merck Serono). In addition, for the consumer health care market, we offer a wide range of over-the-counter products that help prevent illness and relieve minor complaints (Consumer Health). 3_013_FACTS+FIGURES_EN.indd 2 13.03.13 15:0
  • 3. CE. CHEMICALS: Our broad range of specialty chemicals are used in t ­echnologically sophisticated applications ranging from liquid crystal mixtures for flat-panel displays, to effect pigments and cosmetic ­ingredients (Performance Materials). LIFE SCIENCE: As a leading global partner to this future-oriented industry, we offer products, applications and solutions for protein research and cell biology as well as for the manufacture of chemical and biopharmaceutical drugs. Our products and services range from laboratory chemir cals, ­ eagents and consumables to analytical methods and laboratory p water ­ urification systems (Merck Millipore). 3_013_FACTS+FIGURES_EN.indd 3 13.03.13 15:0
  • 4. OUR STRATEGY: PROFITABLE GROWTH. 3_013_FACTS+FIGURES_EN.indd 4 13.03.13 15:0
  • 5. We are convinced that in our core pharmaceutical, chemical and life science businesses, the market will reward successful research and technological a ­ dvances with attractive margins. Our focus is on innovative specialty products. Competing on price alone and operating in commodity markets is not what we do. We have a clear objective: profitable growth. This is based on a distinct, fundamental strategy that can be summed up in three words: Sustain. Change. Grow. It’s a strategy based on the right balance between the old and the new, between tradition and innovation. It gives us the best possible preconditions for future growth and makes it possible to fully unleash our entrepreneurial potential. Our strategy and our ethical company values give our employees clear o ­ rientation for their daily work. We enable them to share in the company’s success and, thus, also in the execution risk. This way, we will remain c ­ urious and courageous – and continue to seize many new opportunities in the future. 3_013_FACTS+FIGURES_EN.indd 5 13.03.13 15:0

  • 15. • Extended indication of the multiple sclerosis drug Rebif® was approved in Europe in 2012 for use in patients who have experienced a single demyelinating event, an early sign of the disease. • The targeted oncology drug Erbitux® is currently approved for use in colorectal cancer in 92 countries and in head and neck cancer in 90 countries. • Merck Serono researchers are currently working on 16 projects in drug development. • With innovative liquid crystal mixtures for polymer-stabilized vertical alignment (PS-VA) applications, we further expanded our technology leadership. PS-VA technology opens up new possibilities for LCD producers to achieve previously unattained screen properties. • Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) convert electricity most efficiently into light and can be produced as thin, flexible films. Application possibilities include displays, for example in mobile phones or small televisions. • With Scepter™, the Merck Millipore division launched the world’s first automated handheld cell counter. • For photovoltaics, Merck supplies materials for the cost-efficient production of solar cells and develops new materials, e.g. for flexible, organic solar cells. • Merck is working on innovative lighting materials, such as those for p ­ ower-saving white LEDs, which may represent an alternative to conventional incandescent light bulbs and energy-saving lamps. 3_013_FACTS+FIGURES_EN.indd 15 13.03.13 15:0
