The Johnson & Johnson Intelligence Dossier
May you live in interesting times—or so the old curse goes.

Johnson & Johnson is certainly doing just that.

After a year of upsets and some victories, J&J ended the last half of 2009 with the announcement it would cut 8400 non-US based jobs, and restructure its worldwide operations in an effort to save between $1.4 billion and $1.7 billion by 2011.

Faced with the ever-present spectre of brands going off patent, J&J CEO William Weldon defended his company’s three-pronged structure of medical devices, consumer health and pharmaceutical, saying that such a model offered some protection from research setbacks and generics eating into profits, which dropped by 14.1 per cent in Q3.

That may be, but J&J had other late-year issues to contend with, as well. The drug maker was forced to expand its recall of Tylenol to include Benadryl, Motrin and Rolaids, following consumer reports that the products smelled musty and causes nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. And that wasn’t the only drug-related negative news: The US Justice Department also filed a lawsuit against the company, alleging that it paid millions of dollars in kickback to a pharmacy specializing in dispensing drugs to nursing home patients.

Yet while some news was positive—there were several new deals announced, including a $1 billion investment in Elan in exchange for 18.4 per cent of the company—there are still questions around J&J’s future performance.
