Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) (the ‘Company’) is hosting a meeting today with the investment community at the New York Stock Exchange to present the Company’s overarching strategy, its diverse and robust Innovative Medicine and MedTech pipelines and long-term financial outlook.
“Science and technology will advance human health more in the next decade than it has in the last century, leading to more effective and personalized treatment, earlier intervention, and smarter, less invasive healthcare,” said Joaquin Duato, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited to share today how the breadth of our scientific capabilities, diverse portfolio and robust pipelines uniquely position Johnson & Johnson to be a leader in this next wave of innovation while delivering strong financial performance.”
At today’s meeting, members of Johnson & Johnson’s Executive Committee and leaders from the Innovative Medicine and MedTech businesses will highlight the Company’s key drivers for sustained competitive growth and value creation. Specifically:
Enterprise: Uniquely positioned to lead the next wave of healthcare innovation through transformational science and technology. Given the Company’s confidence in its future growth prospects and the strength of its pipeline, Johnson & Johnson is providing long-term financial targets and expects:
- At least 3%* operational sales growth in 20255, despite STELARA biosimilar entry in the United States
- 5-7%1* operational sales CAGR from 2025-2030
MedTech: Delivering growth through our differentiated pipeline and geographic expansion. The Company expects to build upon its market-leading position with continued expansion into high-growth markets such as interventional cardiovascular, robotics and digital. As a result, the Company expects the MedTech business to:
- Grow operational sales in the upper range of its markets, which are projected to grow 5-7%3 through 2027
- Generate one-third of sales from new products4 in 2027
Innovative Medicine: Driving continued market growth and robust innovation that will lead to breakthrough treatments. The Company is continuing to focus on areas of high innovation and higher growth while maintaining its industry-leading pipeline which is expected to deliver more than 20 novel therapies and more than 50 product expansions by 20306. In addition, by 2030, Johnson & Johnson’s Innovative Medicine pipeline and portfolio are expected to deliver:
- 5-7%1* operational sales growth from 2025-2030
- 10+ assets having the potential to deliver over $5 billion* in operational PYS2, including the five assets highlighted during the 2021 Pharmaceutical Business Review as well as TALVEY, TECVAYLI, and JNJ-2113
- 15+ assets having the potential to generate $1-5 billion* in operational PYS2, including SPRAVATO, seltorexant, aticaprant, and JNJ-4804
- Strong Financial Foundation: Maintaining multi-faceted and disciplined capital allocation strategy to support accelerated future innovation and deliver value to shareholders. With robust free cash flow generation and a healthy balance sheet, the Company intends to continue its focus on its capital allocation strategy including continued investment in R&D, increasing dividends on an annual basis, executing strategic business development initiatives for inorganic growth and assessing share repurchases, when appropriate.
The Company’s 2024 financial guidance metrics, including the previously announced anticipated impact from the Laminar, Inc. transaction, are as follows:
- Operational sales growth in the range of 5-6%5*
- Adjusted operational earnings per share growth of 7.3%* at the midpoint with a range of $10.55-$10.75*. The Company’s 2024 guidance range reflects an approximate $0.15 dilutive impact to adjusted operational EPS associated with the previously announced acquisition of Laminar, Inc.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
* Operational sales growth, which excludes the impact of translational currency, and adjusted operational earnings per share, which excludes the impact of translational currency, after-tax intangible amortization expense and special items, are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the Company’s and investors’ understanding of our financial performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures determined or calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s definitions of its non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The Company is not providing a reconciliation, however, because Johnson & Johnson does not provide GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis as the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of adjusted items, such as legal proceedings, unusual gains and losses, acquisition-related expenses, and purchase accounting fair value adjustments without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to Johnson & Johnson's results computed in accordance with GAAP.
