So, EPS was $1.73  (consensus: $0,86), the total revenues was $457,6 million (consensus: $470,3 million). The company's portfolio includes several products: Eylea, Zaltrap, Arcalyst, Sarilumab, and REGN727. The share of Eylea amounts to 72% of total sales of the company. Sales of this drug coincided with the forecast. This year was the explosive growth of sales of this drug compared with last year.
