Dear Sir:

It gives us great pleasure to submit this report on “Annual Report Analysis” on the basis of the previous one-year annual report of Johnson & Johnson, as you authorized us, as a group, to prepare and submit no later than October 9, 2016.

It was a fantastic opportunity for us to prepare this report under your guidance, which really was a great experience for us. We have collected information from the company’s annual report, website and text books.

We all have worked very hard and tried our very best to prepare this report. We would be very happy to provide further information if necessary.

JNJ was founded by three brothers and now operates over 250 facilities, and employs approximately 127,100 employees worldwide, engaged in research and development, manufacture and sale of a very broad range of products in the healthcare field. The main focus of JNJ is human healthcare and well-being.

JNJ is organized into three business segments; consumer, pharmaceutical and medical devices.

  • The consumer segment includes a broad range of baby care, oral, skin care, over the counter pharmaceuticals, women’s health and wound care products. Included in these products are Johnsons baby care products, Listerine, Aveeno, RoC, Clean & Clear and Tylenol, to just name a few.
  • The pharmaceuticals segment focuses on five therapeutic areas;
  1. Immunology (e.g. Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and Psoriasis)
  2. Infectious Diseases & Vaccines (e.g. HIV, Hepatitis, Repertory Infections and TB)
  3. Neuroscience (E.G. Alzheimer’s Disease, Mood Disorders, and Schizophrenia)
  4. Oncology (e.g. Prostate cancer, Hematologic Malignancies, and Lung Cancer)
  5. Cardiovascular & Metabolic Diseases (e.g. Thrombosis and Diabetes)
  • The prescription products included in this segment are Simponi-a treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis, Xarelto-a treatment for the prevention of deep vein thrombosis, and various other prescription pharmaceuticals to prevent, control or cure in the therapeutic areas mentioned above.

JNJ competes locally (United States) and globally in all their product lines without regard to the number or size of the competing companies. Research & Development plays a significant role in the company’s business. JNJ is committed to investing in research & development with the aim of developing high quality and innovative products. JNJ’s businesses are subject to varying degrees of government regulation in the countries in which operations are conducted. The general trend is toward increasingly stringent regulation. The exercise of broad regulatory powers the U.S. Food & Drug administration (the FDA) continues to result in increases in the amounts of testing and documentation required for FDA approval of new drugs. The cost of human health care has been and continue to be a subject of study, investigation and regulation by governmental agencies.
