  • We may not be able to maintain competitive financial flexibility and our corporate tax rate which could adversely affect us and our shareholders.
  • Unanticipated changes in our tax provisions or exposure to additional income tax liabilities and changes in income tax laws and tax rulings may have a significant adverse impact on our effective tax rate and income tax expense.
  • Currency fluctuations and changes in exchange rates could adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows, ability to pay dividends and/or stock price.
  • There are inherent uncertainties involved in estimates, judgments and assumptions used in the preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

  • In connection with the Combination, Viatris assumed or retained certain material obligations relating to defined benefit pension and termination benefits and retiree medical and dental benefits associated with legacy employees of the Upjohn Business and/or sponsored by Upjohn entities. These liabilities and the related future funding obligations could restrict cash available for Viatris’ operations, capital expenditures, dividend payments and other requirements, and may materially adversely affect Viatris’ financial condition and liquidity.
