The firm reported on Tuesday that fourth-quarter earnings halved compared to the previous year to US$61mln, or 10 cents per share (EPS), from US$1.22bn, or 19 cents per share.

However, the results include three months of legacy Hospira global operations, Pfizer said, and adjusted EPS was 53 cents per share, slightly ahead of hopes.

Revenue rose to US$14.05bn from US$13.1bn, also ahead of expectations of around US$13.6bn.

But for, 2016, the company said it expects "significant negative currency impact related to Venezuela."

Excluding the effects of its merger with Allergan, Pfizer said it expects adjusted EPS of US$2.20 to US$2.30, including the impact of currency headwinds, below estimates of US$2.38 per share.
