Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) may be a giant in transition, but its still a pharmaceutical giant. The company's blockbuster cardiovascular lineup includes heart disease drug Plavix and Avapro for hypertension. BMS also makes antipsychotic medication Abilify and HIV treatments Reyataz and Sustiva. Most of its sales come from products in the therapeutic areas of cardiovascular care, immunoscience, metabolics, neuroscience, oncology, and virology. BMS has global R&D facilities and manufacturing plants, mainly in the US and Europe, and its products are marketed to health care practitioners, hospitals, and managed care providers in 100 countries.
BMS' major R&D facilities are in New Jersey and Connecticut, with other sites in the US, the UK, Belgium, India, and other countries. It has about a dozen manufacturing facilities, which are located in the US and Puerto Rico, France, Italy, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, and China.
Sales and Marketing
BMS sells its products globally, although US wholesale drug distributors McKesson, Cardinal Health, and AmerisourceBergen account for about 60% of sales. In addition to wholesalers, the company also sells some products directly to customers including retailers, hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies. BMS employs a direct sales force in certain markets; it also uses independent marketing representatives.
The biggest story for BMS is the looming loss of US patent protection on its best selling drugs Plavix (33% of sales in 2011) and Avapro (5% of sales) in the first half of 2012. Because it doesn't have any surefire blockbuster drugs waiting in the wings to offset the losses, the company is pinning its future on harder-to-copy biopharmaceuticals. In addition, beginning in 2007 BMS launched a multi-year restructuring effort. It divested all of its non-pharmaceutical operations, shuttered or sold more than half of its manufacturing and packing facilities, and trimmed its workforce by at least 10%.
Sales dropped in 2009 after a series of asset divestitures, but in 2010 and 2011 the company increased revenues by 4% (to $19.5 billion) and 9% ($21.2 billion), respectively. As a result of its restructuring efforts, BMS also reported improved profits in 2011, with net income rising 20% to $3.7 billion (after a sharp drop in profits during 2010).
To remake itself into a biopharmaceutical powerhouse, the company must first add more biopharmaceutical drugs and drug candidates to its pipeline. And, to give its plan more luster, BMS named it the string-of-pearls strategy. Since 2007 the company has completed almost a dozen licensing deals and major acquisitions in areas including hepatitis C, diabetes, and inflammatory disease.
Collaborations are also an important part of BMS' development and marketing strategy. The company not only works with other research organizations throughout the world, it also engages collaboratively with physicians, hospitals, and medical schools. Its R&D efforts are focused on areas of significant unmet medical need, including psychiatric, neurological, cardiovascular, metabolism, oncology, bacterial and viral infections, and inflammatory or immune system disorders. French drugmaker Sanofi manufactures and distributes several BMS products, including Plavix and Avapro. Japanese drug firm Otsuka Pharmaceutical co-promotes Abilify and certain oncology products. BMS also works to expand its offerings and fight off patent expiration losses by finding new uses of already approved drugs. For instance, BMS and Otsuka gained approval for Abilify as a treatment for bipolar disorder in 2011.
Recently approved drugs in the company's cabinet include Orencia (rheumatoid arthritis), Ixempra (cancer), and Emsam, (major depressive disorder). In 2011 the FDA approved its kidney transplant drug belatacept, marketed as Nulojix, and BMS launched Yervoy in the US and EU for treating adults with inoperable or metastatic melanoma as well as Onglyza/Kombiglyze for type 2 diabetes (developed with AstraZeneca). Late stage drugs in the BMS development pipeline include Eliquis for prevention of stroke, Dapagliflozin for treating diabetes, and oncology drug Brivanib, plus potential added indications for its key marketed products.
Mergers and Acquisitions
In 2012 BMS made a huge splash when it acquired Amylin Pharmaceuticals in a $7 billion deal ($5.3 billion in cash, plus $1.7 billion in debt and contractual obligations to Amylin's former partner Eli Lilly). The purchase added new diabetes drugs to BMS' offerings, including Byetta, Symlin, and Bydureon. As a follow-on to the deal, BMS and AstraZeneca extended their existing diabetes collaboration partnership to develop additional drugs based on Amylin's technologies; AstraZeneca paid Amylin some $3.2 billion to gain access to those R&D programs immediately after the BMS acquisition transaction closed.
Earlier in 2012 BMS completed another big dealpurchased drug developer Inhibitex for a whopping $2.5 billion. The purchase added Inhibitex's lead hepatitis C asset, INX-189 to its growing portfolio of HCV programs. Inhibitex's INX-189 is an oral nucleotide polymerase (NS5B) inhibitor that is in Phase II development.
Earlier purchases include the 2011 acquisition of small-molecule pharmaceutical company Amira Pharmaceuticals in a deal worth up to $475 million including milestone payments. Through the deal, BMS gained Amira's two key research programs in inflammatory and tissue-scarring diseases. Amira's lead candidate, AM152, is in early clinical testing for pulmonary fibrosis, a fatal lung disease. In addition, BMS purchased development partner ZymoGenetics for some $885 million in 2010 to gain full access to their collaborative hepatitis C development program. more »

John Hancock, the man, was a revolutionary, but the company that bears his name is a bit less fiery. John Hancock Financial Services offers life insurance, wealth management, and other services. Its insurance products include variable, universal, and term life insurance, along with long-term care insurance. John Hancock's wealth management products include annuities, mutual funds, and 401(k)s. One of the US's largest investors, John Hancock offers institutional asset management services, providing clients with specialty funds in such industries as timber and agriculture. It has more than $185 billion in funds under its management. First established in 1862, John Hancock is owned by Canada's Manulife.
John Hancock Financial Services operates as Manulife Financial in Canada and Asia and primarily as John Hancock in the US.
Its insurance and wealth management units each account for roughly half of its premium income. Together, the units account for half of parent company Manulife's revenues.
Sales and Marketing
John Hancock offers high-net-worth individuals estate planning services, while more modest middle income customers are offered group products.
In headier days, John Hancock worked to expand its sales channels. While agents still account for the majority of sales, the company has built up multiple distribution channels, such as the Internet and alliances with regional banks.
The company now lets independent agents in its John Hancock Financial Network have a bit more independence, including more options in how agents can affiliate with the company, while simultaneously offering agents more support. The move has proved attractive and the number of agents in the network has increased more than two-fold. The company also opened up its wealth management products distribution capacity by forging new partnerships with financial advisory firms including Edward Jones, and Ameriprise Financial.
John Hancock has struck a posture of serenity during the global economic turmoil of recent years. While other major insurers worked feverishly to assure customers of their stability, John Hancock simply introduced new long-term-care and retirement income products.more »

In the early 1960s, two guys at the University of Michigan – Sam Zell and Bob Lurie – started managing student apartment buildings. Over the next five decades, the buildings would change but the basic philosophy would remain the same: invest in properties at the right price and hire the best people to manage them well.
From that modest beginning rose an industry leader, one that joined the NYSE in 1993 and was the first apartment company in the S&P 500 in 2001.
Today, our portfolio of high-quality properties in growth markets – New York City, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, to name a few – provides homes where people most want to live.
We still buy, build, rehab and manage our apartment communities, but along the way, we didn’t just grow; we transformed how business is done. From our state-of-the-art operating system to the way we develop our people, cultivate our culture and connect with our residents, Equity Residential is leading the way.
We are building value for our shareholders, residents and employees by combining the resources of a large company and a national presence with strong local management and expertise. Our employees are really good at what they do, work hard and play nice, appreciate the community at large and value the contributions of others. At Equity, we take pride in providing a culture where employees can be themselves and be heard.more »

Politicians try to engineer a better government, but MITRE governs the country's best engineering. A private, not-for-profit organization, MITRE Corporation provides consulting, engineering, and technical research services primarily for agencies of the federal government. It employs more than 7,000 scientists, engineers, and other specialists who work at primary research facilities in Massachusetts and Virginia. It also manages serveral federally funded research and development centers serving organizations such as the Department of Defense, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Internal Revenue Service, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. MITRE was founded in 1958 by former MIT researchers.
MITRE also supports the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Administrative Office of the US Courts. For the DHS, MITRE provides systems engineering practices and acquisition expertise, while it helps the US Courts with state-of-the-art technology to benefit the federal judicial system. The company has also assisted the Intelligence Community in safeguarding classified information.
In 2011 the company changed the name of The Department of Defense Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence Federally Funded Research and Development Center to National Security Engineering Center. It did so to reflect the various work programs -- such as systems engineering, information technology, operational concepts, and enterprise modernization -- it conducts for the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community and their partners.
In addition to primary research facilities in Bedford, Massachusetts and McLean, Virginia, MITRE has international operations in Belgium, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, South Korea, Taiwan, and the UK.
The company is focusing on supporting the Department of Defense's operations and improving acquisition outcomes, preserving an information advantage, and addressing the government's enterprise IT consolidation. For the Intelligence Community, it has been focusing on helping thwart cyber attacks to the nation's critical infrastructures.
In 2012, MITRE invested $51 million in research and development to advance military and civilian technologies. The investment is designed to provide more equipment and workspaces for the company's engineers and scientists. (Some 65% of its employees have advanced degrees.)
MITRE's revenue from operations increased 6% from $1.3 billion in fiscal year 2010 to about $1.4 billion illion in fiscal year 2011.The increase was primarily driven by the addition of work for the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Health and Human Services and the Federal Aviation Administration.more »
