Analyst estimates

To create consensus, Hikma sends each analyst who actively covers Hikma a template to populate with their earnings estimates. Eight of the 10 covering analysts choose to populate this template and send it back to Hikma. Hikma has only included estimates that have been updated post its trading update announcement on 8 November  2018. Hikma does not edit the numbers it is provided, it only calculates the consensus. The estimates provided solely reflect the analysts’ view and are not endorsed by any member of Hikma or any of its Directors, employees or agents.

The consensus data is presented by Hikma for information purposes only and Hikma assumes no liability for the accuracy of such information. It should be noted that forecasts are, by definition, forward looking and are therefore subject to uncertainties and risks that may have a material impact on eventual results. Hikma does not accept any liability for reliance upon, or actions taken based on, any of the information set out in this consensus data.

Although Hikma will endeavour to procure that the information is kept updated, Hikma assumes no obligation to revise or update the consensus data to reflect circumstances existing after the date hereof.
