Bristol Myers Squibb (BMY) Q3 earnings report 2023

2 min read

Bristol Myers Squibb on Thursday reported quarterly adjusted earnings that topped expectations and posted revenue in line with estimates, even as sales of the company’s popular blood cancer drug Revlimid plummeted due to generic competition. 

Bristol Myers, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, raked in $10.96 billion in revenue for the third quarter, down 2% from the same period last year.
