On average, prognosticators tracking the stock expected $3.23 billion in revenue and an adjusted per-share net profit of $1.30.

Mylan benefited from relatively robust sales in its "rest of world" regional classification, which covers all markets that are not North America and Europe. Rest of world saw an 8% uptick in sales; the company said new products in markets such as Australia and India helped in this regard.

In terms of products, Mylan singled out drugs such as pancreatic enzyme replacement treatment Creon and flu vaccine Influvac as being brisk sellers worldwide. Both of those medications landed in the company's portfolio from its 2014 deal with Abbott Laboratories.

Zooming out to the full year, overall revenue was $11.5 billion, representing a marginal improvement over the 2018 figure. Adjusted net profit slipped to $2.28 billion from the previous year's $2.36 billion.

Mylan provided guidance for fiscal 2020. The company believes it will book total revenue of $11.5 billion to $12.5 billion. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) should come in at $3.2 billion to $3.9 billion against the latest result of $3.54 billion. The company didn't supply any projections for net profit.
