2 Partnering for Growth Agenda
Our strategic priorities and platforms for growth Partnering strategy and capabilities Academic Collaborations to drive scientific leadership

3 Driving strategic priorities
Achieve scientific leadership Focus on 3 distinct core disease areas Prioritise and accelerate our pipeline Strengthen our capabilities in translational science and personalised medicine AstraZeneca is a pure-play biopharmaceuticals organisation committed to delivering great medicines to patients through innovative science and excellence in development and commercialisation. In March 2013 we announced the outcomes of our strategy review designed to strengthen our ability to deliver business success in the face of an increasingly tough environment. Our overall direction stays the same but we are concentrating our skills and resources on a core set of priority pipeline projects and platforms for growing our business. Within our chosen therapy areas, we will tighten our disease focus. We will strengthen our scientific capabilities particularly in the areas of translational medicine and personalised healthcare We are also transforming our innovation model and the way we work by dramatically simplifying the business, improving productivity and building a culture that supports long-term success. Transform our innovation and culture model

4 We will focus on distinctive science in our core therapy areas
Neuroscience Infection & Vaccines Cardio- Metabolism Respiratory/ inflammation Core TAs Oncology Opportunity-Driven AstraZeneca is committed to executing a focused innovation-driven global biopharmaceuticals strategy, exploiting our unique combination of strengths in large and small molecules, immunotherapies and protein engineering technologies. Our strategic re-focus means we are prioritising Cardiovascular & Metabolism (CVMD), Respiratory, Inflammation & AutoImmune (RIA) and Oncology as our three core areas and being more opportunistic in Infection and Neuroscience.  Our research and development efforts will be more focused. In large and small molecules R&D, we will concentrate our scientific efforts and the weight of our investment, including business development, on three core therapy areas: Respiratory, Inflammation and Autoimmunity. Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disease. Oncology. We will continue to be active in Infection and Vaccines and in Neuroscience though our investments will be more opportunity-driven. Leveraging business development and acquisitions to deliver upside to the company’s base plan and to strengthen the pipeline further. Small Molecules Protein engineering Biologics Immuno-therapies

5 2 Build biologics/specialty care potential to drive sustainable longer term growth Return to growth Development Pipeline Today On track for sustainable delivery of 1 BLA/year from 2016 Convert strong biologics pipeline into future launches Create a balanced primary and specialty care product portfolio ~50% Biologics ~50% Small Molecules As we already described, currently approximately 50% of our pipeline consists of biologics We are focused on accelerating the development of our key biologics products We expect to launch a steady flow of specialty care products in the future, balancing the company’s historic strength in primary care. Development (Phase I-III) pipeline today has grown to ~50% biologics BLA = Biologics License Application

6 AZ Emerging Markets – A platform for success
6th fastest growing MNC pharma player across Emerging Markets Russia ~$300 Million Turkey ~$250 Million China ~$1.5 Billion ~$6bn sales in Emerging Markets S. Korea ~$240 Million Mexico ~$240 Million Brazil ~$500 Million AstraZeneca is the 6th fastest growing MNC pharma player across Emerging Markets with ~$6 billion sales a CAGR of 10% between 2008–2012 at CER. We are the 2nd leading pharmaceutical company in China by prescription sales New Emerging Markets strategy Increase investment in China and other top priority markets. This means continuing to enter or expand our presence in these key markets, including investing in research and development, sales, marketing and our people in those countries. For example in Russia, we are increasing our primary care sales force by 20%, launching a new pharmacy sales force (up to 150 FTEs) and investing in a manufacturing plant. Strengthen commercial capabilities and maximise lifecycle management opportunities to drive AstraZeneca brands in EMs. Continue to build great brands with our new products, especially Brilinta and our Diabetes Portfolio. Focus on innovative portfolio and move away from bgx. However we will focus on selective bgx BD deals where it makes sense to increase our broad market strategy. We will also access biosimilar products that complement our own portfolio. Regional BD in our growth markets will help us gain access to the right products for our key markets and leverage existing EM commercial capabilities to improve performance. For example, Linaclotide in China with Ironwood. If you are interested in finding our more about the emerging markets then please feel free to come to the panel tomorrow at 10.30am Saudi Arabia ~$170 Million Source: Internal 2012 Ex Factory Sales / IMS

Our strategic priorities and platforms for growth Partnering strategy and capabilities Academic Collaborations to drive scientific leadership

8 Working in collaboration is an ongoing part of our new strategy
AstraZeneca partnering strategy is focused on supplementing and complementing our core therapy areas and scientific capabilities Approximately 40% of our pipeline is sourced through external partnerships Increased focus on early stage research deals and academic alliances in 2013 Our commitment to partnering remains as strong as ever – it is a key accelerator of our strategic ambition to return to growth by strengthening the pipeline and re-establishing scientific leadership. We will continue to in-license to strengthen the pipeline, focusing predominately on the three core therapy areas, while we will seek partnerships and bolt-on acquisitions to support the late-stage and on-market portfolio to accelerate revenues. Currently approximately 40% of our pipeline is sourced through partnerships There will be a more intense focus of business development efforts by our small molecules and biologics biotech units on early-stage academic and biotech alliances. For example our recent deals with Moderna and KI In addition to licensing and partnering AstraZeneca will continue to seek small to medium scale opportunities for bolt-on acquisitions that strengthen our core TA portfolios . These deals may typically be of the scale of the Ardea and Amylin deals which were completed in Medium scale deals may be in the upper range value of up to $10 billion. We will seek to and have the capacity to add an additional 1–2 global partnerships beyond the existing BMS and Amgen alliances without impacting our ability to operate independently and without compromising our existing partnering commitments. We completed over 80 deals in 2012 of which approximately one third were pre-clinical or research collaborations. Pursue in-licensing and bolt-on acquisitions that strengthen the core TA portfolios Seek 1-2 additional global peer-to-peer partnerships beyond BMS and Amgen alliances 8
