      SECOND QUARTER 2023 SEGMENT COMMENTARY:
      Adjusted operational sales* reflected below excludes the net impact of acquisitions and divestitures and translational currency.

      Pharmaceutical
      Pharmaceutical worldwide adjusted operational sales grew 3.9%*. Excluding the COVID-19 Vaccine, adjusted operational sales grew 6.2%*. Growth was driven by DARZALEX (daratumumab), ERLEADA (apalutamide), and CARVYKTI (ciltacabtagene autoleucel) in Oncology, STELARA (ustekinumab) and TREMFYA (guselkumab) in Immunology, UPTRAVI (selexipag) and OPSUMIT (macitentan) in Pulmonary Hypertension, and SPRAVATO (esketamine) in Neuroscience. Growth was partially offset by ZYTIGA (abiraterone acetate) and IMBRUVICA (ibrutinib) in Oncology, COVID-19 Vaccine (Ad26.COV2.S) in Infectious Diseases, and REMICADE (infliximab) in Immunology.

      MedTech
      MedTech worldwide adjusted operational sales grew 9.9%*, driven primarily by electrophysiology products in Interventional Solutions, trauma in Orthopaedics, wound closure products in General Surgery, biosurgery in Advanced Surgery, and contact lenses in Vision. MedTech worldwide operational sales grew 14.7%*, with the acquisition of Abiomed contributing 4.8%.

      Consumer Health
      Consumer Health worldwide adjusted operational sales increased 7.7%* largely driven by over-the-counter (OTC) products. Major contributors to growth in OTC were TYLENOL and MOTRIN analgesics, upper respiratory products, international smoking cessation products, and IMODIUM in digestive health products. Additional contributors to growth were NEUTROGENA in Skin Health/Beauty products and Women’s Health products outside the United States.

      FULL-YEAR 2023 GUIDANCE:
      Johnson & Johnson does not provide GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis because the company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of legal proceedings, unusual gains and losses, acquisition-related expenses and purchase accounting fair value adjustments without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to Johnson & Johnson’s results computed in accordance with GAAP.
