To the Participants and Administrator of

the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Employee

Incentive Thrift Plan and the Savings

Plan Committee of Bristol-Myers Squibb

Company

 

In our opinion, the accompanying statements of net assets available for benefits and the related statements of changes in net assets available for benefits present fairly, in all material respects, the net assets available for benefits of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Employee Incentive Thrift Plan (the “Plan”) as of December 31, 2003 and 2002, and the changes in net assets available for benefits for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Plan’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits of these statements in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Our audits were conducted for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic financial statements taken as a whole. The supplemental Schedule of Assets (Held at Year End) is presented for the purpose of additional analysis and is not a required part of the basic financial statements but is supplementary information required by the Department of Labor’s Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. This supplemental schedule is the responsibility of the Plan’s management. The supplemental schedule has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audits of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.

NOTE 1—DESCRIPTION OF PLAN

 

General

 

The Squibb Employee Incentive Thrift Plan became effective on July 1, 1973 as one of two successor plans to the original Squibb Employee Incentive Thrift Plan which was adopted effective January 1, 1968 by E.R. Squibb & Sons, Inc., a subsidiary of Squibb Corporation.

 

On October 4, 1989, Squibb Corporation merged with a subsidiary of Bristol-Myers Company and Bristol-Myers Company changed its name to Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (the “Company”). Effective January 1, 1991, the name of the Squibb Employee Incentive Thrift Plan was changed to the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Employee Incentive Thrift Plan (the “Plan”).

 

Effective October 1, 1994, the Plan ceased operating within the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Master Trust and began operating within the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Savings Plan Master Trust (the “Savings Plan Master Trust”) maintained by Fidelity Investments (“Fidelity”). The assets of the Plan were commingled within the Savings Plan Master Trust with the assets of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Savings and Investment Program (the “Savings Program”).

 

On April 1, 1999, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Puerto Rico, Inc. Savings and Investment Program (the “Puerto Rico Program”) assets were transferred from Northern Trust to Fidelity and began operating within the Savings Plan Master Trust. The assets of the Plan were then commingled within the Savings Plan Master Trust with the assets of the Savings Program and the assets of the Puerto Rico Program.

 

The Savings Plan Master Trust Statement, presented in Note 6, includes the interests of the Plan, the Savings Program and the Puerto Rico Program.

 

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Savings Plan Committee (the “Committee”) is the Administrator of the Plan and named fiduciary for Plan assets.

 

A Zimmer Holdings, Inc. Stock Fund (the “Zimmer Stock Fund”) was established in the Plan on August 6, 2001 at the time of the spin off. All participants in the Company Stock Fund received in this fund one share of Zimmer Holdings, Inc. stock for every ten shares of Bristol-Myers Squibb stock held in the Company Stock Fund. Balances can remain in this fund for two years as of the spin off completion date but no new contributions or inter-fund transfers to the fund are permitted. Participants may direct the trustee to liquidate some or all of their holdings in the Zimmer Stock Fund at any time during this two-year period and re-invest the proceeds in the other funds available under the Plan. This fund was discontinued effective August 5, 2003, and remaining balances were transferred to the Fidelity Retirement Money Market Portfolio.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Effective March 1, 2003, the Plan was amended to eliminate the six-month waiting period. Eligible employees may participate in the Plan following their date of hire, although the company matching contributions do not begin until an eligible employee has attained six months of service as prescribed by the Plan.

 

Contributions

 

In general, any employee who meets certain service requirements is eligible to participate in the Plan. An employee electing to participate in the Plan can elect to contribute up to 25% of his or her Annual Benefit Salary or Wages (as defined in the Plan) on an after-tax basis or to reduce his or her compensation by up to 25% and have such amount contributed on his or her behalf on a pre-tax basis subject to applicable limitations. Participants may also elect a combination of contributions up to a combined total of 25%, both on an after-tax and pre-tax basis. For each participant, the first 6% of total combined contributions is matched 75% by the Company.

 

Contributions of participants and the Company are remitted to Fidelity on a bi-weekly basis and are recorded on an accrual basis. All investment decisions are self directed by participants. Participant contributions are invested in any one or more of the following funds which comprise the Savings Plan Master Trust: Company Stock Fund, Fixed Income Fund, Fidelity Select Equity Small Capitalization Collective Trust Fund, Fidelity Equity-Income Fund, Fidelity Growth Company Fund, Fidelity U.S. Bond Index Fund, Fidelity Puritan Fund, Fidelity Retirement Money Market Portfolio, Fidelity U.S. Equity Index Commingled Pool, the Dreyfus Appreciation Fund, Inc., Managers Special Equity Fund and Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund.

 

Prior to March 1, 2003, company matching contributions were automatically invested in the Company Stock Fund. These contributions could not be transferred out of the Company Stock Fund unless the participant was 55 years of age or older. Effective March 1, 2003, the Plan was amended to eliminate the requirement that company matching contributions be invested in the Company Stock Fund until age 55. Employees may now invest prior and future company matching contributions in any of the funds available under the Plan. Company matching contributions, invested as indicated by the participant in any one or equally in any two or more of the funds, made to the Plan prior to the January 1, 1991 merger of the Squibb Corporation Incentive Savings and Stock Ownership Plan, are also transferable among the investment funds. Effective as of January 1, 2002, the Company Stock Fund became an Employee Stock Ownership Plan or ESOP.

 

The Plan was amended to comply with the applicable provisions of the following Federal tax laws:

 

  The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (GATT)

 

  The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA)

 

  The Small Business Job Protections Act of 1996 (SBJPA)

 

  The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 (TRA’97)

  The Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 (RRA ‘98), and

 

  The Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 (EGTRRA) legislation.

 

The statutes listed above, with the exception of EGTRRA, are collectively referred to as GUST.

 

As of July 1, 2002, the Plan was amended to allow for “catch up” contributions for eligible participants who were 50 years of age or older. The catch-up contribution is intended to give employees who are approaching retirement age the opportunity to make additional pre-tax contributions over the applicable Internal Revenue Service and Plan limits. Generally, if an eligible employee’s contribution rate is at 25%, such contributions exceed Internal Revenue Service applicable limits and he or she satisfies the age requirement, then that employee may make catch-up contributions. The catch-up contribution itself is limited to $2 in 2003 and will increase in thousand dollar increments to $5 in 2006. Thereafter, the catch-up contribution limit will be indexed for inflation.

 

Savings Plan Master Trust Investments

 

Company Stock Fund—Consists primarily of shares of common stock of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, which are registered for the purpose of the Plan with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. From time to time, the Plan may invest in U.S. Government obligations or other investments of a short-term nature, which will ultimately be used for the purchase of shares of Common Stock of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company. Excluding the impact of contributions receivable and dividends receivable, net additions/(deductions) to the Company Stock Fund in 2003 and 2002 totaled $8,594 and ($56,393), respectively.

 

Zimmer Holdings, Inc. Stock Fund—Consists primarily of shares of common stock of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., which are registered for the purpose of the Plan with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. From time to time, the Plan may invest in U.S. Government obligations or other investments of a short-term nature, which will ultimately be used for the purchase of shares of Common Stock of Zimmer Holdings, Inc. Net additions/(deductions) to the Zimmer Holdings, Inc. Stock Fund in 2003 and 2002 totaled ($5,978) and $341, respectively. This fund was discontinued effective August 5, 2003, and remaining balances were transferred to the Fidelity Retirement Money Market Portfolio.

 

Fixed Income Fund—Consists primarily of a group of annuity contracts issued by various insurance companies to the trustee of the Plan under which the insurance companies provide a guarantee of principal and credit interest at a guaranteed rate. All contracts pay interest on a net basis. Contracts with the John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Company, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, New York Life Insurance Company, Principal Mutual Life Insurance Company, and the Travelers Insurance Co. were in place at December 31, 2003.

From time to time, the Plan may invest in obligations of the U.S. Government or its agencies, bank investment contracts, other investments of a short-term nature and/or investments in qualified commingled trust funds managed by the trustee for the investment in funds of profit sharing and savings plans and programs.

 

At any point in time, this fund’s average yield will be a combined rate based upon the balances and the interest rates of the investments which comprise the fund, and depend on the amount of contributions invested in the fund, the amounts withdrawn from the fund and the amounts transferred to and from the fund. The fund’s average yield is measured by investment performance using general market reporting methods. The average yield of the Fixed Income Fund for the years ended December 31, 2003 and 2002 was 5.5% and 5.9%, respectively. The crediting interest rate of the Fixed Income Fund at December 31, 2003 and 2002 was 5.5% and 5.8%, respectively. The crediting interest rate at any date is the weighted average of the yields on the individual contracts and other investments in the Fixed Income Fund on that date.

 

Fidelity Select Equity Small Capitalization Collective Trust Fund—Seeks investment results that exceed the return of the Russell 2000 Index while maintaining a portfolio with risk characteristics similar to the Index.

 

Fidelity Equity-Income Fund—Seeks to provide a reasonable income. In pursuing this objective, the fund will also consider the potential for capital appreciation. The fund seeks to provide a yield that exceeds the composite yield of the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index.

 

Fidelity Growth Company Fund—Seeks to provide capital appreciation.

 

Fidelity U.S. Bond Index Fund—Seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of the bonds in the Lehman Brothers Aggregate Bond Index.

 

Fidelity Puritan Fund—Seeks to provide income and capital growth consistent with reasonable risk.

 

Fidelity Retirement Money Market Portfolio—Seeks to provide a high level of current income that is consistent with the preservation of capital and liquidity.

 

Fidelity U.S. Equity Index Commingled Pool—Seeks to approximate the composition and the total return on the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index.

 

Dreyfus Appreciation Fund, Inc.—Seeks to increase the value of investment over the long-term through capital growth. Current income is a secondary objective of this fund.

 

Managers Special Equity Fund—Seeks to provide capital appreciation through investment in small and medium sized companies.

 

Putnam International Equity Fund–Class A—Seeks to provide capital appreciation through investment in international equities. This fund was discontinued effective December 19, 2003, and remaining balances were transferred to the Fidelity Retirement Money Market Portfolio.

Withdrawals

 

While remaining in employment, a participant may withdraw all or part of the value attributable to contributions made, subject to certain restrictions of the Plan.

 

Vesting

 

A participant vests in Company contributions at the rate of 20% for each year of qualifying service so that after five years of qualifying service he or she is 100% vested. Upon death or normal retirement, a participant will become 100% vested regardless of his or her years of qualifying service. If a participant leaves the Company before becoming fully vested, the unvested portion of the Company contributions are forfeited and returned to the Company. (See Note 3 for further discussions on forfeitures.) Participants who return to work for the Company who were partially or fully vested will be reinstated to their previous level of vesting and may immediately enroll in the Plan.

 

Loans

 

While remaining in employment, a participant may request a loan from the Loan Fund. The amount of the loan may not exceed the lesser of (1) 50% of the participant’s entire vested interest under the Plan, determined as of the valuation date, or (2) fifty thousand dollars less the highest outstanding loan balance during the previous twelve months.

 

At December 31, 2003 and 2002, there were outstanding loans totaling $724 and $881, respectively, with interest rates ranging from 5.00% to 10.50% and from 5.25% to 10.00%, respectively, and varying maturity dates.

 

Termination of Employment

 

Upon the termination of a participant’s employment, the participant, or in the event of his or her death, the participant’s spouse or designated beneficiary, may, under varying circumstances, receive (1) a lump sum payment, (2) installment payments over a period not to exceed the joint life expectancy of the participant and the participant’s spouse (five years if payment is by reason of death) or (3) an annuity for employees hired prior to October 1, 1994. In each case the payment will be based on the vested value in the respective funds allocated to the participant.

 

NOTE 2—ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Valuation

 

Valuation of investments of the Plan represents the Plan’s allocable portion of the Savings Plan Master Trust’s investments. The Savings Plan Master Trust’s investment valuation policies are as follows:

 

Zimmer Stock in the Zimmer Stock Fund and the Company Stock are valued at the last reported sales price at the end of the year or, if there was not a sale that day, the last reported bid price. Common/collective trust funds are valued at the last reported bid price at the end of the year. Fixed Income and money market instruments are valued at cost plus interest earned, which approximates their

 

F-9


BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB COMPANY

 

EMPLOYEE INCENTIVE THRIFT PLAN

 

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(IN THOUSANDS)

 

respective fair values. Shares of the Fidelity mutual funds and other retail mutual funds are valued at quoted market prices which represent the net asset value of shares held by the Plan at year end. Investments in guaranteed investment contracts (“GICs”) are reported at contract value by the insurance companies. The value of outstanding participant loans is determined based on the outstanding principal balance as of the last day of the Plan year, which approximates fair value.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make significant estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of additions and deductions to net assets available for benefits during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Plan provides for various investment options in funds that can invest in a combination of stocks, bonds, fixed income securities, mutual funds, and other investment securities. Investment securities are exposed to various risks, such as interest rate, market and credit. Due to the level of risk associated with certain investment securities and the level of uncertainty related to changes in the value of investment securities, it is at least reasonably possible that changes in risks in the near term could materially affect participants’ account balances and the amounts reported in the statement of net assets available for benefits and the statement of changes in net assets available for benefits.

 

Payment of Benefits

 

Benefits are recorded when paid.

 

Income, Expenses and Realized and Unrealized Gains and Losses on Securities

 

Interest, dividends, and realized and unrealized gains and losses earned from participation in the Savings Plan Master Trust, are allocated to the Plan based upon participants’ account balances and activity. This investment activity is presented on a net basis on the statement of changes in net assets available for benefits as the Plan’s share of net investment income in the Savings Plan Master Trust.

 

Interest is accrued by the Savings Plan Master Trust as earned, and dividends are recorded on the ex-dividend date.

 

Purchases and sales of securities are recorded by the Savings Plan Master Trust on a trade-date basis. Realized gains and losses for security transactions are reported using the average cost method. Unrealized gains and losses represent the difference between the cost and fair value of securities.

 

All expenses incurred by the Plan, other than investment management and trustee fees, which are paid from each fund’s assets, are paid by the Company.

NOTE 3—TERMINATION FORFEITURES

 

Forfeitures of amounts contributed by the Company due to terminations, net of amounts reinstated, are used to reduce future Company contributions. Forfeitures are also used to pay certain plan expenses. Forfeitures for the years ended December 31, 2003 and 2002 were $5 and $0, respectively.

 

NOTE 4—TAX STATUS OF THE PLAN

 

In the Plan’s latest determination letter dated July 8, 2003, the Internal Revenue Service stated that the Plan, as then designed, was in compliance with the applicable requirements of the Internal Revenue Code. Although the Plan has been amended since receiving the determination letter, counsel believes that the Plan is qualified and the related Trust is tax-exempt as of December 31, 2003 and 2002.

 

Under present federal income tax laws and regulations, a participant will not be subject to federal income taxes on the contributions by the employing company, or on the interest, dividends or profits on the sale of securities received by the trustee until the participant’s account is distributed to the participant.

 

NOTE 5—TERMINATION OF THE PLAN

 

Although the Company has not expressed any intent to do so, it has the right to discontinue its contributions and to terminate the Plan in accordance with the provisions of ERISA. If the Plan is terminated, the interest of each participant in all funds will vest immediately. In accordance with Plan provisions, the Company has the right to amend or replace the Plan for any reason.

 

NOTE 6—MASTER TRUST

 

The Plan’s share of the Savings Plan Master Trust’s net assets and investment activities is based upon the total of each individual participant’s share of the Savings Plan Master Trust. The Plan’s approximate share of the net assets of the Savings Plan Master Trust at December 31, 2003 and 2002 was 3% in each year. The Plan’s approximate share of net investment income/(loss) in the Savings Plan Master Trust for each of the years ended December 31, 2003 and 2002 was 3% and 5%, respectively.
