Analysis of Inventory

Difficulty: Advanced


Inventory Accounting Policy

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value with cost based on the first-in, first-out method. Biogen classifies the inventory costs as long-term when Biogen expects to utilize the inventory beyond the normal operating cycle and includes these costs in investments and other assets in the consolidated balance sheets. Inventory that can be used in either the production of clinical or commercial products is expensed as research and development costs when identified for use in a clinical manufacturing campaign.
