Takeda Reports 1st Quarter FY2017 Results

Del

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TOKYO:4502):

Underlying Revenue growth of 6.6% led by Takeda's Growth Drivers

  • Underlying Revenue grew +6.6% with growth across all regions (U.S. +13.5%, Japan +1.6%, Europe & Canada +4.6%, Emerging Markets +6.0%). Takeda's Growth Drivers (GI, Oncology, CNS and Emerging Markets) maintained their strong momentum to deliver growth of +14.7%.
    • GI (Gastroenterology) +23.2%, led by continued success of ENTYVIO® and TAKECAB®
    • Oncology +12.2%, driven by NINLARO®, ADCETRIS®, ICLUSIG® and ALUNBRIGTM
    • CNS +29.8%, spearheaded by TRINTELLIX® in the U.S.
    • Emerging Markets +6.0%, with double-digit growth in the key markets of Russia and Brazil
  • Reported revenue grew +3.3%, with the positive contribution from Takeda's Growth Drivers offsetting the impact of unfavorable currencies (-0.4pp) and divestitures (-2.9pp).

Double-digit EPS growth driven by Revenue growth and significant margin gains

  • Underlying Core Earnings grew +29.4%, with a margin increase of 350bps driven by an improvement in Gross Margin and continued OPEX discipline.
  • Reported operating profit was up +27.5%, driven by strong underlying growth. Takeda realized a one-time gain in Q1 FY2017 of 106.3 billion yen from the sale of shares of Wako Pure Chemical Industries, Ltd. This was similar in size to the Teva JV transaction gain of 102.9 billion yen in Q1 FY2016, and therefore the impact on our year-on-year growth rate was minimal.
  • Underlying Core EPS was up +35.7%, reflecting strong Core Earnings growth and a phasing benefit from tax rate. Reported EPS increased +45.8% to 186 yen per share.

Significant progress on Cash Flow and reduced net leverage

  • Operating Free Cash Flow increased +50.3% to 55.5 billion yen.
  • Sale of non-core assets generated an additional 128 billion yen of cash.
  • Net Debt / EBITDA drops from 2.7x at end of FY2016 to 2.1x

James Kehoe, Chief Financial Officer of Takeda, commented:

"Takeda delivered a strong start to the year on both revenue and profitability, driven by the continued strength of our Growth Drivers and good progress on our cost management initiatives. We are executing well against our key priorities of growing the portfolio, rebuilding the pipeline, and boosting profitability, and the first quarter results confirm our confidence in the full-year outlook for double-digit EPS growth."

175 Million Europeans Have Sleep Apnoea, Highlighting Scale of Global Health Crisis18.9.2018 13:05Pressemelding

Roughly 175 million Europeans have obstructive sleep apnoea, according to a late-breaking abstract presented by ResMed today at the European Respiratory Society’s annual ERS Congress in Paris. Leading researchers estimate 90 million Europeans have moderate to severe sleep apnoea, meaning they experience at least 15 breathing events an hour during sleep. These statistics are based on the latest scoring rules for determining one’s apnoea–hypopnoea index (AASM 2012) and are connected with a 16-country study announced in May 2018 that revealed an estimated 936 million people worldwide have sleep apnoea, a chronic sleep-disordered breathing condition associated with increased risk of mortality and reduced quality of life. The new global prevalence is nearly tenfold higher than the previous one – 100 million – estimated by the World Health Organization in 2007.
