Takeda Reports First Half FY2016 Results and Raises Full Year Profit Guidance


Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TOKYO:4502):

Strong first half results led by Growth Drivers

  • Underlying Revenue grew +7.4%, led by a +15.3% increase of Takeda's Growth Drivers
    (GI, Oncology, CNS and Emerging Markets). Reported revenue declined -5.9%, due to unfavorable currencies (-8.6pt) and the impact of divestitures (-4.7pt).
  • Underlying Core Earnings advanced +12.7% with the Core Earnings margin increasing by 0.7pt. Despite unfavorable currencies and the negative impact of divestitures, reported operating profit was up +46.7% benefiting from strong underlying growth and a one-time gain on the Teva JV transaction.
  • Underlying Core EPS was up +49.3%, reflecting strong Core Earnings growth and a lower tax rate due to timing. Reported EPS more than doubled to 159 yen, up from 69 yen in the prior year period.
  • Reported Operating Free Cash Flow was up 34.0% to 74.6 billion yen driven by continued working capital improvements.

Takeda's Growth Drivers delivered 15.3% Revenue growth

  • GI underlying revenue grew +39.4%, driven by ENTYVIO® and TAKECAB®.
  • Oncology underlying revenue grew +4.9% driven by NINLARO® and ADCETRIS®.
  • CNS underlying revenue of +28.2% was boosted by a strong TRINTELLIX® performance.
  • Emerging Markets underlying revenue growth was +4.9% with Q2 growth accelerating to +5.7%.

Underlying Revenue growth across all regions, led by continued double-digit performance in the US

  • Japan underlying revenue was up +4.1%, driven by TAKECAB®, AZILVA® and LOTRIGA®.
  • US underlying revenue growth of +15.1%, led by ENTYVIO®, NINLARO® and TRINTELLIX®.
  • Europe and Canada underlying revenue grew +4.8%, driven by ENTYVIO® and ADCETRIS®.
  • Emerging Markets underlying revenue was up +4.9%, with robust growth in the key markets of Brazil (+11.1%), China (+9.7%) and Russia (+8.4%).

Christophe Weber, President and Chief Executive Officer of Takeda, commented:

"Today we reported strong first half results in a year of significant transformation. This strong momentum allows us to increase our full year profit guidance.
The recent positive CHMP opinion for the conditional approval of NINLARO ® in the EU was an important step to bring this new treatment option to patients worldwide. I am confident that our Growth Drivers will continue to fuel our momentum well into the future."
