Takeda Reports Q3 FY2016 Results and Improves Year-End Outlook

Del

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TOKYO: 4502):

Strong Q3 year-to-date (YTD) results propelled by Growth Drivers

  • Underlying Revenue grew +7.4%, with Takeda's Growth Drivers (GI, Oncology, CNS and Emerging Markets) delivering growth of +15.5%, and Underlying Revenue growth across all regions (U.S. +14.4%, Japan +5.0%, Europe & Canada +4.6%, Emerging Markets +4.9%).
    Reported revenue declined -5.6%, due to unfavorable currencies (-8.4pp) and the impact of divestitures (-4.5pp).
  • Underlying Core Earnings grew +23.5%, with the Core Earnings margin increasing by 2.1pp. Despite unfavorable currencies and the negative impact of divestitures, reported operating profit was up +29.8%, benefiting from strong underlying growth and a one-time gain on the Teva JV transaction that was booked in Q1 FY2016.
  • Underlying Core EPS was up +31.7%, reflecting strong Core Earnings growth and a lower tax rate due to timing. Reported EPS was 212 yen, an increase of +46.3% from 145 yen in the prior year.
  • Adjusted Operating Free Cash Flow was up +9.3% to 120.0 billion yen.

Takeda's Growth Drivers delivered +15.5% Underlying Revenue growth

  • GI underlying revenue +37.9%, driven by ENTYVIO® and TAKECAB®.
  • Oncology underlying revenue +6.3%, supported by uptake of NINLARO® and ADCETRIS®.
  • CNS underlying revenue +28.3%, underpinned by strong performance of TRINTELLIX®.
  • Emerging Markets underlying revenue +4.9%, with robust growth in the key markets of Brazil (+9.5%), China (+8.0%) and Russia (+7.3%).

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

"Our impressive year-to-date performance is evidence of how our strategic transformation is driving profitable growth. We are pleased to report that Takeda's Growth Drivers (GI, Oncology, CNS and Emerging Markets) have maintained their strong momentum, driven in particular by the continued success of ENTYVIO and NINLARO. This gives us the confidence to improve the full-year outlook for FY2016. Furthermore, we continue to make strong progress against our strategic transformation. In December, we announced our plan to sell Takeda's shareholding in Wako Pure Chemical, and in January, we announced our plan to acquire ARIAD Pharmaceuticals. This deal will significantly enhance our global oncology portfolio and create value for our shareholders."
