Underlying revenue growth in the 3Q (April to December, 2015) was +3.8% year-to-year, Underlying Core Earnings was +1.5% and Underlying Core EPS was +17.3%, with no change in Takeda's management guidance for FY2015. Reported revenue grew +4.0% year-to-year to 1,393.3 billion yen. An increase in expenses to new global products as well as a decrease in other income such as reversal of COLCRYS® contingent consideration and gain from sales of real estate in 2014, resulted in a year-to-year decline in Operating Profit by 31.6 billion yen. Despite the decrease in operating profit, consolidated net profit was 113.6 billion yen, an increase of 33.9 billion yen (+42.5% year-to-year), mainly due to the decrease in income tax expenses.

Underlying revenue growth was mainly driven by Takeda's growth drivers; gastroenterology, oncology and emerging markets. The three account for almost 50% of Takeda's revenue. Gastroenterology grew by +24.7% year-to-year, driven by ENTYVIO®. Oncology revenue, including VELCADE® and ADCETRIS®, increased by +0.4%. Launched in the U.S. in December, NINLARO®, a highly innovative once-weekly capsule for multiple myeloma, is expected to provide a significant contribution to Takeda's mid- to long-term sustained growth. Emerging Markets revenue grew by +5.7% year-to-year, led by Value Brands (branded generics and Over-The-Counter medicines), with strong growth in Russia and China. Performance in the U.S. (+11.6% year-to-year underlying revenue growth) also contributed to revenue growth. In Japan, under the increasing generic pressure, underlying revenue declined -1.7% year-to-year, but the year-to-year revenue declines moderated, led by the contribution of AZILVA® and LOTRIGA®.

Project Summit – a company-wide strategic initiative to increase efficiency – continued to produce results, with 21 billion yen savings in the three quarters period, exceeding the full year target.

ENTYVIO® and NINLARO® are expected to be key global contributors to Takeda's sales growth. In Japan, a new business venture with Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. will be established in or after April 2016 to deliver Teva's high-quality generic medicines and Takeda's long-listed products to patients. It is expected to meet wide-ranged needs of patients and correspond to the growing importance of generics in Japan, while Takeda will further focus on innovative new medicines, such as AZILVA®, LOTRIGA®, TAKECAB®, NESINA® and ZAFATEK®.

As part of its ongoing effort to improve the R&D productivity, Takeda announced that its top priority is to be a leader in three therapeutic areas, Oncology, Gastroenterology and Central Nervous System. In addition, it will deliver maximum, targeted value in Specialty CV and an innovative business and global health approach in Vaccines.

Takeda affirmed its management guidance for FY2015, leading to long-term sales and profit growth, and raised the full-year reported forecast of operating profit to 120 billion yen, based on the three quarters' results.
