  1. Reasons for Revision

Takeda expects FY2023 revenue to be JPY 3,980.0 billion, an increase of JPY 140.0 billion, or 3.6%, from the original forecast. This is predominantly due to changes in the assumptions of foreign exchange rates reflecting the trend towards depreciation of the yen.

Operating Profit forecast has been decreased by JPY 124.0 billion, or 35.5%, to JPY 225.0 billion. This is mainly due to a revised assumption of impairment losses on intangible assets associated with products, reflecting the FY2023 H1 actual results in which Takeda recorded impairment losses for ALOFISEL® and EXKIVITY®. Other Operating Expenses has also been updated to include the effect of provisions recorded in FY2023 H1 not known at the time of and therefore not included in the original forecast.

Core Operating Profit, adjusted to exclude items unrelated to Takeda's core operations, remains unchanged from the original forecast of JPY 1,015.0 billion.

Net profit for the year (attributable to owners of the Company) forecast has been decreased by JPY 49.0 billion, or 34.5%, to JPY 93.0 billion. An impact of the decrease of profit before tax is expected to be mostly offset by the tax expense reduction recorded in FY2023 H1 for the amount of JPY 63.5 billion, which resulted from a settlement with the Irish Revenue Commissioners over the tax assessment of an acquisition break fee Shire received in 2014.

Reported EPS is expected to be JPY 59.45, a decrease of 34.5%, and Core EPS is expected to be JPY 447, an increase of 3.1%.
