2. Reason for revision of the consolidated financial forecasts
Revenue is estimated to be \756.0 billion, up \26.0 billion from the previously announced forecasts, based on product performance and foreign exchange trends.
Receiving Biogen Inc.’s updated demand forecast for aducanumab based on the NCD by CMS, Eisai will record an impairment loss of \8.0 billion in cost of sales after reevaluating sales rights of aducanumab recorded by Eisai as well as \16.5 billion in SG&A expenses as Eisai’s share of the write-down of inventory recorded by Biogen Inc. As a result, operating profit is estimated to be \53.5 billion, down \24.5 billion from the previously announced forecast. Accordingly, profit attributable to owners of the parent is expected to be \48.0 billion, down \12.5 billion from the previously announced forecast. There are no changes to the total dividend for the fiscal year which is set at ¥160 per share (same amount as the previous fiscal year) with the fiscal year-end dividend is planned to be ¥80 per share.
*Please note that the above-mentioned forecasts were made based on information available as of May 3, 2022. Actual results will be disclosed in the earnings announcement on May 13, 2022.
