2. Reason for revision of the consolidated financial results forecasts
Revenue is forecasted to be ¥547,000 million (down 0.3% from the previous fiscal year) due to the impact of the latest results of the Japan pharmaceutical business and exchange rates.
Operating profit is forecasted to be ¥51,000 million which is unchanged from the previous forecast as the impact from the decrease in revenue will be offset by further progress in cost optimization.
Profit for the period is forecasted to be ¥50,000 million (up ¥13,000 million from the previous forecast), attributable to the transfer of shares in AkaRx Inc. by Eisai's U.S. subsidiary Eisai Inc. as announced today. Furthermore, Eisai intends to set the dividend for the period (second six-month period ending March 31, 2016) at ¥80 per share, with the forecast for the total dividend for the year remaining unchanged at ¥150 per share (same amount as the previous fiscal year).
