Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited Provides Dividend Guidance for the Second Quarter and Full Year of Fiscal 2015; Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended June 30, 2015; Revised Earnings Guidance for the Year Ending March 31, 2016

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited provided dividend guidance for the second quarter and full year of Fiscal 2015. For the second quarter, the company expects to pay dividend of JPY 40 per share against JPY 30 per share paid a year ago. For the full year, the company expects to pay dividend of JPY 30 per share against JPY 30 per share paid a year ago. The company reported consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2015. Revenue was JPY 238,417 million against JPY 213,706 million last year. Operating profit was JPY 49,126 million against JPY 32,790 million last year. Profit before tax was JPY 45,194 million against JPY 32,695 million last year. Profit from continuing operations was JPY 34,090 million or JPY 49.66 per diluted share against JPY 20,892 million or JPY 30.58 per diluted share last year. Profit attributable to owners of the company was JPY 34,932 million or JPY 49.66 per diluted share against JPY 19,986 million or JPY 28.34 per diluted share last year. Net cash flows from operating activities were JPY 25,721 million against JPY 17,258 million last year. Acquisitions of property, plant and equipment was JPY 7,419 million against JPY 7,533 million last year. Acquisition of intangible assets was JPY 19,567 million against JPY 5,051 million last year. Increase of the revenue mainly owed to growth in sales of mainstay products in Japan, the U.S., Asia and South and Central America, and to the positive impact of currency movements (valued at about JPY 12.4 billion). Operating profit increase reflected not only an increase in gross profit but also decreases in selling, general and administrative expenses. Increase in profit before tax was not as substantial as the operating profit increase owing to an increase in financial expenses resulting from factors including the payments with regard to the sale of Sun Pharma shares. The substantial increase in profit attributable to owners of the company was the result of the increase in profit before tax and other factors such as a decrease in the amount of income taxes. Capital expenditure was JPY 5.8 billion against JPY 5.2 billion last year. The company revised consolidated earnings guidance for the year ending March 31, 2016. The company expects revenue of JPY 950,000 million, operating profit of JPY 120,000 million, profit before tax of JPY 115,000 million, profit attributable to owners of the company of JPY 75,000 million or JPY 108.12 per basic share against previous guidance for revenue of JPY 920,000 million, operating profit of JPY 100,000 million, profit before tax of JPY 95,000 million, profit attributable to owners of the company of JPY 60,000 million or JPY 85.22 per basic share. In terms of revenue, the launch of a generic product following the expiry of the patent for Welchol® at Daiichi Sankyo Inc. in the U.S. is now expected to be delayed more than previously anticipated. In addition, further expansion in sales of products including Injectafer® at Luitpold Pharmaceuticals is expected. In light of these circumstances, the forecast for revenue has been revised upward by JPY 30.0 billion. With respect to operating profit and profit before tax, in light of an expected gross profit increase due to the expansion in revenue, the forecasts for operating profit and profit before tax have both been revised upward by JPY 20.0 billion. Profit attributable to owners of the company has been revised upward by JPY 15.0 billion in light of an increase in profit for the year resulting from the profit before tax, among other factors. This will be a substantial increase of JPY 46.5 billion against profit attributable to owners of the company of continuing operations in fiscal 2014. The company expects capital expenditure of JPY 30.3 billion.
