Osaka, Japan, February 4, 2020 - Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) ("Takeda") announced today, the revised forecast of the full year consolidated financials for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2020, as below.

|Revised Forecast (B)
*1 Announced on October 31, 2019.
2. Reasons for Revision
The revised forecast in the table above reflects impacts from retrospective adjustments to amounts recognized in association with business combination to reflect the finalized purchase price allocation of the Shire acquisition. It also includes the business momentum of Takeda's 14 global brands and improved efficiency in operating expenses and cost synergies.
The revenue forecast has been increased by 26.0 billion JPY, or 0.8%, to 3,286.0 billion JPY, primarily due to business momentum led by Takeda's 14 global brands.
Core Operating Profit has been increased by 20.0 billion JPY, or 2.2%, to 950.0 billion JPY, reflecting the business momentum coupled with positive impact from cost efficiencies and synergies.
The Operating Profit forecast has been increased by 120.0 billion JPY, to a profit of 10.0 billion JPY. This reflects a 100.0 billion JPY increase primarily attributable to the revised full year expense expectations reflecting retrospective adjustments to amounts recognized in association with the purchase price allocation for the Shire acquisition. Due to the finalization of the purchase price allocation of the Shire acquisition, adjustments have been made to reduce these expenses, such as cost of sales and amortization of intangible assets, by a total of 118.8 billion JPY versus the previous full year forecast. It also reflects the 20.0 billion JPY increase in Core Operating Profit.
The net profit for the period attributable to owners of the Company has been increased by 111.0 billion JPY, to a loss of 162.0 billion JPY, primarily due to the factors explained above.

Takeda has upwardly revised its full-year Underlying Core EPS guidance to reflect the business momentum.
