  2. Reasons for Revisions

     Taking into account the drug price recalculation of "Opdivo Intravenous Infusion", starting from August this year, decided at the Central Social Insurance Medical Council held on May 12, 2021, we have revised its revenue forecast downward from ¥120 billion to ¥110 billion. On the other hand, the revenue forecast for major products including new products other than "Opdivo Intravenous Infusion" has been revised upward. Consequently, we anticipate a decrease of ¥5 billion from the previously announced forecast to ¥345 billion.
     Cost of sales is forecast to decrease by ¥1 billion from the previously announced forecast to ¥95 billion due to a decrease in revenue.
     Selling, general and administrative expenses are expected to be ¥74 billion, a decrease of ¥2 billion from the previously announced forecast.
     As a result of the above, operating profit is forecast to be ¥103 billion (decrease by ¥2 billion from the previous forecast), profit before tax ¥105 billion (decrease by 2 billion), profit for the year ¥81.6 billion (decrease by ¥1.5 billion), and profit attributable to owners of the Company ¥81.5 billion (decrease by ¥1.5 billion).

    (Note) The above financial forecasts and statements contained in this announcement are made based on information available as of the announcement date. Actual results may differ materially from those set forth in the announcements due to various uncertain factors.
