Takeda Emphasizes Strategy for Delivering Sustainable Growth Over Next Decade at the 40th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference

Share

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) (“Takeda”) today confirmed the company is positioned for growth in the mid- and long-term with the potential to deliver incremental revenue growth and additional upside potential through FY2030. Presenting at the 40th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, Christophe Weber, Takeda’s President and Chief Executive Officer, reinforced the mid-term revenue growth potential of its 14 global brands. In addition to recent FDA approvals, Takeda’s strong pipeline of approximately 40 diverse, clinical-stage assets will provide the potential for a significant number of regulatory approvals over the next several years, further supporting its long-term topline growth outlook. As part of Takeda’s approach to building a robust pipeline, the company also announced today its plans to exercise its option to acquire Adaptate Biotherapeutics after a successful multi-year R&D partnership. This will add a novel antibody-based γδ T-cell engager platform, including pre-clinical candidate and discovery pipeline programs, to Takeda’s immuno-oncology portfolio further demonstrating its commitment to delivering life-transforming medicines to patients.

“Over the past decade, we have reinvented ourselves into a top-tier global company positioned for strong growth through innovation. With our global scale, exciting pipeline and a robust portfolio of brands, together with our investments in data and digital, we aim to revolutionize how we treat disease and improve patients’ experiences,” said Christophe Weber, president and chief executive officer, Takeda. “Our growth strategy is clear, and I am confident in our ability to continue delivering on our ambitious vision with several molecules that have significant sales potential in our pipeline and as demonstrated by our two recent FDA approvals of pipeline assets and their launches late last year.”

Mid-Term Growth Expected to be Driven by 14 Global Brands

Takeda’s strong commercial execution materializes in the growth of its 14 global brands, which are on track to meet its underlying revenue growth forecast of +14-16% for FY2021 and are expected to continue to help to drive topline acceleration, competitive margins and strong cash flow in the medium term. The company is confident that these global brands, alongside new product launches such as EXKIVITY™ (mobocertinib) and LIVTENCITY™ (maribavir), will contribute to forecasted total company incremental revenue growth of approximately JPY 500 billion ($4.5 billion)by FY20251. Incremental revenue is expected to result from continued market penetration, a growing market size in launched countries, and new indications and geographic expansion, including in Japan and emerging markets, such as China. The company also reviewed assumptions for Entyvio® (vedolizumab) biosimilars, and is no longer expecting entry of biosimilars when data exclusivity expires.

Pipeline Poised to Deliver Sustained Value

Takeda’s R&D engine has approximately 40 clinical-stage potential therapies in oncology, rare genetics and hematology, neuroscience, gastroenterology, plasma-derived therapies and vaccines, and this diverse pipeline is projected to ensure long-term growth beyond FY2025. Assets expected to be in pivotal trials by the end of FY2022 have more than JPY 1 trillion (~$10B) in non-PTRS adjusted, approximately JPY 500 billion (~$5B) in PTRS adjusted, aggregate peak sales potential2,3. This includes TAK-003, a potential vaccine to treat dengue fever, a global public health threat; TAK-755, the first and only, potentially transformative, targeted ADAMTS13 replacement therapy for thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), a rare and life-threatening clotting disorder; and soticlestat, for the treatment of developmental and epileptic encephalophathies. In addition, five high-potential therapies in earlier stage development, including multiple cell and gene therapies, are expected to have pivotal readouts in the next few years, several of which have significant peak sales potential.

Strong Execution Delivering Value

Throughout its global transformation, Takeda has delivered on its financial commitments. This includes topline acceleration driven by its 14 global brands, which delivered revenue of JPY 1.2 trillion ($11 billion) in FY2020 and are on track to meet Takeda’s underlying revenue growth forecast of +14-16% in FY2021, representing approximately 45% of total core revenue. In addition, Takeda continues to deliver a strong underlying core operating profit margin and free cash flow and is on track towards its deleveraging target of low twos net debt to adjusted EBITDA by FY2023. The company also recently announced its plans to buy back shares, underscoring confidence in its business strategy and commitment to delivering value to shareholders.
