2. Reason for the differences

Significant difference in profit for the year have arisen between the results of fiscal 2016 and the results of fiscal 2015 mainly due to the fact that an impairment loss related to the property, plant and equipment and intangible assets for the vaccine business was recorded in fiscal 2016 in addition to a decrease in revenue of Olmesartan. (Daiichi Sankyo discloses the difference in profit for the year when there is a significant difference between the actual result of profit for the year and that of the previous fiscal as it does not typically disclose the forecast of profit for the year.)

 

The above figures for revenue, operating profit, profit before tax, profit for the year, profit attributable to owners of the Company, and basic earnings per share are the same as those disclosed in the Consolidated Financial Results for Fiscal 2016 which is also released today.
