Terumo Revises its Full-Year Financial Guidance for FY2020
TOKYO, JAPAN – February 4, 2021 – Terumo Corporation (TSE: 4543) today announced that it revised the full-year financial guidance for the year ending March 2021 (FY2020) which was first revised on November 5, 2020.
1. Full-year financial guidance for FY2020 (From April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021)

Owners of the Parent
|Change in Amount||0||7,000||7,500||7,000|
|Rate of Change||0%||6.5%||8.3%||10.3%|
|(Reference) Results for the Prior Fiscal Year||628,897||124,998||110,611||85,211||113.96|
2. Reasons for the revision
Terumo estimates that the COVID-19 impact will be limited on General Hospital Company as well as Blood and Cell Technologies Company, and relatively large on Cardiac and Vascular Company. As a whole, the pandemic will affect revenue and profit negatively.
Compared to the guidance announced on November 5, 2020, which was based on the above assumption, high margin products from business areas such as TIS and Neurovascular saw a greater recovery in demand, as well as more visible effects from company-wide effort to appropriately withhold SG&A expenses. As a result, during the third quarter, revenue and all profits exceeded the prior guidance.
Meanwhile, during the fourth quarter, while Terumo expects revenue to decrease due to worldwide resurgence of COVID-19, the company strives to mitigate its negative impact on profits by continued control of SG&A expenses.
As such, the company will not revise its guidance on revenue, but will make an upward revision to the adjusted operating profit, operating profit, and profit for the year attributable to the owners of the parent.
