Growth in royalty income

• Royalty income reached ¥127.1 billion (up 2.1% year on year) on the back of a steady increase in global product sales in the HIV franchise.

• Dividend income was stable, underpinned by favorable earnings at ViiV Healthcare’s global HIV business.

• Shionogi received milestone payments from Roche in connection with progress in global development for the flu drug Xofluza, but the amount was less than in the previous year when multiple payments were received

Return on equity (ROE),*1 return on invested capital (ROIC),*2 and cash conversion cycle (CCC)*3 were set as key indicators for the quantitative targets of growth, efficiency, and shareholder returns in the previous Medium-Term Business Plan (SGS2020) updated in October 2016. In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, ROE was 15.5% (down 2.3 points year on year), ROIC was 13.2% (down 0.8 point), and CCC was 7.7 months (a 1.1 month improvement from the previous year). Moving forward, we will work to achieve the management indicators set out in STS2030.
Return on Equity (ROE)

* Return on equity: Profit attributable to owners of parent ÷ (Shareholders’ equity + accumulated other comprehensive income) × 100 (%)

* Return on invested capital: After-tax operating income ÷ (Interest bearing debt + Shareholders’ equity + Non-controlling interests) × 100 (%)

* Cash conversion cycle: The number of days between investing cash (for raw materials, product purchases, etc.) and the time when that is ultimately converted into cash again. (This indicator is used for capital efficiency.)
