Osaka, Japan, July 31, 2015 --- Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (“Takeda”) today announced that it has published the Annual Report 2015, which offers a thorough look at the company's business results and Corporate Social Responsibility accomplishments in fiscal 2014, as well as strategies for fiscal 2015 and beyond.
Christophe Weber, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Since I joined the company in April 2014, our focus has been to become an agile, best-in-class global pharmaceutical company in every activity. Keeping the values of Takeda-ism (Integrity: Fairness, Honesty and Perseverance) as our foundation, we focused on the priorities of Patient (put the patient at the center), Trust (build trust with society), Reputation (reinforce our reputation), and Business (develop the business) -- in that order. Fiscal 2015 will be an extremely important year for Takeda, and we will achieve organic growth by increasing our focus on growth drivers, namely the core therapeutic areas of Gastroenterology (GI) and Oncology, and our Value Brands (branded generics and over-the-counter products) in Emerging Markets."
