Olympus upgrades after Covid-19 recovery

Sales have increased in the US, Europe, and its homecountry of Japan, reports medtech company Olympus, as it upgrades its operating profit expectations for the next financial year.

Japanese Olympus, a competitor to Danish Ambu within the endoscope market, has upgraded its guidance for the skewed fiscal year 2021/2022. The Japenese company now thinks full-year operating profits of JPY 144bn (USD 1.27bn) are likely, up from JPY 140bn (USD 1.23bn).

According to analysts' estimates collected by Bloomberg News, this was an anticipated move after the Olympus's operating profits ended the 2020/2021 fiscal year at JPY 143.29bn (USD 1.26bn).
