FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation (FUJIY - Free Report) continues to boost its organic growth trajectory on the back of a number of new imaging solutions contract wins.

Over the last month, Fujifilm’s shares yielded a return of 3.6%, as against the loss of 25% incurred by the industry.

FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. (FUJIFILM Medical Systems) recently secured seven enterprise imaging solutions contracts from healthcare providers like Greater Hudson Valley Health System, Hackensack Meridian Health, Halifax Health, Valley Medical Center, West Virginia University Health System, Elliot Hospital and Capital Health.

Receipt of such lucrative contracts proves that FUJIFILM Medical Systems is currently recognized as a major enterprise imaging partner across the nation. The company owns a wide range of Synapse Enterprise Imaging portfolio of non-imitable technologies which outspread the conventional cardiology and radiology imaging areas.

Per the above-mentioned deals, FUJIFILM Medical Systems will supply various products such as Synapse VNA, Synapse Cardiovascular, Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer, Synapse Cloud Services and Synapse 5 PACS to the healthcare providers.

Our Take

Fujifilm currency carries a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). We believe that headwinds such as further appreciation of the Japanese Yen, depreciation of Asian currencies, stronger industry specific rivalry and the Brexit-induced uncertain macroeconomic environment in Europe will likely make matters worse for the company, moving ahead.

However, amid all headwinds, Fujifilm is poised to grow on the back of such above discussed business contracts. Furthermore, near-term profitability is anticipated to improve on the back of the three major pillars – efficient management, expansion of international operations and launch of businesses.
