Explanation:
I have a client this week who wants the same and I don't like it.

Business Outlook (which in the context of an Annual Report is frequently used by US/UK companies and can be distinguished from Economic Outlook which is at a macro level).

Business Outlook/Prospects/Forecast for the current financial year.

Exactly. All of those are acceptable and commonly used variations and you will even find such things as management outlook or directors' outlook but one thing I am sure is not commonly used as a section title is "foreseeable evolution". It is correct in meaning but not in usage.

Notes to answerer
Asker: I looked in Barclays and HSBC annual reports and they simply have "outlook" where the economic outlook has its effects on the business outlook. I use "likely outlook" or prospects.

Asker: We should try and establish some standards.
