Summary

While many manufacturers continue to experience supply-chain challenges, including a semiconductor shortage and rising materials costs, the global economy generally recovered in fiscal year 2022 amid a wider availability of COVID-19 vaccines in many regions.

Kyocera achieved higher sales and profit in all business segments compared to the prior year, with the improved business environment bringing especially strong demand for components used in 5G communications and semiconductor-related markets. As a result, consolidated sales revenue reached a record JPY1,838,938 (USD15,073) million in fiscal year 2022, rising 20.4% over the prior year.

Profit increased as well, reflecting higher sales revenue, gains in productivity and cost reduction in each segment, and the absence of an impairment loss of approximately JPY11.5 billion (USD94 million) that was recorded in the smart energy business in the prior year. As a result, operating profit increased by 110.8% over the prior year, to JPY148,910 (USD1,221) million; profit before income taxes increased by 69.2%, to JPY198,947 (USD1,631) million; and profit attributable to owners of the parent increased by 64.5%, to JPY148,414 (USD1,217) million.

Average exchange rates for the period show the Japanese yen weakened by 5.7% against the U.S. dollar, to JPY112, and 5.6% against euro, to JPY131. As a result, sales revenue and profit before income taxes were pushed up by approximately JPY68 billion (USD557 million), and JPY20 billion (USD164 million), respectively, compared to the prior year.

Consolidated Forecasts: Year Ending March 31, 2023

Despite uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, inflation, continuing supply-chain challenges, and geopolitical instability, demand for components used in 5G and semiconductor-related markets is expected to remain robust during the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023. Kyocera aims to achieve its medium-term sales revenue goal of JPY2 trillion (USD17 billion), while further increasing profitability, by introducing new products, accelerating new business development, and making capital investments to enhance manufacturing capabilities and capacities.

We expect exchange rates of JPY115 to the U.S. dollar and JPY125 to the euro during the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023.
