This first quarter brought increased demand in the company’s major markets, particularly semiconductor-related markets, as compared to the prior first quarter, which encompassed the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The company recorded significant increases in first quarter revenue and profit in all segments, as a result of sales expansion initiatives, a strategic production capacity expansion begun in FY19 mainly in the components segment, and continued progress in reducing cost and improving productivity companywide.
As a result, first quarter revenue increased by JPY103,618 (USD 933) million, or 32.7% over the prior first quarter, to a record high of JPY420,712 (USD3,790) million. Operating profit increased by JPY24,802 (USD223) million, or 327.5%, to JPY32,376 (USD292) million; profit before income taxes increased by JPY24,065 (USD217) million, or 79.1%, to JPY54,476 (USD491) million; and profit attributable to owners of the parent increased by JPY18,380 (USD166) million, or 82.1%, to JPY40,760 (USD367) million.
Averaged exchange rates during the first quarter show the Japanese yen weakened against both the U.S. dollar (by 0.9%, to JPY109) and the euro (by 11.9%, to JPY132), year over year. This had the effect of increasing sales revenue by approximately JPY13 billion (USD117 million), and increasing profit before income taxes by approximately JPY4.5 billion (USD41 million).
Consolidated Forecasts: Year Ending March 31, 2022
Consolidated forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022 (“fiscal 2022”) remain unchanged from those announced in April 2021, with first quarter results representing a favorable start.
The company anticipates solid demand in key markets, led by 5G components and Fine Ceramic components for semiconductor processing equipment, although the impact of semiconductor supply shortages in various markets will create continued uncertainty even after the second quarter (i.e., the three months ending Sept. 30, 2021). Amid such circumstances, the company will aim to achieve our consolidated financial forecasts through aggressive efforts both in acquiring new orders and in increasing production through capital investment, and higher productivity.
