Summary

The first-quarter business environment was characterized by continued COVID-19 impact, new logistical challenges involving supply-chain disruptions, and higher prices for raw materials, energy and other resources. The Japanese yen weakened sharply due to rising U.S. interest rates. Nonetheless, strong demand and capital investments continued in 5G and semiconductor-related markets, which contribute substantially to the company’s overall business.

Total first-quarter revenue increased by JPY71,242 (USD520) million, or 16.9% over the prior first quarter, to a record high of JPY491,954 (USD3,591) million. This achievement resulted in part from the company’s own increased capital investment in new manufacturing capacity, especially in components businesses, with other sales revenue gains led by the industrial tools unit.

Profit also increased compared to the prior-year period, as a result of increased sales, the favorable cost-structure impact of a depreciating Japanese yen, and efforts to improve productivity in each division. Operating profit increased by JPY9,052 (USD66) million, or 28.0%, to JPY41,428 (USD302) million; profit before income taxes increased by JPY14,235 (USD104) million, or 26.1%, to JPY68,711 (USD502) million; and profit attributable to owners of the parent increased by JPY9,214 (USD67) million, or 22.6%, to JPY49,974 (USD365) million.

Averaged exchange rates during the first quarter show the Japanese yen weakened against both the U.S. dollar (by 19.3%, to JPY130) and the euro (by 4.5%, to JPY138), compared to the prior first quarter. This had the effect of increasing sales revenue by approximately JPY44 billion (USD321 million), and increasing profit before income taxes by approximately JPY11.5 billion (USD84 million).

Consolidated Forecasts: Year Ending March 31, 2023

Although uncertainty regarding inflation, global logistics, and pandemic-related impacts will continue in the second quarter (i.e., the three months ending Sept. 30, 2022) and beyond, the company aims to achieve its full-year forecasts by responding swiftly to anticipated demand, particularly in 5G and semiconductor-related markets. With first-quarter results generally rising within the range of projections, the company’s consolidated financial forecasts for the full year ending March 31, 2023 (“fiscal 2023”) remain unchanged from those announced in April 2022.
