Summary

The unstable world situation further impacted supply chains during this first half, disrupting deliveries and creating strong inflationary pressure on the cost of raw materials. At the same time, the yen depreciated substantially in the foreign exchange market.

Despite supply and cost challenges, the company’s sales revenue reached a record first-half high, with increases in all three reporting segments compared to the prior first half. Recent capital investments in production infrastructure enabled the company to meet robust demand for components used in 5G- and semiconductor-related markets. Other notable revenue gains were made in the Industrial Tools and Document Solutions businesses. Additionally, the yen’s depreciation had the impact of increasing sales, after currency conversion, by approximately JPY103 billion (USD 710 million) compared to the prior first half. As a result, consolidated sales revenue increased by 15.5% over the prior first half, to JPY1,012,172 (USD 6,980) million.

Profits increased slightly, due mainly to an increased revenue as well as a favorable currency conversion factor, which alone added approximately JPY26 billion (USD179 million) to profit before income taxes. Together, these impacts more than offset a price increase of raw materials, a sales decrease in the Communications unit, and a one-time litigation settlement totaling approximately JPY7 billion (USD48 million).

Consolidated operating profit increased by 1.1% over the prior first half, to JPY76,488 (USD528) million; profit before income taxes increased by 5.0%, to JPY104,311 (USD719) million; and profit attributable to owners of the parent increased by 3.2%, to JPY75,586 (USD521) million.

Consolidated Forecasts: Year Ending March 31, 2023

The company’s full-year consolidated forecasts remain unchanged from those announced in April 2022. Although first-half results from the Communications unit were below forecast, consolidated results met the original projections, due mainly to increased sales of 5G- and semiconductor-related components, as well as the impact of yen depreciation. Global instability, supply challenges, rising materials costs and the prospect of a slowing economy create uncertainty for the third quarter and beyond. Nevertheless, the company will strive to acquire new business, expand sales, and further improve productivity to achieve our full-year consolidated forecasts.

The company has revised its currency exchange outlook, and now forecasts average rates of JPY134 to the U.S. dollar (from JPY115 earlier) and JPY137 to the euro (from JPY125 earlier).
