Consolidated operating profit for the fiscal year amounted to 726.3 billion yen, a decrease of 12.9% compared to the previous fiscal year, due primarily to the impact to Europe related to changes of the global automobile production network and capability as well as unfavorable currency effects.

Consolidated profit for the fiscal year attributable to owners of the parent amounted to 610.3 billion yen, a decrease of 42.4% compared to the previous fiscal year, due primarily to the reverse effect from the impact of a reduction of corporate tax rates in the U.S. (346.1 billion yen)(1) recorded in the previous fiscal year.

Consolidated sales revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter (January 1, 2019 through March 31, 2019) amounted to 4,049.1 billion yen, an increase of 3.4% compared to the same period last year, due primarily to an increase in sales revenue from automobile and financial services businesses. Consolidated operating profit for the fiscal fourth quarter amounted to 42.3 billion yen, a decrease of 66.6% compared to the same period last year, due primarily to the impact to Europe related to changes of the global automobile production network and capability as well as unfavorable currency effects.
