Operating profit decreased 214.8 billion yen (US$2.0 Billion) to an operating loss of 88.8 billion yen (US$819.4 million), a 170.4 percent reduction from the previous year, due to quality improvement efforts and COVID-19 effects.

Operating profit totaled 23.5 billion yen (US$217.1 million), a 20.6 percent decrease from the previous year due to the production volume decrease, increases in expenses for R&D and investments to expand electrification production capabilities.

In Europe, revenue totaled 583.3 billion yen (US$5.4 billion), a 10.6 percent decrease from the previous year. Production volume decreases and labor cost increases led to a drop in operating profit to 14.4 billion yen (US$132.5 million), a 37.1 percent decrease from the previous year.
