Consolidated Financial Results
The business environment in the first quarter of the fiscal year 2015 as
a whole saw ongoing gradual expansion around the world, owing to
economic stability in the U.S., gradual economic recovery in Europe, a
slightly mitigated slowdown in China and other factors, while the
Japanese economy experienced an upward trend in the commercial sector
despite a backlash due to the last-minute surge in demand experienced
before the rise in consumption tax.
Under these circumstances, consolidated net sales in the first quarter
increased by 9% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year
to 910.6 billion yen, owing to such factors as increased sales in the
Energy and Electric Systems, Industrial Automation Systems, Electronic
Devices and Home Appliances segments. Consolidated operating income
increased by 73% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year
to 59.3 billion yen, due to higher profits in the Industrial Automation
Systems, Electronic Devices and Home Appliances segments.
Forecast for Fiscal 2015With
mainly the Industrial Automation Systems segment expected to see growth
owing to increased demand for capital expenditures in Japan, China and
other Asian countries, and due to an increase in car sales outside
Japan, Mitsubishi Electric's business performance for the current fiscal
year is expected to exceed its previous forecast. Therefore, the
consolidated earnings forecast for the first half of fiscal 2015, ending
September 30, 2014, and for fiscal 2015, ending March 31, 2015, have
been revised from the announcement on April 28, 2014 as stated below.
