S ummary

This first half was characterized by a significant increase in demand, especially from 5G- and semiconductor-related markets, as compared to a prior-year period constrained by initial COVID-19 impacts. The company concentrated on increasing orders, striving to raise production volumes and productivity alongside a medium-term strategic investment in facilities that we initiated in fiscal 2019. Consequently, first-half sales and profit increased significantly in all business segments.

Sales revenue increased 25.9% over the prior first half, to JPY876,337 (USD7,824) million, marking a record. Operating profit increased 214.5%, to JPY75,679 (USD676) million; profit before income taxes increased 105.9%, to JPY99,351 (USD887) million; and profit attributable to owners of the parent increased 113.1%, to JPY73,219 (USD654) million.

First-half average exchange rates show the Japanese yen weakened against both the U.S. dollar (by 2.8%, to JPY110) and the euro (by 8.3%, to JPY131) as compared to the prior first half. After yen conversion, first-half sales revenue and profit before income taxes consequently rose by approximately JPY26 billion (USD232 million) and JPY9 billion (USD80 million), respectively, due to these exchange rate fluctuations.

Consolidated Forecasts: Year Ending March 31, 2022

First-half results, especially in the components business, exceeded projections. Strong demand from 5G- and semiconductor-related markets is expected to continue in the second half, but concern over supply shortages involving semiconductors and other components will continue as well. Although uncertainty remains, the company has upwardly revised its consolidated financial forecasts for the full year ending March 31, 2022 after carefully considering all factors, including first-half results and second-half demand outlook.

The company has also revised its currency-exchange outlook for the second half, and now forecasts average exchange rates of JPY110 (originally JPY105) to the U.S. dollar and JPY130 (originally JPY125) to the euro for the full year.

We will pursue continued growth in order bookings and sales revenue, and improve productivity further to achieve the revised forecast of consolidated financial results outlined in the table below.
