*In order to strengthen our system proposal capabilities, in January 2012 the former Electric Systems Business Group's Engine Electrical Systems Business Unit and EHV Components Business Unit were incorporated into the Powertrain Control Systems Business Group, and its Electric Control Components Division was transferred to the Information & Safety System Business Group. The reorganization has reduced DENSO’s business groups from five to four. Product sales for the fiscal year under review are listed based on the prior scheme.
