Results for Fiscal 2013 and Growth Strategies

  FY 2013 FY 2012 Change YoY
Sales (Billions of yen) 1057.5 940.4 +12.5%

In fiscal 2013, increased automobile production in Japan, expanded sales in North America, and good performance by Japanese manufacturers in Asia & Oceania, apart from China contributed to performance.

In fiscal 2014, as demand for fuel efficiency rises, we plan to differentiate ourselves from our competitors through technologies that provide genuinely greater efficiency. Also, in emerging markets such as China, where further growth is expected, we plan to review our development and design systems, increase localized procurement, and further expand sales in order to provide low-cost products that meet local needs.

There is a need to expand new businesses outside the automobile field, and also aftermarket businesses. We aim to expand the new business area of microgrids*. In the aftermarket business, we plan to invest in cost-competitive products suited to market needs and products with our proprietary technology at the core.

*Small-scale energy networks linking energy sources with consuming facilities with almost no reliance on power from large-scale power plants
