Message from the President

I am deeply grateful for the support we have received from all our stakeholders.

Fiscal 2013, the year ended March 31, 2013, was the first year of our Global Mid-term Policy. Increased automobile sales in Japan due to the Japanese government’s eco-car subsidies increased automobile production in North America and Asia & Oceania, and exchange gains from yen depreciation led to a boost in both sales and income. Net sales rose 13.5% year on year to ¥3,580.9 billion, operating income rose 63.2% year on year to ¥262.4 billion, ordinary income rose 63.8% year on year to ¥296.0 billion, and net income rose 103.5% to ¥181.7 billion. When viewed by region, all regions except Europe showed boosted sales and income.

In April 2013, we drew up the “DENSO Group Long-term Policy 2020.” In a time when the environment is changing rapidly and it’s difficult to see what lies ahead, we determined how the DENSO Group can contribute to the society of the future. When drawing up the policy, Group associates and outside experts discussed both predictions about the 2025 business environment and their ideal future society.

The DENSO Group is striving to be a global company the people of the world can feel a connection with, its associates sharing the goal of “Protecting lives, Preserving the planet, and Preparing a bright future for generations to come.”

I appreciate the continuing support of all our stakeholders in the future.

July 2013
