Progress Under the Mid-term Policy

Key Points
While global automobile production increased 5% year on year, our sales increased 13.5% meaning our sales growth surpassed the increase in production.
Including exchange gains from capacity utilization gains and the depreciation of the yen in the second half of the fiscal year, operating income grew significantly, rising 63.2% year on year.
Further growth is expected for the next fiscal year due to the slow recovery in the global economy, except for Europe, and the continuing positive effects of the depreciation of the yen.
