Progress in FY2014 Under the Mid-term Policy

Progress in FY2014 Under the Mid-term Policy

Key points

  • While global automobile production increased by 4.3% year on year, our sales increased by 14.4%, meaning that our sales growth surpassed the increase in production.
  • Despite the increases in expenses and labor costs, operating income grew significantly, rising 44.0% year on year, due to production volume increase and the currency exchange gain, in addition to the cost reduction effort.
  • In fiscal 2015, it is expected that the stagnation in developing countries will continue but that, overall, there will be moderate growth. In Japan, increased sales and decreased income are expected on account of the anticipated effect of the tax hike on consumer spending.
