In the first quarter of the current fiscal year, the Japanese economy continued to recover slowly as corporate earnings grew, the number of jobs and personal income increased. However, the outlook remains unclear because of worries of an overseas economic downturn and the rising cost of raw materials and consumer products.
In this environment, the AOKI Group implemented various measures in each business segment as discussed below. Sales increased 3.0% year-on-year to 45,205 million yen, operating profit increased 22.7% to 2,603 million yen, ordinary income increased 22.4% to 2,614 million yen and profit attributable to owners of parent increased 18.1% to 1,848 million yen.
First quarter sales were slightly less than the forecast but segment profit (operating profit) was as planned. As a result, there are no revisions to the fiscal year forecast that was announced on May 8, 2015.
