“DENSO’s revenue rose due to an increase in vehicle production, as well as sales expansion. DENSO’s operating profit also saw an increase due to a rise in production volume and company cost-reduction efforts,” said Koji Arima, president and CEO of DENSO Corp.

In Japan, a rise in vehicle production and newly consolidated subsidiaries resulted in an increase in revenue to 3,083.8 billion yen (approximately $29 billion USD), a 14.8 percent growth from the previous year. As a result of the increase in production volume and cost-reduction efforts, the operating profit totaled 200.7 billion yen (approximately $1.9 billion USD), a 54.2 percent improvement from the previous year.

In North America, sales expansion led to a rise in revenue to 1,156.3 billion yen (approximately $10.9 billion USD), a 7.3 percent increase from the previous year. Operating profit totaled 42.5 billion yen (approximately $0.4 billion USD), a 29.1 percent decrease from the previous year due to an increase in depreciation.

In Asia, an increase in both vehicle production and sales expansion resulted in an increase in revenue to 1,322.8 billion yen (approximately $12.5 billion USD), a 16.1 percent rise from the previous year.

“For the new fiscal year, revenue will increase due to the increase in car production, sales expansion and the newly consolidated subsidiaries. Despite a rise in production volume and cost-reduction efforts, operating profit will decrease due to an increase in investment for future growth, in addition to the impact of the yen’s appreciation and increase of material costs,” said Arima.
