The fiscal year ended March 31, 2013 the business environment continued to be severe with the stagnation in the recovery trend in Europe, slowdown in Chinese economy and slower economic recovery in Japan than expected, despite the yen becoming weaker since the latter half of the third quarter of fiscal 2013 as well as a generally stable economic strength underlying to the U.S. and in emerging countries.
Under these circumstances, the Mitsubishi Electric Group has been working even harder than before to promote growth strategies that take root in its advantages, in addition to continuously implementing the initiatives to strengthen its competitiveness and business structure.
As a result, Mitsubishi Electric has recorded consolidated net sales of 3,567.1 billion yen for fiscal year 2013, decreased by 2% compared to the previous fiscal year due to such factors as decreased sales in the Industrial Automation Systems, Electronic Devices and Home Appliances segments. Consolidated operating income for fiscal year 2013 decreased by 33% compared to the previous fiscal year to 152.0 billion yen, mainly due to lower profits in the Industrial Automation Systems, Information and Communication Systems and Electronic Devices segments. Income before income taxes decreased by 71% compared to the previous fiscal year to 65.1 billion yen largely as a result of recording 75.7 billion yen as a non-operating expense for refund of overcharged expenses to certain parties in the electronic systems business. Net income attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation for fiscal year 2013 decreased by 38% compared to the previous fiscal year to 69.5 billion yen due to decrease in tax expenses.
CURRENT FORECAST FOR FISCAL 2014
There is a concern about the global economic trend such as the slowdown affecting growth in Chinese and Indian markets as well as the prolonged stagnation of recovery in the European market, while we expect a generally stable economic strength in the U.S. and gradual trend of growth in the emerging markets. The Japanese market is also expected to see a recovery based on the weakened yen and increasing public investment since the latter half of the third quarter of fiscal 2013.
Under these circumstances, the Mitsubishi Electric Group will proceed in strongly pushing forward its growth strategies including the expansion of its global business, promotion of environment-related businesses and strengthening of its social infrastructure business. To bolster initiatives in continuously achieving its management targets, Mitsubishi Electric Group will continue to increase and strengthen profitability in each business and is committed to continuously implement various Group-wide measures toward uplifting its business performance and financial standing.
