Toyota Earnings Signal Recovery
Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE: TM) issued financial data that showed that in the short term the auto manufacturer has experienced a recovery. Toyota's fortunes mostly have gotten better since the Japanese earthquake shut many of its plants, and it went through a series of embarrassing recalls of millions of its vehicles.
The announcement of fiscal year financial results said:
On a consolidated basis, net revenues totaled 22.0 trillion yen, an increase of 18.7 percent compared to the previous fiscal year. Operating income increased from 355.6 billion yen to 1.32 trillion yen, an increase of 965.2 billion yen, while income before income taxes was 1.40 trillion yen. Net income increased from 283.5 billion yen to 962.1 billion yen.
Major factors contributing to the increase in operating income include the positive effects from marketing activities generating 650.0 billion yen, cost reduction efforts saving 450.0 billion yen and currency fluctuations of 150.0 billion yen, which offset the negative effects from related expenses of 300.0 billion yen.
Consolidated vehicle sales totaled 8.871 million units, an increase of 1.519 million units compared to the previous fiscal year.
