Consolidated Results of Operations: Three Months Ended June 30
In the Components Business, sales revenue from the Electronic Devices Group declined due mainly to lower sales at AVX (News - Alert) Corporation, a U.S. subsidiary, alongside a general slowdown in manufacturing, particularly in the automotive industry. In the Equipment & Systems Business, sales revenue from the Document Solutions Group declined as the trend toward remote work suppressed institutional demand for office equipment and consumables. As a result, total first-quarter sales revenue decreased by JPY67,843 (USD 628) million, or 17.6%, as compared to the prior year's first quarter, to JPY317,094 (USD2,936) million.
Profit declined as well, due mainly to lower sales revenue in most business segments. Compared to the prior first quarter, operating profit decreased by JPY15,055 (USD139) million, or 66.5%, to JPY7,574 (USD70) million; profit before income taxes decreased by JPY15,075 (USD140) million, or 33.1%, to JPY30,411 (USD282) million; and profit attributable to owners of the parent decreased by JPY9,657 (USD89) million, or 30.1%, to JPY22,380 (USD207) million.
Averaged exchange rates during the first quarter show the Japanese yen strengthening against the U.S. dollar by approximately 1.8%, to JPY108; and strengthening against the euro by approximately 4.1%, to JPY118, as compared with averages from the prior first quarter. This had the effect of decreasing sales revenue by approximately JPY6 billion (USD56 million), and profit before income taxes by approximately JPY1.5 billion (USD14 million).
