DENSO Announces First-quarter Financial Results
July 31, 2018

 KARIYA (Japan) ?Global automotive supplier DENSO Corporation today announced its global financial results for the first quarter ending June 30, 2018 for fiscal year ending March 31, 2019:

Consolidated revenue totaled 1,331.2 billion yen (US$12.0 billion), a 14.3 percent increase from the previous year.
Consolidated operating profit totaled 90.9 billion yen (US$822.1 million), a 2.4 percent decrease from the previous year.
Consolidated profit attributable to owners of the parent company totaled 77.3 billion yen (US$699.2 million), a 0.8 percent increase from the previous year.
"DENSO’s revenue rose due to an increase in global vehicle production, as well as sales expansion. In addition, newly consolidated subsidiaries, DENSO TEN and TD mobile, contributed to growth in revenue. Despite a rise in production volume and cost reduction efforts, DENSO’s operating profit decreased due to an increase in investment for future growth toward becoming a leading mobility supplier,” said Yasushi Matsui, executive director of DENSO Corporation.

In Japan, a rise in vehicle production and an increase in vehicles equipped with safety-related products, as well as the impact from the newly consolidated subsidiaries resulted in an increase in revenue to 778.8 billion yen (US$7.0 billion), a 15.3 percent growth from the previous year. Despite a rise in production volume and cost-reduction efforts, an increase in investment for future growth led to a drop in operating profit to 34.1 billion yen (US$308.4 million), an 8.7 percent down from the previous year.

In North America, a rise in both vehicle production and sales expansion led to an increase in revenue to 310.9 billion yen (US$2.8 billion), a 10.6 percent increase from the previous year. Operating profit totaled 11.6 billion yen (US$105.3 million), a 31.4 percent decrease from the previous year due to the increase in expenses for R&D, variance of periods in collecting application fees and the investments for expanding production capabilities.

In Europe, a rise in vehicle production led to an increase in revenue to 182.0 billion yen (US$1.6 billion), a 14.0 percent increase from the previous year. As a result of the increase in production volume and cost-reduction efforts, operating profit totaled 7.0 billion yen (US$63.6 million), a 20.5 percent increase from the previous year.

In Asia, a rise in vehicle production led to an increase in revenue to 358.1 billion yen (US$3.2 billion), a 19.5 percent rise from the previous year. As a result of the increase in production volume and cost-reduction efforts, operating profit totaled 33.7 billion yen (US$304.9 million), an 18.2 percent growth from the previous year.
