Global automotive supplier DENSO Corporation today announced its global financial results for the nine months of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018:

– Consolidated profit attributable to owners of the parent company totaled 251.3 billion yen (US$2.2 billion), a 31.6 percent increase from the previous year.

“DENSO’s revenue rose due to an increase in vehicle production, as well as sales expansion. In addition, newly consolidated subsidiaries contributed to growth in revenue. DENSO’s operating profit also saw an increase due to a rise in production volume and company cost reduction efforts,” said Yasushi Matsui, executive director of DENSO Corporation.

In Japan, a rise in vehicle production and newly consolidated subsidiaries resulted in an increase in revenue to 2,231.7 billion yen (US$19.7 billion), a 12.6 percent growth from the previous year. As a result of the increase in production volume and cost reduction efforts, the operating profit totaled 161.1 billion yen (US$1.4 billion), a 50.8 percent improvement from the previous year.

In North America, a sales expansion led to a rise in revenue to 840.2 billion yen (US$7.4 billion), a 7.5 percent increase from the previous year. On the other hand, the operating profit totaled 31.2 billion yen (US$0.3 billion), which resulted in a 28.3 percent decrease from the previous year due, which is attributed to increases in depreciation.

In Europe, a rise in both vehicle production and sales expansion led to an increase in revenue to 476.8 billion yen (US$4.2 billion), a 14.4 percent increase from the previous year. Due to depreciation increases, operating profit decreased to 14.0 billion yen (US$0.1 billion), a 1.9 percent decrease from the previous year.

In Asia, an increase in both vehicle production and sales expansion resulted in an increase in revenue to 973.9 billion yen (US$8.6 billion), a 16.0 percent rise from the previous year. As a result of the increase in production volume, an operating profit totaled 100.6 billion yen (US$0.9 billion), a 25.0 percent growth from the previous year.
