The economy in the first quarter, from April through June 2022, of fiscal 2023 generally continued to see recovery in the corporate and household sectors in the U.S., while there was downward pressure on the corporate and household sectors due to the impact of lockdown caused by the expansion of COVID-19 in China. In Japan and Europe, the pace of recovery slowed down due primarily to a decrease in production. There was also the impact of the rise in a part of material prices and high logistics costs as well as the prolonged components shortage.

Revenue

Revenue increased by 1.2 billion yen year-on-year to 1,067.7 billion yen owing primarily to the weaker yen, despite a decrease due mainly to the impact of Shanghai’s lockdown. The Infrastructure segment saw decreases in revenue in all of its businesses: the public utility systems, the energy systems, and the defense & space systems. The Life segment saw an increase in the building systems business and a decrease in the air conditioning systems & home products business. The Industry and Mobility segment saw an increase in the automotive equipment business and a decrease in the factory automation systems business. The Business Platform segment saw increases in both of its businesses: the information systems & network service and the semiconductor & device.

Operating profit

Operating profit decreased by 48.8 billion yen year-on-year to 33.9 billion yen due mainly to decreases in the Life segment, the Industry and Mobility segment and the Infrastructure segment, despite an increase in the Business Platform segment. Operating profit ratio decreased by 4.6 points year-on-year to 3.2% due mainly to deteriorated cost ratio.

The cost ratio deteriorated by 2.5 points year-on-year despite the weaker yen, primarily as there was the impact of the rise in material prices and a deterioration in the Life segment, whose production level was lower due to the electronic components shortage. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 21.5 billion yen year-on-year, and the selling, general and administrative expenses to revenue ratio deteriorated by 2.0 points year-on-year. Other profit (loss) decreased by 0.3 billion yen year-on-year and the other profit (loss) to revenue ratio deteriorated by 0.1 points year-on-year.

Profit before income taxes

Profit before income taxes decreased by 42.6 billion yen year-on-year to 46.8 billion yen due primarily to a decrease in operating profit. The profit before income taxes to revenue ratio was 4.4%.

Net profit attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation stockholders

Net profit attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation stockholders decreased by 28.3 billion yen year-on-year to 33.4 billion yen due mainly to a decrease in profit before income taxes. The net profit attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation stockholders to revenue ratio was 3.1%.
