Business Plan of FYE 2021

Projection of Consolidated Results for FYE 2021

In light of the faster-than-expected sales recovery especially in the U.S., the Company revises its previous forecasts for FYE 2021 (announced on August 4, 2020) and projects consolidated global vehicle sales of 911,000 units (down 11.9% from the previous year), consolidated revenue of 2,950 billion yen (down 11.8%), operating profit of 110 billion yen (down 47.7%), profit before tax of 117 billion yen (down 43.7%), and profit for the period attributable to owners of parent of 80 billion yen (down 47.6%). The projections are based on exchange rate assumptions of 106 yen to the U.S. dollar and 120 yen to the euro.
