for the Nine Months of FYE2024
Tokyo, February 8, 2024 – Subaru Corporation today announced its consolidated financial results for the nine months ended December 31, 2023.
Results for April–December 2023: Consolidated Revenue
Global production increased 12.7% to 757,000 units due to continued initiatives in production and parts procurement.
Production in Japan rose 7.3% to 491,000 units, while production in the U.S. grew 24.3% to 266,000 units.
As a result of the production increase, global unit sales rose 15.8% to 736,000 units, led by steady sales in Subaru’s key U.S. market.
Consolidated revenue rose 24.5% to 3,496.4 billion yen, due to factors including the increase in sales volume and the positive impact of foreign exchange rates.
Results for April–December 2023: Consolidated Profit and Loss
As factors such as the increase in sales volume and the positive impact of foreign exchange rates more than offset the increases in SG&A expenses and raw material costs, operating profit rose 73.6% to 371.0 billion yen, profit before tax grew 93.5% to 416.2 billion yen, and profit for the period attributable to owners of parent increased 93.5% to 298.9 billion yen.
Forecast for FYE2024
As the positive impact of foreign exchange rates and an improvement in sales mix are expected to more than offset an increase in SG&A expenses, a decrease in sales volume, and potential parts supply constraints, the Company is revising upward its previous forecasts for FYE 2024 (announced on November 2, 2023) as follows:
Forecasts for FYE2024 are based on exchange rate assumptions of 143 yen to the U.S. dollar and 154 yen to the euro.
Notes on figures in the results:
Vehicle volume figures are rounded to the nearest thousand. Yen figures are rounded to the nearest hundred million.
