Chiyoda Corp. Reports Earnings for the FY02 Full Term Ended March 31, 2003

Tokyo, May 19, 2003 - (JCN Newswire) - Chiyoda Corporation., Ltd. (TSE: 6366), one of Japan's leading integrated engineering and construction companies, reported FY02 full term earnings for the period ending March 31, 2003. New orders rose 14.3% year/year to 249.093 billion yen while construction contracts rose 17.6% year/year to 166.367 billion yen. Gross profit surged by 123.1% to 10.443 billion yen. Operating profit returned to the black for the first time in three years with a positive showing of 1.5 billion yen

The Japanese plant market is benefiting from capital investment in energy efficiency in order to reduce CO2 emissions in the petroleum industry, and the shift in the chemical industry from general chemical products to higher value-added products for the major consumer market China. Despite growth in these specific areas the overall business environment in the domestic plant market remains rather weak.

The overseas plant market was affected by some political instability in oil-producing counties with general strikes in Venezuela earlier in the year and the recent war in Iraq. Nonetheless demand has been increasing for capital expansion projects for natural gas plants in Oman, Qatar and the UAE. In the Chinese market, major American and European firms are moving ahead with large-scale petrochemical plants.

Against this operating backdrop, consolidated domestic new orders for the year dropped 23.7% to 68.650 billion yen while overseas new orders rose 40.9% year/year to 180.488 billion yen, for a total of 249.093 billion yen of new orders, a healthy increase of 14.3 % year/year.

As a result of this order trend revenue from domestic construction contracts fell 13.9% year/year to 83.053 billion yen, while revenue from overseas construction contracts rose 84.8% year/year to 83.313 billion yen. Total revenue from construction contracts came to 166.367 billion yen, an increase of 17.6% year/year.

Gross profit surged 123.1% over last year to 10.443 billion yen, while the Company's efforts to further cut selling, administrative and administration expenses contributed to the first positive operating profit in 8 years, of 1.548 billion yen. Ordinary profit was in the black for the first time in 3 years, at 2.393 billion yen, in part due to repayment of debts thereby reducing the interest burden. Net income was 1.999 billion yen, an increase of 1,546.5% year/year.

On a non-consolidated basis, the Company secured 42.820 billion yen in new domestic orders, down 30.9% year/year, and 169.417 billion yen in overseas new orders, up 39.5% year/year, for a total of 212.220 billion yen, an increase of 15.7% year/year. This performance exceeded the target of 180 billion yen by almost 20%.

Revenue from domestic construction contracts was 54.596 billion yen, a decrease of 22.7% year/year, and 75.873 billion yen from overseas construction contracts, an increase of 116.7% year/year. Overall revenue totaled 130.470 billion yen, an increase of 23.5% year/year. Gross profit surged 1,786.4% to 6.990 billion yen while operating profit was positive for the first time in 7 years at 618 million yen. The Company posted a positive ordinary profit for the first time in 3 years of 2.31 billion yen, and net income was up 4,883.1% year/year to 2.684 billion yen. The Company reached targeted positive profits for operating profit, ordinary profit and net income.

Outlook

The Japanese economy will remain in the mire for the foreseeable future, due to the effects of long-term structural problems such as the delay in writing off non-performing loans and a chronically weak stock market. However demand for energy-related investment in clean fuel and environmental equipment and new capital investment in specialty chemicals is strong. Overseas, given the still cautious outlook for the U.S. economy, the overall future investment environment looks rather uncertain. Having said that the LNG market, where Chiyoda maintains technical superiority, will benefit from the ongoing strong demand to switch to cleaner energy. And the market for large-scale petrochemical plants, of which ethylene forms the core, will continue to see active investment in the Middle East and Asia due to attractive gas prices.

Based on the business environment described above, for the fiscal year ending March 2004, the Company expects new orders to come to 270 billion yen, revenue from construction contracts of 200 billion yen, consolidated ordinary profit of 4.2 billion yen, and consolidated income of 3.4 billion yen (assuming an exchange rate of 1 dollar = 120 yen). These forecasts are founded on the expectation that large-scale LNG facility construction projects, primarily overseas, will progress from the planning to the construction stage.

The Company expects on a non-consolidated basis, new orders of 230 billion yen, revenue from construction contracts totaling 160 billion yen, ordinary profit of 3.5 billion yen, and net income of 3.3 billion yen for the next fiscal year.
