DENSO Announces Third-quarter Financial Results
 
- Upward revision to the full-year forecast -

Kariya, Japan, Feb 4, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - DENSO Corporation today announced its third quarter global financial results for the nine months ending Dec. 31, 2013:

- Consolidated net sales totaled 3,016.6 billion yen (US$28.8 billion), a 17.4 percent increase from the previous year.
- Consolidated operating income totaled 289.9 billion yen (US$2.8 billion), a 54.2 percent increase from the previous year.
- Consolidated net income totaled 225.6 billion yen (US$2.2 billion), a 72.5 percent increase from the previous year.

"The sales and operating income increased due to an increase in car production mainly in North America, in addition to the impact of the weak yen," said Kenichiro Ito, executive director of DENSO Corporation.

In Japan, although car production level was the same as the previous year, the increase of export sales and the effect of the weak yen led to an increase in sales to 2,020.0 billion yen (US$19.3 billion), an 11.1 percent increase from the previous year. Also, despite an increase mainly in R&D expenses, the increase in production volume and the currency exchange gain, in addition to the cost reduction effort, led to an operating income of 220.1 billion yen (US$2.1 billion), a 75.6 percent increase from the previous year.

In North America, an increase in car production and the impact of the weak yen led to an increase in sales to 599.8 billion yen (US$5.7 billion), a 33.2 percent increase from the previous year. As a result of the increase in production volume, the operating income totaled 11.7 billion yen (US$111.3 million), a 26.3 percent increase from the previous year.

In Europe, the gradual recovery from the economic slump and the effect of the weak yen led to an increase in sales to 355.7 billion yen (US$3.4 billion), a 37.1 percent increase from the previous year. As a result of the increase in production volume, the operating income totaled 6.5 billion yen (US$61.6 million), a 687.7 percent increase from the previous year.

In Asia and Oceania, the increase in car production mainly in China and the effect of the weak yen resulted in a sales increase to 707.7 billion yen (US$6.7 billion), a 30.9 percent increase from the previous year. Despite an increase in labor costs, the increase in production volume and the currency exchange gain led to an operating income of 58.6 billion yen (US$559.1 million), a 10.4 percent increase from the previous year.

In other areas, mainly the South American region, including countries such as Brazil and Argentina, sales totaled 56.2 billion yen (US$535.5 million), a 22.7 percent increase from the previous year. The operating income totaled 402.5 million yen (US$3.8 million), an 84.2 percent decrease from the previous year.

"Considering business conditions, such as an increase in car production mainly in Japan and the depreciation of the yen, we have decided to upwardly revise the original forecasts for the full-year financial results, " said Ito.

(Foreign exchange rates used for fourth quarter are US$= 104 yen Euro= 142 yen, and for the full-year are: US$= 100 yen Euro=135 yen)
