Results for 2Q of FY2022 (from January 1 to June 30, 2022)
During the period from January to June of the fiscal year under review, the Japanese economy continued to show signs of picking up as the severe impact of COVID-19 was mitigated. Consumer spending, particularly service consumption in the travel and restaurant industries, recovered. Corporate capital spending showed signs of recovery, reflecting improvements in overseas economies and the normalization of domestic economic and social activities. In particular, appetite for IT investment in manufacturing and financial businesses is high and remains strong. Meanwhile, some companies are showing weakness due to supply constraints such as semiconductor shortages and disruptions in supply chains, as well as the increase of raw material prices attributable to the affairs of Ukraine, among other factors.
In these situations, the Group recorded net sales of 289,873 million yen (up 5.4% year on year), reflecting rises in sales from SI services and security-related products and services against the backdrop of active corporate IT investment, and higher sales of semiconductor manufacturing-related equipment in particular on the back of aggressive investment by domestic semiconductor manufacturers.
Looking at profit, operating income was 27,832 million yen (up 35.2% year on year), ordinary income was 28,414 million yen (up 32.0% year on year), and net income attributable to owners of parent was 19,372 million yen (up 28.7% year on year), mainly reflecting an increase in the weighting of high value-added products and services, particularly in the IT Solutions business of the Enterprise segment.
