Financial Highlights

Results for 2Q of FY2023 (from April 1 to June 30, 2023)

During the period from April to June of the fiscal year under review, the Japanese economy continued to show signs of a moderate recovery. Consumer spending was on moderate recovery track, reflecting increasing travel and restaurant meals as a result of changes in basic policies for addressing COVID-19 infections and a recovery in inbound tourism consumption. Corporate capital expenditure was robust as a result of the normalization of economic activity. In particular, appetite for IT investment in manufacturing and financial businesses and a wide range of other sectors was high and remained strong.

Under such economic conditions, the Canon Marketing Japan Group recorded net sales of 302,778 million yen (up 4.5% year on year), primarily attributable to rises in sales from SI services and IT infrastructure services against the backdrop of active corporate IT investment, recovery in the supply of multi-functional printers (MFP) for offices, and buoyant sales of the new camera with interchangeable lenses.
In terms of profit, operating income decreased 2.7% year on year, to 27,091 million yen, ordinary income fell 2.0%, to 27,857 million yen year on year, and net income attributable to owners of parent declined 3.7% year on year, to 18,661 million yen, reflecting higher advertising expenses, IT expenses and other SG&A expenses, which offset the rise in gross profit associated with higher sales.
