Toyota Announces First Half Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

Toyota City, Japan, Nov 5, 2012 - (JCN Newswire) - Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) announces its financial results today for the six months ended September 30, 2012.

On a consolidated basis, net revenues for the first half of the fiscal year totaled 10.9 trillion yen, an increase of 36.1 percent compared to the same period last fiscal year. Operating income increased from a loss of 32.6 billion yen to 693.7 billion yen, an increase of 726.3 billion yen, while income before income taxes* was 794.5 billion yen. Net income** increased from 81.5 billion yen to 548.2 billion yen.

Major factors contributing to the operating income increase include the positive effects from marketing activities of 580.0 billion yen and cost reduction efforts of 230.0 billion yen. Negative effects of currency fluctuations decreased operating income by 60.0 billion yen.

Consolidated vehicle sales for the first half totaled 4.516 million units, an increase of 1.490 million units compared to the same period last fiscal year.

Commenting on the first half results, TMC Executive Vice President Satoshi Ozawa said: "For the first six months of this financial year, we have seen a significant increase in production in all regions compared to the same period last year when we suffered parts-supply shortages due to the Great East Japan Earthquake. Our business results on a consolidated basis also show increased profits over the same period last year. Although the strong yen continued to affect us, government measures in various countries and regions to spur demand increased vehicle sales and our companywide cost-improvement efforts continued to bear fruit."

In Japan, vehicle sales totaled 1.192 million units, an increase of 395 thousand units compared to the same period last fiscal year. Operating income from Japanese operations increased by 526.7 billion yen to 250.8 billion yen.

In North America, vehicle sales totaled 1.261 million units, an increase of 572 thousand units compared to the same period last fiscal year. Operating income increased by 121.0 billion yen to 182.6 billion yen, including 28.0 billion yen of valuation gains/losses on interest rate swaps. Operating income, excluding the impact of valuation gains/losses on interest rate swaps, increased by 108.7 billion yen to 154.6 billion yen.

In Europe, vehicle sales totaled 412 thousand units, an increase of 51 thousand units compared to the same period last fiscal year, while operating income increased by 13.9 billion yen to 12.0 billion yen.

In Asia, vehicle sales totaled 840 thousand units, an increase of 225 thousand units compared to the same period last fiscal year, while operating income increased by 63.9 billion yen to 194.5 billion yen.

In Central and South America, Oceania and Africa, vehicle sales totaled 811 thousand units, an increase of 247 thousand units compared to the same period last fiscal year, while operating income increased by 0.6 billion yen to 58.7 billion yen.

In the financial services segment, operating income increased by 3.4 billion yen to 174.5 billion yen compared to the same period last fiscal year, including 26.6 billion yen of valuation gains/losses on interest rate swaps. Excluding valuation gains/losses, operating income decreased by 15.5 billion yen to 147.8 billion yen. This was mainly due to reduced reversal of provisions for loan and residual losses in comparison to the same period last year.

TMC today revises its consolidated vehicle sales forecast for the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2013 from 8.800 million units to 8.750 million units, a decrease of 50 thousand units from TMC's forecast announced in August 2012, due to uncertainties in the Chinese and European market environments.

TMC also revises its consolidated financial forecasts for fiscal year 2013 to consolidated net revenue of 21.3 trillion yen, operating income of 1.05 trillion yen, income before income taxes of 1.18 trillion yen and net income of 780.0 billion yen, with the revision of an exchange rate of 79 yen to the U.S. dollar and 100 yen to the euro.

Commenting on the forecasts for FY2013, Ozawa said: "Although currency fluctuations have continued to affect our profits and the effect of current Japan-China relations on our sales is still unclear, we have revised the forecast we announced at the end of the first quarter to reflect the progress we have been making in our profit improvement activities. We intend to continue strengthening such activities and aim to create a profit structure able to withstand changes in the business environment."

TMC also announces an interim cash dividend of 30 yen per share, in consideration of such factors as operating results and investment plans.

* Income before income taxes and equity in earnings of affiliated companies

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
