The fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 the business environment generally showed gradual expansion in economies outside Japan, in addition to recovery in Japan where corporate sentiments improved owing to weaker yen and other factors.

Under these circumstances, the Mitsubishi Electric Group has been working even harder than before to promote growth strategies that take root in its advantages, in addition to continuously implementing the initiatives to strengthen its competitiveness and business structure.

As a result, Mitsubishi Electric has recorded consolidated net sales of 4,054.3 billion yen for fiscal year 2014, increased by 14% compared to the previous fiscal year with increased revenues in all business segments. Consolidated operating income for fiscal year 2014 increased by 55% compared to the previous fiscal year to 235.1 billion yen, mainly due to increased profits in the Industrial Automation Systems, Information and Communication Systems, Electronic Devices and Home Appliances segments.

Despite concerns on a consumption downturn in Japanese market due to the consumption tax raise and on uncertainty in emerging markets, Mitsubishi Electric expects the trend of gradual economic recovery to continue both inside and outside Japan.

Under these circumstances, the Mitsubishi Electric Group aims to uplift the business performance and financial standing to achieve its management targets by promoting more strongly its global operations in its environment and energy related business and its social infrastructure systems business, by continuously increasing and strengthening profitability in each business and by continuously implementing various Group-wide measures.
