U.S. generally accepted accounting principles

Tokyo, Aug 5, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) today announces its financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Consolidated vehicle sales for the first quarter totaled 2,241,285 units, an increase of 9,426 units compared to the same period last fiscal year. On a consolidated basis, net revenues for the period totaled 6.39 trillion yen, an increase of 2.2 percent compared to the same period last fiscal year. Operating income increased from 663.3 billion yen to 692.7 billion yen, while income before income taxes1 was 771.8 billion yen. Net income2 increased from 562.1 billion yen to 587.7 billion yen.

Operating income increased by 29.3 billion yen. Major factors contributing to the increase included cost reduction efforts of 40.0 billion yen and currency fluctuations of 30.0 billion yen.

Commenting on the results, TMC Managing Officer Takuo Sasaki said: "In addition to cost reduction efforts and favourable foreign exchange rates, valuation gains and losses mainly from interest-rate swaps were positive factors. However, changes in model mix and increases in expenses impacted us negatively."

In Japan, vehicle sales totaled 505,827 units, a decrease of 19,950 units. Operating income decreased by 90.1 billion yen to 365.9 billion yen.

In North America, vehicle sales totaled 710,409 units, an increase of 21,753 units. Operating income, excluding the impact of valuation gains/losses from interest rate swaps, increased by 46.1 billion yen to 149.7 billion yen.

In Europe, vehicle sales totaled 207,481 units, an increase of 14,970 units, while operating income increased by 5.6 billion yen to 10.8 billion yen.

In Asia, vehicle sales totaled 385,376 units, a decrease of 9,490 units, while operating income increased by 6.2 billion yen to 110.3 billion yen.

In other regions (including Central and South America, Oceania, Africa and the Middle East), vehicle sales totaled 432,192 units, an increase of 2,143 units, while operating income decreased by 8.4 billion yen to 34.0 billion yen.

For the financial services, operating income increased by 46.9 billion yen to 98.2 billion yen, including a gain of 16.1 billion yen of valuation gains/losses from interest rate swaps. Excluding valuation gains/losses, operating income increased by 3.8 billion yen to 82.0 billion yen.

For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015, TMC estimates that consolidated vehicle sales will be 9.1 million units, as announced in May.

In addition, TMC forecasts consolidated net revenue of 25.7 trillion yen, operating income of 2.3 trillion yen and net income of 1.78 trillion yen, based on an exchange rate assumption of 101 yen to the U.S. dollar and 136 yen to the euro.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
