Forecast for Fiscal 2022
The business environment surrounding the Group remains to be unpredictable primarily due to the worldwide shortage of semiconductors and price hike in raw materials and energy. On the one hand, the Group forecasts strong demand for applications in industrial robots, collaborative robots, and semiconductor manufacturing equipment, which is backed by vigorous demand for capital investment following accelerating electrification of vehicles worldwide, and ongoing capital investment to satisfy voracious appetite for semiconductors. In addition, opportunity for further growth is likely in the new market where we have put our focus, such as advanced medical applications (surgical robot-related) and automotive.
For the consolidated earnings for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023, based on the above business environment, the Group forecasts net sales of ¥75,000 million, operating profit of ¥13,000 million, ordinary profit of ¥13,000 million, and profit attributable to owners of parent of ¥9,000 million.
