TOKYO, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ —

  • Despite some unfavorable factors such as the semiconductor supply shortage and an increase in raw material costs, consolidated operating profit for the fiscal first quarter ended June 30, 2021 amounted to 243.2 billion yen, a year-on-year increase by 356.9 billion yen. This was due primarily to a positive effect of the company’s ongoing initiatives to solidify its existing businesses as well as an increase in unit sales compared to the same period last year which was heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Consolidated profit for the fiscal first quarter attributable to owners of the parent amounted to 222.5 billion yen, a year-on-year increase by 303.3 billion yen, due also to an increase in the share of profit of investments accounted for using the equity method.
  • Based on the forecast of a year-on-year increase in both sales revenue and profit for the current fiscal year (April 1, 2021 through March 31, 2022), the previously announced forecast for operating profit for this fiscal year was revised upward by 120.0 billion yen to 780.0 billion yen, and the previously announced forecast for profit for the fiscal year attributable to owners of the parent was revised upward by 80.0 billion yen to 670.0 billion yen.
  • Honda will acquire its own shares for the purpose, among others, of improving efficiency of its capital structure and implementing a flexible capital strategy.
