The economy in the first quarter, from April through June 2019, of fiscal 2020 saw an expansion in the U.S. mainly owing to buoyant consumer consumption, while China experienced a slowdown in economic growth. In addition, Japan saw decreases in export and production, and Europe also experienced a decrease in production, making the economic recovery trend in both markets more moderate.

Under these circumstances, revenue in the first quarter remained substantially unchanged compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year to 1,050.7 billion yen with increased revenue in the Energy and Electric Systems, Information and Communication Systems and Home Appliances segments, as well as decreased revenue in the Industrial Automation Systems and Electronic Devices segments.

Operating profit decreased by 11% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year to 54.9 billion yen, due to decreased profits in the Industrial Automation Systems and Electronic Devices segments.
