Overview

(Year ended March 31, 2019)

During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019, the economy saw a buoyant expansion in the U.S. and a slight slowdown in the Chinese economy, while there were gradual trends of recovery in Japan and Europe despite a recent slowdown in some indicators such as export and production. In addition, the yen, compared to the previous fiscal year, was substantially unchanged against the U.S. dollar, and remained strong against the euro in and after August.

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

As a result, the Mitsubishi Electric Group has recorded revenue of ¥4,519.9 billion and consolidated operating profit of ¥290.4 billion for fiscal 2019. In addition profit before income taxes was ¥315.9 billion and net profit attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corp. stockholders was ¥226.6 billion.

Financial Position

(Year ended March 31, 2019)

Total assets as of the end of this fiscal year increased from the end of the previous fiscal year by 50.6 billion yen to 4,356.2 billion yen. The change in the balance of total assets was mainly due to increases in the balance of inventories by 82.8 billion yen, in contract assets by 26.7 billion yen, and in trade receivables by 15.5 billion yen, while cash and cash equivalents decreased by 84.9 billion yen.

Total liabilities decreased from the end of the previous fiscal year by 63.3 billion yen to 1,845.0 billion yen. The outstanding balances of bonds and borrowings decreased by 13.5 billion yen from the end of the previous fiscal year to 298.4 billion yen, resulting in a decline in the ratio of bonds and borrowings to total assets to 6.9%, representing a 0.3 point decrease compared to the end of the previous fiscal year. Meanwhile, trade payables decreased by 19.9 billion yen, and contract liabilities decreased by 15.0 billion yen.

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation stockholders’ equity increased by 105.7 billion yen compared to the end of the previous fiscal year to 2,399.9 billion yen. The stockholders’ equity ratio was recorded at 55.1%, representing a 1.8 point increase compared to the end of the previous fiscal year. The changes referred to above primarily resulted from an increase from recording a net profit attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation stockholders of 226.6 billion yen, despite a decrease due to dividend payment of 85.8 billion yen and a decrease in other comprehensive income of 45.6 billion yen reflecting a fall in stock prices and the stronger yen.
