The economy in fiscal 2022 generally continued to see recovery in the corporate sector in the U.S., Europe and Japan. The household sector continued to recover in the U.S. and Europe, while in Japan there was the downward pressure stemming from the novel coronavirus diseases (COVID-19), despite recovery owing to normalization of economic activities. China continued to see recovery in export and manufacturing, while the pace of recovery in the household sector slowed down. There was also the impact of the rise in material prices and logistics costs as well as a prolonged components shortage.

In this environment, the Mitsubishi Electric Group has been working even harder than before to uplift profitability by strengthening its business portfolio strategy towards sustainable growth, while continuously implementing initiatives to strengthen its competitiveness and business structure.

Revenue

Revenue increased by 285.3 billion yen compared to the previous fiscal year to 4,476.7 billion yen due primarily to increased revenue in Industrial Automation Systems, Home Appliances and Electronic Device segments, despite decreased revenue in Energy and Electric Systems and Information and Communication Systems segments. Industrial Automation Systems segment saw an increase in the factory automation systems business due mainly to an increase in demand for capital expenditures relating to digital equipment and decarbonization worldwide. The automotive equipment business also increased due to the expansion of the electric vehicle market. Home Appliances segment increased due mainly to an increase in air conditioners particularly in Europe and North America, despite a decrease in air conditioners in Japan due primarily to a semiconductor shortage. Electronic Devices segment increased due primarily to recovery in demand for power modules.

Operating profit

Operating profit increased by 21.8 billion yen compared to the previous fiscal year to 252.0 billion yen due mainly to increased operating profit in Industrial Automation Systems and Electronic Devices segments, despite decreased operating profit in Energy and Electric Systems and Home Appliances segments. Operating profit ratio improved by 0.1 points compared to the previous fiscal year to 5.6% due mainly to increased revenue.

The cost ratio improved by 0.2 points compared to the previous fiscal year due primarily to higher operating ratio owing to increased revenue in Industrial Automation Systems segment and the yen depreciating against other currencies, despite the rise in material prices. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 60.0 billion yen compared to the previous fiscal year, but selling, general and administrative expenses to revenue ratio improved by 0.2 points. Other profit (loss) decreased by 8.2 billion yen compared to the previous fiscal year due mainly to decreased profit from sales of land, and other profit (loss) to revenue ratio deteriorated by 0.3 points compared to the previous fiscal year.

Profit before income taxes

Profit before income taxes increased by 20.9 billion yen compared to the previous fiscal year to 279.6 billion yen due primarily to an increase in operating profit. Profit before income taxes to revenue ratio was 6.2%.

Net profit attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation stockholders

Net profit attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation stockholders increased by 10.3 billion yen compared to the previous fiscal year to 203.4 billion yen due mainly to increased profit before income taxes. Net profit attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation stockholders to revenue ratio was 4.5%.

ROE deteriorated by 0.4% compared to the previous fiscal year to 7.1%.

Forecast for Fiscal 2023

The global economy in fiscal 2023 is expected to continue recovering but growth is anticipated to slow down due to the expansion of COVID-19 variants and supply constraints causing rising inflation in various countries and regions, as well as a slowdown in the U.S. and China. There is also an increase in uncertainty about recent geopolitical risks and the rise in material prices, which might exert more downward pressure on the global economy.

Under these circumstances, the Mitsubishi Electric Group aims to raise profitability by strengthening its business portfolio strategy and promoting global operations particularly of its Key Growth Businesses, while creating new business and expanding solution business by exploring open innovations to respond to the changing social structure and customer values. The Group also aims to build a stable revenue base that tolerates change in order to minimize the impact of the rise in material prices and logistics costs as well as components shortages.

Based on a certain premise, Mitsubishi Electric has taken into consideration the impact of improper testing, including costs for additional inspections and strengthening the quality control system. Depending on the progress of future discussions with customers and investigations, the Group may incur losses exceeding this premise or relating to the discovery of any other improper quality-related conduct. If any potential impact comes to light, it will be disclosed promptly. For more information regarding improper testing, please see “Relevant documents” of “Restoring trust: Our roadmap for reform.”
