Under such circumstances, the Group has accumulated operating assets, and although sales have decreased, profits have steadily increased through business development that emphasizes profitability.As a result, consolidated results for the first half of the year were ¥ 1,044.8 billion in operating assets (up ¥ 5.3 billion from the end of the previous fiscal year) *1. Due to the decrease in installment sales and the impact of securitization of lease receivables in the previous fiscal year, net sales were 153.7 billion yen (down 11.4% year-on-year). On the other hand, in terms of profits, gross profit was 20.2 billion yen (up 7.4% year-on-year), operating income was 11.5 billion yen (up 29.4% year-on-year), and ordinary income was 11.6 billion yen (up 32.7% year-on-year). Net income attributable to owners of the parent was 7.9 billion yen (up 31.2% year-on-year), maintaining an upward trend.
For 45 years since its establishment, the Group has created value mainly through the leasing and finance business.In order to continue this value creation and connect it to the future, we will work to realize a sustainable sound material-cycle society by circulating profits earned through all businesses, working with business partners, and realizing employee happiness.
*1 The balance of operating assets includes the amount of securitization of lease receivables.
