Mr Koji Arima, president and CEO of DENSO Corporation said that “DENSO’s revenue rose due to an increase in global vehicle production in spite of natural disasters.

Operating profit decreased due to transient profit in the last fiscal year, variance of periods in collecting expenses and increase in investment for future growth toward becoming a leading mobility supplier.”

Despite a rise in production volume and cost-reduction efforts, an increase in investment for future growth and the impact of transient profit in the last fiscal year led to a drop in operating profit to 53.3 billion yen (USD 469.1 million), a 49.5 percent down from the previous year.
