  • Operating revenue of 265 billion JPY was up 7%, or 16.5 billion JPY, from the previous fiscal year.
    • Leasing business rose 13% (17.1 billion JPY) to 151 billion JPY due to strong business and consolidation of a Roppongi Hills Financial Corp. association (name withheld).
    • Property sales business declined 9% (7.1 billion JPY) to 70 billion JPY as property sales recoiled following a strong previous year, although sales of houses and lots performed well.
    • Facilities operation business rose 7% (1.4 billion JPY) to 20.9 billion JPY thanks to a higher occupancy rate at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo.
    • Overseas business jumped 51% (10.2 billion JPY) to 30.3 billion JPY on the strength of robust property leasing and sales of space in the Shanghai World Financial Center.
  • Operating income climbed 37% (15.4 billion JPY) to 57.4 billion JPY due to healthy earnings in all segments.
  • Ordinary income rose 17% (6.8 billion JPY) to 45.9 billion JPY, also due to favorable earnings in all segments.
  • Net income soared tenfold (126.5 billion JPY) to 141 billion JPY mainly due to consolidation of the Roppongi Hills Financial Corp. association.
