  • Operating revenue of 255.7 billion JPY was down 4% as property sales recoiled from the previous year.
  • Operating income of 62.3 billion JPY was up 9% due to strong property leasing and sales.
  • Ordinary income rose 24% to 57.1 billion JPY, also due to strong property leasing and sales.
  • Net income of current fiscal year of 50.3 billion JPY was down 64% because of the balance brought forward.  Excluding this effect, real net income increased.
Below are the pertinent factors that influenced performance in various business segments.
  • Leasing business declined 4% to 145.2 billion JPY due to decreased construction revenue as the Toranomon Hills project wound down, though leasing property income increased.
  • Property sales of 58.7 billion JPY fell 16% following a recoil from the previous year, although Toranomon Hills residence leasing showed strong growth.
  • Facilities operation business jumped 21% to 25.4 billion JPY due to the opening of Andaz Tokyo.
  • Overseas business rose 3% to 31.2 billion JPY due to strong growth in leasing and favarable changes in currency rates, although property sales produced no profit.

 

Consolidated forecasts for fiscal year ending March 2016 are as follows:

  • Operating revenue is forecast to remain steady, rising 1% to 257 billion JPY.
  • Operating income is expected to rise 9% to 6.8 billion yen due to increased leasing revenue.
  • Ordinary income is envisioned rising slightly by 1% to 58 billion JPY.
  • Net income, a profit attributable to owners of parent, is forecast to fall 25% to 38 billion JPY due to the recoil effect caused by lowering of Japan’s corporate tax rate.

Consolidated results are based on information available on the day of the announcement, as analyzed by Mori Building. Forecasts are subject to inherent risks and uncertainty, so actual results may differ due to changes in various factors.
