Yamaha Motor Achieves Record First-half Earnings


— Net sales in most product groups up solidly —


TOKYO, Japan

Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:7272)(ISIN:JP3942800008) announced today that in the first half of its fiscal year ending December 31, 2017, consolidated net sales of 828.1 billion yen were up 6.4% from the previous year. The company achieved all-time highs in operating income of 82.2 billion yen (up 25.7%), ordinary income of 83.5 billion yen (up 51.1%), and net income for the period attributable to parent company shareholders of 60.8 billion yen (up 87.5%).

 

In emerging markets, motorcycle sales rose and operating income was significantly higher thanks to sales of higher priced products and cost reductions due to the advancement of platform-based products. In developed markets, motorcycles, marine, industrial machinery & robot products and electrically power-assisted bicycles contributed to increased sales and income.

 

Motorcycle net sales rose 6.6%, supported by brisk business in emerging markets, and operating income soared 86.8% due to a more competitive product mix and lower costs. Marine business net sales rose 5.5% on the strength of outboard motor sales in North America. Power products declined 4.0% but industrial machinery and robots climbed 30.4%, boosted by surface mounter unit sales. Drive units for electrically power-assisted bicycles surged in Europe.

 

For the year, Yamaha Motor forecasts net sales rising 8.5% to 1,630.0 billion yen, operating income rising 24.3% to 135.0 billion yen, and net income attributable to parent company shareholders rising 42.5% to 90.0 billion yen. All figures have been upwardly revised from initial forecasts. The full-year dividend forecast has been raised to 78 yen, up 18 yen from the previous year.
