Honda Motor Co., Ltd. Reports Consolidated Financial Results For The Fiscal First Quarter Ended June 30, 2012

TOKYO, July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Honda Motor Co., Ltd. (HMC; NYSE) today announced its consolidated financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended June 30, 2012.

First Quarter Results

Honda's consolidated net income attributable to Honda Motor Co., Ltd. for the fiscal first quarter ended June 30, 2012 totaled JPY 131.7 billion ( USD 1,661 million), an increase of 314.3% from the same period last year. Basic net income attributable to Honda Motor Co., Ltd. per common share for the quarter amounted to JPY 73.09 (USD 0.92), an increase of JPY 55.45 (USD 0.70) from JPY 17.64 for the corresponding period last year.

Consolidated net sales and other operating revenue (herein referred to as "revenue") for the quarter amounted to JPY 2,435.9 billion ( USD 30,714 million), an increase of 42.1% from the same period last year, due primarily to increased revenue in automobile business operation as the production has recovered from the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake, and increased revenue in motorcycle business operation, despite unfavorable foreign currency translation effects.

Consolidated operating income for the quarter amounted to JPY 176.0 billion ( USD 2,219 million), an increase of 679.5% from the same period last year, due primarily to an increase in sales volume and model mix, despite increased SG&A expenses and R&D expenses, and unfavorable foreign currency effects.

In automobile business operation, revenue from sales to external customers increased 60.6%, to JPY 1,890.5 billion ( USD 23,837 million), from the same period last year. Operating income totaled JPY 100.6 billion ( USD 1,269 million), an increase of JPY 176.8 billion ( USD 2,230 million) from the same period last year.
