Announcement Of Financial Results: Panasonic Reports Second-Quarter And Six-Month Results

Stocks in this article: PC


Sales decreased significantly by 29% to 698.3 billion yen from 985.3 billion yen a year ago. The sales decline owing to the SANYO-related business transfers implemented in fiscal 2012 led to the overall sales decrease. Segment profit decreased by 36% to 9.4 billion yen from 14.7 billion yen a year ago due mainly to sales decrease of Manufacturing Solutions Company.

Consolidated Financial Condition

Net cash provided by operating activities for six months ended September 30, 2012 amounted to 20.3 billion yen, an increase of 1.2 billion yen from a year ago. The amount level was almost in line with a year ago, as the increase in valuation allowances to deferred tax assets, and impairment losses of goodwill and intangible assets do not have any impact on cash flow. Net cash used in investing activities amounted to 79.9 billion yen, a decrease of 50.2 billion yen from a year ago. This was due primarily to a decrease in capital expenditures and an increase in proceeds from disposals of investments and property, plant and equipment. Net cash used in financing activities amounted to 46.4 billion yen, a decrease of 36.6 billion yen from a year ago, due mainly to repayment for bonds maturity in fiscal 2012. Taking into consideration exchange rate fluctuations, cash and cash equivalents totaled 443.9 billion yen as of September 30, 2012, down 130.5 billion yen, compared with the end of the last fiscal year.

The company's consolidated total assets as of September 30, 2012 decreased by 1,001.3 billion yen to 5,599.8 billion yen from March 31, 2012. This was due mainly to decreases in other assets and other current assets affected by the impairment losses of goodwill and intangible assets, and the increase in valuation allowances to deferred tax assets, as well as decreases in cash and cash equivalents, and investments and advances. Panasonic Corporation shareholders' equity decreased by 780.2 billion yen, compared with March 31, 2012, to 1,149.6 billion yen. This was due mainly to decrease in retained earnings according to net loss attributable to Panasonic Corporation and deterioration in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) along with appreciation of the yen and decline of the market value in investments. Adding Noncontrolling interests to Panasonic Corporation shareholders' equity, total equity decreased by 793.3 billion yen to 1,184.3 billion yen compared with March 31, 2012.
