Overview for the 1Q of FY 3/2022 (From April 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021)
In the three months ended June 30, 2021, the Japanese economy exhibited a gentle recovery against the backdrop of a recovery in exports to Europe, the United States, and China even in the midst of a global semiconductor shortage and a spike in raw materials prices and despite the sluggishness of domestic consumption as a result of COVID-19. The U.S. economy is improving, driven by spending on services with the resumption of economic activity in conjunction with progress on COVID-19 vaccination among the public. In Europe, consumption is recovering in response to easing of restrictions in conjunction with rapid progress on vaccination and infections declining after reaching a peak. In addition, exports are on the rise driven by the manufacturing industry against the backdrop of a global economic recovery. The Chinese economy continues to expand as a result of a gentle recovery in internal demand owing to the effects of economic measures and a bounce-back from the stagnation caused by COVID-19 as well as a global recovery in exports. In Southeast Asia, the future remains uncertain due to the impact of restrictions on economic activities to curb infections of COVID-19 and a shortage of vaccines.
Working against this backdrop, the MinebeaMitsumi Group concentrated on cutting costs, creating high-value-added products, developing new technologies, and enhancing its marketing approach to boost profitability further.
As a result, net sales came to 248,305 million yen, up 60,842 million yen (32.5%) year on year.
