Quarterly Highlights (Fiscal Year Ending December 2022, 3Q)

Sales results varied by region during the period under review. Unforgiving conditions persisted for the China Business, as the COVID-19 pandemic continued its spread from the start of the fiscal year and the government imposed a zero-COVID policy, including lockdowns in Shanghai and elsewhere in 2Q, in response. On the other hand, sales were brisk in the Singapore Business and Lansinoh Business, and depreciation in the Japanese yen gave a boost to revenue figures. Net sales appreciated slightly to ¥70,707 million (up 1.8% YOY). In earnings, globally high raw-material prices and shipping expenses caused a deterioration in cost rates while the reopening of economic activity in various countries prompted concerted use of selling, general and administrative expenses. Operating income dropped to ¥9,103 million (down 12.8% YOY), ordinary income fell to ¥10,774 million (down 8.5% YOY) and net income attributable to owners of parent slipped to ¥6,948 million (down 3.3% YOY).
