Published: May. 13, 2022 at 5:18 AM EDT

TOKYO, May 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Despite certain unfavorable factors such as the resurgence of COVID-19, a decrease in automobile unit sales due to the semiconductor supply shortage and an increase in the cost of raw materials, consolidated operating profit for the fiscal year amounted to 871.2 billion yen, a year-on-year increase by 211.0 billion yen, due primarily to success in reducing costs and controlling incentives, and favorable currency effects.


  • Consolidated profit for the year attributable to owners of the parent amounted to 707.0 billion yen, a year-on-year increase of 49.6 billion yen.


  • For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023 (FY23), despite the projected increase of sales volume and favorable currency effects, Honda is expecting that the external business environment will remain challenging including a further increase in cost. Honda will continue its comprehensive efforts to improve profitability and plans to achieve consolidated operating profit of 810 billion yen for the fiscal year.


  • The forecast for profit for the fiscal year (FY23) attributable to owners of the parent is 710 billion yen, a year-on-year increase by 2.9 billion yen, due partly to an increase in the share of profit from investments accounted for using the equity method.


  • The year-end dividend will be 65 yen per share; total dividends to be paid for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022 (FY22) will be 120 yen per share, an increase by 10 yen per share compared to the previously announced forecast.


  • The forecast for total dividends to be paid for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023 (FY23) is 120 yen per share, equivalent to FY22.
