Toyota City, Japan, February 7, 2012- Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) today announced financial results for the nine months ended December 31, 2011.

On a consolidated basis, net revenues for the nine months totaled 12,881.1 billion yen, a decrease of 10.2 percent compared to the same period last fiscal year. Operating income decreased from 422.1 billion yen to 117.1 billion yen, while income before income taxes* was 197.2 billion yen. Net income** decreased from 382.7 billion yen to 162.5 billion yen.

Commenting on the results, TMC Senior Managing Officer Takahiko Ijichi said: "Despite cost reduction from company-wide Value Analysis activities and a decrease in fixed cost and expenses, net income decreased, compared to the same period last fiscal year due to the impact of reduced sales by the effects of Great East Japan Earthquake, floods in Thailand and the continued Yen appreciation."

Operating income, excluding the impact of valuation gains/losses on interest rate swaps, decreased by 122.5 billion yen to 114.3 billion yen.

In Europe, vehicle sales totaled 580 thousand units, an increase of 4 thousand units, while operating income improved by 15.2 billion yen, to 8.5 billion yen.

Excluding valuation gains/losses, operating income decreased by 49.6 billion yen to 226.4 billion yen.  

Reflecting the above results, TMC has revised its consolidated vehicles sales for the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2012 from 7.38 million to 7.41 million units, an increase of 30 thousand units from TMC's forecasts announced in December 2011.

Commenting on the forecasts for FY2012, Ijichi said: "Even though the Yen has been further appreciating against major currencies lately, Toyota remains committed to pursuing an improvement of its earnings structure through various cost reduction activities as well as continuing the production recovery from the Japan Earthquake and floods in Thailand. Also, Toyota will continue to make its utmost effort to achieve re-investment into making even better cars by strengthening its base of business and expanding vehicles sales and earnings as a target under its Global Vision."
