In the fiscal year that ended on March 31, 2015, the Japanese economy recovered slowly because of economic stimulus measures, monetary measures and other actions. However, consumer spending is still sluggish due to the higher cost of raw materials and consumer products caused by the weaker yen, the prolonged negative effects of the April 2014 consumption tax hike, and other signs of weakness. As a result, the outlook for the Japanese economy remains uncertain.

In this environment, the AOKI Group implemented various measures segment. Sales increased 2.4% year-on-year to 183,805 million yen but operating profit decreased 6.7% to 19,028 million yen. Ordinary income decreased 9.4% to 18,914 million yen and net income decreased 4.7% to 10,185 million yen.

In the fiscal year ending on March 31, 2016, the Japanese economy is expected to recover slowly as corporate earnings and personal income improve. But there will still be concerns about the outlook for consumer spending. Prices in Japan are increasing, chiefly for household necessities, and there are worries about the prolonged effects of consumption tax hike. The AOKI Group will use a variety of actions in response to diversifying consumer needs to respond to the changing times and operate with speed and efficiency. In addition, we will continue to open more stores and revitalize existing locations to increase our market share and become more profitable.
