Quarterly Accounts Review

As of August 9, 2017

Qualitative Information on Quarterly Financial Results for the Period under Review

The Japanese economy during the three months ended June 30, 2017 generally followed a moderate recovery trend as corporate earnings and the employment and income environment continued to improve.

Meanwhile, the economic outlook remains uncertain amid increasing uncertainty due to growing concerns about the expansion of protectionist policies in the U.S., as well as the U.K.’s decision to leave the European Union and a slowdown in China’s economic growth.

In the printing industry, while the advertising market saw a continuing shift to online advertising, a trend toward contraction continued in the publications market. The operating environment was tough overall, reflecting a drop in unit prices due to intensifying competition across different business types and categories, and other factors on top of sluggish demand for paper media.

Amid this environment, Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. (the “Company”) and its group companies (collectively, the “Group”) identified Healthcare & Life Sciences, Education & Cultural Exchange, Urban Space & Mobility, and Energy & Food Resources as four business fields for growth for TOPPAN VISION 21, which sets out Toppan’s Corporate Structure and Business Fields for the 21st century. Guided by the concept of “Designing Infinite Possibilities – Discover the Value of the Future. Make it Real with Planning and Creativity,” the Group strives to expand its business by realizing total solutions through enhanced Group collaboration and combinations of technologies and knowhow. In order to promptly establish new revenue models, the Group worked to enhance competitiveness by reducing costs and strengthening technology development in existing businesses, and proactively put management resources into new businesses.

As a result, for the three months ended June 30, 2017, net sales increased by 1.4% from the same period of the previous year to ¥345.7 billion. Further, operating profit increased by 17.0% to ¥5.6 billion, ordinary profit increased by 44.5% to ¥8.5 billion, and profit attributable to owners of parent was ¥8.7 billion, a 188.3% increase.
