Points of Interest
Nidec adjusted its sales outlook for electric-vehicle (EV) traction motors in July. The company revised its forecast for the year ending in March 2024 from 949,000 units to 545,000 units and lowered the revenue estimate from 152.5 billion yen to 78.1 billion yen. Investors will closely monitor the sales trends for EV motors.
Nidec experienced a rise in first-quarter operating profit margin, increasing from 8.3% to 10.6% YoY. This improvement was attributed to cost-cutting measures and higher product prices. Investors will pay attention to any further enhancements in profitability, considering the global challenge of inflation faced by manufacturers.
Nidec's management projects a 1.9% decline in revenue, totaling 2.200 trillion yen, and a tripled net profit of 165.00 billion yen for the fiscal year ending in March 2024. Investors will be keen on any updates or modifications that might be made to the annual guidance.
