The Third Quarter Summary of Financial Results for the Fiscal Year Ending March 2022
Consolidated operating revenue for the nine months ended December 31, 2021, decreased to 196,922 million yen (down 2.0% year-on-year). This is attributable to: the decreases in accounts receivable - operating loans and guaranteed receivables due to the spread of COVID-19 infection which led to decreases in interest on operating loans and revenue from credit guarantee. Operating expenses, on the other hand, increased to 136,959 million yen (up 15.0% year-on-year), due to an increase in allowance for doubtful accounts and additions made to provision for loss on interest repayment, in addition to an increase in advertising expenses. The increase in advertising expenses was due to the restoration of advertising related to attracting new customers, which was suppressed by the COVID-19 infection during the nine months ended December 31, 2020, to the level before the COVID-19 infection. The increase in the allowance for doubtful accounts was due to the decrease in the allowance for doubtful accounts with the decrease in operating loans, etc. during the nine months ended December 31, 2020. The provision for loss on interest repayment was recorded up to the required amount as the number of interest repayment claims has exceeded the estimate. As a result, operating profit decreased to 59,963 million yen (down 26.8% year-on-year) and ordinary profit decreased to 60,519 million yen (down 27.0% year-on-year). Profit attributable to owners of parent decreased to 46,584 million yen (down 29.6% year-on-year).
