Tokyo, Feb 5, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) -  Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) today

2012. 
On a consolidated basis, net revenues for the period totaled 16.2 trillion
yen, an increase of 26.0 percent compared to the same period last fiscal year.
Operating income increased from 117.1 billion yen to 818.5 billion yen, an

billion yen.  Net income(2) increased from 162.5 billion yen to 648.1 billion
yen. 
Major factors contributing to the increase in operating income include the
positive effects from marketing activities generating 660.0 billion yen and
cost reduction efforts saving 320.0 billion yen. 
Consolidated vehicle sales for the nine months totaled 6.629 million units, an
increase of 1.634 million units compared to the same period last year. 
Commenting on the results, TMC Senior Managing Officer Takahiko Ijichi said:
"Our consolidated operating income for the period April through December
2012, 818.5 billion yen, reflects our increased vehicle sales and the progress
we are making with our profit improvement activities - in spite of a currency
exchange rate around the same level as last year.  We also managed to secure an
unconsolidated operating income of 21.5 billion yen for the same period." 
In Japan, vehicle sales totaled 1.668 million units, an increase of 310,564
units compared to the same period last fiscal year.  Operating income from
Japanese operations increased by 572.9 billion yen to 266.4 billion yen. 
In North America, vehicle sales totaled 1.865 million units, an increase of
596,587 units compared to the same period last fiscal year.  Operating income
increased by 13.6 billion yen to 165.4 billion yen, including 31.3 billion yen
of valuation gains/losses on interest rate swaps.  Operating income, excluding
the impact of valuation gains/losses on interest rate swaps, increased by 19.7
billion yen to 134.1 billion yen. 
In Europe, vehicle sales totaled 603 thousand units, an increase of 23,365
units compared to the same period last fiscal year, while operating income
increased by 12.7 billion yen to 21.3 billion yen. 
In Asia, vehicle sales totaled 1.267 million units, an increase of 373,635
units compared to the same period last fiscal year, while operating income
increased by 115.2 billion yen to 286.3 billion yen. 
In Central and South America, Oceania and Africa, vehicle sales totaled 1.226
million units, an increase of 329,698 units compared to the same period last
fiscal year, while operating income decreased by 4.9 billion yen to 91.0
billion yen. 
In the financial services segment, operating income decreased by 10.9 billion
yen to 243.5 billion yen compared to the same period last year, including 27.7
billion yen of valuation gains/losses on interest rate swaps.  Excluding
valuation gains/losses, operating income decreased by 10.5 billion yen to 215.8
billion yen.  This was mainly due to a lower reversal of provisions for loan
and residual losses in comparison to the same period last year. 
TMC also today revises its consolidated vehicles sales forecast for fiscal
year 2013 from 8.750 million units to 8.850 million units, an increase of
100,000 units from the previous forecast announced in November 2012, due to the
increased overseas vehicle sales, mostly in North America. 
TMC also upwardly revises its consolidated financial forecasts for fiscal year
2013 to consolidated net revenue of 21.8 trillion yen, operating income of 1.15
trillion yen, income before income taxes of 1.29 trillion yen and net income of
860.0 billion yen, with the revision of an exchange rate of 81 yen to the U.S.
dollar and 104 yen to the euro. 
Commenting on the forecasts for fiscal year 2013, Ijichi said: "Given
increased overseas vehicle sales mostly in North America, progress in our
companywide profit improvement activities and the slight weakening of the yen,
we have revised upwardly our consolidated forecast for the current fiscal year
to 1.15 trillion yen and also forecast a full-year profit on an unconsolidated
basis, our first in five years.  We believe that our efforts have been bearing
fruit and that we are finally on the road to sustainable growth.  We will
continue our efforts to build ever-better cars and to move forward in a
steadfast manner."
