AOKI Holdings Announces Consolidated Financial Results for the Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2013 Business Wire YOKOHAMA, Japan -- May 16, 2013 AOKI Holdings Inc. (TOKYO:8214)(ISIN:JP3105400000) announced its consolidated financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013. In the fiscal year under review, the Japanese economy initially decelerated further due to the impact of slowing overseas economies and the yen's protracted appreciation, but consumer sentiment improved from around the end of 2012 as expectations over the government's economic policies caused the yen to depreciate and share prices to rise. In the menswear retail industry, personal consumption did not recover as employment and income conditions remained harsh, but sales of heavy and warm clothes were solid from autumn due to lower-than-average temperatures as were sales in spring to "freshers," men and women entering university or the workforce for the first time. In this environment, the AOKI Group implemented various measures in each business segment to respond to the changing environment and focused on evolving its business formats in pursuit of further growth. As a result of these initiatives, business performance in the fiscal year under review as follows: Sales 160,589 million yen (up 9.5% year-on-year) Operating profit 17,078 million yen (up 24.1% year-on-year) Ordinary income 17,590 million yen (up 20.6% year-on-year) Net income 9,832 million yen (up 38.7% year-on-year) Profits rose sharply to new record highs at each level following the previous fiscal year. Consolidated Financial Results for the Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2013, summarized below.
