Despite some profit-reducing factors such as an increase in expenses necessary for the future growth of the company including R&D expenses and expenses related to the startup of new production plants and changes in revenue and model mix in Japan and North America, consolidated operating income for the fiscal first quarter (April 1, 2013 through June 30, 2013) amounted to 184.9 billion yen, an increase of 5.1% compared to the same period last year, due primarily to increased motorcycle sales in Asia, increased automobile sales in all regions except for Japan, reduced costs and favorable currency effects due to the depreciation of the Japanese yen. Previously announced forecasts for consolidated financial results for the current fiscal year ending March 31, 2014 will remain unchanged based on the results for this fiscal first quarter. The quarterly dividend for the fiscal first quarter will be 20 yen per share, 1 yen increase compared to the quarterly dividend for the same period last year.
