Consolidated profit before income tax stood at ¥122.0 billion, down a massive 41.9 per cent, from a fiscal ago period and profit attributable to owners of the parent reached ¥71.0 billion, a drop of 46.4 per cent.

Among its various brands, Global Brands reported a rise in both revenue and profit, while both Uniqlo Japan and Uniqlo International recorded an increase in sales but a decline in profit.

“Furthermore, due to the yen appreciating at the end of May than at the beginning of the period, foreign exchange losses in other expenses were down ¥14.8 billion year on year to ¥6.7 billion,” the company said.

“While the yen equivalent of long-term assets in foreign currencies etc. reduced, so foreign exchange losses in finance costs were down ¥43.4 billion year on year to ¥23.4 billion,” Fast Retailing explained.
