For the first nine months ended May 31, 2016, parent company of Uniqlo brand, Fast Retailing Group recorded an increase in sales but a fall in profit.

According to Fast Retailing, consolidated sales totaled ¥1.4346 trillion, up 6.4 per cent year on year, while consolidated operating profit reached ¥145.8 billion, down a steep 23.0 per cent.

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.

“As a result, consolidated profit before income tax declined by a considerable 41.9 per cent year-on-year over the same period,” the retailer averred.

Consolidated operating profit too expanded 18.6 per cent over the prior fiscal's same quarter, due to a recovery in performance at both, Uniqlo Japan and Uniqlo International. (AR)
