Feb '08
Toyota Industries Corporation announces Fiscal 2008 third-quarter financial results. During the third quarter of fiscal 2008 (the nine months from April 1 to December 31, 2007), total consolidated net sales of Toyota Industries amounted to 1,477.3 billion yen, an increase of 85.3 billion yen, or 6%, over the same period of the previous fiscal year. The following is a review of operations for the major business segments.

Net sales of the Automobile Segment totaled 715.0 billion yen, an increase of 52.0 billion yen, or 8%, over the same period. Within this segment, net sales of the Vehicle Business amounted to 365.6 billion yen, an increase of 19.0 billion yen, or 5%, due to a Mark X ZiO production commenced in September 2007, offsetting a decrease in sales of the Vitz (Yaris overseas) and RAV4.

Net sales of the Engine Business totaled 131.3 billion yen, an increase of 8.4 billion yen, or 7%, attributable largely to an increase in sales of the KD diesel engine for Toyota Motor Corporation's IMV Series. Net sales of the Car Air-Conditioning Compressor Business totaled 191.3 billion yen, an increase of 21.3 billion yen, or 13%, as a result of solid sales overseas, notably in Europe.

Net sales of the Materials Handling Equipment Segment totaled 577.3 billion yen, a decrease of 3.4 billion yen, or 1%. However, the third quarter of the previous fiscal year included twelve-month results of certain subsidiaries following a change in their fiscal year-end. Excluding its effects, net sales increased 60.3 billion yen, or 12%. With regards to lift trucks, both the TOYOTA and BT brands posted increases in total unit sales backed by the European and other markets, despite a decrease in sales in the United States.
