Financial Summary for 1H/FY2010

Consolidated Financial Results

  • Against the uncertainty that remains in the Japanese economy, the Dentsu Group pursued aggressive marketing activities while capitalizing on opportunities such as the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ and strengthening our operational framework to deliver innovative solution services. All these have translated into an increase in gross profit.
  • In summary, the Group posted consolidated net sales (billings) of 868.4 billion yen (+10.5% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year), gross profit of 145.8 billion yen (+8.1%) and a gross profit margin of 16.8%, down 0.4 percentage point compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year.
  • While gross profit expanded, the Group's selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) of 128.3 billion yen remained at almost the same level (+0.2% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year). We were thus able to post an increase in operating income.
  • The Group posted operating income of 17.5 billion yen (+157.3% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year) and ordinary income of 16.6 billion yen (+58.8% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year).
  • As extraordinary loss of 15.4 billion yen was posted, the Group's net income came to 2.8 billion yen (-59.9% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year).
