2. Background to the difference

Consolidated revenue for the year ended December 31, 2023 was 1,469.4 billion yen, a 2.1% decrease year on year. While revenue from the Automotive Business increased driven by the weakening yen, the overall revenue declined mainly due to a decrease in revenue from the Industrial, Infrastructure, and IoT Businesses, attributable to the softening demand in markets such as PC/mobile phones and consumer electronics.

Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2023 decreased due to decline in revenue accompanied by factors such as a deterioration in product mix. Combined with increase in R&D expenses and other factors, operating profit decreased by 33.4 billion yen from the previous year. On the other hand, profit attributable to owners of parent increased by 80.5 billion yen year on year, primarily caused by reduced foreign exchange loss due to a change in the method of cash management among group companies.
