"Revenue decreased as vehicle sales declined due to the epidemic of COVID-19 and operating loss is caused by production volume decrease. For our 2021 fiscal year, ending March 31, 2021, we forecast sales of 4.54 trillion yen and operating income of 100 billion yen." said Yasushi Matsui, senior executive officer of DENSO Corporation.

Revenue declined significantly in all areas due to the impact of COVID-19.

In Japan, revenue decreased to 528.3 billion yen (US$4.9 billion) (Down 33.7% from the same quarter in the previous year). and an operating loss was 90.8 billion yen (US$842.4 million) (Operating income of 34 billion yen in the same quarter of the previous year).

In North America, revenue decreased to 121.8 billion yen (US$1.1 billion) (Down 61.4% from the same quarter in the previous year) and operating loss was 26.3 billion yen (US$244.3 million) (Operating income of 11.6 billion yen in the same quarter of the previous year).
