Explanation:
MHI's consolidated net sales in the first half of the fiscal year ending March 2011 are projected to register a year-on-year increase attributable primarily to increased sales in the Machinery & Steel Structures segment as well as sales growth in the General Machinery & Special Vehicles segment, where demand appears to have bottomed out.

Year-on-year increases are also expected in first-half operating income, ordinary income and net income, with impact from the strong yen compensated mainly by the year-on-year expansion in net sales and improvement in plant construction earnings.
