Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Sees YoY Increases in Order Intake, Revenue, and Net Profit in Stable First Half and Revises Full-Year Forecast
･ Order intake, revenue, business profit, and net profit all increased YoY. Orders growth driven by seven large-frame Gas Turbine Combined Cycle units in Energy Systems and continued strong demand for Metals Machinery including electric arc furnaces.
･ Downward pressure on business profit from escalating cost inflation, supply chain disruptions, and one-time charges offset by increased topline, foreign exchange effects, gains on asset sales, and fixed cost reductions.
･ Revised full-year forecast, increasing order intake and revenue while maintaining previous profit guidance to reflect businesses’ latest results and foreign exchange conditions.
Tokyo – Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI, TSE Code: 7011) announced that order intake rose 31.6% year-over-year to ¥2,018.4 billion in the half ended September 30, 2022. Revenue rose 12.7% to ¥1,875.2 billion year-over-year, resulting in business profit (Note1) of ¥54.8 billion, a 109.2% increase from the previous fiscal year, which represents a profit margin of 2.9%. Net profit was ¥54.1 billion, an increase of 348.1% year-over-year, with a profit margin of 2.9%. EBITDA was ¥122.2 billion, a 34.4% increase from FY2021, with a profit margin of 6.5%, up 1.0 percentage point year-over-year.

“MHI showed solid results year-on-year in order intake, revenue, and net profit during the first half of this fiscal year,” Seiji Izumisawa, President and CEO of MHI commented. “We saw an increase in orders in many of our major businesses, specifically GTCC, Metals Machinery, Logistics Systems, and HVAC.”
Izumisawa continued, “Due to the latest progress in each business and the recent rapid depreciation of the yen, we have updated our full-year earnings forecast. This will increase orders and sales while maintaining our initial profit forecast. In line with the assumptions of our initial earnings forecasts, prices are still rising globally and geopolitical tensions continue. In addition, the business environment surrounding the company is becoming increasingly uncertain in the short term, with some regions believed to have already entered a recession and others expected to do so in the near future. We will continue responding appropriately and in a timely manner to issues as they arise and the changing situation in each country and region.
“While uncertainty in the business environment recently appears to be increasing, we are very proud of some important achievements in the Energy Transition – one of the main focuses of MHI’s growth strategy – in the first half of this fiscal year. Customers in carbon-intensive industries, such as power generation and steelmaking, are more eager than ever to decarbonize their businesses. This is evidenced by increasing orders and inquiries for hydrogen-ready gas turbines and electric arc furnaces. Going forward, we will continue to expand our growth areas while optimizing operations as we work to achieve the targets of our 2021 Medium-Term Business Plan.”
