Reason for revisions:
On April 30, 2020, the company announced its business outlook as consolidated ordinary loss for the 1st
quarter of fiscal 2020 of (7,000) million yen and its consolidated ordinary loss for the full fiscal year of (10,000)
million yen to (40,000) million yen range. It then made an upward revision on its consolidated ordinary
profit/loss for the full fiscal year to 0 yen on 17 June, 2020.
Ordinary profit for the 1st quarter of fiscal 2020 was higher than announced on April 30, mainly due to the
effort in Containership business to cut cost and minimize dipping of utilization rates in Asia-North America and
Asia-Europe services to mitigate the impact of sluggish cargo movement by COVID-19 pandemic, also
supported by cheaper bunker price, in addition to longer-than-expected bullish market of crude oil carrier in
With regard to the full-year consolidated profit, forecast announced on June 17, 2020 is maintained because
demand for ocean transport from the 2nd quarter onward remain uncertain in Car Carrier business and
Containership business, operated by Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd., an equity-method affiliate, and the
speed of recovery in cargo movements is expected to further slow due to the lack of prospects when the
COVID-19 pandemic will be fully contained.
