CFO Message:

"MHI is proud to have achieved strong orders in all segments in the first quarter of this fiscal year," Hisato Kozawa, Member of the Board, Executive Vice President, and Chief Financial Officer of MHI commented. "Considering the mid- to long-term market outlook in the EMEA region, we began reducing the scale of operations in our European coal-fired thermal power business and booked some charges associated with these actions. In parallel, MHI is looking to increase our presence in EMEA through the Energy Transition by offering decarbonization solutions as well as core technologies including hydrogen utilization and CO2 Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS)."

Mr. Kozawa continued, "Despite securing YEN19.1 billion in net profit, the business environment remains challenging. In the first quarter, materials and logistics cost inflation and supply chain disruptions, including the lockdowns in China, continued to impact our businesses for longer than initially projected. As concerns of recession in North America and Europe mount, we will strive to improve profitability through various measures such as price optimization and further fixed cost reductions in the second half of the fiscal year."
