First Quarter Results

Honda's consolidated profit for the period attributable to owners of the parent for the fiscal first quarter ended June 30, 2016 totaled JPY 174.6 billion (USD 1,698 million), a decrease of 6.1% from the same period last year, due primarily to an increase in Income tax expense.

Consolidated sales revenue for the quarter amounted to JPY 3,471.7 billion (USD 33,736 million), a decrease of 6.3% from the same period last year, due primarily to unfavorable foreign currency translation effects, despite increased consolidated unit sales in automobile and motorcycle business operations.
