November 15, 2023
First-half operating profit more than doubles to 336.7 billion yen Forecast full-year operating profit raised to 620 billion yen

YOKOHAMA, Japan (Nov. 9, 2023) – Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced financial results for the six-months ended September 30, 2023, and revised upward its full-year revenue and profit outlook for fiscal 2023.

Fiscal year 2023 first-half financial highlights

Consolidated net revenue increased by 1.40 trillion yen to 6.06 trillion yen, with consolidated operating profit rising 180.1 billion yen to 336.7 billion yen, representing an operating profit margin of 5.6%. Net income1 was 296.2 billion yen.

Although sales volume in China declined due to intensifying competition and the accelerated transition to new energy vehicles led by local brands, sales in other regions increased significantly year on year. The increased revenues and operating profit were driven primarily by an improved operational performance and higher year-on-year consolidated unit sales.
