Earnings Forecast

<FY2022 Forecast> ※February 14, 2022

During the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022, the momentum of the global economic recovery is expected to slow down due to concerns about the resurgence of the pandemic and continuing disruptions in supply chains, coupled with the impact of prolonged hyperinflation due to the rise in the price of crude oil and other factors.
The Nippon Paint Group is implementing a three-year New Medium-Term Plan (FY2021-2023), which started in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021. In accordance with this plan, we will further strengthen the foundation for growth in our existing businesses and use M&A to add highly skilled people and powerful brands. These actions are aimed at generating additional earnings and achieving sustained growth. These actions include initiatives for more growth in the decorative paints business, including in Asia and Oceania, and for strengthening ETICS, adhesives and other paint related business. At Cromology Holding SAS (Cromology), which we acquired on January 20, 2022, we plan to accelerate its growth by sharing the Nippon Paint Group’s expertise and knowhow. We will continue activities to increase our market share in every operating region and business field by driving the autonomous management of our group companies in Japan and other countries.
Based on this outlook, we forecast consolidated revenue of ¥1,200,000 million, consolidated operating profit of ¥115,000 million, profit before tax of ¥113,000 million and profit attributable to owners of the parent of ¥81,000 million.
Based on this earnings forecast, we plan to pay a dividends of ¥11 per share for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022.
