Posted on May 15, 2018

Were Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. Ltd.'s first-quarter financial results optimistic or pessimistic? It all depends on your perspective.

But net income was up 14.4%, from 5.9 billion yen to 6.7 billion yen. The company's income-to-sales ratio was a healthy 7.1%.

Based on the exchange rate on March 31, 2018, Toyo recorded net income of $63.3 million on net sales of $882 million. First-quarter operating income was nearly $100 million.

Toyo's tire business unit posted net sales of more than 80.7 billion yen, a 2.5% increase over the same period in fiscal 2017, and operating income of 11.5 billion yen, a decrease of 2.4%. Tire sales accounted for 86% of the company's total sales in the first quarter.
