Subaru earnings report highlights

The results showed operating profit fell 48.5% to 195.53 billion yen ($1.78 billion) in the year ended in March.

For the year through March 2020, Subaru expects operating profit to rise 260 billion yen.

Operating profit reported 260 Billion Yen Versus 195.53 Billion Yen in the year just ended.

Net Profit came in at 210 Billion Yen versus 147.81 Billion Yen in previous year.

Revenue came in at 3.310 Trillion Yen versus 3.161 Trillion yen in the year just ended.

Subaru has suffered recent setbacks involving underlying costs related to production delays, after the discovery of a defective steering component stopped output.

The setbacks put production behind schedule in Japan for two weeks in early 2019.

Costs related to vehicle recalls in Japan also set the company back, after it admitted to cheating on domestic quality inspections. US sales took a hit after the scandal.
