SoftBank Corp. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended September 30, 2014; Revises Consolidated Earnings Guidance for the Year Ending March 31, 2015; Declares Dividend for the Second Quarter Ended September 30, 2014; Provides Dividend Guidance for the Year Ending March 31, 2015

SoftBank Corp. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net income attributable to owners of the parent of JPY 483,136 million or JPY 404.75 per diluted share compared to JPY 165,790 million or JPY 138.9 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Net sales were JPY 2,112,148 million compared to JPY 1,717,543 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Operating income was JPY 259,026 million against JPY 337,050 million a year ago. Income before income tax was JPY 796,310 million against JPY 268,256 million a year ago. Capital expenditure (acceptance basis) was JPY 307,747 million against JPY 352,320 million last year. EBITDA was JPY 530,509 million against JPY 483,827 million last year. For the six months, the company's net sales were JPY 4,104,364 million against JPY 2,598,612 million a year ago. Operating income was JPY 596,658 million against JPY 737,171 million a year ago. Income before income tax was JPY 995,781 million against JPY 628,368 million a year ago. Net income attributable to owners of the parent was JPY 560,710 million against JPY 410,167 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were JPY 471.25 against JPY 343.70 a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was JPY 682,348 million against JPY 451,229 million a year ago. Purchase of property, plant and equipment, and intangible assets was JPY 633,017 million against JPY 583,633 million a year ago. The main reason for the increase in Net Sales were that in the same period of the previous fiscal year Sprint's results were reflected only for the period from July 11 to September 30, 2013, while its results are reflected for the entire interim period, causing net sales in the Sprint segment to increase by JPY 1,022,495 million year on year. EBITDA was JPY 1,122,567 million against JPY 838,099 million last year. On consolidated basis, the company projects net sales of JPY 8 trillion and operating income of JPY 900 billion for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015. The operating income forecast has been downwardly revised by JPY 100 billion from the original forecast disclosed in the consolidated financial report for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014. This reflects a downward revision of the outlook for the Sprint segment. The forecasted operating income of JPY 900 billion for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015 does not include any temporary gains. The company expects EBITDA of approximately JPY 2 trillion. SoftBank Corp. lowered its profit forecast for the 12-month period ending in March by 10% or nearly $1 billion. The company lowered its operating profit estimate for the year from $8.8 billion to $7.9 billion, a roughly $881 million drop. The company declared dividend of JPY 20 per share for the second quarter ended September 30, 2014 against JPY 20.00 per share last year. For the year ending March 31, 2015, the company expects fourth quarter dividend of JPY 20 per share against JPY 20.00 per share last year. Total dividend is expected to be JPY 40.00 per share against JPY 40.00 per share last year.
