Segment-by-segment performance for the year ended March 31, 2012
This year began with a considerable decline in railway use after the Great East Japan Earthquake. Nevertheless, the JR Central group prioritizes safe and reliable transportation, which is the foundation of the railway business, while aiming to further develop our service. We also continue to engage in efforts to improve the competency of our employees, to enhance facilities, and to pursue efficiency and Cost Reduction in an effort to strengthen earnings capabilities. As a result, total passenger kilometers increased YoY by 1.0% to 53.255 billion passenger kilometers. Also, operating revenues increased 0.3% YoY to 1.5083 trillion yen, ordinary income increased by 15.4% YoY to 263.8 billion yen, and net income decreased by 0.8% YoY to 132.7 billion yen due to an increase in adjustments for corporate and other taxes resulting from a reduction in deferred tax assets following a decrease in the corporate tax rate.
We were able to achieve a decrease in long-term debt and payables on a consolidated basis by 178.5 billion yen which resulted in a long-term liability balance of 2.8667 trillion yen as of the end of FY2012.3.
In addition, despite the impact from the Great East Japan Earthquake, there was a steady resumption in passenger volume from the second quarter on, which we took into consideration when deciding to increase the year-end dividend by 500 yen to 5,000 yen. As a result, the annual dividends for the year were 9,500 yen per share.
This works out as follows when looking at business performance by segment.
