Honda's consolidated net income attributable to Honda Motor Co., Ltd. for the fiscal first quarter ended June 30, 2009 totaled JPY 7.5 billion (USD 79 million), a decrease of 95.6% from the same period in 2008.

Consolidated net sales and other operating revenue (herein referred to as "revenue") for the quarter amounted to JPY 2,002.2 billion (USD 20,854 million), a decrease of 30.2% from the same period in 2008, primarily due to decreased revenue in the automobile business and unfavorable currency translation effects. Honda estimates that if calculated at the same exchange rate as the corresponding period in 2008, revenue for the quarter would have decreased by approximately 20.7%.

Consolidated operating income for the quarter totaled JPY 25.1 billion (USD 262 million), a decrease of 88.0%, due primarily to decreased profit attributable to decreased revenue, the increase in fixed costs per unit as a result of reduced production and the unfavorable impact of currency effects caused by the appreciation of the Japanese yen, despite decreased SG&A expenses and R&D expenses and continuing cost reduction efforts.

Consolidated income before income taxes and equity in income of affiliates for the quarter totaled JPY 5.4 billion (USD 57 million), a decrease of 97.6% from the same period in 2008.
