In a recent report from Nintendo (NTDOY), full-year (FY23) financial forecast adjustments were shared largely based around the depreciation of the yen. Previously, the assumption was 115 to 1 U.S. dollar and 125 yen to 1 euro, but has since been updated to 135 yen to dollar and 135 yen to euro. It seems Nintendo is being conservative here as currently the dollar to yen exchange rate sits at 145 yen to 1 dollar.
- Revenue projection increased by 3.1%
- Profit per share projection increased 18.45%
- Increased the interim dividend by 1.6% to 630/yen
- Projects a 22% decrease in the Year-end dividend from FY22
Elsewhere, Nintendo is enjoying solid sales growth with its dedicated video game business growing by 5.7 percent year-on-year to 631.4 billion yen. Even though hardware unit sales declined in volume “due in part to the semiconductor shortage” Nintendo points out that overall hardware sales increased “mainly due to the depreciation of the yen.”
