KDDI’s Third Quarter Slightly Disappointing; We Reduce Our FVE to JPY 4,100

Analyst Note

| Dan Baker |

Narrow-moat KDDI’s third-quarter fiscal 2022 result (quarter-ending December 2022) was slightly below our expectations with operating profit down 5.5% and net profit down 7.7%. Costs associated with the two-day network outage in July, the impact of fuel price hikes, and losses from the energy business related to fuel price volatility, cost the company JPY 31.2 billion in the first nine months of the fiscal year and excluding these, first nine-month operating profit would have been flat. However, KDDI’s first-quarter results were boosted by a temporal accounting effect in its financial business relating to home mortgages which added around JPY 18 billion to operating profit, so underlying first nine-month operating profit was down around 2% on our estimate.
