The business environment surrounding Japan Display Inc. ("JDI") remained difficult in FY 2019 due to sluggish growth in the smartphone market, increased adoption of OLED displays by customers and intensified competition from display manufacturers in China. In addition, the novel coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic caused disruptions in the global supply chain and a rapid drop in consumer spending during the fourth-quarter accounting period. JDI's manufacturing volume suffered a decline due to a temporary suspension of production and lower capacity utilization at overseas back-end manufacturing facilities, including its manufacturing subsidiaries and EMS companies.

In response to this situation, JDI implemented structural reforms that included a significant reduction of its Japan workforce by more than 30%, a suspension of operations at the Hakusan Plant (Hakusan City, Ishikawa Prefecture), closure of the Mobara Plant back-end manufacturing line (V2) and a write-down of smartphone display production equipment (mainly business assets at the Hakusan Plant), in order to reduce fixed costs in the first half of the fiscal year. The effects of these structural reform began to be fully realized in the second half of the FY 2019, resulting in the reduction of fixed costs by approximately JPY 30 billion for the full year. It is expected that fixed costs will be additionally reduced by about JPY 20 billion in FY 2020. In December 2019, JDI started mass production shipments of its first OLED displays. Although the contribution of these displays to sales in FY 2019 was limited, a contribution to an expansion of the business portfolio from FY 2020 can be expected. Under the impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic, JDI made attempts to restart production at its overseas manufacturing facilities as quickly as possible and regain capacity utilization. However, the recovery of capacity utilization at its back-end manufacturing subsidiary in the Philippines, a country that imposed a prolonged quarantine on urban areas, was delayed, and this in particular had a major impact on display module production in the non-mobile product category.

As a result, JDI's net sales for FY 2019 decreased by 20.8% year-on-year (YoY) to JPY 504,022 million. Despite the reduction in fixed costs due to the structural reforms described above, an operating loss of JPY 38,536 million was recorded owing to the decrease in sales (in the previous fiscal year a JPY 27,230 million loss was recorded). In addition, the company recorded an share of loss of entities accounted for using equity method of JPY10,007 million as a non-operating loss in relation to JOLED Inc., a former equity-method affiliate, leading to an ordinary loss of JPY 57,758

million (a loss of JPY 40,367 million in the previous year). A net loss attributable to owners of the parent of JPY 101,417 million was recorded (a loss of JPY 106,585 million in the previous year) after accounting for an extraordinary loss of JPY 67,178 million in business restructuring expenses that included an impairment loss on fixed assets mainly in connection with the Hakusan Plant and early retirement benefits, and also a gain on the sale of investment securities of JPY 30,594 million from the transfer all shares held in JOLED Inc.

Below is an overview of sales in each of JDI's application categories in FY 2019.

Mobile Device Category

The Mobile Device Category includes displays for smartphones, tablets and other devices. Sales in FY 2019 in this category were JPY350,802 million (down 24.9% YoY) and accounted for 69.6% of company net sales.

As competition intensified due to sluggish growth in the smartphone market, the increased adoption of OLED displays by customers and increased production by competing manufacturers in China, JDI withdrew from unprofitable products and suspended operations at the Hakusan Plant. In addition, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic led to restrictions on overseas back-end manufacturing and reduced demand from customers, leading to sales in the fourth quarter falling by 37.8% YoY to JPY79,319 million.

Automotive Category

This category contains sales of automotive displays such as cluster and head-up displays. FY 2019 sales in this category were JPY103,562 million (down 7.8% YoY), accounting for 20.5% of company net sales.

While demand for auto displays was stagnant under the impact of sluggish automobile sales in major regions due to China's economic slowdown and trade friction between the United States and China, back-end manufacturing was delayed partly due to the Covid-19 pandemic interrupting the supply of parts. For the fourth quarter, sales fell 17.0% YoY to JPY23,946 million.

Non-Mobile Category

This category includes displays for digital still cameras, wearable devices and other consumer electronics, industrial devices such as medical equipment monitors and income from patents. FY 2019 sales in this category were JPY49,656 million (down 13.6% YoY), accounting for 9.9% of net sales.

Sales of ultra-high-definition VR displays increased and sales of displays for wearable devices remained strong, but sales of displays for digital still cameras, which have a high ratio of sales, and notebook PCs, which were affected by US-China trade frictions, decreased. The back-end manufacturing of displays in the non-mobile category is mainly handled by JDI's manufacturing subsidiary in the Philippines. However, the prolonged quarantine of communities in the Philippines in response to the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in manufacturing continuing at a low operating rate even after production restarted. For the fourth quarter, sales decreased 13.5% YoY to JPY12,980 million.

Business Results for the Fourth Quarter

JDI's net sales for the fourth quarter of FY 2019 were JPY 116,246 million, a decline of JPY 55,084 million YoY that was due to lower demand in smartphone displays and the Covid-19 pandemic. While sales decreased sharply, the operating loss improved by JPY 13,896 million from the same period of the previous year to a loss of JPY 5,911 million, due to the effect of the structural reforms implemented in the first half of the FY 2019. An ordinary loss of JPY 11,125 million was recorded due to an share of loss of entities accounted for using equity method of JPY 1,495 million and maintenance costs of JPY 1,293 million for the Hakusan Plant, which was under a production suspension. In addition, JPY 4,954 million in business restructuring expenses and JPY 3,638 million in costs related to improper accounting treatments were recorded, while a gain on the sale of investment securities due to the transfer of JOLED Inc. shares of JPY 30,594 million result was recorded as extraordinary income. As a result, net income attributable to owners of the parent was JPY 9,468 million.
