  • New orders stagnated in our core consulting segment due to our refraining from in-person seminars and workshops. However, business has recovered at Funai Consulting Shanghai since April with the subsiding of Covid-19 in China.
  • Sales increased in the logistics segment through spot orders and deep mining of existing clients.
  • Cancelled seminars and a decrease in ad placements had an impact on the direct recruiting segment, but operating losses have decreased.

2. Full-year Outlook & Impact of Covid-19

(2) Outlook & Impact of Covid-19 by Segment

  • The decline in orders through the second quarter due to operational limitations caused by Covid-19 will inevitably have an impact on full-year performance.
  • Consulting activity in China is returning to pre-Covid levels.

Impact on FY2020 1H (Jan. - Jun.)

In Japan, our ability to seek new orders severely hampered as we have refrained from in-person seminars

Consulting and consultant visits since March.

Sales declined sharply in China as consulting activity was impossible in Feb. and Mar., but have gradually recovered between Apr. and Jun. as operations resumed.

Outlook

As Covid-19 spreads, we will offer industry-specific solutions for adapting to the Covid situation, remote support, online seminars, and management workshops via web conferencing. Impact likely on full-year performance in the Japanese consulting segment.

China-based consulting business is predicted to return to pre- Covid levels starting in 3Q.

Logistics

Direct recruiting

Other businesses

Ongoing projects from last year ensured that performance was not as badly impacted as other segments amid limited ability to seek new orders: up 9.4% over the same period in FY2019.

Drop in client acquisitions due to suspension of seminars and fewer ad placements caused sales to drop sharply through 2Q, but cost reductions meant operating losses decreased.

Operational restrictions and delays have had an impact in the IT and call center consulting sectors.

No major effects on the systems development sector.

Restrictions through 2Q have delayed new client acquisitions, so the full-year forecast is for sales at a similar level to, and operating income down from, FY2019.

New customer acquisition is a challenge at this time, but we predict an increase in revenues this year due to work with accounts added last year.

Revenue structure will improve as a result of keeping a lid on promotion costs.

Returning to normal performance in the IT and call center consulting sectors will likely take time.
