Mitsui Fudosan Co. Ltd. welcomed fiscal 2018 with a 1.1% year-over-year decrease in fiscal first-quarter profit attributable to owners at about ¥33.88 billion from ¥34.26 billion.

As of June 30, the Japanese developer's total assets were valued at roughly ¥5.590 trillion, with a 36.2% equity ratio.
Earlier in reporting its record fiscal full-year 2017, Mitsui Fudosan said it expects revenue from operations of ¥1.790 trillion, operating income of ¥245.00 billion, ordinary income of ¥227.00 billion, attributable profit of ¥140.00 billion and EPS of ¥141.68 in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018.
