Consolidated Financial Summary for the Fiscal 2nd Quarter ended September 30, 2013

TOKYO, Japan, October 30, 2013 - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. announced its consolidated financial results for the fiscal second quarter and the fiscal first half ended September 30, 2013.

Despite an increase in selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses and depreciation expenses related to the startup of new production plants, consolidated operating income for the fiscal second quarter (July 1, 2013 through September 30, 2013) amounted to 171.4 billion yen, an increase of 70.0% compared to the same period last year, primarily due to increased automobile sales mainly in North America, increased motorcycle sales mostly in Asia and favorable currency effects associated with the depreciation of the Japanese yen. Consolidated income before income taxes amounted to 165.5 billion yen, an increase of 55.8% compared to the same period last year, and consolidated net income*1 amounted to 120.3 billion yen, an increase of 46.4% compared to the same period last year.

Consolidated operating income for the fiscal first half (April 1, 2013 through September 30, 2013) amounted to 356.4 billion yen, an increase of 28.7% compared to the same period last year, and consolidated net income*1 amounted to 242.8 billion yen, an increase of 13.5% compared to the same period last year.

Previously announced forecasts for consolidated net sales and other operating revenue and consolidated operating income for the current fiscal year ending March 31, 2014 will remain unchanged based on the results for this fiscal first half. The previously announced forecast for consolidated net income*1 for the current fiscal year also will remain unchanged due to an expected increase in equity in income of affiliates despite a decrease in other income.

The quarterly dividend for the fiscal second quarter will be 20 yen per share, a 1 yen increase compared to the quarterly dividend for the same period last year. The total cash dividends to be paid for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014 are planned to be 80 yen per share, an increase of 4 yen per share from the previous fiscal year.
