Resona Holdings, Inc. ("RHD") hereby announces that it revised its consolidated earnings target for the fiscal year 2021 (April 1, 2021- March 31, 2022) which it announced on Nov. 9, 2021 as detailed below.

2. Reason for the Revision

RHD revised its target of net income attributable to owners of the parent downward by JPY 36.0 billion, primarily because in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021 1) it implemented the measure to restore soundness of its securities portfolio, cutting latent losses on its foreign bonds, in response to the rapid rise in the U.S. treasury yield and 2) it also revised down the obligor categories of certain corporate borrowers so that it could add loan loss reserves.

Further details will be forthcoming on May 12, 2022 when RHD officially announces its fiscal year 2021 results.

Reference Information

1. Outline of Consolidated Income

In response to the sharp rise in the U.S. interest rates in the 4Q, RHD's subsidiary banks sold some of their available-for-sale securities, mostly foreign bonds, with a view to ensuring flexibility and soundness in the management of securities portfolio in the coming fiscal year 2022, selecting and disposing of those securities they find economically unreasonable to carry, incurring net loss on bonds amounting to JPY 50.9 billion in the 4Q, or JPY54.0 billion for the full year (JPY 68.0 billion decrease on a year-on-year basis).

In addition, RHD's subsidiary banks revised down obligor categories of certain borrowers and incurred credit expenses amounting to JPY38.5 billion in the 4Q of last fiscal year, or JPY59.0 billion for the full year (JPY1.5 billion decrease on a year-on-year basis).

Due to the reasons described above, net income attributable to owners of the parent is estimated to be JPY109.0 billion, JPY15.4 billion lower than the previous fiscal year.

As we continue to work on income and cost structure reforms, RHD's consolidated core income, which is defined as 1) net interest income from domestic loans and deposits plus 2) fee income less 3) operating expenses, is steadily on the rise and estimated to be JPY129 billion (increase of JPY12.6 billion on a year-on-year basis).
