Nintendo (NTDOY) increases sales and earnings guidance for FY 2022

Nintendo is out with their Q3 2022 earnings results, and the company is actually increasing guidance for both sales and earnings. Please take a look at the details.

Nintendo has just issued its financial results for the first three months of their fiscal year 2022, and the Big N has some good news for investors in the form of increased sales and earnings guidance.


Nintendo increased their financial forecast for both revenue and earnings for the fiscal year 2022 ending in March.

The company added this explanation in the Notice of Full-Year Financial Forecast and Dividend Forecast Modifications document posted to the official Nintendo Investor Relations website:

Based on the impact on Nintendo Switch hardware production due to the factors such as the semiconductor shortage and the sales performance of Nintendo Switch software for the actual and after, the Company modifies its financial forecast in consideration of the revised sales prospects as well as the revised assumed exchange rate.

The assumed exchange rate after the third quarter and at the end of the fiscal year has been revised from 105 yen to 110 yen per U.S. dollar. The assumed exchange rate for euro remains unchanged at 125 yen per euro.

The new modified financial forecast from Nintendo has a 4.2% decrease in hardware sales expectations and an increase of 10% for software unit sales.

The company also increased its expected Year end dividend payout from 870 to 1,080 yen. This is still down from the year ago payout of 1410 yen, but the stock is currently set to pay out a 3% annual dividend yield based on today’s update.

It’s interesting to note that while the company is increasing its sales expectations by 3.1% from its previous guidance in November 2021, its profit projections have increased by 14.3%. This means that stock will appear even more valuable to anyone who may have thought that Nintendo (NTDOY) was cheap on a price-to-earnings (P/E) basis before today’s earnings release. 

There were a lot of great tidbits of news in the full Nintendo Q3 2022 earnings report, including the Switch passing Wii in lifetime console sales. I mean, who could have seen that coming? Certainly no one on Shacknews.
