Tokyo, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lead Real Estate Co., Ltd (Nasdaq: LRE) (“LRE” or the “Company”), a Japanese real estate developer of luxury residential properties, including single-family homes and condominiums, across Tokyo, Kanagawa prefecture, and Sapporo, today announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023.
Highlights for Fiscal 2023:
For fiscal 2023, the Company reported total revenue of JPY17,442,248,000, representing an increase of 22% compared to total revenue of JPY14,321,186,000 for fiscal 2022.
For fiscal 2023, the Company had net income of JPY536,482,000, or JPY43.39 per share, representing an increase of 2% compared to net income of JPY528,383,000, or JPY43.83 per share, for fiscal 2022.
The increase in revenue was primarily due to a 21% increase in the sale price of land deliveries for single family homes, a 19% increase in the sale price of land deliveries for condominiums, and a 119% increase in the sale price of condominium building deliveries in fiscal 2023 compared to fiscal 2022.
During fiscal 2023, the increase in net income was mainly attributable to the increase in total revenue, offset by a 23% increase in the cost of revenue for real estate sales. The increase in the cost of revenue was primarily due to increases in construction costs, such as labor and material costs, compared to the prior fiscal year.
Selling, general and administrative expenses in fiscal 2023 increased by 1% compared to fiscal 2022.
As of June 30, 2023, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of JPY786,373,000 and long-term debt of JPY5,437,668,000, compared to JPY403,108,000 and JPY2,231,544,000, respectively, as of June 30, 2022.
The number of ordinary shares outstanding as of June 30, 2023 and 2022 was 12,498,900.
“We are happy with our progress in fiscal 2023,” said Mr. Eiji Nagahara, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “During this period, we are proud to have significantly increased our total revenue, which resulted from strong growth in sale prices of land deliveries for single-family homes and condominiums, as well as in sale prices of condominium building deliveries, while maintaining modest growth in our selling, general and administrative expenses compared to fiscal 2022. In addition, we continued to be involved in the planning, development, ownership, and operations of hotels in Tokyo, and our hotels are highly regarded by international guests.
“In the U.S., our corporate rental properties in Dallas and Los Angeles continue to grow, as does our high-end real estate. We are also committed to the development and operations of GLOCALY, our interactive media platform, enabling us to offer quality services to customers worldwide. Looking forward, we anticipate developing new rental properties in Las Vegas and other U.S. cities.”
On September 29, 2023, LRE announced the closing of its initial public offering of 1,143,000 American depositary shares at a price of $7.00 per American depositary share to the public for a total of $8,001,000 of gross proceeds to the Company, before deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses.
