According to Berg's financial results for the first quarter of the fiscal year ending February 2022 announced on July 6, operating revenue was 73,369 million yen (up 3.8% year-on-year), operating profit was 3,341 million yen (down 21.9%). Ordinary income was 3,551 million yen (down 20.8%), and net income attributable to the parent company was 2,401 million yen (down 6.6%).
As for the sales policy, all stores will continue to operate normally while taking measures to prevent the spread of various infections. In April, in commemoration of the number of Berg Card members surpassing 2 million, a large-scale campaign was held to win luxury prizes.
In addition to leaflets and SNS, we are actively promoting products to a wide range of generations by using radio broadcasts in collaboration with popular groups.
The online supermarket "Berg Delivery Pack" is gradually expanding the number of compatible stores to improve convenience.
In addition, the introduction of "Smaberg," a service that eliminates waiting for cashiers and enables smart shopping, has expanded.
The product policy is to procure products from better production areas and develop directly imported products to provide high-quality products at affordable prices. The company's own brand "Kurashi ni Berg kurabelc" has expanded its handling. In order to meet the growing demand for home-cooked meals, we sold special side dishes from Berg and proposed recipes for arranging products.
For store operations, we are promoting efficient chain operations by establishing an LSP (work allocation system), appropriately allocating personnel, and utilizing labor-saving equipment, based on the standardized corporate structure that is the company's greatest feature.
For store investment, in order to strengthen competitiveness and promote standardization, we refurbished three existing stores, expanded prepared foods and simple products, and renewed facilities to provide a comfortable shopping space. In March 2021, the "Satte Minami Store" in Satte City, Saitama Prefecture was closed, and as of the end of May 2021, the number of stores was 122.
The logistics system aims to improve delivery efficiency, strengthen product prices, and stabilize quality by procuring products in large quantities from production areas and manufacturers, taking advantage of the strengths of in-house logistics. We will continue to review the delivery system according to store operations and work to improve the efficiency of store operations.
For the full year, operating revenue is 283,597 million yen (down 0.3%), operating income is 11,308 million yen (down 5.2%), ordinary income is 11,996 million yen (down 5.4%), and net income attributable to the parent company is 8 billion yen. It is expected to be 31 million yen (down 9.0%).
