First half FY2008 results: SoftBank and KDDI profits increase, DoCoMo’s trends is downward

In the last few days NTT, NTT-DoCoMo, KDDI and SoftBank announced their first half financial results. SoftBank and KDDI are the winners both for market share and for profits, while DoCoMo‘s results and market shares are sinking, and pulling the NTT-Group down at this time. Extrapolation indicates that DoCoMo‘s net profits may fall into the red about one year from now, drastic action is taken soon.

Net after-tax income of Japan's top three mobile operators NTT-docomo, KDDI and SoftBank. Currently docomo's net profits follows a downward trend, and risks to drop into the red, unless docomo takes drastic measures.

The thin lines show linear interpolations of quarterly net profit data. Our extrapolation seems to indicate that DoCoMo‘s net profit might fall into the red towards then end of calender year 2008 unless drastic action is taken. If current trends continue, SoftBank‘s net profits might exceed DoCoMo‘s mid-2008. We expect DoCoMo to take dramatic action before this happens.
