In addition, Invast also secured a healthy uptick in its commissions earned from its exchange FX business and other channels, yielding a year-end figure of ¥969 million for the year ending March 31, 2016, jumping 12.3% YoY from ¥863 million in the previous fiscal year.
Income Pointed Lower
Another component of Invast’s business metrics that seemed to shine in 2016 was across its income – indeed, operating income notched a vast improvement in the recent fiscal year, disclosing a consolidated figure of ¥311 million for the year ending March 31, 2016, easily outperforming a -¥119 million loss for the past fiscal year.
This strength was not extended to Invast’s net income however, and despite carrying a consolidated figure of ¥496 million in the previous fiscal year, it reported a negative sum of -¥404 million, ending March 31, 2016. EBITDA numbers also corroborated this trend, falling in multiple quarters during 2016 – Q3 2016 represented a bottoming out of just ¥17 million, corresponding to a Q4 2016 high of ¥224 million.
