Calculation of estimated amount of added value
What is estimated amount of added value?
- Test calculations were conducted on the “intensity of amount of added value” with the aim of understanding changes in added value created by MGC and the MGC Group against the intensity of environmental impacts. The “amount of added value” indicates the amount of value generated through manufacture, services, and similar.
- Amount of added value is generally found using the following formulas.
Amount of added value = net sales - external purchases figure (material costs, purchased parts costs, freight costs, external processing costs, etc.)
Amount of added value = ordinary income + personnel costs + rental costs + depreciation and amortization + financial costs + taxes and public dues
- As this information includes figures which are not made publicly available, direct calculations are difficult.
- Meanwhile, as the ratio of added value per chemical industries company is published in the “Tabulated statistical overview—definite reports (data)” (appendix table 7) in the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry’s Basic Survey of Japanese Business Structure and Activities, estimated added value was calculated with reference to this information.
All chemical industries
|Value added ratio||23.5||25.6||26.8||26.9||25.9||-|
Calculation of estimated amount of added value
- Relational expression of net sales and amount of added value
The estimated amount of added value was calculated from “amount of added value = net sales X value added ratio”
MGC (non-consolidated) / MGC (consolidated)
|Net sales (non-consolidated)||(Billions of yen)||385.2||311.1||299.2||364.4||375.1||351.3|
|Net sales (consolidated)||(Billions of yen)||529.6||593.9||556.5||635.9||649.0||613.3|
|Value added ratio (chemical industries)||(%)||23.5||25.6||26.8||26.9||25.9||25.9|
|Estimated amount of added value (non-consolidated)||(Billions of yen)||90.5||79.6||80.2||98.0||97.2||91.0|
|Estimated amount of added value (consolidated)||(Billions of yen)||124.4||152.0||149.1||171.1||168.1||158.9|
* In the case of fiscal years for which the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has not released statistics, the value-added ratio of the previous fiscal year is used.
