Total current assets, at 942.0 billion yen, were up 3.0% or 27.5 billion yen. This was largely attributable to the increase in cash on hand and in banks by 20.5% or 85.0 billion yen to 499.2 billion yen, despite the decreases in short-term investments by 33.5% or 10.8 billion yen to 21.5 billion yen, notes and accounts receivable, trade by 6.2% or 8.7 billion yen to 132.8 billion yen, as well as work in process for real estate inventories by 21.8 billion yen and real estate inventories by 4.7 billion yen, both of which are chiefly owing to the effect of exclusion of a consolidated subsidiary, Secom Home Life Co., Ltd., from the scope of consolidation, due to the transfer of all of its issued shares in December 2020.
Total fixed assets, at 922.1 billion yen, were up 2.4% or 21.4 billion yen. This was mainly attributable to the increases in investment securities by 7.9% or 19.8 billion yen to 272.1 billion yen and net defined benefit asset by 24.4% or 7.7 billion yen to 39.5 billion yen, despite the decrease in deferred income taxes by 20.5% or 6.4 billion yen to 25.0 billion yen.
Total current liabilities amounted to 361.1 billion yen, were down 3.5% or 13.1 billion yen, owing largely to the decreases in notes and accounts payable, trade by 9.6% or 4.5 billion yen to 42.8 billion yen, bank loans by 11.9% or 4.5 billion yen to 33.8 billion yen, current portion of straight bonds by 84.9% or 2.4 billion yen to 0.4 billion yen, and accrued income taxes by 5.3% or 1.3 billion yen to 23.4 billion yen.
Long-term liabilities increased by 1.8% or 4.9 billion yen to 273.2 billion yen, compared to those at the end of the previous fiscal year. This was mainly attributable to the increases in investment deposits by policyholders, unearned premiums and other insurance liabilities by 3.7% or 6.4 billion yen to 181.0 billion yen, and long-term loans by 20.4% or 1.7 billion yen to 10.4 billion yen, despite the decreases in guarantee deposits received by 5.9% or 1.9 billion yen to 30.6 billion yen, and net defined benefit liability by 6.8% or 1.6 billion yen to 22.0 billion yen.
Total net assets amounted to 1,229.8 billion yen, 4.9% or 57.3 billion yen higher than those at the end of the previous fiscal year, mainly due to the increases in retained earnings by 3.9% or 37.5 billion yen and unrealized gains on securities by 82.9% or 10.0 billion yen, remeasurements of defined benefit plans, net of taxes by 287.4% or 3.1 billion yen, and noncontrolling interests by 7.5% or 10.2 billion yen, despite the decrease in foreign currency translation adjustments by 27.1% or 3.6 billion yen.
