Net income for the twelve months ended Dec. 31, 2016 fell 14.5 percent to 38 billion yen, or $350.3 million, at average exchange rates for the period. Rakuten’s operating profit declined by 17.6 percent to 77.98 billion yen, or $718.9 million. Japan’s largest e-commerce operator said sales grew 9.6 percent to 781.92 billion yen, or $7.21 billion.
