The net loss for 2014 was ¥21.8 billion ($186 million), compared with net income of ¥5.1 billion the previous year, McDonald’s Holdings Co. (Japan) said in a statement to the Tokyo Stock Exchange on Thursday. The average of three analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg was a ¥17.5 billion loss. The company last posted an annual loss in 2003, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
