"Based on its strong product line-up and current market demand, Nissan is maintaining its full-year earnings guidance," Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn said in a statement.
Shares of Nissan ended Monday 0.1 percent higher before the earnings release compared with a 1.8 percent rise in the benchmark index.
The automaker also said operating profit margin for the nine months to December was 4.1 percent, which compared with 6.6 percent at Honda Motor Co and 9.7 percent at Toyota.
Nissan aims to boost its operating profit margin as well as global market share to 8 percent each by the year ending March 2017. Recent hurdles include product recalls and sales slowdown in markets such as Thailand and Russia.

The automaker sold a record 5.1 million vehicles globally last year, up 3.3 percent from a year earlier thanks in part to the recovery in China and weaker yen.
The yen has fallen nearly 9 percent against the U.S. dollar since the beginning of the financial year in March 2013.
Nissan, French automaker Renault SA - which owns 43.4 percent of Nissan - and Renault's Russian subsidiary AvtoVAZ jointly sold 8.26 million vehicles in 2013, up 2.1 percent on year.
