The non-consolidated net sales for the second quarter amounted to ¥28,430 million (a year-on-year decrease of 1.8% and a quarter-on-quarter increase of 4.1%). The net sales for the first half of FY2016 were ¥55,736 million, which achieved 103.6% of the latest figures for the non-consolidated financial forecast for the first half of the financial year (net sales of ¥53,800 million).

After July, semiconductor manufacturers in Asia region increased their capital expenditure for equipment for processing memory devices. This resulted in the sales of precision processing equipment, with sales of grinders for thinning remaining particularly strong. In addition, sales of precision processing tools (consumables) achieved a new record for a single quarter because shipments in both dicing blades and grinding wheels remained high in proportion to the equipment utilization rates of customers.
As a result, sales for the second quarter (July - September) reached about the same level as the same quarter of the previous year in spite of the negative impact of the yen’s exchange rate.
The next preliminary report for consolidated sales and individual earnings for the second quarter will be released on October 26, 2016. The official financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016 will be reported to the Tokyo Stock Exchange on November 7, 2016.

The above preliminary report of sales is based on certain information available to the Company at the time of announcement, and actual operating results may differ from the preliminary report due to various factors.
