Non-consolidated net sales of 13,915 million yen for the second quarter of 2008 were down 1.2% from the first quarter of 2008 and down 34.5% from the second quarter of 2007. The achievement ratio of sales against the forecast sale amount (29,000 million yen for 1H), announced on August 8th, 2008, was 96.5%. While developed countries entered an economic recession, the semiconductor industry has been continuously negative for investments due to prolonging recession especially among memory manufacturers who are struggling with an over-supply problem. Under such market environment, DISCO's sales for the second quarter almost stayed at the same level of the last quarter, and significantly declined compared to the same period the previous year. Consumables sales grew slightly from the last quarter and the sales of precision processing equipment were slightly declined. The orders for the second quarter were below the quarterly sale.

There is currently no revision to the annual sales forecast for fiscal year 2008. The next preliminary report for consolidated sales and individual earnings for the second quarter will be released on October 28, 2008.

Purpose of the Preliminary Report
DISCO Corporation makes preliminary reports on non-consolidated sales, earnings results, and consolidated sales as soon as they are tabulated. The preliminary reports are intended to deliver real time information on financial results of our company to investors.
