Preliminary Report on Non-Consolidated Sales Figures
(Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2012)

DISCO Corporation today released a preliminary report of the non-consolidated sales figures for the third quarter (3Q) of fiscal year 2012.

1Q 2Q 1H 3Q 4Q 2H Full Year
Fiscal Year 2012 20,876 23,566 44,443 15,624 - - -

YoY % Change (0.8%) 17.8% 8.2% 2.6% - - -
QoQ % Change 10.0% 12.9% (33.7%) -

Non-consolidated net sales in the third quarter of the current fiscal year increased by 2.6% year on year and declined by 33.7% quarter on quarter to ¥15,624 million. This brought net sales for the year so far to ¥60,067 million, or 77.6% of the ¥77,400 million figure projected in the latest forecasts for our yearly financial results.

Semiconductor manufacturers invested in plant and facilities during the first half of the year, but this investment has now peaked, and manufacturers are tending to curb their spending in the second half. This pattern was reflected in a significant decline in sales of precision processing equipment compared with the previous quarter. However, demand for certain types of end products remained firm, allowing us to maintain high shipment volumes for precision processing blades and wheels, which are consumable items.

The next preliminary report for consolidated sales and individual earnings for the third quarter will be released on January 24, 2013. The official financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 will be reported to the Tokyo Stock Exchange on February 8, 2013.

Purpose of the Preliminary Report
DISCO Corporation (the Company) 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 the financial results of our company to investors. 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.
