Although non-consolidated sales increased compared to the same quarter (October-December) in previous year, the GP ratio decreased due to the effect of exchange rate fluctuations. In addition, non-consolidated sales profits decreased because of an increase in administrative expenses due to active research and development activities.

This brought the operating profit of non-consolidated net sales up until the third quarter (April-December) to ¥14,220 million, which is less than the most recent sales forecast. However, because the yen remained weak and the product mix improved, the predicted net sales profits were achieved.
