While the administrative expenses were slightly higher compared to the same period during the previous year, the sales of both equipment and consumables increased, and the GP ratio also increased due to improvements in product mix. This resulted in a significant increase of the non-consolidate operating income in the fourth quarter (January-March).

Although full-year operating income decreased compared to the previous year due to both the increased administrative expenses (including R&D expenses and personnel costs) and the decrease of the GP ratio because of the effects of exchange rate, DISCO achieved the second highest non-consolidated operating income level in the company’s history.
As a result, non-consolidated operating income, ordinary income, and net income reached 103.1%, 102.4%, and 103.5% of the latest forecast, respectively (¥21,100 million, ¥23,700 million, and ¥18,700 million).
