Non-consolidated results for the fourth quarter show that while sales, general and administrative expenses were on target, net sales exceeded the forecast thanks to the resumption of capital investment by some semiconductor manufacturers.
In addition, the yen was lower than anticipated against other currencies. As a result, operating income reached ¥1,772 million, substantially higher than the fourth quarter operating income forecast of ¥203 million. This result represents a year-on-year decline of 32.7% and a quarter-on-quarter increase of 424.5%.
The non-consolidated forecasts for the whole of fiscal year 2011 were operating income of ¥5,300 million, ordinary income of ¥7,900 million and net income of ¥5,400 million. Operating income reached 129.6% of the forecast, ordinary income 123.5% and net income 127.5%.
