Business results and profits
Sales in this term decreased to 755.6 billion yen (down 3.4% from the previous year), due mainly to the effects of the exchange rate and decreased sales in the optoelectronics business. Although there were increased sales in the automotive parts business in Japan and internationally, and rationalization in the company, profits also declined from the effects of the exchange rate and decreased sales in the optoelectronics business. Operating profits fell to 40.6 billion yen (down 5.0% from the previous year), ordinary income fell to 39.0 billion yen (down 6.0% from the previous year) and net income attributable to parent company shareholders fell to 16.2 billion yen (down 19.9% from the previous year).
Consequently, the annual dividend from surplus distributed this year was 53 yen per share.
