-UNIQLO International:
Significant rises in both sales and income in the first half. UNIQLO operations in Greater China (China, Hong Kong and Taiwan), South Korea, the United States and Europe all outstripped expectations, while UNIQLO's Southeast Asian operation performed favorably and to plan. UNIQLO International is expected to continue to produce strong growth in the second half, with continued strong performances from UNIQLO operations in Greater China, South Korea and Southeast Asia. 
 
Losses at UNIQLO USA are expected to shrink, while profit at UNIQLO Europe is seen holding steady at the breakeven point, even when costs relating to the opening of the first German global flagship store are taken into account.

-Global Brands:
Reported gains in sales and income in the first half. Sales and income gains at GU were slightly lower than expected in the first half owing to some discounting on excess winter stock, but GU sales are still forecast to exceed ¥ 100 billion for the business year as a whole.
