Operating income for the nine months period that ended on December 31, 2019, increased 0.2 per cent to ¥48.2 billion.

Ordinary income decreased 7.5 per cent to ¥47.4 billion, partly due to a decline in non-operating income reflecting the impact of foreign exchange movements. Profit attributable to owners of parent decreased 26 per cent to ¥30.2 billion, reportedly due to recording one-time expenses associated with the transfer of subsidiaries in films under extraordinary loss.
Materials business field, sales in Q3 FY19 were ¥481.5 billion decreased 3.4 per cent, and operating income was ¥17.2 billion, mostly unchanged from the previous year.
