Full-year forecast of FY 2014
In the industrial optical systems field, sales decreased from ¥16.1 billion to ¥13.3 billion due in part to withdrawal of the glass substrates for HDDs business. In the performance materials field, sales of TAC films increased and operating income for the business overall was ¥6.6 billion, resulting in an operating income ratio of 21.8%.
Analyzing the factors behind the change in operating income, the effect of the withdrawal of the glass substrates for HDDs business accounted for ¥2.0 billion. Another plus factor was the TAC film business. The same can be said of pickup lenses for Blu-ray DiscsTM. Interchangeable lenses for DSLR cameras were also solid. Lenses for compact digital cameras were impacted by a contracting market, which offset favorable performance in pickup lenses for Blu-ray Discs and the sensing field. As a result, the effect of withdrawal from the glass substrates for HDDs business was left as profit.
