Q&A Session


Why did sales of 1Q exceed the plan?


Recovering Americas sales covered weak Europe sales. Regarding ‘Other’ region, Asia-Pacific which enjoyed steady growth covered China where growth slowed due to worry about global recession. And our new model lineups launched from end of FY2012/03 also contributed.


In spite of the severe macro economic situation, your sales forecast for FY2013/3 show an increase. Could you give me a geographic breakdown by region?


In Europe we worry about weak demand, yet we forecast a steady sales performance due to well received solutions offerings from our direct sales force. As for the Americas, we are on course to exceed our plan, aiming to meet our targets for FY2013/3.


Why will ‘Expenses’ on operating income y-o-y increase a little after 1Q?


Impact of PENTAX consolidation and one-time cost of solving back orders using airfreight from the Thai flood, were all included in ‘Expenses’ for 1Q. We forecast a slight increase in expenses y-o-y but these one-time costs will go away and we will continue to control the costs.
