Non-consolidated net sales of 21,076 million yen for the fourth quarter of 2010 were up 19.9% from the third quarter of 2010 and up 22.7% from the fourth quarter of 2009. The ratio of progress for the full year sales against the forecast sales amount (83,000 million yen), announced on February 7, 2011 was 101.9%.
The previous third quarter sales dropped due to the influence of the inventory adjustment in the semiconductor market, but shipments of laser saws for LED manufacturing and blade dicers for electronic components recovered in this fourth quarter. In the grinder segment, equipment for ultrathinning continued to ship for flash memory application. Sales of consumables recorded robust sales in spite of the negative impact of yen appreciation.
Up to now, the influence on our performance due to the Tohoku region Pacific Ocean offshore earthquake that occurred on March 11 is negligible.
The next preliminary report for consolidated sales and individual earnings for the fourth quarter will be released on April 26, 2011. The official financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010 will be reported to the Tokyo Stock Exchange on May 11, 2011.
