Preliminary Report on Non-Consolidated Sales Figures
(Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2013)
DISCO Corporation today released a preliminary report of the non-consolidated sales figures for the fourth quarter (4Q) of fiscal year 2013.
|Quarterly Non-Consolidated Sales Figures for Fiscal Year 2013
|Fiscal Year 2013(A)
|(Reference) Fiscal Year 2012 (B)
|YoY Change (A/B)
|Non-consolidated net sales for the fourth quarter of the year ending March 2014 increased by 21.9% YoY and 25.8% QoQ to ¥22,346 million. This brought net sales for the whole year to ¥85,685 million, which is equivalent to 101.8% of the most recent forecast for yearly net sales (¥84,200 million).
Sales of precision processing equipment were substantially higher than in the previous quarter. This reflects heightened capital investment by outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) contractors in Asia. Sales of precision processing blades and wheels were lower QoQ because of the number of operating days at customers' facilities. However, shipment volumes remained high, with the result that sales were significantly higher than in the same period a year earlier.
The yearly net sales result is a new record.
|The next preliminary report for consolidated sales and individual earnings for the fourth quarter will be released on April 23, 2014. The official financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 will be reported to the Tokyo Stock Exchange on May 12, 2014.
