Non-consolidated earnings results for the first quarter of 2008 were lower than expected figures which were announced May 12th, 2008. The achievement ratios were 17.8% in ordinary profit and 19.8% in net income respectively. The factors in these results were; precision processing equipment sales stagnated due to a slowdown of capital investment among our customers, mainly memory manufacturers, and sales administrative expenses increased especially in personal costs and R&D expenses because we accelerated our strategic investment for future growth.

Purpose of the Preliminary Report
DISCO Corporation makes preliminary reports on non-consolidated sales, earnings results, and consolidated sales as soon as they are tabulated. The preliminary reports intend to deliver real time information on financial results of our company to investors. The quarterly non-consolidated earnings results will not be disclosed at the official quarterly results; however, we disclose the figures as reference information in order to secure the company's management transparency.
