DISCO Corporation today released a preliminary report of the non-consolidated sales figures for the third quarter (3Q) of fiscal year 2008. The official financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 will be reported on February 9, 2009 to the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

Non-consolidated net sales of 7,698 million yen for the third quarter of 2008 were down 44.7% from the second quarter of 2008 and down 58.8% from the third quarter of 2007. The achievement ratio for 3Q sales (on an accumulated basis; 35,698 million yen) against the forecast full-year sale amount (50,000 million yen), announced on November 12, 2008, was 71.3%. Since the global financial crisis arose, DISCO has been facing a severer operating environment. Both sales and orders of precision processing equipment significantly declined because of customers’ further reduction of their investment in plants and equipment. Sales of consumables, which maintained robust shipments until 2Q, have suddenly dropped since November 2008 due to factors such as customers' production adjustment.

The next preliminary report for consolidated sales and individual earnings for the third quarter will be released on January 21, 2009.
