Non-consolidated earnings results for the third quarter of 2008 were significantly down from both last quarter and the third quarter of last fiscal year due to a huge drop in sales, and posted an operating loss of 1,490 million yen. Smaller net loss (950 million yen) compared with ordinary loss (1,520 million yen) is attributable to the adjustment in corporate tax.
