Non-consolidated net sales of 4,686 million yen for the fourth quarter of 2008 were down 39.1% from the third quarter of 2008 and down 74.3% from the fourth quarter of 2007 influenced by the global recession.
Due to the radical drop in end product demand after the financial crisis, the semiconductor and electronic component industry suddenly suffered from excess inventory, and their capital investments have been stagnating at a historical low level. As this result, the sales and orders of DISCO’s precision processing equipment have extremely stagnated. Sales and orders of consumables had also experienced a sharp decline since the IT bubble burst in 2001 influenced by a worldwide stagnation of capacity utilization, however, orders of consumables in March 2009 increased compared with the previous month. Non-consolidated sales of fiscal 2009 were decreased 45.0% from 73,485 million yen to 40,384 million yen.

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

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 are intended to deliver real time information on financial results of our company to investors.
