Non-consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter of 2008 were an operating loss of 2,777 million yen due to significant decline in sales. The ordinary loss of 1,920 million yen was improved compared to the operating loss. This is attributable to the dividend payments by the consolidated subsidiaries and a subsidy from Hiroshima Prefecture for plant construction.
In the full year consolidated earnings results, the operating loss of 1,806 million yen improved by 494 million, ordinary income of 202 million yen improved by 102 million yen, and net loss of 366 million yen improved by 434 million from the previous forecast announced on January 21st. These are attributable to compression of personnel costs by a company-wide reduction in overtime work, implementation of temporary furloughs, and an employment adjustment among temporary staff, as well as effort to saving on each and every cost.
