Non-consolidated net sales of 11,118 million yen for the second quarter of 2009 were up 63.2% from the first quarter of 2009.
The second quarter equipment sales recovered 80% from the same period of last year. Grinder sales continued to stagnate; however, sales of dicing equipment, especially laser saws recorded robust sales thanks to rapid expansion of capital expenditure for LED manufacturing. As a result, the share of laser saws among the dicing saw segment substantially increased. In addition, facility investment for semiconductors and package singulation showed signs of recovery, dicing equipment sales significantly increased from the last quarter.
On the other hand, sales of consumables, which were in a recovery phase after the end of a drastic production adjustment, slightly increased from the last quarter.

The next preliminary report for consolidated sales and individual earnings for the second quarter will be released on October 29, 2009.
