Non-consolidated net sales of 17,181 million yen for the fourth quarter of 2009 were up 16.6% from the third quarter of 2009 and up 261.0% from the fourth quarter of 2008. The full year non-consolidated net sales recorded 49,856 million yen. The achievement ratio of the full year sales amount against the forecasted full-year sales amount (48,000 million yen), announced on February 8, 2009, was 103.9%.
Supported by the improving semiconductor market environment, dicing saws recorded higher sales than last quarter especially for applications such as LED manufacturing and package singulation. In the grinder segment, equipment for ultrathinning continued to ship to subcontract assembly manufacturers. Sales of consumables decreased slightly from last quarter due to a seasonal factor.
The next preliminary report for consolidated sales and individual earnings for the fourth quarter will be released on April 21, 2010. The official financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009 will be reported on May 13, 2010 to the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
