Preliminary Report on Non-Consolidated Sales Figures
(Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2016)
DISCO Corporation today released a preliminary report of the non-consolidated sales figures for the fourth quarter (4Q) of fiscal year 2016.
|Quarterly Non-Consolidated Sales Figures for Fiscal Year 2016
|Fiscal Year 2016 (A)
|(Reference) Fiscal Year 2015 (B)
|YoY Change (A/B)
|Non-consolidated net sales for the fourth quarter amounted to ¥32,879 million, with a YoY increase of 15.0%, and a QoQ increase of 33.2%. This brought total sales for the fiscal year to ¥113,297 million, which is equivalent to 102.0% of the latest non-consolidated financial forecast (net sales of ¥111,100 million).
In precision processing equipment, inquiries were strong for a wide range of applications, including memory applications. Dicing saw and grinder shipments were firm, particularly in the Asia region, and maintained a very high level.
Sales of precision processing tools, which are supplied as consumables, were affected by a decrease in the operating days of customers due to the season. However, DISCO had a large number of demand for both dicing blades and grinding wheels. Thus, the shipment volume remained at a high level, continuing from the previous quarter.
As a result, net sales have significantly exceeded our previous record for the fourth quarter (January to March).
|The next preliminary report for consolidated sales and individual earnings for the fourth quarter will be released on April 26, 2017. The official financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 will be reported to the Tokyo Stock Exchange on May 10, 2017.

DISCO Corporation (the Company) 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 the financial results of our company to investors. The above preliminary report of sales is based on certain information available to the Company at the time of announcement, and actual operating results may differ from the preliminary report due to various factors.
