Q&A of financial results for Q2 of the year ending March 31, 2016:

Q: Can you tell us about the sales results of the first half and the sales targets for the second half of the digital cameras–interchangeable lens type?

A: The downward trend has been continued in the market for digital cameras– interchangeable lens type and our sales unit on a year-to-year basis. However, our profitability improved due to the raising sales ratio of middle and high-end class models in the market of Europe and China and the effective use of our expenses. We will continue our policy of securing earnings by implementing activities geared towards increasing sales of middle and high-end class models and promoting greater efficiency largely through cost improvements in the second half of this fiscal year.
