Clock Division

Although domestic sales volume fell, sales of products in the medium to high price range did well, thus keeping net sales flat. Operating profits increased as a result of efforts to further cut costs and expenses. Meanwhile, overseas sales fell and generated less revenue due to the slowdown in the Chinese economy and the effects of local currency weakness.
Consequently, net sales for the consolidated fiscal year amounted to 12,853 million yen, a drop of 2.5% compared to the 13,184 million yen in the previous fiscal year. Operating profit amounted to 402 million yen, up 214.7% from 128 million yen in the previous fiscal year. It should be noted that these figures for net sales and operating profit include the results from April to June 2015 posted by the jewelry business that was transferred on June 30, 2015.
