Overview of 1 st Quarter FY2010 Financial Results and Business Outlook"We are seeing slight recovery in systems construction, however, the Japanese economy is still struggling for full recovery and is difficult to foresee," said Koichi Suzuki, President and CEO of IIJ. "As for our operating results, connectivity and outsourcing service revenues steadily increased by 2.0% YoY followed by the continuous demands for outsourcing services for cost reduction purposes. For systems integration ("SI"), there were scale-down of a contract from a certain large client for both construction and operation and maintenance. Systems construction revenue increased YOY with carried over projects from 4Q09, systems operation and maintenance decreased YoY. As a result, our revenues were nearly the same as 1Q09. And SG&A expenses increased as there were increases in personnel related and other expenses which increases annually at the beginning of the fiscal year. "For the coming quarters, we expect connectivity and outsourcing services to grow steadily as continuous demands for bandwidth and outsourcing are anticipated and demands for cloud computing are gradually growing. In addition, we would like to pursue getting more systems construction projects toward the latter half of FY2010, which we hope will increase along with the recovery of the Japanese economy. We aim to complete the transaction to acquire the subsidiary of AT&T Japan LLC on September 1, 2010. We believe this business acquisition will broaden the basis of our business growth.
