Summary

In comparison with the prior first half ("FY12-H1"), this first half was characterized by the impact of the yen's appreciation; sluggish growth in demand for components used in industrial equipment and digital consumer electronics; a decrease in sales of solar energy products outside of Japan; and an overall decrease in sales of telecommunications equipment. Nonetheless, newly added revenue from LCD manufacturer Optrex Corporation (now Kyocera Display Corporation) led to increased consolidated net sales as compared to FY12-H1 *1. Profit decreased compared with the previous first half, primarily due to a JPY21,300 (USD266) million charge *2 recorded at AVX Corporation, a U.S.-based subsidiary, for environmental remediation in New Bedford Harbor, Massachusetts (U.S.A.), and to the general impact of the yen's appreciation.

As a result, compared to FY12-H1, consolidated net sales increased 0.7%, to JPY608,431 (USD7,800) million; profit from operations decreased 61.8%, to JPY25,891 (USD332) million; income before income taxes decreased 52.7%, to JPY35,732 (USD458) million; and net income attributable to shareholders of Kyocera Corporation decreased 45.8%, to JPY25,371 (USD325) million.

"In the second quarter, we saw increased demand for components used in digital consumer electronics, in particular for smartphones, as well as expanded sales in our solar energy business in the Japanese market," stated Kyocera Corporation president, Tetsuo Kuba. "This led to increased sales and profit compared to the first quarter, and with a pretax profit ratio of 10%, we have bounced back to double-digit margins."
