Summary of Consolidated Financial ResultsSales of components used in consumer electronics increased during Q1 as compared with the three months ended March 31, 2012; however, total Q1 revenue fell below that of the prior first quarter, ended June 30, 2011 ("the prior period") due mainly to a decline in sales of mobile phone handsets and components, despite contributions from Kyocera Unimerco A/S and Kyocera Display Corporation, which became consolidated subsidiaries of Kyocera in July 2011 and February 2012, respectively. The company's profits were also adversely affected by the yen's appreciation, coupled with a Q1 charge of JPY21,300* (USD266) million for environmental remediation at AVX Corporation, a U.S.-based subsidiary.

On a consolidated basis, Q1 net sales decreased 2.5% compared to the prior period, to JPY297,726 (USD3,769) million; a loss from operations of JPY2,002 (USD25) million was recorded due to the remediation charge at AVX Corporation; income before income taxes decreased 88.2%, to JPY4,727 (USD60) million; and net income attributable to shareholders of Kyocera Corporation decreased 73.5%, to JPY6,570 (USD83) million.
