Operating income totaled JPY 7.2 billion, down by JPY 3.9 billion over the corresponding period of last year, and net income was JPY 0.5 billion, a decrease of JPY 2.4 billion. In the company's Specialty Group, ceramics, used in optical fiber connectors, saw a rise in demand and an increase in shipments.

Operating income was JPY 4.7 billion, an increase of JPY 94 million (2.1%) over last year.
