Hoya Announces Third Quarter Financial Results under IFRS

TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hoya Corporation (TOKYO: 7741) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended December 31, 2012. The full reports are available at: http://www.hoya.co.jp/english/investor/investor_09_25.html

During the quarter, revenues from all operations increased 8.6% to 90,682 million yen, and profit before tax increased 164.3% to 17,634 million yen. Profit for the term was up 215.3% to 10,329 million yen year on year. This significant increase in profit is due to the recording of tremendous expenses in the same period last year suffered from the Thai flooding. Profit attributable to owners of the company was up 217.1% to 10,293 million yen.


For the nine months ended December 31, 2012, revenues from all operations were down 4.5% to 276,399 million yen, while profit before tax was up 45.3% to 59,402 million yen. Profit for the term was up 53.8% to 48,003 million yen year on year, and profit attributable to owners of the company was up 54.1% to 47,903 million yen. This significant increase in profit is due to the recording of 17,912 million yen of insurance income this year in the form compensation for the fixed assets and for the lost profit suffered from the Thai flooding.

"Eyeglass lens business is recovering, though the demand for optical lenses and HDD glass disks are still weak," said Hiroshi Suzuki, chief executive officer of HOYA. "What I must do is to accelerate the pace of growth more in Life Care business."
