Hoya Reports Q2 Results; Achieves Highest Half-Year Profit
Hoya Corporation announced financial results for the second quarter ended September 30, 2015.
During the quarter, the Group revenues totaled 1 30,165 million yen, increasing by 7.4% from the
same period last year.
In the Life Care segment, sales in the eyeglass lens business expanded in overseas markets. The
contact lens retail business reported a major increase compared to the same quarter last year when
sales significantly declined following the increase in Japan’s consumption tax. Sales of medical
endoscopes weakened, however, thanks to the ongoing recovery sales in the intraocular lens
business for cataract surgery, overall sales in the medical related products business were strong.
For the six months ended September 30, 2015, revenues totaled 256,403 million yen, increasing by
9.4% year-on-year. Pre-tax profit posted 64,759 million yen and profit for the term was 50,790
million yen, both the best first-half profit total in the company’s history.
