Fujifilm Holdings reported its April-September financial results, saying the net profit rose by 29% year-on-year to 40.6 billion Yen on a revenue of 1.182 trillion Yen; a slight rise from the 1.174 trillion Yen in 2013. Profit in operation increased by 25% to 71.5 billion Yen.
The revenue of Imaging Solutions fell by 4.2% to 168.9 billion Yen and profit turned black, to 4.6 billion Yen from a loss of 5.4 billion Yen from the previous year. The company attributed the favourable results to continued strong sales of instant cameras and expansion of value-added printing businesses such as Year Album. In the electronic imaging business, total sales dropped due to the reduction of the compact dgital camera line-up and its sales volume. However, sales of the X-series including the Fujifilm X-T1 were strong, which contributed to improvement of the profitability of this division.
