In the Digital Entertainment segment during the three-month period ended June 30, 2017, a decline in revenues from packaged products of new own game titles and third party software has led to a decrease of net sales, while strong download sales of previously released catalogue titles such as "NieR:Automata," have resulted in an increase of operating income in the area of console games, compared to the prior fiscal year.

In the smart devices and PC browser area, our established lineup of popular games such as "FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS," "HOSHI NO DRAGON QUEST," "DRAGON QUEST MONSTERS SUPER LIGHT" and "KINGDOM HEARTS Union ?" is continuing to show strong performances and increased both net sales and operating profit, compared to the prior fiscal year.

In the area of massively multiplayer online role playing games, revenues from sales of the latest expansion disk of "FINAL FANTASY XIV" and increase of number of monthly subscribers boosted by the expansion resulted in an increase of net sale and operating income, compared to the prior fiscal year.

In the Amusement segment, operation of the amusement facilities has been showing steady performance while no new amusement machine was launched, which led to the decline in this segment's net sales.

In the Publication segment, sales of comic books continues strong, compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year.

In the Merchandising segment, sales and licensing performed strongly thanks to character goods and soundtracks derived from the Group's own IPs, as well as character goods originated in renowned third-party IPs.
