FY2019 Business Performance
In the Information segment, sales were weak due to decreased sales of polyester beads as a core component of polymerization toners due to users’ inventory adjustments, despite flat sales of toner resins for pulverized toners.
In the Electrics/Electronics segment, sales were weak due to weak sales of electrolytes for aluminum electrolytic capacitors, despite brisk sales of adhesives for electronic parts.
As a result, total net sales in this segment decreased by 7.8% year on year, to ¥20,985 million. Operating profit was ¥2,937 million (a decrease of 26.6% year on year).
