Results of operations in 2018 (Years ended March 31)

In Communications Solutions business, although sales of digital coherent-related products have fallen by continuing inventory adjustments in the Chinese market, demand for optical fiber and cable has been strong globally, and network systems-related construction work and sales of equipment have trended well in Japan.
In addition, we also decided on investment to increase production in September last year to strengthen our optical fiber manufacturing capacity to about double the level of fiscal year 2016 by fiscal year 2019. We will build a production and supply framework able to cope with globally increasing demand and promote sales expansion in the global market.
