Results of operations in FY2020 (Year ended March 31, 2021)

With respect to Communications Solutions, although demand for optical fibers, etc. in North America remained strong, the competitive environment continued to be challenging. Sales of network products and industrial lasers, etc. declined, partly because of a slowdown in construction starts in Japan and a reduction in clients’ investments due to the impact of COVID-19, and partly because of foreign exchange impacts mainly in South America; and consequently, both net sales and profit declined.
We will strive to improve the productivity in order to capture strong demand for optical fibers, etc. in North America, and also aim at expanding sales of high density multicore rollable ribbon cables, which the Company has technological advantages, as demand for space-saving, high workability products is increasing in the North American optical fiber cable market that is expected to further expand. With respect to digital coherent products as well, we will work on expanding sales of high-power products and accelerate a shift to next-generation products.
