Results of operations in FY2022 (Year ended March 31, 2023)

Electronics Component Materials business saw an increase in net sales, because we captured strong demand for products related to communications infrastructure and products for power semiconductors, and copper bullion prices increased. However, profit decreased, affected by continued increase in prices of raw materials and fuel as well as a decline in demand for auto components and electronics-related products in the second half of the year.
With respect to Electronics Component Materials business, we will work on further cost pass-through to address the increase in raw material and fuel prices, expand sales of oxygen-free copper strips for optical submarine cables which support global communications networks and for power semi-conductors, and improve the product mix.
