  • Operating profit slid by 6.9 billion yen (-16%) from the previous year to 37.1 billion yen, due mainly to the costs incurred upfront through the opening of the Shanghai World Financial Center.
  • Ordinary profit declined for the same reason as operating profit, falling by 6.5 billion yen year-on-year to 17.3 billion yen.
  • Net profit for the year fell by 35.5 billion yen (-90%) year over year to 4.1 billion yen due to temporary expenses associated with the opening of the Shanghai World Financial Center and losses on the write-down of marketable securities in addition to the backlash from the drop in the large amount of extraordinary profit recorded the previous fiscal year.
