Summary of Consolidated Financial ResultsWhile sales and operating profit increased in some reporting segments during the year ended March 31, 2012 ("the period"), these gains were not sufficient to offset the negative impact of other factors influencing Kyocera's consolidated results — including the yen's continued appreciation against the euro and U.S. dollar; weak demand for components used in consumer electronic equipment; and a decline in sales of mobile phones. Consequently, Kyocera's overall results declined during the period in comparison with the year ended March 31, 2011 ("the prior period").

Specifically, consolidated net sales for the period decreased 6.0% compared to the prior period, to JPY1,190,870 (USD14,523) million; profit from operations decreased 32.3%, to JPY105,575 (USD1,288) million; income before income taxes decreased 28.7%, to JPY122,793 (USD1,497) million; and net income attributable to shareholders of Kyocera Corporation decreased 32.3%, to JPY82,901 (USD1,011) million.

"Although this fiscal year was characterized by a difficult business environment, we nevertheless made strategic efforts through merger and acquisition to enhance the future growth prospects of the Kyocera Group," stated Tetsuo Kuba, president of Kyocera Corporation. "In July 2011 we added the Denmark-based industrial cutting tools manufacturer Unimerco Group A/S as a wholly owned subsidiary; as well as the Japan-based LCD manufacturer Optrex Corporation in February of this year. These acquisitions will allow us to further expand our sales networks and enhance our business in each respective market."

Consolidated Forecasts for the Year Ending March 31, 2013During the year ending March 31, 2013 ("fiscal 2013"), despite uncertainties regarding the European economy and exchange rates, the Japanese economy is forecast to move toward recovery due to demand from reconstruction projects following the Great East Japan Earthquake. In addition, the U.S. economy is expected to recover moderately while the Chinese economy is expected to show continued strong growth.

Kyocera expects recovery in production of consumer electronic equipment as the impact of the Thai floods dissipates; as well as an increase in demand for components, primarily for smartphones. In the environment and energy markets, demand is expected to show general improvement compared with fiscal 2012, primarily due to projected growth from the expansion of government subsidy policies, including the implementation of Japan's Renewable Energy Law. Kyocera aims to enhance its financial performance and expand its business in these potentially high-growth markets by introducing new products, reducing costs, boosting productivity, and pursuing synergies within the Kyocera Group. Specific financial forecasts for fiscal 2013 are as follows.
