CEO Press Conference

February 9, 2018 (Friday)

Financial Results for the Nine Months Ended December 31, 2017

Hiroo Unoura, Representative Director and
President, Chief Executive Officer
Also in attendance were:
Takashi Hiroi, Senior Vice President, Director of Finance and Accounting Dept.
Eiichi Sakamoto, Senior Vice President, Director of Corporate Strategy Planning Dept.

I would like to present an outline of our Consolidated Financial Results for the Third Quarter of the Fiscal Year ending March 2018.
Following the second quarter, our revenue and profit increased.

Revenue rose by 4.3%, or ¥361.5 billion, year on year to ¥8,722 billion due to an increase of about ¥300 billion in overseas sales, and an increase of about ¥60 billion in domestic sales driven, for example, by increased revenue from mobile communications services of NTT DOCOMO.

Operating income rose by ¥1 billion in total, year on year to ¥1,319.6 billion. While (about ¥125 billion of) metal cables were retired on an as-is basis in the regional communications business, profit from group companies increased. In addition, although Dimension Data and NTT Security recorded an impairment loss in the previous fiscal year, there is no impact of such loss in this fiscal year. This and other factors led to the increase in operating income. I would like to explain the retirement of metal cables on an as-is basis later.
This is the level of progress as expected, and is very steady progress in line with the annual plan. An increase in profit is smaller compared with the second quarter due to retirement of metal cables on an as-is basis, but profit is expected to rebound in the fourth quarter.
