increase in net sales and recorded a net profit for the nine months, ended Dec.

Net sales were 2.32 trillion yen, a 15 percent gain year on
year, and net income was 21.8 billion yen compared with the prior year-on-year

consumer/information products segment with growth in demand for Aquos Quattron
LCDs, its 3D LCD TVs and, outside of the U.S. market, Blu-ray disc recorders.
Also the introduction of its open source operating system for mobile phones in
Japan and China was a positive, as well as its Galapagos business, which
integrates proprietary terminals and network services, with an e-bookstore
service as a first step.
