Tokyo - Hitachi reported a 19 percent drop in corporate revenues and a net loss for its second quarter ended Sept. 30.

Hitachi's revenues were $24.8 billion down 19 percent compared with last year and its net loss was $535 million, or 48 billion yen, a decrease into a loss of 48 billion yen.

Operating income for the quarter was $48 million, or 4.2 billion yen, a 17 billion yen improvement from last year.
