Q3 Ricoh financial report

From pentaxrumors

The Ricoh Q3 financial report is out, no mention of "Pentax", as per usual, but it mentions the sales are lower because Ricoh sold its apparel division (didn't they do that earlier??).

Since they are comparing sales with the corresponding period in FY15, when they had the San-ai apparel business, this is still affecting the sales numbers.
To note the drastically improved profitability, which means the remaining businesses perform better (on average).

The report itself: https://www.ricoh.com/IR/data/pre/pdf/h27q3_con.pdf The page above is page number 10. No word about Pentax indeed, emphasis on GR II, WG-40 and "spherical imaging solutions" (Theta).

See also page 11 of the appendix to the report which includes quarterly figures and trends: https://www.ricoh.com/IR/data/pre/pdf/h27q3_con_3.pdf

"Deteriorating camera business environment" cited as partially responsible for the reduction in sales (most of it still being the San-ai apparel business). Increase in operating profit, mainly due to the expansion of the finance business.
OTOH Ricoh Imaging was struggling to keep up with strong demand for the Theta, causing inconvenience to the customers.

Thom Hogan did an article on Nikon and it seems that there is a relation between camera sales, delays, financial results and financial forecast towards share holders from stock market company's.

This is probably also so for Ricoh.

he's always a bit out to lunch... i'd like to see him back up those claims about nikon producing x percentage of cipa shipments, with actual data.

"No doubt that both Canon and Nikon will eventually have large sensor mirrorless models that replace DSLRs. The question is when, which DSLR, and whether they can do anything to make that anything other than replacing A with B."

nikon has already been losing market share to sony in particular, so that's the threat... it's not about nikon robbing dslr market share from itself with it's own mirrorless cameras.

Nikon and Canon do publish their sales in some way. Without open figures one can make an estimation based upon different sources. But then again some call that BS. I like it that people take the effort to sort put things. Being not precieze is something to take with it.

Canon does take sales from Nikon to. But they in the end also sell less then some years ago.
