Hoya's 2011 Q1 results published

Look here: HOYA CORPORATION|Investor Relations

The details are here: http://www.hoya.co.jp/english/investor/fs20100803_2e.pdf

Good news for Pentax. Profit is up, while sales is slowing down somewhat after Q1 and Q2.
I guess Hoya / Penatx needs to release new camera's to boost that up again.

A quote:
"In HOYA’s Pentax brand digital cameras, the number of single lens reflex cameras sold
rose from a year ago, reflecting continued robust demand for entry-level cameras, which in
turn resulted in higher sales of interchangeable lenses."

Here is the Pentax quarterly profit development:

To me it looks like Pentax is still the least profitable division with the slowest growth in Hoya, but at least it made a turn around from 2Q 2010.

I guess you meant 2011 forecast, rather than results. We're still in 2010.

We're in the 2011 fiscal year; to be precise, in the (Japanese) fiscal year ending March 31, 2011. Q1 means April to June 2010.

The will need to introduce some new attractive products to change the sales trend.
Perhaps they will do what you hope for....

So sorry. I was mislead by the small print on the bottom of the cover page, which talked about forecasts. But there is even smaller print on page two which explains Hoya's fiscal year. No doubt, this is why I never became an accountant.
