Results for the First Nine Months of 2017

Sales

Looking back at the Japanese economy during the first nine months (January 1 through September 30) of 2017, both consumer spending and capital expenditure continued to recover moderately.
In this economic environment, the Canon Marketing Japan Group worked aggressively, particularly to expand sales of new products and propose a range of solutions. As a result, sales for the nine months between January 1 and September 30 increased 0.6% year on year, to 456,245 million yen.

Income

On the profit side, increased productivity through an improvement in operational efficiency and a reduction of expenses led to an increase in income. Details are as follows:

Operating Income
18,409 million yen (up 16.1% year on year)
Ordinary Income
19,334 million yen (up 14.6% year on year)
Profit attributable to owners of parent

Full-year forecasts for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017

Looking ahead to the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017 and thereafter, the Japanese economy will likely continue to face uncertainties due largely to the impact of overseas economies on the domestic businesses and labor shortages in Japan. Meanwhile, the moderate recovery is expected to continue, thanks to increased capital expenditure and improvement in employment and household income. The Canon Marketing Japan Group has been expanding its high value-added solution business and implementing comprehensive cost control despite being affected by the slow recovery of the market for interchangeable lens digital cameras. In this economic environment, the Group has revised its financial forecasts announced on July 26, 2017 after reviewing the full-year forecasts based on the progress made in the first nine months of the fiscal year.
