Results for FY2018 (from January 1 to December 31, 2018)

Sales

Looking back on 2018, the Japanese economy remained on a growth path, driven by increases in corporate capital investment, particularly spending on IT, although consumer sentiment remained weak. In this economic environment, the Canon Marketing Japan Group successfully achieved growth in IT solutions and industrial equipment, among other products. However, markets for products such as digital SLR cameras and inkjet printers remained weaker than expected and, as a result, net sales came to 621.591 billion yen (down 1.7% year on year).

On the profit side, operating income and ordinary income decreased, mainly reflecting the decline in sales of highly profitable products. Details are as follows.

Operating Income

Ordinary Income
30,519 million yen (down 3.1% year on year)
