Arab Today, arab today Japan\'s Sharp returns to full-year profit

Tokyo - AFP

Struggling Japanese electronics maker Sharp said Monday it had swung back to profit for the full year to March after two years of huge losses, thanks to stronger sales and cost-cutting. The Osaka-based company booked a 11.56 billion yen ($114 million) net profit in the 12-month period, reversing an eye-watering net loss of 545.35 billion yen a year earlier. Sales jumped 18.1 percent to 2.93 trillion yen on brisk demand for panels, including its popular "IGZO" displays for smartphones. "We have produced unique devices and products while we have strengthened sales activities" including 4K high-definition television sets, IGZO displays and solar batteries, Sharp said in a statement. "In addition, we implemented comprehensive operational improvement measures such as cutting inventory and curbing investment," it said. At the operating level, it also achieved a profit of 108.56 billion yen, compared with an operating loss of 146.27 billion yen the previous year. Sharp has been undergoing a huge restructuring process to pare losses largely tied to its ailing electronics business. But that business appeared to have turned a corner in the year to March, with sales surging 17.9 percent on-year to 1.32 trillion yen. Sales in digital information appliances -- including televisions and smartphones -- were almost flat at 733 billion yen but sales of solar cells surged 68.9 percent to 439 billion yen, it said.   For the current year to March 2015, it now forecasts 30 billion yen net profit and 100 billion yen operating profit on 3 trillion yen sales. "We will make efforts to produce revolutionary products and solutions that will address the needs of our customers, seeking to move on to 'regrowth stage' from 'restructuring stage,'" it said.
