this quarter. This is a result of the globalization and business
restructuring we have worked on since Hoya and Pentax merged,” said Hiroshi
Hamada
, chief operating officer of HOYA. “The profit of the camera business
also exceeded our expectations this quarter due to the channel consolidation
and focused promotion of new SLR cameras; K-5 and K-r.”

to 321,117 million yen year-on-year. Operating income was up 25.1% to 58,805
