Fujifilm Fiscal Year FY2017/3 3rd Quarter Financial Results Report… and the Unstoppable Rise of Instax

Share

Fujifilm just published here the results for the fiscal year 2017 (3rd quarter – until December 31, 2016)

“In  the  Imaging  Solutions  segment,  consolidated  revenue  amounted  to  ¥256.4  billion  (down  5.9%  from  the  same  period  of  the  previous  fiscal  year),  due  to  the  negative  impact  of  yen  appreciation  (¥31.0  billion)  and  other factors.  Consolidated  operating  income  amounted  to  ¥28.1  billion  (up  5.9%  from  the  same  period  of  the  previous  fiscal  year),  due  to  the  recovery  of  profitability  in  each business,  though  the  negative  impacts  on  sales  from  yen appreciation were seen.

[…] The sales of instant photo systems such as the instax series and instax films, were strong especially in the United States and Europe.

In the electronic imaging field, the sales increased due to the sales of such flagship models of the mirrorless digital camera as FUJIFILM X-Pro2 and FUJIFILM X-T2 , and interchangeable lenses increased steadily.

So once again, it’s Fujifilm high-end cameras (X-T2 more than X-Pro2), but especially the Fuji Top Selling Instax Universe, to improve Fujifilm’s profitability in the imaging divison.
