Hoya Announces Third Quarter Financial Results under IFRS

Hoya Corporation (TOKYO: 7741) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended December 31, 2012. The full reports are available at: http://www.hoya.co.jp/english/investor/investor_09_25.html

During the quarter, revenues from all operations increased 8.6% to 90,682 million yen, and profit before tax increased 164.3% to 17,634 million yen. Profit for the term was up 215.3% to 10,329 million yen year on year. This significant increase in profit is due to the recording of tremendous expenses in the same period last year suffered from the Thai flooding. Profit attributable to owners of the company was up 217.1% to 10,293 million yen.

For the nine months ended December 31, 2012, revenues from all operations were down 4.5% to 276,399 million yen, while profit before tax was up 45.3% to 59,402 million yen. Profit for the term was up 53.8% to 48,003 million yen year on year, and profit attributable to owners of the company was up 54.1% to 47,903 million yen. This significant increase in profit is due to the recording of 17,912 million yen of insurance income this year in the form compensation for the fixed assets and for the lost profit suffered from the Thai flooding.

"Eyeglass lens business is recovering, though the demand for optical lenses and HDD glass disks are still weak," said Hiroshi Suzuki, chief executive officer of HOYA. "What I must do is to accelerate the pace of growth more in Life Care business."

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and valu...

This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.
Everywhere we turn in our industry we can find strong opinions about the direction, type and nature of cloud’s impact on computing and business.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
