Starting in the fiscal year ending March 2015, the Industrial Inkjet Business has been changed from the Other segment to the Business Technologies Business segment from the first quarter of the current fiscal year.

Starting in the fiscal year ending March 2013, the reportable segments are the Business Technologies Business, Industrial Business, and Healthcare Business from the first quarter under review, instead of the Business Technologies Business, Optics Business, and Healthcare Business, which were reportable segments until the previous fiscal year.
Major products and type of services were also changed. Manufacturing and sale of optical products (pickup lenses, etc.) and electronic materials (TAC films, etc.) as in the Optics Business were changed to manufacturing and sale of electronic materials (TAC films, etc.), performance materials, optical products (pickup lenses, etc.), and measuring instruments for industrial and healthcare applications as in the Industrial Business. Meanwhile main products and type of services both in Business Technologies Business and Healthcare Business were not changed.

Starting in the fiscal year ending March 2011, the Sensing Business was included in "Other Business", and the "Business Technologies Business", the "Optics Business" and the "Healthcare Business" will be the three business segments with net sales, operating income and operating income ratio disclosed by business segments.

Overview by Segment

i. Office Business

In the office products business unit, sales volumes of both monochrome and color A3 MFPs (Multi-functional peripherals) rose year on year. In particular, for color models, high-speed models posted high rates of expansion following the launch of new products. By region, sales volume in Europe fell in comparison to the same period of the previous fiscal year, in which some major projects were established, but North America remained solid and China posted significant year-on-year growth in sales volume.
Regarding our sales to major companies that operate globally, in addition to those won from a major steel manufacturer and a consulting company in Europe, we also concluded major contracts with a next-generation global energy company. In the IT services solution business unit, IT infrastructure management services for medical institutions and electronic document solutions for government-related entities increased in the US, and IT infrastructure management services for small- and medium-sized enterprises in Europe and Asia grew year on year. Following on from the second quarter, the third quarter posted both higher revenue and profit compared to the same period in the previous fiscal year, maintaining the tone of recovery.
As a result, revenue of the Office Business segment stood at ¥427.7 billion, up 5.0% year on year and operating profit came to ¥29.9 billion, down 4.3% year on year.

ii. Professional Print Business

The production print business unit posted a year-on-year increase in sales volume for color products, driven by regions such as China, where sales volumes doubled year on year. The intelligent quality optimizer “IQ-501,” which is equipped with proprietary Konica Minolta functionality that automatically controls output, in improving the efficiency of customer workflows has been widely accepted by customers, further enhancing our advantage over the competition. In the industrial printing business unit, sales of the “AccurioJet KM-1” digital inkjet press, label printers, and digital decoration printing equipment made by MGI increased, primarily in North America.
In the marketing services business unit, there was a continued impact from constraints on marketing costs at our major customers’ companies, leading to lower revenue. In the second half of the period under review, however, revenue switched to a growth trajectory, and multiple large contracts were won from major global customers.
Profit for the third quarter turned positive, but the impact of lower profit in the second quarter has reverberated and profits were down year on year.
As a result of these factors, revenue of the Professional Print Business segment amounted to ¥155.0 billion, an increase of 4.6% year on year and operating profit was ¥5.0 billion, a decrease of 25.4% year on year.

iii. Healthcare Business

In the healthcare (modality) business unit, sales volumes of digital radiography (DR) cassette-type digital X-ray diagnostic imaging systems expanded, primarily in the US, due to strengthening our cooperation with X-ray device manufacturers, and the winning of a major project. Conversely, in analog products, the shift to digital resulted in a small decline in sales volume. Sales of diagnostic ultrasound systems remained solid in Japan, where we have established “genre-top” products in the field of orthopedics, and sales volumes also increased in China.
In the medical IT business unit, higher revenue in the US contributed to higher profit. Service contracts are also expanding steadily.
As a result of the above, revenue for the Healthcare Business segment came in at ¥66.8 billion (up 5.6% year on year) and operating profit was ¥3.8 billion (up 157.3% year on year).

iv. Industrial Business

In the field of materials and components, in line with the increasing size of LCD TVs, the performance materials business unit accelerated the shift to such high value-added products as new water-resistant VA-TAC films and Zero-TAC film for IPS panels, and we managed to keep revenue at roughly the same level as that of the previous year despite price pressure. In the optical component business unit, revenue declined due to the impact of lower sales in end markets, but strong sales of IJ (inkjet) component business unit led to growth in revenue.
In the field of optical systems for industrial use, revenue grew significantly as a result of our innovations in the display panel area of the measuring instruments business unit, which resulted in the creation of new customer demand.
As a result, revenue of the Industrial Business segment was ¥90.1 billion (up 21.7% year on year) and operating profit stood at ¥17.6 billion (up 5.0% year on year).
