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, the mainstay A3 color MFPs (Multi-functional peripherals) had seen some weakness in the first half of the period under review in Europe, but sales began to recover from the second half of the period, and sales volume has shifted to a year-on-year increase. North America and China remained solid. Sales volume of A3 monochrome MFPs also surpassed the level of the previous year. In our sales to major companies that operate globally, in addition to signing a large contract with a leading financial institution in China, we are winning global projects on the initiative of our subsidiaries in the US and the Asia Pacific region.
In the IT service solution business unit, MFP-related solutions in the US and IT infrastructure management services for small- and medium-sized enterprises in the US and Europe grew year on year, leading to higher revenue.
Revenue in the first half of the period was hit by weakness in Europe and posted a small yearon- year decline, but in the second half of the period, revenue growth exceeded 10% year on year.
In terms of profit, the improvement in gross profit resulting from the recovery in sales in the second half of the period, as well as measures to liquidate fixed assets through sale & leaseback at overseas locations, both made a contribution.
As a result, revenue of the Office Business segment stood at ¥279.5 billion, up 4.0% year on year and operating profit came to ¥20.1 billion, down 7.0% year on year.

ii. Professional Print Business

In the production print business unit, the “AccurioPress C6100” series that was launched in July 2017, and which represents the top-of the-line model in color digital printing systems, has won over customers in the commercial printing market with its automated output control function (which uses Konica Minolta's proprietary technology) and is building up a track record of projects. Significant growth in the business in Europe and China contributed to the increase in revenue for the Professional Print Business as a whole.
In the industrial printing business unit, the “AccurioJet KM-1” digital inkjet press and the digital decoration printing equipment made by French subsidiary MGI, saw further global expansion, primarily in North America, and an increase in sales.
The marketing services business unit was affected by constraints regarding marketing costs at our major customers’ companies, and accordingly suffered a fall in revenue.
Profits declined due to investment in future models in line with the Medium Term Business Plan, and due to such factors as the deterioration in gross profit resulting from the decline in revenue in the marketing services business unit.
As a result of these factors, revenue of the Professional Print Business segment amounted to ¥101.1 billion, an increase of 4.2% year on year and operating profit was ¥2.4 billion, a decrease of 43.3% year on year.

iii. Healthcare Business

In the healthcare (modality) business unit, although sales volumes of computed radiography (CR) equipment continued to decline, sales volumes of digital radiography (DR) cassette-type digital Xray diagnostic imaging systems expanded primarily in the US, due to strengthened cooperation with an X-ray device manufacturer and the winning of a major project. Sales of diagnostic ultrasound systems remained solid in Japan, where we have established the top position in the field of orthopedics, and sales volumes also increased in China. The analog products recovered in the second half of the period under review, securing sales volume in line with that of the previous year. In the medical IT business unit, the benefits of strengthening the client support structure for implementation in the US have begun to be realized. Service contracts are expanding steadily in both units.
In addition to the impact of the increase in gross profit resulting from rising sales of mainstay products, measures taken to liquidate assets through sale & leaseback also made a contribution to profit.
As a result of the above, revenue for the Healthcare Business segment came in at ¥42.8 billion (up 3.5% year on year) and operating profit was ¥2.9 billion (up 134.0% 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 saw rising sales of new water-resistant VA-TAC films, Zero- TAC film for IPS panels, and other high value-added products, but revenue fell slightly due to price pressure. Revenue in the optical component business unit also declined, due to falling demand for end products, but the IJ (inkjet) component business unit posted higher revenue due to strong sales.
In the field of optical systems for industrial use, the measuring instruments business unit continued to experience solid sales throughout the period from a certain major manufacturer of mobile equipment, while an expansion in display-related demand in the Asian market also contributed, leading to a significant increase in revenue.
As a result, revenue of the Industrial Business segment was ¥59.9 billion (up 20.0% year on year) and operating profit stood at ¥12.0 billion (up 87.8% year on year).
