ヘルスケアサービス事業の拡大に中期的に取り組んでいきます。

We take this opportunity to thank our shareholders for the consistent support they have shown MTI Ltd.
  We released the consolidated financial results for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018 on January 30.

Financial Results Overview for Q1 FY2018

During the first quarter of the fiscal year under review, smartphone unit sales remained sluggish, and the Company had difficulty acquiring paying subscribers on smartphones at cellphone shops. The number of paying subscribers on smartphones came to 5.16 million at the end of December 2017 (down 0.16 million from the end of September 2017). As a result, the total number of paying subscribers has decreased by 0.21 million, to 6.35 million.

Consolidated results for the Q1 FY2018(October 1,2017 – December 31,2017)

Net sales 7,517(Millions of yen) (1.6%)(Year-on-year)
Operating income 661 (42.4%)
Ordinary income 619 (45.0%)
Profit attributable to owners of parent 801 +18.4%

New Approach in Q2 and thereafter

In the second quarter and thereafter, the Company will continue to focus its efforts on expanding sales in the healthcare-related service business and seek to boost average revenue per user (ARPU) from paying subscribers on smartphones in the content distribution business, in spite of a further reduction predicted in the overall number of paying subscribers.
 The healthcare-related service business, which the Company is engaged in with a medium-term perspective, has strong growth potential over the longer term and may move toward a stock type business with the provision of long-term support according to customers’ life stages. Accordingly, the Company is committed to implementing various measures in order to achieve sales growth.
