I will next break our results down by segment. The Digital Entertainment segment saw a sharp rise in both sales and income, with net sales increasing ¥40.1 billion to ¥199 billion and operating income rising ¥5.9 billion to ¥33.3 billion. The Amusement segment saw a slight rise in sales but decline in income, with net sales reaching ¥42.7 billion and operating income coming in at ¥3.6 billion. Earnings were solid at the Publication and Merchandising segments. This concludes my overview of FY2017/3 results.

I am Yosuke Matsuda. I will be discussing each business segment in further detail and also presenting our outlook.

I will start with the HD Games sub-segment of the Digital Entertainment segment. The greatest contributor to earnings there was “FINAL FANTASY XV,” which achieved global sales of 6 million units faster than any previous title in the franchise. Sales of the PlayStation®4 version of “RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER,” which we released in FY2017/3, were also brisk.

NieR:Automata,” which we released in February, was another earnings contributor, generating sales significantly above our plan. This slide shows our release lineup for FY2017/3 as well as for FY2018/3 and beyond. We plan to launch each of these upcoming titles in the next three years or so.
