In the nine months ended December 31, 2017, our core Digital Contents business had a strong performance, backed by titles such as Resident Evil 7 biohazard and Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) Nintendo Switch Ver.; however, net sales decreased due to revising the new product launch schedule in our Amusement Equipments business following changes to the market environment. Despite this, profit increased due to profitability improvements in the Digital Contents business, putting Capcom on firm footing to achieve five consecutive years of operating income growth.
As a result, for the nine months ended December 31, 2017, consolidated net sales were 47,740 million yen. In terms of profitability, thanks to the contribution made by licensing revenue from utilizing our intellectual property (IP), operating income was 7,009 million yen, ordinary income was 7,099 million yen, and net income attributable to owners of the parent was 4,439 million yen.
