[Qualitative Information on the Current Progress towards Operating Results (Consolidated)]
According to the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), the corporate-use PC market maintained steady demand with the backdrop of good corporate results and growing awareness of security, but the personal-use PC market experienced a sharp decline because consumers withheld purchase in anticipation of the launch of Microsoft’s new operating system “Windows Vista.” As a result, PC shipments in the third quarter (Oct.-Dec. 2006) decreased as much as 10% from the same period of the previous term to 2,591,000 units.

Under these difficult circumstances, our group is improving the quality of our service, besides increasing sales volumes, under the theme “Challenge to a new growth – quality and quantity – toward the next stage”‚ as we did in the previous term. We wish to become a distributor selected by customers in pursuit of customer-oriented attitudes, basic policy on community-based marketing‚ and low-cost operation.

We set “Over a Million in 2006” as a slogan for the PC market We shipped 1,178,000 PCs in the previous term, and we project that we will ship 1,230,000 units in the current term. Likewise, we are making efforts to increase server shipments from 54,000 units in the previous term to 60,000 units this term under the slogan “60,000-Unit Server Challenge.”

We held software solution seminars and security seminars across the country, focusing on internal control and measures for information security. At the same time, we organized “DIS World” to foster community-based marketing and held it in Sapporo in July, in Niigata in October, and in Kumamoto in December, each of which acquired a favorable reputation.

Besides these two product categories, we designated “Security,” “Service & Support,” “Digital Information Appliances,” “IP Phone-related,” “Database Software, Middleware, and Software Licenses,” “Products with Exclusive Marketing Rights,” and “Backup-related” as important product categories and exerted energy to boost sales of products in these categories.

As a result of our efforts, we achieved consolidated sales of ¥257,971 million, operating profit of ¥1,792 million, ordinary profit of ¥1,664 million, and quarterly net profit of ¥935 million in the third quarter.
 
[Characteristics of our group’s business results for the fourth quarter of the current fiscal year]
Both the sales and profit of our group tend to be concentrated in the second and fourth quarters, not only because equipment and instruments are mostly shipped in September and March but also because systems are mostly introduced and inspected in these two months.

Note) Because we began to disclose cash flow in this quarter, the cash flow for the same quarter of the previous term is not mentioned.

[Qualitative information on fluctuations in our financial situation (consolidated)]
Total assets in the third quarter decreased by ¥3,826 million over the same period of the previous term to ¥117,858 million because of decreased cash and savings due to payment of accounts payable.

Net assets in the third quarter increased by ¥2,142 million over the same period of the previous term to ¥36,246 million because of the conversion of bonds with share warrants to stocks. The equity ratio increased by 28.0% over the same period of the previous term to 30.8%.

(Consolidated Cash Flow Statement)
At the end of the third quarter of the consolidated accounting period, accounts payable and accounts receivable decreased by ¥14,937 million and ¥16,962 million, respectively. Outstanding collections also decreased by ¥1,293 million, and the depreciation cost was ¥792 million. As a result, cash flow from operating activities was ¥4,659 million in surplus. Cash flow from investment activities was ¥443 million in deficit because of the acquisition of fixed assets, and that from financial activities was ¥1,738 million in deficit because of the refund of debt loans and dividend payments. Accordingly, at the end of the third quarter the balance of cash and equivalent had increased by ¥2,476 million from the end of the previous quarter to ¥5,889 million.

[Qualitative information concerning the expected business results]
In the third quarter, everything moved nearly as planned, and we have therefore not changed our projection for the business results announced on November 2, 2006.
The expected net profit per share has been corrected to account for the increase in the number of shares issued following the conversion of the corporate bonds with share warrants into shares in the third quarter of the current fiscal year.
