To Our Shareholders
During the 74th fscal term, the year ended March 31, 2008, the
di gi tal i zati on of home appl i ances fur ther advanced i n the
el ectroni cs i ndustr y, accel erati ng the di ssemi nati on of fl at
televisions, mobile phones, portable audio products and game
machines in Japan. On the other hand, starting with the subprime
loan crisis in the United States that led to financial concerns
worldwide, uncertainty increased in the markets especially in
Japan, the United States and Europe. Rising prices of crude oil and
raw materials also became conspicuous.
In this business circumstances, the Foster Group enhanced
aggressive proactive marketing activities to pursue orders and
sales, as well as new structural reforms.
In Vietnam, second factory started operation during the year in
Binh Duong province and management decided to construct a new
factory in Da Nang.
The Group has established a new production subsidiary in
Nanning, China, and its factory started partial operation during the
year. The Group endeavored to establish more efficient production
activity by promoting Production Innovation Activity centered in
the factory at Panyu, China. As for marketing, a new sales office
was opened in Germany and it was determined to open offices in
Thai l and and the Uni ted States to devel op the group-wi de
marketing system to have closer contact with customers.
As a result, net sales and proft for the year under review each
reached a record high on a consolidated basis.
Management decided to distribute a year-end dividend of 20 per
share as a perfor mance-based profi t appropri ati on and i n
appreciation of the support of our shareholders. As a consequence,
the annual dividend for the year under review has been 36 per
share, which has been an increase of 12 per share compared with
the previous fscal year.
For the 75th fscal term, the year ending March 31, 2009, market
growth toward further digitalization is expected to continue in the
electronics industry although sluggishness will likely remain in the
global economy.

term (FY2008) is To maximize corporate value, by increase both in
sales and proft through quality evolution. Based on the Medium-
Term Business Plan, we will conduct various policies to raise our

Review of Operations (Consolidated)
Changes in Operating Results and Total Assets
Consolidated net sales for the year ended March 31, 2008,
amounted to 86,666 million, up 14.5% from 75,705 million for the
previous fscal year. This sales increase was mainly attributable to
favorable shipments of headphones for portable audio products,
headsets for mobile phones, speakers for flat televisions and
automotive speakers.
Consolidated ordinary income increased to 6,883 million, up
48.0% from 4,650 million for the previous fscal year, mainly due to
an increase in net sales and the positive effect of cost-cutting
activities despite the general trend of declining selling prices of
products in the electronics industry and the hike of raw material
prices. Consolidated net income increased 45.3% year over year to
4, 099 mi l l i on f rom t he previ ous year s 2, 821 mi l l i on.
Consequently, net sales and profit for the year under review all
reached record highs.
Electronic Equipment Segment:
Shipments of our mainstay speaker systems, principally for digital
consumer appliances such as fat televisions, were favorable despite
the shift to lower selling prices of products in the market.
Sales continued to rise for automotive speakers and active speakers
with built-in amplifers. Meanwhile, sales were stagnant in the domestic
and overseas markets due to weak demand for commercial automotive
use and hi-f component stereo sets.
The FOSTEX-branded products suffered from intense market
competition not only in Japan but also in Western countries.
As a result, the segments overall consolidated net sales increased
4.9% year over year to 22,970 million.
