In the six months ended June 30, 2017, while the SIOS Group achieved robust sales of its core products led by LifeKeeper and software applications for multifunction printers (MFPs) as well as of open-source software-related products, the revenue and profit from the sales of software applications to regional banks declined sharply from a year earlier.
As a result, the Group's net sales in the reported period were down slightly by 0.2% year on year to 6,226 million yen, with an operating income of 173 million yen, down 47.5% from the year before.
With smaller non-operating expenses recorded in the reported period compared with the same period the previous year, when a share of loss of entities accounted for using equity method had been recorded, the Group posted an ordinary income of 184 million yen, down 37.0% year on year.
The Group's profit attributable to owners of parent amounted to 89 million yen, up 1.1% from the same period the previous year, when expenses related to a retrospective adjustment of 139 million yen had been reported as extraordinary losses.
Open system infra segment
The Group achieved a substantial increase in sales of LifeKeeper in the Americas and a steady increase in their sales in Japan and the Asia-Oceania region. Buoyed by stepped-up sales and marketing efforts, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and other software products sourced from Red Hat, Inc. enjoyed robust sales, and OSS-related products achieved steady sales growth as well. As a result, net sales in this segment were up 6.9% year on year to 3,424 million yen, which was a record for the first half of the Group's fiscal year.
The Group achieved a steady increase in sales of software applications for MFPs as well as in revenues from providing system development and implementation support. However, sales of software applications to regional banks declined sharply. This was primarily because their sales for this fiscal year are projected to shift toward the second half of the year, while the majority of their annual sales had been posted in the first half of the year previously. As a result, net sales in this segment were down 7.7% year on year to 2,801 million yen.
Open system infra segment
The operating income in this segment jumped 32.7% year on year to 107 million yen, primarily due to increased sales of the profitable LifeKeeper.
The operating income in this segment fell 73.6% year on year to 65 million yen, as increased sales of application software for MFPs were more than offset by a substantial decline in the sales of applications for financial institutions.
