TOKYO, May 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fields Corporation today announces financial information and business results for the year ended March 31, 2011. Good results in the pachislot machine sales continued since last fiscal year and achieved record pachislot machine sales, plus a considerable profit increase. Advances made in monetization of group business by the acquisition of Tsuburaya Productions Co., Ltd, owner of Ultraman IP (Intellectual Property) and a major CG company, Digital Frontier Inc., as our subsidiaries.
Although we were postponing the product delivery date of part of the orders for pachislot machine "MOBASLO" in response to pachinko halls demand, good results in the sales continued until Q3 and so the influence on business performance is limited.
The impact of the earthquake in Eastern Japan is expected to affect the Pachinko/pachislot market but Fields and tie-up manufactures have organized a structure to release a number of new machines including big titles, within this fiscal year. Profit increase in positive execution of group businesses and core contents business is expected. This is expected to lead to setting new records in performance.
Dividends will maintain the amount increased in the year ended March 31, 2011.
Fields Corporation and the Fields Group have a mission to provide "The Greatest Leisure for All People" in the form of products and services to meet the needs of a society with increasing leisure time. We are also identifying business opportunities through research, analysis and forecasting of lifestyle and environmental changes, and developing our business in a wide range of entertainment fields including the pachinko/pachislot field as well as video, mobile content, animation, publishing and sports.
