Sharp’s common shares were reassigned from the First Section Market to the Second Section Market as of August 1, 2016. Under our new management system, Sharp executed structural reforms to achieve early surplus, leading to the recovery of profitability in all businesses in Fiscal 2016 consolidated financial results, achieving operation surplus for the first time in 3 fiscal quarters. Following, net income for the first fiscal half of Fiscal 2017 recovered to a level prior to the global financial crisis in 2008.


Sharp deeply appreciates the support from all parties, especially our shareholders, to enable such recovery in business records and assignment to the First Section Market. Sharp will utilize its strengths in creating unique products and innovative devices as well as cultivating a corporate culture to take on challenges, and accelerate transformation to realize “people-oriented IoT” and “8K Ecosystem” to lead to our soaring growth.
