The company recorded a fiscal third-quarter net profit of ¥10.4 billion (US$115 million), down 95 percent compared to the last three months of 2007 and its worst third quarter profit in at least ten years. Sales were ¥2.2 trillion, which is comparable to the level of sales reported by Sony in the same period during 2004.
