FY2021: Fujifilm Financial Results – Instax and Professional Sales Remain Strong

Imaging Segment In the Imaging segment, consolidated revenue amounted to ¥333.4 billion (up 16.9% year-over-year). Consolidated operating income amounted to ¥37.0 billion (up 137.2% year-over-year).

In the consumer imaging field, steady sales of instant photo systems, color paper and dry minilabs / materials drove revenue higher. Regarding instant photo systems, sales of both devices and film fared well. In October 2021, we launched the instax Link WIDE smartphone printer, which can print images taken with a smartphone on to a wide-format film, twice the size of the regular card-sized mini-format film. Due to a newly added function, which generates a QR code for a voice / text messages, location data, a website’s URL, etc. and incorporates it into a print, instax Link WIDE has been well received not only for personal use but also for business use. In December 2021, we launched the hybrid instant camera instax mini Evo, a flagship model of the instax series, which supports miniformat film. Sales volume rose strongly as it gained a high reputation for its classical design and 100 combinations of shooting effects. We will continue meeting increasingly diverse customer needs and offering user-friendly, highvalue added products and services, while also communicating to the world the intrinsic photographic values of “shooting, preserving, displaying, and gifting.”

In the professional imaging field, revenue increased as sales of digital cameras and broadcast and cinema lenses fared well. Regarding digital cameras, sales rose for the large-format mirrorless digital camera FUJIFILM GFX100S with a high resolution of 102 million pixels. In September 2021, the FUJIFILM GFX50S II large-format mirrorless digital camera equipped with a 51.4-million-pixel image sensor was released as the latest addition to the GFX Series, which resulted in the GFX user base expanding. In November 2021, we launched the FUJIFILM XT30 II mirrorless digital camera, the latest model of the X Series, which delivers premium image quality despite being compact and lightweight. We will continue to offer attractive products by realizing high image quality through the GFX Series and the best balance between image quality and size through the X Series. Sales of broadcast and cinema lenses were higher than in the previous year, due to a recovery in demand, which had been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
