Its operating loss nearly doubled to 13.5 billion yen, from 7.5 billion yen a year earlier, on revenue of 720.72 billion, which was down 13 percent from 825.4 billion.

For the full fiscal year through March, the company stuck to its forecast of a of 15 billion yen and of 100 billion yen on revenue of 3.3 trillion yen.
