Overview of 1H FY2013 Financial Results and Business Outlook

"Overall, our surrounding business environment continues to be solid. We're seeing increasing systems integration demand among Japanese companies this fiscal year. IT investment has been withheld since the Lehman Shock, yet with Abenomics, they're now more inclined to invest in IT. The demand for disaster recovery systems, renewing existing systems, adopting cloud services and so on is on the rise," said Koichi Suzuki, Chairman and CEO of IIJ.

"As the concept of cloud computing has received wide recognition, Japanese blue-chip companies are beginning to look at their IT systems differently," followed Eijiro Katsu, President and COO of IIJ. "The shift from owning heavy IT assets to using cloud services is a great business opportunity for us as cloud requires our strengths: reliable and secure network and system operation. We're continuously expanding our enterprise cloud service lineups to support such transition. For instance, we provide SAP, Oracle DB, VMware and many other business familiar products on top of our cloud. We're also devoting R&D efforts in SDN (Software Defined Network) technology and have been continuously releasing and developing its software platform. Some major network operators in Japan have started to use them for evaluation purpose."

"1H13 revenue reflects strong systems integration demand. The result didn't exceed our interim target as certain large SNS and telecommunications clients decreased their network services usage. Weak operating income was due to the increase in expenses as we expand business both domestically and internationally while the revenue suffered from the above individual factor," continued Katsu.

"Having great market opportunity, our priority is to expand the scale of IIJ business. We consider M&As and business alliances as one of the possible means to do so. In the era of network traffic explosion together with the growing demand to outsource IT systems, our expertise in providing reliable network services and systems operation for blue-chip companies is increasingly vital. We continue to strategically expand our business to move toward the next stage of growth," concluded Suzuki.

FY2013 Financial Targets (announced on May 15, 2013)

Due to seasonal factors, our revenue volume tends to be larger in the second half than the first half while our fixed type expenses such as personnel-related tend to increase from the beginning of a fiscal year. 1H13 operating income decreased compared to 1H12 mainly due to: the increase in the fixed type expenses such as personnel- and offices- related expenses, reflecting the increased number of new employees accordingly with our business expansion strategy, the relatively small systems construction revenue recognition while we accumulated a large number of order backlog which will be realized as revenue in 2H13, and the decrease in recurring revenues from certain large telecommunication and SNS game clients for pricing revision at the beginning of FY2013 and reduction in their server usage.

Our FY2013 financial targets announced on May 15, 2013 remain unchanged as the orders for systems construction continue to be accumulated at a good pace toward 2H13. Also, the monthly recurring revenues of network services and systems operation and maintenance should continue to grow.
