A1 : Conditions differ by region. For example, sales of musical instruments in North America and China in Q4 of the previous year expanded substantially as we actively increased shipments of products to authorized dealers, especially in March 2015. However, in view of the slowdown in April 2015, we restrained shipments in Q4. This was a factor behind slower expansion in sales than in the prior year.
Also, sales of audio equipment in North America slowed in Q4, because, in addition to accelerated or postponed shipments of AV products, shipments of new professional audio equipment did not proceed smoothly. We are expecting that sales of audio equipment will make a comeback in FY2017.3.
