Q: What is the reason for a significant decrease year-on-year in the mining machineries' sales of the third quarter? Also, how do you forecast the sales of mining parts and service business?
A: For mining machineries, delivery concerning the project in Australia was postponed from the third quarter to the fourth quarter. Accordingly, sales has decreased year-on-year. However, we have already achieved the amount of estimated machinery orders for the fourth quarter. The persistently low operating rate of delivered machineries has remained unimproved, although there are some differences depending on the regions, such as suspended mines, or mines with a high operating rate. Therefore, we expect more time is necessary for the overhaul demand to result in an increase of sales in the parts and service business.
