 The results report of Epson Direct, which was revealed on the day, is as follows.

  • Last year’s shipments were about 35,000 units (40% desktop, 25% tower, 25% integrated, 10% notebook), which was less than the originally planned 50,000 units.
  • Compared to the actual 25,000 units in 1994, it was 140% of the previous year, but profits fell from a large surplus in 1994 to almost even.
  • The main reasons for the decline in profits are the sluggish sales of notebooks, which was 36% in 1994, and the sluggish market for companies.
  • In 1996, we will change our sales strategy and aim to develop high-value-added products unique to direct sales and strengthen the notebook field.
