Nikon Reporting Extraordinary Losses

Nikon just issued this statement regarding the recognition of extraordinary losses. BTW, I am not a financial expert to elaborate Nikon’s current finical situation. But, overall the “Extraordinary Losses ” keyword doesn’t sounds good to me.

Notice Regarding Recognition of Extraordinary Losses and Reversal of Deferred Tax Assets in Non-Consolidated Financial Statements

NIKON CORPORATION (hereinafter “the Company”) expects to post extraordinary losses and to reverse a part of deferred tax assets in its non-consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with Japanese GAAP, for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020.
Using the future plan that reflects the impact and more caused by the spread of COVID-19 to business activities, the Company has assessed an indication that fixed assets may be impaired, performed valuation of financial assets, and examined the recoverability of deferred tax assets.

As a result, the Company has decided to post an impairment loss of 5.7 billion yen for the fixed assets held by Imaging Product Business. And for Nikon Metrology NV, the Company’s consolidated subsidiary, a loss on valuation of the investments in subsidiaries and affiliates and provision for loss on business of subsidiaries and affiliates will be recognized 6.7 billion yen and 9.2 billion yen, respectively. The Company has also decided to reverse a part of deferred tax assets and post deferred tax expenses of 20.6 billion yen. However, the losses associated with the subsidiary mentioned above will have no impact on the consolidated financial results, as those losses will be eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.

Notice Regarding Revision of the Consolidated Financial Forecast for the Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2020 and Recognition of Impairment Losses

This is to announce that the consolidated financial forecast announced on February 6, 2020 is revised as below, reflecting our recent business performance trend, and to disclose that impairment losses are expected to be recognized.

1. Revision of the Consolidated Financial Forecast

Revised Consolidated Financial Forecast for the Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2020 (From April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020)

2. Reason for Revision of the Consolidated Financial Forecast

Decrease in revenue is expected due to factors such as the delay in installations of FPD lithography system, affected by the spread of COVID-19. In addition, operating profit, profit before income taxes and profit attributable to owners of the parent are also expected to be lower than the previous forecast due to the recognition of impairment losses of 11.1 billion yen for non-current assets, as indicated below in “3. The Recognition of Impairment Losses.”

Based on these situations, the consolidated financial forecast announced on February 6, 2020 is revised as above.

3. Recognition of Impairment Losses

For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, indication of impairment for non-current assets was examined based on its future utilization and the impact caused by the spread of COVID-19 on business operations. As a result of measuring the recoverable amount of the cash-generating units in which impairment was indicated, a sufficient recoverable amount was not estimated in the Imaging Products Business and the Industrial Metrology Business and Others. Therefore, impairment losses of 11.1 billion yen are to be recognized. In the Imaging Products Business, impairment losses of 7.5 billion yen mainly for property, plant and equipment and intangible assets are to be recognized. In the Industrial Metrology Business and Others, impairment losses of 3.6 billion yen mainly for goodwill, property, plant and equipment and intangible assets are to be recognized.

Most probably, the working principle of the flashgun look similar to Canon 470EX-AI

Patent Details: (Translated)

In the conventional strobe shooting device, if an auxiliary light such as a strobe is used at the time of shooting, the subject at the distance that the camera tried to reproduce at the proper exposure will be at the proper exposure, but the subject at the front side will be overexposed. Therefore, there is a problem that the subject on the rear side is underexposed.

An imaging device according to the present invention is an imaging device that images a first subject and a second subject, and is based on a distance from the imaging device to the first subject and a distance from the imaging device to the second subject. Thus, the first signal of the imaged first subject and the imaged of the imaged first subject so that the difference between the brightness of the first subject and the brightness of the second subject is reduced within a range up to a predetermined upper limit value. A setting unit that sets different gains for the second signal of the second subject, and a signal processing unit that processes the first signal and the second signal according to the gain set by the setting unit. .

According to the present invention, it is possible to obtain appropriate exposure for subjects with different distances.

Patent Details Translated

The present invention relates to an imaging apparatus.
A technique for determining exposure by referring to luminance in an AF (autofocus) area is known

The user selects the photometry mode by the photometry mode selection unit 216. The user can select the desired photometry mode by operating the photometry mode selection unit. However, in the camera control unit 201, a plurality of photometry methods are sequentially executed.

Examples of photometry modes that can be selected by the user include multi-pattern photometry and highlight-weighted photometry.
Multi-pattern metering is a mode in which metering is performed for each of a plurality of areas set on the screen, and final exposure is determined based on information such as luminance distribution, color, distance, and composition of the subject.
Highlight-weighted metering is a mode in which exposure is mainly determined so that highlights on the screen have appropriate brightness.
In general, when exposure control is performed so that a highlight portion in a screen has an appropriate brightness, exposure is darker in the highlight-weighted metering method than in multi-pattern metering.
