Nikon has released its 1Q financial results for the fiscal year ending March 2020.
 
Nikon 1Q of the Year Ending March 2020 Financial Results
 
From the presentation notes:
 
FY2020/3 Q1 Actual
 
  • Revenue and Operating profit dropped ¥24.0B and ¥9.7B, respectively, YoY due to sales volume reduction in entry/mid DSLR cameras and FPD lithography systems, etc.
  • Q1 OP resulted in ¥9.3B, 51% down YoY, yet proceeding accordingly to the full-year forecast.
  • Buy-back of 6,667,200 shares was conducted at approx. ¥10.0B from May 10 to June 20, 2019, which accounts for approx. 1.7% of the outstanding shares.
Q1 YoY Change:
 
  • The unit sales of the high-end full-frame camera increased mainly in Europe and US thanks to a growth in sales of ML camera. However, revenue dropped, impacted largely by the reduced sales of entry/mid DSLR cameras in Asia including China.
  • In addition to the sales impact above, the initial development cost for new ML camera lenses suppressed the profit.
The operating profit for Nikon's Imaging Business fell 15% year-over-year.

Nikon 3Q of the Year Ending March 2019 Financial Results
 
Notes from the Presentation Material:
 
  • Imaging Products Business decreased its revenue (down 3% from the previous quarter) due to declined sales volume of digital cameras.
  • Year-over-year revenue in the imaging business was down 22%.
  • High-end camera sales was brisk thanks to the new [mirrorless] launch, but fierce competitions in the shrinking entry/mid-range DSLR markets suppressed the volume largely in addition with the initial cost, resulting in revenue/profit reductions.

Nikon has released its financial results for Q1 2019 for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019. The operating profit in their Imaging division has grown from Q1 last year and Nikon attributes that growth to the following:
 
  • While the DSLR market shrinks significantly due to expansion of ML cameras, the D850 is still highly evaluated even after a year from its launch: exceeding the sales forecast in all regions and the product mix has been improved.
  • Decrease in expenses such as marketing purposes, and defer of advertisement expense, resulting in increase of operating profit.
Interestingly enough, while Nikon forecasts an 11.3% reduction in Imaging Products revenue for the fiscal year, it's projecting an increase in operating profit of ¥2.8 billion yen (approx. $25 million USD) year-over-year.

More from Reuters including some excerpts:
 
Nikon lifts outlook on cameras, sticks to chip stepper target
 
"Aug 10 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikon Corp said on Monday it now expects unit sales of digital SLR cameras to jump 26 percent in the year to March 2012 to 5.4 million units, instead of its May forecast of a slight gain.
 
Nikon, which competes against Canon , also said it now expects compact camera sales to rise by 9 percent to 15.5 million units and sales of interchangeable lenses to grow 20 percent to 7.6 million units."
 
Nikon outlook breezes past expectations, cameras strong
 
"(Reuters) - Japan's Nikon Corp (7731.T) raised its forecast above market expectations on record sales of cameras and solid demand for LCD steppers used to make smartphone and tablet PC screens.
 
Nikon, which competes with market leader Canon Inc (7751.T) and Sony Corp (6758.T) in digital cameras, said on Monday it now expects to earn an operating profit of 86 billion yen ($1.1 billion) in the year to March 2012, up 27 percent from its previous forecast and beating the consensus estimate of 74 billion yen from 19 analysts polled by ThomsonReuters Starmine.
 
Sales and profit on digital SLRs, interchangeable lenses and compact cameras were the highest for an April-June quarter, despite a historically strong yen biting into profits.
 
Like Canon, which also lifted its forecast, Nikon said it was helped by a quicker-than-expected recovery from supply chain halts after Japan's March 11 earthquake."
 
"Nikon now expects sales of its digital SLRs to jump 26 percent in the year to March 2012 to 5.4 million units"
