FUJIFILM Holdings Corp., announced, in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2024, revenue increased by 3.6% year-over-year to JPY2,960.9 billion, mainly due to strong sales in the Medical Systems and Imaging businesses and the impact of exchange rates. Thanks to revenue growth and the impact of exchange rates, operating income amounted to JPY276.7 billion, an increase of 1.3% year-over-year. Net income attributable to FUJIFILM Holdings increased by 11.0% year-over-year to JPY243.5 billion due to higher operating income and valuation gains on marketable and investment securities.
