Nintendo FY11/12: losses smaller than expected ($532 M), 3DS misses forecast again

Code:
               Net sales  Operating  Ordinary  Net Income
Jan forecast   660,000    -45,000    -95,000   -65,000
Actual result  647,652    -37,320    -60,863   -43,204
(in millions of yen)

Net sales are actually lower than forecast, which is bad. The main reason the losses weren't as great is:

Yen was depreciated beyond our exchange rates assumptions in terms of the rates at the end of the fiscal year, and assets in foreign currencies evaluated by the exchange rates at the end of the fiscal year generated valuation profit (reversal of valuation loss). Therefore, ordinary loss and net loss became smaller than we had assumed.

Edit: sorry for the crappy OP, I'm slightly busy, will update in about half an hour :(

Wii selling 95 million consoles? Bosh! Flimshaw! Motion controls will never catch on. Nintendo has no hope but to go third party.

Hero said:
Wow, DS at almost a billion games sold, that's crazy. Wonder what the PS2 was at.
I wonder if it'll surpass that number. Pokemon B2/W2 should give it a decent boost.
 

cw_sasuke

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free
523 million loss instead of 1 billion usd ?

edit
OP title got updated without providing the information in this thread... erm ok.

What's that sound?

Oh.. it's the sound of western gaming media goons crying into their Halo and/or God of War pillowcases..

They are making their 2013 projections with a very realistic €/$/Yen exchange rate.

Good news for Nintendo.

BTW Nintendo stocks are 3% up LoL

Two copies sold? That's not a bomb guys, stop trolling!!!
They sold less 3DS hardware and software last quarter than they expected, so there will be plenty to bitch about.

Not so much, at least. I mean, they're shy 470k for the hardware, 2 millions for the software. At least, it's not like other times XD

They beat analysts forecasts (loss was expected to be 41.4 billion yen, ended up being 37.3 billion yen), so assuming those forecasts were factored into the share price it should see a rise.

They just barely missed their revised projections, so I don't think they should be all that worried. Maybe people will give them some flack over that, but overall shouldn't be a problem going into next quarter.
 
Oh come on, it barely missed the forecast >.<
The revised forecast. Forecasts tend to be conservative so they can say it beat expectations. They are aiming to surpass the forecasts by a good bit. Especially a revised forecast, which tend to be even more conservative. They definitely don't want to overstate a revised forecast. So even barely missing isn't good.
