Operating profit for the three months to 30 September was Y9.79bn, up 47% from Y6.67bn year on year, while net sales were up 8.1% to Y200.3bn from Y185.3bn, the company said in a statement.
In the chemicals segment, third-quarter operating profit almost halved to Y372m from Y673m in the year-ago period, due to the impact of high feedstock costs, while net sales were down 1.4% to Y21.5bn from Y21.8bn the previous year, Showa Denko said.
