Nikon Operating Profit Surges Upward

Nikon published it's latest financial reports today (FY to 31-MAR-2006), with operating profits surging thanks to continued growth in the digital SLR market and nearly on-target projections of high-end stepper machines.

The camera manufacturer has reaped solid rewards from the consolidation of production lines and the withdrawal from the film camera segment. The company's profit margin has been bolstered by other manufacturers' increased rollout of sophisticated LCD displays and other electronic appliances, all requiring the use of stepper machines to produce the "chips" that enable their capabilities.
