Overall, the company managed to settle after a tumultuous start – indeed H1 of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015 recorded a consolidated operating loss of $4.6 million (¥552 million), which was attributed in large part to lackluster foreign market (FX) trading conditions. Indeed, the industry suffered in the midst of an unusually tranquil summer, with was due to low volatility persisting from February to late August 2014.

However, during H2 of the fiscal year, operating revenues rose en route to a record of $4.0 million (¥478 million) in consolidated operating income, which helped buoy the company to profitability. These gains were pared by an outstanding balance of customer deposit assets at IFS (Invast’s Australian subsidiary). As a result, this contributed to an operating loss of $2.0 million (¥242 million) for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015.
