Toshiba grows its profits



Earns better than expected


Despite continuing weakness in its television division and a global slow down Toshiba forecast an annual operating profit of $3.75 billion. This figure is above the $3.6 billion that Wall Street Analysts predicted.

The company's operating profit is down 14 percent from the previous year, thanks to weak domestic TV sales and a global economic slowdown, things could have been a lot worse. As it was expected the LCD TV sector posted a big loss but then again the same thing happened to Sony, Panasonic and Sharp.

In the fourth quarter Toshiba operating profit rose by 18 percent which was better than expected.
