QMGI comment:

This is a very encouraging set of Q1 results from Tamron showing a strong yoy improvement in revenues and substantial recovery in profitability. A key feature of the most recent QMG data across the product group is the very strong margin performance (indicating +862bps) – we note that this is not in either consensus estimates or company guidance. Consensus estimates would appear to have scope to move higher with the current sales forecast implying +5.2% – below the +6.6% guidance and in the context of +19% Q1 performance. We retain our positive opinion on 7740 in our Japan Focus List.
