<business, business connection>
-25.4%, spot compared with the previous year were +10.5%, thyme and the totals of spot, and, in August, thyme became -15.0%. -5.2%, spot compared with the previous year were -0.3%, thyme and the totals of spot, and, for 17 total, thyme was -3.4% compared with the previous year.

In August, thyme falls in, but, as for this, reaction decrease of "Rio Olympics" of last year sales is the main factor. Sales base of August was roughly flat basically when this was excluded.
Spots increase this year as much as after all it is that there were the Olympics last year, and there were few spot frames. We are delayed a little in July and worried, but we regain in August and advance at relatively favorable pace in September. TV particularly TV TOKYO is the business end, but we struggle and think that support of client is provided when we hear trend of other media in various ways.

It is business-related and, with annual "Kinoshita group cup figure skating JAPAN OPEN 2017 3 regional competition" (from 18:30 to 20:54 as for October 7, sat 12:30 game start @ Saitama Super Arena ※ broadcast on that day), hosts "Kinoshita group presents carnival on ice 2017" (as for October 7, sat 18:30 start @ Saitama Super Arena ※ broadcast October 9 Monday (holiday) from 12:00 to 14:00). As figure skating formation of Japan becomes brisk start, we are thinking that various support of is got.
